A beautiful sunny day with a beachfront view. The food was nice and service was splendid. Seemed like new staff except for the hostess but everyone love Orchids and Halekulani! So will you!

Service and scenery was great as always. The meal was good but not memorable. Maybe a caveat when the meal is deconstructed would help in selecting. The Classic Sazerac cocktail was great.

We went for brunch and to celebrate my birthday. The service was excellent though the meal was largely self-service. Nonetheless, at least four staff wished me a Happy Birthday. Orchids’ Sunday Brunch is not cheap at $70 each, but it is hard to complain about the value. Whole Kailua pig greets you at the beginning of the buffet line, next to a beautiful whole prime rib, a huge omelette station runs down another table opposite a breakfast table of speciality pancakes, salmon Benedict which my wife drooled over, down another column is the Asian selection with ahi, various pokes, sashimi, a huge bowl of cooked shrimp, smoked salmon and noodles and soups. On the other side of the room was the desert table with flan, bread pudding, blueberry cobbler and fancy pastries, including their signature coconut cake. And if you can handle it, there is the ice cream stand where a gentleman will help you create a sundae of your dreams. All this with the beautiful Pacific Ocean out the sliding doors. This is meal you really don’t want to rush. It is something we make sure to do every time we come to Honolulu - at least once!

Valentines dinner with my wife in Hawaii. Waiter was unfriendly, food was good, but in my opinion Orchids is over priced and over sold. Just disappointed.

The service is excellent and surroundings beautiful. Unfortunately it was raining and we could not sit out in the patio. We often go for cocktails and sunset.

Orchids is a wonderful scenic and culinary adventure. Our occasion was Valentine‘s Day and the combination of world class service, culinary excellence, sitting adjacent to the Pacific Ocean and watching the sunset from our table made for another memorable experience (we dined here on Valentine’s day in 1996 and our return for this occasion was even better than the memory!) Regardless of the date or the occasion Orchids is a “must” while visiting Waikiki.

This place is simply fantastic. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The food is definitely on the expensive side, but it is worth every penny. Probably the best dining experience I've ever had.

Spectacular! Every aspect of our Orchids dining experience (service, food, wine and ambiance) was spectacular.
For any occasion or just for an evening out Orchids cannot be surpassed. Particular nuances include a breathtaking backdrop of Diamond Head, Waikiki beach and the Pacific Ocean; the delightful and romantic strains of live Hawaiian music shared with House Without a Key; and gracious service that is very welcoming and not intrusive (our server, Dennis, and his team were wonderful).
Lobster, Hawaiian sea bass and goat cheese salad were well prepared and perfectly proportioned.
Orchids is an O’ahu restaurant that is not to be missed.

The service, food and atmosphere at Orchids was perfect. Will definitely visit again. I highly recommend this restaurant. The only thing that didn’t impress us is when we went to their outside sunset/small plates spot at House Without a Key and they were charging a cover charge because they had live music. This is not a bar and after just eating lunch here and now paying $18.US a drink.. I don’t think it’s appropriate to be charging a cover.
