Apiary or Dovetail?

Celebrating a birthday dinner and trying to decide between Apiary or Dovetail, suggestions?

  1. I think they are a little different in terms of level of food and atmosphere. Apiary was a little louder and more boisterous than Dovetail, so depending on what you're looking for, that might influence it.
    Dovetail has a number of amazing dishes (beef cheek lasagna, lamb loin, squab) that I really enjoy. Apiary has very good dishes as well (cod, although it is a different prep now, chicken and the pork chop), but not always at the same level as Dovetail. I don't think either is a bad choice. Dovetail also has the interesting Monday night Vegetable based menu, and Apiary has no corkage on Monday's, if that matters.
