When we go to Honolulu, we usually stay at the Halekulani and dine at Orchids. This time, we wanted some peace and quiet and stayed at the new Four Seasons in Ko Olina. But we still came back to Orchids. We had the onaga, which is the best we've ever tasted. The coconut cake is also the best we've ever... More

A return visit about 18 months later, and this restaurant still delivers! We ate here for breakfast and dinner. Both times, service was flawless, as was decor and presentation. The menu appears to be simplified from what I recall. This is traditional fine dining in a beautiful Ocean front setting. As there were four of use, we were able to... More

While in search of the perfect Sunday Brunch experience, we found Orchid's listed one of the best in town. It should be noted this establishment (and the resort it is located within) is quite elegant and refined compared to surrounding hotels where customers to walk in and out of restaurants from the beach. Beach and swimwear/shoes are not acceptable attire... More

The restaurant sits right off the water. We sat on the veranda with views of the waves and a side view of Diamond Head. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. We ordered the asparagus with fried egg for an appetizer. The asparagus was cooked perfectly and shaved and it was a perfect size for a starter. We had a salad... More

We were seated at a very nice table with a beautiful view. The staff was very friendly and efficient, with the exception of keeping our water glasses full - we had to ask several times for refills. The menu items are unimaginative and, in my opinion, over-priced. Side dishes are à la carte and over-priced (8 small stalks of asparagus... More

We ate dinner on our last night. The food was awesome as was the service. Halekulani has three restaurants and this is Resort dress, no jeans, must be collared shirt and no flip flops. Very nice.

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
