This was our second visit to the Olde Pink House, and I'm sorry to report that it failed to live up to our previous experience or to the outstanding reputation of this iconic dining establishment. Our dinner reservation was for 9 pm, and we were seated at that time. The serving staff was friendly, but we had to ask for the traditional basket of biscuits. The server who brought our salads left to get a pepper grinder, but never returned. I ordered the flounder, which is a house specialty, prepared and presented in a unique manner. The fish was actually rather tasteless. More apricot shallot sauce would have improved the entrée. My dining companion opted for duck. (She often orders duck, so she knows that particular dish.) She found her entrée to be dry, a very unusual condition for duck. I'm sure we will go back to the Olde Pink House on future visits to Savannah, and hope for a better dining experience next time.

Great atmosphere and food to match. Piano bar live entertainment on a Saturday night. Awesome! Decent wine selection and great seafood. I had the scallops and my wife had the salmon... both were excellent. We had the shrimp, crab and sausage appeitiser which was also very good. Make a reservation or be prepared for a long wait.

First, the house is beautiful and service attentive. The maitre 'd checked in with us several times.

Second, I wish they would bright up the lights at dinner service so patrons can better read the menu, see the food and see the restaurant at night. Lights were so dim, made me sleepy and unable to see the food I'm served.

The table bread biscuits were ok, wasn't warm by the time we got it.

We shared the fried green tomatoes appetizer and the kitchen already split the dish into two plates for us. Sad to say for the price, we only had 2 slices of fried green tomatoes. Are they that expensive to make??

My mom had the salmon and I opted for the Vidalia onion and sweet potato ravioli. Both were very good and wonderfully flavored.

For dessert, we ordered the Praline Basket because it sounded interesting only to find out the dish is the restaurant's signature. Why the waitress didn't tell us that up front is beyond me. I would've thought it is something they would say by way of recommendation. It was a beautifully presented dessert and tasted just as nice.

Delicious food and great service. Very lovely building. The maitre’d and waitress was very attentive. It was chilly out and we were seated next to a warm fireplace. Got to read about the history which was nice.
