Orchids restaurant has a beautiful setting and ambience, with all tables having views of the beach. The breakfast selection is befitting of a 5 star restaurant. Service is excellent.

With beach front dining and glorious sunsets, Orchids is the place to dine. Everything from reservations, to scenic seating, to impeccable service, to the cuisine, the Orchids experience is amazing. Orchids is my favorite dining spot in Hawaii. I called ahead to ask about gluten-free options and was told the staff would inform me of the options on the menu.... More

Our dinner experience was excellent. We reserved a table for two on the lanai at 5:45. The live music and the beautiful Hanokalani landscaped grounds made for a very relaxing setting. We enjoyed watching the sunset with a delicious Mai Tai in hand. This was our fifth visit to Waikiki and Orchids. Dinner at Orchids was one of our best... More

We ate at orchids on our last night. It's was a nice dinner. Food was amazing, service was superb, and the view was perfect. I had the shrimp ravioli and husband had lobster. It can be pricey with drinks but it's worth it.

Orchid's certainly enjoys a prime beachfront location on Waikiki Beach & with Diamond Head in full view it would be hard to get a more scenic place to dine. The staff are extremely professional & knowledgeable whilst being friendly & cheerful. The wine list is varied, featuring both domestic & international choices, prices from $50ish to $$$$. We thought the... More

We visited on 11/18/14. Absolutely fantastic meal. The items we enjoyed were: Tuna and Foie Gras Croquette-Good. Not heavy on the foie gras. In fact, just slightly discernible. This was the weakest part of the meal. Neither recommended or not recommended. Manoa Salad-Solid salad choice. Neither recommended or not recommended. Pan-Fried Sea Bass-Fantastic. Excellent sauce flavors that did not overpower... More

I literally planned our stay at the Halekulani so that we would be able to partake of their legendary Sunday Buffet Brunch. It was excellent. I had some of the best salmon I've ever had, and I consider myself an expert in this area! Everything is beautifully presented, nothing is ever left empty like at some buffets where the "favorites"... More

Go hungry. Start small or you will miss some of the best food ever. So many choices. The mahi mahi and coconut cake are incredible. The setting next to the ocean is lovely. The service fantastic. Lots of adjectives used, but this place deserves them.

We visited Orchids for a Sunday brunch. Perhaps the best meal we had on the island, during our one-week stay. A wide selection of foods: ranging from BBQ, to American comfort foods, to Asian delicacies, all of which were delicious. I am the kind of person who likes to try a lot of different things, so this really impressed me.... More

Without a doubt, this is the very best restaurant I've had the pleasure to dine at in Waikiki. I've had their breakfast and now a dinner on the lanai. Time it right and a full-moon will shimmer on the waves just for you (nights only please!). If you're early for your reservation, they have an ample relaxing waiting room and... More
