Diner Reviews
  • "It has been a while since we visited Chaz on the Plaza, but we came back because we remembered the experience as being one of our best in a restaurant. They did not disappoint! Food, service, atmosphere - everything was perfect! We ate there on a Sunday night and they had a string duo playing beautifully and quietly in the bar area and it made the whole atmosphere even more inviting. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion or just for a very fine meal!"

  • "Had a great dinner with superb food - fried oyster appetizer, sea bass entree and split two desserts - every morsel was amazing. Incredibly attentive and friendly service from Joshua was equally perfect."

  • "We enjoyed our overall experience. The wait staff was excellent, food was delicious, and atmosphere was exceptional."

  • "Service and atmosphere was superb. Nice wine list also with good selection of wines by the glass. My dining partner had sea bass which was excellent. I ordered veal oscar which was good but the meat really seemed more like aged beef than veal. Escargot appetizer was disappointing as there was only minimal escargot served mixed with a medley of vegetables and mushrooms. Overall, the food and the experience were very good. Certainly a nice classy place for that special dining evening. Quaint bar which we didn't sit in but would enjoy. Live jazz music added to the experience and was a pleasant surprise on a Tuesday evening."

  • "wonderful menu. the food was great. Besides the usual sour dough bread (which was warm) offering. We also had brioche and a cheese lavash included in the bread basket. We basically made our meal of 3 appetizers and split an entree. Very attentive wait staff. We had the option of eatting on the patio but so enjoyed the jazz group playing inside. The highlight of our Kansas City Weekend."

  • "Everything was perfect, service, food, wine & music. Without disturbing tables a little space near the band for dancing would have made the evening brilliantly perfect."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "I would not recommend this restaurant. The service was very poor and the food was fair. We told the hostess it was our wedding anniversary several times and the waiter forgot all about it, making our experience not very enjoyable. We spoke about the crab cakes we had earlier stating that they were very dry and not very good, nothing was done only apologies. The waiter would ask how our food was and before we could answer he would turn and walk away. If you do not want to know the answer don't ask the question."

  • "Arrived a little early to enjoy the Jazz Trio playing that night. Free Valet Parking was excellent. Service in the bar by Unysess was outstanding. Doug our server was there when needed and gave great tips on the menu. Our food was prepared exactly as requested and was excellent. We had a great table with an excellent view of the Plaza and the entertaiemt. Prices were as expected. I've been to Chaz three times now and have never been disappointed. It's a great place for music and dinner."

  • "Food was okay. Salad was very small. Potato croquette was tepid. The steak was very good, sea bass questionable. Pricey to say the least."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "WE both had the Po' boys with the homemade chips. The chips were wonderful and the sandwich was very good. The bread kind of overwhelmed the oysters but good taste. The creme brulee was excellent. Restaurant only had a couple of other people sitting at the bar so we had it all to ourselves."

  • "First time we've been there for dinner with their Atlanta transplant chef. Never thought I'd like grits nor did my wife, but the shrimp with grits appetizer was delightful and my Sea Bass entree was perfect. Liked the grits so much we tried a brunch item with eggs and spinach the following morning and were equally impressed."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "What a delight! We don't often go for the whole appetizer-to-desert experience but the hits on both wallet and waistline were well worth it! The she-crab soup was not like anything I had in Charleston (where I spent nearly 20 years) but it stands on its own against their best. I had the grilled Caesar salad. Only a transplanted southern boy can appreciate fried salad! and I especially appreciated the added anchovies. ! My wife had the Chaz salad, which was lovely. We opted for "named" mains - I the Steak Diane and she the Veal Oscar. We both like rare meat and both were done perfectly, the sauces and accompaniments excellent. Finished with the vanilla crème brûlée, which was - wait for it - perfect."

  • "I reserved a table to celebrate my girlfriend's birthday. It was our first time eating at Chaz, and the food was excellent. The best part about the whole experience, though, was the hostess knew it was a special occasion and placed us in an area where we could see the musicians play as well as a beautiful view outside. It made the experience that much better. Thank you!"

  • "Our group of 7 had a fabulous time at Chaz! Our table was waiting for us when we arrived. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgable. We all loved our meals. The Beef Tenderloin was delicious, as was the She Crab soup."

  • "We went to Chaz on the Plaza to celebrate our anniversary. We have a wonderful meal and wonderful wine recommended by our waiter. We had requested a table by the window overlooking the Plaza and they accommodated us. Good wine, Great service and nice view."

