What a wonderful surprise on a Saturday evening. The tasting menu was nearly perfect and the service impeccable. I thought the decor was relaxing, as opposed to sterile. I guess if you are not into minimalism, you won't appreciate it. Can't wait to go back and take my friends.

Loved Dovetail - the food was amazing and the service impeccable! It's a must-try.

First let me say...that interior decorator should be shot...yellow gold walls and brown wood tables...I felt like was back in the 70's. Dovetail...what about a nice light gray wall. The food was pretty good, but they dont put a good description of it on the menu. I had to send my food back b/c there was an item on the plate that I cannot eat and was not mentioned in the description. For the money...I would prob go to a prettier and equally good foodwise restaurant.

All of the four appetizers we ordered and the other three main dishes were extraordinary. The cobia though was old, tasted fishy and was overcooked. We grow Cobias and this is nothing like the real one.

Spartan, nondescript $28 lunch. No wine for less than $48! The room was virtually empty -and with justification. 4 small pieces of cornbread-no butter and no refills . Soup was not bad but main courses were meager and not very tasty. If this is representative of the new UWS cuisine I'm glad we live downtown!

I don't know if this place is any better for dinner, and I certainly wont be finding out first hand. We went for brunch - the service was extremely sterile, the waiters left their personality outside I'm sure. First we ordered bloody Marys - for $14 should have been one of the best we've had in the city. Unfortunately it didn't even rival the stuff I have been served on a flight. A mixture of 'complimentary from the kitchen' items came out that were trying to be too "haute cuisine", but someone should tell them a piece of cucumber on a piece of bread really is just a cucumber sandwich, I chose the duck main, which the waiter told me was the best thing on the menu by far. I hate to imagine how bad the others were. The duck was truly unmemorable. Finally a few assorted tiny deserts emerged, and then without so much of a "would you like any coffee" our bill arrived. Brunch for 6 at $350 should have been great. It was way below average.

I've lived on the UWS for 25 years and was thrilled to discover such sophisticated, inventive and absolutely delicious food close to home. It was an altogether wonderful experience with lovely and friendly service for my party of 7.
