Dovetail - Macon Ratings and Reviews
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!
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
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 !
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.
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.
If you come anywhere close to Macon you MUST stop. We go every weekend that we can and it’s our number 1 date spot. Weekend brunch or an evening dinner, there literally isn’t a thing on the menu you won’t like. The staff is amazing and the food and drinks are all hand crafted and made with local ingredients. This is the absolute best restaurant south of Atlanta.
Dovetail has a great atmosphere and the service is outstanding. The seating is comfortable. My daughter commented on how great the background music was. We went for brunch. The vegetable omelet was excellent. The fried chicken on the Chicken Benedict was disappointing. The elements of the dish (including the chicken breading) were very good, but the chicken itself lacked flavor. The hash included with the Winter Standard was sweet, which was unexpected. Overall it was a good experience and we will be back.
First time visit was not disappointed. Explored the tastes of the put ups and cheese plate, the pork chop was thick but cooked to perfection. (Still very tender). My wife said the filet was the best she had tasted.
Afterwards we had a cocktail at the bar, a special shout out to Chelsea the bar manager who knows everything there is to know about your favorite drink, and her passion shows.
If you are a parent DO NOT GO DOVETAIL!! It all started by me and my husband wanting to eat some good quality food while in the road back home to Florida. I chose dovetail because it looked like a place where we could have an adult meal and still have our 13 month old with us. But boy, I was wrong !!! When we finally got to our main course and our little one was chilling playing with his toys on the floor, the manager told us he was not welcomed on” the floor” and he needed to get back on his high chair. So, naturally I asked for an explanation, and apparently a child in the floor is not accepted under their “dining standards”. We did not even finished a third of our $30 meals! The funny think is that the manager,or whoever he was told us, that “they provided a chair and a corner table” To accommodate our child! Like if we should be grateful for their kindness. So upsetting! So, do NOT dare to pretend to be a parent of bring a child to this place where the floor is not even good enough for them to be on 👎🏼👎🏼
