Diner Reviews
  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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
  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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"

  • "Had a great time at the brunch, I have been to several Brunches around the world. I found the Seafood at this brunch very poor and lack of."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/11/2014
  • "I didn't go for 4 years, and I can't believe what happened to the sunday brunch,the price was $160 inclusive of 2 glasses of champagne.The food was the worse I ever had in a 5 stars hotel, I just came back from Asia and this looks like a motel brunch, not even sea food, poor choice of salads, and lousy and few deserts.It's the last time I will go and have brunch there."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "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"

  • "This dinner was a fitting end to our 4 weeks holiday in Canada, US and Hawaii we had the signature dishes for main and desert, it was lovely with Hawaiian music and a magic view . Thank you"
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "the overall experience was satisfying in-term of food, service and ambience. the view to the waikiki beach was great. the open air near terrace table was a must. the food was good but, felt it lacked a bit in originality. (although.. i lived in NYC for 10 years) the service was great except for the dress code. trying to keep an upscale atmosphere is understandable but...it's hawaii! the website could state it a bit more obviously perhaps. A great restaurant to spend a romantic dinner in private surroundings."

  • "Have you ever seen grey lobster bisque or sea bass the texture of a hockey puc? The food was truly horrible. The bisque tasted and looked more like dirty water and the sea bass was extremely dry and tasteless. The setting was beautiful and the waiter was delightful. Much better places to eat where you get the view the great service and delicious food!!"

  • "Elegant resort dining without going over the top. Relaxed atmosphere but fine dining level service. Very accommodating. Menu is a bit limited when compared to some other high end fine dining restaurants. They were able to meet our special dietary needs although it was not on the menu. Will repeat for special occasions and/or out of town guests."

  • "Orchids is the best restaurant in Waikiki, stunning in beauty and service that matches. View? ON the oceanfront. Food, Perfect, breakfast here is my new favorite, start your day here as well as end it here. Everywhere at this hotel is the best, you get what you pay for here, and that is why a perfect restaurant should be expensive. They actually could charge more! Go, don't hesitate "

  • "For a last-minute reservation at a Honolulu resort, I was not expecting much, but Orchid's delivered an excellent meal with competent service. Nobody on the island chain seems to know how to make a tonic and gin, but the wine list was interesting and had bottles on it that we didn't see anywhere else. Definitely worth a stop and if they are serving the beef cheeks, get over your initial reaction and give them a try, tasty!"

  • "We had a great time food gets a 9 out of 10 service impecable, a little bit on the quiet side but totally worth it! I had the traditional fish and it was super good! salad was average!"

  • "Food, service and ambiance are among the best in Oahu. Although many place Orchids on the list of restaurants to celebrate a special occasion it is an experience that should be savored at any time - dining at Orchids in and of itself is a very special occasion. "

  • "This restaurant is a 10 in every possible way! The food is superb, excellently prepared and presented. Service is top notch, always attentive, never rushed. The restaurant is modern and immaculate, with beautiful floral arrangements. You can feel and hear the ocean breezes. I would put The Orchid on speed dial."

  • "My husband and I dined here on a Saturday night in May 2014. My meal consisted of the lobster bisque and the lobster and beef cheeks. Both were delicious. My husband had the duck carpaccio accompanied by dressing that he felt was totally unsuited to the dish (luckily from past experience elsewhere he has ordered the dressing on the side. His main was the so called signature dish consisting of a local fish with steamed bokchoi and coriander and a large bowl of white rice. The fish was over cooked and tasteless and the rice was gluggy and stodgy. Glad we were not eating with a table of 6 or more which required a minimum gratuity of 18%. Definitely not worth the money.But lobster dishes were great."
