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.

As a local, we hardly eat in Waikiki...but our friend from Seattle wanted to sample local foods. Everything was great...the food was really delicious, although we were disappointed in the small poi (was very grainy) served with the pipikaula...didn't actually represent a good sample of poi. Other than that small item, all the dishes we ate were very good. Serve was excellent, even when we had sort of outstayed our welcome. We were there from 5 - 7:30pm, still the servers were very hospitable. Will definitely recommend this restaurant to friends and family...Good job to all...!!!

The ambiance was the perfect outdoor, after work setting. The vibe was chill and relaxing and the service was excellent - professional and friendly. We were unexpectedly treated to live music that evening and the singer was fantastic! Thank you for a great experience! We will definitely be back and tell friends to go to Eating House!

The small plates recommended by the server were good choices: ribs, wings and calmari. He also recommended the burger and the grilled cheese. We chose otherwise, since we were in a seafood mood. The donburi with salmon and pork belly were deemed “okay” by my wife; however, the donburi included a few tasty morsels of veggies (pickled red cabbage, lentils, mushroom and others) lining the periphery of the bowl, which made the dish more interesting and tasty for me after I’d scarfed the down the delicious and crispy grilled salmon.

ロイヤマグチのお店ということで来店。ロイズの料理は何度か食べているので期待。調理場がガラス張りで見えるとなっていますが 手元は見えません。今流行りなんですね。メニューがきましたが少ない。ロイズの方がメニュー豊富。それほど空腹ではなかったのでポークリブとアヒサラダ フライドカラマリをオーダー。前菜扱いのポークリブですが5本ありボリューミー。柔らかく美味しい。フライドカラマリはハラペーニョがアクセント。ビールに合います。
アヒサラダは野菜がケールを使ってあり苦いかなと思いましたが優しい苦味です。ハワイのマグロは冷凍物でないのでねっとりして美味しいですね。隣席の子供連れ家族は昼間のロコモコやハンバーガーを食べたいと言っていましたが夜は無く夜は子供向きのメニューではないですね。次回はメニュー豊富なロイズに再来しようと思いました。

Food took a very long time to come out. Pork hash was so tough to eat. So dense that I thought I was gonna choke on it. It was awful. Also make sure to ask about all the ingredients on food items. We ordered a bacon avocado salad and only 3 ingredients were listed however it came with all sorts of items including feta cheese. If i would if known I would of asked for it to be left off. We enjoyed it when this place first opened and feel like it has just gone downhill over the years.

Enjoyed the dinner - the family style dishes were great to share with a large group. Porterhouse steak was very good, as were the scallops. Wish the portions were a little larger for the prices we paid, but overall it was a good place to dine with friends visiting from out of town.

Service was well intended but very slow - we had reservations and waited 15 minutes to be seated. After being seated, we waited 10 minutes for a server to welcome us and take our order. We then waited 20 minutes to get our drinks (our appetizers arrived before our drinks), and then we waited 15 minutes from when our appetizers were cleared before our entrees arrived. Plus, they forgot to bring the kids’ appetizers, so they waited almost 30 minutes from the time we ordered to
food. The waiter camp’s is our drinks, but it was a long night. Perhaps they were short staffed because it was New Year’s Day.

We went to have lunch on a rainy Christmas Day. Menu selections are limited. Open air seating is not the best thing to have on a rainy, windy day, either. Our table was right on the edge of the restaurant so luckily the wind was blowing away from us. If it wasn’t, we would have gotten a little damp. I ordered the hoi sin rib appetizer. Tender but wow, heavy on the hoi sin sauce, making it much too sweet for me. Hubby had the pork belly donburi. We were surprised that it was just an egg easy over on a bed of rice with three or four pieces of pork belly on the side. It was tasty but not what we were expecting. Service was good.

No bread here. If you ask, you get a tiny bun for $0.50. You get edamame. Not enough for a hungry person waiting for food. Fish is two small pieces. Nothing special about paella and wrong type of rice, mushy.

The Steak, Whole Snapper fish, Noodles with Prawns and Calamari was delicious! but I don't think the "chicken adobo" has the right taste of so called "ADOBO" sorry Chef!

We enjoyed a delightful early evening (5:00pm) Thanksgiving dinner at the Eating House. Kimmie A. was our charming waitress. She carefully explained dish preparations and was patient with us as we selected from the regular and the holiday menus. Bryson was her efficient assistant, and he never let my coffee cup run dry! I chose the turkey dinner, starting with the corn chowder and finishing with a nice sweet potato creation for dessert. My wife opted for the pipikalau as an appetizer and butterfish over risotto for her entrée. We were both thrilled with our choices. A guitarist set up and performed quietly as we were leaving. The location on the third level of the International Marketplace is convenient for both vehicle and pedestrian approach. We loved the Polynesian entertainment outside in the atrium afterward, which was simple a coincidental happenstance for us.he Eating House is highly recommended for both cuisine and service!!
