Mark Malone is outstanding. He oversees all the customers needs.
Food is creative.
Students are well trained.
Sooooo wonderful! Absolutely everything! Fantastic!!!
Excellent food and service!
Wow! What a great experience. The restaurant in run by college students learning the restaurant/cooking trade. I enjoyed myself the entire time. The service was great. The food was delicious. I will definitely be returning. This is not someplace you would go for a quick lunch. It took about 1.5 hrs. It is a 4 course meal. I highly recommend it!
Not only do you support the local college but you get to experience an amazing meal with impeccable service. The students are eager to please. We go back whenever we have the opportunity.
The serving students were all super friendly and in good moods. The food was absolutely fabulous! Unbelievable what a great offer this is!
the students here do a fantastic job. we met some of the faculty who are very dedicated to quality. the food was delicious and beautifully presented. a wonderful experience that we would do again when we return to Maui.
Hawaii's premier cooking school. Exceptional experience, not to be missed.
Wonderful dining experience provided by students and faculty. All courses were excellent.
Fabulous, amazing meal. Exceptional service. Cannot say enough great things about my dining experience here. Going back again soon
Ambiance, friendly staff
This dining spot is only available during the fall and spring semesters at Maui College. Patrons support the colleges culinary arts program. Reservations can be tricky to get but the food and service make it well worth the effort.
An amazing evening! The students and instructors were just wonderful and they really put on a wonderful special event.
Love the food prepared by the UHMC students. Great atmosphere and everyone was very friendly!
Excellent food with lovely presentation...every time!
Another fabulous lunch and really wonderful students!
Another fabulous lunch! Looking forward to going again soon.
Can't say enough good things about the experience. Food and service were all outstanding. The cost of this gormet, 4 course meal was $42-- an incredible bargain, particularly by Maui standards. We'll definitely return again to the Maui Culinary Institute.
Excellent service and outstanding presentation and food quality
This was our 15 th lunch at the restaurant. We love being served by new and up and coming new
waiters. The theme food makes the experience great for us. We love the Italian, Asian and French food the best. The meat is very fresh and flavorful. The deserts are great. We like the different soups as well. Overall a great experience that we enjoy, and next to Mama's Fish House this is our favorite restaurant.
The enthusiasm of the servers was contagious.
As usual exceptional food and presentatiom.
All staff attentive and friendly
We truly enjoyed the wonderful food - Italian Theme. The students came up with some creative ideas, which very possibly will not be had at any other restaurant! The Open-Face Lamb Shank & Spinach Ravioli, Point Reyes Blue Cheese Cream & Local Tomato Coulis was spectacular and served in a unique way. The Barolo Braised Short Ribs, Creamy Polenta, & Gremolata was very good. Our server, Tiff, was very sweet, and we wish her the best in starting her own bakery on Maui. It is a wonderful experience - one we wouldn't have associated with a trip to the islands of Hawaii, but one we hope to do more often. The only problem is the difficulty of getting a seating. There are few available, and they are filled almost immediately! We are looking forward to our next visit for the French-themed meal. I'm sure that Mark and his team will provide another sensational meal!
We had the Chef's Tasting Menu which was superb.
As always exceptional and our server Kat very good and friendly.
This is justifiably considered one of the best restaurants in Hawaii if not the country. Reservations are hard to get but you can also get on the waiting list. The students of the Maui Culinary Institute at Maui College do everything. The food, service and presentation are all first rate. We go whenever we're on Maui.
Outstanding lunch once again at Leis Family Class Act. The American menu was excellent and everyone in our group of eight enjoyed themselves. Will definitely go back soon.
Consistently the best food in Maui. I highly recommend having a very special lunch here.
Grand Finale Dinner was an extravaganza "Holiday in Paris". Every detail from the ice sculpture, napkins, and Eiffel Tower ornaments on a Christmas tree were exquisite and opulent. Wine pairing with a 6 course French menu was balanced and genius. Special kudos to Mark Malone and Chef Tom Lelli for orchestrating such an ambitious dinner!
Been here many times. This was on the bottom of the scale. The food was not creative nor well executed. Four of us had filets. Two cooked perfectly and the other two were almost raw when the diners had ordered them medium well. Took another 20 minutes to get the steaks back. It turned out to be a two hour and 15 minute lunch, which was just too long. Dessert choice was unimaginative. Neither was good. Overall, a disappointing experience
I have eaten at this restaurant several times and find it extraordinary.
This is a culinary school dining experience that is available on Wednesday and Friday during the school year at University of Hawaii, Maui. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. Students do the entire work with seating customers, taking orders, serving and clearing. If one chooses to bring wine, it will be opened and served with lunch. Next time I will do that. They have changing menus French, Thai, Asian. We had the French menu but will look forward to trying other menus.
It is the best restaurant on Maui. Always have a great time. Menu items are very creative. Food is attractively presented and delicious. Wait staff are attentive. Great overall experience.
Excellent food and service. All dishes were perfect. Only slight complaint was that the crepe was not hot.
Great restaurant with student cooks and servers learning the restaurant business. Outstanding food and service. Charming.
This restaurant is such a gem - I am always so impressed by service and innovative cuisine!
If you are visiting or live on Maui we strongly recommend having lunch here.
The menu is creative and the wait staff provides amazing service.
The only downside is they are only open on Wednesday and Friday's for lunch.
Wonderful celebrating a BD there..Mark did an awesome job along with the students in making it a super special time...awesome food in every course.
Excellent food with outstanding service. Great dining experience.
A most delightful experience ! We were served an Italian feast by very earnest students in a gorgeous dining room accompanied by wine we brought to accompany the lunch . The short rib atop cheese infused polenta, was a standout of beautifully braised meat and deliciously warm foccasia . Can't wait to return on our next trip to Maui !
