Loved this place! Great live Jazz, cozy ambiance. We had a client for dinner and while the music was enjoyable, it didn't make conversation difficult. The food however, was disappointing. I was anticipating a piece of beef that I've come to expect when visiting KC and it was far below those expectations. I've had steaks at Sizzler that were better.... More

Chaz on the Plaza has a great menu with really something for everyone. We made a reservation for a family dinner (including two 10 year olds and one 15 year old) and when I first walked in I was afraid we had made a mistake - but it was great. Our server was wonderful and making suggestions and substitutions to... More

I really enjoyed the menu. I had the sea bass, it was well prepared. The wine menu extensive, and the service there top flight. They had live music on the thursday night we attended.

Chaz hosted my fiancé's 30th birthday event this past weekend. The service was spectacular; we were treated like royalty. Our server Cecil was polite, professional, and always prompt returning with the next drink. The hospitality from David and the crew at Chaz was first class. I was very impressed that they even plated and served the birthday cake we brought... More

We love the fried green tomatoes, crab bisque and the wine selecti. The steaks are thick, juicy and delicious. We had the salmon on our last visit, and it is outstanding! The service is very good,too.

I've eaten here every time I've stayed at The Raphael. I've had dinner and brunch, as well as appetizers and night caps. It is a beautiful restaurant with spectacular service. I suggest the carpaccio and grilled Cesar to start. The steaks are amazing, and the Brie stuffed potato croquette superb. The wine and spirits pair nicely with the dishes. You... More

With light, live jazz playing in the background, we experienced a very nice Mother's Day brunch. I had Lobster Eggs Benedict with Caviar which were very tasty. The coffee was good and a spicy Bloody Mary made everything tie together perfectly. Our daughter ordered the Bananas Foster French Toast. This is possibly the best french toast I have ever tasted....

The food was creative and tasty, all of the staff were extremely friendly (loved our server Joshua xoxo), and we ended the evening with a night cap in the lounge with live music. If you go, make a reservation and ask for a table within earshot of the lounge so you may enjoy the ambiance to its fullest!
