On a recent visit to Can Can, which was once one of my favorite restaurants in Richmond, we had a terrible experience. First, the service was just plain lousy, inattentive, long waits for basics (like water, bread) and surly when questioned. First, they were out...More

We had a party in the back room for our grandsons graduation from University of Richmond. We made reservation a couple months in advance and it was excellent for a large group. They can easily accommodate that number.
