Out of four dishes the rack of lamb was really good but the sides and appetizers lacked a coherent flavor.

It is a good restaurant with a somewhat interesting menu. I go there occasionally because of convenience, but there are many other restaurants in the Richmond area that I prefer.

One of our favorite restaurants however the onion soup was not as good as it has been in the past. Love baked cheese on it and requested extra. However, the cheese was mixed into the soup.

Nothing else like Can Can in Richmond. Since we can't yet travel to Paris, Can Can is the next best thing.

Very good salad, wonderful appetizer, entree was good but not as interesting as the salad and appetizer. We did order a French standard though...so that may be why. VERY knowledgeable wait staff, and drinks were great. Very good initial visit, we will be back. The Mille feuille was superb as well.

The service was impeccable. My friend had the onion soup and quiche of the day. She said they were very good. I ordered the caesar salad and it was one of the worst i'v ever had. We also had the beef tartar which was excellent. Included with our meal was a bottle of wine and 3 large french press coffees. We were there for almost 5 hours. Such an enjoyable day.

My niece had the oysters which were perfect with the various dips. She is a Mac and Cheese aficionado and said yours was good but not outstanding. I crave a burger every once in awhile and will only have this at quality restaurants. This one was far to large and kind of bland. I ordered the gruyere cheese, but was given the cheddar. As cheddar was my second choice and I wanted to eat with my niece, I felt no need to send it back. I have taken friends and family here many times and we shall return. This was the first time that I felt a little underwhelmed by the food. Your staff was polite and just the perfect blend of attentive and helpful without being overbearing.

CanCan has always been our 'go-to' for great food, wonderful wine, and super ambience. A bit subdued with the restricted capacity... but that made for a lovely get-together with dear friends in a very safe environment. Same great food & beverages and super service.
Thank you CanCan for helping us return to normalcy!

Asked to sit in front window section which was a mistake because of the cold evening. Eventually we moved to a warmer area.

Surprised that the house wines were Italian - and not very good - get back to French for the house

However, the food, service, and ambience was as expected

The question ? Is how likely are you to recommmend X to a friend? It is not a yes or no question.. it is a question about intention, advocacy and engagement! The book is called ‘the ultimate question’! Here’s my answer ... I am highly likely to (i.e. I intend , actually alreadly have) recommend Can Can to a friend! Moules frites excellent, beet salad excellent, nice French red wine excellent, service excellent!

It's easy to forget about places that have been around for several years, but there's a reason they are still operating and CAN CAN is one of them. Impeccable service, notably the Wine Steward, fresh interesting food all while feeling you're not in RVA but someplace much more exotic. Wonderful lunch. Great experience!

Can Can was outstanding as usual. I had the beet salad with grilled chicken and the other party has the lobster quiche.
the bread was outstanding as usual.
I will continue to go back and enjoy it over and over.

Had an anniversary date night at Can Can and all I can say is a WOW. I’m a semi-regular there, going every other week or so but Bill, our server, made this night fantastic. He was attentive, friendly, and even helped us concoct the most fantastic meal for us! He selected perfect wine pairings for each course and overall just made this night magical. Thank you Bill! Also, GET THE TUNA! It’s a new favorite.

I love can can, been there several times and never had a complaint, however, I ordered escargot, which is one of my favorites and escargot should be doing the backstroke in butter. It was just missing that extra richness that comes with a pond of butter. Other than that it was awesome, as always.

We are from out-of-town, and when in Richmond, can’t mias the opportunity to eat at Can Can. The beef tartare is my absolute favorite, and my husband loves the croque madame. It was delicious, as usual.
