My wife and I stopped in here after a day at the VMFA. We were greeted at the door by Laurel the Hostess and seated immediately. We commented on the decor (authentic French Brasserie) and Laurel enthusiastically explained how the owner had imported everything directly from France. It was obvious she had a great deal of pride not only in... More

I really enjoyed the brunch atmosphere and the brunch offerings. You can expect it to be a bit pricey but the atmosphere and the quality of the food is great. This was my 4th visit and I was pleased once again.

Had a leisurely lunch here on a beautiful, busy day. The windows were open. Better than eating outdoors. The food was very good and the service lovely. Easy to find something tempting on the menu. The dark bread was too good to pass up.

We eat here every time we visit Richmond. The food is consistently great. Their mussles, with several different preparations, are always a treat. We have not had a bad item on the menu yet, and their specials are excellent. Their burgers are terrific...charcoal broiled, nice and thick, and great flavor. The French fries are also always great...shoestring style. Desserts are... More

A perfect replica of a French brasserie, with huge wine lists and seafood selections. Enormous portions. Bar and outdoor seating. A Richmond institution that will be full in peak hours. Highly recommended.

Fun location in Carytown on Cary Street in Richmond. Service is good. Food is tasty and a good selection is offered. Ambiance is also nice. There is usually live music on the street which adds to the charm. Popular location with locals and college students.

Can can is a really cool place, like a Paris bistro, just bigger. I usually get the mussels, along with a glass of wine. The waitress we had was awesome, and the food is always good. This is one of my go to restaurants in Richmond. Definitely would recommend!

This is a popular restaurant with good prices and an authentic French vibe. We stopped in for lunch and the service was great. The menu selection was varied, and from the selection of oysters and appetizer to the dessert, the meal was quite well-prepared and tasty.

The meal (beef wellington with potatoes and asparagus) was phenomenal. Well priced and the portion was just right for a single meal. The cocktails are excellent and unique--definitely hand-crafted. The service was also excellent.
