Can Can Brasserie

Richmond, 3120 W Cary St, Richmond, VA 23221, United States

Can Can is a French brasserie and bakery in Cary Court Shopping Center. Situated in the eastern wing of Richmond’s oldest operating shopping center, Can Can was constructed to look and feel as if it has been lifted from the left bank of Paris (circa 1900) and dropped into the heart of Carytown. The idea for the restaurant derives from the classic notions of brasserie, which originally indicated an establishment that served beer, but grew to reflect grand café restaurants specializing in traditionally inspired French foods that can be cooked quickly. With seating for over 140 in the main dining room, an Art Nouveau inspired private dining room that seats up to 60 guests or over 100 for cocktails, and a full-service bakery and pastry kitchen supplying all of its breads, pastries, and desserts, the restaurant’s versatility should provide the area an array of options and events.

Can Can provides nonstop service morning, noon, and night and looks to give the local neighborhood, businesses, and Richmond visitors, a home away from home, an office away from the office, a place of refuge, or a stage for celebrating with friends.


Exceptional everything. Don't think for a minute that you're going to just show up and get a table, place is always packed and reservations made well in advance are highly recommended.

Can Can cocktails, food, and above all, the service are always fantastic. Enjoy the experience every time I’m there.

Best French onion soup I've tasted. The espresso martini is amazing. The atmosphere is unique and a valiant attempt to transport you to a French cafe where everyone is fluent in English

Great place. Food and service were fantastic! The restaurant is finely appointment. When it is crowded, the high ceiling and hard surfaces make it difficult to hear one another.

Had heard great things about their French onion soup, and it did not disappoint. Had lunch with my daughter and we both thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

Alexis was just wonderful. Really genuine and made us feel at home while remaining tentative to the guests around us. Happy hour food was amazing. Super fresh tasty oysters. Great deal on the sandwiches. Fresh fries were amazing as always. Hope you guys can get some Vanderghinste oud bruin one of these days. We'll be back very soon.

Authentic French onion soup. Wonderful service (Ellie was awesome). Perfect night out for the veg and carnivore couple.

We stopped by for drinks on Friday night. We were warmly welcomed and promptly seated. Enjoyed one of their specialty cocktails and unique Parisian atmosphere.

In my opinion one of the best restaurants in RVA. In the photos ‘boeuf bourguignon’ and ‘damn, that’s crazy’

First time eating here. The food was amazing. Atmosphere was beautiful. Service was impeccable. We definitely will come back this time for breakfast

Gotta love this brasserie. It's location is great. While there can be a very long wait for a table, just be patient, it will be worth the wait. Wander over to the candy shop in the strip mall next to Can Can and be the "kid in the candy store". The restaurant is lively, the food was great, the service was super (even a little slow) to give you plenty of time to absorb your food and the ambiance. And do go into the ladies room. I fell in love with the faucets and wanted to bring them home!

One of my absolute favorite places to frequent in Richmond! Partner and I have been for brunch multiple times in the past couple months and are excited to have my birthday brunch here with family tomorrow! Been coming here for about 15 years now and will be a customer as long as they are around. Incredible atmosphere, food, and service every time. If you're going for brunch be sure to get a latte and beignets!

Went here for a celebratory dinner and it was AMAZING‼️The food was amazing and our server was just the sweetest person!

I visit almost every time I'm in Richmond! Love the atmosphere and the food. It's the only place I've found that reminds me of my time in Paris.

Really good service and an enjoyable setting. The food was... fine. I had the Monte Cristo sandwich. Guess I am just a classic Monte Ctisto kind of person. Having the chicken confit in there was different but to me not better. If I go back I won't order that again. My wife had the pancakes and was not overly impressed. Said they were just kind of there.

Again, the wait staff was great.

I adore this restaurant. It is a gem to dine at. The atmosphere is unique with the early 1900s French vibe, and the food is amazingly delicious. I have never had a bad experience here. They bring different breads to the table that are freshly baked, and my favorite sample I've had is the pistachio and apricot one. I prefer brunch over lunch or dinner, but they only serve it on Sundays. My sister also says that they serve the best French onion soup she's had. I make sure to come here during my birthday every year.

We sat at the bar for Sunday brunch. The bartenders are fantastic. A good variety of drink options with a classic presentation. Food quality and flavor was excellent. Perfect brunch spot but I strongly recommend getting a reservation because the restaurant fills up quickly.

You can't go wrong when you choose this French brasserie. It has been a favorite of mine since college. I always make a pitstop here to get their fantastic pastries!

Absolutely beautiful restaurant! Super friendly (and stylish) staff. I was in Richmond for a very short time but made sure to go back for brunch before I left... Monte Cristo was delicious!
