Our favorite choice for fine dining when in Kansas City! The food is superb and we enjoy the extensive wine list. The service is always impeccable …. Cassandra takes excellent care of us! Sunday brunch is also fabulous.

Great spot for dinner with friends or a romantic night out. The room ambience was great. It takes you back in time to where dinner out was more than just fast casual dining.
The food was very good. The service was excellent.

Highly recommend Chaz

Lovely place and good food but table was set up awkwardly close to others… no privacy, loud dinner hearing others.

I am a private chef that prepares fine dining cuisine on a regular basis. This was the first time my wife and I had been to The Chaz on the Plaza. We loved the food. The waiter was on point with his timing and clearing of dishes. We ordered appetizers, dinner, and dessert. All of the food was perfectly cooked and timed out well. Only down side was that valet was not available. And the decor was a little dated. Lastly, they sat us in the very back by the kitchen and the bathrooms. In all fairness, the total experience was very nice and worth every penny. And I didn’t have to cook or do the dishes.

All great except we were seated in the narrow hallway with servers constantly walking by. Our least favorite area in the restaurant. We have dined here for over 25 years.

We were excited to try a new restaurant to our family. The location and ambiance were great. The food was not so great. The French dip was salty and the side vegetables were over cooked. I will come back but probably only for drinks.

I didn't recall that happy hour menu was NOT an option with patio seating, so that was a significant disappointment. Weather and music were the best parts, service was not very attentive. we have enjoyed the outdoor wine dinners, so will just stick with those in the future!

Hi Groupon1Groupie, thanks for letting us know about your experience. In order for us to be able to continue supporting live music, we are not able to offer our happy hour menu on the patio for our Strings on the Green performances. It is available on the patio any other weeknight and always (during happy hour hours) in the lounge. But you are right, we can do a better job in communicating that, and we appreciate your feedback. We hope to see you again soon.

Chaz at one time was one of - if not THE - premiere place to eat on the Plaza. The service has dropped slightly - not horribly. We waited a bit to get our first waters but was decent the rest of the night.

The ambience is still perfect. Nice soft strings live music was perfect. The cocktails were nice and fairly priced.

The food - for the money - is average. Which is heartbreaking. I remember it being stunning. I remember oohing and ahhhing with food in my mouth.

It seems those days are over. It’s not that the food is bad. It’s not. It’s that it is okay to good … and Chaz can do better. Should be better. Particularly for their price point.

We had a wonderful dinner with friends at Chaz. The service was outstanding and the food was, by and large, excellent. The only reason I gave the food 4 stars instead of 5 was because I ordered a shrimp cocktail and it was the strangest shrimp cocktail I have ever seen, and I did not particularly care for it. It looked like it had some kind of breading on the shrimp. Whatever it was, it was not crisp-it was like soggy breading. And it was quite spicy. Anyway, some things should just be left alone - it’s hard to improve on a good, basic, shrimp cocktail! We enjoyed the cocktails and the wine we selected too. And other than the shrimp cocktail, the food was well prepared and delicious. We had requested one of the large booths, and they were able to seat us in one of those, which helps to cut down on the noise from the rest of the restaurant.

The service here was really good and enhanced the experience. The food was just so-so; both our dishes (seabass and lamb) were very salty. Others around us were very happy with their dishes but we found them just ok.

Service was exceptional from the moment we walked in the door. Food (lamb) was better than good to me but not exceptional. My wife on the other hand thought her food (steak) was exceptional. We will return in the future and if you haven't been its definitely worth going.

Menu sounded better than it tasted. I ordered Steak Diane and it was tough and on top of mashed potatoes that were tasteless. My wife ordered the sea bass and it had been overcooked and with a crust on it from it being overcooked.

What a amazing experience the Chaz offers. We loved the live music and the food and service was phenomenal. My husband and I loved the lobster bisque. I ordered the Sea Bass and it was delicious. My husband had the Scallops and told me they were the best he ever had. The were huge diver scallops and the presentation and flavor combinations were perfect. He thought the grapefruit was unique and really tasted delicious with the scallops. We shared the Brown Sugar Butter Cake that our server recommended and it too was delicious.
Love this place. It gets a 10 from us!
