Good food and atmosphere
We got seated promptly by the canal for a great view. Host was very good and knowledgeable. The pan roasted mussels were terrific! Excellent margaritas too. Service was quick. No complaints at all.

Great margarita's. Must get
Great margarita's. Must get the guacomole, it is fresh and appropriately spiced. The kitchen was low on brining corn bread but they more than made up for it by providing a tamale, and free desert. They know how to take care of thier customers.

Mexican food rich in flavor!
My husband and I used Open Table to find this little gem of a Restaurant.
Our original plans for the evening were to attend a show. Sadly we had to
leave the show due to it not being what we had thought it would be.
Our evening turned out to be amazing! The food is fresh and full of flavor.
The service is excellent!
The location of the restaurant is perfect. We enjoyed watching the
gondolas as the passed by our table and of course listening to the
We will most definitely return!

Great food and fabulous margaritas!
Great food and fabulous margaritas! Service was slow and unattentive but the company made up for it! Seems like with as many people they had to serve, they couldn't keep up with it. But overall great scene next to gondolas and I keep going back for the food and drinks every Vegas trip!

Fantastic food (I had the Barbacoa) - Service was fast, friendly and the ambiance is great (Palazzo shops right at the end of the Gondola canal). Definitely would come again.

Don't skip the margaritas
Everyone in our party really enjoyed the food! Margarita's were also very good. Nice location in the Venetian. Our server Daniel did and excellent job.

Canonita is perfectly positioned
Canonita is perfectly positioned overlooking the canal at Venetian. Their food and drinks are a few steps up from your typical full service Mexican restaurant. My entire party enjoyed the atmosphere, food, and service.

scenic view is an understatement
scenic view is an understatement !!!! probably the best view on the canal the service was great and the food was good. Oaxacan food is very colorful and flavorful.

wifes birthday dinner
I ordered the barbacoa and I was very pleased. Loads of flavor! I don't really under stand why the chips and salsa are not free. The food,and the atmosphere were great. Our waiter was Mario when he,did come around he was cool. And thanks for the piece of birthday cake for my wife's birthday that,made her very happy.

Canonita was a very nice Mexican
Canonita was a very nice Mexican place in Las Vegas. Found it through OpenTable and am glad I found it. Food was great.

Great food, ok service
We arrive and were told we were early and that we'd be called when our table was ready. 15 mins after our reservation time I checked on our status and was told our table was being cleared. 5 mins after that I was told they were waiting for our table to pay and leave. They eventually set up a table for us in the entranceway (I believe they forgot about us).
After that things did turn around. The hostess was very apologetic and brought chips & salsa to the table immediately. The food really was wonderful. Authentic, tasty and well worth the wait. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of food, especially given the reasonable price! We wished for a better table/view but otherwise it was a great meal.

Margarita's are GREAT and the food is right up there too!

I picked this restaurant to celebrate my birthday while in Vegas. Our waiter Jesus was OUTSTANDING. We had a mixed group of Spanish speaking people and we had so much fun with him.
Service was great.
And the food was just as good!!

Perfect spot for a quick bite
Perfect spot for a quick bite or romantic dinner. Great atmosphere alongside the canal inside the Venetian Las Vegas. Great prices, good Mexican food and good service. Happy hour specials on drinks before 6PM.

Fantastic take on Mexican
The menu was loaded with items we all wanted to dig into. Four of us ordered different plates, and all of us insisted our's was the best. How often does that happen? Same with drinks, the sangria was perfect, and the Pineapple Infusion tequila drink I could have lost my mind on. For the quality of food, and the fact that it's on the Strip on the canal in Venetian, it's just hard to beat for the money. If you want to break away from the flood of steak/seafood and asian themed restaurants in the area, you have to give this place a go.

We dine here at least once every time we go to Vegas. This time we started with the duck empanadas, which were amazing. For dinner, I had the Santa Rosa barbacoa, which was a large portion of tender and flavorful pork served with cilantro rice, black beans, and corn tortillas. My husband had a delicious chicken burrito. Margaritas are fantastic. Service is generally friendly but not exactly prompt.

Great pork carnitas!
My wife and I dined at Canonita the other night and the food was great, especially the pork carnitas! Ambiance was good as we got a table by the water, drinks were interesting (I had a jalapeño infused margarita) and reasonably priced! Loved the salsa and guac...
I'd definitely eat there again!

Excellent diner date restaurant!
Went out a dinner date with my honey of 4 years. Wanted to go somewhere nice as we dont get to enjoy each others company as much as we would like. Heard about this restaurant through a good friend of mine which left me with high expectations. We were seated right next to the gondolas as I had requested. The night was magical and food was better than anticipated. While dining a nice couple sitting a couple tables away from us came over to our table and offered us two tickets on the gondolas. Will never forget that night. Thank you to the generous lady we had a blast!

Ok food, lame margarita by canal
The hostess was pretty rushed, tired and not so eager to Kay attention. After that bad start we were attended by much nicer waitress who served with smile. Food was ok ok but the location is great as you can grab table right by canal.
I took their Classic Margarita which was like 50% line juice 49% sugar and 1% alcohol. Pretty lame!!!

A little hard to find in the middle of the shops at the Venetian, this place was definitely worth trying to track down. We go to Vegas at least once a year and have never tried or heard of this restaurant before. We are just upset that we did not know about it sooner. Great authentic tastes and killer drinks. Located on the inside canal, this is a place we will return to again and again.

Excellent Dinning Expireance
The outdoor setting is great as well as the food and service.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Nice place in Venice
Sat right on the canal. It was unique and added some fun to the dinner. Easy to talk and enjoy better than expected Mexican food.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Contrary to some reviews I read on Open Table, my daughter and I were pleased with our experience. The food was very tasty, drinks were good, service was quick although we ate early so as to attend a show.. Guacamole was especially good. Being charged for chips and salsa did not seem unreasonable for dining canalside at an upscale Casino like the Venetian.
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Upscale Mexican on the Canal
Nice tables on the Grand Canal at the Venetian. Ask for a table on the canal for entertaining views of the gondolas.

BEST MARGARITAS EVER
So the margaritas are advertised as the best in the city (and at $14/per, they should be!) - but seriously, they really are fantastic! Tried the classic (STRONG flavor!) , the jalapeno/cilantro (a suprising kick in the mouth, but seriously delicious!), and the pineapple (they instill the tequila with pineapple! Sweeter than the original). Superb. Would go back for another in a heartbeat. The food is super good too, almost TOO much flavor - you find yourself craving more chips just to break up the intensity. MUST TRY THE GUAC.

Great food and service
Excellent food, the waiter definately knew his stuff and could answer all questions. Nice, efficient, friendly service and the food was great. Happy hour cocktails at $5 each and very strong.

Fantastic Mexican Restaurant
This restaurant has fantastic food and drinks. I would recommend to everyone.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We eat here every year when we visit Vegas. The food is good and not your typical Mexican food. The salsa, queso and tacos are full of flavor. Plus, it's right on the indoor canal, so the ambiance is great.

Great food, very reminiscent
Great food, very reminiscent of Mexico City (the Tortilla Soup is a must-have) .. and a fantastic location, too - right next to the Venetian canal. Our server was very attentive, and took excellent care of us.
