    We have been there before with the same result! The ambiance is great, as it is very close to the ocean. Food is of excellent quality, very flavorful and prepared to our liking. The wait staff is always there to help you with anything you need. If you are going to visit Hawaii Orchids is a must.

    Another beautiful evening - Orchid’s at the Halekulani was beautiful. The service is top notch. The food amazing and the view spectacular. We are on vacation celebrating our 20th anniversary and everyone greeted us “Happy Anniversary “ and they even gave us a special anniversary dessert - their famed coconut cake - Yum !

    Orchids provided a lovely fine dining experience on the beach, with great views of Diamond Head. The ambiance was very nice (e.g., well maintained). The wait staff was attentive. The food was good, but not great.

    After COVID and not being back for over 3 years we have been going to several restaurants we have frequented for over 12 years before. We were greatly pleased to see the tradition of service, great and fresh food is continued here as it has not at many other places in WAIKIKI. Again it was a memorable night made even moreso when the staff gave my wife a special birthday cake as it was her birthday that night. FANTASTIC AND GLAD TO BE BACK!

    This experience was absolutely wonderful from initial greeting to departure. My date and I are vegetarian, and the staff attended to these requests with careful detail throughout the entire meal. A quiet environment allowed for pleasant eventing, and the seating & scenery was simply stunning. Amazing food! Also, we had a very enjoyable- albeit slow and wonderful- time together and the staff was attentive and sensitive to this (we spent > 2 hours altogether). Look forward to another visit to Orchirds. Would recommend highly.

    Greeter was at the entrance of the hotel to provide directions. Hostess greeted us at the restaurant and served us cocktails until the restaurant was open and our table was ready. Table was very good. Nice breeze, view and music from house w/o a key. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. Food was good and served timely.

    Elegant food, attentive service, gorgeous surroundings. Definitely a good choice for special occasions, or just a day of luxurious lunch with friends. It is fancy but also has a sense of relaxation during lunch service. For lunch, a casual dress, pretty skirt and blouse, or aloha business shirt with slacks is just right.

    We ate at Orchids on our last night in Honolulu, and it was perfectly lovely! We sat at a table with a beautiful ocean view during sunset. What could be better? Well, the food was superb, the wine list notable...and we ate one the best desserts we've ever had, anywhere! Orchids was recommended by a friend, and we will recommend it to others. Fabulous experience!
