  • "Very beautiful place to eat amazing view of the ocean. Not overwhelmed with the tourist crowd. Absolutely amazing food and excellent wine and drink menu. The staff were beyond amazing, they were very charming and knowledgeable. This is an excellent place for a couples dinner or a small group of old friends to sit down and have a nice meal and enjoy each others company. Highly reccommend"

  • "The brunch was excellent! We especially loved the vegetables and salads/ fruits / raw fish / desserts and the omelette station. The entrees section food was ok... Not the best... Expected better. Other than that we would definitely return for brunch... Service was excellent.... Our waiter's watched and covered our food when we went to get more food... The birds (sparrows) are fast. They will fly over to your table in a split second and eat your food in front of you if you're not watching. They will take a dump too on your table too - yuck! It happened twice at our table... The waiter will bring a cloth to cover it up though :)"

  • "What a wonderful dining experience. Orchids is the place for a special occasion with a scenic view of Diamond Head and the ocean. Set right on the ocean front, elegant dining at its best. We would recommend it for any special occasion."

  • "Orchids Restaurant had the same old-Hawaii ambience I remembered from 20 years ago: the spectacular view of Diamond Head; the shimmery sunshine glistening on the aqua blue waters; the light fragrant breezes among the gorgeous orchids. My luncheon partner and I started with the house champagne. We ordered the lobster tail on linguine and the scallops. For dessert we had the tiramisu and crème brulee. Our serving hosts were gracious, helpful with our order, and attentive throughout our meal. Overall, this was a splendid choice for our celebration. We would recommend Orchids restaurant for a leisurely, informal first class, lunch experience."

  • "We were looking for a special place for our anniversary, identified this restaurant on line, read the reviews, and booked a table. It did not disappoint. From location (outside with an unobstructed view of the ocean) to menu to service to food to special (free) dessert decorated with a "Happy Anniversary" it was perfect. Very highly recommended!"

  • "Incredible setting! Sounds of the ocean, a beautiful view, impeccable service, and delectable fare. What more could you ask for? Orchids has it all. Doesn't trade just on it's location, even if it weren't on the beach, you would return again and again for the food and the service. The most romantic restaurant on Waikiki Beach. If you're in Honolulu, this is a mandatory stop. You won't be disappointed."

  • "We've never been disappointed by a meal at Orchids, whether it's lunch, dinner, or their popular Sunday brunch. Orchids is tucked away by the beachside, away from crowded streets of Waikiki. The views are amazing, as you can see Diamond Head from any outdoor table. Service was great. Very attentive and pleasant staff. Everything we ordered was delicious, especially the beef cheeks - very tender. Ahi crudo was visually appealing. Lobster bisque was very warming. Kahuku shrimp ravioli were stuffed with a lot of shrimp and the sauce was creamy. The lobster roll was topped with wasabi tobiko made in-house. Impressive. We always save room for dessert, making sure we have a slice of Halekulani's signature coconut cake - so fluffy and light."

  • "My husband and I have ate in some of the best restaurants, this one is by far the best, everything perfect. My husband had specifically wanted to go out for his birthday for steak, they did not disappoint. Congragulations Oh and their famous coconut cake, is exactly what critics have said, simply supurb, best to share after a big meal. We will be back!"

  • "I have been here a few times before and am never disappointed. The food is fresh,delicious and well presented. The sashimi is divine..there is an omelette station,mouth watering salads and a hot section from Roast Pork to turkey. You will be tempted by a big selection of desserts. Service is superb.. and with wonderful views of Diamond Head..you won't be disappointed...will most definitely be back next time I visit Honolulu."

  • "This was our first time at this restaurant and the online reviews were spot on. The view was fantastic, food wonderful, service very attentive and sunset over the beach! The bar area is across a small lawn and had a Hawaiian trio and dancers for a show. It couldn't have been a better evening."

  • "We were very much looking forward to experiencing the brunch at Orchids during our vacation in Honolulu. Unfortunately, our friends seemed to enjoy it a lot more than we did. The atmosphere is stunning and the buffet is presented in a nice way, but the service was definitely lacking. For $60 per person, we should not have to seek out the waiter each time we needed a glass filled and that is just what we had to do while dining at Orchids. Also, the buffet is nice but does not offer as much one would think they would and the fact there was only person at the omelette station was offputting since there was always a line. We enjoyed the ambiance but would not recommend it."

  • "After eating at Spago's in Maui for the previous 5 nights, My fiancée ordered a shrimp cocktail app and the shrimp had no taste what so ever and she ordered the ahi crudo which the waiter said was the #1 app they had. Again, the ahi had no taste , just a total disappointment. I ordered the lobster bisque and it was horrible, not a taste of seafood or lobster in the bisque and I was really looking forward to my Sea Bass entrée, and the fish was so overcooked and again no flavor on the fish what so ever. On our flight home to Orange County, we had lobster bisque in first class that was so much better than the restaurant. We did order food from the pool which is run out of a different restaurant and the food and the cocktails were great.."

  • "Fabulous setting & ambiance, impeccable food & service make Orchid's our go-to venue in Oahu for a perfect night out. Have been going here for dinners and farewell lunches for the past 12 years, and it never fails to deliver. Highly recommend the beach front or Diamondhead tables for glorious views."

  • "Orchids is my favorite Waikikik restaurant. It cannot be beat for the food, service or view. If you come to Honolulu, make your dinner reservation before you come, because it is very hard to find a table between six and eight for the sunset view. If you can't make it in for dinner, go for lunch."

  • "Wide array of seafood and red meat options. Complimentary large bread basket with two different kinds of salted butter and olive oil with pomegranate. New Zealand salmon was great, onaga was fishier than we thought it would be for a "mild" fish. Both plates come with a starch--unstated on the menu. The guy who came around with the water, cleared plates, and provided extra bread and butter was fantastic. Unfortunately our actual "waiter" was MIA half the time. He gave us our menus and then left for 10 minutes without explaining anything. Great place to view the sunset, but would encourage dining here only if you're ready for a long and relaxing night. Do yourself a favor and get the coconut cake. Dress code is STRICTLY enforced."

  • "So after reading many reviews on some of the best brunch places to go on Oahu, Orchids seemed to be the place to go. Those reviewers were absolutely right! My dining experience for a beautiful & delicious Sunday Brunch at Orchids was nothing short of amazing. Our wonderful and kind server Michael was so pleasant & knowledgeable about the cuisines being served but also about the areas all around the island. The food was to die for, roasted whole pig (lechon for those who are Filipino), Prime Rib, Whole Roasted Turkey, Omelet station, Sushi & Sashimi of all kinds, many different salads including a very delicious chopped duck salad, a gelato station etc... Orchids Sunday Brunch Buffet is WAY better than any Vegas buffet I have EVER been to."

  • "We spend 7 weeks in Hawaii, and had some very good meals. Orchids at the Halekulani Hotel in Honolulu was the top of our list. Their Sunday Brunch and Dinner is wonderful. The food selection and preparation is excellent, as is the service and the ocean view. It is very pricey but we fell well worth it."

Food and service are outstanding, of course, but the ambience bring it up to the next level for sure. If you are thinking about the place to celebrate someone special's birthday, anniversary etc., this is the place to go."
