Everything about our dinner at Orchids was perfect. The setting oceanside is among be best in Honolulu. The cuisine matches the beautiful surroundings, and the service, well it is the Halekulani, so it's a level above. Sunday brunch is a grand experience separate from the daily breakfast, lunch and dinner they serve Monday-Saturday. Excellent choice for a special occasion.

This is a beautiful property very serene. We had Sunday brunch there. They have everything from sashimi to French toast, a full table of desserts and a high quality selection. By far one of the better brunches I have been to.

Every time we visit Hawaii, we have a Sunday Brunch here because the variety of appetizers to desserts is quite wide, and the atmosphere is elegant even though Sunday Brunch is rather crowded. You can't go wrong with any dish, and the service is excellent. If you request, you could get a table with a view of Pacific Ocean and... More

Chef what the hell were you doing? Reservations were made by our hotel for 8 pm on a Tuesday night for 4 people. Three of my party were sat; I was told my dress shorts were not allowed. (My bad for not reading the dress code; the Halekulani is a super strict place.) I jammed back to the hotel and... More

Elegant afternoon tea with Diamond Head and the Pacific Ocean as background. Simply fabulous! My wife and I try to have afternoon tea whenever we travel. We have had some really nice teas, but the tea at the Halekulani is definitely one of the best! Not only is the setting beyond belief, the service is excellent and the food was... More

Apparently one wants to have Sunday brunch at Orchids when in Honolulu, but they were booked when we were there, so we made do with dinner. This restaurant really impressed my in-laws, who termed it "the very definition of swank." And indeed it is in a resort hotel and feels very upscale, but not snooty. We were there after sunset,...

Of course the Halekulani Hotel is gorgeous and well designed for Christmas. We enjoyed the sights, including the sunset. Orchids, however, is quite pretentious and overrated. We have three children and were prepared to have a semi-elegant meal. We packed their slacks and dress shoes per the dress code, despite needing only very casual clothes while vacationing in Oahu.
