Had an amazing brunch here. You can't beat the oceanside view with delicious food. I made the egg station cook work overtime with all the different types of omelettes I had him make. Good job, Brian!

My wife and I visited Orchids restaurant for dinner. The site overlooking the ocean at Waikiki Beach is superb. The waiter went to some trouble to point out possible options for my vegetarian partner. She chose a mixed salad with a side of grilled asparagus. The salad was crisp and tasty. The white and green asparagus was good. I had... More

I had reserved this restaurant online, as my birthday fell on Father's Day this year, and I wanted to ensure we could get in. On my reservation I requested an ocean view, and when we arrived we got exactly what I had requested. We had an amazing ocean view and view of Diamond Head. Thank you to the restaurant for... More

This is described as a seafood restaurant, however the menu is definitely Italian. We came for a nice dinner for our last night of the holiday, and we didn't really get the service or standard of food we expected from the venue. The general feedback from those dining was the meals were dry, and service could have been improved. I... More

We usually come for cocktails every few months at the House Without a Key. Tha last time we had dinner at Orchids, the restaurant next door, was for our 50th anniversary three years ago with 11 of us. This time there were 5 family members . The view of the ocean across the lawn with the Hawaiian trio playing is... More

Open table 에서 금요일 dinner 2명 예약하고 갔습니다 운이 좋게 앉기 어렵다는 Beach 자리로 안내받았고 옆에는 House without the key 라는 야외 bar가 있었습니다 하와이의 전통 노래를 직접 연주와 더불어 댄서가 aloha dance를 하고 있어서 너무 분위기가 좋았습니다 저 멀리 diamond head가 보이며 바다도 잔잔하고 노을이 질때 너무 taking breath 했습니다 최고의 장소입니다 음식맛은 개인의 차이인 것 같습니다 (저의 입맛에는... More

Honestly, it is hard to put into words just how lovely an experience our lunch was at this restaurant. First, the location in the Halekulani Hotel is sublime. Attention to detail is evident everywhere you look and the seating, overlooking the Pacific is just beautiful. The menu offers from light to large choices and we struggled over wonderful options. There... More

Orchids is one of our favorite restaurants in Honolulu... We normally have a table where we are able to see the entertainment at the House Without A Key. We take many of our friends there for a fabulous dinner and Aloha experience. You will see what we experience, sit outside with a view of the evening show. They have a... More

The Italian menu does not fit the locale or setting. That being said, the execution of the food that is on the menu is still poorly done. My side salad was soggy with dressing and non descript. It was not crisp. My fish was overdone and not moist as usually is the case there. The food is overpriced. This is... More
