Dovetail - Macon
What a great find in Macon!! We were in town for a baseball tournament at Mercer University. We went to Dovetail for Father’s Day brunch. It was fantastic!!! The food was amazing. My husband had fried chicken egg’s Benedict with a bacon relish. A beautiful and delicious dish. My omelet was incredible. Equally as impressive was our server, Sarah!! She was so knowledgeable about the menu and the restaurant. She took excellent care of us and added so much to our experience. If you have the opportunity to go to Dovetail, you will be very impressed!!
Amazing! Great food food customer service was amazing there knowledge of the menu was helpful
We love dovetail and go often!
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!
Consistently some of the best food and dining experiences we’ve ever had! Food is fresh-fresh-fresh and prepared with seasoning that adds surprising twists to old favorites.
Outstanding brunch! The food was inventive and fresh, locally grown! Our server was one of the best we have ever had— very knowledgeable, helpful, and right on top of it!
Every thing was very good. Sarah was especially helpful. My only complaint was the noise level. But we will certainly come again
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!
Had out of town business associates with us and they were over the top about Dovetail. Thanks!
Great atmosphere. Menu had offerings that were different, but not bizarre. Server was top notch. Would visit again.
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.

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!
Dovetail is one of our favorite restaurants in Macon. The service is always the best and love the food. Oh, and the desserts.....Yum‼️ If you’re looking for a nice place to dine with a great atmosphere, attentive service and good food, Dovetail is the 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).
Outstanding dinner as usual. My wife and I have never been disappointed when eating here. Food and service is excellent.
Dovetail is the go to restaurant when my family wants the best. The waitstaff, manager, and everyone go above and beyond to ensure everything is just perfect! We love it and I recommend to any and all!!
Absolutely LOVE Dovetail! The food is AMAZING and the atmosphere is WONDERFUL! My wife and I have a new favorite restaurant in Middle Georgia! The service is FANTASTIC!!
Great food! Great service! Will definitely go back.
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.
Very enjoyable dining experience. Very delightful staff.
We enjoyed our meal and the waiter was good too. The small plate option was perfect for me. My husband really enjoyed the choices in beer and wine. I also had the blueberry scone for dessert.
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.
Very nice, everything just as we like. They welcomed our service dog graciously.
Awesome atmosphere, service, food and wine. The highlight of our stay in Macon.
Great ambiance and service. The shrimp and grit were delicious and I’m picky about shrimp.
Great food and great service. Really enjoyed the mother's day special and my wife really liked her mocktails. It was not crowded at all, which was very nice and the atmosphere is great too.
Simply the best place to eat in Macon.
Don’t forget to try the deviled eggs-literally the best I have ever tasted in my life!
Our Dovetail experience was "GREAT". The atmosphere, service, and food were First Rate.
Our waitress was super nice and knew the menu so well. She made my 1st time eating there (on my birthday!) one to remember! Thank y'all!
Sarah was amazing .....she made our visit a complete success. We will be back on our next trip through Macon!
Love the menu options. One Gluten sensitive dinner was very pleased with options and quality of the meal.
The waitress was friendly and informative about menu. She checked on us frequently without being obtrusive.
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.
First time but not the last.
Exceptional food and service! Kevin and Sarah were knowledgeable and professional.
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!
Awesome experience. Great food. Portions were perfect. The drinks were a little disappointing but the food made up for it.
