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.

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.
Overall we would most definitely go again.

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.

We enjoyed the restaurant, especially dessert - Chocolate Souffle. Our Seafood Paella was served without clams and we were provided a small plate of clams 15 minutes later. A second Seafood Paella order was perfect. We also had the King Salmon and Kampachi dishes and they were delicious with small portions. Calamari was also good.

The food at Eating House 1849 was excellent. It really brought back memories of the best in local comfort food. Our table shared the pork belly bao buns. Those just melted in your mouth. Oysters were fresh and went really well with ponzu and hot sauce. I had the misoyaki butterfish. It was so flavorful that I just ate small morsels of the fish at a time to savor the taste. Malasadas were really light with just the right amount of sweetness.

Service was really attentive and enthusiastic as well. Everyone smiled and looked happy to be there. And, of course, parking is really easy at the International Marketplace. Overall, just a wonderful experience. Definitely will come back.

We had reservations for a group of seven for an early Christmas Day lunch. Our waiter was very friendly and took our orders but we had to wait over an hour and twenty minutes for our meals to arrive. There seemed to be very little to no concern over the length of time it took to deliver our food. Other patrons who arrived well after our party were served and left before our meals arrived. We ordered dessert and waited almost a half hour before asking for our tab and then our dessert arrived. The kitchen was obviously understaffed but no explanation was given for the exceptionally slow service. We felt sorry for our waiter. Perhaps employees would have preferred to have the day off and some chose not to come in to work on Christmas day. Very disappointing.
