Lovely Christmas Day lunch buffet but we really felt the Christmas atmosphere was lacking. We sat looking at House without a key and wished we had gone there. I asked for a cocktail that wasn't on the Orchids menu but that was on House without a key (10 steps away) and the waiter said no so I walked across and ordered it from their bar myself. When the $ comes to over $700 for a lunch 2 adults 2 kids, I would expect better service than that. Nevertheless, the buffet was nice.

Beautiful and romantic restaurant with an amazing terrace viewing the water. Dinner was amazing and we received the coconut cake on the house as we were celebrating 1 year anniversary. The property is elegant and quiet, away from the herds of people bear the Sheraton hotel area. Highly recommend it for a romantic dinner!

Some of the best service you will find in Honolulu, beautiful view of Diamond Head and, fantastic food - is what you will find at Orchids located in the Halekulani. More like a fine dining rather than a hotel restaurant experience. Remember to try the popovers - a tradition that harks back to the original Halekulani.

My husband and I don't typically eat at hotel restaurants, but wanted to switch up our date night routine and headed out to Orchids at the Halekulani on Friday. Not only were we shocked by how much we loved it, the service and food was some of the best we've had here in Honolulu. The staff is friendly and knowledgable about the menu (a small detail, but it seems rare these days!) and willing to accommodate for my food allergy. We had a wonderful view of Diamond Head and the sunset and some delicious cocktails. The food was a true treat - we enjoyed the Burrata, goat cheese ravolini + crab ravioli. All was excellent! I would recommend this for a special night out for adults.

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Orchids, and it was a very memorable experience. We had a great table - wonderful view of Waikiki Bay. Very good service, and excellent food. It was expensive, but worth it!
