Orchids at the Halekulani Hotel never disappoints. From the moment you drive into their driveway, the service is always top notch. Food is excellent!
One thing, we were a little early so we sat at the bar and had a glass of champagne. I asked about the choices and and she brought out two different bottles. I ordered a glass of their signature champagne and got charged $28.00 a glass. I’m not sure if they have less expensive choices but this are the two choices she gave us.
Dinner for the two of us with two appetizers and two mains with 2 mai tais came out to about $150 so the two glasses of champagne ended up being 25% of our bill. Good salesmanship on her part but I wish she gave us less expensive choices. I should have asked on my part.
Ambiance, service and food was excellent. Music from House Without a Key was a bonus!
Will definitely go again but next time I’ll order beers.

Beautiful setting with regard to restaurant and view. Sadly we waited quite some time for our wine and drink orders to be taken and served. The fish dishes were excellent, the chicken was nicely presented but somewhat dry. Wait staff again faltered, failing to serve soup course to one guest. To their credit, they did comp dessert for the entire table of 4, but then served the wrong flavor sorbet to one. Considering previous reviews, I was disappointed in the evening.

We love coming to Orchids for lunch. Great view and ambiance. Great food and wine but the service can be a bit slow. In the last 6 months, we have had lunch 4 times and each time we experienced slow service. We will continue to go back but would appreciate a more attentive service.

A gorgeous lunch setting with a wonderful menu of a variety of delicious options served by an exceptional staff. All for a very fair price point. With free valet parking, it's the finest fine dining option in town.

Great service - my reasons are accommodating regarding changing the time of my reservation and creating a soup that wasn’t on the menu. I was very appreciative. Thank you Orchids staff for making our visit a memorable one. See you next time 🤙

I love the Orchids location for special occasions. Love the ambiance, the seating that allows us to watch and enjoy the entertainment at the House Without a Key location. The staff are professional and very attentive. We made it clear we were in no rush and they gave us time. ALL of the flavors were excellent and all the food well prepared and presented. The highlight of the meal was the pasta which apparently was a chef's speciality. Also really enjoyed the Tiramisu for dessert, perfect balance of flavor and unexpected presentation.

Excellent food as always. Waiting staff excellent as always. The hostess was abrupt and we were seated 15 minutes late for our reservation. I suppose it would have been more acceptable if the hostess had been more friendly about it but it felt like we were an annoyance to her and she just waved us off to go sit in the living room. And the noise level was oddly high for this usual more quiet dining experience.

サンデーブランチで予約をして伺いました。到着日だったこともあり1時間半ほど遅れてしまいましたが、希望していた先に通していただけました。
日本語があまり通じないと伺っておりましたが、周りは日本人が多く、日本語も通じます。
雰囲気は人気のサンデーブランチの日だったためか、出入りも多く、正直大衆レストランのような賑わいでした。
食事もフルーツは固く酸っぱく、ケーキは甘すぎて私には合いませんでした。楽しみにしていたココナッツケーキも期待しすぎたのか特別美味しくはありませんでした。他のケーキよりも甘さ控えめな感じです。
メインの方も味が濃く、あまり進みませんでした。
サービスは良くも悪くもなく普通です。
お値段は$76+ドリンクで、割高です。
平常のお食事はまた違う味と信じて伺いたいと思いますが、サンデーブランチはもう行かなくていいかなっという評価です。
期待していた分、辛口な評価になってしまいましたが、個人的な意見ですので、ご自身でお確かめ下さい。

The restaurant has to be 5 stars based on ambience. The food was good, but not exceptional. Lastly, there was a loudmouth pseudo-celebrity at the next table, by himself, but talking loudly on his cell phone at such volume that we had to move to the far end of the restaurant. The staff tried to coax him off his phone, but he refused, and the staff let it go. Should have ejected him, or stopped serving. Very disappointing.

We have visited Honolulu twice per year for the past 5 years, and have eaten at Orchids every time we visited. The view is beautiful. The service and food are both always very good. However, the menu is too limited and a bit pricey for what we get.

Delicious meal in a lovely, classy setting overlooking Waikiki Beach and the Halekulani’s courtyard. Sunset Drinks beforehand in the House Without a Key make for the ultimate Honolulu evening.
