We've enjoyed afternoon tea at other locations and decided to experience it at the Halekulani. Our party of four was seated on the veranda with an excellent view of Diamond Head. The service was prompt and attentive. We all selected different teas from their selection of about a dozen. The finger sandwiches were tasty. You're served 4 different types of... More

One of our favorite restaurants on Oahu, with great food, great service and great ambiance! It is pricey, but worth the visit. Whether you are with family, or on a romantic date, a dinner at Orchids during sunset hour is the place to be! If you are driving, use the Halekulani's valet parking service as there are no public lots... More

If you want to see how the rich do breakfast this is the place for you. Waiters in vests, refill your coffee after every third sip from your fine china cup. Real silver tongs are near your cubed sugar bowl for your French press coffee. The breakfast was good. However, the traditional (since 1912) piping hot popovers with fresh marmalade... More

My family and I wanted to have one dining experience at a high end restaurant- we chose Orchids. The view is amazing - right on the water, Diamond Head in the background- you couldn't ask for a better view. The only disappointment was the menu. It lacked diversity, was limiting and very disappointing. The food we ordered was good, but... More

We have eaten here several times. Make your resevation 2 weeks in advance. The fish is always fresh. Potions are generous. Very expensive but worth it

A beautiful restaurant right on the waterfront. Well priced and wonderful service. You can listen to the beautiful Hawaiian music and watch the dancing next door as you eat your dinner. Listen to the waves as you enjoy your meal. Looks like it would be a very expensive restaurant but it was very moderately priced.

LOVED this place - so expensive but we wanted one nice romantic dinner out - and it didn't disappoint at all. Scenery is beautiful right on the water and you can hear the Hawaiian music from next door. Cocktails were fantastic (I got the Americano) and food and dessert were amazing. I had the snapper (not on the menu), the... More

Visiting the island with my husband for a dual birthday celebration. Friends took us to this beautiful restaurant on the ocean with fabulous food and a band with several dancers. Our friends knew the band members, and they sang happy birthday to us. Restaurant's lovely light coconut cake with candle capped the evening. A great way to enter our 70s!!

Well, I am italian and an avid foodie. Unfortunately I must tell you that my dinner was not a unique culinary experience. The service was attentive and pleasant as always in the US but the food was not to die for. In addition I would like to point out the absurd dress code policy for men considering that you are...
