Tired of the usual fare along the interstate, we wanted to find a workable neighborhood with a unique restaurant. And we found it here! Cary Street is very inviting with charming shops and restaurants. The highlight was eating at the cancan brasserie. They have a...More

Whenever I am in Richmond with time for lunch or dinner, this is my favorite go-to place. Over the years, I have constantly come back here, enjoying a variety of great food and wine. Since I tend to dine more here for lunch, I admit...More

Astonishingly great food! Amazing place! This restaurant is big with an outdoor seating area, a no wait bar area as well as table service. The servers are young, cheerful, prompt and attentive. The croque monsieur was huge and delicious, my beet salad had the tiniest...More

One of the best restaurants we have been to. It started with the setting, very French in a 1930s landmark shopping center. My apetizer was a pureed liver with a cherry sauce. I remember hating liver when I was a kid, so I thought I...More

I wish I could teleport to Richmond more often to try the many amazing restaurants down there. My wife and I love visiting, but we don't get there nearly as often due to traffic on I-95. The Can Can Brasserie is simply an elegant step...More

Had lunch here with my wife and dachshund (there are two outside seating areas where dogs may accompany you). While the menu read like ladies luncheon food, the portions were man sized and delicious. We could not have asked more from our waiter; he attended...More

It’s a fun atmosphere with Toulouse Lautrec menus and murals. The Trefethem Chardonnay was a welcome surprise (California) and the scallops topped with roe were delicious. The nightly special was just so-so; it sounded much better than it was: chicken wrapped with sopressata and gruyere...More

This is the coolest reproduction of a French Brasserie! Built new to look old and it’s a stunning place. We had delicious mussels and in-house made bread here today during the River City Food Tour of Carytown. Thanks for having us, Can Can!

I thought I reviewed this a long time ago. Can Can is in a great location and has been here for quite a while. But c'mon guys - be "inspired by" another restaurant! Don't copy it exactly unless you own both spots or are 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.
