    Exceptional service, ambiance and of course the food. We heard about this historic home which has been a restaurant for many years from friends who told us that it was excellent. We were not disappointed. The grouper was excellent, as was the New York strip steak. The waiter was friendly, attentive and very informative. The maitre de stopped by our table just to chat during the meal, even though it was packed with every table busy. I would heartily recommend the Olde Pink House1

Food was fabulous, beautifully plated and abundant, and service was superb. Will return many times and bring friends. A++ Amy was our server and she was delightful.

    We had dinner here on our last night in Savannah. After trying several of the cities finest restaurants, this one was our favorite. One of the party requires a gluten free diet. The Olde Pink House offered the best options of any, including a praline basket dessert that was wonderful and worked for the gluten free need. The restaurant has 16 dining areas plus a downstairs level that offers music but each room is fairly small and intimate so you'd never know just how big it is. The waitstaff took the time to explain the history of the building to anyone interested in knowing more and they invited you to wander through to see all the interesting features at your leisure after your meal.

    Heard so many good reviews about this restaurant and was really looking forward to eating here. Disappointing experience. Ordered the duck which was very dry, no amount of BBQ sauce could moisten it. Service was a little too attentive. I can say I've been there but would definitely not return.

    My husband and I loved the pink house. It was recommended by a friend . The food was excellent ! My husband thought it was the best steak he had ever had. Anjail was our waitress she was awesome. The prices were that of a nice restaurant but very well worth it . We paid more at a local chain crab shack and the food was horrible . The atmosphere was beautiful ! If we are ever in Savannah again we will definitely eat here and will recommend to our friends as well.

    This is a true "fancy" dining experience in a historical home without the pretentious feel that we have had at similar restaurants. Jarvis greeted us an gave an overview of the home's history as he guided us thru the beautiful maze of hallways to the tavern below while we waited for our table. It was lovely with live music and a vibrant bar scene. When our table was ready, we were guided again to an absolutely wonderful table right by a window. It was a perfect choice, as I had asked for a private table for our anniversary celebration. Our waitress Maria, was a perfect example of superior service. She was energetic, professional and knowledgeable. The food was very good, especially the mac and cheese fritters.

    I was visiting Savannah from FL to celebrate my birthday w/ 2 of my friends. Our reservation started off with a call back from the restaurant asking us if we would like to change our reservation of 8:15 pm, as they had overbooked. We arrived at the restaurant slightly before our reservation & we were seated 30 minutes later. Unfortunately, one of my friends meal was ruined because the kitchen does not know how to cook a steak with a "Medium" temperature. The first filet she received was rare, fatty & lackluster in taste. The 2nd filet, which was cooked by the head chef, again arrived rare. My friend decided not to pursue eating an entree, as we had long finished our meal. I could not in good conscious recommend this restaurant.

    The service and experience at the Pink House were better than expected. My new wife and I were on our honeymoon and we had a very romantic and enjoyable experience with everything at the Pink House. We were seated in the basement bar in front of the fireplace and it was perfect for our first dinner out as newlyweds. We will definitely be back to visit this fine restaurant and we will be telling everyone that they need to visit the Pink House anytime they visit Savannah.

    Upon checking in for our reservation that was made far in advance, we were ushered to the downstairs bar and seated at a small (27in X 27in) table next to the bar. This was far different than the formal, linen covered table that we were expecting and that is prominently shown on the website. The bar was not a disappointment in itself, but just not what we were expecting. The bar was a neat find because it was very old and rustic and primarily lighted by candle; we almost expected some "redcoats" to come walking in. The food was great and so was the service. However, had this been a special occasion like an anniversary or the dinner where you propose to your fiancée, the unexpected change in ambiance could have been a problem.

    This was our first visit to this beautiful, old house. We drive up from Orlando almost monthly during the school year, and while dinner reservations are harder to get, lunch is readily available. We had a fabulous server, who gave us terrific descriptions of the unique dishes. The nachos were excellent, the signature Pink Lady cocktail was deliciously refreshing, and each one of us had a different, wonderful entree. Touring the house before leaving is encouraged, and our greeter turned out to be a very informative tour guide. His love of the house and its history is clearly evident as he showed off the place. I will definitely return!

    One of the best restaurants in the southeast! Options for appetizers and entrees are wide ranging. We started out with the cheese board with fruit and honey comb. Delicious - and, by the way, save one of those hot southern biscuits so you can lather it with that local honey! I must admit that I had viewed the menu before my wife and I had dined and I thought I had decided on an entree selection - that was until I heard the nightly specials. I ended up selecting the jambalaya with soft shell crab and it was incredible. My wife settled on good ole southern comfort food of fried pork chop, Mac & cheese and collards. By the time we finished we were too full for dessert - my only disappointment. Perhaps when I'm back I'll save more room. Thanks!

    Been here multiple times. First time we sat in the basement, however. Very intimate and historic feel. Mac and cheese bites for app was excellent. My filet-cut ribeye was fantastic. My wife was psyched to retry her BLT salad and lived up to the billing. We love going here when we're in Savannah. If I had a complaint, it would be my wish that the sides were a little more plentiful. They skimped big time on my greens and Yukon potatoes. Love this spot.

    Arrived for 8p.m. reservation and was seated within 10 minutes.Ambiance was good. Server offered drinks, was very enthusiastic about their wine menu. We ordered a Pink Lady (didn't wow me) and a glass of Chardonnay/Chablis. Husband ordered Calamari but they were out of it. Went with a shrimp cocktail instead. For me: crab cakes and fried green tomatoes. Both were very good. Entrees were the Crispy Fried Lobster Tails and Crab stuffed Grouper. I asked to sub mixed beans for butter beans and my husband subbed butter beans with green beans. Both of us received the butter beans. We were told 3 times by our server that he was getting us bread, 1 of the House favorites. Appetizers were comped for lack of service.

    The Olde Pink House is a tradition when visiting Savannah. It is a beautiful historic home built in 1771. The rooms are decorated beautifully and the service was impeccable. It is very noisy however in the upstairs dining hall. If you're looking to have an intimate dinner, you may want to specifically ask to be seated in one of the more quiet dining rooms. I had the crispy scored flounder which has been on the menu for over 20 years. The fish is presented beautifully and it was delicious. You won't be disappointed in the menu. All of the dinners that we're coming out of the kitchen looked delicious. Desserts looked fabulous as well!

    There is no better food, hospitality, and service in the Savannah area. Our server was Lindsay. She was very attentive and made sure our every need was met. Matt was also assisting and attending to our service. He was very friendly and checked on us often. My wife had Fried Green Tomatoes & Sweet Bacon salad. I had the Sautéed Shrimp w/country ham gravy. The entrees selected were Bourbon Molasses Grilled Pork Tenderloin with sweet potato/pecan vanilla butter and collards greens and Pan-seared Salmon served/Horseradish Mashed Potatoes, topped with cucumber Dill Salad w/Crème Fraiche. The entire meal was divine and fit for a king. It was delicious and took our breath! The night was topped Sidra singing soulful Happy Birthday.
