Great location at a beautiful hotel. Menu is good. It's a little pricey but not too bad, especially for a date night or a special occasion and quality was good. Ambiance is beautiful.

we sat on a lovely table facing the ocean and a nice open area of grass. greeted well. breakfast selections all looked yummy. my guest had the benedict. i had the vegetarian breakfast . very yummy. it’s a beautiful setting. tables far enough away that one doesn’t hear other conversations interfering. orchid plants decorate the restaurant. staff is very courteous and attentive. it was a very enjoyable experience.

Haven’t been in several years.. but will return in much shorter time span. Same great ambiance, but improved on both food prep and service since couple years back.
Had one of the best dinners I’ve had in a long time. Highly recommend going back if you haven’t been in awhile.

The best service in Waikiki
Food was almost on point. My scallops were not to my expectations otherwise everything else satisfied me.
Wine list was great but too pricey. Buying wine from the ABC store and bringing it would have been more of added value. Lesson learned.
Kudos again for over the top service and excellent staff

Service was fantastic and food was amazing! Nice little extra surprise for my husbands birthday which definitely gave the x-factor.... Ahi tartare 👌 ... I’m going to give 9.99/10 and that’s just because the chairs are a bit dated - totally nit picking! I’d be back in a heartbeat. Thanks so much x

Beautiful views of Diamond Head and the setting sun into the pacific horizon. Balmy breezes, elegantly set table service, outstanding attentive but not push service. High quality delicious menu of seafood and protein, extensive wine and drink menu. Beautiful live Hawaiian music of classic melodies and dance performance nightly across the manicured lawn. What more could one ask for in Hawaii?

My wife and I are in Honolulu and wanted to have dinner with an ocean view and fresh seafood. Orchids exceeded every expectation we had. Everything from the cocktails and food, to the ambience and attentive staff made this a place that we will certainly return to every time we come back to the island.

エッグベネディクトをオーダーしましたが、やや冷めており、盛り付けも適当な印象。
付け合せのポテトにも、人によって添え物があったりなかったりでした。
忙しかったのか、日本人だからなのかわかりませんが、決してお安くないので、リピートはしないと思います。

Very nice restaurant, scenery, service, and ambiance, but the food was just OK and was very overpriced. I don't mind paying those prices, but the food needs to be good enough to warrant it. Beautiful presentation, but the flavors just weren't there. I'll likely go again and try something different next time.

We visited Orchids for my dads 60th birthday. I had asked before hand if we could be seated by the water, they said they would try but it could not be guaranteed. When we arrived we were greeted by the hostess who warmly wished my dad a happy birthday. We were seated by the water and the lighting and ambience was beautiful. All our servers were very sweet and you could hear the music from their other restaurant in the background. Food was spectacular! Some of the best we’ve ever eaten and presented beautifully as well. Dessert was gorgeous and we also received a complimentary cake and cake for my dad. It was truly a great evening!

This place was nearly perfect. We stayed at the hotel. We ate at a table with a waterfront view. Service was very good. I had a veal chop which was outstanding. My wife liked her meal also. You won't go wrong with this place. It was our first dinner in Hawaii and one of our best.

I had a friend who has traveled all over the world suggest Orchid's as his favorite restaurant in the world!! He was right, my wife and I with our great friends celebrating our 40th while in Hawaii, had the best meal and service ever while sitting outside with a view of Diamond Head. What could be Better!!

前評判か高かったので予約しましたが
少し期待はずれでした。
オープンテーブルを予約したので、ダイアモンドヘッドがみえる外の席かと思ったのですが中の席で少し海がみえる程度で残念でした。
食事は私は美味しいと思いましたが、夫は不満そうでした。エッグベネディクトではなく和食にすればよかったと言っていました。つぎはブュッフェ形式の好きなものを食べれる朝食にしたいと思います。

あと店員さんが雑でした。
