An excellent French Restaurant with impeccable service. A little pricey but I think that's to be expected based on the service and quality of the food. Very nice bar selection (they even have Pastis). I highly recommend this establishment.

We had a Christmas Eve lunch with family here. It was so cheerful,festive, elegant and warm cozy inside. We all enjoyed our different meal salads with either chicken or salmon and soup. The salmon tasted good but actually thought it was chicken at first. Their lattes are wonderful and so are their breads. The bar area has a nice atmosphere.... More

Dinner, Wednesday Dec 21st, 2016. Wife, daughter (26) and I selected Can Can for our annual "Night on the Town" fine dining event. Thrilled! Suspect we will be returning again and again. Matthew was an outstanding server. Every recommendation he made was right on target, from wine choice to entrees. We had reservations at 6:15 PM, a nice time to... More

Richmond truly has a innumerable amount of good restaurants. Can Can has been around for a long time but still stands on strong legs. We were doing Christmas shopping in Carytown during the week and decided on a lunch here. Have dinned here many time and never disappointed, this occasion was no different. We sat at the lovely zinc bar... More

Stopped in for lunch on New Year's Day. The place was busy but not overly. Had planned to eat at the bar but their stools don't have backs which we find uncomfortable. Host told us 20 minute wait but came for us within minutes. Our server was pleasant and knowledgable, could have been a little more attentive but she was... More

First, I went in a Sunday, mid afternoon, where a reduced menu was offered. No problem with that. I figured the limited menu would keep things moving. Wrong. It took thirty minutes to get the server to take a drink order. Not only was that unacceptable, but we were joining family who arrived before us and who had already ordered.... More

Can Can staff project a sense of elegance and knowledge that I find assuring. Then again, what they produce from espresso I loved to a squash soup and fried oysters, comes out pretty much perfect. Beyond that, it's a matter of whether you're comfortable in the acoustics of a train station or not. If so, here's your spot!

Festive all around. Best French fries in Richmond. Love the ambiance of Can Can. Everything is great. Portions are smaller so you will have room for appetizers and dessert !!!

Love the vibe of this place. One a weekend night, the bar is full of people, drinking, laughing, having a good time. The food are generally good, but there are hits and misses. When I visited there two weeks ago, I had the French onion soup, which is always tasty. For main dish, I had the beef (short rib) Burgundy.... More
