Nice view, needs new signature

Very nice restaurant Wine list is very limited for wines by the glass & overpriced. Menu isn't that large. I opted for signature fish, a type of red snapper & wasn't that impressed. I think I would have preferred the sea bass or salmon Service is attentive.

I don't mind paying $100 for a meal if I feel I have received value for money. Tonight I didn't!! The service was pretentious rather than genuine and the food, although decent, was extremely small, the lobster was tasteless and $24 for 2 scallops ... well you decide. To be fair, when I complained they did offer to refund my... More

When we visit Honolulu yearly, we always head to Orchids for a fail safe gorgeous view, service and food. I would have to say it wasn't anywhere near as good as it always is in July this year; nothing major, but a few little things. I booked five weeks in advance and asked for a patio seating to soak up... More

My husband and I came here to celebrate our anniversary a couple of weeks ago. The setting was wonderful. We were seated at 6:30 for a sunset view, which came about 7:15. We were placed on the lower patio level overlooking the ocean as we had requested. We were served our drinks (Lava Flow and Gin & Tonic) quickly, and... More

Loved it. Beautiful food, a little bit more pricey than usual but look at where you are. Well worth a treat if you are not staying at the hotel. Lovely staff. The view is gorgeous.

My husband and I took our 10 adult children and spouses to the Sunday Brunch on June 28, 2015. The venue can't be beat...believe me. The Hotel is lovely but to sit on the outside porch with a view of Diamond Head is priceless. What I really want to share is our impression of the food and service. Three of... More

Since this place is quite pricey, my husband and I went there for lunch on Sunday. My mistake- on Sunday, they offer a buffet for $70 per person! The first time I went here was in 2009 and we got a great lunch deal (I realize it was during the week). So we were trapped there with all this buffet... More

We had dinner with a group of people from my husband's office. We were seated with an excellent view of Diamond Head and were able to listen to and watch the evening entertainment at the bar adjacent to the restaurant - traditional Hawaiian music and dancing. The food and wine were outstanding and the atmosphere was very relaxed. You must... More

Came here twice; once for breakfast and once for dinner. Both were great experiences. The Halekulani hotel is beautiful and stunning. Very quiet and high class atmosphere. For breakfast, my mom ordered the eggs benedict and I ordered the Loco Moco which is an island favorite. My mom loved the hollandaise sauce on the eggs and I thought the ham... More
