Diner Reviews
  • "We enjoyed our brunch at Chaz on the Plaza so much that we are planning to make reservations for our family Christmas Eve dinner. Our party of four had the grits, omelets and the french toast. Delicious."

  • "Thoroughly enjoyed my birthday dinner at Chaz! Our server, Doug, was attentive and timed everything perfectly, especially since we wanted a leisurely experience and our courses spaced out. Bit of a stumble on the cocktails, but the food was stellar and everything else was a complete delight. Cannot wait to return!"
    Dined on 9/20/2014
  • "Quaint with good food. Go ahead and order your own entre. The portions are appropriately sized for one person. Not the commonly found oversized portions for oversized people."
    Dined on 9/19/2014
  • "Excellent choice for our anniversary. Live the live music and very romantic. Only thing was the portions for the price are a little small"

  • "Chaz is the best restaurant in Kansas City! The food, the service and the atmosphere are perfect and my family and I make it a point to have dinner here every time we visit KC. We had the opportunity to try their new menu, and it was fantastic. Try the short ribs!"

  • "It was a special occasion for my daughter-in-law--her 45th birthday; we, all 5 of us, really liked the attention. the 16 & 13 yr olds were awed, they thought it was exceptionally fancy!!!"
    Dined on 9/13/2014
  • "It was a great experience. I asked around to find a nice place to take my girlfriend for her birthday and I was given great advice. The servers were all very polite, as were other patrons. The food was outstanding. I cannot say one aspect of the experience outweighed any other."
    Dined on 9/6/2014
  • "The service was good, and the wine list was impeccable. However, the short braised ribs were a bit dry and chewy."
    Dined on 9/6/2014
  • "Great menu choices beginning with appetizers, soups and salads to the main course of steak and seafood. Good wine list and other bar drinks. The food was properly prepared as requested with excellent presentation. Great desserts to choose from and various specialty coffees and ice wine. The service was absolutely excellent."

  • "We ate here on a Friday night. The bar was pretty noisy when we arrived, but quieted down. We each had the Chaz salad, which we liked. Our different steak dishes were tender and flavorful. His had quite a bit of crab with the steak. Our desserts were very good. I had the green tea tart and he had the chocolate dessert. They have some pretty interesting wines on their list. The service is always excellent and they have valet parking. Prices make it kind of a splurge for us, but we always enjoy it."

  • "Celebrated my wife's birthday at Chaz. It was our first time eating here since moving to the area 2 months ago. Food was excellent, difficult to finally decide on a final selection. We shared two apps before our dinner so dessert was out of the question. I expect we will visit Chaz again in the future."

  • "Good food and service but the noise level from the lounge can be distracting. If you want to have a conversation, get a table on the lower level."
    Dined on 8/30/2014
  • "We love having special dinners at Chaz. The food is outstanding - I highly recommend the filet, fried green tomatoes, and the calamari were all delicious this time. Especially enjoy the buy one get one coupons for birthdays & special events! Never disappoints. High quality ingredients, great flavors, and we absolutely love it!"

  • "A special occasion evening. Made reservations for two reasons: 2 To have fine dinner with my sweetheart and propose, 2. because of the jazz, specifically local vocalist Angela Hagenbach who is great. Our waiter was very attentive. Great wine. After dining, we were able to move to the bar where Ms. Hagenbach sang a song I asked her to sing (beforehand). Her timing was perfect. And the hotel manager offered the two of us glasses of champagne when he realized we had just become engaged moments before. I highly recommend this place. Note---It is a restaurant FIRST and a jazz venue (facilities-wise) second. If you want to hear the jazz well, be sure to reserve well in advance one of the few tables actually in the bar where the music is."

  • "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!"

  • "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."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "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!"
