This was an absolute beautiful, romantic restaurant. Service was excellent and the food was tremendous. I had the Red Snapper and wife had the scallops. We both had lobster bisque that was to die for. Highly recommend this to anyone visiting Honolulu like we were.

We visited Orchids on the day we got married. We'd had the most wonderful beach ceremony on the other side of the island and chose Orchids for our evening meal after reading the reviews. We were greeted warmly and led to our table for two just in time to see the sunset. Attention to detail, service and quality of food... More

We ordered the lobster salad, New York steak, Prime rib, and Parmesan and truffled fries. The steaks were done just right .... medium rare as we requested. The fries were amazing side dish ... I would highly recommend them as a noon snack with a cold drink . It is a fine dining restaurant and expect to pay premium price.... More

Had dinner with friends at Orchids. The setting was lovely and service was ok. My meal was very good, however one of our party was disappointed with her meal. The wine was expensive for the quality. Overall ad nice experience but overly expensive.

I've dined at Orchids for years. Business dinners, friends brunch, family special occasions and always walked away with delicious memories. The location is prime. Overlooking Diamond Head and on the water. The food was always tasty, flavorful and although pricey the experience, care, view and food made it our go to place to be feasted, served and satisfied. Therefore the... More

I cannot say enough great things about this restaurant. We booked this restaurant after reading the reviews on here. We booked on line and the restaurant were happy to meet all our requests. On the day we arrived early and were accommodated in the bar next door until the restaurant opened. All the staff were professional and attentive. Once we... More

We've just had another wonderful dining experience at one of our favorite restaurants, Orchids, in the Halekulani Hotel. This is where we always go to celebrate special occasions or when we really want to treat ourselves to a nice dinner. We normally make our reservations for 530pm (when they open) so that we can be seated near the lawn where... More

If you are seeking fine dining in downtown Waikiki with a beautiful oceanfront setting but are seeking something a step up from the flip-flop crowd, then Orchids in the Halekulani Hotel is for you. This is an elegant experience which starts with subdued but excellent service, very fine wines, diverse menu and art as presentation. Interestingly it is hardly more... More

Myth: patrons are not told ahead of time about the dress code. Fact: you are told when you make the reservation that shorts, tank tops, and flip flops aren't allowed. You're told again if you agreed to receive an e-mail on your reservation. This is a high-end restaurant. If you want to wear "dress" shorts and flip flops, there are... More
