Gorgeous plating and a contemporary atmosphere which was in line with its name. I tried the fuji apple salad, grilled king trumpet mushroom, baked cauliflower, cheddar cornbread, miso-roasted beets. Taste was innovative, varied, and usually hit the mark. Cauliflower was a bit salty. The texture of the vegetables was impressive; meat was not missed. The beets came with an interesting lime buttermilk sauce. The deserts, particularly the coffee semifreddo was amazing and melted in the mouth. It had a delicious coffee soaked almond crumble. Devil's food cake was indulgent. Great service, great atmosphere, great food.

I was really excited to have a dinner at this place but got really dissapointed. Great app and entree everything else was below average. The food is really good, but it doesn't worth the trouble and the money. Reservation got delayed for 45 minutes and not even a compliment. It takes 3 hours to have a dinner. The pastry chef should get fired, plus the naming of the desserts is misleading and far from what it's supposed to be. Additionally the pastry chef totally miss any key ingredient. Be careful to check the ticket for the coats, the hostess is totally under stress and pressure and she just can't deliver from the start to the end ;).

An elegant, traditional restaurant in the Upper West Side, Dovetail is overseen by Chef Jon Fraser. The focus on seasonal vegetables is evident from the start, with the Vegetable Tasting Menu offered daily and the Monday Vegetable Menu offered weekly. The weekend brunch is one of the better times to visit the restaurant, as the three course prix-fixe is one of the better deals in the city. Diners start with a variety of canapes, can choose their own main courses, and end the meal with a similar spread of sweet treats. The Crab Benedict is one of the stand out dishes here, and perfectly plated.

The Restaurant Week menu that I had was quite delicate, and I thought it was a good representation of the restaurant's "New American" cuisine. The steak I ordered was perfectly tender and juicy. Service and attention to detail was impeccable, and it was overall a very nice experience. Great place to eat before or after wandering around the nearby Museum of Natural History.

An elegant, modern American restaurant in the Upper West Side with a great value prix fixe brunch, which starts off with a variety of canapes, the main course you select among numerous well thought options, and a great spread of miniature desserts. Great service, nice ambiance, even though a little bit more light would have been welcome.

Seriously? I've had better service at Olive Garden than at this Michelin starred establishment. Dovetail, my two girlfriends and I wanted to love you. But you gave the wrong plate to the wrong person for all three of our courses. And made us wait 30 minutes for the coffee we ordered upon getting seated (finally arrived after the appetizers). And then slid the wrong entree onto my place setting, while pushing my coffee off kilter in its saucer, with the plate. Then you clumsily switched our silverware to match the entrees you misplaced. The salmon croquante was tasty, with the toasty buttery crisp ensuring a dreamy crunch on the skin side. The potatoes (from steak + potatoes) were amazing as well. But you didn't come check on us during our mains. AND, you let my football-shaped ice cream blob tumble off the plate when again serving our dessert orders to the wrong recipients. AND, after saying "Sorry I'll need to get you more ice cream," LEFT THE SCOOP ON THE TABLECLOTH to melt for 20 minutes before someone (with a very impressive moustache) finally scraped it away. Sigh. Shake Shack, I'm sorry I passed you by... I've learned my lesson.

Sunday brunch food was modest, but in a nice setting. Downstairs smelled of mold. Staff was joking around noisily

This place is fantastic! The food is not only delicious, it is also beautifully prepared. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the selection of foods and wine pairings. At the end of the meal, they brought out chocolate samples for us to try- including a freaky bacon favored one that I refused, but my friends' loved. The atmosphere is very cozy and dimly lit, perfect for a date night. The only thing they lost a point for: everything is done incredibly slowwwwly. The waiter took a long time to take our order, the cornbread came 25minutes after we ordered our meal (I'm talking the bread basket here). The main course came out 1.5-2 hours after we ordered. I love to chat with my friends over a long luxurious meal, but the whole thing took over 3 hours, so not a good place to go if you're hungry and want food immediately.
