    We kept having to ask for water or utensils or small plates through out the meal. When someone brought food to our table, they would not stay long enough to ask if we needed anything further. When we did catch one of them, they looked less than happy to offer any help.

    We reserved the round table up front so it was much quieter than the main restaurant. Beautiful ambiance and delicious food. I had the spring linguine and others had the salmon and beef Paleron. Everything was delicious and the waiter was attentive and food came out perfect. Our waiter didn’t rush us and was there when we needed another drink or anything. Very pleasant experience.

    The service was not great. Our server was rushing us and just plain odd and juggling so much that we felt hurried and ignored. The food was not good and for what we paid, $130 plus tip, not worth it at all. The steak was dry and tough, the two coffee choices we ordered were water downed and burnt tasting. The scallop dish was just ok. Very disappointed in overall experience and will not come back.

    We were fortunate to have reserved a front table with the windows opened on a beautiful night. Can can’s bright and joyful ambience and delicious wine and interesting food sets them apart. Our waitress was attentive and the chicken, the spring pasta and duck were all delicious. The spring pasta was a beautiful presentation and delicious it was the favorite. We always have a good time when we choose Can Can.

    We’ve always had excellent service at Can Can but this time our server treated our table like an after thought at best. I ordered fruit for the table first and she simply never brought it. It took over ten minutes after our third guest arrived for her to take our order and that was only because I asked directly for our order to be taken. She never asked the third person if she had a drink order. When our soups were served (which were delicious), I asked the food runner about the fruit and so then we got it, though not when I had hoped for earlier. Our waters were never refilled and I had to ask a manager/food runner whether we could have bread instead of having it provided, so we got some after our soups and during the entrees. Two of us received our entrees and it was seven minutes until the third person at our table got hers, meaning our burger and mussels and frites were cold by the time we could eat together. I asked for the burger medium and with no bun but got it rare with a bun. Others at the place (food runners and managers) were fine, but our waitress was cold and indifferent to us. We tipped 20% even though all that accomplished was to send the server the message that she could give extraordinarily wretched service and pay no price for it. I’ve always loved Can Can but am disinclined to come back as it seems to have lost that certain je ne sais quoi.

    The service was five star. Richard is an excellent waiter. But the boulabaise was one star. We dined at CanCan about a month ago and the boulabaise was five star. This time it was one star. Did the chef quit? If the restaurant can't buy the ingredients for boulabaise, take it off the menu.

    Food was good, but service was sub par. Spent 20 min waiting to get first cocktail. Food came out at wrong time. Water not refilled very regularly. Very disorganized. Had to wait a long time to pay bill. Management needs to pay attention to how the wait staff is working.

    The house salad was a bowl of the freshest, most delicious greens, topped with a very light vinaigrette. So simple and so delicious and so huge! I had the mussels as my entrée - almost too many to eat alone, but so tasty. A very simple meal that was absolutely perfect. Including the wine!

    The quiche was huge and thick. It looked like a piece of cake. The French onion soup was a layer of hard cheese and soaked bread. Very hard to find any broth or onion. The waitress was fabulous. It was so loud that we could barely hear her or each other.

    French onion soup had way too many onions at the bottom. The best thing was the strawberry Brie cheese app. Salmon was delicious but Caesar salad was pathetic with uncut Romain lettuce and croutons were not special. Way overpriced for value received for Caesar salad. No one asked about our food after it was served. Scallops were good but for $32 for 7 they should have been phenomenal. Most mediocre for the money overall. Sad to see what COVID has done to Can Can. Hope they can make massive improvements to a long time special place.

    My husband, our friend, and I had lunch at Can Can day before yesterday. I had the moules frites, he had the Roquefort burger, and she, the chopped steak. Everything was perfectly cooked, delicious and generously sized. My moules were large, plump and tender, and they practically fell out of their shells. Without hesitation, they were the best I’ve ever had! Our wines were also superb. I had the Chablis and they the Beaujolais. Aside from the food and wine, the service was also excellent. Your new wait person, Aine, could not have been more accommodating. Kudos on finding her!
