We made reservations for our 43rd Wedding Anniversary 4 months ago and were not disappointed. Had a corner table for 2 with a view of the beach and Diamond Head. We both ordered the Ravoli and it was fantastic. Ask the waiter for a wine recommendation and he provided an excellent Chardony. Hostess and waiter both took our pictures without... More

A group of four of us dined for a celebration dinner - to start of with every dish ranged from very good to amazing. Our server was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. This would have been a five star review if not for two huge service errors that put a damper on the night. Firstly, after an amazing meal we went... More

On our first visit everything was outstanding! I came back with my sister a couple of weeks ago because the first visit was so great and I wanted to treat her to a special evening. First, I requested a table to see the hula and that was happily met. Second, the service was as amazing as the first visit...really outstanding!... More

We came here for the Other Half's birthday dinner. I had booked via open table and mentioned the special occasion and the staff were attentive and delightful. We had a table right on the verge overlooking the water and it helped add to the charming night. The other half's steak was cooked exactly as he likes it (and he's picky!)... More

Extremely attentive and kind staff. Really good food and a killer view. I was alone and the hostess offered me a newspaper to read while I waited for my food. Just a really nice spread if you're looking for a nicer place for breakfast, definitely recommend it.

Our table at Orchids was booked for 2pm - for a late Sunday Brunch. We had been lured to this location by an enticing entry in the Lonely Planet guide [entitled The Sunday Spluge!], and I booked it via email from the UK 6 weeks beforehand. Great communication and charming courtesy throughout. What a place: all pristine white table cloths,... More

We had a wonderful experience at the Orchids Restaurant. The service was top notch and we felt very special. We had the beef tenderloin, the rib eye steak and the scallops appetizer. They were delicious! Everything was fabulous.

When ever we are lucky enough to be in Waikiki, we start with a special treat breakfast out at Orchids. For some reason, even though undeniably a beautiful spot to start the day, this time we were disappointed with the food, it was pretty average, which might not have been an issue if it weren't for the high prices. The... More

I visit this restaurant every time in Waikiki… for years now… it has the best view, best service, and is a lovely way to start the day. I recommend their healthy menu - green smoothie and egg white omelette were great, but so are the classic popovers and macadamia nut pancakes. You can't go wrong here.

Save up for at least one dinner at Orchids if visiting Waikiki. Impeccable old Hawaii atmosphere and splendid service, with offerings to match. Try the unique hot/cold asparagus salad. And ask for Craig--a very polished professional waiter.
