Service was lacking. No refill of water during dinner. No one asked if we wanted anything further to drink during dinner. Surprising lack of attention considering it was a $700 dinner. Maybe due to the mandatory 18% gratuity.

Although highly recommended, we had a terrible experience at this restaurant. First of all the cuisine is not Mediterranean, it is French. And highly overpriced, even for Hawaii. No one ever came around to take our drink orders, when they finally took our dinner orders (at least 30 min later) we had to ask for drinks. It took FOREVER to receive our food. The entire restaurant cleared out before it arrived. And, again. no one asked if we wanted another drink.

Food was the right texture but had no taste. Overall, a mediocre experience and not worth the price. I would not return.

Haven't been there in a while, but nothing really has changed in the overall food and service. Kinda pricey, yes but you pay for what you see and get. Excellent place to take out of town visitors. They are blown away with the ocean view, especially on a nice day.

サンデーブランチで利用。ビューと雰囲気は最高です。
サービスは普通かと思います。オムレツのオーダーを忘れられましたが気にしていない様子でした。デザートはとても上品でおいしかったです。
一番良い席は欧米の方、それ以外は脇の席に固められている印象でした。欧米の方には満足度を確認していましたが日本人には省略していましたのでチップも最低限にさせていただきました。

We vacation in the Waikiki area annually and Orchids Sunday Brunch at Halekulani has become a family tradition. The menu is incredibly varied to suit ALL tastes and preferences and always out-of-this-world delicious. The service is exemplary and the ocean view from the main dining area at Orchids is unparalleled with Diamond Head in the distance and beaches in the foreground. One caution: book your Sunday brunch early especially if you're bringing a party of 5 or more -- they book to capacity very quickly. Thank you Orchids!

Excellent variety for the buffet choices, especially the seafood and sushi section. Multiple carving meats and omelette station also available. Great for special occasions. But pricey.

Great atmosphere. Food was very good. My wife's dish of an uncomposed seafood lasagne was delicious. My fish dish was good, too, but the fish was just slightly overcooked. Would return in a heart beat.

This was our third time to dine at Orchid. Their food is always delicious and the service is superb. They have a nice selection of local fish, well prepared. The view is wonderful and if you go by 7:30 or so, there may be live music on the patio next door.

The setting is lovely. The service was excellent until we received our dessert menus at which time our waiter disappeared. Food portions were small and did not rise to the level of the setting. Also, my meal came not as ordered. Even though I raised the omissions with our server it wasn’t rectified nor was any accommodation made.

飛行機のチケットが取れたと同時にサンデーブランチを予約しました。海の見える席に。
希望通り海に1番近かったのですが、3人のはずが2人席。1つ椅子を入れて座ることに。1人は4歳の子どもだったけど、きゅーきゅー。コーヒーカップは1人分しかないし。
ロケーションは良く、お食事は美味しかったけど、ゆったりは出来なかったです。

Shouldn’t take 15 minutes to process check once payment (credit card) was provided. It sat at the desk until waiter finally returned to area after dropping off for processing when he ultimately returned. Service otherwise was very good.

The Halekulani has several excellent eating options, with La Mer being the ultra-deluxe option. Orchids is almost as good. On the ground floor, the semi-open area is next to the open air bar that has the live Hawaiian music, so we could enjoy that, too. The service is very professional, and the food and drinks are both very good. This restaurant is delightful. I particularly enjoyed the lobster pasta.
