We had a wonderful dining experience celebrating my birthday! Cassandra was a friendly and knowledgeable server who gave us great advice on entrees and specials including a mushroom crepe of the week! We also had avocado deviled eggs. I had the sea bass and my husband had the filet. We both had lobster bisque. All were fantastic! The Mendel Brothers played several of my requests and Happy Birthday! Valet parking was so nice. Everyone was very friendly and enjoyable to talk to. We had a great evening!

Went to go see the band, but we were seated all the way in the back by the kitchen entrance. Waiter was fantastic but couldn't make up for the fact that we couldn't hear the band at all, just dishes.

All the service was fantastic. The timing of the food was on point. Everything was so delicious. Then we moved to the bar and the bartenders were so good and everything was just perfect.

The food was amazing! The service was over the top! Our waitress knew everything that was on the menu. All of our food was served hot. My wife ordered a rosé, I ordered a Bourbon. Without sounding over the top, was probably the best food that I’ve had in Kansas City.

Food and service was good but probably not worth the cost. Make sure you have a reservation because I witnessed them turning away customers even though there were plenty of empty tables the whole time we were there. No, it wasn't a covid thing, people eating in the table next to us, they left but the table never got filled with guests. There were plenty of tables far away from each other that never had people sitting in them. The manager apparently would prefer NOT to serve anyone who doesn't have a reservation.

Easter brunch: not cheap but very nicely coursed and delightful wait staff. Not too crowded and comfortable environment. Some stars in the flavor category: the butternut squash soup and the appetizer quiche. Fresh whipped cream better than the chocolate cake that could be more decadent.

We had a wonderful server and an enjoyable meal. Our steaks were very tasty but overcooked. The decor is dated but still nice.

We will be back on a jazz night.

Fantastic food in a quaint setting. We were basically the only ones there early Friday evening, which made it quiet. Waiter was attentive and friendly. Prices were high but the food was very good. I’d eat there again!

While it's at the boutique hotel, Raphael, it is a destination worth visiting on its own. Gracious, impeccable service. Wonderful cocktails and wine list and presentation (my manhattan was served in a heavy cut crystal goblet). Great choice of wines by the glass. Filet cooked perfectly. Not a single misstep, except on first visit the server didn't insist I accept the bread tray. Upon my second visit, I learned the mostflavorful flat bread I had ever eaten was house made.

We have dined at Chaz many times over the years, but this was our first visit in more than a year (COVID, etc.). The restaurant has bee reconfigured to place tables further from each other - this treatment made the restaurant seem empty and cold. The lack of tablecloths made the look and feel of the place less upscale. Service was slightly inattentive, despite there being only a few tables of guests at 6pm on a Tuesday evening. Our waiter got my wife's order wrong, and she had to wait for it to be corrected while the rest of us had ours. The food, though a bit long in coming out of the kitchen, was well prepared and presented to all four of us.

This was our first inside dining experience since the pandemic started and though we were already vaccinated, we have been concerned re risks of being out more. Chaz and the staff made us feel very safe. The food was absolutely wonderful (as well as our service). It was so nice to get back to one of our favorite restaurants!!!

The lobster bisque was sweet, way sweet! The mushroom dish was so salty that it was nearly inedible and the yucca fries needed salt-weird. The service and ambiance will make me return😊

This was an above average experience. Great service, food, and ambiance was good. There were some noisy customers but ultimately that did not significantly disrupt our evening. Food was amazing! Steak perfectly seasoned and prepared just as I asked. Cheddar grits were PERFECT, which is something that is very hard to impress me with since I’m a southern born guy! Server was polite and personable. Definitely will be coming back!

The service was excellent and the place is nice. KC strip was delicious as well as the sides it came with. Prime rib was a little fatty and underwhelming for $55.
