Shrimp and grits are fabulous, crab cakes are delicious, service is very good. My husband has the Veal Oscar on this visit and it was very good and perfectly cooked. I had the salmon which was over-cooked and didn't have enough sauce. I would not order the salmon again but have had other fish dishes here in the past which... More

I have never been to Chaz on the Plaza. However, some friends took me there for my birthday. The restaurant is located in the elegant old Raphael Hotel and it has a pleasant ambience. The noise level is low and it's therefore possible to have a conversation which is not the case in many of the Plaza restaurants. My main... More

...can sometimes be a problem. Over attentive staff or the exact opposite, a complete disregard and one spends hours gazing into space while waiting for something to happen. Not here. Delightful - truly thoughtful and considerate waiting staff - an interesting menu that allowed for dietary querks, beautifully cooked and stylishly presented. I was so absorbed in my book that...

We were guests of the hotel and came down to Chaz 4 times during our stay. Each night they have live music, the musicians were great and varied each night. The scene is a mix of middle aged locals who come for the music and business and leisure travelers. The wine list was great and they have a good selection... More

From NYC, and though I had the best restaurants there. Not till we stayed in The Raphael Hotel. Service and food was the best ever. Professional, accommodating, and wonderful dishes. Competing with my favorite, Peli Peli in Houston TX.