  • "Way too salty on the scallops. other dishes at our table were great - short ribs and Chilean sea bass really good."

  • "We've never had a bad meal. Always a great experience."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "Every single bite was absolutely delicious! Service was excellent!"
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Better than average food with an emphasis on steaks -- but at a surprisingly high price. My lamb chops were excellent, but the fatty crust accounted for half the chops' weight! At an a la carte price of $41, I figured each bite cost me $8.00. The wine list is extensive, but again, pricey. Many selections by the glass, which are excellent, are priced north of $15.00. Hey, I'm from New York, so I'm not especially price sensitive when it comes to dining out. But for KC, these guys are pushing it..."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Food heavily salted beyond acceptable. Sides can use creative and basic culinary skills improvement"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "We really enjoyed going back to where we got engaged one year ago, and having a nice dinner with great entertainment. The KC Strip steak had a lot of fat in it and wasn't as good as steak we have had elsewhere, but everything else was excellent. The service was pleasant and attentive as usual."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "We had a lovely time for our first wedding anniversary. They gave us a complemantary glass of champagne. The waiter was very attentive yet he gave us space and let us enjoy our evening. The food was some of the best I have had in KC. The Chilean Sea Bass was perfectly crusted and melted in my mouth. My husband really enjoyed the Prime Rib. Overall a very enjoyable experience."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "We had a post wedding get together for 16 people following our daughters wedding. The service was EXCELLENT! Our server was very friendly, fast and accurate. I have NEVER been part of a large group and had all of our food be served at the same time, much less have it served in a short amount of time. That is until our Chaz brunch!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "The Chaz is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is absolutely amazing and is the best thing about it. Two of our favorite meals are the beef tenderloin and the veal oscar. We also enjoy the musical entertainment that The Chaz offers. We've only eaten here for dinner, but really want to try brunch sometime."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Nice place, quaint and quiet. However, my very expensive steak was awful. The meat was very fatty with a lot of gristle. I probably should have sent it back to the kitchen. When I told our server (who was very good) he said that after talking to the manager, dessert was on the house. (The dessert was mediocre) We had never eaten at this restaurant and will not go back."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "Food was good, I had the scallops, but for me it was a bit too salty and it overpowered the entire dish. we like coming to this restaurant, but this particular evening, service was slow, and they weren't that busy, we waited quite some time for server to come and get our drink order, food order, ect. But, I recommend this restaurant, it's fun, they usually have a little jazz combo playing most nights, food has been consistent, but if you are watching your salt, you might ask for them to hold the salt, I know next time I dine at Chaz, I will."
    Dined on 6/18/2014
  • "My husband and I have been dining at Chaz on special occasions for several years and thoroughly enjoy it every time. The food, the service, the ambience...it's all worth the price. My husband thinks the steaks are the best he's ever eaten and the sea bass I had last time was truly amazing."

  • "We took advantage to the Sunday night special - room was $169 but all food that evening and breakfast the next morning was deducted up to the $169. Does not include tax and grat. Food was awesome!"

  • "Excellent cuisine with attentive service, mixed with beautiful views of the plaza reminded my wife and I of a quaint New York City restaurant from when we used to live there."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "We had a wonderful dinner at Chaz. Some of the dishes were very original and delicious. One of us had the escargot, which was presented with a warm brown sauce that was wonderful. The beef carpaccio was also delightful, as were our entrees and dessert. We had an excellent wine that was a 1000% Merlot from the makers of Silver Oak-a great find! We loved our server-he was very knowledgeable and entertaining! He also suggested a very unusual bourbon-based cocktail that smoked-it was great!"

  • "We celebrated our anniversary at Chaz. Everything was very enjoyable. The food was delicious, down to the sample of she-crab soup. We had some great wine and outstanding service. I had a filet and my companion had the veal and they were excellent. There is valet parking, which is great. Live entertainment in the bar could be heard, but it was a moderate level and added to the experience. Our service was impeccable. We really enjoyed it."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Chaz is the restaurant other establishments aspire to be! From the warm friendly staff to the coffee served at the end of the meal, excellence abounds! Fresh innovative food- creative cocktails. No detail is left unattended to! Portions are ample and leave you satisfied but never heavy or stuffed, and no salt and pepper at the table because it isn't needed. That should tell you something right there. Pricey, yes but worth every penny! We have eaten here several times and always have been extremely pleased with everything when we are here! The Raphael is truly a gorgeous hotel, and we will always recommend them and Chaz for anyone traveling to K.C.!"
