We stopped in for weekend brunch, and I have to say it was beyond delightful. Everything that we ordered was delicious. The brioche french toast was outrageous. The beignets tasted straight out of New Orleans (and I've eaten beignets in New Orleans). The yogurt parfait was heavenly. The kids' pancakes were even way above any typical kids food. Even the...

I was searching in Google to find a decent restaurant in the VCU area for lunch and stumbled on Can-Can Restaurant. The Google reviews seemed out of date and so-so but the menu looked fine and the pictures good. So, let's give it a try. Wow. True Brasserie atmosphere with white tiles and brass, a cheerful staff, but best of... More

Friends from Richmond brought us here. We stopped for a pastry and coffee. We had the Nutella hazelnut coffee and the cinnamon honey coffee. Excellent! The ambience of the place was very French. The staff served us well. We would recommend and like to come back for a full meal. Only giving four stars because didn't really eat a meal... More

Our dinner, which included monkfish and "moules et frites" was delicious. Our server was knowledgeable friendly and attentive, too!

We have visited Can Can on several occasions but were very disappointed on our most recent visit and will most likely not return. We went around 2 PM on a beautiful Saturday afternoon - they had opened the front window panels. The restaurant did not appear to be at capacity yet they made us wait at the bar. We were... More

The bread is really exceptional---ANY warm bread is a hit, but even cold the next day, this is lovely. All the dishes I've tried there were excellent, and yes, the atmosphere is invigorating. The parking is a problem, not just for this fine restaurant, but for any business in this area, so I don't hold that against them. My main... More

It is hard to know what appeals to Trip Advisor denizens when Krispy Kreme is #3. Can Can, on the other hand, would be highly rated anywhere. Creeps and quiches, wonderful sauces, bread to die for, and tasty deserts. Parking and a table can be tough on weekends, but worth the effort.

I dined last night at Cancan for the first time in years and very much enjoyed it. The atmosphere and service were probably the best elements. I greatly enjoyed being back in the exciting urban environment of Carytown. My pear and chestnut salad was excellent and the braised lamb entrée very good. I agree with the previous reviewer that the... More

The best thing about this restaurant is the atmosphere, it feels energetic, especially on the weekends. The food in general is a let down, the last time I went I had the onion soup which is great( maybe one of the only things that is great along with the fresh bread and the selected cheese board). honestly this is supposed...

Very popular near West End spot with moderately good food but a long way from true authentic bistro fare. Steak,frites,muscles good. Many salads and other specialties not up to par but service and wine list are superb
