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

The ambiance, wait staff, and all were everything one would expect from an upscale restaurant. My wife had the open ravioli and loved it. I had the grilled salmon, and it was cooked perfectly. The next morning we had the in-room breakfast, and the taste and presentation were perfect.

Josh, our waiter, recommended the Sea Bass, I'm still thinking about it! We had a large party but that didn't seem to be a problem for the wait staff nor the kitchen. Excellent service and food.

We came to the Plaza again to see the lights and stay at the Raphael. Last time we got a free breakfast and tonight we got $1 off our room for every dollar spent in the restaurant. Wow! Great meal. We all ordered something different. The veal oscar was incredible, especially when paired with a succulent lobster tail. The beef... More

The food was fantastic. The service was slow. But the food made up for it. We had the prime rib. In a place famous for its beef, this did not disappoint. The restaurant was also very beautiful and elegant for Kansas City. The chef came out to talk to us. A very nice guy. I would go back to try... More

My family and I dined at Chaz on Thanksgiving Night - the night of the "lighting" in the Plaza area. I am not from the area and called months in advance for reservations, hoping for a very special event for my adult children who we were meeting us for the holiday. What a disappointment! First, no one explained to us... More

First let me say that my cut of beef was excellent. Incredible even. And I was with a group, so I know that personal attention cannot be given. That said, I felt like I was served excellent food in a less than excellent fashion.
