    I can't find anymore available seats at ohana is it possible to walk in and wait to see if we can have dinner there

    Hi Marlene:

    It's always disappointing when a restaurant is full and you can't secure an ADR.

    Depending on the night, it's possible to dine at 'Ohana without an advance dining reservation.  The chances of you getting into 'Ohana, which is very popular, without an advance dining reservation will depend on how flexible you can be with your dining schedule, and how big your party size. There is hope in getting a walk-up, and I've seen it happen. There are last-second cancellations and seats do sometimes open up unexpectedly. If you are willing to eat at "off" hours that aren't as popular - such as the first or last seatings - your chances of getting a walk-up reservation will increase. Of course, without an advance dining reservation, there's no guarantee 'Ohana will be able to accommodate a walk-up. But if you can be flexible with your dining times, and are prepared to possibly be told that you cannot be accommodated, then I say, go for it and try for a walk-up reservation. I would go as early as you can to increase your chances of getting seated.  Of course, if you have younger or older members of your party who may not be comfortable waiting to eat or being told that a walk-up is not possible, you many want to dine elsewhere.

    Good luck.
