In the heart of Cary Street you cannot beat this restaurant. You think you are a bistro in France. The service is excellent and the food is delicious. I had a beet salad (a lot of little beets, not the big ones) with hazelnuts. Beyond delicious. That with wine and their incredible bread, I never want to leave. This restaurant... More

The can Can surely has phenomenal brunches, lunches and dinners, but my experience was 2 very simple breakfasts with my girlfriend and 5 year old son. Outside, on the patio, a "fragel" with pure butter and fresh jam; a delicious chocolate croissant, and really good coffee. Don't miss it!

This place was terrific. The moment you step into the restaurant you will swear (by the ambiance) you are in Paris. The details of the architecture and design are superb. You have to check out the bathroom too - the lighting fixtures, the old style toilets! Ok, so for the food...I guess that's what I should really be writing about.... More

A great spoke for a light lunch (great French bread and onion soup, for instance) or an extensive menu from pan roasted lobster/ravioli ($26), salmon, chicken, braised short rib ($26), grouper, steaks. Reliably excellent cuisine, good service, busy, a bit noisy.

We love the can can! Our last visit was in July. I feel like the menu could have had more to offer, we dined here for a late lunch, however the service and the food were top notch.

So the locals rant and rave about this restaurant, and I did enjoy the variety of the menu (I had the zucchini pancakes for brunch). The outdoor seating is cute, set up to resemble a French cafe, although you are subjected to all the Carytown scenesters and street vendors so I'd probably not sit outside on a busy day. Excellent...

This restaurant reminiscent of Cafe Versailles, does not fail to please. The inviting decor makes one feel he or she is in Paris. The varied menu meets every taste. Service is efficient & pleasing, & the kitchen is efficient, with well-prepared & presented entrees. Our party of 4 internationally experienced eaters loved it.

Having eaten at dozens of Brasseries in France over the years I was amazed to find this gem in Richmond. The food and atmosphere transport you to France ( minus the snooty waiters). Everyone in our group felt like they nailed the experience of eating in a brasserie. The first thing you notice is the terrific bread and butter that... More

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!!
