I mistakenly reviewed the hotel rather than the restaurant — here's that and more: I've never stayed at the Halekulani, and I've heard nothing but good things about the lodging, but locals like myself revere the very classy, pricey but yummy brunch buffet on the lovely lanai. I used to come here all the time with my family on special occasions,... More

We finally were able to try the highly regarded Sunday brunch and it did not disappoint. Beautiful, fresh sushi. Standard breakfast items and meats and vegetables. An sundae bar (for the kids ... yeah, right). And the signature dish ... coconut cake. All this on Waikiki. Hard to beat.

The service here is excellent as is the food! An elegant meal enjoyed by all 5 of us dining guests. Never felt rushed and never had to look for our waiter. Highly recommended!

The service at this restaurant was very good...wait staff is very attentive. The shrimp ravioli were stuffed full of shrimp and had a delicious sauce. The salmon was prepared well and the wasabi mashed potatoes were very good. We were there for an anniversary and they brought us a complimentary piece of coconut cake. The atmosphere was nice. The restaurant... More

A long tradition for my husband and I is to always dine at Orchids our last night in Hawaii. We've been regular patrons for several years. It pains me to have to update my review to the negative, but my dinning experience last week was so poor it warrants further review. I don't have an issue with paying $50 for... More

I had made a reservation but found out the restaurant does not allow shorts. We were planning to wear nice, tailored shorts with nice, dressy shirts. In any era when shorts on men are completely in fashion and often paired with blazers, this kind of policy in a place like Honolulu is not only absurdly snooty, but out-of-date and out-of-fashion....

My family of five, with three teenagers, declared this our favorite meal on Oahu. The elaborate brunch have everyone the opportunity to try something new. More lunch foods than breakfast and the glorious desserts and ice cream bar were the perfect ending. The setting is gorgeous, as well!

Sunday brunch was worth it. Good selection . all of us enjoyed it. We had not booked but they were able to squeeze us in at 2pm (which isn't really brunch but we were able to get the experience) Would advise booking prior to arrival at hotel if only there for one Sunday.
