    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.

    Dined on 10/23/2014
    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.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 10/22/2014
    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.

    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.

It is clear that The Olde Pink House takes pride in its heritage. Savannah offers many experiences like this, but this restaurant is at the top of the list.

    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.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at The Olde Pink House. As recommended, we made a reservation & were seated upon arrival. This historic house is lovely & each of its many dining rooms contain only about 10 tables so each room has an intimate feel. Service was excellent & our food (wine, appetizers, entrees, dessert & coffee) was superb! Compared to other restaurants we visited in Savannah, The Olde Pink House was an outstanding value because it has it all: ambiance, large selection of excellently prepared Southern food, top-notch service & fairly reasonable prices. Don't miss it!

    The Olde Pink House was recommended to us by a friend prior to our short trip to Savannah, and did not disappoint! My starter, the baby field green salad with goat cheese, had a champagne vinaigrette which hit just the right note of champagne flavor without overpowering. I would return to Savannah just to have it again! The nut-crusted tilapia was simply superb. Lovely candlelit atmosphere in charming historic grand home. Service impeccable! Do not miss this restaurant no matter how short your trip to Savannah!

    We were referred to the Olde Pink House and it definitely lived up to its recommendation! Everything was superb! The food was beautifully presented and tasted wonderful! My husband and I split the entrée and appetizer and it was served to us already split up on two plates! I had commented that it was my 50th birthday when I made the reservation, it was relayed to our server and I was surprised with a beautiful birthday dessert. Aimee was our server and she was outstanding in every way. We will definitely recommend to others!

    We were in from the Boston area, and this place came recommended. Good thing we made a reservation far in advance! The place was packed. We had a drink at the back bar, which was nice, but watered down. Be sure to check out the downstairs bar too - the place is very cool. My husband had the fried pork chop for dinner, which was excellent, but VERY large! He also had the fried green tomato appetizer, which was solid, but not the best we've had. I started with the gazpacho, which was fresh, but spicy. I ordered the salmon - cooked perfectly, and the horseradish potatoes were delish. The salmon was very good, but not much different than salmon at any other place. Our waitress was nice, but must have been a theater major - very animated!

    The Olde Pink House is a Savannah must see! The restaurant itself is unique and beautiful! The service was amazing including the hostess who greeting us at the entrance, our server, and other servers who stopped to ask if we needed anything. The food was very good but expensive and typical of fine dining portions. I recommend the signature "Pink Lady" cocktail which was amazing. The corn muffins, fried green tomatoes, and BLT salad were fabulous. The jumbo sea scallops were very good but included only three scallops. The macaroni and cheese was very tasty and the server was very flexible with substituting sides. Overall I recommend the Old Pink House for the good food but more so for the experience and the outstanding service.

    The restaurant is so beautiful, a 1781 mansion with several rooms on 2 floors to dine in, that are tastefully furnished. I thought the dress code would be a bit fancier, but several people wore shorts, jeans and were fine. The she crab bisque was a must! We also tried the fried chicken salad and the Chocolate torte. All perfect. After ordering dessert out waitress told us the mansions history, many interesting tidbits, like the ceilings are painted the palest blue because ghosts cannot pass through water. I wont spoil all it, hear it for yourself. And take her up upon leaving as you must walk into all the rooms and see the gorgeous gilt mirrors against chocolate walls in the ball room.

    Our first time coming to eat at The Olde Pink House it was packed at dinner time so we decided to come back another time so we could enjoy it more. This time coming we chose to eat a late lunch to experience the house during the day. I had the salmon special and my husband had the BLT salad. We shared their delicious key lime pie for dessert. I highly recommend trying this restaurant while visiting Savannah.

    We were there for a late lunch and the restaurant allowed us to order from the dinner menu. All meals were well prepared and tasty. Our server was young (and pretty new) but under the watchful eye of the Head Waiter; he was personable and did a good job for us and well hid his nervousness quite well. We had a great wine for a very reasonable price. The clientele was mostly tourists but several there were plenty of locals too. Atmosphere is casual even though the tables are set somewhat formally. Didn't avail ourselves but a great Bar at street level and separate Tavern in the basement.

Had the fried green tomatoes to start followed by pecan crusted chicken breast in berry sauce which was to die for!

    This place is so fabulous. Everyone is incredibly friendly and helpful. Southern hospitality at its finest. They really try so hard to take care of you and ensure that you have a wonderful experience. Unfortunately, I wasn't hungry enough to eat there, so I didn't get to try all the delicious sounding apps. The salad I had was yummy; although could've had a few more strawberries in it considering it was called a strawberry salad. The entrees were perfect and the favors all melded together perfectly. Also, be sure to go into the basement bar / "speakeasy". The ambiance alone is worth it!
