This hidden jewel is becoming better known. And no wonder! The food is great and the presentation is exceptional. Culinary students at the U of HI, Maui campus put it on!

Class Act is the fine dining restaurant run as part of the Maui Culinary Institute at Maui College of the University of Hawaii. The food is right up there with the best we've ever had. Today we had a very nice amuse bouche, excellent cornbread (with rosemary and butter), corn and goat cheese tamale, black bean soup and caesar salad,... More

If you like fine dining food but don't like fine dining prices you would love the Class Act located in Maui community college. The interior decor is beautiful and looks like a real fine dining restaurant. The wait staff were professional. We love all the dishes they served and the fresh baked bread was delicious. The local ingredients were fresh... More

If you are a foodie, a must try restaurant is the Class Act, located in the heart of Kahului on Maui College Campus at the Maui Culinary Academy. You will need to make reservations and you only get a chance to sample this fabulous food on Wednesdays and Fridays during lunch when the college is in session. The 5 course... More

One of the best kept dining secrets on Maui is located at the University of Hawaii - Maui College. The chefs and wait staff are all students in Restaurant Management and if our experience is indicative of what the future holds for future Iron Chefs and new and exciting restaurants it is in great hands. All 4 courses, from appetizer,... More

I was so glad to be able to enjoy this experience with my friend from Lahaina, and my daughter. We were there for the French menu. I booked on Open Table, well in advance. It was not easy though! I had to keep trying, and make a phone call as well. It's a popular place for lunch, and because they... More

As soon as you book your plane ticket to Maui, you need to book a reservation at Lei's Family Class Act! It is entirely run by culinary students, who rotate through the different shifts so they have a full range of restaurant experiences. The service was exceptional. They were extremely accommodating of the baby we had with us and rearranged... More

This is one of the best restaurants I've ever eaten at - on a par with Michelin 2 and even 3-star restaurants. the food, service, and ambiance were outstanding. Too bad they are only open during terms at Maui College where the Maui Culinary Institute is housed and only for lunch on Wednesdays and Fridays even during those periods. When... More

We've been to a number of culinary arts programs, including the CIA in Napa and Kendall College in Chicago and this "Class Act", a part of the culinary arts program at UHMaui, rocks with those others. Only open for lunch and a tough reservation to get, it's fun to talk to the students and see what they are up to... More
