Chaz on the Plaza
We had "over-easy" eggs &We had "over-easy" eggs & they were actually cooked as ordered - most restaurants over cook them - so this is a big plus. I know the potatoes with the parmesean cheese is a specialty, but for breakfast I prefer the old fashioned fried postoes so I can dip the potato in the yellow part of the egg - so I don't think the potatoes served with over-easy eggs complimented the eggs...maybe that's just me.
Freshly squeezed OJ is also a nice touch.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial OccasionsI had the crab cake here which was good, but wasn't as good as my previous time I had it. It was slightly black on the outside but still good. We ordered the morel mushrooms which was special that night. I was sadly disappointed because they weren't meaty at all. It was like little bits of mushrooms. But the risotto was great. Cooked perfectly. Drinks are always nice here. Ambiance was good except our window seat was crammed between a booth and another 4-person table. Wasn't as spacey as I would've expected from this restaurant. Service is excellent but not a place I would frequent based on the price point.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMspecial occasionThis was a special occasion dinner for two. The food, the service, the ambience with live but unobtrusive music, made for a memorable evening.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I celebrated ourMy wife and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at Chaz.

An incredable dinner with excellent service (Josh this time), and good live jazz to listen to during and after dinner.
This has become one of our favorite sure things.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Experience!We love eating at Chaz. It's so delicious! The seasonal menu is has wonderful options and they are so flavorful and unique. One of the best steaks in KC! Celebrating a birthday with a free dinner coupon was even better. Love it & we'll be back!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were celebrating our 43rdWe were celebrating our 43rd wedding anniversary. Chaz has become a favorite go-to for special occasions and we were not disappointed. Would recommend this venue for celebrations such as this since it has a more intimate setting as opposed to the crowded chain restautants.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHaving just come back fromHaving just come back from South Carolina, we enjoyed the regional offerings such as the She crab soup.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMSome may rate Chaz as a 5Some may rate Chaz as a 5 Star restaurant, but the service alone is worth 6! The food is always perfectly portioned, and made exquisitely. They have some of the familiar basic items, but also offer some new treats. The staff goes above and beyond - extremely polite, helpful, and always seems to be there right when you need them. They also had a small band and singer performing, which was the best mix of providing background music, without drowning out our conversations. On top of the wonders happening inside, we had a view of the Plaza and the happenings outside. All and all, a great place to relax and enjoy a wonderful evening.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMChaz is my favorite placeChaz is my favorite place for breakfast meetings. The restaurant is large enough to accomodate a group while at the same time having privacy to discuss business. The decor is a bit dated, but warm and inviting. The wait staff it attentive and respectful of our requests. But best of all, the breakfast menu is full of delicious selections - and very varied. My favorite is the smoked salmon eggs benedict. So good!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother Anniversay to RememberWe always go to now "Chaz" at the Raphael for our anniversary. Our experience is always excellent and the food is outstanding. Our celebration was memorable. Thank you.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMChaz was recommended by aChaz was recommended by a reliable friend, and his reliability is again confirmed! A short walk from the Plaza, it was the perfect spot for our 37th ann. celebration. Romantic enough, Plaza view, and appropriate mood music. Top notch service! A former waiter in area high end restaurants, the service met and exceeded my expectations. The food had me wondering why I had never been here before, I can't say enough about the crab cakes or the prep of their steaks. Drinks and wine recommendations were perfect, as was the timing and skill of the presentation.
Yes, it is a bit pricey, but if that's all you're concerned about then I'm pretty sure that there's a McDonalds not too far away - but you will miss out on the beef tenderloin!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMChef Charles has created aChef Charles has created a wonderful menu with some inspired comfort food, some amazing Southern-influenced dishes and one of the best brunches in the city.

