We had breakfast here on our first full day at Halekulani and it was just what we needed to overcome the jet lag. Great food, beautiful scenery, and first-class service - we're looking forward returning soon.

From the moment you walk in greeted with 'aloha' you know it's going to be pretty special. The atmosphere is serene, the ambience is elegant and the views are incredible. The manager Dante greeted our table, guided us through the menu, recommended wines that would pair well with our food and he made the whole dining experience one that we... More

Make a reservation on the outside patio of this restaurant for a real treat. You can watch the sunset and watch entertainment at the same time. The night we ate here there was rain so they dropped a plastic awning to keep us dry until it ended. They were very prompt to raise it again once the rain stopped so... More

I was expecting something of higher quality from this so we'll evaluated restaurant but I got disappointed. I ordered tuna tartar and both the tuna and the guacamole were so salty that it seemed that the chef was very distracted while preparing the dish. Also, $16 for a coconut cake that in the other restaurant (House without a key) of... More

If you can reserve a table on the outside of the patio (just off the grass), the view of Diamond Head and the sunset are beautiful. The food is very good and the service is attentive and professional and will answer or get answers to any questions you may have. We strongly recommend dining at this restaurant.

Open yet private seating with gorgeous views and live (entertaining!) entertainment right outside. Walking distance to shopping and nearby hotels. Everything was perfect, from the food and wine selections to the waitstaff to the whole dining experience. The wait for our entrees was a little over half hour, but since we were a large group (20) it was not much... More

We had breakfast at Orchids. Had a lovely table right at the edge of the restaurant with beautiful views. It's a very calm start to your day to have breakfast here.

Hard to find a better place for a gorgeous Waikiki sunset view, nice Hawaiian live music just outside, outstanding food and wine choices, meticulous service and a really welcoming venue and ambience

Everything about our dinner at Orchids was perfect. The setting oceanside is among be best in Honolulu. The cuisine matches the beautiful surroundings, and the service, well it is the Halekulani, so it's a level above. Sunday brunch is a grand experience separate from the daily breakfast, lunch and dinner they serve Monday-Saturday. Excellent choice for a special occasion.

Thank Rick1395
