Leis Family Class Act Restaurant
This was our second visitThis was our second visit to Leis and we enjoyed it thoroughly. Although we know staff is learning and not experienced, that is really not a problem for us because we know they are so committed to trying hard and doing a good job. We want them to have a good experience with us as happy customers, and we always show our appreciation.
Our only issue with this lovely dining room is that even with just four of us at the table, the acoustics (high ceiling?0 are such that it is rather hard to have a conversation. During our visit visit, our table was by a window, and we don't recall that much noise interference. But in the center of the room, even though other diners and staff are not noisy, we had to strain to listen to each other.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAn unexpected Maui treatThis is a cooking school with students doing the cooking, serving, and reception on the order of the CIA at Hyde Park, NY but with a Maui vibe. The food is excellent. The service is professional. The view spectacular overlooking Kahului Harbor, the West Maui Mountains, and the North Shore of Maui. The students are at times a bit nervous but very willing to please. Remember, these are the future chefs, bakers, and owners of your favorite eatery. Help them learn. Whether you are just vacationing or Kamaina this is an experience to enjoy.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways wonderful...time afterAlways wonderful...time after time!! Will return as soon as possible...4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBeen here several times andBeen here several times and really love it. Very creative food and well prepared. We are "foodies" and always enjoy whatever they prepare. The students are "learning" all aspects of service and are all polite, well spoken and "gently" supervised. Always enjoy it. Wish they were open evenings. Nice experience to see new and local products being used so creatively.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMaui GemI love this restaurant! I think it is a great way to train students and defray the costs of the program while providing a great dining experience for the community. I also like the BYOB policy. We had a very pleasant lunch.
Keep up the good work! Mahalo4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food ExperienceHad a great meal. Servers were all well trained and very friendly. They should be proud of what they have accomplished. Having a son who had four years of culinary training at Paul Smith's College, I know how hard these students work. We have told several groups about this great place to dine, and look forward to eating there next time we are on the island.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and atmosphere.Excellent food and atmosphere. Students need a little practice in memorizing the menu, but that will be overcome with experience.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis Culinary Academy restaurantThis Culinary Academy restaurant is superb. One of the best places on Maui for a truly gourmet lunch prepared and served by students who are more professional and enthusiastic than most of the restaurants on Maui!One of the few places on the island to sample authentic international cuisine.Extra dividend-it's BYOB so bring a good wine. Great overall value. Limited days so suggest checking website for hours and menu.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe overall best food, bestThe overall best food, best service and best prices on Maui.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMSome of the best food on MauiIt takes some effort to arrange for a reservation here but it is very worth it! They are available on Wed. & Fri. only and only during the school year and only for lunch. The menu varies from month to month and has different ethnic emphasis. The one thing that you can always count on is excellent food! Creative presentation and combinations. The view is over a beach & harbor area from the second floor. The service is by students in the culinary program at the college so is sometimes not totally professional but always eager to please and enthusiastic. A real plus for me is that you get to bring your own wine. They are happy to provide stemware and ice buckets and of course, open the wine for you.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMUpscaleFantastic view out onto the Bay. For being located on a college campus, I was duly impressed with the ambiance. Our server was some shy but made up for with sincerity. There is a fixed price and menu. They are only open limited days, hours and times of the school year. So you have to hit it just right. Worth the effort to fit it into your schedule.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the fine dining classThis is the fine dining class room for the culinary academy of the University of Hawaii Maui Campus.
