This place was crowded & noisy but we got seated immediately at a little table near the back of the restaurant. We both ordered the potato soup, and it was unlike any potato soup I'd ever had -it was a thin soup, actually green (I'm not sure why it was green) with little thin bacon strips on top. This must...

We have been enjoying the lively, fun atmosphere here for several years. The food has never been spectacular, but in the past 2 years it seems to have slipped further.

Impeccable service, wonderful and imaginative menu, terrific ambience but a little pricey. The view of the bar alone is worth the trip.

Just wanted to grab a bite to eat for lunch, and came across Can Can by accident! What a nice surprise! Good food, great service, and some of the best bread (they bake it onsite). If you are in Carytown, don't miss it! I had a soft shell crab sandwich-delicious!

I had to come here for a work meeting and enjoyed my time here. I personally did not care for what I ordered because I thought it was rather bland. I ordered the oatmeal, which left a lot to be desired. It was good quality, but the texture was a bit too slimy for my preference. It also had little... More

My wife and I did not want a big meal so we split a salad and the grilled tuna. They served them to us split and nicely presented on separate plates. Quick and pleasant even though it was a busy night. The beet salad was great and the grilled tuna on a bed of vegetables--all cooked perfectly-- was divine.

Took my 88 year old father to this hip spot in Carytown. Always busy, loud and fun. The food is consistently very good as well as the staff attentive and knowledgeable. Good bar too.

Overall the food was decent but the service was terrible. The waiter forgot we were there or something and we did not get wine until my entree was served. It was a very fussy price for not so fancy service or dinner. My trout was advertised as crispy but it was limp. The best overall were the white beans on... More

We visited the Carytown section of Richmond and stopped for lunch at the Can Can Brasserie. Their menu has a French flair with a large variety of selections. I had a soft shell crab BLT sandwich with a side of roasted beer salad both which were very good. They also have a great selection of French wines. The Sancerre was... More

I recently stopped in for breakfast. The food was superior. The muffins, croissants are OUTSTANDING. Our service was a bit bumpy our food came before our drinks. After 15 minutes we asked again for our drinks. Then I received 2 which was great. This is a wonderful stop for a leisurely breakfast.
