We've had lunch here twice, and while I enjoy the atmosphere of the place, I just can't make myself get enthusiastic about the food. I'd recommend it as a stop for a coffee or something light, but go somewhere else for lunch.

They have the best frites and the burger is delicious. The croque madame is a great brunch item and don't forget to save room for a chocolate croissant!!

We stopped in at the very end of our Richmond get away and were surprised to find the antique décor, attentive service and spot on food. One of the best poached eggs I have had with a hollandaise to rival any I have had (and that is a lot!). Husband enjoyed a huge burger cooked to perfection with more than... More

My client introduced me to this wonderful restaurant and return every time I am in Richmond. What a great spot. Just had a lovely dinner this past week. I dined alone and had a lovely scallop appetizer + salmon for the main course and with the bread it was honestly one of the best meals I've had in a restaurant.... More

I've been treated to the Can Can Brasserie twice and loved it both times. Highly rank the service, atmosphere and food. Don't miss the Madaline (their signature drink.) Tres bien.

I absolutely love Can Can. The atmosphere is so like that of a real Parisienne brasserie, from the zinc bar to the menu to the black-and-white clad wait staff to the music playing in the background. It's boisterous without being loud or obnoxious. I love going there with friends and sitting at the bar, or visiting on a Saturday morning... More

The first time we stopped at Can-Can, we were on the way to the outer Banks and we just happened to drive by the place and like the way it looks. It was such a wonderful experience- food, ambiance and service combined, we went back to Richmond especially to have dinner there again. It is hard to describe everything we... More

nice ambiance, good menu, efficient service. The food is of course the most important thing and it was excellent. The in house made breads were fantastic, i could have made a meal of just that. The bread with the fruit and nuts in it was very good. The waiter tried too hard to seem smart and corrected my French pronunciation.... More

The food was amazing. Had the bacon wrapped dates & steak with potatoes for dinner. The wine was great as well. It was very pricey though. $55 for just myself. I split an appetizer & bottle of wine with two other friends & had a main course. Beautiful decor inside though, and during the warmer months its beautiful to sit... More

Recently stopped in after a sporting event in the area. We did not arrive for dinner until after 9PM. We were seated immediately with no issues. The place was still fairly packed and volume of noise was quite high. We were surprised at how many people were in the restaurant but it was also a beautiful night and everyone had... More
