    We arrived 10 minutes prior to the booking time and were required to wait by the door or outside until our table was ready, no problem but not a stylish way to begin an evening at what we had been told was the best restaurant in Savannah. Our table was ready 15 minutes after the booked time. We were not told there was a bar where we could have a pre-dinner drink. The server was knowledgable about the menu items, the food was good and tasty, I would have preferred my hot main course to have been served on a hot/warm, not cold, plate. All the staff were charming and attentive.

Our server, Bridget, was knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. We would definitely eat here again on our next visit, and have recommended it to our friends.

    I was expecting more of a "fine dining" experience. But it was fun, high energy -- and we had a fun wait person. Unfortunately, we kept choosing wines that were out of stock, but finally settled on one that they actually had in stock! The location was delightful. And the food was quite wonderful.

    The Pink House is a very large restaurant. The menu is sizeable and the kitchen gets the food out quickly. Our server was pleasant but not attentive but took care of a wine problem when she came back to the table. It is a very nice venue and they do a great job of handling large number of patrons. I would recommend requesting a smaller room. We were seated in the ballroom and the smaller rooms looked to be much more appealing. Better yet, ask to be seated on the side street near the bar or in the lower level barroom.

    Our first visit to Savannah began with dinner at the Olde Pink House. All dining was downhill from that night. The food was incredible, we had dishes that we never had before, prepared creatively; our waitress was lovely, caring and helpful; and the building was beautiful. What a wonderful beginning to an outstanding vacation.

    We had our anniversary dinner at the Olde Pink House and the experience was excellent, our server was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and specials. Location is in the historic district and in a well lit, safe area of the city, we were very comfortable leaving the car on the street and walking back and forth. We were seated immediately even though we were early for our reservation. Staff is well dressed and pleasant.

    We arrived for an 8:45pm reservation at 8:40pm and were finally seated at 9:10pm. Our waitress constantly stumbled over her words in an awkward attempt to maintain a formality that might be expected at a restaurant serving such a heftily priced menu. My filet mignon was properly cooked to order although it was rather dry and bland. The potato and asparagus were just as bland. The fried chicken was decent, the cheese plate was too. The macaroni and cheese was particularly the highlight. Overall, dropping $120 for a dinner that might be gotten better at a ruby Tuesday was discouraging for the expectations we had going in. Perhaps it was just an off night but I won't bother returning on my own accord.

Returning to the city where my wife and I eloped 5 years earlier, the Olde Pink House ranked high on our list of places to visit. The staff was friendly and professional. The wine, main course and dessert again exceeded our expectations.

    With our reservation we were seated promptly and the hosts were gracious. There is a singer who comes around from table to table; she is excellent. However, we were seated in a dining room with several big tables, and when the singer came around, these tables made it an extended set and joined in with her. The food is excellent, but dinner is more than just food. We were looking for a romantic Savannah evening, this was not. Our waitress was attentive but not prompt, may have had too many tables. It was so loud that she had difficulty hearing us as we did her. This is not a restaurant to go to if you want a quiet romantic dinner but it would be a fun party place. It's all about what you're looking for.

    From the moment we entered, the staff was warm and welcoming. The service by Alex was excellent as was his knowledge of the building. He went out of his way to get us a taste of she crab soup. The fried green tomatoes were the best we had ever had and the peacan pie for dessert was the perfect ending.

    this is great restaurant with excellent food and service. Everyone is very attentive. We had the two specials of the night; venison and soft shell crab. Both of these were excellent; the soft shells were huge. I had to take one home. Salads were good. Dessert selection was all made in house. My only complaint would be the wine list prices are higher than I am used too and higher than necessary in my opinion. Wait staff were great as they explained history of the building and talked about the history of the individual room you are dining in. It is a definite place to dine while in Savannah. I recommend it. And to comment on some other reviews; we had a 6:30 reservation and were seated immediately upon arrival.

    Coming from NYC, we have a high expectation for service and we do not tolerate bad service at all. Our expectations were far exceeded. When my wife noticed a bit of cork in her wine glass, it was replaced and we received personal attention from the maitre d'. The food was excellent; some of the best we've ever had in any restaurant. Everybody was friendly, helpful, and attentive. I would definitely recommend this place to anybody coming to Savannah.

    I dined here with three lady friends during our stay in Savannah. We did not have to wait for a table, due to making a reservation. We were led to the elevator by our friendly hostess, and entered the beautifully appointed upper dining room. The restaurant was full, so the noise level was fairly loud. Our waiter was witty and helpful, and we all ordered the famous fried chicken dinner, which was delicious.

    Stayed in Savannah only 3 nights, but this was, by far, the best meal we had. We actually spent more at the Chart House, but this one beat it hands down. In fact, it's one of the best dinners we've had anywhere and at a fairly reasonable price. Cost about $156 for 2, including tip and about $35-38 for wine, so, depending on your budget, you could get by for about $50-55 per person if you drop the wine. And, you could go lower than that if you went with cheaper entrees. But, who wants to? The flounder was absolutely out of sight (and this is a review by someone who goes fishing in Alaska every year and brings home about 200 pounds of fresh fish). This is one place that will be on my menu the next time we go to Savannah.

    My husband and I ate here on Oct. 21, 2014. It was a wonderful way to end our trip. I just loved everything about this restaurant. We stopped by the restaurant during the day and were able to pick out the table we wanted to eat at that evening. As soon as we arrived for our reservation we were seated immediately at the table previously picked. For appetizers, my husband and I shared the BLT salad. We also shared the scallops with spinach. For my main meal I had Grouper stuffed with Crab Meat and my husband had Pork Tenderloin. We shared Key Lime Pie for dessert. Everything we ordered was delicious. After dinner we went downstairs to the basement bar where there was a singer playing the piano. I loved the atmosphere at this bar.

    Arrived early for our reservation the restaurant was not ready. 20 minutes later I enquired and we were seated at a table in an awkward location. The restaurant was very busy. The hostess noted that we were not comfortable and moved us to a far more desirable table upstairs. The food we had was excellent even though the order was incorrectly delivered. The overall feeling was that the restaurant was disorganized and unprepared. They were out of two of their signature desserts, one of their signature drinks, and one of their menu items at 7:30 p.m.

    While there are better restaurants for the food itself, this restaurant is still a must while visiting Savannah. Found the food to be hit or miss. Some items very good, others lacking. The place is always hopping and found the hostess to be a little rude. Greeter and waiter and bus boys were very friendly though. Great history in those rooms.

    The food and service was outstanding. It was extremely loud, as all restaurants seem to be, and difficult to hear the person across the table. Our experience was somewhat spoiled by the fact that there was a group of 130 people going in for dinner. We couldn't enter the restaurant because of this group and the lobby area was very congested and chaotic. Had we known that this was a restaurant that catered to groups this size, we would not have dined there.

    I wanted to be wowed and I wasn't. Service was mediocre - we waited over 40 minutes for dessert and our check. The ravioli wasn't anything to write home about and the pecan pie was acceptable. I think there are much better restaurants in Savannah! There is a lot of hype around this restaurant, given its history, and there is a push to get people in and out with not much focus on the food or service quality.
