Ordered the hors d'oeuvres, views of the water
Straight from a page of your favorite author

from Kanye West (Ft. Dwele) – Flashing Lights Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

“Hors d'oeuvres” is French for “appetizers”. They are eating in an upscale setting with a view of the water. Such a picturesque setting would be like something you would find in a novel.

“Oeuvres” also means writings, which relates to the next line: “Straight from the page of your favorite author”

This could be a reference to author Ernest Hemingway, who lived in Florida, spoke French, and often wrote about water.
