This was the 1st meal I was a bit disappointed with. I had the buttermilk chicken dinner, and the chicken was NOT what I’d expect from Dovetail! I recommend the burger, salmon or scallops. Forgo the chicken!

Dovetail was an awesome experience. Our server was very pleasant and knowledgeable and the food was probably the best food we’ve had in Macon. After we enjoyed our meal the manager came a spoke with us and was really curious to know how we enjoyed our experience. We loved that....we will be returning!

It was a lovely encounter for our first time. The Saracco Moscato was incredibly delicious. The burgers were tasty with a divine sauce and the pork tenderloin cooked to perfection. We all enjoyed the farmers salad and cheese platter with fresh rolls. Our 4 Desserts were beautifully presented with 2 definitely outstanding dishes - peanut butter banana mousse and the crack pie with ice cream. We will have those 2 again. Service was exemplary and we hope to experience the same the next time we go. Calm, quietly chatty atmosphere. Thank you for a wonderful birthday experience.

Was'nt quit what I expected. The seating for one thing. The food was good. Pricey. Overall, i would classify it as an above average resturaunt bar. Not an elegant resturaunt.

Our favorite place to go when traveling through Macon. Imaginative menu with a good wine selection. They bring out this fresh bread with local jam that is just to die for right at the start. This time we followed with a three cheese charcuterie plate. It reminded me why I like cheese so much. All three were very different with lots of character from a taste AND texture standpoint. I chose the grouper special but although it was prepared exactly as described, I am pretty certain what I was served was halibut not grouper. Normally this would NOT be OK and I should have called them on it but the preparation was so good anyway, I passed (this time!). My wife went ,small’ and ordered a fantastic (and very original) stuffed vegetable cannoli I would drive out of my way to have this again.. We like Brussel sprouts particularly when light and crispy or me when steamed well with some pork flavoring. As described, this was going to be pan seared/fried in hot oil. Unfortunately what we got was a glumpy-gelatinous mass. Fortunately we were so full that it did not matter. We were ‘done’! We like coming here and will do so again when near Macon at meal time.Service was personable, friendly, and efficient. We wanted for nothing. Fortunately we were so full that it did not matter. We were ‘done’! We like coming here and will do so again when near Macon at meal time.

Dovetail never disappoints. They have it all worked out: Setting, Service and Food! Had the pork small plate special and it was fabulous. They said it would be added to the Summer Menu. Hope so....light and refreshing and nicely different. Simply a fantastic place!

It is up two flights of stairs. Had trouble getting in and then it was 1/2 empty until we left. The fish was excellent. The fillet and hanger steak were good (according to the other two).

I'm a vegetarian. Usually when they say vegetarian friendly the food is just okay. The chef really put a lot of work into my vegetarian entree. The server was extremely friendly, they were very accommodating, and the spirits menu is pretty extensive. I would definitely recommend.

Dovetail is our favorite local restaurant. The service, food and atmosphere are second to none. We are never disappointed in any aspect of the restaurant. The menu is limited as any fine-dining restaurant often is, but there are always combinations of small plates, entrees or appetizers that we enjoy. It also has a great wine list. While there are several other local restaurants we enjoy, you can’t do better in Macon than Dovetail

As always, the quality of food, drinks, and service was superb. There is simply not another restaurant in Middle Georgia that operates at this level. I gave it four stars, instead of five, because my steak was done to medium, when I ordered medium rare. A new steak was fired and came out perfectly. This is the second time I’ve had this issue, but both times, the issue was quickly resolved to my satisfaction.

The food was superb. The brussels sprouts were the best I have ever had. The portions were just right and the desert (chocolate bark) was out of this world.

Brought family to Dovetail for a graduation dinner. Parking was somewhat difficult to find, but that was to be expected. Our server was very attentive and gave us wonderful service. Food was very good, but a bit on the pricey end. Our table had a burger, ribeye steak, the scallops, duck and salmon. Salmon was cooked just right, and the duck was delicious. I enjoyed the scallops very much, and the other members said they enjoyed the steak and burger very much as well. The server mentioned that they had a focus on cocktails, but unfortunately, we did not enjoy them too much. It is more likely that we just are not cocktail folks. Overall, I would recommend this place for a special occasion!
