Almost perfect ....

Ive eaten in some amazing places everywhere, the food here is good, location is great, view and service. Honestly I think they should give a bigger portion for the price, or else I would have given all 5 stars

Make no mistake about it, this is a fine dining experience. This a restaurant to dress up for, to relish, to take your time and to enjoy the spectacular view. The service was impeccable. We, the four of us, were celebrating a milestone birthday. Different people have different food preferences so we won't detail the menu. Sufficient to say that... More

We ate here on the last night of our 2 week vacation celebrating our 10 year anniversary. It was the first time we had ever eaten anywhere at the Halekulani and were really looking forward to it. We had a cozy table in the corner of the lanai. I have to say it was the perfect evening. We told Gary,... More

First, understand our expectations were very high, due to being in the Halekulani. We were not disappointed. The food, service, atmosphere were all wonderful. One of our favorite dining experiences ever in Hawaii, and we have been here too many times to count. Price was also much lower than I would expect. Considering it is Hawaii, and everything overpriced, it... More

We had the pleasure to eat at Orchids twice on this trip to Hawaii and both times were very good. The service at this restaurant is top notch. The knowledge of the menu by all the staff is excellent and they are very attentive. The food is great from appetizers to desserts. I would recommend the Onaga served Orchids style... More

The view here is stellar – incredible seating almost on the ocean front itself! We were lucky to be seated at a table right next to the ocean and the sunset is worth getting there early. The restaurant itself was also very beautiful and modern as is the hotel it’s in. The food was really good, but not blow-your-mind spectacular,... More

Orchids is located in the Halekulani, the grand dame of hotels in Waikiki, and Orchids matches the sophistication and elegance of the hotel. The Sunday brunch buffet is amazing, and the choices are so many, that you have to eschew great food, for more superior food because you can only eat so much. When we were there, they had at...

We had breakfast and dinner at Orchids while staying at Halekulani. I really loved having breakfast there and enjoyed the fabulous view and impeccable service. The breakfast options are good and are a nice alternative to the buffet at House Without a Key. We did not have the Sunday brunch offered at Orchids, but it did look fabulous for a... More
