Michelle took great care of us! We will recommend Dovetail and her to friends.
Excellent food, great cocktails, wonderful ambience, cool environment and very friendly staff.
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.
Kids with significant others home for Thanksgiving.
What a great brunch experience. Can’t wait to go again!
Probably my favorite restaurant outside of Atlanta and Savannah. Great food, great bar program, and great service.
Food amazing, just had a wait time for food that could have been better.
The food is amazing! Get the pork cheek croquette, asparagus salad and pork chop. They are just wonderful. This place is a gem in downtown Macon
Our dinner was perfect in every aspects. I love the location as well.
Dovetail provided a lovely experience for our family on a very special night. We’d recommend Dovetail for any special occasion or just an evening out. The service is the best in town and food is to die for!
Excellent locally sourced food. Great service. Craft cocktails.
Outstanding! The service could not have been better. Everybody was tuned into great service. Very good cheese plat app and the entree’s were excellent. Shrimp and grits, filet and lamb risotto. We would reorder all of them. Great dinner experience. We’ll be back
Everything was outstanding!! Great atmosphere, Personable and friendly service, creative and delicious food, wonderful cocktails and extensive wine list ... what else can you ask for !? It was awesome ...
We have family in Georgia and the Carolina’s. Whenever we drive from Naples to visit the children, we make sure we book a special evening at Dovetail. Dinner there is Never a disappointment!
Another amazing experience at Dovetail! Always one of our favorites.
Consistently excellent in service, food, and atmosphere. We travel through Macon 2-4 times/year,in all seasons. The gourmet food is always outstanding, servers very knowledgeable, generous drinks. A very pleasant and special find in a small city such as Macon—feels like an uptown experience!
We were driving from Atlanta to an event in south Georgia and made stopping for dinner here a priority. We do that any time we have to pass through Macon.
Great food. Creative, well presented and delicious. My wife had the scallops and risotto, I had the duck over pumpkin pancakes. Ridiculous how good it was.
The small and casual size is perfect. It’s not forced or pretentious. Comfortable.
Worth the stop if your passing through. If you live in Macon, I don’t know why you’d eat anywhere else.
My girlfriend and I went to Dovetail for our anniversary. The wait staff was very friendly and explained in detail each item on the menu. They were happy to answer any and all questions we had, as it was our first time having dinner there. Right off the bat, they asked us if we were celebrating anything and when we told them it was our anniversary, they offered us a free dessert, which was a nice surprise.
The restaurant itself is quite nice. Although I personally wasn't a huge fan of how dark it was, it was still very comfortable and well decorated.
The food was delicious and well worth it. I had the Dovetail Burger and my girlfriend had the meatloaf. Both were more expensive than the food we typically eat but we could taste the difference. The meatloaf had a zesty cauliflower puree and the burger had an amazing sauce. The fries were thick-cut, which I'm usually not a fan of, but they were very good.
The free desert we chose was a Chocolate and Espresso Creme Brulee. It was very good.
Finally, when we left the restaurant I left my jacket behind, and the hostess was kind enough to call me and let me know.
Overall, Dovetail is excellent and we plan on returning!
Wonderful food, service and ambiance. The design, space and location were perfect. Staff was friendly and helpful. There was a great selection of wine.
Great food from local growers. Creative menu and thoughtful service. A winner!
Great as always
This place is a gem! Stellar service, delicious food pairings, presentation & options, I eat here every time I come to Macon!
We always have a nice experience at Dove tail. Great food and service. Always!
Our server, quality & taste of food was beyond great. We love this place!
Dovetail always provides consistently excellent food and service. The Put Ups are a must appetizer to get the table started.
Delicious food, very friendly staff and had the best time. This is truly one of Macon’s best kept secrets !! We had the scallops along with a special burger and it was amazing!! Quick service with almost no wait as long as you have a reservation!!!
The food is very good. Our server was very knowledgeable about all ingredients and preparation. Best of all is the friendly atmosphere! I bought some of their bacon jam and the forgot it. Our server came across the street to give it to me. We will go back
We discovered Dovetail on a business trip. We ended up going every night we were here. Very solid establishment. Great food, great service, great space, great value. Highly recommended.
Our Macon, GA favorite! Never a disappointment on any level. Terrific wait staff and management. Great and frequent menu changes.
I've been to Dovetail about 5 times now when I'm traveling on business to Warner Robins, Ga. It's a medium sized restaurant that is located on the second floor above a more casual establishment named the Rookery. The food at Dovetail is more upscale than the Rookery and has nice craft cocktails, interesting farm to table style of food, and a casual/upscale ambiance. The food here is consistent, tasty, and certainly southern cooking influenced. It is a very nice place to visit if you're a foody.
My only suggestion, it's time to change up the menu... Add more interesting daily specials, and add additional items and remove those that may not be working.
From my perspective, stagnant restaurant menus eventually kill a restaurant. People want to try new things...
Otherwise, enjoy the bacon marmalade on the charcuterie plate , the shrimp and grits, the scallops, and the steaks...
Fantastic, as always! This is our favorite spot in Macon and surrounding area.
The whole menu is delicious. I highly recommend making reservations ahead of time.
The cracked pie is phenomenal.
Would love some sound absorption panels to be installed.
It was our first time to Macon, GA and I had a dinner with customers at DoveTail. Everyone raved about their dinner! Highly recommend!
Best restaurant we've been to in Macon! Everything was superb!
Magnificent in Macon! A top dining experience to which all others will be compared.
The 1842 Inn recommended Dovetail as my wife and I drove to town from Milledgeville. GA. We checked out the menu online and booked via OpenTable. We arrived at 5:30pm as DoveTail was opening and were promptly seated in a small corner table by the window with a lit candle. Sarah guided us through the truly amazing and extensive cocktail menu. (She also discussed Flannery O'Connor's writing with us after learning that we had visited her home earlier that day!)
We learned about the many different farm-to-table options available for appetizers as well as the main courses. I'm a standard "meat and potatoes" guy; however, trusting my wife and Sarah provided me with a truly positive dining experience.
Our dessert and after dinner drinks were superb as well.
Two hours later we emerged, very happy that we visited Macon, the 1842 Inn and Dovetail.
Wonderful evening out! Excellent food and service!
Food was good. Service was great.
Good service and food. Noise level a little high but very enjoyable evening.
My husband, son, daughter-in-love and I had a very nice dinner. We all had the shrimp and grits with two of them made without sausage b/c 2 of us were vegetarians. Our waitress/bartender was extremely informative and amazing. It was our first time and we will be back.
Our waitress was excellent; she was knowledgable about the variety of cheeses on our charcuterie tray and the different items on the menu. Food was delicious and with 6 of us, we tried many different items. Drinks are wonderful and the two desserts we had (buttermilk pie and crack pie) were worth every calorie. One of our favorite venues in Macon. Only negative is lots of others know that too so you need to book reservations early in the week.
