“Outstanding restaurant”
Reviewed April 16, 2013 via mobile

We had a lovely lunch here. While expensive, the good food, service, ambiance, and location justified it. Actually, for an up-scale location the prices were reasonable. It was a treat to be in a restaurant that was quiet enough you didn't have to raise your voice to have a conversation. We were seated by a window by the busy street and could not hear the traffic.
If you can't agree on dessert, get the sharing option which allows you to pick three from the list. We especially enjoyed the creme brûlée and apple tart.

“Lunch date with my daughter”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

My daughter and I had lunch yesterday at Chaz. We recently stayed at the Raphael but did not have time to try their restaurant. Since our stay at the hotel was top notch I had high hopes for our lunch. Parking was fine as well as the staff. The atmosphere was pleasant and very clean. But a restaurant must have really good food for me to give it a high review. We had the steak sandwich and a reuben sandwich. We didn't really like either one and had to spit out fat and gristle several times from each one. Yuck! The fries were good and so was the iced tea. I hope your dinners are better and assume from the good reviews here that they are. I don't think I will be back to fine out though.

“Awesome Dinner, including wine selection”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

My wife and I enjoyed another fabulous dinner at Chaz on the Plaza last weekend. Their wine selection, entertainment, food and service were outstanding. We enjoyed the dinner experience so much that we wanted to take time to write this review. By the way, the cost of dinner is only three $$$ because we enjoyed a great bottle of wine. The food and wine are very reasonable for the wonderful presentation.

“A New Favorite”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

Chaz has become one of our new favorite restaurants! The staff are all very knowledgeable and friendly, and the food is excellent (great for foodies). We always request the same table, and the tables all have their own unique qualities. My favorite dish is the Fillet, though I have it prepared Oscar style, while my husband enjoys the sea bass. We normally share the delicious fried green tomatoes and a grilled Caesar salad. The vallet parking for the Raphael Hotel is complimentary (gratuity), so we typically use it for the restaurant. It's nice to have a place in Kansas City where you can dress up to enjoy.
