We picked this place quite by accident because I needed a place close by to where one of my dogs was having surgery. I brought the other one with me and a friend and I ate outdoors in the small patio area. The wait staff were most accommodating and the moules/frites and pilsner were as good as in any brasserie...

Stopped by with a friend on our first visit to the Carytown district of Richmond. Can Can has indoor and outdoor dining - we chose outdoor and were right on the street which was great for people-watching. Indoors seemed incredibly lively as well. Great wine and cocktail list, and the food was excellent. Will definitely come back!

Great food, excellent service, and French ambiance. My husband and I have food allergies, but they were very gracious in accommodating us. We arrived at 4:40, and they don't serve dinner until 5:00, but they welcomed us in, seated us, and poured our wine. The waiter answered our (food) questions. Going here is our tradition for every visit to Richmond.

Can Can is an interesting French restaurant featuring great food and decadent desserts. Be sure to make a reservation, as this restaurant fills up fast during their peak times. I love their Sunday Brunch, where you can go up to the bar and order a croissant, crepes, or other delicacies. Their coffee is wonderful, and their staff is spot on... More

The brunch is particularly good with freshly brewed coffee brought to your table and yummy egg dishes. The service was a bit slow the last time I was there, but the ambiance is nice. Like a bustling french bistro

I can't imagine eating five feet from a parking lot/street and paying the kind of money they charge. It is a bit unusual, convenient in Cary Town but a bit expensive.

We really loved the atmosphere and the decor. The food was very good and the French 75 cocktail was excellent. The service was truly outstanding and is what made this visit stand out.

The ambience and menu choices at Can Can in Ricihmond are very good. And the foof is delicious. However, the portions are SMALL. Paying over $20 for three or four bites of an entree is not acceptable. The Grouper was excellent, but fleeting as there was little of it. The Caesar salad presentation was interesting, but in a way that... More
