Had dinner at Can Can Saturday night and then took in the movie at The Byrd right down the street. Food was excellent (Rockfish & Roasted Butternut Squash Napoleon) & a double Petit Plateau (oysters, shrimp, clams, mussels). The later was displayed on two rotating platters and was prepared to our guest's order (and I even ate several oysters accompanied... More

I have been to Can Can many times. I usually go with my two adult children and also meet friends there. We go for the atmosphere. We like to sit at the bar and people- watch from the huge open windows that have a great view of Cary Street. Drinks are good and the food is pretty good. I cannot... More

This is not my first time here, but it was my first time for lunch. It was the first nice Saturday after the snowstorm and it was crowded! But the host has it under control and we were seated rather quickly. The service at our table was impeccable. I had the salad nicoise. I would've loved seared tuna rather than... More

Great place for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Never had a bad meal there. Love to meet my girlfriends there for birthday lunches. Location is great for pre- and post meal shopping in Carytown.

A small group of my friends decided to have dinner here while on a trip to Richmond. I love the Cary Town area of Richmond, so this place was a perfect choice. We were seated promptly on a Monday night night at one of Charles's tables, and greeted by him shortly after sitting down. He made some good drink recommendations... More

Ok... here's the deal: 1. I have been eating at Can Can for 10 years... it was my go-to restaurant for brunch, lunch, happy hour, special occasions, entertaining out-of-town visitors, etc. Whenever anyone new in town asked "Can you recommend a restaurant?" I always directed them to Can Can. 2. On Sunday, Jan. 17, 2016, I had reservations for noon... More

Great venue and decor with a varied menu and good food. Only problem we had was one of the dishes was cold. Was told they don't have a microwave, which would have solved the problem. As it was one of our party had to wait for their food. Kitchen problem rather than a server problem.

Located in Cary Town near the historic Fan District of Richmond, Can Can provides a good selection of French Bistro dishes. We enjoyed the steak and frites entrée with accompanying beet salad. Reservations are recommended on weekends when both the bar and restaurant areas fill early.

Brasserie is a brew house in France and they are often quite large so this fills the bill. It also has a very good selection of beers, especially Belgian Trappist beers (make sure you have a driver as they are quite powerful). The menuj is not extensive but is very decently filled with French favourites. My salmon was done exactly... More
