Great food in a superb hotel

We were staying at the Halekulani so decided to try Orchids -- one of their two fine dining restaurants.Professional and prompt service. Veal chop was first class as was my wife's petit filet.

Orchids is one of our favorite restaurants this along with Michel's is the best restaurant in Oahu. The quality of food, menu, the view, the ambiance, and the service sets these restaurants apart from others. We come here every winter, at least twice, once for the dinner and love the Sunday Brunch!

Orchids is a lovely restaurant. The atmosphere is amazing with the open air dining area. The location is beautiful and inviting and the hotel it is located in is lovely to visit as well. We had dinner with friends and had a great meal. The service was a bit slow at first but it got better as the meal went... More

On our annual visit to Honolulu, my wife and I make a point of going to the Halekulani on a weekday for a sit-down breakfast at its Orchids restaurant. Impeccable service, superb menu, gracious surroundings. Reserve an ocean-side table.

We had brunch at 1:30pm and it did not disappoint. There was definitely something for everyone and exceptional quality food for a buffet. The ambience was wonderful and the view of the beach from our table was gorgeous. The coffee served was also very good.

I really feel bad writing this subpar review as we love the hotel property and its impeccable service and rooms. But after the build up in expectations, from the reviews on TA, the island formal dress code, and the high prices, we were really underwhelmed. The service, while not terrible, was no where near the expectations of a place of... More

The restaurant is located steps from the ocean and also has a nice lawn where you can see a great view of Diamond Head. The food is so tasty as well. The seafood dishes are the stars here. And the dessert to have is their famous coconut cake.

Ocean side seating at this exquisite restaurant. Service is amazing and the food delicious! I love the curry as Chef Bikram knows his Indian food.
