Atmosphere galore!

The decor is impeccable. Every detail from the tile floor, bar, lighting and wall art are quintessential French. Even though the restaurant is quite large, it has a small Parisian feel. Food presentation is lovely. All the bread and desserts are made on the premises. Take brioche home with you. The... read more

We had dinner here in March 2015. We had reservations (I strongly suggest reservations for dinner) and were seated promptly. Drinks order taken and served promptly. Our server was very professional and helpful; food was delightful. It's an up-scale place in the twee Carytown part of Richmond. We were comfortable, well feed and taken care of and had a good...

Memorial Day Weekend on a Saturday and all the locals and tourists were out in the Carytown district. We were able to find seating for 3 easily. All chose the special lobster and seafood quiche which was excellent, very light and flavorful and not filling at all. It came with salad with house dressing, the waiter made accommodations when my... More

Can Can is one of the best french restaurants I've ever been to. It's a beautifully decorated restaurant, right in the heart of Carytown neighborhood. The menu is typical in appearance, but everything I've ever had is perfect and high quality. They do offer a daily happy hour including food too, if you want to go there on a budget.... More

We always try to get to CanCan when we come to Richmond. Everything we have had is excellent, and the service, ambiance are so classy - makes us feel like we are in Paris! I had the Friday special - Scallops, and they were exceptionally great! French Fries are a must, and the fresh bread is always a treat. Got... More

In the trendy neighborhood of Carytown, we stopped for lunch with our large party of nine. Very accommodating wait staff. Food is above average and fairly priced. Overall, I would recommend CanCan.

For a moment I imagined I was in France as I listened to the charming French music and read the wine list. This is a unique stop on an adventure along the eclectic Cary St. in Richmond. Attentive wait staff are happy to explain the menu items and offer a sip of an unfamiliar wine to make sure your selection... More

Can Can takes you back to a classic french era. The decor is very charming, and the food is tasty. The 1940/50's french music they played sealed the deal for me. Great for brunch. Haven't been there during dinner hours but I'm sure it's just as good. The Bistro style is good for couples, groups of friends, or families.
