    Beautiful setting, excellent food and service. Music and hula dancer seen and heard from the House without a Key was a bonus. The goat cheese and burata salads, filet mignon, Hawaiian sea bass, and Mai Tais were all exceptional. Coconut cake was light and a delicious way to end our meals. The best meal we've had in Hawaii.

    Average food at resort level prices. Service was good, ambience is great. Food was not hot when served. We sent the Octopus back twice. There are better places to eat where the food and value are much better. If not for the setting (Ocean, music, etc.) I doubt the restaurant would survive.

    We live here in Honolulu and had frequented Orchids on a number of occasions but last night was one on the worst experiences we’ve had anywhere in Hawaii. From start to finish it was almost a comedy if it wasn’t so bad. It started with a simple request for breadsticks and we were told that they are only available if we order the lobster bisque soup. So no bread sticks for us. The cocktails ordered were served in error, and replacements never came, (but the charge remained on the bill). The main course descended to the delivery of the signature beef cheeks which were covered, literally covered in sauce akin to soup (we have pictures of them as evidence of this badly prepared entree) with no offer to accommodate a change, the excuse was “… we’re to busy to serve another entree…”. The branzino was fishy to smell let alone to eat… which we received a credit for. This hotel should know better, as it WAS a place of special note. No longer! Stay away.

    Always fun to bring guests here for an extraordinary brunch experience. Typically the wait staff are very professional and courteous. This visit we had a waiter who had been working too many hours and was not on top of his game. Food and atmosphere were great but service was not typical of previous visits.

    We arrived on time for our reservation only to wait 30mins before being seated at our table. When we asked about our table after 10mins, they said they are "setting up the table" only to wait another 20mins. They didn't even call us, I went to the front to complain and they seat us then at a wrong table (bigger table than the number of party) and made us move after we settled. Food is great, but felt that not everything needed to be served by the cooks. As for the table service, some waiter were outstanding, some not so much. They were very attentive though, so that was great. Overall, it was a good experience but host / front felt disorganized and we didn't appreciate the wait time and no transparency into how long we had to wait. For the price we paid, we expect better.

    We normally go to the Orchids for special occasions such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, Birthdays over the years. We like to sit on the lanai where the view of the ocean is great and you get a nice breeze. During Christmas and Thanksgiving the buffet is fantastic and the best you can ever hope for. In the past we had gone to the Kahala Hotel but the food and service had greatly disappointed us. For example they had served fresh oysters in the past but now, the variety and offerings of food are limited compared with the price they charge. Our last meal at Orchids on Valentine’s Day was a little disappointing. The service at our particular table was poor and even the manager skipped our table when he checked on the tables around us. I think it was an off day or our table had some kind of energetic void. On the whole, Orchids is our go to restaurant for special occasions and we love the staff. We already have our reservations for Thanksgiving and Christmas 2024.

    Absolutely one of our favorite places in Waikiki! Gorgeous setting, especially if you get an "outdoor" table with a view of HWAK's garden. The prices were fair for the quality you were getting. Everything was prepared and presented perfectly. Cocktails are $25, but very good. Very quiet and peaceful. Found it to be very romantic, but saw many people meeting for work lunches, too.

    The coconut cake is still great. Service was very good and Oceanside table very nice. Wish I ordered the burger and fries but the table went for salads which were ok. Had the prawn chef salad -three prawns, two thin orange slices and the rest run of the mill greens. Lunch crowd was slow. I suggest hiring a Japan based ad agency to target Japanese and regional agencies for east and west coast us. Need real marketing agencies to improve the quality of our tourists. We are the jewel of the pacific. What's so hard about conveying that message?

    For such a very special occasion which was noted when making the reservation, I am very disappointed. The restaurant is very beautiful and we were greeted with such kindness. However, while the food was good, the service was poor. There was a 25 minute wait in between soup and salad and the main entree. Our server never came back to check on us. When Paul, the guest of honor (Celebrating his 65th birthday) inquired of Jason, our waiter about the delay, Jason blamed the wait on Valentine’s Day which was 3 days away. He did offer to send his manager over, but I told him not to bother. I didn’t want to ruin the mood of the celebration anymore than the poor service already had done.
