My parents loved the seafood stew. Can’t recall what they call it, but they thoroughly enjoyed it. Open air dining, so it was a bit warm. Great service and atmosphere, but a bit expensive. Good for special occasions.

Simply fabulous! The views of Diamond Head from our lawn-side table at lunch was magnificent. Of course, the food (especially pasta and the chocolate tiramisu with gold garnish dessert) was healthy and picture-perfect! Love how an appetizer is included in the price of a dish (during lunch). The burger I ordered featured mushrooms and bacon upon it, plus lots of side salad greens - all very flavorful and healthy! Looking forward to coming back again!!

We had a lovely Father's Day breakfast here. I hadn't been here in a while and I had forgotten how lovely it is to sit on the lanai near the ocean with Diamond Head in the distance. Wonderful meal and excellent service. Must come here again soon.

A beautiful day was the icing on the cake for a most delightful lunch at Orchids - a "must do" whenever I visit Honolulu. The fried calamari is tempura style and never fails to please. The fried brie with thyme mango puree was a perfect lead-in to the grilled seabass. The tagliolini was perfectly cooked and enough to take home for next day lunch. Decided to try a different dessert - hooked on the signature coconut cake - and this time tried The Tropics, delicious and picturesque white chocolate mousse with a kalamansi centre and dried lychee. It was magical.

Service was impeccable as always. Looking forward to my next visit. Aloha.

老舗のホテルは本当に立地が最高。そこにお金を払う価値があるレストランだと思いました。
もちろんお店の方々も親切でした。お料理は朝食でしたが、ビュッフェと違って静かにゆっくり食べる事が出来ました。

私達に?なのか別に他意はないのか、他テーブルの片付け中、ナプキンをお皿に放ってたので一瞬「ん?」と感じました。それと、ドレスコードとありましたが、日本人のカップルは普通にビーサン、短パンだったので、よくわからない…というのが本音です。ただ、パンケーキも美味しく、朝の景色は素晴らしかった。

Well, we visit the Halekulani every year. Breakfast is always on the list at least once. The popovers and Poha jam along with the view are worth any price. Usually the service is perfection. The host and hostess greeting people are tops and the seating was prompt and good location
Our server is the one we had on our last visit..... I did not comment then, but will now. He needs to be watched. He acts like he listens, yet he half listens.... his back up team saves him. One should not have to ask where water is that was ordered or wonder why coffees are not kept filled and warmed. Our waiter who I could name ( but won't, because my hope is that management just begins to watch better) seems to be resting on his tenure rather than watching over the tables that are in front of him. If I return , I will request to not be in his section.
I suggest, if you go, and you should.... that if you feel things are not 100%, Say something.
This is not a cheap breakfast service, the food is good and the setting is the very best. The service should match.
Take a walk managers, look at people's faces, look at the tables and the empty cups.... we heard others asking for the same things we had to.
This should not be the norm, this hotel is too good.
All of the waiters supporting staff was 110%

Gorgeous, open-air setting on Waikiki Beach. Food was scrumptious and the plating was artful. Service was excellent. Highly recommend if you are looking for an upscale setting for a special dinner.

There is no complete fence between restaurant and outside of restaurant.
So homeless (maybe) reach over from outside of restaurant and ate the Sushi with bare hands, so I couldn’t eat Japanese food.
I was disappointed it.

I made my reservation 3-weeks in advance and when we checked in we had to wait 30 minutes for our table and missed watching the sunset. I saw multiple parties walk in before us without a reservation be seated before us, which I found very annoying. The only thing that turned this experience around for us was the great customer service by our server, who we thought was exceptional. I believe his name was Rob. As for the cuisine, it was good and creative. It just wasn't the best meal that we had during our time on Oahu.

新婚旅行のディナーで行きました。海辺のテラス席の雰囲気が素晴らしく、また、同ホテル内の隣のレストランから聞こえるハワイアン音楽も素敵でした。価格は安くない(2人でワイン計4杯含み325ドル程度)ですが、料理の質(蟹のラビオリ、フィレステーキ、ココナッツケーキ等)・提供速度やスタッフのメニュー提案も申し分なく、大満足です。日本語メニューあり。

Our first time visiting Orchids. We enjoyed everything about our time spent here. The view, the live music playing in background, the prompt and friendly service. The food was delicious as well, although not what I would call casual dining. We’ll definitely return when we have something to celebrate!

Quite disappointing. I live on Oahu and had 2 business guests staying at the Halekulani, so we arranged a breakfast meeting for 5 of us. We had a 9:30 AM Saturday reservation and we arrived at the reception area on time, but even though the restaurant was almost empty, it took them 15- 20 minutes to get our table ready and seat us. The outdoor dining of course is beautiful, but the service throughout the meal was pretty poor and the food was just mediocre. Definitely not up to Halekulani quality.

We got lucky enough to try Orchids on our honeymoon thanks to a gift from a friend! Everything was fabulous, including friendly courteous service, delicious food, and a beautiful view right next to the oven in Waikiki. Normally I wouldn’t go to such a pricey spot, but for a special occasion it’s totally worth it!! They even comped us a delicious coconut cake for dessert with congratulations on it!

結婚35周年記念のディナーとして予約。
予め記念日である旨をメールで伝えていましたが、当日はテラス席の真ん中、ハウス・ウィズアウト・キーのフラショーが良く見えるテーブルに案内されました。
天気は曇りで残念ながらサンセットは見られずでしたが、最高の雰囲気の中、スタッフからもお祝いのメッセージやシャンパン、デザートのプレゼントをいただき妻も感動至極で、大変良い時間を過ごすことができました。
隣で日本人のウエディングディナーが開かれ、やや煩い感じがしましたが、まぁ致し方なし。
食事はアラカルトを頼むつもりでいましたが、勧められたセットメニューが量・質共に私たちにマッチしていました。

また来年ワイキキを訪れた際には、是非利用したいと思います。
