Best steak ever and the Crack Pie was to die for! Great wine list! Can’t say enough about how wonderful this place is! Love the decor and service was great too.
This restaurant is located upstairs from the Rookery on Cherry Street. I would describe the atmosphere as casual, yet sophisticated.
It has a nice bar, with good wine and spirit selections. The chef puts a very creative spin on low country favorites, i.e. shrimp and grits, which I so enjoyed. Actually, I told our server that I thought it was equally as good as Husk in Charleston, SC.
Our server, Kyley, was very personable , knew the menu very well and therefore made excellent recommendations.
We had a lovely evening dining at this restaurant, and highly recommend it.
Dovetail is by far the best option in the Macon area for high quality ambiance and food. I have been here several times and the staff and quality never cease to impress. Dovetail earns my highest recommendation.
Very beautiful location. Nice people in Macon.
We spend two days in Macon. And because end of our 3 week USA trip we want dinner on special location. Good food, good wine and good people.
Dovetail is one of our favorite dining spots. The food is always excellent as is the service. Great wine selection. And the overall vibe is perfect. It’s a great place for a couples’ night out as well as being a gathering spot for friends. You can’t go wrong if you’ve never given it a try. One note to remember. It is located above The Rookery, one of the most popular spots in downtown for casual dining. So if you didn’t know it was there it could be a little hard to find. Just go into The Rookery, turn right and go up the stairs. You won’t be disappointed.
On vacation. Fantastic shrimp and grits and my first experience with pimento cheese.... love it! Our server was super friendly and helpful. Loved the meal and the ambiance of the room and decor. If I’m ever even close to Macon again, I will be back. Thanks for a great memory!
Excellent service and the food was phenomenal!
Delicious meal for a prefect date night. It was a little loud but a great experience.
Excellent waiter! He took time to explain the menu, suggest drinks the complemented our meal, & food was delicious!
The food was delicious. Our waiter was attentive and provided very helpful information about the menu options and the local places where the food items came from. Great place to have an awesome dinner before a show at the Capital Theatre if you want something upscale.
Lovely environment and excellent server. The food was average although beautiful presentation . Portions are small and price is high.
First time eating there. The hostess selected a window table because of our anniversary. Very nice. The waiter was very knowledgeable and courteous. The food was great and unique. The place got noisy towards the end of the night and was pretty expensive, but we both enjoyed the time and food. We will be back.
We had brunch there and it was so good, we decided to try it for dinner. We were not disappointed. We ate a selection of small plates which were creative and delicious, just right for sharing. The service is wonderful and all the staff are very helpful.
Quickly and wonderfully adapated to my group that unexpectedly grew from 7 to 10 people on the day of the reservation. Service was excellent - attentive without bothering. Food was fantastic as usual. My go to spot for out of town business guests.
Dovetail is my Macon go to when I want awesome regionally sourced, thoughtfully combined, exquisitely prepared and artfully presented delicious meals. The bartenders, including rock star Sarah, craft some super tasty & balanced cocktails, and the wait staff are super knowledgeable and attentive. Downtown Macon hit the jackpot with Dovetail. I love love love this place!
I can't say enough wonderful things about this restaurant!! Food, staff, wine list, ambiance... EVERYTHING is always superb!!! Thank you for a delicious dinner!!!
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
Our waiter was wonderful and the food was excellent
Consistently well prepared and presented dishes accompanied by a very nice and reasonably priced wine list.
Attentive and friendly servers.
Altogether a very pleasant dining experience.
I like this place. Nice atmosphere, nice ambiance, good food, apperance was nice, good choice of people who attend, clean bathrooms. Great service.
Asked for quiet "table"on the side was place between 2 really close tables we could barely hear each other?
The food here is always outstanding. I love how the menu changes but everything is still really good. The service is always excellent as well. I also love the atmosphere. Dovetail is highly recommended by me.
We love Dovetail. Excellent ever-changing menu offering local seasonal dishes. Tremendous preparation, fabulous service.
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 !
The bartender is a little slow, but the drinks were amazing! The wine and bourbon list is outstanding! The food is farm to table and delish! One of our favorite spots. Kevin, the manager is outstanding and always so accommodating
Such a great brunch. Best brunch in Macon.
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.
Dovetail was a delightful surprise on a stop into Macon! The service was attentive and the brunch was delicious.
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.
THEE BEST RESTARAUNT EXPERIENCE I'VE EVER HAD HANDS DOWN!!!!!
THIS IS THE ALL MADDEN OF RESTARAUNTS!
Always a great plate at Dovetail!
The service, food, atmosphere, knowledgeable staff, & genuine attitudes made our experience at Dovetail amazing! I will continue to visit Dovetail.
The meal was delicious and the service was lovely. We had a wonderful anniversary dinner. Would definitely recommend!
Great food and service!
Perfect as always!
I had selected Dovetail for a special business meeting. They did not disappoint. The staff was extremely knowledgeable about the wine and local beer selections and even more descriptive about the food. Every bite was delicious. The restaurant setting is warm and inviting. We rated the experience a 10 out of 10 stars.
I have been there on several occasions and the food is always great. Recently went vegan and was glad to see they had a vegetable plate on their menu. It did not disappoint.
Dovetail is an excellent option for fine dining without pretense. Excellent food creatively prepared in a comfortable upscale atmosphere. We enjoyed our visit!
