We went for Saturday brunch. It was very quiet. I had lobster benedict which was well prepared but I felt you lose the lobster taste as presented and I probably wouldn't have it again. We each had a specialty brunch cocktail which were a bit pricey but tasty and potent. The service was very congenial and with just the right... More

Our dinner at Chaz was charming from the moment we walked in front of the restaurant. Beautiful lighting and outdoor fire pits line the Hotel Raphael walkway as you enter Chaz on the Plaza. The hostess greeted us very warmly and seated us early for our reservation. The service was above and beyond in every aspect. Our waiter and assistants... More

I had the best experience at this restaurant. The food was delectable and service was great! I recommend the She Crab Soup, Grilled Caesar salad, Diver Caught scallops & Sour Cream fried chicken. Price per entree is between $25-$41.

Rarely am I impressed with the service, but our waiter was a true professional. It was like being in a movie. And the food... WOW. We had the Calamari and it was served in the middle of a salad. I thought it looked odd but was a perfect blend that was delicious. Don't fight the traffic, stay at the hotel... More

I went here for my birthday. It was a great evening. The she-crab soup is always divine. The veal Oscar and the filet were both quite good. We love the live music in the dining room/lounge area. There is a nice, intimate feel to this restaurant but it would also be good for a business dinner. I've had lunch there... More

Intimate, classy, subdued, elegant but not stuffy. Food portions are huge AND incredible. Located in an old, classy hotel - Raphael - the ambience is subtle.

This classy yet intimate restaurant, on the Country Club Plaza, has always maintained a great reputation, even through a few ownerships. They now have appropriate dinner music every night. Situated in a grand old hotel, The Raphael, the food is always top-notch. Talented creative chef utilizes his Southern upbringing masterfully.
