Starting from the moment we ascended the staircase to the time we were seated at our table, Dovetail was a smashing success. The General Manager Kevin gave us the perfect table for 2 by the window where my girlfriend and I could indulge in delicious food and even better conversation. I had heard of this restaurant before, and no description had done it justice. The pork tenderloin was the most decadent piece of meat I have ever eaten. In my entire life. And the fried/grilled Brussels sprouts with remoulade on the side were easily my favorite. My girlfriends filet was the best she ever had, after being regular steak house visitors. Our waiter had the perfect temperament and was very friendly and professional. The manager Kevin made sure to make us feel special and welcome. The ambience and decor was refined, elegant, and romantic. We will be back as often as possible, in hopes of recreating another perfect evening!

Valentines day dinner.
We ordered house salad, which was big enough to split between us as appetizer. Pretty good (not much a salad guy so..)
I ordered rabbit risotto, which was very, very good. The baked brussel sprout went very well with very creamy risotto. Baked Brussel sprout went surprisingly well with it. Waiter brought this house-made pepper vinegar to try with. Very good choice.
Wife had the pork tenderloin, also very good. Balance between tenderloin amd surrounding veggies were good. She had a glass of wine at the recommendation from waiter, which was also good.
Would visit again

This was our first time at Dovetail and we have found our new spot indeed. My wife and I are foodie's and pride ourselves on finding amazing places for dinner. Dovetail did not disappoint at all. The time went by, the pace of the courses was perfect, along with the suggestions on food and pairings. Can't wait to go back!! Brian & Stacee

Asked for quiet "table"on the side was place between 2 really close tables we could barely hear each other?

I would go again, but not on an event night. They were sold out of many items the night I went, because they had had a rush earlier in the evening due to an event in the area. The manager was very apologetic. It took a long time to get a drink, even though they really were not very busy. I would go again, so I could actually try the things I wanted to eat !

Had the pork chop and the wife had the veggie plate. Both were excellent. Had a chocolate cookie with a peanut butter moose. The moose was outstanding but rhe cookie was hard, making the dessert difficult to eat.

We were extremely pleased with the food and particularly enjoyed the deviled eggs, the fresh salad (outstanding), and the sorghum crème brulee (also, excellent and my wife makes a great one from Julia Child's recipe). However, we were quite pleased with our small plate entrees, the scallops with pimento cheese risotto and the veal tenderloin, as well. The service could have been somewhat better but it wasn't really bad in any way. We would definitely recommend Dovetail.
