I tried Can Can for the very first time recently after years of friends and colleagues raving about how great it was. Wow, I agree completely! It was absolutely wonderful! The French décor and accents are a great touch to the restaurant. The staff is very helpful. I got the Chicken Cordon Blue sandwich and my oh my, it was... More

They bring real bread and real butter to the table. The decor is brassy, sassy and fun. The onion soup is brilliant! The Wednesday night special was an AMAZING sea bass with fennel and beets! The burger was high quality, premium beef with a great bun. The frites were not as crispy as I like.... Our server, Murphy, was helpful,... More

Went there with a friend of mine for the first time and it was great. The ambiance was wonderful!!! We sat at a table in the front by the window and looking out onto Cary Street was just delightful. There was a flower cart stand on the corner and that just added to the tone of the evening. The food... More

We ate on a Tuesday evening at 7 pm and the place was packed. We had a reservation and were seated at a corner booth in the back, probably the quietest place in the restaurant, and the din was overwhelming!! the food was excellent, we enjoyed every bite, but the noise was headache producing. If you want a quiet dinner... More

This is classic stuff... well as close to Classic French Bistro as it gets in Virginia! Great selection of steak frites, moules, oysters, and lots of other dishes to remind you of the French bistro eating style down to the banquettes! Exposed ceiling reflects bar noise and can be overwhelming especially early evening after work when drinking buddies pile in... More

Stopped in for a late lunch with the girlfriends after Christmas shopping. The service was great and fast. Had the onion soup which was full of flavor and cheese. The special of the day was the beef bourguignon melted in your mouth. The others had the crepes which were full and delicious. Everything was great.

This is one of our favorite spots in town. The bar scene is happening, the atmosphere is close to Parisian (minus the rude garçon waiters, happily). The food is consistently good and there are reasonable plats du jour as well as seasonal changes to the menu. My son and husband swear by the hamburgers, the frites are crisp too. There... More

I have been to this restaurant 13 times with either friends, family or business associates. From overcooked hamburgers that looked much like a meatball, accompanied by limp and cold fries cooked in old oil, (we all sent back 3 times without success), to raw oysters (on 5 occasions) that were preshucked, old and dry (14 days according to the required...

Lunch was so delicious I can't wait to return for dinner or Sunday brunch. The service was impeccable. The general atmosphere is fun and inviting and the bar area is very impressive.
