I am from NY and the minute we walked into this restaurant, it reminded me of a place in NYC. The cocktails were awesome, the wine was delicious and food was phenomenal. French onion soup, duck confit crepes, lobster quiche...do I need to say more. Just get in your car and go now. We will be back for sure!

We've had both brunch and dinner at this restaurant and we enjoyed it both times. Will definitely go back & recommend it to others. Eclectic menu with a flair.

Went there for a birthday lunch. Service was good - the food was "under-whelming". I had heard good things about the food but I wasn't impressed - don't think I would go back.

My hubs took me here for my birthday. I wanted a francais rendez-vous. The experience was wonderful. It's an interesting place with lovely decorations. Friendly staff. We had a platter of melon, pate, and olives for starters. Dinner was the salmon and the braised lamb. Both were awesome...fresh and tender, colorful and well presented. Desserts were pastry puffs with ice... More

This is one of our favorite places to visit and bring visitors to Richmond. The energy, the crowd, the atmosphere and the food are a great combination for a long meal. French onion soup is a go-to favorite, along with any of the salads. It can get loud, but i think it makes you feel part of something bigger.

We have been dining here for years. It used to be a great experience but as of late its going down hill. Sloppy service and food that had gone down in quality. Its a good place that used to be great.

We attended the French Film Festival and went to the Can Can 3 out of 4 nights -- mainly because it was close to the Byrd Theater where the films were shown. It's a great atmosphere -- feels like you're in France. The escargots were the best (and least expensive) we've had in the states in a long time. .... More

Great bar area where you can get oysters on half shell. Had last night, served on bed of ice with two different dipping sauces and horseradish. Had with lovely Sancerre. No crackers though, which would have been nice.
