I am not sure where to start. From the moment you walk in, you feel like a king or queen. The Halekulani property is gorgeous and the staff treats you like royalty. Orchids equally lives up to the hotel's standard of, 'House Befitting Heaven.' We ordered the salmon dish and a local breaded fish dish. Before we received our entrees,... More

I visited for Sunday brunch and the food and service is amazing. The pork benedict was a highlight, and the cold seafood section was top-notch. The crab legs were divine. There is way too much to be able to try everything in one visit.

If your foodie than you will appreciate the quality of food here but beware it doesn't come without a price. It's expensive and you may just have the most stuck up service you've ever encountered. The sommelier was a total jerk. He made us feel awful for asking questions about wine, which is precisely what his job is to do.... More

I went with a small wedding that totaled 6 people. The view was great: they sat us close to the water. The service was terrible and unprofessional. They stopped taking our drink orders and forgot the groom's drink. They interrupted our meal order and never came back. The bride received the wrong order and the groom, nothing. We were treated...

We were so happy to have reservation at Orchids but when we arrived they said there was a dress code. No shorts are allowed. Dresses for ladies and men need a collared shirt and pants. They do have a locker full of clothes for you to change into. We decided that the restaurant was not for us and left. We... More

We dined at Orchids recently for a family celebration. This is a truly lovely place to dine. Excellence in service, cuisine well prepared in a magnificent seaside setting. Notwithstanding it us a little exxy it is well worth the splash.

Did the standard afternoon tea, it was sooooo good. Excellent tea selection, very tasty scones and sandwiches. Great view of diamondhead and the ocean, Great staff. Pricey but I suppose not for Waikiki.

I have traveled the world and eaten is some pretty nice restaurants with great food. I absolutely love this restaurant! Staff are always helpful and courteous, you can book this with the Open Table app, their food is better than Roy's or Ruth's Chris across the street. I love those restaurants too, but there's one more reason I LOVE ORCHIDS:... More
