“Great place to celebrate our 25th anniversary!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014 via mobile

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!

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Went to Chaz for diner and it was horrible. The menu was so nasty.special anniversary menu was special,looked like a bunch of left overs.We settled for a couple of burgers off the bar menu.even those,they could not get right.Came out burnt and the bun was hard.The other on was the size of a half dollar.Drinks are very pricey for no entertainment We did not learn,we came back for Breakfast Breakfast was NASTY eggs looked they were old,chicken fried steak was the worst I have ever had. Coating fell off the black piece of meat inside.threw all of it away.It was full of grease and the biscuits were hard.Told the waitress and she laughed about using them for a hammer..Should have not paid for it.The steak and eggs were even worst. Medium well came out dripping blood and the over easy eggs were hard.GO ELSEWHERE

“A touch of Manhattan, NY in Kansas City”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

My wife and I have eaten at Chaz many times and have always had an excellent experience: Superb food, great service and a cozy and relaxed atmosphere. It is our go to place for special occasions. Ask for a table near the Ward Parkway side of the dining room. You will have a view of the Plaza and be close to the combo....KC has great music including Jazz.
Have been there on personal and business occasions including lunch. Lunch fare is also excellent. Steak, fish, shrimp and grits, lovely soups and wonderful deserts. One of our favorites anywhere in the world. Excellent wine card also. Bartender makes a wonderful Negroni...as good as we had in Sienna and Rome.
