Located in the iconic Raphael Hotel. Brunch is from the menu - not a buffet. Excellent choices of special breakfast and lunch items plus minosas and other breakfast cocktails. Our choices included pancakes, waffles, eggs and sausage, chicken fried steak and a steakburger. All were excellent. Live jazz-pop duo. Complimentary valet parking avilable. Recommend for a nice relaxing Sunday morning.

The brunch menu for Chaz is phenomenal, mouth watering. It is difficult to decide what to order, everything sounds so delicious. However the two mornings we ate here, the food ranged from mediocre to inedible. Who can ruin a Belgian waffle? The "chef" at Chaz - it was like sawdust. The only good things were our server and the fact... More

Visited Chaz with a coworker because we wanted a nice and quiet place for lunch without all the hustle and fuss of other restaurants on the Plaza. Menu is not huge but it has a variety of what you need for lunch. I opted for the soup, salad and sandwich combo. It was an average lunch. Nice place to dine... More

Hubby and I decided to do something different for Thanksgiving this year, and I'm so glad we did. We booked a room at the Raphael and they suggested we have Thanksgiving dinner at Chaz. The menu was specific to the holiday and served family style. Every dish was plated beautifully and tasted great. My favorite was the pumpkin ravioli and... More

We went to the weekend jazz brunch and had a great experience. This is not a huge buffet-style brunch, but the choices are good and service was very nice. I'm always a sucker for live music with dinner and here it didn't disappoint.

My friend and I were looking for a different restaurant to celebrate her birthday. The band was "British Invasion" so we thought a nice meal with an upbeat band would be just the ticket.

Food very good, though not excellent, in a superb hotel (The Raphael) across from Country Club Plaza (alas, cannot see it once in the restaurant). So far so good. But service a bit uneven, having to ask for some things multiple times and cannot find reservations. That combined with far, dull, worn, and drab decor, and I'd rather go to... More
