    The food was excellent as always, and our experience overall was very positive. However, our service during this visit had a few unexpected issues. First, our server mentioned that eggnog was a daily special, but failed to tell us its price or give any other indication that the eggnog was alcoholic. We only discovered this because my husband ordered it, expecting just what the server said - eggnog. He was okay with the surprise addition of alcohol, but this would not have worked for me (and would have resulted in a returned drink). Fortunately, I ordered hot chocolate, which was served overflowing with whipped cream but without a spoon. (Our server didn't check back, so after a few minutes my husband had to get up and ask for a spoon at the host station.) Finally, when our quiches were brought to the table, I told the food runner that I had the Quiche Lorraine, and he then set one of the quiches in front of me and set what was supposedly my husband's Lobster Quiche in front of him. We were very hungry and the quiches were very good, so it took us several bites before we realized that the food runner accidentally got our quiches mixed up. We just traded our plates and continued our meal, but a mistake like this could have been really harmful if either of us had a food allergy. Servers/food runners need to be clear on the food items they're delivering and listen to the guests, so that the food is served correctly.

    It was a really busy morning and the service was kind of slow, but special kudos to Josh, was so sweet and attentive and kept us informed. The quiche and french onion soup were delish as usual. We really enjoyed our brunch and loved the festive vibe!

    We’ve been here several times & overall it’s such a fun and tasty restaurant. We always take family here when they visit Richmond. This most recent visit (11/19/22) we definitely noticed the lack of staffing and long wait for service after you’ve sat down. Can Can also consistently runs out of certain things like quiche or popular sandwiches. Every time I’ve come for lunch they have been out of popular menu items. It doesn’t seem like quantities are accurately planned. You cannot come with your heart set on a certain menu item.

    The menu was limited and then some primary entrees were sold out. We had to orders apps to make a meal. We didn’t get what we ordered, they remade 1 dish after I said it wasn’t necessary. Sat near windows, very cold. No heater and restaurant was cold. Overall, it was not fine dining. I won’t be back for some time.

    Can Can remains a solid dining option after many years. The food remains consistent. They have a terrific burger. The French onion soup is top 2 in Richmond. Ambiance still gives a little taste of Paris. The above is why they remain after so many other restaurants have come and gone.

    We took a friend who is not familiar with Richmond. It was a great experience for all of us. Can Can is one of our favorite places to take our friends. The service was top tier. I wish I could remember our server’s name. What I do remember is it was her first day out of training and she is an architecture student. She was a wonderful server. Without question, we will be back.

    What a yummy Sunday brunch at Can Can! Start with a Bloody Mary, mimosa, or French 75 and then enjoy a nice selection from the menu. I do believe the bacon is the best in Richmond.

    Overall, a very nice brunch. Bloody Mary was on point. The eggs in purgatory very tasty and a salmon omelette excellent. Only place they could have improved was in service. While all in all OK, it took her 3 trips to the table to take our drink order and we kind of had to push our food order on her. Food was then slow arriving (we had been there 45 min). Somewhat surprising in a restaurant which appeared to be just over half full. Would still go back, just some areas they could do better.

    We had 5:45 reservations before the 8pm Altria show. At first it seemed like the food was slow to get out but when we mentioned this to our amazing waitress she sped things along nicely. Tables were a little too close together - hard to shimmy in and out - but other than that we had an amazing dinner and will be back!

    It was our anniversary dinner and as we haven't been here for a while, I decided it was time for a return visit. We were seated a little earlier than our reservation, which was great, and David, our waiter was very attentive. We ordered two appetizers, oysters and escargot, (no thought of sharing today!) and my husband ordered the scallops with polenta, and I decided on the following: steak tartare, salmon with beet cream cheese, and romaine lettuce salad. All were excellent and I had some to take home. We won't take so long to return.

    Fun ambiance and delicious French cuisine. Our wait staff was attentive and gave great menu suggestions. We enjoyed the Raw bar Tuna for our first course paired with a delicious French Chablis. The roasted chicken and the Caesar salad with truffle oil and grilled Salmon were savory delights. Shared the Crème Brûlée for dessert and it was perfection. Always a treat to dine at Can Can!

    Love to eat here when passing through Richmond. So disappointed this time around. Floor was filthy, could feel the grit under my shoes. Overhead lights (a key piece of decor here) had multiple bulbs out which made me wonder if they’re cutting corners. Salads (the greens) were just that…a humongous pile (and we ordered the small) of just lettuce with dressing with one oversized crouton on top. Beef Bourguignon was excellent but the New York Steak was very dry and pretty tasteless. Lemon crème brûlée was a big plus. Service was absolutely horrible. Our server had four tables in one small area but it took forever to get some initial soft drinks and bread. While asking her for things she was always looking the other way. Asked for steak sauce and was told they didn’t have any and she didn’t offer an alternative. Asked for the dessert menu and rather than hand it to me, she laid it down in the bread crumbs on the table. Glasses ran dry with no offers of refill. Not sure if we’d return.
