Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What a beautiful location and food was amazing! The staff was so very attentive, from recommending the best starters, drinks and main courses to surprising us with a decorative desert congratulating us on our 30th anniversary! Will definitely visit again if ever in the Waikiki...area!More

Our very first visit at this restaurant. We normally dine upstairs at La Mer whenever we’re in town. Unfortunately this time around, not everyone wanted to spend too much so we ended up here. Surprisingly, the food is very good, staff were attentive and the...ambiance was nice. There is another restaurant across from here within the property at Halekulani that is more casual and less expensive. Orchids is in between the 3 restaurants offered at this hotel. The hotel is very nice and Orchids is perfect for anyone who doesn’t wanna spend too much and yet, get more for their money’s worth. I do wanna come back again but La Mer reigns supreme in my book except of course it is triple the price. I highly recommend this restaurant for its value and food.More

Beautifully prepared and presented dishes served by attentive and thoughtful staff. We enjoyed dinner there during our visit to Waikiki and came prepared to spend a little more. We were lucky to be seated at a table with gorgeous sunset view followed by great view...of the Hula show across the grass at the House without a Key.More

It wasn’t for the hostess. My experience will be five star the food and the service in this restaurant is outstanding. I made it as my go to Restaurant in Honolulu. The biggest problem with the situation I see it’s always the first impression. Somehow...the hostess is always treat. The guest was a little bit arrogant and undertone. I will give them to star this time because of the way I was treated but the service. from Michael is outstanding, you have to try the seafood lasagna. Steak Florentine to share. I will be going back soon.More

We did not have a good view of the ocean but there was music and a hula dancer next door we were able to see so that was enjoyable. Every dish was a work of art. The service impeccable. The hubs and I both had...the Lobster Bisque they brought a bowl with a small piece of lobster and a dollop of creme fraiche, then the waiter poured the soup from a small pitcher into the bowl. There was a savory pastry stick across it. It was delicious! I had the Lasagnette also very good, and my husband had the Grilled Scallops and Tiger Prawns. Also delicious! We had told them it was our anniversary and the comped us a slice of their coconut cake with Happy Anniversary written in chocolate on the plate. My husband was going to order it anyway, so I tasted it and let him eat that while I ordered the Tropics it was a bit of heaven! The portions are small so if you are a big eater you will want one of the mid dishes as well. We didn't order drinks only coffee and our bill was $200 with tip. Not somewhere to eat all the time but definitely worth it for a fancy occasion.More

This restaurant has a superb view and it is beautifully designed. Service is attentive, kind and fast. Regarding the food, starters were disappointing, mains were good and the desserts were amazing. Try the tiramisu cake, you won't regret it. Rather expensive but went expecting that.

Review for dinner experience. Traditional Hawaiian restaurant, with super experienced servers and creative cuisine building on island themes. The asparagus soup was delicious as was the coconut cake for dessert. Quiet and welcoming atmosphere in front of the ocean. Highly recommend.

On the returning day from Hawaii, I went there for breakfast with my husband for the first time. This is our first time Hawaii trip and so excited to visit Orchids breakfast. I made reservation via customer service at Halekulani where we stayed and changed...date/time through their once, but received confirmation by text to my mobile phone. Upon arrival, one hostess at the reception kept talking to a man who looked regular customer, or her friend and we left unattended for many minutes. Then I talked to the other hostess, but she just looked at the tablet and said arrogantly “No reservations.” I showed my confirmation and the first hostess found ours and guided to a table by the beach. I was surprised that they never said sorry for us. In the restaurant, there was a wait who never smiled, and he poured coffee before I answered yes. We selected salmon eggs benedic and pancake with ricotta cheese/banana and had to wait 40+ minutes to start eating. The blue sky, pleasant breeze and blue sea were relaxing, but the taste was very average. An older Asian waiter was smiling and behaved professionally, though, overall, I don’t think their service was disappointed.More
