    Phenomenal brunch. Everything we had tasted great and was a well done spread of local food, sushi, great desserts and omelette bar. Service was also very good, never had an empty cup. Would certainly come back if I am back in Honolulu

    Orchids fails to disappoint, superior in all ways and so very thankful that you are back to having Sunday brunches. I was a little concerned as I had heard things had changed and indeed they have. I find your food stations with servers a wonderful innovation, even though I did enjoy the more open food service previously. However, I notice one can eat just as before going back for more if needed, with one difference, I think you may have less food waste as I know I tended to take more than I could eat! With your servers, food control is an improvement. Furthermore, your piano player was delightful and the Waikiki Beach, Diamond Head scenery is a winner. I look forward to our time there on Fathers' Day.

    The food was fantastic and only outdone by the great wait staff they were kind, friendly, and very attentive. The service was timely and the servers were very knowledgeable and gave great recommendations. They also went out of their way to take photos of us with the view in the back. I spilt espresso martini on my brand new white shirt and the server brought out club soda for me and I didn’t even ask now the stain is gone. Orchids is a must when in Hawaii and can’t wait to come back!
