We tried Can Can twice cause the food was actually alright the first time we went - but what a dirty and unorganized place.. Don't touch the table - you might stick.. The water that they poured was super dirty and the service - first non-existing, then checking on is every 30 seconds... a shame cause the place has a... More

The Mrs. and I celebrated our wedding anniversary at this wonderful bistro style place for the second straight year. We will be coming back for more. We arrived famished in the late afternoon, so started out with a cheese plate which included a delicious house-made pate and fruit compote. The Mrs had the duck confit crepes and I the steak...

This is THE place in Richmond. Delicious food, crazy cheap for what you get. But its the decor that makes the place. A perfect Parisian bistro. The warmest, most buttery light you will ever find- this place is pure Romance, I'd live in this place if I could. A never miss when in Richmond. Perfect for dinner, lunch or breakfast.

We ate lunch here on a dreary, rainy Monday afternoon. Our mood rapidly changed as soon as our waiter approached our table. He was absolutely delightful and very knowledgeable about the menu. Our husbands had questions about the Craft beers and both men were pleased with their selection. My mimosa was delicious as was my friend's Bloody Mary. Can Can... More

Delicious and creatively prepared food. Excellent service. The fried oyster appetizer was outstanding and with enough oysters to share. Beet salad was also very good.

Helpful staff, French bistro fare, amazing fries and the most exquisite hamburger I've had in a very long time. Great for groups, families with noisy young children and solo diners looking for someplace friendly. Not romantic or a place to have a serious business conversation.

Visited this place on an unusually warm February afternoon. Beautiful outside, beautiful inside. I found the place noisy, not bad, just not my experience in European restaurants. Maybe it was the mimosas that kept passing by our table. I had Steak and Fries. Meat was good, fries were not to my taste. I like them crisp, these were softer, not... More

Have been to cancan many times over a decade, on dates, with family, and with kids. The atmosphere is wonderful and gives a cosmopolitan vibe. Service is consistently great. Almost everything I've had there has been delicious - they pay a lot of attention to seasonal items and the presentations are always beautiful.

Can Can is a treat in Carytown. The patio is great for people watching and sunshine on pretty days. You do feel like you are in Paris, except people aren't smoking! Big windows, big bar and cozy seating. Super broad menu for everyone, I have enjoyed every single visit which have been over 20. Brunch is my favorite, but just... More
