Brown's Beach House - The Fairmont Orchid - Kohala Coast
Kids menu is the same forKids menu is the same for all restraints inside hotel.6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely Kohala RestaurantWe ate at Brown's twice while staying at the Fairmont Orchid. The first time was for my birthday, and the second time was a few nights later. We had excellent service and meals both times, and the view can't be beat. Lovely experience.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was excellent.Everything was excellent. The food quality was superb, and significantly better than when we were here a few years ago. They are doing something right. Our waietr, Bruce, was also excellent. All in all, a great meal.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible Dining ExperienceIf you are looking for a restaurant that not only has outstanding food but beautiful ocean views then this is the place for you. The service was exceptional. Our table looked out to the ocean. The Alae salt roasted filet mignon was so delicious. I can't remember the name of the drink I had but it had vodka and a ginger puree that was the best thing I've ever tasted. The prices are high but it is well worth it. I would eat here again and recommend to all.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Food and ViewWe arrived at the restaurant at 6 pm and were seated at one of the tables for two closest to the water with a beautiful sunset about a half hour later. If coming to this restaurant, try to arrive in time for the sunset. It is a beautiful setting! But there is much more to this restaurant than the setting. The food is truly excellent! We started with a wonderful poke appetizer. For the main dish, I ordered a red curry fish dish and my husband had the pork chops. Both were great. On top of the excellent food and view, we also had a friendly and efficient waiter and were treated to a very tasteful and low key live guitar player and singer.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMfor special occasions only $$$$$$$Beautiful restaurant, food as art, excellent service, can't beat the scenery, ambiance and the sunset over the ocean. But OH MY GOODNESS is this place expensive!!!! Expect to pay close to $200 for dinner for 2, and that's not including a bottle of wine, just a couple of drinks. If you live on the Big Island, be sure to ask about the Kama'aina discount of 10% - which is close to $20 on that kind of tab.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingThis restaurant is amazing. The service is beyond great and the food is very tasty. My husband and I loved it.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food with a fantastic viewWe celebrated our 40th anniversary with great style. It was a beautiful outdoor setting with a stunning sunset. Food and service first class.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMbest meal on the big islandwe've been to the Big Island several times and this was the best meal i;'ve ever had there. The ambiance cannot be beat, the food was perfect and the service excellent. The setting is absolutely magnificent. Make sure you get there to see the sunsset over the beach5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was wonderful.Online research led us to Brown's for our special 25th anniversary meal during our trip to the Big Island. Every expectation was fulfilled. There is no better setting for outdoor dining, the server was friendly and efficient (and takes excellent photos) and the food was top notch gourmet. This would be my primary dining recommendation for anyone going to the Big Island. If you tend to get chilly, bring a jacket/sweater as it can get a bit breezy.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic !Great food !
Awesome Service, Thank You Brad !
Will be back again for a magnificent time.
Wendy & Richard de Vries5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best dining experiencesOne of the best dining experiences we have had. Everything about the evening was perfect. Wish we lived closer so we could go there often.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI really wanted to love thisI really wanted to love this restaurant this year, after not having been there for a few years. It was good, but not great. It wants to be the same ambiance as Canoe House, but not as lovely ambiance. More run-of-the-mill hotel restaurant.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBest dinning experience weBest dinning experience we had on the big island. Appetizer and salads were a good start. We paired a great French red with our fillet and pork chop entrees. Both entrees were superb, and we nearly licked our plates clean. The dessert list was equally strong, and both deserts we tried were excellent. Service was not perfect, but no complaints from us. The Fairmont and Brown's beach house are a killer combo.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible food, service,Incredible food, service, and ambience. Would recommend to anyone on the kona coast for a special occasion.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best meals I everOne of the best meals I ever had... Lamb Chops were amazing and my wife loved the lobster tail and risotto.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMHawaiian dream dinnerWe went for our anniversary and it was fabulous! We started with champagne, and we chose the fixed price menu option. My wife started with the Kona coffee short ribs, while I had Apple Banana & squash with toasted Mac nuts soup. I really liked the soup, but we both agreed that the short ribs were great. We both had the Crab crusted Kampachi fish for our main course. The fish was cooked perfectly and it was excellent. The desert was a "snicker bar" - styled concoction, with peanuts, chocolate and was very tasty. Our table was at the edge of the outdoor seating area, overlooking the beach, which was lit with spot-lights so we could watch and hear the surf. Fantastic!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMW-A-Y over priced, but defientlyW-A-Y over priced, but defiently a 5+ star restaurant. Very nicly placed facing the beach and Pacific ocean. Four of us, 2 bottles of $45 wine, no starters, one cocktail each; $520 ($80 tip). The $57 entree's should have been more like $45 entree's. Just saying not "real world" pricing.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect!Everyone at Brown's worked to make our anniversary dinner extra special. The hostess who greeted us made us feel like we were VIPs. Our server was helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. He picked out some perfect wines to go with our dinner. I had the tasting menu and my husband had the 3 course dinner. Everything was fresh, delicious and perfectly seasoned. My pork was the juiciest, most flavorful pork dish I have ever had. The lobster was delicate and not salty like most places. The view was gorgeous and the singer made the ambiance perfect! One small note, I think there was a party or luau going on across the beach. You might want to avoid that night if you like quiet. It didn't detract from our evening though! Loved everything3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent as always, fromExcellent as always, from food to service to exquisite sunset view. Look forward to being back next year!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a delightful evening!What a delightful evening! Even though it drizzled a bit from time to time during our outstanding dinner, it didn't matter. The food was excellent...well prepared and presented; the view was to die for as we were seated at one of maybe 4 PERFECT tables just on the edge of the grass overlooking the bay. We would have enjoyed the evening if we were seated further back I suppose, but the surrounding conversations were non-existent at our table as we enjoyed dinner and the spectacular view.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExtremely expensive. SmallExtremely expensive. Small portions. Beautiful setting! Extremely attentive service.1/28/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic diningRomantic outdoor dining with truly special service. Food was good but not outstanding; do try the Waimea baby romaine salad because that is excellent However, the experience is so special that this is a spot I would visit again.12/1/2012 12:00:00 AM
