Perfect for a romantic dinner date

I ended up going here with a group of girlfriends for my 30th birthday. Everyone's food was amazing (as was the wine!). I had the beef wellington, and it was perfectly tender. I would love to come back here for a romantic dinner, the ambiance in the evening is something really special.

This is a great place for a quick party a coffee for breakfast, a raucous Sunday Brunch or an elegant dinner. It has a great casual atmosphere but serves authentically delicious French food. The special dinners with wine pairings are a great way to meet new people. Best place in Carytown!

To start off the atmosphere is amazing. I loved the lay out but the service was average. The food I didn't get to try because there was hair in it. All three of us had hair in our food. Our poor waiter was not very confident in handling the situation and the manager never came over to us to step... More

Our late reservation handled very well, our table was ready when we arrived. Though we were near the rowdy bar scene, the whole dining experience was lovely. Every course was perfect from jumbo shrimp on ice with cocktail sauce, to a simple green salad carefully dressed, prelude to perfect trout with caper and white wine sauce over creamed potatoes, asparagus...

I have had some of the best ever meals in this restaurant! Warning: order carefully - if you want an entrée, that will be enough if you want a fabulous dessert so skip the apps. I have ordered two appetizers as dinner and that's more than enough (and no dessert). Whether it is lunch or dinner, the standards are the... More

I always wanted to try French foods and just drop by Can Can to see and experience it. The crispy oysters was just right, light and not over cooked with a great remoulade sauce. I have the Thursday special of Sea bass with a great mixture of vegetables and cooked in a parchment paper with just the right juices and... More

It's a nice place on Cary Street. The desserts are pretty good, there's a variety of beer and wine, and it's attractive. The appeal of sitting out in good weather is there. The service is good. The relationship between the food quality and experience and price just isn't there for me, so I feel I have a decent time but... More

I have visited Can Can multiple times during happy hour. Great drink specials combined with food specials (different each night of the week) make for a pleasant evening experience. The steak tartare is the best I've ever had and I continue to come back just for that! Happy hour specials on raw oysters and burgers are also very good. Highly... More

If you're looking for a nice place to eat with good food and don't mind the high prices, go here. If you're looking to impress a girl or if you're on a date, go here. If you're with your coworkers / bosses and your company is picking up the tab, go here. The food is a little too fine for... More
