Well, after 25 years of faithful patronage, someone decided to record us as a “no show” as we arrived at 8:13 for an 8 pm reservation. So much for the 15 minute grace period. The hostess ran to see if they could still accommodate us as the hood needed to be cleaned at 8:45pm. They did, we had a lovely dinner, as usual, and spent over $300 for 2, and they recorded us as a no show. Someone at the Orchids desk is wound a little too tight! Despite that, we had a lovely time and great food, and I’m sure the hood got cleaned. Lighten up people! Aloha.

Italian inspired restaurant in the Halekulani hotel close to the beach. You can dine on the open veranda overlooking the ocean promenade, which is very nice.
Excellent food and attentive service. You will also find Hawaiian local fish on the menu next to the Italian dishes.
Overall, very good restaurant in a relaxing-elegant setting.

Most extensive Brunch we have found on Oahu. It's pretty expensive at $70 a person so I suggest going with an appetite to get your moneys worth. Either way the food is really good and the service was excellent.

Service was great ever. I came here 20 years ago. Still great quality, hospitality and food. Next time I definitely will stay at this hotel and dine at Orchids everyday. Honestly room price is double than my budget, but if I could stay my budget hotel for 4 nights, I will stay at Halekulani for two days.

All the staff we came across made us feel extremely welcome - from the valet to the wait staff! Fast service, attention to details, beautiful patio looking out at the ocean, really great brunch selection and delicious. We will definitely come back and probably stay in the hotel because we had such a great experience at the restaurant.

This is a MUST visit and by far the best eating we had in Waikiki. We shall return.
Somewhat difficult to find by GPS. When GPS says " you have arrived at your destination"
look back and toward the left.

Our first visit to Orchids was for lunch 3 years ago, Coconut Cake.... Last year tried the Sunday Brunch , WOW! more Coconut Cake. This year we went to Sunday Brunch again, No disappointments ever, and did I mention the signature Coconut Cake. Chiffon cake with pastry cream and whipped cream and coconut, absolutely the best! Prime Rib, Turkey,Pig a big variety all excellent. Will be back again, next trip.

We had a wonderful evening at the Orchids restaurant. The service was attentive without being intrusive. Our waiter was knowledgeable and friendly. The food was great and the restaurant had a nice relaxed vibe. The restaurant was situated waterfront and the evening we visited there were fireworks going off and we had a wonderful view. We would most definately recommend this restaurant for a relaxed romantic meal or one with friends. It is not a crowded noisy place and probably not one for small children. I would visit again.

一番は、コストパフォーマンスかな。メーンデッシュ、飲み物、デザート等料理の質・味・量の割にはお値段が安いのでびっくりしました。
記念日にはアニバーサリーでケーキが振るまれました。
海沿いの落ち着いた雰囲気で、若い人(特にカップル)にはロマンチックなお店です。
やっぱり「ハレウラニ」だからでしょうか。

without a doubt you can't easily beat the view for a resturant meal in waikiki. but the hotel knows it too and uses it to leverage their above average food. we had the hapuia french toast (3.5/5) and their scottish benedict (3.5/5). Food was cook well (not mushy aservice was polite and non intrusive which i guess is good for the veiw, but nothing outstanding.

We had an amazing dinner at Orchids restaurant to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. They made us feel so special with all the staff we came across wishing us a happy anniversary. We got the table with the best view and it was lovely and romantic. The food was sensational and we were also given a complimentary dessert with "Happy anniversary" written on the plate. Such amazing service and a dinner we will never ever forget. Would highly recommend Orchids. Very special.

Wonderful early dinner through sunset, sitting in front row tables for ocean viewing. Service is very attentive and food was fresh and inviting. There is no rush and you can easily linger through a delicious meal. We both had seafood, done to perfection. The restaurant outdoor area is under a canopy and there is a small lawn area and hedge directly in front of it. This is a good buffer from the narrow concrete walkway on the ocean in front of the hedge. It is just slightly odd to have people constantly walking in front of you, but the distance gives a good buffer and of course there is a massive ocean to look at! Highly recommended.

モーニングで伺いました。ハレクラニなので決してお安くはないですが、景色も良くとてもゆったりとステキな時間を過ごすことができます。 オーシャンビューやガーデンビューなどのお席がおすすめですので、モーニングからディナーまで予約がおススメです。個人的にはモーニングがおススメです! サーモンのベーグルサンドはサーモンがかなりたっぷりで大満足です!!

A very nice brunch...perfect setting many choices something for everyone! Mimosa or other alcohol not included....would have liked to see more crab..small legs and nothing to crack them open. For the price lobster would have been nice. That said this was our meal for the day and everything we had was quite good.

We will definitely be back for a special occasion or to entertain friends.

The restaurant is set in a beautiful location right next to the beach. The decor is lovely and the service was very attentive. The food was just ok, nothing really that memorable and while is is $$ expensive that is expected for this part of Waikiki.

We went for a formal Easter dinner while vacationing. Unfortunately, Orchids was a disappointing dinner. Everything was very mediocre and blah. I should have listened to the most recent reviews. We will not return.

I had the best experience at this restaurant. The Hawaiian Seabass is flavored to the perfect extent and comes with an amazing asparagus mashed potato. My date ordered that while I went for the Scottish Salmon approach! It was so good! Melts in your mouth and everything. The plain black coffee had to wake us up. The service was great and the quiet was great next to that ocean front view! My new favorite spot🙌🏼💓

Pricey but absolutely worth it; amazingly graceful service and everything we were served was beautifully presented and very delicious.

Add to that impeccably maintained property, the Pacific Ocean at your feet and across the lawn was a traditional hula show to fill the air with soft Hawaiian music.

At about $125 a person with wine and dessert it was great value by Oahu standards. We were treated and felt like royalty.
