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.

We love to go to Chaz for the quaint small bar atmosphere and Jazz. We love the band "British Invasion". They are fun! The only negative is that it gets crowded very quickly.

We went for Saturday brunch. It was very quiet. I had lobster benedict which was well prepared but I felt you lose the lobster taste as presented and I probably wouldn't have it again. We each had a specialty brunch cocktail which were a bit pricey but tasty and potent. The service was very congenial and with just the right... More

Our dinner at Chaz was charming from the moment we walked in front of the restaurant. Beautiful lighting and outdoor fire pits line the Hotel Raphael walkway as you enter Chaz on the Plaza. The hostess greeted us very warmly and seated us early for our reservation. The service was above and beyond in every aspect. Our waiter and assistants... More

I had the best experience at this restaurant. The food was delectable and service was great! I recommend the She Crab Soup, Grilled Caesar salad, Diver Caught scallops & Sour Cream fried chicken. Price per entree is between $25-$41.

Rarely am I impressed with the service, but our waiter was a true professional. It was like being in a movie. And the food... WOW. We had the Calamari and it was served in the middle of a salad. I thought it looked odd but was a perfect blend that was delicious. Don't fight the traffic, stay at the hotel... More
