We stopped here for Father’s Day brunch. We waited about 20 min and the seated us at a three top at the bar. The service was very good and the food was outstanding. My son had the red velvet pan cakes and he ate a...stack of five. My wife had The Talcott, poached egg meal, she just wished there was more. I had the Croque Monsieur, it was so good. The bread they bring you is fresh and great. I could just eat that and be satisfied. I would highly recommend this restaurant when your in Cary Town.More

Such an amazing spot! I stopped by on a business trip and had the salmon plate appetizer and it was off the charts amazing! The pickled blackberries were a neat treat. Also, crushed capers are where it’s at…no more rolling around! Every bite was soooo...good!!!!More

Great, fresh food, great service, wonderful music soundtrack and a fun atmosphere. Free parking in small lot at outdoor strip next to it which I suspect gets filled quickly. They sell their foor /fresh bread for take home. Had a special- lobster quiche and it...was fantastic.More

Drew, the manager, was more than professional. He was an absolute winner in every way and made my experience absolutely exemplary. It was my birthday dinner and apparently, before I arrived (fashionably late, as always), there was a bit of an altercation between someone in...my party and our original server. Drew did everything in his power to not only diffuse the situation, but salvage any semblance of a good time possible. Liz, our new server, was also as understanding and professional as can be. Very knowledgeable of the menu and extremely personable. If you’re looking for professionalism and class, especially in this day and age when finding quality staff is is a whole jigsaw puzzle and a half, Can Can. Impressive is an understatement. Thanks again Drew and Liz for making what could have been a horrendous experience a more than memorable one. Next time I’m in richmond, I’ll be seeing you all. Maybe with a smaller party next time ;)More

Mussels lacked flavor. Beef tar tare average (wife liked it). Fries were great. Very good service. Overall, not food that would bring you back.

The food was ok. Not great but ok. The service was awful. We knew things were going south when the server slammed our water glasses on the table. We were not asked did we want another drink. I did finally ask at the end but...we had finished dinner.More

Went there for a late lunch. The Prix fixed lunch special was a great deal (although it is not a low priced restaurant), and our waiter was excellent.

Lovely early dinner with granddaughter. Daily special, Dover sole, was perfectly done with a sauce that did not overwhelm. A tad noisy but well worth a visit when in Carytown!

This is an efficient, busy French restaurant on Cary Street in Richmond. From the start the experience is great. As you walk in there is a flower market on the street. The service is efficient and polite and very helpful in answering questions about various...dishes. The food is exquisite. The bread is made in house and differs regularly. Very artistic. We were very pleased with our meal. Should we return to Richmond, we shall return to Can Can. You won't be sorry if you dine here.More

It is always best to contact the restaurant directly for this kind of policy. I simply suggest finishing the bottle to avoid the issue. They have an outstanding selection of wines from everywhere.

Can Can DOES offer a kid's menu! Les Enfants! I have taken my granddaughter there several times. The fresh fruit is a healthier alternative to the frites, (but the frites are great also). The grilled cheese is a favorite... More
