My wife and I had a very enjoyable meal at Orchids. After being seated, our server greeted us by name and provided excellent service throughout our meal. Our table overlooked the courtyard with a super view of the ocean and Diamond Head in the background. In the courtyard was an instrumental group with a hula dancer - great to watch. Our meal selections, from appetizers to desert were all very good. Dinner ran about $180 for the two of us which included before and after dinner drinks. Overall, a magical night!

We had a business dinner here, service was excellent and our meals were terrific. The manager came out and talked to each table about the dinner elections, how the seafood (red snapper) and steak complimented each other, and stopped back to ensure we were satisfied. Top notch restaurant.

The food and service was just as others had written about. And very romantic.The Ahi Crudo was spectacular as was the Onaga. My girl friend had the lobster and was raving about it also. The place is also famous for their Coconut Cake...not particularly my number one choice..but I had it and it was also extremely delicious..I'm glad I had ordered it, usually I won't have. In closing..it is for that special occasion because it is pricey. As a gauge we had one $60 dollar bottle of Pinot Nior...the meal with dessert...with the tip it was $270.

Beautiful setting, friendly staff awful food.
The chef needs to taste his own meals. My seafood ravioli was rubbery not delicate at all. This place deserves a better standard of food served.