Romantic and a truly wonderful spot in KC.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMA Must !!!We went for Easter Brunch - as didn't want the traditional brunch fare - but did want delicious food, and that is what we got. I know of no other restaurant that has such consistently excellent food; and the staff, from the hostesses, to our waitress, to the Chef could not have been nicer. Altogether an A+ experience and we will make Easter Brunch at Chaz a tradition.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary at ChazMy wife and I celebrated our anniversary at Chaz on the Plaza. It was perfect for us and our night out without the little ones. We enjoyed the intimate atmosphere and wonderful food presentation and taste.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMTop Notch Restaurant!Every visit to Chaz is a delight! The menu choices are outstanding and always something for everyone. The chef has creative ideas and they translate well into interesting and great tasting dishes. We are always well taken care of by the staff. Wait staff who have assisted us in the past will stop by our table to greet us making us feel extra special. There is frequently jazz being played in the lounge which makes for enjoyable background music.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMBest burgers in town. TheBest burgers in town. The quality of the meat - excellent & best of all - cooked to order, in my case, medium. Most places the meat is those dreaded already made-up patties & then almost always overcooked. So I will spread the word - if you want a great hamburger - cooked the way YOU like it - go to Chaz.
I also had a cup of the Southwester vegetable soup - very nice - just enough kick with the spices withoout being so much it makes your mouth numb. thanks for a really good lunch.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe go to Chaz quite oftenWe go to Chaz quite often and have never been disappointed. Sometimes, we just stop in for drinks and to listen to the live music or have a romantic dinner and wonder on into the bar area for a wonderful close to our evening. One of our first dates was at the Chaz, we arrived for a 5:00 dinner reservation and left at midnight when the music stopped-a beautiful, and memorable evening, thank you Chaz.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMChaz continues to be a solidChaz continues to be a solid dining choice in Kansas City. Having music playing in the bar area, which is heard in the dining room, creates a nice relaxing ambiance.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent. Saw someFood was excellent. Saw some new faces. Music was not up to the level that we have experienced in our most recent visits.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place for a Plaza LunchLunch at Chaz gives the diner a pleasant mixture of tradition and modern vibrancy. The Raphael Hotel is in a row of Grande Dames facing Brush Creek and overlooking the Country Club Plaza, so there is a sense of history and elegance. The menu offers creative and imaginative interpretations of many traditional sandwiches and entrees on the lunch menu. My personal favorite is the Crab Cake Sandwich. It is very tasty served on a nice pillowy egg bun topped with spicy greens, marinated tomato and finished with a really good Chili Remoulade that was the perfect finishing touch. Our Server made us feel welcome and special. Service was unobtrusive but still personable and friendly. "Chaz on the Plaz" is destined to be a new favorite.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMHouse wine - red - was tooHouse wine - red - was too expensive at $12 !!! House wine should be in the $5-6 range. The cuban sandwich needs to be zipped up a bit - too plain, bland - maybe a spicier mustard on the side?3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMInteresting presentation ofInteresting presentation of the escargot appetizer, and tasty, too! The salad with the fried goat cheese was great. Overall good service and experience.2/21/2013 12:00:00 AMChaz was a delight in everyChaz was a delight in every way. Impeccable service, very knowledgable waiter, and delicious food! We visited during Kansas City Restaurant Week and enjoyed the meal immensely. The Grilled Caesar Salad was perfect, the scallops delectable and the Chocolate Cheesecake a perfect ending. Will definitely keep Chaz on our list of "specials"1/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI eat breakfast at Chaz alot.I eat breakfast at Chaz alot. The Eggs Benedict - yum. It's a "lovely" restaurant with excellent service; usually quiet - a good place to meet a friend or two for quiet conversation. As a friend says, "What's not to like?"12/29/2012 12:00:00 AMExtraordinary ServiceWe had an absolutely wonderful Christmas celebration at Chaz! The view of the Plaza lights is perfect and the food was very good. What really made the evening special, though, was our waiter, Steven. He was so professional and attentive without being intrusive - such a gem!12/20/2012 12:00:00 AM
