Outstanding sunset watching and really great food. This place has a really good looking interior - lots of dark wood and low lights. Tuna appetizers were great! Steak wasn't our favorite but the mahi mahi was fantastic. Service was friendly and professional. Nothing bad to say at all - will happily return.

Had a 5:00 reservation which is time restaurant opens even though the sign out front says it opens at 4:00. Went in at 5:00 exactly,and 2 staff members looked up from folding napkins behind the bar to look at me and my daughter and then just turned back around . They did not even acknowledge my presence. I waited there... More

We visited Blue Orchid in July 2014, which is the off-season as far as tourists go. The restaurant was pretty empty, which was good because we got one of the best tables. We had the lobster dip appetizer, which I STRONGLY RECOMMEND. It was to die for. My husband had the prime rib (it was Saturday - Prime Rib Night!)... More

We went there to celebrate a special birthday. I told the person who took the reservation and also reminded the waitress when we arrived. Of the seven meals, two had to be returned (overcooked tuna). When they were re-served, one tuna was raw and the other had a portion much smaller than the original. We resorted to sharing so everyone... More

We got to stop on a tour to see the botanical gardens and nature trail that is phenomenal. Free rum punch to quench your thirst and views that are priceless.

After hearing tons of positive feedback from others about Blue Orchid, I had to try it out. I took my boyfriend there to celebrate his birthday and we had a great time. The drinks are yummy and the food is soooo good. The service was comforting, our server had great recommendations and was so personable. We'll be back and I'll... More

The Blue Orchid was recommended by friends. I made reservations both times I have been there. We gave ourselves extra time to roam the property and absorb the view. Food and service both were excellent. I would eat here again.

Got there too late to enjoy the view. Lobster dip - delicious! Sea bass was my favorite - amazing flavor! Awesome signature salad!

I ordered their lobster cioppino and was blown away - it was a mild spicy large bowel packed with seafood with half a lobster on top. It was fabuous! Not your usual Italian cioppino, but so much more delicious due to the seasonings. Truly a great restaurant!
