Orchids is a beautiful restaurant inside the Halekulani. Views overlooking the Pacific Ocean and Diamond Head. Tables on the covered, outdoor lanai are right on the water. The food and ambiance are second to none. The service is impeccable.

結婚記念日にサンデーブランチを予約しました。子供が飽きないように折り紙の飛行機やクモをくれたり子供も大喜びで料理を楽しめました。食べ切れないほどの量で動けないくらい満腹になりました。
子連れのファミリーも多かったです。
気軽なお値段ではありませんが、雰囲気も素敵でお料理も申し分ないので記念日やご褒美にオススメです。

Attitude of hostess was snippy and dismissive. If we didn't know the restaurant, it would have turned us away. We celebrate a birthday every year at the same time and requested a special table. Among her excuses for not giving us the requested table was it was needed for Afternoon Tea, which started at 3 - we were there for lunch. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our birthday lunch. As usual, the food was superb - signature onaga over Chinese vegetables was delicious as was the lasagnetta; beef carpaccio and lobster bisque were exquisite. And of course, the signature coconut cream cake for the birthday girl was special, it never disappoints. Service was impeccable.

This was our second visit to Orchids. We had an excellent experience last year , so we decided to return with another couple to celebrate my wife's birthday. The evening was perfect, with impeccable service, excellent cocktails, fine food and all the little touches that make for a great evening instead of a good evening. Yes, Orchids is more expensive than some Honolulu establishments, but for the price you cannot get better value. Thanks to the staff for making the evening so lovely. We visit Honolulu every fall, and Orchids will be on our agenda for next year.

The place over looks the ocean and have a nice view of Diamond Head. The wait staff were attentive but not over bearing. The Hamachi and Ahi as first course was fresh and soft with the spicy gochujung sauce was perfect. The gnocchi and kabuki shrimp with pesto and tomato sauce was delish! The Cornish game hen was seasoned well and worked with the sauce. The star of the show was the Kona espresso tiramisu! It was covered in chocolate and it was perfect finish to the lunch course. 10/10 will do again!

We came here specifically for the Restaurant Week 3-course lunch menu for $39.

They gave complimentary bread (3 kinds) with butter, balsamic and EVOO, and olives - YUM.

The portions are generous and definitely worth it. Courses:
1) hamachi and ahi Crudo - unique and delicious, the sauce was tasty and strong without being overpowering and we loved it with the grapefruit
2) a WHOLE Cornish hen - perfectly cooked and tasty with that lovely lemon sauce
OR the shrimp with gnocchi - the gnocchi was pillowy and airy as it should, but the dish needed more shrimp and as a whole missed some Oomph in the flavor department
3) tiramisu - rich and delicious with that ganache-like chocolate and beautifully tart lilikoi sauce.

I love that there were different/balanced textures in each dish.

Gorgeous venue right on the beach. Service was pleasant, very timely and courteous.

Overall a very satisfying experience for the value.

Appetizer and dessert were fantastic - quality, taste and presentation. Main entrees had a lot to be desired. Cornish game hen was tough and with bones and difficult to eat. Even a hamburger would have been more appreciated! Gnocchi was ordinary. Service and ambiance was outstanding and made it a pleasant experience.

今回はサンデーブランチで利用しました。

朝昼だけでディナーは利用した事がありませんが、オーキッドは何度か訪れた事があります。

ハワイ6回目、一般的な30代サラリーマン家族の目線で、結論から言うと、サンデーブランチ、バイキングの内容がイケてないです。。。
某人気ハワイブロガーさんが激推ししていたので、楽しみだったのですが、なぜそこまでおススメなのか全く理由がわかりませんでした。

切り分けのお肉類(豚肉は丸焼きを切り分けしてたのは見た目インパクトあるかな?)、エッグベネフィクト、ケーキ類、アイスクリームバー、ポキ、お寿司、、、お料理自体珍しいものはなく、味もごくごく普通。
これでサービス料込みで1人100ドル弱。
コストパフォーマンスに欠けます。

ただ、レストランの雰囲気、眺望、そして気さくなのに上品なスタッフのサービスは大好き!何時間でも居たくなってしまいます。

気が良い。と言う言葉がぴったり。

1歳の子連れでしたが、到着時に子供が寝ていたら、ベビーカーのまま席に付けてくれて、ハイチェアも用意しておいてくれました。

代わる代わる子供に声をかけにきてくれたりして、そう言う意味では、本当に素敵なお店です。

バイキングはおススメしないけれど、ハワイに来たら行くべきお店、バイキングがすごく好き!という方を除いて、ぜひ普通のアラカルトでの利用をオススメします。

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.
