Hawaii Regional Cuisine
The Eating House 1849 pays homage to Hawaii’s vibrant culinary heritage, a nod to restaurateurs like Peter Fernandez who, the story goes, opened one of the first restaurants in Hawaii, called the Eating House, back in the mid-1800s, using what was available from local farmers, ranchers, foragers and fishermen.

It’s here that award-winning Chef Roy Yamaguchi blends these two worlds: the easy ambiance and simple flavors of a plantation town with the dynamic modernity of haute cuisine.

Have been here many times with out of town business guests. Food is great as always, though the scallops didn’t agree with one person. Another diner in our group also ordered scallops and didn’t have an issue. Servers were very attentive, and there were many that kept checking in on us. Sometimes too many checked on us, resulting in conversations interrupted often, need a bit more coordination there. Our head waiter was excellent, very cheerful and accommodating. He was also nice enough to comp a dessert for our visiting guest.

Went to our late Valentine’s Day dinner. Going in without expectations and we were pleasantly surprised. Service and food was great. We also noticed the the employees and servers were on point. They were always doing something. They didn’t stand around, they kept busy. Our waters and drink glasses were always filled. We ordered the Miso Butterfish and braised pork and tasted wonderful!! Will be back to try the rest of their menu!!

Fun place with great food. Cocktails were creative and refreshing. Delicious appetizers: the poke was super fresh, pork belly bao buns just right, steamed clams tasty, and the Szechuan Ribs distinctive. Entrees equally appealing: Snapper was perfect, Salmon always solid, Braised Ribs were mouthwatering, Roy's classic melting hot chocolate lava souffle were a perfect night cap, and those who said they were full and did not want dessert ate the most! The service was friendly and attentive and the live music kept the evening upbeat. This is our go to spot for fun and a great meal.

The food was very average. The tomato paella tasted like the sauce had come out of a jar, and the fish was very bland. The steak was good - albeit very expensive. The "souffle" was not a souffle at all - it was a chocolate fondant. The service was fine - really it was the quality and value of the food that was disappointing.

We were a party of six and we all had a different entree. Every meal was superb, and everyone said they’d order the same thing. I had the “short” ribs and substituted onion rings for potatoes. The meat fell off the bone and the sauce was just right. Onion rings were phenomenal. Did the chocolate soufflé for desert and loved that as well. Really tasty cocktails too. Highly recommend Eating House

Second time here. Had prawns and risotto. It was tasty aside from the 15 pieces of rock hard tooth breaking pieces of risotto in it. Would have told the waiter but food runner dropped off food and server didn’t show until a while after we were done eating. Partner had short rib and it was good but a touch hard in places.
Average for the prices charged. No service however and place was not full. Won’t make a third visit.

We arrived 15 minutes prior to our reservation and we're seated 15 minutes after. Host staff, including manager, needs to be replaced with a team that knows good customer experience, especially in Hawaii. They didn't smile or seem friendly in the 30 minutes we waited and they interacted with others. However, our servers were very friendly and knowledgeable. It took 45 minutes for our 3 entrees to arrive and Ramen was barely warm. Food and drink quality and presentation was great, although expensive.

We enjoyed everything except our main dish took far too long to arrive. It would have been nice if a server informed us that our burger was going to be longer. They did mention at the end of our meal that they were going to surprise us because of the wait.

We love this place. It's very casual. Very kid-friendly. It's the best of all the dining options at
the Intl Market Place. Staff is very friendly. We loved our server. Good for tourist as well as
locals. We had the ribs, chopped salad, deep fried snapper and dessert was out of this world. Had the chocolate soufflé which is one of Roy's signature desserts. We were there on Dec 30th on a staycation.
