It was my 60th birthday and I wanted to find a special place both in honour of the occasion and a highlight to our trip to Hawaii. I was not disappointed.

The ambiance created atmosphere that both enchanted and engaged .. the service is second to none - attention to detail, privacy when required, knowledge .. the food was .. umm .. actually i cannot think of word that would adequately encompass the emotion it evoked .. enough to say that this place is more an experience than a meal. The wine list was quite extensive .. even a few from Australia which made me feel like home :-)

I would HIGHLY recommend this restaurant .. thank you Orchid for providing me a memory !

Us locals stay clear of Waikiki, but Orchids keeps us coming back. What a great way to celebrate our 24th anniversary. We got married at the Royal Hawaiian, but we chose to come to Halekulani. Orchids has the romantic ambiance, good view, delicious brunch buffet with 4hr complimentary valet parking ... but it's the EXCELLENT service that makes it worth the time and effort. No other place in Waikiki treats you as great as the special staff at Orchids. Top notch!

Booked in for 630 pm to view the sunset
Did not disappoint
The service was good but forgot to ask if we required water upon sitting down

The food was amazing
Wife had the crab pasta and I had the clam pasta
Both where good portion sizes and great flavours
Tiramisu was great and wife had the signature coconut cake . Light and fluffy

Overall a great experience but pricy but then you do pay for quality and the view

We were here for lunch - it was wonderful/lovely/exceptional. The view is breath taking - the patio boarders a small lawn and then the ocean appears. If one were much closer one would be in sand. The décor enhances the view and the casual elegance of the environment. Staff is attentive and professional. The food does not disappoint. This was our first visit but it will not be our last.

I have patronised this restaurant periodically since 1988 and it continues to surpass most. Attentive service and innovative dishes. Perfect setting by the sea.
