A perennial lovely setting in the middle of Waikiki with outdoor seating right at the edge of the water. Live music and hula dancers (known to be former Miss Hawaiis) make it even more authentic. However the service is terribly inconsistent, sometimes down right rude, and the food has gone missing of taste. Attempts to utilize the salt and pepper... More

Had dinner there two days ago. I must confess that I was disappointed. The restaurant is nice and the service is very friendly, but the food itself was below standard. I ordered what was described by the waiter as a sort of bouillabaisse- it was a prawn, a scallop, two pieces of fish and a mussel in a very tick... More

My wife and I came here for our anniversary. The views were very very nice.... the hotel is luxuriously modern. They wait staff are wonderful. This is truly a five-star restaurant. The best Tartar Tuna and carpaccio. And our risotto was perfect.

My wife and I went here for dinner on a Saturday night. It is very formal and you have to wear long pants. They let you borrow a pair if you have shorts on. The food was terrific and the services was fantastic. It was one of the best meals we had in Honolulu. I ask the chef to add... More

I was here for a business meeting and though the view and service was amazing the food was not. I was surprised at how much the quality has gone down at Orchids since this used to be one of the top places to eat not only as a tourist but also as a local. The lunch wasn't anything spectacular. Perhaps... More

We were visiting and were there for the Christmas buffet. A bit disappointed when we heard that they were serving buffet . . . until we saw it. Wow - better food than most restaurants - fantastic service and perfect ambiance. Grab a table out back and watch the sunset.

This is always our first place to go as soon as we are unpacked from a flight from the mainland. It sits right on the beach, open air and done beautifully with white table cloths and fresh flowers/orchids at every table. The wait staff is dressed in tux's but many who are dining here come in slacks and nice Golf... More

We have been coming here for years to celebrate our anniversary. In previous years, it has always been wonderful. Sadly, this year it was very mediocre. We decided to order three appetizers and one main course. The appetizers were a mixed bag. The calamari was awful. It was overly breaded and fishy. The Burrata was tasteless. The beef carpaccio was... More

Nice location and the food is good, but very pricey. Not sure couldn't do better looking for a place less touristy.
