  • Disappointed in an Old Favorite
    OpenTable Diner Since 2006
    Dined on 8/31/2014
    My wife and I try to dine at the Old Pink House often when we visit Savannah. The last couple of trips the food quality has gone downhill. This time my oysters were cold, the calamari very chewy and our salmon plates had small portions and were not very well prepared. The garlic mashed potatoes did not have any garlic taste to them. The major disappointment was the bourbon pecan pie desert. The pie was overcooked, rather tasteless and not very appetizing. The service was fine, however the employees were too attentive. We were asked how our food was before the plates hit our table. People kept coming around making banal conversation with no obvious reason to ask. Next trip to Savannah we will seek out a different restaurant.

We had a great table overlooking the square. Our server was charming and extremely helpful. The Olde Pink House capped off a great weekend in Savannah, and we look forward to returning on our next visit!

    It was the perfect romantic dinner for a special occasion! We were celebrating my husband's birthday. From the live music (the tavern bar downstairs and the amazing singer upstairs during dinner) to the food, this was the perfect evening. We made reservations ahead of time and I would suggest doing that. The wait looked to be over an hour and a half without reservations. We got there early so we had drinks downstairs in the tavern bar. It was the perfect ambiance all around!

    We had a fantastic time at The Olde Pink House!!! The building has an interesting and important history and the decor and ambiance were lovely. The food was outstanding (the fried oysters were exceptional) and our server was very attentive and friendly. We enjoyed several courses and a bottle of wine and could not have been happier. We highly recommend this gem.

    I brought my visiting parents from out of town to this restaurant. Everything was outstanding the service the food and the maître d' even switched out a meal I had ordered when he saw my eyes light in envy over the pork shank that came to the table. I would recommend anyone coming from out of town try this savannah spot in the future. The price is good for annual visits and special occasions.

    Food was incredible as always, but I did find the service was a bit annoying after the first couple of visits to our table. It was almost like they were trying way too hard. They were all kind, but I think they might could back off just a little bit.

    Not sure which was best, the staff, food or atmosphere. The staff made you feel like you were the only people there. The food was some of the best we've had in the area. The atmosphere was terrific and the staff gave you the history on the building which made it even nicer. Can't wait to go back.

    We eat out a lot and know quality food, service and value. We chose the Olde Pink House because of it being the oldest colonial mansion in the US and varied menu. The food was what you'd expect from a five star restaurant in a larger city but served by friendly knowledgeable staff (Kristen was our waitress and she was fabulous) and maintained that Southern flavor you'd expect in Savannah. We had the fried green tomato salad, pot pie, a red snapper dish in a caviar and cauliflower purée and for dessert the praline and almond basket and peach cobbler. We liked this place so much, we changed our dinner plans to return another night during our stay. Oh, we had all of this for $108. Who says you can't have it all. Don't miss The Olde Pink House.

    Unfortunately, for our 54th Wedding Anniversary we were seated on the second floor right next to a door going outside to outdoor dining. Opening and shutting that door was noisy and the traffic in and out by waiters was so distracting! As usual, the food was excellent, but my wife and I agreed that eating was like being a hospital patient with nurses, etc., constantly in and out disturbing sleep. We were constantly bombarded by the waiter and others with, "How is the food???" For goodness sake, serve us the food and then leave us alone to eat without constantly having to answer questions!!!

    Best restaurant that I have eaten at during our USA trip. All dishes was amazing and well composed. But the major positive was our waiter who told us about the history of the building and Savannah in general. He presenter each dish and explained what made them typical for the region. This was hands down the best service I have ever experienced.

    What an amazing experience. The home and history are captivating, and the food is spectacular. But the service is top notch, and that pushed it right over the top. Our server was nice enough to give us a tour, and the bartender gave us some great additional history. We felt like regulars and it made our trip that much more memorable.

    First time at the restaurant..I would definitely go again! Had the green tomato appetizer which was so interesting and delicious! And for the entrée enjoyed the onion and sweet potato ravioli. Which had to be one of the most wonderful dishes I have ever had! The flavors were amazing! The service was excellent. If we return to Savannah.. would try and make the restaurant part of our visit!

    Picked Olde Pink House for obvious reasons, but were disappointed. The place is truly beautiful. Wonderful ambience! But the service is serious overkill, SO overly attentive, the continued over-friendliness (which does not feel genuine) soon becomes overbearing and obnoxious! For the price in proportion to the quality of food, Olde Pink House tries to be something it's not. Possibly the worst meal we have ever had anywhere! Bread (blah), App: Fried Oysters (not fresh)taste like the frozen food aisle. Crab Soup: bland & pasty. Ravioli: lovely presentation, no developed flavor, sweet potato wrapped in dough, tasteless sauce. Pork Tenderloin: very small portion meat, very LARGE sweet potato, bitter collards. We chose to skip dessert.

    Brought relatives from out of town. They thoroughly enjoyed the meal. However, we were disappointed with the wine that was recommended by the server. We asked for the sweetest of the Rieslings and the one that the server told us was the sweetest of the 3 on the menu was NOT sweet. I was totally disappointed with this wine. I am dining at the restaurant this evening for an anniversary celebration and will be very careful when selecting another wine!!

    We celebrated our 40th anniversary at the Olde Pink House. The food was good, but not great. The portions were very large so with a app/salad we couldn't finish all the food presented. They gave us a special dessert with a happy anniversary message. The waitress was excellent - good time, very helpful, and attentive. The dining room was a little dark

    I was so looking forward to olde pink house and I was so disappointed, ordered the crab cake for app it was ok, got the scallops by waiters recommendation and although they were cooked perfectly the sauce was very bland, the potatoes were not what we ordered and the veggie didn't have any flavor at all! For as expensive as this was it was not worth it at all! And the waiter did not bring us bread we had to ask a big faux pa where I come from at a 5 star restaurant, we will not be returning:(

    I hadn't visited or dined at The Olde Pink House Restaurant in approximately 15yrs. I was living in Europe most of that time which made it difficult. The staff was very eager to welcome me back though. The food and staff are excellent. The wine selection, if you like wines, and I do, was great. I also perused the beers available and they had quite the selection of those as well. We went for date night. I highly recommend it for special occasions and not just a pop in dinner. There was a little bit of sticker shock for us so I wouldn't recommend it for everyday or even weekly dining. Surprisingly we were full when we left for the evening. The "old world" ambiance is what makes this place even more special.

    Excellent food, service and entertainment. Probably Savannah's best. The table was ready when we arrived. We requested a window or fireplace setting and received both. The waitress and supervisor were friendly and cheerful. The roving songstress helped us celebrate two wedding anniversaries that totaled 116 years. She is always a hit with us. The complimentary desert was appreciated and delicious.
