    Orchids remains our favorite restaurant in Hawaii. So much so, that my wife celebrated her birthday here for the seventh time, and it's not just for the free coconut cake. The food, the service and the beautiful setting can not be better. We are looking forward to returning again next year or my wife's birthday.

    The food quality was outstanding. The fish was fresh and nicely presented. The seafood selection was great, including raw oysters and snow crab legs. The carving station had many options, too. However, I wish there was more of a selection for the price point. I'm guessing that something has to give due to the quality of the ingredients. The service was on point. They were usually intuitive and took care of things before you asked. The view of the ocean was an added bonus. I would definitely return.

    Beautiful setting, excellent food and service. Music and hula dancer seen and heard from the House without a Key was a bonus. The goat cheese and burata salads, filet mignon, Hawaiian sea bass, and Mai Tais were all exceptional. Coconut cake was light and a delicious way to end our meals. The best meal we've had in Hawaii.

    Average food at resort level prices. Service was good, ambience is great. Food was not hot when served. We sent the Octopus back twice. There are better places to eat where the food and value are much better. If not for the setting (Ocean, music, etc.) I doubt the restaurant would survive.

    We live here in Honolulu and had frequented Orchids on a number of occasions but last night was one on the worst experiences we’ve had anywhere in Hawaii. From start to finish it was almost a comedy if it wasn’t so bad. It started with a simple request for breadsticks and we were told that they are only available if we order the lobster bisque soup. So no bread sticks for us. The cocktails ordered were served in error, and replacements never came, (but the charge remained on the bill). The main course descended to the delivery of the signature beef cheeks which were covered, literally covered in sauce akin to soup (we have pictures of them as evidence of this badly prepared entree) with no offer to accommodate a change, the excuse was “… we’re to busy to serve another entree…”. The branzino was fishy to smell let alone to eat… which we received a credit for. This hotel should know better, as it WAS a place of special note. No longer! Stay away.

    Always fun to bring guests here for an extraordinary brunch experience. Typically the wait staff are very professional and courteous. This visit we had a waiter who had been working too many hours and was not on top of his game. Food and atmosphere were great but service was not typical of previous visits.

    We arrived on time for our reservation only to wait 30mins before being seated at our table. When we asked about our table after 10mins, they said they are "setting up the table" only to wait another 20mins. They didn't even call us, I went to the front to complain and they seat us then at a wrong table (bigger table than the number of party) and made us move after we settled. Food is great, but felt that not everything needed to be served by the cooks. As for the table service, some waiter were outstanding, some not so much. They were very attentive though, so that was great. Overall, it was a good experience but host / front felt disorganized and we didn't appreciate the wait time and no transparency into how long we had to wait. For the price we paid, we expect better.
