Went there for a late dinner on New Year's Eve. Always consistently good. Intimate atmosphere and interesting menu. Stable management and experienced servers with always entertaining live music. Won't be disappointed.

I talked about Chaz in my review of the Raphael. This is a quality, first class restaurant with a chef that has unique items on the menu along with traditional favorites. Our wait staff was fun, and professional and very knowledgeable about the menu and wines. Try the rack of lamb.

A beautiful, comfortable setting. Excellent service. Delicious food. A wonderful string duo providing lovely music. All this added up to perfect evening. The restaurant was full, but the noise level was fine. There are several little nooks and alcoves that would be fun to sit in. I look forward to returning to this restaurant!

Celebrated New Year's Eve at Chaz again this year. Meal was outstanding as usual, but the scallops seemed even better. Service matches the outstanding food. Manager David is the best. He makes sure every guest is happy! New Year's Eve entertainment was great with 2 groups playing throughout the night. Champaigne toast with hats and noisemakers ring in the new... More

I don't know if it is the romance of The Raphael, or if I was in a good mood...but as a foodie, I can definitely say that this was within the top 5 steaks I have EVER had.

While staying at the Raphael we checked out the nice club attached. The food was tremendous. The happy hour prices were not to bad either. We enjoyed a wonderful view of the plaza lights with some holiday cheer. We will definitely be back to enjoy this small KC gem again!

The food and service are excellent. Nice jazz music as well. Only one criticism--it is located in a sort of basement section of older building and for some of the tables it does seem a touch compact. But really a nice place.

We made reservations since we were staying at the hotel. The Raphael has a wonderful special that takes your dinner tab off of your room bill on Sunday nights. Since it was our anniversary they decorated the table with rose petals and brought us some champagne. It made me look (the husband) like I had planned all this out. They... More

We've stayed at the Raphael and dined here for breakfast before but never experienced the dinner menu. All four of us had the she crab soup and it was absolutely excellent. There is the tiniest hint of spice heat which lingers on the tongue. I wish they would sell a gallon for carryout! I decided to try the veal liver... More
