Our server was delightful and helped make our dining experience and our anniversary a delightful one. The only one comment I would make is that when you ask for a quiet, private table without a lot of distractions or loud background -- the seating at Chaz really doesn't provide that and every time I have requested it has not been provided to us so I can only think that -- that requested seating is not available at Chaz; just to mention -- but dinner was lovely.

Our server Cassandra was amazing; even remembered us from the year before when we were celebrating Valentine's Day. The service was outstanding, very attentive but not too fussy. The entire staff was great, and we especially enjoyed our after dinner drinks in the lounge, listening to the Mengel Brothers - a must see if you love music! Thank you to the Chaz for a very memorable birthday!

This is an excellent place to have dinner any night, but especially on a Friday or Saturday night. Too many fine dining restaurants are deafeningly noisy on a weekend night, but Chaz is not. It is quiet enough for people to hear one another without yelling. Plus, the live music is always appealing and somehow contained enough that it is not very loud back in the restaurant seating area. The food is well prepared and tasty - they also have an excellent wine list (too bad I cannot afford most of their offerings, but there are some good value wines available).

Very intimate setting, so great for a romantic dinner. Overall a great restaurant, but we were disappointed in the slow service. We heard two apologies for the slowness, which should never never happen at a restaurant of this calibre. The bread and flat bread crackers were stale and uninviting. The waitress accommodated our salad requests so that was good, but then a 30 minute wait after the salads were finished was unacceptable. Filet and Salmon were above average. They did bring my wife a great desert for her birthday. The triple chocolate cake is exceptional.

Was slightly disappointed. I had read very positive reviews but the venue is somewhat dated. Not sure the quality of the food and ambiance justified the price either.

Food just OK ... service nowhere near what one would expect at this price point (set menu, set price @ $50.00 per person ...) ... a general sense of get ‘em in, get ‘em fed, get ‘em on out attitude on the part of pretty much all the staff ... can’t imagine a reason to try them again.

A great place for a low key Sunday brunch. The live jazz is fantastic and not overpowering the conversation. The server was attentive and all around enjoyable. The kitchen was gracious in accommodating the special requests from a few folks at our table.

The food was fabulous and the service was excellent. The only negative is that we ate early and they seemed to put everyone together in a fairly tight corner, which made sure that our dinner included listening to the table next to us comparing the size of their wallets.

Otherwise, the flatbread was phenomenal, the lobster bisque was unique and very good (though it could have used chunks of lobster), and both my wife's sea bass and my crab were excellent. The dessert was also very good.

The wait staff was very professional and attentive. The live music was also a nice touch that never seemed overbearing.

$4.00 for a cup of bad tasting coffee was very disappointing. Biscuits and gravy was so-so with the bottom of the biscuits tasting like a very old pan with rancid shortening. Cinnamon roll was not made from scratch, or if it was it was made several days before we ordered. It was flat, dry, and not worth $6. It was very disappointing.

I had the best omelet of my life! It was make your own and you could choose 4 ingredients. I did goat cheese, ham, spinach and mushrooms. I am still thinking about that omelet! It was a great brunch.

The manager was very nice and understanding about a mishap with our food. Took it off and gave us free dessert! Great food and lovely experience. One tip for the manager is that the ledge by us (behind the bar) was very dusty, a little off putting. Other than that it was great

We were celebrating our anniversary and our waitress Casandra brought us champagne with our dessert which was a nice touch. We ordered from the Valentines Day menu which was a great deal, four courses for $50.00. We enjoyed the music and the ambiance and will be back.
