Outstanding food , service and ambiance! A Savannah classic romantic night out. – This is a Savannah must. My husband and I have been twice, the first time on our honeymoon. It is so romantic, beautiful and breathtaking. This historic mansion offers the best food, service and ambiance. We always speak so highly of Savannah, and always recommend The Olde Pink House! Thank you for wonderful memories!
Great food - disorganized service – We had reservations for 5 on Saturday evening - so there weren't very many other guests in the restaurant...lots of servers and dining room managers hanging around. Our drink orders and food orders were taken quickly and we got bread and salad. Then we waited and waited and waited. Other tables arrived and were served and we continued to wait for our entrees. 45 minutes later, the entrees arrived and were delicious and our server returned one time to check that everything was good. Then he was MIA for nearly another 40 minutes. Needless to say, we had to ask the dining room manager for the check before anybody came back to ask us if we wanted dessert. We loved the food, but there is no reason to spend the whole evening waiting for it - or the server. Make the food, serve it in a reasonable amount of time, and we might return some day for the food. Never had better steak...
Love It! – This place is so fabulous. I was really impressed with the service. The food was great! It is awesome how they can take a house and make it into such a beautful functional restaurant. I would definitely go back. it's one of the many places worth going to in Savannah
Great Food- Bizarre Service- Ghosts Can Apply – We had a party of four and had reservations. All of us were very excited to eat dinner
at the Olde Pink House - heard lots of good things about it. Our waitress seated us
in a very nice private area upstairs. It was quiet and serene looking over the square.
That was about the last moment of quiet and serene we had all night. The food was
absolutely wonderful but out service was bizarre beyond compare. The waitress started
out telling ghost stories to the table next to us. Served us our entrees and we mentioned
we hadn't been served our soups and salads yet. She had the nerve to say go ahead
and eat your entrees and soups and salads will be coming soon. I said that we would
not have our entrees until we had the soups and salads first. The restaurant floor
manager was with the waitress when this happened and did say she was very sorry and our
salads and soups were on the house. Entrees took forever - and the waitress said she
was detained by a couple taking a picture on the floor below and a ghost appeared in
the picture. At that point we would have been happy to have a ghost appear and
serve our meal. She got our dessert order wrong and the entire meal took
three hours. Food was fabulous. Service bizarre.
The Pink House Open for LUNCH! – I recently found that the Pink House is now open for lunch!! I know of many people that have eaten there for dinner and have mainly commented on how great the house itself is and how wonderful the food tastes. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the house was just as charming during the day, with seating both inside and outside, and the menu was perfect for lunch. I was not planning on ordering an appetizer for lunch, or dessert for that matter, but the waitress was wonderful in pairing items together and suggesting things that would be enough to fill me up but not overwhelming. My waitress was also more than willing to answer all of my questions about the menu. I recommend the Pink House not only for the food but for the fantastic service! I give this new venture of the Pink House a big thumbs up!
Overrated – Very dissapointing and not romantic, as touted. The upstairs room was old and not terribly asthetic. Although our table was one of two most requested according to a hostess, my view was through a tree to a parking garage. My wife at least had a peek at the square below. The wine list was shallow and resembled a supermarket selection. The "French" Pinot Noir (not Burgundy) was described as "French grapes bottled in California"? At $30 a bottle I thought I would take a chance. You would find this one stocked near the bottom shelf. Although asparagus were fresh and in season, the chef chose to use something not local, ditto the hericot vert, which our nervous waiter just loved to repeat over and over. Even though we had 2 waiters assigned to our table, my wife's she-crab soup arrived long before she was finished with her salad course. When the timing mistake was identified, the soup was removed and returned some 15 minutes later served just barely hot enough. The drizzling of sherry tableside was an unnecessary bit of showmanship. I recommend Harry's in St. Augustine here. My wife's mojito was "not the real deal" as described by the waiter (who was from Miami). Hmmm, perhaps he could enlighten the bartender? The crab cake was soggy and left uneaten. My grilled flounder with fruit chutney was adequate. The hostess reappeared and I let her know I was not happy at all with the service, mentioning that two other tables had eaten and departed. She removed the apps and the soup from the bill, and could not justify tipping our waitstaff. Avoid The OldePink House.
Savannah's Most Beautiful Restaurant! Beautiful Fresh Seafood & Staff! Very Romantic! – Thank goodness General Sherman didn't burn down Savannah, like he did Atlanta. The Old Pink House sits right on one of those famous squares, that dot the downtown historic district. Pale pink exterior, that invites one in for one of the most romantic dining spots anywhere. Fireplaces, especially good this time of year, antiques, and a very caring staff. Start with the best She-Crab soup you will ever have in your life, with just the right amount of Sherry. All the fresh seafood entree's are wonderful, especially the crab-cakes and seared scallops. You might want to dress casual-dressy, and you will fit right in. Be prepared to hear the ghost stories. And finish the night downstairs, in the small intimate bar. Old Pink House is one of the places that makes Savannah, special and romantic!
Delicious Food – My now-fiance took me to this restaurant the night we got engaged. He was trying to set a romantic mood with not only the food, but the atmosphere. He requested I dress up and he wore a suit. I ended up wearing a cocktail dress. We were over-dressed. Most of the others in the restaurant were in casual clothes. However, that was the only thing I wasn't completely satisfied with. The dinner was absolutely enchanting. The staff was so friendly and kept us in a light mood. The flour-less chocolate cake (a personal favorite of ours) was amazing. It's something you should not miss out on. I can't remember exactly what we ate, but we had two different dinners and and appetizer. I tried his and he tried mine and it was all phenomonal. I can't wait to go back. The park across the road is also a bonus at dark!
Romantic Savannah dining at its best – My boyfriend and I went to the restaurant during our trip to Savannah November 8-12. The house really stands out along the square and has a lot of history, which we heard all about on our tour. We headed first to the bar downstairs, which was amazing. It was crowded, had a piano player, and a roaring fire. I ordered a cosmo, and being from the NY area, I didn't expect it to be as yummy and well-made as it was. The atmosphere in the bar is great and I would highly recommend going there before you eat. Upstairs, the place has a feeling of a house museum only it is a bustling restaurant. The atmosphere is cozy and romantic. I started with the special salad, which was excellent. I then had the beef tenderloin and all of it was great. The food was delicious, the wine list was great, the service was friendly and fast. Our waitress told us about the ghosts she has seen there and tried to help us find them in the room. I can't say enough. Go! Enjoy! make reservations!
Circa 1771 mansion serves up superior seafood in a setting that will have your mind on your manners. – In Short
Couples out for a romantic evening on the town dine in propinquity to festive groups of convention-goers--and everyone goes home happy. Heart-of-pine floors and period antiques lend to an atmosphere of Old South gentility, but don't be surprised to spot tourists in shorts and T-shirts. Skip ho-hum pasta selections for one of the menu's stunning seafood dishes including crowd pleasers like pan-seared crab cakes, rich she-crab soup and seared scallops.
