Excellent food, service, and drinks!! My husband and I rarely get out (we have 2 young children) and this was the PERFECT spot for our dinner date. A little pricey, but definitely worth it!

Dovetail remains one of our favorite restaurants in Macon. Too often in many farm-to-table restaurants, chefs try to create dishes try to be too creative without really knowing which ingredients really go together and which don't. The offerings at Dovetail, however, are always perfectly conceived--delightful combinations. In addition, service is superb! I can't wait to return.

I’ve told multiple people to go to dovetail. It’s delicious. By far the best “fancy” restaurant in downtown Macon. Worth the money. So relaxed and quiet. Went for my anniversary and my fiancée’s birthday and they made us feel so special.

Great experience. I always enjoy the scallops atop risotto. My hubby liked the shrimp and grits, but will likely order something different the next time we visit...it was a different take on the classic dish and he wasn’t a huge fan. The service was wonderful and they made it a very special evening by comping a the dessert for our anniversary, so nice! Will definitely be back!

I always enjoy our time here. However, this last time our server was not so personable. I believe his name was Dillon. Although, he said he didn't like introducing himself to stay anonymous; whatever that means.

Dovetail really excels in service. Waiters take the time and effort to describe almost everything on the menu on detail. It was a lovely experience.

We were in town for a concert. The restaurant was very good. Sara was an outstanding server. The manager was very concerned about my wife's dietary needs and went out of his way to may sure the needs were met. The food was as good as any we find in Atlanta.

This terrific farm-to-table fine dining restaurant was absolutely wonderful as always. I had brunch with a friend on Sunday for which I reserved us a spot through Open Table but I also had dinner there on my own earlier in the week, sitting at the bar.

I live in Apalachicola but I always try to make it to Dovetail any time I'm in Macon for creative cocktails, great wine selection, and delicious food served in a visually interesting setting. It's not cheap but there are small plates, appetizers, and soups available for a more affordable meal and, whatever you order, it's always worth it!

I book at dovetail every time I’m in Macon. It’s my go to restaurant there. It’s very very good! I am a vegetarian/pescatarian so the pickings are sometimes limited, that’s my only gripe. The folks in our crowd said the hamburger was one of the very best they’ve ever had!

Always a must when I'm in Macon for work! Ended up there on the night of a big concert w/o realizing it, so we waited almost 40 minutes for our 7:15 reservation. Even as 4 tops and booths cleared out, the hostess insisted we wait for "our table" to be ready.
That aside, the consistency of the wait staff's knowledge & passion for the food was spot on, the food was as amazing as always- which is impressive after an extra crazy rush. Very impressed by the lone bartender working her tush off to keep up with drinks. Aside from the wait, I'm still a loyal fan.
