My date and I arrived for a 10 pm reservation. We both work in the service industry and we’re worried that we may not receive that same service as those who attend during normal dining hours.
Upon arrival the host asked if we would like to dine downstairs with the live entertainment however there were no seats available. We opted to dine in the main dining room and were escorted back up. Initially we were greeted by a server who did not wish to have another table so we were seated with Nick instead.
A gentlemen from NYC, Nick was both professional and polite showing us both respect and true southern hospitality. Every course he served was both timely and delicious. His recommendation on dessert was perfect for both our wine and the mood.
The chefs food was cooked to perfection and presented with the utmost care.
Our only disappointment was the very evident lack of hospitality from the rest of the staff including the manager on duty, a middle aged woman with short dark hair. She made eye contact several times but at no point spoke with either of us nor checked on our meal or service.
As locals we will absolutely return if only for the delicious food and to ask for Nick again as he made us feel not only wanted but special on our one night out.
Very nice dinner in a beautiful place. The fried chicken was the bomb!
Bar was extremely crowded where we stood for at least 30 minutes. They were 5 minutes late in calling us so I went to the greeting stand to inquire and they said table was ready. Most disappointing, the food was mediocre. The Chef’s fried chicken was dry. We dined at 4 Savannah restaurants and this was tied for third.
Great south Georgia original environment. We had excellent service and the unique Savanah cuisine was fun.
Very excellent restaurant, food, and service. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting Savannah
To the restaurants credit this was a very busy holiday. With that in mind, the two salads we ordered had been sitting around pre-made for quite sometime. The lettuce/greens were warm and wilted. It was ok but definitely not worth $12. The fried chicken was outstanding but the side of Mac and cheese was cold and dried out. Like it was made a week ago, left out and never reheated. Unless this is how Mac and cheese is done in the south either way, where I come from it was awful and inedible. But the worst part was the service. From delivering the food, to taking our order, to clearing the table, the staff was not properly trained. It took 30 min from the time our plates were cleared to getting the check. There never asked if we would like dessert, coffee, drinks, etc. They did not even bring the bill until I finally waved the waiter down and asked for it. Unless want just for really good fried chicken at $29 a plate I would go elsewhere.
If in Savannah a visit to the olde pink house is a must! The food and ambience is exceptional!
My sister and I were visiting Savannah for a long weekend road trip. I wanted to make dinner reservations at a highly-rated, somewhat elegant restaurant to make it extra special. I researched ahead of time (good thing!) and made the reservations through Open Table well in advance. Unfortunately for us, it was St. Patrick’s Day that had to be chosen for our dinner. Downtown Savannah was a complete madhouse (and this is an understatement); the conveniently-located parking structure across the street was full; we had to try our luck finding a parking space elsewhere. This turned out to be about two blocks away.
That being said, The Olde Pink House is a beautiful historic building. I’m not sure if it was because of the St. Patrick’s Day celebrations, but the restaurant was completely full and rather loud inside. I overheard people without reservations being told that there was a three-hour wait. We were seated promptly at a table upstairs. The dining room was indeed elegantly decorated. If there is a dress code, as I think that a place of this caliber should have, it was shame that many of the patrons were not following it.
Our drinks were wonderful and were not short on the alcohol. All of our food, from the she-crab soup and salads to our entrees, was absolutely delicious and expertly prepared. We were too full for dessert! Service was very slow, however; once again, this could have been because of the holiday.
St. Patrick’s Day family weekend.
Our table was ready. Our waitress was super friendly and knowledgeable. The food was excellent. This was time and money well spent.
Great service, food quality and presentation was fantastic! Can’t wait to come back.
Beautifully appointed restaurant with a great location and view.
Unfortunately our food took an excessive amount of time to come out. The waiter realized this and gave us complementary soup while we waited. After eating the soup, and waiting so long for our food, we were no longer hungry when the food came out. The waiter let us know the food would be free and boxed it up for us to take home. Overall happy.
This was our first experience at Old Pink House and i must say it was a lovely treat! Food was amazing to say the least. We are true southerns and love home cooked food. The collard greens were PHENOMENAL!! We sent our compliments to the chef they were so good! I love shrimp and grits, all i can say is i would eat them everyday if i could they were That good! Next time we are in Savannah we will be back!!!
This was my second time to dine at The Olde Pink House. It has a fun atmosphere and the food is good. I was not aware of the new banquet room, which is where we were seated. It was excessively loud and we requested to be moved to one of the original rooms which they did without hesitation. I was thrilled that they were able to accommodate our request. The banquet room might work for larger groups but if you are looking for a more intimate experience, I suggest requesting one of the original rooms.
