    We went for my husband's birthday. We have eaten at Chaz several times and always enjoyed it. Unfortunately, they have not maintained their extensive menu. We also did not care for the musicians who were performing. The food was good, but not spectacular. Kind of disappointing.

    Chaz continues to be a personal favorite. As several quests in our surrounding area attested to, the service was extremely slow. No ones fault as the kitchen staff was extremely short-staffed. The Raphael Sunday incentive of dining and staying needs to be addressed so visitors have a great overall experience at this amazing venue without waiting long periods of time for food items.

    Birthday The food and service were excellent. However the music was very disappointing. We have enjoyed this duo on previous occasions but not this time and we left earlier than we intended. The cello player had a new electronic cello and he played it terribly. He played so loud that he drown out the lovely violin music and he played very jerky and kept making a thumping sound which beat on our heads. Also he kept carrying on a personal conversation with people at the table next to him. His performance was very annoying, unpleasant and distracting. We really liked the violin music and were disappointed that the cello player drowned his music out and distracted with his talking.

    We were driving through the area and decided to stop in for a lovely dinner. A hidden gem. It sits inside the basement of the Rafael Hotel. Best cosmo and very good wine options. My husband had the fillet which was very generous and I had the sea bass. Best sea bass! Highly recommend. Family owned and operated. Very fresh ingredients and very impressed with the chefs presentation.

    Everything was absolutely superb. Our server definitely seemed to be irritated and on a short fuse walked away several times before my mom was done speaking. It was somewhat rude. The food was amazing. The environment was wonderful the manager Deanna was very sweet and checked on us several times. It was a wonderful birthday celebration for my mother. The actual server was the only complaint I have and the only reason I didn't give this 100%.

    Steak frites was our entree. Frites were burnt. Medium rare steak was undercooked. Salad was delicious. Shrimp cocktail was dry and crème brûlée tasted good but seemed a day old. Sugar crust was not crispy. Very disappointing for the price.

    We were out for a date night. We usually split everything so we can try more things. Tonight we ordered the Mimosa Deviled Eggs, KC Steak with duck fat frites, and the Butter Cake. The deviled eggs were so good! My husband even committed on the burst of freshness from the dill. The steak was good but not mind blowing. The dessert was a decadent way to end our meal. Our server was very friendly and didn’t rush us. We will be back.

    I did not research the menus before I envited a friend. It was mostly breakfast two sandwiches and a lobster bisque. I had the french dip, it was soggy before I could dip it in the thickest aujus sauce I have ever had. The homemade chips were good. My friend had the eggs benedict. She ate all of it. There were only a total of three tables the whole time we were there, including us. I think a better menu would be more inviting to people. But I love the Chaz, have stayed at the Rapheal numerous times and have had dinner cocktails there many times. So I was so surprised.
