I would still recommend this for a leisurely luncheon that is first class. While we noticed the prices were increased, we also heard two couples at another table discuss that Mama's Fish House might be a better choice for the money... Perhaps, Class Act should reconsider how they are pricing.... At any rate, you will have a wonderful meal in a nice setting... Providing you can get a reservation since they book fast and we only had one date to chose from... Good luck

Our student server was well trained, efficient and friendly (from Hungary). My beef short ribs had been cooked 24 hours and were the best ever in a flavorful sauce. The grand finale is always the dessert. A "secret" instructor at Leis teaches students to turn out an outstanding creation every time. Everything before it fills me up but I'd never decline dessert here.

We went on 9-25-19 and enjoyed the Moroccan menu. The new staff are well trained and the food was great. I noticed that there is now a separate charge for dessert...not a problem. Overall, the quality has been consistently great, which is significant considering that there are always new staff every year. Mark Malone is a very good head of the program and tries to satisfy the needs of all parties!

It was enjoyable to talk with students and watch as they are learning skills and a trade. It makes you realize how much work goes into good service and hopefully we are all more appreciative of wait staff in the future.

Three distinct and imagination courses were offered by a well-informed and gracious wair staff who were clearly proud of their cuisine. Outstanding chefs, staff and food made for a truly memorable occasion. We thoroughly enjoyed he Asian menu. The kampachi in parchment was a revelation. Thank you to all. Can't wait to return.

Instructors are working hard to fill in for trainees and won’t miss a thing. Whey are watching whole dinning room and not missing anything. Food were excellent from start to finish. Better dinning experience than some of the 5 star resort restaurants.

Unusual this time was a generous appetizer of roast duck served over twice mashed sweet potato...an amazing presentation and delicious. Shiela was our attentive waitress. Actually she is a ready now to be an asset to a local fine dining restaurant.

I realize that the setting is an ideal situation. People are there to enjoy, not be demanding, and support the program. Plus, we don't want to be mean to the students who are trying so hard. I know that the kids who were the wait help would prefer to be in the back, cooking, which is what they train for! It is great that they are learning how to serve the food and know what wait staff must go through to please the diners (who may be demanding and self-centered) while at the same time, not irritate the chefs. I think chefs have a right to demand that the wait help know what they are doing to present in the best way possible the art of the chefs and all of the line help. I will share what brings down the food for me: A person who serves me a pie with the wedge pointed away from me and I have to turn the pie around. The main course served with entree at the top of the plate so I have to turn the plate around. The handle of the coffee cup turned in so I have to turn the coffee cup around. Perky and insincere service. Big plus: notice if a person is left handed - serve the coffee on the person's left with the handle on the outside. I am not talking extra fine dining with a multitude of silverware and nuance. Just simple good service. There is such an art to good service that is not not forced or stressed. I am not saying the wait staff did this. Onthe contrary - it was all excellent. The food was outstanding. Perfect, actually. I think this is obvious by how difficult it is to get a reservation - it was my first experience and I wanted another date, to be honest. Duck. But rerservations were filled. I was still very happy for the food and service on the second selected date. You have a wonderful program. Keep doing what you are doing because it works.

The food used to melt in my mouth but not anymore. Actually this last meal was seafood and the sauce it was made in wasn’t real great tasting. My friend had the pumpkin bastilla and that was pretty good but the salad on the side had a horrible dressing on it. As for service - I definitely see a huge difference. The staff used to be quick and on the ball. Not so anymore both times this year the waitress/waiter couldn’t remember the menu and clearly stumbled over it all. Then I asked for a drink two times and the third time they finally brought it out and it was wrong. Also once we were seated I have a feeling that they forgot our table because every other table around us had been helped and we waited another good 10 minutes for someone to finally come around. They did apologize for it though. Finally one of the staff came over to our table to drop something off and sweat was just pouring off their forehead. I kinda found it pretty unappetizing. Hopefully this place improves by next year to what it once was...one of the best places to eat on this island.

The server was slow. The food not good at all too many sauces. They ran out of fish. The shrimp appetizer had one single shrimp. The soup had one little wonton. Everything was sooo salty. ! The beef was over cooked. The dessert was gross. Sugar coffee over shaved ice. We went home a little hungry and ate an hour later.

The first was Moroccan which had the best seafood, the second French had the lightest crepes I have ever tasted and finally the Italian lamb shanks were well made and presented beautifully. The desserts were to die for. The best lunch Maui.

They are booked u as soon as they go online. They have a 24 hour cancellation policy. Therefore, many people make numerous reservations then cancel as there is no charge if this is done before the 24 hour restriction. If there was a 72 hour cancellation policy there would be a better chance of being called on a waiting list and being able to go. There was at least 2 tables empty when I was there. I know several people that would have been there if those tables had not been prebooked. Last year I could not get a reservation at all. It is a great experience and I am happy I was able to make reservations this year. I look forward to my next reservation.
