Orchids is situated on Waikiki Beach, but given that the restaurant is connected to upscale Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star Halekulani, you shouldn’t show up wearing shorts and flip-flops. During the daytime, resort wear (think Tommy Bahama) is the norm. Come dinnertime, Orchids requires a collared shirt and pants for men, and women dress to match, often in flowing dresses appropriate for the romantic, tropical oceanfront atmosphere (a dress code that, believe it or not, is surprisingly rare on Oahu). And, yes, in case you’re wondering, orchids are found throughout the seafood restaurant — small sprays and single flowers are displayed throughout the dining room and on the white, linen-draped tables.
