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.

We had a very good time, the food was great, we had all appetizers, the hamachi was not a favorite though.. the waiter was fun energetic and prompt. We had one thing happen, which was not deliberately done by our bus boy and was dealt with graciously.. the overall experience was fabulous and I'd go back alot aaand recommend the Eating House to everyone

The quality of the rib eye and appetizers was way down compared to 10 months ago. The price is no longer justified by a long shot. The restaurant next door went out of business so one wonders if all the rooftop spots are struggling.

The food was really good for all 4 of us... 2 of us had the Monchong bake. My daughter had the top sirloin and my wife had the Ahi salad. All recommended... Live music was a nice touch and made the meal even more enjoyable. The service was a little delayed between drinks and meal order but the server apologized and the meal came quickly after the order was placed. Thank you.

The food is simply outstanding. Everyone enjoyed their meals - the paella, jindori chicken, pork chop and kale salad with garlic ahi. Each was perfectly seasoned and just delicious. Such a diverse menu and yet each one brought such flavor and deliciousness.

Took my mother-in-law for her birthday. Food and service were great. A little noisy but not too bad. One issue we had was there were large clumps of dust falling from the ceiling. Luckily they didn't fall on us or the food. Overall great restaurant.

We went on a Wednesday around 9:00p and it wasn’t crowded. The live musician was singing his last song for the night. Was seated promptly and ordered drinks. We had never eaten there so we asked the waitress what she recommended. We got the lamb shank and burger. Both dishes were excellent. Nice size portions too. We were too full to try any dessert. When we go back, we already have two other dishes picked out.

The food and drinks were quite good for the most part. I especially appreciated they had at least one healthy/tasty item on the kids menu that wasn’t just mac n cheese or chicken tenders. However, regarding service and noise level, I was a bit disappointed. The hostess seemed quite dismissive and was slow to arrange our table (even though we had made a reservation and the restaurant was not busy when we arrived). The live music, although pretty good, was way too loud and no one at our table of seven could hear each other. Finally, the server was passable, but he checked on us fairly intermittently and totally gave up on us once it was clear we were done ordering drinks and wouldn’t get desert.

I enjoyed taking out of town guests to Eating House 1849! The selection of fresh fish and the preparation were fantastic and gave our friends a nice flavor of Hawaii in a comfortable setting. Eating in Waikiki can often be a hassle for us locals, but the plentiful parking at the International Marketplace as well as the relaxing environment in the restaurant makes it all very pleasant. We went on a weekday, so it was not crowded and I don't know what it feels like on a busy Saturday.

Decent lumpia. Ramen bowl had peanut sauce that was much, much too salty. Cesar salad with ahi- salad ok, good ahi.
Located on third floor of International Market mall, covered open air venue nice enough, some noise from parking garage.
Sorry, won’t go back or recommend.

It was nice sitting on the patio with the tropical breeze listening to live music. I had ordered the paella. The server did tell me it wasn't the typical paella without the crunchy rice so i was expecting that. It was a very visually appealing dish. The rice was quite flavorful and good. I would say though that the dish is not a very good value. The seafood portion of the dish consisted of 4 small clams and 2 shrimp. You are basically paying for flavored rice. It was tasty but certainly now worth the price. I feel a bit deceived by the lack of seafood in the paella.

Enjoyed our experience at Eating House. I’m vegetarian so I was very pleased they could accommodate me. I could eat one of their main entrees substituting tofu for fish and it was fabulous! Just be sure to let them know of any diet restrictions when you make your reservation.

Wanted to introduce my customers to Eating House ... they are here from Belmont Shores California
They left impressed and vowed to return.
I always use Open Table to book... they had my favorite table ready and of course all the staff is amazing, friendly and very accommodating.
We started off with drinks and soon followed up by and amazing appetizer via our most loved Diva.
They each enjoyed the amazing burger cooked to perfection
I had the amazing Ramen and Tempura.
Such and amazing place to bring new customers and friends for a treat that never disappoints.

Meh...

The restaurant is in a mall and the setting is very bland. We tried a variety of apps. The smoked ribs were really good. Otherwise the lumpia was meh. The ramen was flavorless.
