The Olde Pink House Restaurant is in the oldest surviving mansion in Savannah, built in 1771, and also happens to be very close to the hotel my mom and I were staying at in Savannah. I ran in one day and made a reservation for the following night. (Reservations are needed.) I think that my mom was worried that it was a little too fancy for her, and it is a very elegant space, but the staff were so pleasant and professional that she was put at ease. We were seated upstairs in a large ballroom, where there was a woman strolling around the room singing. The room was beautiful and we were at a nice table for two.
I would love to go back with my boyfriend, because as much as I enjoyed it with my mom, it’s a perfect atmosphere for a romantic date. It’s a fine dining experience, and is priced accordingly, but I found the prices to be reasonable considering the quality of the meal and the overall experience. My mom ordered pecan crusted chicken, and I had the crab stuffed grouper. (I like grouper, but stuff anything with crab and I will probably order it.) We also tried the well-reviewed “BLT” salad, which didn’t disappoint. I had the Pink Lady cocktail, which was very pretty, but I probably wouldn’t order it again, as it really just tasted like pink lemonade. The service was simply marvelous; attentive and polite without being cloyingly so. I actually loved this place, and it’s one of my favorite memories of Savannah.
