We ate here on the last night of our Hawaii trip. I was nervous about booking a nice (and expensive) restaurant in Waikiki because I've tried several other well reviewed places and always been disappointed. Not this time. The meal was incredible. The menu was quite extensive with lots of unique and creative dishes. I had a tough time choosing... More

We really enjoyed this restaurant. However, when ordering you should check portion sizes. The entire meal was over $200 (no alcohol). And 3 of the 4 of us went away hungry. The menu online lists side dishes you can order, but those were not on the menu that night. My filet of beef was delicious, it was listed as including... More

Orchids is situated right by the beach in a well known Waikiki hotel. It has a very nice atmosphere, and there is a reasonable space for each group of guests. Conversation is easy, unlike in some other establishments in town. Food was better than average. Appetizers were reasonable. The duck carpaccio was about right, and not gamy. The shrimp was... More

We visited there in the morning to have a breakfast pancakes. The volume was not very big. The taste was not bad. And the view and location was great very close to the beach and see thd Diamond head.

Nice ambience near the beach. Food moderately imaginative and presented with much color and flair. Some dishes seemed a bit dated. Wine list good.

In my personal opinion, the food quality is just average, quantity below average, service poor to average and therefore very over priced. Example, the waiter was trying to place the dish in front of my wife by going over her head from behind. I have never never seen this in a high end restaurant.

Pros: The food remains top quality and has a great selection. The service is friendly, attentive and quick. The dress code is reasonable and gives the place a classy feel. The setting is lovely. Cons: Large groups of 10+ are set up next to tables of 4. It makes a normal conversation almost impossible and there is constant foot traffic... More
