The burger was blah! The soup (French onion) was blah as well.. cost a bomb.. disappointing. Also, one of the reviews talked about a buffet-style meal. That is definitely not the case. Try the Hyatt next door.

There 16 of us at two tables yet the service was so quiet and effective and personalized that it was an intimate dining experience. Each course was perfect. The grouper was my entree and it was delicious.

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!

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.

You should call the restaurant and ask what is available.
