Do we need to take anything more than casual dress to eat at HWK, Orchids, Lemer, Etc.
You may dress casual, collar polo shirt and walking shorts for House Without a Key, but, you need to be dress with collar shirt and dress slacks for Orchids. LaMer requires a coat for the male and female will dress accordingly.
Give them a call at (808) 923-2311 and inquiry.
They may not deny you entry (particularly if you are a guest of the hotel), but, yes, you need more than casual clothes. La Mer requires long sleeves and jackets for men. See the link below and click on each dining location for the dress code.
I agree most places have beach bars as well, and love your business. If you are going to a fancier restaurant, you might stand out in shorts and flip flops, and some require coats. For the most part it is Hawaii, and they are laid back and understand you are on vacation.
Casual means different things to different people.
Le Mer is one of the few places I know of on Oahu that requires a coat, most other fancy places just require slacks and a collared shirt, I generally wear a coat to Orchids anyway, but with my Reyn's Spooner (Aloha shirt).
I generally wear the coat on the plane with dress slacks, I hate flying like a slob.
How nice and tolerant of you to call everybody on the plane not dressed like you a slob.
My first reaction to the title of this thread... is everything along Waikiki is casual. People do 'clean up' for evening, take a shower after the beach, put on nice fresh aloha-wear. Places like Hau Tree Lanai, Duke's, Shorebird, Ocean House, etc.
BUT you've picked among the few restaurants that actually DO have dress code requiring (or at least expecting) something a bit more!! -suze
Sorry but flip flops are not appropriate on planes and probably not shorts either.
BUT as I preferaced, casual means different things to different people and KailuaBred (explains a LOT!) I didn't define what a slob was, so drop the attitude.
