    Amazing restaurant for a nice celebration or special occasion. The staff had impeccable attention to detail as well as a very professional and friendly attitude. Salads and tomato soup were our favorites. The entrees and coconut cake did not disappoint one bit.

    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!

    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 ♥️🤗♥️🤗

    I kinda expected better service because Orchids is supposed to be the best restaurant in the best hotel in Honolulu. It was difficult to get our server's attention even when we are ready to order. We dined in on Wednesday morning. Ocean view is the best thing to dine in at Orchids.

    We visited Orchids to celebrate our wedding day. They were so kind to arrange for us an intimate table on the beach front. Environment was so romantic, not noise at all, perfect for couple. They also celebrated us with a piece of delicious cake. Excellent food and outstanding service. We could not ask more for our wedding dinner.

    Orchids was our best dining experience in Oahu. Everything was amazing- friendly attentive service and delicious food. The Mai Tai cocktail is the best in Oahu if not the world! We enjoyed everything we ordered. I hope I can return to Orchids in the future. Mahalo to Daniel and Scott who served us. As a resort, Halekulani is the best in Oahu for rest, relaxation and delicious dining.

    The service was phenomenal, the location is gorgeous. However, the food was bland, basic and the quality of Denny’s across the street. The only thing notable was the freshly squeezed juice. We did the complete breakfast vegetarian. Save your money and find another place.

    I booked a table for my granddaughters birthday and gave specific instructions on what table I wanted. I called back a week before our reservation and made sure that we had that table I requested. They confirmed it. I called the night of our dinner just to confirm and they said, 'sorry, we already gave that table to someone else. It ruined the rest of the evening for us as we sat in a much nosier part of the restaurant with all the servers passing by us constantly. Servers were great, but we won't be going back there again.
