  • "Wonderful Sunday brunch experience. We were a party of 4 with a four year old. Great variety of delicious food. Beautiful presentation and friendly staff. Definitely would go again and recommend to friends."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "There is no doubt this is a lovely setting - we have been here several times before, this time for breakfast. Personally we found it a little underwhelming and outrageously expensive. You tend to forget that you will be paying hotel prices for everything - not stand alone restaurant prices. We don't feel we got value for money for the food - it was nothing special at all - the redeeming factor was the setting, right by the beach."

  • "The food was exquisite. The service was friendly and on point. Great view of the ocean and view of Diamond Head while we dined. Also awesome live Hawaiian music playing to set a relaxing Hawaiian ambiance while we dined. This is a great place to take out of town guests and for romantic evenings. My husband and I had a wonderful time. We definitely will be back and highly recommend to others. If you want to impress someone, this is the place to take them."

  • "My husband and I celebrated my two girlfriends birthday at lunch yesterday. They had already been to Orchids as I had and what we enjoy the most is the scenery and "escape" from the "outside" world while we are there. We all ordered the featured fix menu for lunch and were very satisfied with the food. The service as always was superb. My girl friends were surprised with a slice of coconut cake for desert, complete with a birthday candle. What a lovely surprise for all of us."

  • "The view was good not great. Food was overpriced and ribeye was mediocre. Lobster was ok, nothing special and scallops were sparse but good. Wanted more than just 4 for 60$. It was our wedding celebration for us and our 18 yo daughter. One drunk apiece and the tab was 300$."

  • "Wow! What an experience we had at Halekulani's Orchid Dining area. Customer Service at its best! We were welcomed by name along with a "Happy Birthday" by the Hostess and Maitre'd. At that very moment, we immediately felt comfortable and welcomed. As requested, We appreciated a or seating request, overlooking the ocean. We were then treated to another first class experience by our Waiter and two Assistants, who made sure our coffee and water were always filled. Our dinners ordered were tasteful and well presented. We also appreciated your presentation of a "Happy Birthday" desert. Everyone involved with our experience was so polite, courteous and professional. We had a great time from beginning to end. Thank You so much and Aloha!"

    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "What a great restaurant. Wonderful food prepared expertly. What a beautiful sunset view of the ocean. I had the "all Orchids dinner". Orchids salad, Onondaga fish, and coconut cake. Wow! We've been coming to Hawaii once a year for the last 25 years and we always make sure that we dine at Orchids at least once per trip. You will not be disappointed. The staff has perfect timing and will attend to your needs."

  • "As usual, Orchids at the Halekulani never disappoints! The view of Waikiki and Diamond Head is breathtaking, and the food and service is outstanding! I would highly recommend this restaurant!"
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "We dined at Orchids for Sunday Brunch and it was really good! The breakfast portion wasn't as sprawling as some other mainland brunches I've been to but the lunch portion included lots of wonderful treats your not going to see elsewhere. Kimchi, green papaya salad, ahi tuna poke, lomi lomi salmon, lots of sushi, etc. Dessert was wow! And the service was amazing! The price was expensive at $57 per person but not prohibitive. And there is no other view you'd rather have surrounding you for a meal."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "I thought the food was good, but not $60 per person good. The service on the other hand was outstanding and the view was great."

  • "Had a wonderful experience as a group of 4 at the Sunday brunch. Loved the selection of food but more importantly, the quality of it! Loco moco eggs benedict and ahi poke were the highlights for me. Service was on point from beginning to end. Would recommend without a doubt."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Excellent wine and dessert menu, top quality food, stellar (but not smothering) service. We are foodies and Orchids lived up to its reputation. Highly recommended."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "We were in Waikiki for the first time and wanted to find somewhere special to celebrate our 15th Wedding Anniversary. The reviews for Orchids were very solid but what we experienced was absolutely stellar. We have dined in beautiful restaurants all around the world and our entire experience at Orchids was best in class. Amazing service from all staff, exquisite food and wine."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Our first visit to Orchids was 13 years ago on our honeymoon. On our return to Hawaii Orchids was on our list of places to go, and we were not dissappointed. We had a wonderful lunch with our two sons. The location is perfect with a nice view of Diamond Head. Service was very attentive and as expected. The food was not rushed, and it was all very tasteful and presented in a very nice way. There were not many guests present, so the only thing i can pick on is that we did not get a table with an even better view, but this was possibly due to a small wedding party which was also there. We will definately return to Orchids if and when we return to Waikiki."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Disappointed! My friend found a 1/2" piece of plastic in her mushroom salad. The waiter said, "Sorry", and took her plate. My friend said, "He just doesn't care". Later he came back and my friends were at the buffet. He said, "We took away the mushroom salad. It was just a wrapper". I said, "We realized it was a wrapper". He said, "We would like to give you a drink". I asked him to come back when my friend was there. He came back and pointedly said to her only, "We'd like to get you a drink for finding the wrapper". I called the hotel dining reservations days before to let them know it was a birthday and asked if they did anything special. She said yes, and asked for the spelling of my friend's name. Needless to say, they did NOTHING!"

  • "My husband and I enjoyed the buffet brunch in a lovely setting. Our waiter, David was attentive without being intrusive. We started with a glass of sparkling wine and then had the difficult decision of deciding what to eat and in what order. The food choice was wide, beautifully presented and delicious. There was someone to cook eggs for you, someone to carve the meat, people to cater for your every whim. We had a quiet table that had a view out to the ocean. A lovely experience while on holiday in Honolulu."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Wonderful view of Diamondhead (if that view is requested); outstanding service, and beautiful presentation of food. A nicely paced, relaxed dining experience."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "More formal than it really needs to be. They push the dress code but then let people in wearing shorts and Aloha shirts. Those people did not seem any more out of place than those of us who dressed up. The food was good as was the service."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "Our dinner with an old friend was magnificent. The restaurant did not arrange for the balmy weather, but it took advantage of it. The Chinese style Onaga is superb. The rib-eye steak was equally good. The wines available by the glass were excellent, and the service wise, available, but not omnipresent. You should, from time to time, forget the hot new stuff and come back to Orchids."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "After a frazzling flight we were glad to enjoy a lovely meal here. The scallops were perfect and the lobster linguine was superb - both highly recommended. Interestingly there were six wedding parties in the restaurant at the same time. Service was attentive, amazing views of the sparkling emerald ocean"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Always love dining at Orchids. Excellent food and drinks, plus attentive service with an ocean view made for a wonderful birthday celebration. A slice of their famous coconut cake (on the house for my birthday), was the perfect ending to the perfect meal. We'll be back."

  • "I had a good time! great view and Good service. I shared a dish, but was better when I distributed it and gave a service. Really I wanna go to here again"
