    For the price, the service should have been way more attentive. The food was just mediocre. The only thing that is going for this restaurant is the view.

    The food was fantastic and only outdone by the great wait staff they were kind, friendly, and very attentive. The service was timely and the servers were very knowledgeable and gave great recommendations. They also went out of their way to take photos of us with the view in the back. I spilt espresso martini on my brand new white shirt and the server brought out club soda for me and I didn’t even ask now the stain is gone. Orchids is a must when in Hawaii and can’t wait to come back!

    This was my second time dining at Orchids in two months. Service was both overfamiliar and inattentive. Our waiter over shared his pandemic experience. We waited a long time for our food which wasn’t hot. Food was clumsily seasoned and heavy and one note. Waiter left us hanging at the end because he was so eager to relay his pandemic experience we didn’t get our bill. Beautiful, beautiful setting which is why people keep on coming back.

    Amazing spot with beautiful views and high quality standards. Had a great breakfast here, side portion of sausage only came with one piece - but the meal was very filling and tasty. Only down side that I found was that the coffee was quite poor, not sure if it was a bad carafe or batch but I won't be getting the coffee next time.

    This is probably the best restaurant where you can enjoy the beautiful ocean front surroundings and watch the sunset. The food is generally good. Cost is on the high side but you cannot beat the location. My first choice, especially for a special occasion.

    An outstanding lunch experience--so welcomed after a long hiatus! The 2-course prix fixe menu is genius: a very strong selection of appetizers and entree for a most appealing and reasonable price. The entre selections are unusually satisfying--the seafood curry as ever but what caught my eye was the exceptionally rare (these days) offering of whole roasted (excellently roasted) Cornish hen! You hardly ever see it these days. Outstanding presentation--and it was the whole bone-in bird! A big part of the joy of having this dish with the bone in is the satisfaction of being able to artfully deconstruct the bird with knife and fork--without getting it all over oneself. Thoroughly enjoyed the immersive experience--a deboned breast only presentation would have been so much Less satisfying and rewarding. Finally, is it my imagination that the signature coconut cake is so much fluffier and tastier than before?! We will be back for the dining as well as the relaxing and rejuvenating after-experience of sitting amongst the quiet garden ambience before departing home.

The perfect table at the waters edge. Food was outstanding. Thanks also to Steve for stopping by the table to make sure everything was up to par even though it was a busy night. Great place if you want to experience luxury . Frank Correia

    Great ambiance- horrible food. The lobster bisque and tomato soup was edible but had little taste. The fish was bad- very bad so we sent it back. The wine and bread was good! The staff was very polite and the ocean view was beautiful. Go for a drink and the view- not the food.
