My husband and I have visited Chaz for dinner twice in the past year or so, at Valentine's Day in 2014, and again during a double-date during Kansas City Restaurant Week 2015. Both meals were excellent and our experience was elegant and leisurely. We always enjoyed Executive Chef Charles d'Ablaing's menu when he was at the helm at Webster House,... More

A very nice dining experience. They add an interesting twist to many of their dishes - an egg on top on an excellent crab cake, goat cheese in a potato cake side dish, etc. Had a business dinner for 4 people earlier this week, booth we sat in gave us privacy, good acoustics - so we could hear each other...

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

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.
