The view is wonderful, particularly just before sunset, so it's best to eat fairly early here. The food unfortunately is pretty mediocre and industrial with respect to the price. The service can be rushed if they are busy, but usually it's attentive and caring. Directly above Orchids is the better, spendier (a lot spendier) continental restaurant, "La Mer," which is... More

The Halekulani Hotel is exquisite, and this restaurant is situated nearly directly on the ocean front, a perfect setting, under large umbrellas. This is where one may slowly graze on the best seafood, meat, pastries and island cuisine available, as much as you want, with no concerns as to time. There are simply too many items to mention; this is... More

Our first meal in Honolulu was breakfast at Orchids and we couldn't imagine a better way to start our adventure than with a beautiful ocean breeze and a view of Diamond Head. The food was delicious as well. We had fresh, sweet pineapple, banana ricotta pancakes, and haupia french toast.

Had the brunch here with my partner and omg what an experience. Everything from breakfast items to roast meats to salad to dessert to Japanese to Hawaiian to everything you could ask for. On top of that, 7 star venue, view and service and there is nothing more you could ask for. They know service here for sure!

We have dined at this restaurant for many trips but they made a menu change since our last time on the islands last February. The new menu did not deliver the flavor or the options you would expect! Overall it just did not meet our expectations so we will think hard before making another reservation.

One of our favorite restaurants in Honolulu. While pricey, it is well worth it. The staff is first class, they know guests who return and even know their preference - Mai Tai, Onaga (pink snapper) Orchid style and Coconut cake. The overall experience is heightened by the entertainment - elegant hula and great accompaniment.

Were seated promptly although we were 30min. early for our reservation. Staff was attentive,professional and knowledgeable about the wine list. We ordered the lamb, pasta and burrata starter. While all was very good, we feel it was very over-priced, especially for the lamb....the portion was ridiculously small.

Food was phenomenal, only reason for the 4 stars is because our server seemed to not be too knowledgeable on the menu or attentive to our table. Worth the money just expected a little better service.

After finding two restaurants and discovering that they were closed, we discovered this place close to our hotel. There wasn't a bar in the restaurant, so we sat at the bar in the hotel. The opened area of this restaurant is very scenic. They didn't have "beach" access, however, the view is quite stunning. Wine selection was ample. We ordered... More

We had dinner here with another couple. Everyone tried something different. Everyone raves about the food. The linguine with lobster was wonderful!
