I love Dovetail! Everyone I’ve brought for either brunch or dinner has been thoroughly impressed, so it’s my go-to spot in Macon

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!

Dovetail is an excellent dining destination that continues to impress us with inventive but not fussy dishes using quality ingredients. The service is top notch and friendly and it's our favorite restaurant in Macon.

Always enjoy eating at Dovetail. It is no doubt the best dinning experience in middle Georgia. The atmosphere is cozy and sophisticated. The food is delicious and the staff are very attentive.

Our first time dining at Dovetail and cannot say enough about how wonderful our experience was! The Asparagus Salad was a delicious surprise! The Staff was amazing but the food was even more so! Will be dining here again in the near future!

Dovetail never disappoints. The service is always on point and the food very tasty. There was a holiday crowd there when we went that seemed to linger at their table longer than normal, which delayed our seating time. Usually, not the case. I will suggest they swap up their Sunday Brunch menu. It is time to bring some more excitement to the table!

Wonderful cozy place for a ladies brunch. The food was exquisite and fresh. Pretty generous portions!
Service was excellent. Every time my water glass was half full, our server was pouring more.
She was attentive, but not at all bothersome.
She suggested the omelette of the day with mushrooms, asparagus, and goat cheese..... like buttah!
Everything is grown or raised in GA!
LOVE THIS PLACE!

This restaurant was amazing. Decided to take my wife here for a romantic dinner out and the Dovetail did not disappoint. Great service, great food and the Cracked Pie for dessert was awesome. Can't wait to visit again when I'm back in Macon. Thanks to Kevin and the entire Dovetail team.
