    The food was amazing; more limited menu then I expected. There is more then one menu available on the internet- one is obviously older but had more fish dishes. Would definitely fo back. The seared ahi melted in your mouth- divine sauce, excellent presentation. Short ribs- also delicious. Husband had the best burger he ever had!

    The food was good. I am a vegan so my choices were limited. Consider adding a vegan or whole food plant base option or ability to Veganize an existing entrée.

    The best restaurant on Poipu. Consistent quality seafood, excellent wait staff and airy atmosphere. Of the 8 nights on island, we dined at Roy's 1849 five nights. That good. Server Ashley was on top of things and knew exactly what we wanted as repeats. Chocolate souffle is out of this world. Can't recommend highly enough. Peefection.

    Beautiful setting. It has a very limited menu which does allow the kitchen to perfect what they offer. And they certainly do that. Presentation is simple and elegant without being stuffy. Service is very good. Drinks are amazing. I had the boys headlight in martini, and the flavors simply blended together beautifully.

    We go to Eating House annually for our last nights meal while on Kauai. Ever since they opened. Unfortunately this evenings meal was not typical. We were seated on time however we waited close to 10 min for any service and that’s the way service continued throughout the evening. I ordered my usual ramen bowl which was good as usual as was my sons butterfish however, we had to send my mother-in-laws beef ribs back as they were Luke warm at best. When they returned she said they were not much better and she left it at that only finishing half of her meal. Desserts were great as usual, soufflés, pineapple upside down cake, and apple pastry all delish. Total meal was over $300 but disappointing. Might need to try something different next year. 🙁

    Our server was good but had too many tables so the service was slow. Always loved Roy’s and 1849 at Princeville golf course location but this food was not up to par. Unfortunately our food was not hot, only warm and the short ribs were dry. Not enough fish dishes on the limited menu. Hope they can get it together! The drinks were great.

    We had an amazing view of the ocean while we dined on delicious BBQ pork rib appetizers and Homemade cocktail. Dinner was equally delicious -the burger with beef, wild boar and Portuguese sausage was tender and had great flavor. The butterfish was melt in your mouth heavenly. Our waiter was very attentive and friendly. They brought us a chocolate fudge cake on the house as it was our anniversary. Would definitely go back!!

    I am a huge fan of Roy Yamaguchi’s restaurants but, this was my first experience at Eating House 1849. As with his other menus, the choices were excellent and so tasty. Highly recommend starting with his signature martini with infused pineapple and vanilla. Richard, my waitperson was friendly and extremely efficient. I always judge service by how solo women are treated. Richard definitely met my standards. The only aspect which prevented a perfect experience was the hot setting sun glaring into the seating area. The sun shades could have been lower but the ocean view would have been lost . The noise level was uncomfortably loud but that is to be expected from large tourist groups all competing with each other for attention around the tables. That wasn’t the fault of Eating House.

    Would not recommend this place. It took over an hour after ordering to get our two dishes. We saw other people seated after us who got their food before we did. Our server never acknowledged the extremely long wait. We would have appreciated if they were upfront with us if they had staffing or time issues but we just sat there for over 90 minutes and all we ordered were two drinks, one appetizer and two mains. Not a way to spend our anniversary.

    Absolutely delicious meal! I had the butterfish and it was to die for. Highly recommend making a reservation and sitting by the window. Unfortunately we did not have that view, but the ambiance of the restaurant and our awesome server made the experience great. They even provided a free dessert in celebration of our honeymoon. Very sweet!
