The Leis Family Class Act Restaurant is our student run fine dining restaurant at the University of Hawaii - Maui College. Students enrolled in the Maui Culinary Arts Program are your chefs and servers under the leadership of their instructors. We serve a 4-course prix fixe menu on Wednesdays and Fridays with reservations available from 11:00am - 12:30pm.

Our price for the complete (inclusive) 4-course meal ranges from $31 - $50 plus Hawaii state tax depending upon the entree selected. Gratuities can be accepted as cash only and are very much appreciated as the funds collected are utilized to offer and enhance additional learning experiences to the students working at the restaurant. The globally influenced menu changes weekly. Be sure to reserve early as we are often sold out weeks in advance.

Menus can be viewed by clicking the MENU tabs on this Open Table site. We look forward to serving you!

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!

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.
