Great Happy Hour appetizers

This was my first time at Chaz at Raphael after living how many years in KC???? Their happy hour menu on food is 1/2 off. Drinks they offered 3-4 at 25% off. We tried several of the appetizers between four people, (so very cost effective and tasty): Fried Green Tomatoes (covered in bread crumbs... read more

A friend and I went to Chaz for Happy Hour on a Monday in July. One reason we went was to hear the music - Max Groove - which we enjoyed a lot. The music was excellent and not over-powering in the setting; patrons could also have conversations while the instrumental music filled the background. The appetizers are half-price during... More

Very good service and food! I tried a nice dip of artichoke, a very very good filet (medium rare) and the apple pie!

This may be my new "go to" place on the Plaza. I'm a little reluctant to share it because it's not a big place and I'd hate to wait to get in here. Our friends recommended we meet there and I've always like the Raphael Hotel, but never been in Chaz. Upon entering it's a low key place, maybe would... More

Had a great night at Chaz for our anniversary. The food was wonderful, particularly the Creme brûlée for dessert, and the service excellent. Josh showed just the right amount of attention and his enthusiasm for our anniversary was endearing. Thanks for a great night!

Excellent ambiance and good food. Ate there on a Sunday night. The staff was excellent and very accommodating. Service was excellent. We shared she-crab soup.and a KC Strip.

First off, my wife and I had our anniversary dinner at the Chaz. Everything was exactly as you would imagine from an upscale restaurant. The service was impeccable. The wine was amazing. However, the food was something to remember for a long time. For dinner on friday night, we ordered the shrimp and grits to start out with. It went... More

This was our first time eating here. Nice ambiance and decor. The complimentary valet parking was very convenient. We both had the Lobster Benedict which was amazing! Fried Green tomatoes took the place of the English Muffin for a little southern twist. Both the lobster and poached eggs were cooked perfectly. I highly recommend this dish.
