I am a huge French food fanatic! And I have been to France and consider myself a good snob. We are the type of family that shares and picks off of everyone's plates so that's just what we did and did we love everything! The steak, the mussels, fois gras, duck, sea bass, all great choices. I cannot say a... More

They bake and serve 5 different breads. Delicious! Otherwise the steak sandwich was great and the fries were good too. The sprouts and grains salad with salmon was just average. The monte Cristo sandwich was atypical but excellent. We shared the bananas foster for dessert and it was atypical and not as good as ones we've had before. Overall, we... More

OMG what a wonderful experience! I've traveled the world including France, as a soldier and I have to say this was a wonderful surprise in Richmond, VA! The place is bright and charming, service (by Audrey) was top notch and the food was amazing! I had the house Blanc wine to accompany my meal, had the wonderful cheese plate and... More

Enjoy a great meal and friendly service at this Richmond restaurant. If it's warm when you visit, they'll have the huge front windows open to the street for a nice breeze!

We save this one for special occasions - birthdays, anniversaries. Love the electricity in the air here! The food is excellent! Be prepared to be part of the crowd because it's a favorite with many.

Can Can Brasserie is a unique place to visit with French inspired dishes. We have been regulars since 2013. We love the atmosphere, but the customer service the past year has been a challenge especially at the bar. We visited Can Can this Friday just 7 MIN after breakfast time. We realize that they have done with breakfast at 11am... More

After spending most of the day in Richmond, my friend suggested Can Can Brasserie. I'm so glad she did. The French menu was varied and extremely reasonably priced. The food was excellent (I had the quiche & mix greens) and beautifully presented. The Parisian atmosphere made us feel light-hearted, Our server was a little slow and not very attentive, but...

What is it about Can Can? Even French people who know better enjoy its dynamic atmosphere and appealing presentation. What has to be admitted, however, is that the food is good rather than great, and the desserts are more like a Midwestern version of sugar shock than anything authentically French. But all of this seems to melt away under the... More
