The Olde Pink House Restaurant Ratings and Reviews
Our server, CJ, had to be reminded a few times to bring us a few things we had requested...i.e. more butter (that was never brought). To his defense, he appeared to be quite busy waiting on a lot of tables, which may have caused him to forget. All in all, I found the wait staff to be quite friendly and attentive and actually a group who seemed to smother us in saying "my pleasure" way too often. Additionally, by nature I tend to "cut up" and be friendly with restaurant servers, if for no other reason than to make the server at ease, etc. However, with CJ some of his remarks came across as a little unnecessary (like close to being sarcastic) and they didn't play well with me. Our check was $165 and I must say that I really struggled as to what amount of tip to leave because of CJ's retorts. Nevertheless, we had enjoyed a wonderful meal, so I decided on $30. Not a bad figure, but less than normal because of our server's unappreciated remarks.
The restaurant was extremely busy the night I visited. At the entry, there was a crowd of people waiting to get in (all had reservations), and a mass of waiters running in all directions with trays of food. I was glad to be seated in a quiet corner location. The food was generally very good. But the clientele was very "touristy." Some people brought very young children, with their noisy phone and iPads, which detracted from the dining experience.
This was such a fantastic dining experience! The service and atmosphere were perfection. The food was exceptional. I cannot recommend it highly enough. We can’t wait to visit Savannah again so we can dine at the Old Pink House. We wouldn’t miss dining here again.
We went to Savannah for our annual girls trip and this place was recommended by several friends who have dined here before. This place was nothing short of amazing from the food to the drinks to the service, it was all quite fantastic. I ordered the filet mignon with the asparagus. We were told up front they were out of mashed potatoes which left me a little upset however we were told directly up front which gave us ample of time to choose something as a good substitute. I chose the Mac n cheese and was actually very happy with it as opposed to the mashed potatoes anyway, they were delicious! I order my steaks medium rare and some places over cook this, however my steak was cooked to perfection. We had a blast and loved our waiter, I believe his name was Sam. He told us everything from the ghosts who haunt the house to the best places to visit in Savannah. With all this said I do believe my very favorite thing about The Olde Pink house was while we waited for our reservation we were taken downstairs to the basement bar. It was absolutely beautiful. It has an old cellar vibe, with a slight haunted feel. The ambiance was perfect, dimmed for the mood. The drinks were fabulous as wel as the piano player in the corner by the cozy fireplace. The entire place was crowded but the entire staff was very courteous while moving through the crowd downstairs. This place truly was the highlight of my stay in Savannah and cannot wait to visit next time with my husband for a romantic dinner.
Dined here on a Saturday evening with a group of 4. We had a reservation at 5:00, which was early, but it's difficult to get a reservation on short notice (within a few days), so plan ahead. Overall the experience was very good. The location and history associated with the house is a headliner. One example - The dumbwaiter in the lower level was designed and built by Thomas Jefferson.
The food was very good, although not quite at the level I would have expected based on what I'd heard locally. But because it was reasonably priced, I still felt satisfied with the food experience.
The service was attentive and very professional. Tourists, locals, and evening dressy "dates" all shared the same dining rooms which made for a relaxed dining environment.
For a visitor to Savannah, dining at the Olde Pink House is an introduction to the local culture that really should be enjoyed.
We were initially seated in a very large room. After the intimate dinner we had enjoyed a few years ago at this establishment, it was very disappointing to invite friends for their first experience and it was so noisy. Especially since I made the reservations some time ago I was surprised at the seating. The staff did move us but the second waiter gave us the vibe we were a bother. Overall the staff was exceptionally great.
Historic and unique. The server we had was charismatic and excellent. Knew both the history and the food of the restaurant. Wish they had some more regular food not just food with a lot of sauces. There was a bridal shower next store and the second half of our dinner was rather loud. But overall love the Pink House have been there many times as we are locals.
The waiter was very knowledgeable and the food was cooked to perfection. We were not blown away by our appetizers (artichoke fritters and calamari) but main courses were very good. Location, staff, decor, and the general ambiance of the restaurant are worth the splurge in Savannah for a nice meal.
