Stop the madness. The food was off the hook. The barbequed cauliflower was like nothing I have ever tasted. Everything was so tasty and plated perfectly.
Absolutely phenomenal food and wait staff. Mind blowing in fact. What I don't understand is the inconsistency of the person at the host desk requiring mask even though we were more than 6 feet away but then the wait staff was in closer proximity with their masks on and we obviously didn't have to wear masks during dinner. Just more inconsistencies between staff as this current situation has made this the norm everywhere.
But beyond that, the outdoor patio was surprisingly warm and we highly doing the prix fixe menu to share and then also ordering from the regular dinner menue. The beef cheeks were out of this world.
The food was glorious. We are so lucky to have Canon in our lives. Thank you for making this Covid year survivable.
The service here is always outstanding, the food is always tasty, and we always leave happy!
Canon is consistently outstanding. Their new patio space was pandemic friendly while retaining ambiance. The service was excellent from server to host. The food is always the absolute best! We've ordered takeout recently as well and were not disappointed. Looking forward to our next visit.
Great service and amazing food!
Everything was stellar as usual. We ordered wagyu hangar steak, barbecue cauliflower with green tahini, crispy st. louis ribs, and perfect little quince macarons. Great celebration for my husband's 1 year sober birthday. They always treat us well at Canon.
Food and service were exceptional. Canon is probably one of my favorite high end restaurants in Sac. You won't be disappointed ;)
Wow! Great patio with heaters for a cold night. The food was fantastic!! I love the small plates and get to taste lots of treats. Had squash, cauliflower, ribs, salmon, and cod fritters. Couldn’t finish without sampling desert: tamale and cheesecake. So very delicious!!
The service is impeccable and it’s a cool spot. The food is always good but it’s not great, especially for the price.
Eclectic, worldly flavors with a fun twist on everyday favorites. They used seasonal ingredients and the menu is broken down to small plates and platters which is perfect for sharing and trying a variety if things. My husband ordered a cocktail called “The Grand Bazaar” which he absolutely loved.
I took my boyfriend here to celebrate his 30th birthday, and it was incredible. One of the best restaurant experiences I've had ever, but specifically in the context of covid. We were seated outside, which I was initially worried about since it's been getting colder, but Canon provided heat lamps and canvas tent walls that made the temperature completely comfortable, even without a jacket. Our waiter was a darling and had great wine recommendations.
If you're coming with 2 people, I'd recommend coming with an empty stomach. Order three small plates and a platter to share, and you're golden for dinner that evening and lunch the next day.
Loved the awareness of food allergies. I have a few food allergies and it’s nice to know it was simple to order and the food is safe for me to eat.
Our server was extremely helpful
Always a fantastic experience. Great patio. We are only reserving nights out for special places where we feel safe and the experience is great and Canon fits that for sure.
Ambience and customer service was very good. The food was not to my liking.
The small plates are just fabulous! Would definitely return.
Everything was perfect, as usual.
Birthday dinner was great!
Had a great anniversary dinner with amazing wine.
Excellent meal, graciously served. A very interesting selection of wines by the glass from places you normally don't see represented on wine lists. And in the age of Covid, their outdoor dining arrangement is perfect -- effective outdoor heaters, well-spaced tables and plenty of outdoor air circulation.
Hits and misses on the menu. Hits included signature cocktails, roasted cauliflower small plate and squash small plate. Misses were the tater tots and desserts (cheese cake, chocolate mousse) Food temperature was a problem.
Great looking restaurant, but the deep bass coming from the gym sound system next door kind of spoiled the atmosphere (until the gym closed).
Bottom line: if I'm going to spend a lot of money for a celebratory dinner, the quality has to be better than a B-minus.
Beautiful ambiance, wonderful service, delicious food. I can't wait to go back!
Even though we were all socially distanced, it still felt special and intimate.
The food was amazing and service perfect. My only issue was the portions were very a bit small, and hence the one less star on value. My husband I am sure would have left hungry.
Unique and outstanding place to go for a special celebration or really any time!
Don't be put off/concerned about the limited selection and/or items on the menu. The first time we went, we thought "what if anything on this do we want to order", but we asked the server and trusted their advice. It was all great!
Took my ex to celebrate our daughter's upcoming wedding. He absolutely loved it and wondered how I found Canon!! Ordered several small apps and small plates staged just right in excellent service style. Love their concept of food being shared. Recommended for anyone wanting to savor food in ambiance. Thank you.
Multiple generations enjoyed sharing the bread basket, whole chicken, heirloom tomatoe salad and beans. All of the dishes were creatively prepared with delicious spices and sauces. We enjoyed every dish, the interesting cocktails and the delicious cake.
The food is fantastic! We started with the Tower of Tots in Mole Sauce - yummy! We had the blistered beans which had a great corn and lardo sauce and then we followed that with the duck. The waitress told us that the chef is an expert at preparing duck and she was not exaggerating! Definitely a great place for a special occasion.
This was our second dinner at Canon since COVID-19 reopening. We always enjoy dining at Canon, and having the option to dine outdoors makes visiting even more attractive. The service with safety precautions, the ambience, food and wine selection are always wonderful, and the attentiveness and care the staff provide makes one feel welcome and valued.
Great food , great service. Basque style cheesecake was to-die-for! Thanks! Gerry
Great as always. Tried two new dishes that were outstanding, especially the half duck.
great resturant , service and food was fantastic
We had to wait an exceptionally long time just to receive our first drink. Aside from that, everything was great and the food was fabulous!
We love canon. The food is always a treat. We like the Beef Cheeks and the tots. This food is special and very high end in terms of cuisine but the cost is reasonable and I feel special when we go to Canon.
Excellent flavors in every dish, making you yearning for more. Eating every last bit and wiping up every drip of sauce.
The food is very good, you just don’t get much of it! Pricey !
This is a great place to come with a group. There are so many small plates to try and it's fun to order a bunch of things to split. Canon has excellent food, excellent service, excellent drinks...it's one of our favorite spots in Sac.
Always a great meal. Food and service are excellent.
Absolutely delicious, as always! The patio is such a great space and the food was interesting and so good.
The food, atmosphere and service were top notch!! Our new favorite restaurant.
