Manager said cold and raw is how they cook the hamburger. Asked for it to be reheated, and it came back still raw. After a few bites, the birthday girl threw up half the night. Arrogant manager. Expensive food not worth the money.

Only had drinks which were good. They didn't serve food until after 5 so we decided to eat somewhere else. Staff was very friendly.

I have been to Can Can on multiple occasions, and it's always been wonderful. This time was no exception. We took our newborn for the first time, and it was welcomed, which was great. We started with the onion soup gratine and warmed brie, had...More

We like Can Can for both lunch and dinner. This visit they were a little off their game. Just not quite as good as previous visits. A little burnt taste to the onion soup, late bread service, seemly more limited sandwich choices for lunch.

Always great food with excellent service. Seafood is a particular favorite as well as their soups. French specialties are great.

Can Can was on our dining list and we finally made a visit this past weekend. We had reservations and were promptly seated when we arrived. The menu has a French twist to it so we had to ask the waitress for explanations. I did...More

Can Can has a very similar atmosphere of the French brasseries of Lyon or Paris... when I come to Can Can, I like to sit at the bar, order a cider and eat some antipasti, a sort of aperitivo ritual. Service is good, sometimes a...More

Can Can DOES offer a kid's menu! Les Enfants! I have taken my granddaughter there several times. The fresh fruit is a healthier alternative to the frites, (but the frites are great also). The grilled cheese is a favorite... More

We had a party in the back room for our grandsons graduation from University of Richmond. We made reservation a couple months in advance and it was excellent for a large group. They can easily accommodate that number.
