Hell Yes I Would Go Back!

The last question of this review asked "Would you go back?" Hell yes I would go back to Dovetail. First and foremost, when you spend your hard earned money at a restaurant (especially when your money pays the salary of the employees of the restaurant), you expect the employees to display a certain manner and respect towards their customers. The employees of Dovetail were welcoming, respectful, helpful, and all of the above. In addition to the service, the food of Dovetail was fantastic. The food superseded all the expectations I had after reading all these reviews. For my appetizer, I chose the foie gras and it was delicious. For my entree, I chose the pistachio crusted duck. The duck was cooked to perfection. Lastly, for desert, I chose the chocolate souffle. The souffle was bitter yet sweet at the same time. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

It is time to rewrite the profile for this restaurant. The food and service were impecible and the decor was elegant. Unlike other NYC restaurants the acoustics were perfect and you could enjoy a private conversation. But the food and desserts are the reason to go to Dovetail. The food was creative and delicious. Next time I may have to start with desert because they were fabulous!