The Olde Pink House is awesome. Great food, service, and the basement/ bar area is the best area to dine.
Hubby & I went for dinner. It was our first time. We started with the crab cakes & fried green tomatoes. I followed with the jumbo scallops & mashed potatoes & my husband had the shrimp fettuccine. Everything was delicious. I tasted my husband’s fettuccine and it was super creamy like I like it. We ended with the Praline Basket which was out of this world. You cannot have dinner here without trying that. Afterwards our waiter showed us around and took us to the piano bar downstairs which I had expressed an interest in. The only thing that kept me from giving 5 starts was that we waited a while before we got our drinks. Considering we came the Friday before St. Patrick’s Day and they were super busy I’m not surprised. Our waiter did his best. We will definitely go back.
Food, staff, everyth
Ate here 20 years ago for our 25th wedding anniverary— was traveling through Savannah and decided to dine there again
Fantastic food, fabulous service
One of the country’s best
What an amazing experience! Fantastic wait staff, especially MK. Food was great and the dessert alone was worth the trip. They took extra special care of us for our anniversary.
Great romantic dinner while on vacation
Old Pink House is always very good -- good food good service, pleasant ambiance. Highly recommend!
Good food in an historic home in an historic area. The waitress welcomed us to tour the home after lunch which was kind of awkward wondering around while others are dining. The basement is the jewel, though. Supposedly haunted, the basement cellar looks like the perfect gentleman’s hideout. Nice club chairs, bar and dining in separate rooms. Overall great experience. Super friendly staff. A must stop for any first time Savannah visitor.
Fantastic service and delicious food! I am definitely coming back here with my friends and family.
My husbands birthday dinner. So noisy I wanted to leave. Fried chicken was dry and hard. Very overdone.
Beautiful surroundings but felt it was a “system ‘ Walt Disney
The best meal that we had On our entire trip. Highly recommend this restaurant. Everything about it was perfect..
Our party of 4 was in Savannah/Tybee Island for the week, and chose The Olde Pink House to celebrate a birthday. We were fortunate to have been seated in a small room on the second floor, which made for an intimate experience. Our waiter and the manager went out of their way to make sure we had a lovely time. The food was delicious! We would definitely go back when traveling to Savannah in the future, as well as recommend your restaurant to friends. Thank you for a lovely and memorable evening.
Always a great visit, excellent service and food! Never go to Savannah without putting it on my list! Highly recommend!!
This restaurant is a MUST when in Savannah. My husband & I have tried many things on the menu & never disappointed. My absolute favorite is the sweet potato ravioli! Staff is always wonderful. Highly recommended!
Our dinner was perfect from start to finish. We were seated immediately upon arrival and there were no delays with any of the meal. All servers were very accommodating and made sure we had everything we needed. The food was perfect- we had their signature salad and goat cheese stuffed fried artichokes for Appetizers. The entrees were both wonderful and I’d highly recommend The Proper! This is a must see restaurant- the atmosphere is amazing and is so inviting.
Lovely atmosphere and very good service. The macaroni jalapeños cheese poppers were the best ever. And the fried chicken was superb with very generous portions.
Great food and great service! We had an amazing lunch!
Food, wait staff, atmosphere OUTSTANDING! Great place to bring friends from out of town!
A must go place for Savannah! This was a last minute decision to have lunch here on my last day in Savannah and I’m so glad I went. The food and service was fantastic....the entire staff was extremely friendly and hospitable.
It’s a historic home and I’m so grateful my waitress suggested I tour the home. I’m a history teacher so this was right up my alley. I’m looking forward to coming back to experience a meal in one of the other rooms.
Sat in the study room-only 4 tables, nice and quiet. We were party of 4- each ordered something different, and all loved our meals. Nice service. Tavern downstairs fun place to try too. Food was reasonably priced-a great experience
Fabulous. We had one night in Savannah, and I was hesitant to book for fear it would be touristy. Instead I found it iconic, favored by locals and visitors. Make a reservation. If time allows, go early and begin your evening with a drink in the tavern below.
Amazing!!! We had the most wonderful experience at the Olde Pink House and we’ll be sure to return.
Walking into the this restaurant, I had very high expectations. I would say that these expectations were met, mostly. I personally think that the service was kind of lack luster, to be honest it was kind of slow, and because it was just two of us- me and my mom I felt that there were times that we were ignored. The people next to us, got the check and left while we were sitting there finish with our meal and left waiting for our waiter to notice that we were ready to go, we even tried to flag him down. However, even though we enjoyed our meal, with the service issue I don't think our visit would be anytime soon.
