The staff is exceptional! From the hostesses to the wait staff to the manager. The restaurant is beautiful, warm and cozy. We dined there most mornings and always enjoyed it. There is often live music in the evenings which is a treat. If you're in the dining area the music is not overpowering which makes it easy to enjoy and... More

M6 husband and I visited on a Thursday for live music and their throwback Thursday dinner special. Salad, entree and a glass of wine for $40. Steak Diane was good.

I met my sister and friends at Chaz and was very impressed with the food and the service. I ordered the chicken fried steak, which came with 2 homemade biscuits, 2 eggs, and wonderful gravy. My friends ordered the waffle topped with strawberries and salmon Benedict, which they concurred were both delicious. The atmosphere buzzed with a live jazz band... More

We stayed at The Raphael Hotel for our 23rd anniversary weekend and called earlier in the week to reserve a table for Saturday evening for what we hoped would be a nice, romantic dinner. I specified that we were celebrating our anniversary when making the reservation. The woman repeated it back to me so I know there was no misunderstanding... More

Higher end hotel offers Jazz on the Plaza in Kansas City. The Raphael Hotel is one of the nicest best hotels in KC. It's a bit shabby old money. So is the Chaz on the Plaza bar. But you gotta stop in for a some live Jazz. Located right on the Plaza. Great place to swing by after dinner or... More

This restaurant was packed on a Saturday night. We were able to obtain seating in the bar. The live music was awful. The cacophony added to the din, and made conversation next to impossible. The server appeared overextended...service was slow, with long periods of waiting for a glass of water, a refill of water, ordering, etc. When she took our... More

Ceasar salad was wilted. The Kansas City strip steak sublime. The Chilean Sea Bass was well prepared. A mellow jazz trio was playing in the lounge, and could be faintly heard for a nice atmosphere. The server was polite and knew the menu well.

Lovely, intimate restaurant. Very attentive wait staff. Dinner for 2 about $90 including tip. Crab cake appetizer was excellent!Salmon was a bit peppery but very good. Also enjoyed the couscous & mixed vegetables. Scallops were overpriced (only 3 for $29) and not totally cooked. But, overall a very nice special occasion place!
