From the friendly face of Kelly upon arrival at valet, to the expert recommendations of our waiter, Solomon, and the superb wine pairings and conversation with our table captain, Joel, our 25th anniversary celebration was perfect. Orchids is a treasure!

Five-Star food, preparation and service. Expensive, but worth it for a special occasion. The art-deco dining room is perhaps the most beautiful in the Midwest.

We visited for brunch and it was incredible! It was a Buffett style menu, but unlike any buffet that we ever been to this was extra special. It was basically 5 star food, with a 5 star presentation. The service was top notch as well....More

I'm sure it changes regularly, so even if I were to look that up for you, it would likely be different by the time you went. Best option would be to call them, as they are very responsive.

While we were there, the patrons mostly wore business casual. There were many tables with the diners in suits and more upscale wear. Therefore, you would be comfortable in either depending on your taste and the occasion.
