Michelin Guide rated neighborhood restaurant with creative and shareable cuisine and a year-round patio.

"With a clear vision, a striking aesthetic and distinctive, mouthwatering flavors, Canon restaurant in East Sacramento is a stellar and welcome addition to the city’s dining scene." - 4-Stars, Sacramento Bee

"Find the convivial Canon sequestered away from the downtown bustle. This cool space that contrasts deep tones against bright whites is enveloped by the aromatic smell of smoke, so it’s no surprise that the house is packed most nights. Chef Brad Cecchi is the culinary mastermind and his menu is pivoted around playful small plates." - Michelin Guide

Canon is committed to a healthy and productive workplace. A 4% service fee is added to dine-in bills to help cover the cost of employee health and wellness benefits and to provide a kitchen equity stipend to our back-of-house staff.

    Good food, artfully presented. We ate on the covered patio, which was delightful, despite being at a very small table for 2. Still preferable to the interiors, which seemed to lack adequate ventilation for the open kitchen - walking through the dining room to get to the bathroom, the smell throughout made me question our decision to dine here. Had reservations but the welcome at the door leaves a lot to be desired, hostess should be reassigned. Shout out to Lauren, who was a knowledgable, professional and friendly server. Be sure to try the craft vodka (we did it neat), the natural wine (superb!), and the blistered cherries for desert. Just don't order the tres leche cake if you've every had it anywhere else before, it should be renamed to better reflect whatever it is. Spent 2 hours and $300, and have no regrets.

    Canon is THE BEST restaurant because they excel on all fronts! Most importantly the food is incredible every time. It’s always changing based on seasonality, so you get to go on a new culinary adventure with every visit. The wine list is fantastic too. But something also very noteworthy is their staff - so friendly, so professional. Everything at this restaurant is thoughtful and so well executed. The ambience is very cool and sophisticated. For my husband and I this is always our first pick when we get a night out!

    Very tasty small plates. Ambience was nice and service was good, once it got going. The idea is unique, getting all kinds of things to share. A little disappointed in the large plate. We got the steak and it was tough and really nothing spectacular. Definitely the weakest point of the meal. The desert made up for it though, very tasty.

    The presentation of all the dishes was simply amazing. 5 stars. Our server, Justin; was attentive and caring. 5 stars. Ambiance was great. I love the herb and vegetable garden out front. 5 stars (and I’m jealous. It’s beautiful.) The pea salad was wonderful. 5 stars (except for the raw egg yolk on top-ew.) Neither of us were impressed with our entrees. Fried Whole Branzino and Lamb Pave’. I wish they had a plain old lamb chop vs the overcooked lamb that was like shredded pulled pork. But given that the menu is seasonal, I’m sure we will be back to try other mains. The only other drawback is the price. But hello, COVID, hello great resignation and supply chain woes. Welcome to the new era where EVERY restaurant that survives has to increase prices by 30-50% just to make ends meet. I don’t begrudge them the right to a profit and to pay a fair wage. And again; all the food presentation was amazing. Visually spectacular.

    The food was delicious. The plates are shared, but they way they are plated makes it hard to share. For example, we had the pea shoot salad and the egg was nested in pea puree, the lettuce was arranged in a circle and tangled together which made it difficult to serve. Other than that, food was delicious and service was on point.

    Canon has such an interesting and creative menu. We had a perfectly cooked fried whole branzino with wonderfully subtle Asian flavors. The tamale with huitlacoche was also delightful. The wine list sources bottles from all over the world, and we had an interesting Hungarian furmint that went nicely with the fish. All in all, a very good experience.

    We went to Canon to celebrate a special birthday. A separate dining area was set aside for our party (I hadn’t asked for that, the restaurant just did it). The table was beautiful, the service impeccable and the food was mind blowinging! I cannot say enough good things about Canon, and shout out to Andrew who was absolutely lovely as our waiter! We can’t wait to go back! 💙

    Food pairing are made intelligently, cocktails are made with high quality ingredients, and food comes out staggered so that it’s always fresh. The patio is also fantastic - well covered but still a lot of natural light, with heaters in case it gets cold. I could see sitting out here rain or shine, hot or cold.

    We ordered three dishes to share. Each one was beautiful in presentation, and a delight to taste as well. In particular, the ash roasted carrots and the chicken drumsticks were especially flavorful and delicious. The kale salad was also exemplary; the "mushroom bacon" was an especially tasty component.

    Canon has a shared plate menu. We ordered three items for three of us and were still hungry after we were done. The portions are poor considering the very high prices. We had to order dessert, which was the best part of the meal. We will not be returning to Canon.

    I brought two out-of-town friends to Canon for dinner and they were very impressed. All of our small plates choices were excellent: creatively prepared (what a great exploration of vegetables) and timed just right. We chose the sommelier’s 50 percent off bottle (a French pinot noir), which was a steal for such a lovely bottle of wine. The service was very helpful but not intrusive on our long-time-no-see conversation. The covered patio is one of my favorite places to dine in Sacramento and I was happy to be able to share it with my dear friends.

    Food quality and imaginative dishes have declined over the last few years. Ordered 4 dishes and 3 of the 4 were mediocre and one was good. Pork loin, overcooked. Should have been medium but was solidly well so dry. The pork belly however was excellent but I can also easily smoke my own at home for practically free. Cod was cooked well but overall underwhelming. Potatoes came out barely warm and undercooked. Pea salad was the highlight but only decent. I measure restaurants based on if I feel like I could cook the meal. I concede some of the sauces I couldn’t replicate well, but the main on each dish (except the pea salad, so know I have cooked better). Miss the octopus and the confit and some of the more imaginative dishes.

    Great brunch!! My wife said it was one of the best brunches she’s ever had. Service was exceptional. Lauren has a nice personality and watched over our table during the whole experience. Tasty main courses accompanied by bacon inspired dim sum dishes. Too much food. They did not skimp on anything. Canon is the best!!
