I love going to the Orchids at Palm Court to celebrate a special occasion. Just looking around the beautiful room is an experience. But the service and the food are the highlights. They treat you like royalty and the service is well-timed, coordinated, and a delight to watch. For those who like to watch the food shows on TV and... More

We stayed at the Netherlands Hotel for a wedding and visited the bar a couple of evenings. The 3 piece jazz band was a delightful backdrop to cocktails and conversation. The seating and atmosphere are amazing. It feels like a grand European hotel. Definitely worth a stop.

Our experience at the Orchids at Palm Court was simply the best dining experience ever! The food was magnificent and prepared to perfection! The service was quietly superb. We could not have been more impressed with the entire staff: from attire, personality, sincere desire to make our experience memorable, and attentive without being overbearing!

I have dined here three times each with a marked 'celebratory' visit in mind, and each time with friends who shared similar thoughts and conclusions. My most memorable experience was this last Christmas 2015 following a performance of the Messiah at Music Hall. With three other friends, we each had one glass of wine (separated bill from the food) and... More
