Very nice place for an evening out. Listened to a wonderful stand up bass and piano duet. Very good service, everything was on point. I only thought the wine was a little pricey, but then again we're on the Plaza.

We have been coming to the Raphael for our anniversary weekends since our wedding night in 1985. The Chaz is just a perfect restaurant experience. This past weekend we were there with some young friends who had never been there and they were overwhelmed with everything. It was also my birthday weekend and everyone made it a perfect meal and experience.

Food met expectations. Waitstaff was very personable. Our waitress/server was Cassandra. She was engaging. The bartender created non-alcoholic drinks for us and they were very good. We were seated immediately at a table in the main dining area. Next time I will ask for one of the 2-persons cubby holes along the hallway for a bit of romantic isolation. We indicated it was a belated birthday dinner, but didn’t receive any acknowledgment. That was the only disappointment of the night.

Loved our main courses of filet mignon and Sea Bass! Waiter was amazing and spot on. Dessert was butter cake type dessert which needed work. Just a let down after the fantastic meal. Music played by cellist and violinist was beautiful and soothing!

What a great restaurant and a special treat. Chaz has a robust wine list for wine lovers and its sommelier was fantastic. Service at Chaz was reminiscent of a Michelin restaurant. Most importantly, the food was fantastic. I would highly recommend and cannot wait to go back.

Had a wonderful time at Chaz for our anniversary the other night. It was a beautiful night in KC so sitting outside for a cocktail before dinner was awesome! Great service, food and ambiance and everyone was appropriately spaced out in seating. All around enjoyable night.

Sunday night during the pandemic was slow. However, the quality of the food and service were outstanding. My wife had the Scottish Salmon and I had the Filet. Both were just outstanding.

Not a large selection on the brunch menu, but what we had (eggs benedict, lox & bagel) was very good. No Jazz because of covid 19. No one is doing brunch buffets so we opted for this very fine restaurant and it was reasonably prices and tasty.

We were nicely spaced from other guests. All staff were wearing masks. The decor seems like it is straight out of the 60s. The smokey glass mirrored walls, to the giant wine bottle decoration.
Our waiter was extremely nice and very attentive to what we were looking for in our meal. The rating is due to the food. We called it our 50/50 dinner. Had the Calamari. Beautifully prepared. The Lobster bisque tastes nothing like a lobster bisque. No meat in the soup at all and tasted like a salt shaker spilled in the pot. Both my husband and I left it behind.
The Kansas City Strip Steak was one of the best steaks we have had. Top 20 in a long life of loving steaks. We finished with the St. Louis Gooey Butter Cake. I know this is the chefs rendition of the gooey butter cake, but being from St. Louis, I just could not see anything that was gooey butter cake in this. That finishes off the 50-50 meal, because my husband loved the desert, he agrees it was not St. Louis gooey butter cake, but enjoyed it.
So overall it’s a middle of the road rating for me. I have nothing bad to say for it although the salt was pretty bad, but I would go back, the steak is truly worth the visit. I do not expect a younger 30/40-year-old crowd here.

This was a special retirement dinner for my partner. We met up with some friends from Iowa and all stayed at the hotel and had dinner at the Chaz restaurant. It was wonderful! The service was outstanding and the food and wine were excellent! I had requested a large round booth, which they so very kindly reserved for us. We loved our server! He was so friendly and really took good care of us! Never felt rushed and just had a really relaxing, wonderful time!
