Here we are on our honeymoon and searching for one of the most romantic restaurants with a view of Waikiki Beach while we were in town off our cruise ship for one night only... and every review says this place is FABULOUS. The view was... the service, and most of the meal. (Especially the coconut cake.) But we start our... More

Managed to get a late booking here on Sunday. It's about 60 dollars (not including drinks) so not cheap but a great experience. As many have said here there is more than you could ever eat so do a round and plan carefully before you start. I avoided the array of breakfast items and went for great salads, excellent sashimi...

Excellent meal and service. Booked through Open Table and requested an outdoor seat and we ended up with the best table in the place! We went just before sunset and the setting was romantic. Waiter was a little offish but his service was still excellent. Would definitely go back.

It's pricey. (Think $60+ per) Huge spread. (Salads, sushi, fruit, hot food, desserts. They have it all.) Good quality stuff. Top notch service. Awesome view. If you have the money, this is the best Sunday brunch on the island. If you don't, there are numerous other places in the $20-30 range that serve up great breakfasts too, but this is... More

We made a reservation at this restaurant on the advice of a local gal who said it was amazing. While it was good, it was not amazing. The service was very good, our server very friendly, the setting very nice right on the ocean front but the food for the cost wasn't the best we have ever had. My olive... More

Relaxed yet an elegant setting with peaceful ambience, warm attentive service and food that was a feast for the eyes and taste buds! It is relatively empty for a weekday lunch so it's prefect for a leisurely chat over a mid day meal. The Orchids salad with greens and fruit in a pomegranate vinaigrette was tasty and refreshing. Shrimp ravioli... More

The lobster de shelled and served with curry sauce is a delight. The shrimp and avocado starter mixes citrus with avocado and a blended guacamole - all spaced separately for you to combine as you desire. Champagne list is extensive - with the sommelier's recommendation heeded to a fine dry Brut, to start and finish the evening. Lychee and Pineapple... More

Sunday brunch in Orchids is a highlight of my visits to Oahu.Each time I visit I am delighted by the food service and the location. The wide choice of dishes, so well presented, is excellent and is very tasty. Service is discrete and prompt, and the view is oceanic!! I can heartily recommend this restaurant for Sunday Brunch.

The ambiance, the food, the service (trifecta) were absolutely amazing. I love the attention to detail, and my Alaskan King crab benedict was to die for. We sat at the outside patio overlooking the ocean. I have no complaints. Remember to dress well or you'll feel left out. I went with workout attire (which was on the "no" list). However... More

We celebrated our wedding anniversary with a wonderful dinner at Orchids. The staff knew it was our anniversary and truly made our dinner something very special with all of the attention we received. The ocean front setting was spectacular and so was the food. At the end of our dinner, we were brought a piece of their signature cocoanut cake... More
