My hunny made a surprise reservation for us at Orchids, it was actually on my bookmark for awhile and I honestly forgot about it. We wanted a romantic evening so this was a wonderful surprise. We valet parked at Halekulani, which is free I believe. I was worried about the restaurant being open to the outside, cause in my experience it was always super hot and uncomfortable when dining, I was so happy that it was nice and cool, since we had to ocean breeze, the environment was perfect. We decided to splurge a little and order the chef tasting menu! First course: tuna tartare with Crème fraîche, and buttered toast. Never thought tuna would go well with Crème fraîche but it pairs nicely. Second course: lasagnette, fresh, house made pasta with scallop and prawns, scallop was cooked perfectly along with the shrimp, I love the taste of fresh pasta, only thing I didn't like with it was the avocado and would of opted for more cherry tomatoes. Third course: The dish I need to rave about, which is the Branzino alla Mediterranean, crispy fish, sliced and cooked artichokes with veal a jus sauce. This was the most heavenly dish I have ever had. I swear on this earth I will come back for this dish. Fourth course: Grilled filet with Hudson valley foie gras and red wine sauce. Filet was cooked medium rare, just how I like, with creamy foie gras, the red wine sauce added some sweetness. Fifth course: Dessert! I was so stuffed I didn't think I would even finish, but I pulled through. It was a white chocolate mousse with lychee gele, so good and so pretty to look at! Beautiful dinner, I highly recommend the tasting menu!
Wasn't exited when I left. Use to be my favorite place and would rank it 5 stars but this time, NO WAY.  Forgot to bring my wine until after my plate showed up. Filet had zero flavor was tough plus they stuck some nasty sauce on it. To me they do that to cover up the flavor of bad beef. Pity.
We dined here for Sunday brunch and we had amazing time! Reservations is highly recommended well in advance as they fill up very quickly especially for holidays. It has beautiful terrace and if you can, sit there to enjoy the Diamond Head view. I love they have a classic pianist live and have such a calm luxurious environment. Many varieties and options at the buffet you can definitely find something you like there. Service was also excellent and we had such amazing time. You can park at the hotel valet and get it validated for free parking.
