Great KC strip steak

Delicious KC strip steak from a selected herd of cattle. Outstanding appetizers - try the shrimp and grits and the fried green tomatoes. Wonderful service - reasonable prices.

Based on a recommendation, I chose this restaurant and was thrilled with the overall experience. From the service to the wine and menu options, I was not disappointed. I truly enjoyed the live music, too. Such a nice and elegant touch. Choose this place for a great alternative to the larger Plaza scene!

A stunning restaurant in the Chinoiserie style, this is a busy place morning to night. As it was breakfast, I ordered the Smoked Salmon Benedict - Wilted Spinach, Caramelized Onions, Butter Toasted English Muffin, Boursin Cheese, Hollandaise, Fresh Berries. It was heavenly. The service was efficient and professional. I highly recommend this restaurant in KCMO.

Included in our Sunday night at the beautiful Raphael Hotel were dinner and breakfast at Chaz.

This has the feel of a New York club below street level: cozy, warm, and wonderful live music. When music is playing on the green outside, they cater to the outside tables at the front of the hotel.

My husband and I have visited Chaz for dinner twice in the past year or so, at Valentine's Day in 2014, and again during a double-date during Kansas City Restaurant Week 2015. Both meals were excellent and our experience was elegant and leisurely. We always enjoyed Executive Chef Charles d'Ablaing's menu when he was at the helm at Webster House,... More

A very nice dining experience.

We had the brunch two mornings in a row, it was great. Fresh orange juice and the most friendly staff. Pancakes were under the Lite Fare, not sure why they were, but my oh my, they were tasty.
