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.

Overall was very good except they substituted a ribeye for the advertised 22 oz Porterhouse. Would have preferred they told me that in advance I would have ordered something else.

For the prices they charge, portion size was disappointing, quality was so so, should teach the broiler cook how to cook steaks. Ordered it mr, got it med to mw....did not want to send it back , it would have been too long a wait.

This is the first time we tried this restaurant. We have eaten at many of Roy’s restaurants and always found them to be great. The evening started out well, but went downhill.
The server was attentive at first, but after we ordered she was clearly preoccupied with others including e loud young man drinking shots at a table near us.
When I ordered, I specifically asked that my wine be brought with my meal. Well that did not happen. My meal was delivered, it looked like it had sat awhile under the heat lamps. I asked for my wine fro the person who dropped it off and he disappeared. Then about 5 minutes later someone came to ask me how my meal was and I said fine (despite being under a lamp, the meat was cooked to my preference so no need to be fussy) but I would really like the wine I ordered with my meal. This gentleman disappeared. Then five minutes later a bus boy arrived to fill up our water and I asked him for my wine. He apologized and said he would look for my server. He server came by and ask if everything was alright and I said NO, I am still waiting for the wine I ordered with my meal. It then took her another 5 minutes to get my wine, by this time I had consumed most of my meal. She clearly knew I was annoyed as she then became less friendly and avoiding us. I got an apology from the person who originally checked on my meal, but no offer to make me feel better. I was a server when I was young and I would have had the wine written off at a minimum or offered a dessert. That did not happen and I will never forget the poor service. I will never return to the restaurant and I cancelled my plans to eat at there other restaurant in Kauai.

Food was great. Different from Roy’s as Eating House seems more casual setting. But food is still excellent. And service was on point. Would have liked to sample all the dishes!

We were a party of 4 who were trying Eating House for the first time. We started with an order of pork belly bao buns primarily because none of us had tried them before. They were excellent and are highly recommended. We tried a variety of mains - misoyaki butterfish, paella, a fillet from the separate steak menu, and because one of our party was vegan, an order of brussels and cauliflower. Each of the dishes was highly praised by the one who ordered it. For our vegan member, the restaurant ensured that her dish met her needs. Would we go back again? Emphatically "yes". In fact, my wife and I went back two nights later to try the Kiawe smoked Szechuan baby back ribs - another excellent selection. The restaurant has decent ambiance (it's not on the beach nor in an upscale hotel). The wine list is not overly extensive but more than adequate. If your looking for a place for a very pleasant dinner with great food and a wonderful staff, Eating House 1849 is the place.

I have generally always been happy at Eating House however at lunch the other day, there was only one manager-type person waiting on the entire patio area with a larger complement of bus staff. The order taking took a while and the food took even longer to come out. The staff was cordial and the food was excellent, but there is so much more to do to improve the great meal.

Food quality good, but service needs to improve: took 40 minutes to serve 6 people, one of the dishes came different from the menu (Loko Moko: instead of Fried Rice, it came with normal white Rice).

Unfortunately, the ribs that we ordered was not well cooked and thus taste was bland compared to previous experience.

Not enough waiter compared to number of bus boys. Had to look around for waiter to place extra order and also to get your tab.

The food was okay, nothing exceptional. There was live entertainment but it was too loud for the venue making it difficult for the four of us to talk in a normal tone of voice and hear each other. The best part of the experience was the exceptional wait staff - 6 stars for them!

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.
