“Classic”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

When you enter the historic house you know you are in for a special event. We were seated promptly with a must reservation. The atmosphere is steeped in history with fireplaces, original moldings and windows. Once we started service was impeccable from beginning to end. Rolls were tasty and the BLT appetizer was creative. We all ordered fish entrees and the scallops were mouth watering although prices were on the high side, the quality was well worth the price.

“Great Experience Before but Fell Short This Visit”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

On our last trip to Savannah, we had dinner at the Old Pink House and our meal was sensational. This time, it was a big disappointment. We did not make reservations, but we're able to find a spot at the bar (great timing because the Lousiville/ Wichita game was on). We ordered the crab soup and apple salad as our starters. They were delicus and delivered promptly. Our entrees took forever to arrive! After 25 minutes waiting, the bar manager apologized and acknowledged there was no excuse for the slow service but made no attempt to "make things right." I had the seafood pasta with Alfredo sauce which was very average. My husband had the special, venison, which he said was good, but not spectacular. I love the atmosphere of this restaurant, but was frustrated with the poor service (Note: the bartenders waiting on us were attentive and pleasant. I worked in food service and realize they don't control the speed of the kitchen). We may go back and give it another shot, but not right away.

“Sometimes you just have to cut your losses and leave”
Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

We never quite made it to the eating part of the meal. We never made it to the glass of wine or cocktail part either. In fact we only made it to the glass of water portion of the meal when we decided we needed to go
It's a great looking menu, and the Olde Pink House has a great reputation for terrific food but I don't know if that's true Because we decided to leave before the meal got started.
A 20 minute wait for our reservation followed by 20 minutes of waiting for the waitress to acknowledge that we were seated, and we came to the conclusion that either they were either just too busy or just having a bad night. (You know it's time to leave when the waitress walks in, takes an order from someone who was just seated, and walks past you on the way out of a small room without making eye contact)
Just a few suggestions for this establishment:
your hostess should direct people to the bar when there is a wait or they arrive early and not assume that they know the restaurant have two bars because standing on your front porch isn't really much fun.
When the maitre de stops by two times and says that your waitress will be right with you, he should make sure she shows up.

All in all a big disappointment. The Olde Pink House looked too busy, they acted too busy and there are just too many other outstanding restaurants in Savannah too put up with this type of poor service.

“Old South Atmosphere”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Very friendly hosts and hostess and wait staff. If you're in a roimantic mood ask to be seated in the basement bar where you're surrounded by dark wood, small intimate tables and you dine by candlelight. The food is good and varied and the waiters and waitresses will be more than happy to make recommendations. The building is an old family home from before the Civil War. A little taste of Southern food and traditions that you'll enjoy.
