    I always take my Mom to Orchids for her birthday, and my family for our Xmas dinner and other celebrations. My reservations noted that it was my Mom’s birthday, and when we walked in you couldn’t miss the 5 dozen roses and gift bags. The young girl who was the hostess didn’t greet us, barely looked up and didn’t even wish my Mom a happy birthday. All she said was “follow me”. No Aloha for such a special place and certainly not the 5 star hospitality you’d expect from such an upscale establishment. Other than that, our waiter was very good, the food was excellent and we enjoyed the House without A Key entertainment and outdoor ambience. It was a shame that it all started on such a sour note. They need to train their hostesses better to appreciate that they set the tone for the evening by the way they greet their guests.

    I brought my mom here to celebrate her 70th birthday. We had a beautiful ocean front table and the food was fantastic. I did the Prix Fixe menu. Everything was fantastic (I had the NY Strip). The goat cheese salad had a little too much dressing on it for my tastes, but was delicious. My mom had the veal scallopini which was also excellent. Both of us had the coconut cake for desert. Now, I am not a huge fan of coconut, but this cake was DELICIOUS. So light and fluffy, it literally melted in my mouth. Overall, the experience was great. Since we were outside, the noise level was minimal and it was great to enjoy our meal with the sound of the ocean in the background. Great service and ambiance. Would definitely go back!!

    This was our 44th wedding anniversary; everything was top notch with one exception; I ordered the furikake ahi sandwich rare which it was, however it wasn’t the quality I expected. It had gristle which I had to request a sharp knife to cut. My wife had the mahi-mahi which was perfect. We’ll keep coming back to Orchid’s because it’s such a great experience every time; everyone slips up once in a while so I’m giving them a pass. By the way, they gave us their wonderful coconut cake for our anniversary which is the best cake you’ll ever experience.

Yes, they gave us a good table! and nice time with luxury atmosphere, delicious foods, drinks, and service. I’m very satisfied with choosing Orchids this time. Thank you.

    The seafood options will not disappoint. Serving sizes are just right and each item is uniquely flavored. Try the shrimp/prawn risotto with asparagus tips - amazing! The scenic views here at sunset are captivating. The staff are eager to please and will ask if you want your photo taken with the breathtaking sunset back drop. This place is nothing short of amazing! I highly recommend it - especially for a special occasion. We celebrated our 30th anniversary here.

    コロナの影響か、昔のオーキッズのサンデーブランチと違うのが残念。料理の数が少なくなり、ハワイでは最も美味しかったフルーツ、アイスクリームが全くない。日本人には並程度の味の寿司類が多く全く口にしなかった。肉類はローストビーフを含めてなかなかの味わい。

    Pulling up to the hotel the valet staff were very helpful and valet is complimentary! Being that it was our first time there they gave us directions to Orchids where we were welcomed by the host. (Not a far walk from the entrance of the hotel) We had reservations for Sunday Brunch on 9/25 and I had to make this reservation MONTHS in advance! The waiter explained everything, there was a small list of items that needed to be ordered directly through your waiter such as rice, pancakes/waffles, eggs Benedict etc.. but the rest was served at the buffet. There was a sushi/poke/sashimi station, fresh fruit/cheese/fancy meats section (almost like a charcuterie board but choose your own), seafood station (including oyster, crab legs, lobster and shrimp), ramen station, omelette station, carving station (Turkey, chicken, pork, prime rib) and a dessert station with lots of variety. Of course we tried every single thing and we were NOT disappointed! Everything was cooked well, great flavor. Poke had a great fresh taste, prime rib and pork cooked well, desserts were not only pretty but delicious as well! 10/10 and would LOVE to go back again! Also the view at our table was right near the ocean! Other tables were on the inside portion but the whole restaurant area is open air. And our waiter was great, he offered to take our pictures without us even asking!

    The lanai location overlooking the ocean and hula/slack key guitar are hard to beat. Our salds were fresh and tasty with goat cheese and local produce. We split a steak and were a bit surprised that we had to do our own "splitting." Local dessert with passion fruit was delicious! We will be back!

    Always love going to Orchids at Halekulani for lunch or dinner. Their service & food is always superb - We loved our waiter Benn who gave wonderful recommendations as well as some historical background of its hotel & popular dishes. Their Valet service is the best often passing out small bottles of water while waiting for one's vehicle ♥️🤗♥️🤗
