I was staying at the Raphael Hotel and it was the logical choice to chose Chaz. Me and my wife loved it as a romantic meal option. A little too pricey for everyday eating but for this one time and all the future times, this will always be a top contender when deciding to have that special occasion.

The Chazerac was outstanding, I will definitely be back for another. Enjoyed the crab cakes to start and absolutely loved the seared scallops. The ambience was nice, relaxing, and enjoyable. I was able to catch-up with old friends. Thank you for a wonderful meal and pleasant time. I will be back for more!!

We've been to chaz numerous times when in KC and it's always a good experience. The little jazz band that plays there is wonderful. Not too loud, and had the basketball games on as well. It also helps to stay right across the street at the Intercontinental too. Headed back in about 2 months.

A bit disappointing this time. We each ordered steak (1 filet & 1 ribeye), & they were cooked perfectly. What neither of us cared for was the kale (tough & bitter) & the mushrooms (also tough). Hopefully kale will soon lose it's luster as a side item.
Service, as always, was excellent. We also found a comparatively inexpensive, but exceptional wine!

We are from out of town and were told by KC friends that Chaz was excellent. The food was quite good, except for the panzanella salad, which was mostly rather dry croutons with occasional flecks of kale and squash, on a bed of speck. I had expected lots more vegetables and fewer croutons. The wait staff were very responsive to my comment, and offered to bring either another dish or some greens with dressing. I chose the latter. The service was very attentive and it was a pleasure to dine in a setting with NO LOUD MUSIC to interrupt our conversation!

Perhaps we were expecting more than we got in the way of food and inspired plates. Things were okay but for a nearly $200 for two people (including only one alcoholic drink, no coffee, etc) we were expecting more wow or yummm or something more notable than we got. Enjoyed most the live music in the background of oldies but goodies. Too bad because I think of this as a destination place but it wasn't/

As usual, the service and meal were superb. We both had the spinach salad and pork saltimbocca. The spinach was very fresh and the poached​ pears, grapes, dried cherries, blue cheese crumbles, hazelnut vinaigrette dressing made it one of the best we have ever had. The pork (medium well but still juicy and slightly pink) could not have been more tasty and the lemon risotto was absolutely delicious. We have never been disappointed.

Food was perfect as usual. Helpful staff. Live Music. Value is definitely there for a quality meal with some creative elements. For instance, great salad choices. We miss the Shecrab soup and Chilean Sea Bass (our favs), but our choices from the new menu were great any ways.

We went with friends. With the birthday free entree for both us and our friends it was quite a bargain for the quality of food. I love seafood, and am partial to tuna. This was the best seared tuna I've ever had, literally. Melted in my mouth. Extraordinarily tasty. Just excellent all around. The accompaniments were also good, and the portions were very adequate. The tuna made the experience.
Started with the soup of the day, root soup without the ham. I prefer, at fine restaurants, tasting something I can't get elsewhere. Both the soup and the entree fit that description, although most fine restaurants have seared tuna on the menu. We stayed for over 3 hours, enjoying the evening with friends for our mutual birthday celebration. We do it every year, often at a seafood restaurant, but we'll be back to Chaz next year as well.

We had always wanted to try this place because we heard it was “fancy.” The service was great but the food was meh. We had the Valentine’s Day price fix courses. Lobster bisque was great but ribeye special was not good at all. It was prepared like a pin-wheel which was interesting but the inside was cold and not flavorful at all. The chocolate Moulton cake didn’t “moult” and was dry. This is very much a been there done that place.

We came here for Valentines Day. My cap steak was only half edible. Most of it was fat and some very tough, leathery bits. I expect this quality from a chain restaurant, not a $175 meal.

The cake desert was okay.

The peach flavored Moscow Mule was outstanding.

We visited Chaz for Valentines Day. The staff was very accommodating as we had to move our reservation out twice that day due to conflicts. The food was amazing. We had the ribeye. So, tender that you could cut it with a fork! I mean literally. The music was perfect for the occasion and the sound level was such that you could enjoy a conversation from our table without having to shout. Great experience.

A nice experience with my daughters for an early Valentine's Day brunch. Our meals were tasty, but not exceptional. One daughter got the bananas foster french toast and said it was good but very sweet and the maple/brown sugar flavors did not blend well. She liked it, but would not order again. I got the steak and eggs. The filet was cooked perfectly to medium rare and nicely seasoned, but the meat was a bit difficult to chew almost as if it had been cut incorrectly. My other daughter got the power breakfast and enjoyed all of it. Both she and I really liked the parmesan potato cakes. The coffee was delicious; strong with no bitterness and very full, rich flavor.

Service was adequate, but somewhat inattentive. Restaurant was not particularly busy at noon on a Sunday, however our server took quite a while to take our orders after getting our drinks. Then he did not return to top off our drinks at all and we did not get refills until another sever brought our meals.

While the entire experience was good, it was not as high a caliber as I had been expecting and hoping to have.

We had a very poor experience at Chaz. This was our 3rd time trying the restaurant within the last year and was disappointed once again. I requested the cap ribeye with potato’s. Both The ribeye and the potato’s were cold when served. The ribeye was pre sliced which I wouldn’t have ordered if I knew that in advance. This information was not on the menu dnd the server did not mention it. The other couple ordered filets and those were cold as well. We sent the food back and 2 people were finished with their dinner before thd rest of us received our reheated dinner. When paying higher end prices for dinner the service and food should be perfect, well presented and hot! I don’t want yo wat a reheated steak and definitely not card board potatos. We have dined at Chaz a lot over the years but due to our most recent experiences we will not return.

Enjoyed the delicious food and entertainment by The Cynthia VanRoden Trio . My only complaint is that I made my reservation through Open Table and the restaurant put me down as a “no show”. Now I’m not in good standing with Open Table. I gave my name upon arrival . It was verified then that I had a reservation.