Great service. We sat in the upper level in a dark candle lit room on the right side of the house. It was a very small room with 6 tables for couples. The service was outstanding and the food was amazing. We tried to order things we couldn’t get anywhere else like their flounder and special for the night. Highly recommend.
We sat by the entrance so noise level was moderate but not too bad. We had dinner here this time last year and had the waiter and even the manager come by a couple times to make sure we were doing well. Not so much this time. Maybe they were really busy, but the food was great as always, the service was great as always.
Went for our anniversary and our server was amazing! She had a great attitude and extensive knowledge of the menu. Everyone who worked there seemed to enjoy working there and interacting with the people dining. You definitely receive southern hospitality at The Olde Pink House!
Several friends across the country said it was terrific when i asked about this restaurant on Facebook. I was celebrating my birthday while attending the Savannah Book Festival,
I have never given five stars on everything to any restaurant anywhere in the world. But this place is simply one of a kind! It starts with the ambience but the hospitality and food was amazing!
We were in town for the Savannah Book Festival ( great event).
Two top table in their “office” room upstairs.
Very nice...smaller room basically for two people tables...
I had a pork shank that was fall off the bone good.
Also buttermilk mashed potatoes...very good.
Appetizer of oysters on half shell, very good.
My wife had their local,chicken dish that she enjoyed.
Will go back!
Ambiance is amazing at the Ole Pink House! Staff greeting and seating guests were extremely friendly and accommodating. Server was slow and kept forgetting parts of our order. The appetizers came out before our drinks. The Maitre De came by and quickly corrected the mistakes. My husband had the 1/2 duck which he said was cooked perfectly and tasted great. I ordered the Pecan Crusted Chicken, dry and no seasoning. Again the issue was handled super efficiently. Dessert was out of this world fantastic! I would actually recommend this restaurant just for the historical/romantic feel of the establishment and the very easy response to any arising issues.
I have lived in Savannah my whole life for the most part, 41 years, and never visited this local favorite. I was extremely and pleasantly surprised. The service was great and the food was amazing. I will definitely return and I would absolutely recommend it.
The food was exceptional, from the salads to the entrees. The fried quail appetizer was one of the best things I've ever had. The mashed potatoes accompanying the lobster were also delicious. Lastly, the service was impeccable--there was no need to ask for anything and every need was anticipated.
I made a reservation about a month in advance. My wife and I had heard that the restaurant had a number of different rooms so we decided we’d go check them out. We got a fantastic tour of the building with some history, and were given a choice of select tables throughout. We picked one and couldn’t have been more excited about dining there. Unfortunately when we got there the table had not been reserved for us. We ended up waiting about an hour to sit. Could have sat at a nearby table probably sooner, but had gotten all jazzed up about sitting at what we considered the best seat in the house. All the other service was excellent, but this set us off on the wrong foot. During our tour of the building we were told if people couldn’t be sat in the room they requested the place would give you all kinds of perks and go out of their way to make that night special. We did expect our drinks or something to be compensated, didn’t happen. We still had a very nice time, ballroom was beautiful and table service again was excellent. Food was average to good.
I recommend The Olde Pink House to anyone visiting Savannah. From the moment we walked in the door we were treated wonderfully! The food was outstanding and the service even better. Our waiter John was well versed about the house and the meal choices. Every person working there truly make it their job to make you feel comfortable and valued. I look forward to visiting again!
Asked to sit on the outdoor porch as it was a beautiful evening. Our waiter was engaging and our meal completely exceeded expectations. This building is actually 16,000 sq ft, although it looks to be just a house from the street. We then expected typical mass prepared food of mediocre quality. Wrong! The fried tomato app was over the most delicious, thick bacon. The fried oysters were sweet, small and crisply fried without being greasy. The scallops were huge and tender, not over cooked. The shrimp (local) were served over a deep fried cake of grits with a delicious sauce. The crab cakes were served with fried tomato. We are still talking about this meal and look forward to returning!
