    There was a private party going on and the noise level continually increased. The wait staff offered to close doors between rooms, but the doors kept being left open. The hostess offered to move us into another room for dessert, which she did. We finished the meal in a room with a more acceptable noise level.

    Savannah has so many amazing places to choose from, but this is by far or new favorite. We were on our honeymoon and they made the entire evening special! From the delicious wine list and extensive knowledge of how they pair with the food dishes to the personalized "congratulations" and "best wishes" desserts, Olde Pink House Restaurant will not be disappointing in any way. Be sure to make reservations because you will not want to miss this experience!

    We had a lovely large table in a quiet room, which we appreciated since it was a special anniversary. Our waiter was sweet but talked a bit too much about his personal favorites and his wine recommendations without even asking our food or wine preferences or inclinations. Food was definitely not stellar. The BLT salad had delicious bacon in it but was otherwise just okay. Artichoke fritters were probably our favorite item. Grouper was good, a paella/soft-shelled crab special was good. Key lime pie, promised to be "the best in savannah," had no discernible lime flavor! though it was very creamy. Cocktails were weak. All in all, go there for the ambiance but not so much the food.

    Took my wife here for our anniversary dinner. The surroundings, ambiance and the service were all excellent. We had mixed experience with the food (appetizer was very good, main course was disappointing - dried-up twice baked potato, overcooked filet mignon and nicely cooked but flavorless pork shank). Sauces were disappointing, collard greens were good, but mac-n-cheese side was dry (microwaved). Perhaps we were unlucky on the night - but it isn't a cheap dining experience, so I would have expected more.

    When visiting Savannah, someone told me, "If you only go out to one meal, go here for dinner." I now understand why. I have never seen a busier restaurant on a Saturday night. There were people and servers everywhere. But, once you got seated in one of the neat old home's rooms - you didn't feel you were in a busy restaurant. The basement "pub" is very cool - though a bit crowded! The food is very good - not the best I have ever had - but very good. The service was impeccable. I would now say the same to anyone asking where to go for dinner, "if you only go out to one meal while there, go here for dinner."

    The olde pink house is a excellent restaurant that has an amazing menu that ranges from seafood to chicken. The ambiance is very romantic and beyond the food being quite expensive was well worth every penny. Wait staff was very helpful in going through the menu and was knowledgeable on each dish. Highly recommend to all who are thinking about going, but a caution to many. Make sure you make reservations because it fills up quick.

    In a word...DIVINE! I went with a girlfriend for dinner on a Friday night. We split the fried tomato BLT salad but we wished we had ordered one for each of us it was so delicious! I ordered the filet which was melt in your mouth tender!!! It's Kobe style angus beef grass fed and it was cooked to perfection! I substituted sweet potato for the twice baked and was glad I did. The sweet potato came with a vanilla pecan butter topping that was to die for. My friend ordered the braised pork shank and could not have been more impressed with the flavor or tenderness! Her side was macaroni and cheese and it was awesome! We had amazing service...fast delivery of our food and a personable young waiter. As you can see, we loved the place!

    Loved going to the Olde Pink House. It came with great recommendations from friends, so we had to try it. Got there a little early and had a drink at the bar...very nice! Our table on the 2nd floor was in a nice spot by a window and the food was great. We were pleasantly surprised by the singer who was wandering around the room and loved the general ambiance.

    The Olde Pink House has a menu with so much variety. The Crispy Flounder was delicious, as was the side of collards. Hope to go back soon to try other items on the menu. A must see for other diners; the other floors and outside bar.

We ate in the "bankers room" ...upstairs, quiet, romantic! Candlesticks, white table clothes, dark ambience....wow - besides the superb salads and entrees, the desserts were unbelievable!

    The Pink House is absolutely gorgeous. We ate on the second floor in one of the larger dining rooms. Luckily the hostess volunteered the use of the elevator as my husband has difficulty with stairs. The waitstaff was professional, friendly, and knowledgeable about the history of the home as well as the menu. Do not pass up the BLT salad with fried green tomatoes, arugula, and smoked bacon. I don't know why I ordered it because I'm not a fan of green tomatoes but it was fantastic! My husband had the salmon and I had the pork tenderloin. Both were winners. We followed up with one of the best desserts ever! The cocktails were wonderful also. The best meal we have ever had! Don't miss it!

    This was my first visit to The Olde Pink House restaurant although I've been to Savannah a few times. They were booked for dinner, so I went for lunch. They were very highly rated, so they were on my must go to place. I was not disappointed. Although my lunch was small it was delicious. The staff was very friendly & helpful, but not intrusive. I had the crab cake with fried green tomatoes, which both were excellent. I must say the pinnacle of the meal was the chocolate pecan pie. I've never tasted anything quite so wonderful! The atmosphere was very nice, set in one of the old restored homes. I would highly recommend it for lunch or dinner.

    My server tried to interpret what I ordered because she didn't know what a menu item was. I ordered butter beans as a side and she brought me edamame bean medley because she called butter beans Lima beans and didn't think that's what I wanted. The steak I ordered was undercooked and very tough to say the least. The best part of my meal was the BLT salad. I wish that's all I had ordered because the rest of it was a very bad disappointment. I hate sending anything back because it just adds time I do not have in my schedule.

We ordered the Chocolate Mousse Bombe for dessert and it was truly the best dessert I've ever had. We wanted to lick the plate clean but we restrained ourselves!

    We had read some great reviews about The Olde Pink House but were pretty disappointed in the long run. First they did not receive their wine delivery so they did not have any of the 4 wines we requested. Second, the portions were way too big! I had the soft shell crab entree and received the 2 biggest crabs I have ever seen. I would have been happy with 1 with room for dessert. They should offer a 1 or 2 crab option. I hated to waste the food. The salads were good but over dressed. Finally, the service was not the most attentive, the manager actually ended up clearing our table after our plates were sitting in the take us away position for over 5 minutes. In the end, for the money we had spent we would have rather gone elsewhere.

    The ambiance was lovely...big old historic house. The food was very good. My talapia was fresh and nicely prepared but it wouldn't rave about the uniqueness of the preparation. My dining partners had ravioli and pork chops and loved them. Our appetizers were also very tasty as was the peach cobbler for dessert. The biggest disappointment was the service. We had to ask several times for water refills and the waiter not once came back to pour our wine. For the price and for the level of experience that the restaurant is known for, we did not experience top shelf service. We would consider returning should we visit Savannah, but there are so many other restaurants from which to choose.
