Suggestion for Post-Wedding Meal in Waikiki/Honolulu

Getting married on Oahu next June (very excited). It'll be a small wedding with about 12 of us total.

We're not having a formal reception after the wedding, but rather we would go out of a meal afterwards. Never been to Hawaii before so looking for some suggestions from those familiar with the area. Here's the details:

We are staying in Waikiki (Outrigger Reef) so something within walking distance would be ideal, although a short cab ride is also doable.

Ideally, we'd like to find a place that would offer some kind of private area for our party, so that we wont have to worry about disturbing other diners.

As for food choice, we are pretty flexible, but probably seafood/steak would be easiest, to make sure everyone's tastes are accommodated.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Also, how far in advance do you think I would need to make arrangements.

Thanks

IMO, the Ocean House Restaurant in your hotel would be a lovely place for a post-wedding meal, especially if you can get them to block off a few beachside tables.

Here is a picture I took at sunset while sitting at my table.

You'd have to take a taxi but you could try The Willows. They have a nice buffet and you can get a private room there.

Roy's Waikiki. Roy's has a website but not for this particular restaurant, so I'm not sure if they have a private area, but all it takes is a phone call. I was there several months ago. We had a party of about 20 in a semi-private area. For folks who have never been to Hawaii, this is a perfect restaurant. It's walkable from your hotel, has steak and seafood options, beautiful surroundings.

I've not been to the new Roy's but know the location and agree this would be a lovely spot. The Halekulani next door to the Outrigger has some lovely restaurants as well, but may not be able to provide the privacy sought.

For reasons unclear to me, Roy's in Hawaii have a separate website.

Roy's would be a great choice. As Nobu is also in the area, you could start there with a Champagne 95. And after dinner take the party to House Without a Key for Halekulani's coconut cake.

Alternately, outdoor seating at Orchids would also be very nice for the group.

Roy's Waikiki is right across the street from your ORR hotel (corner of Kalia and Lewers) Food and service, as noted are excellent. Expensive.

Any venue at the Halekulani next door to your ORR would be excellent, but very expensive. Am sure the hotel could provide a venue for a private/semi private dinner for 12 somewhere.

Let me add my suggestion for Roys but only of you can get a private room. The main dining room is noisy and you'll often find families eating in there (FYI, Roys is great with children. Once you sit, crayons and coloring paper is put on table and zippy cups provided). We often celebrate special events there.

I believe the Hawaii locations are still owned by Roy and the company that owns Outback has the rights to franchise elsewhere following Roy's guidelines.
