"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

Food was a bit underwhelming this time, burrata dish very muddled, not many vegetable options, menu felt a little un-cohesive.
Chicken legs were outstanding. Ambiance and service great.
As always, service and food exceptional.
Canon is special and provides a wonderful dining experience. Loved dining with friends in the outdoor patio. Service was friendly and helpful, and unhurried. Server did a great job spacing the different dishes. The food was excellent. We had 7 or 8 different dishes and each was wonderful. Eating family style definitely increases the enjoyment of the experience, tasting so many different dishes. Highly recommend for a special occasion.
Great service, amazing cocktails and food, very nice ambiance. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her bday dinner.
Amazing experience and worth every penny. The staff was helpful in picking portions for the table which was so kind as we would have definitely ordered too much! The food was delicious, meat cooked perfectly, and cocktails were decadent. Don’t skip out on the beverages! Hope to go back soon to try new things and have another great evening with Canon.
Everything on the menu was delicious. Small menu, but what they make the make superbly.
Very unusual menu but the food was very tasty, the service was excellent and the ambiance was very nice sitting outside
Great service. Excellent atmosphere. Our server was great. Really nice selection. The tuna was fantastic and there are great specialty drinks too.
They are worth the recognition. Great place with delicious revolving menu according to seasonal ingredients . Dessert menu is a little lacking but will definitely come back.
11/10 to be honest. Definitely coming back
Best in Sacramento, enjoyed the service quality of food and distinct flavors. The ambience was energetic.
We has a summer dinner for four on the patio and it was just delightful. Excellent food and top-notch service.
Delicious food. Beautiful presentation. Excellent service. Can’t wait to go back!
The food was good, not overly great or anything. The service was fine, nothing poor, nothing to write home about either. Having been to similar eateries in this area, this was overpriced from drinks to dessert.
This was our first time at Canon and we were not let down! The cocktails are creative and very tasty. We split 5 small plates and were extremely happy with everything we ate. Our server was on point and very attentive but not overbearing. Highly recommend!!!
Everything we ordered was consumed down to the sauces! Some in the party wanted to return and order a sharable plate for themselves since it was sooo good! Waitstaff was awesome - made my son's 25th birthday a hit! It is a first experience for all in our party and everyone from my 89 year old mom to the 20 yr old in the group loved each dish. We will certainly return!
Imaginative and delicious food. Excellent service. As always.
The food was wonderful and the service was exceptional! Looking forward to going back.
60th birthday party! Had a wonderful time. Thank you!!
Something for everyone on the menu! The tots with the mole sauce, the tomato watermelon salad, burrata and grilled peaches, chicken drumstick lollipops, New York steak with squash blossoms, peanut butter truffles and S'mores cake.
Every flavor combination was perfection.
We had a lovely experience at Canon. The service was wonderful. Our server had a great knowledge of the spirits offered within house and she answered our questions easily. The flavors of the meal were exciting on the palate, and the libations were refreshing and well balanced. Great wine selection. It truly was an unexpected overall experience. We get like we were back home in SF. Thank you so much! We will be coming back again.
Amazing Anniversary experience! Food, service and ambiance is superb!
Nice family dinner spot. Excellent food ! Different wine list - not great but adequate ordered a glass of red that was way too cold to enjoy. Wonderful waitress - nice setting. although the misters are nice - you get a little steer than expected …
Delicious thoughtful and inventive seasonal food with exceptional and attentive service
Our dining experience at Canon was distinctive and exceptional. The style of service includes quick bites, small plates and platters all meant to be shared. We ordered tots and smoked cheddar biscuits, roasted pear salad and pork belly chop as well as the half duck platter. All were presented beautifully and full of interesting and complex flavors. They also have a custom cocktail menu including unique ingredients like carrot Eau de Vie. Dessert was a s’more cake complete with toasted marshmallows on top. Servers were personable and informative and the patio was comfortable.
I am never disappointed with this restaurant. Ever since the soft opening, I have been hooked! Flavors are artfully paired and created in ways you wouldn’t have thought—you take a bite and it’s perfect. Ambiance is lovely indoors and outdoors. Service is very good. Inside it can be loud. Drinks and cocktails are outstanding. Great for any occasion.
Took my wife out for date night. Everything was perfect. What I mean by perfect is everything was timed to the second. Drinks, diner and dessert all came out in perfect timing one right after the other. The service was out of this world. dessert was amazing as well definitely recommend for a intimate night out.
The appetizers and "small plate" options were all a great delight! Everything was delicious and surprisingly unique. We'd recommend Canon to our friends for sure.
A good time all around!
Everything was delicious! Every item was unique, creative and amazing. It’s been a long time since we ate at Canon because of Covid. We ate outside and felt very safe. We will return very soon!
Nice spacious patio dining dining with great tapas and very gid service
Chicken was ok. Because the small plates were all similar in spice, was too much of the same. Steak was good,
What an experience. We loved the idea of the family style, sharing. Our server was really fantastic in helping us understand all the questions we had for her. All the food dishes we chose were amazing. The ambiance was quaint and clean. Cant wait to come back.
I had already heard many great things about the food there and I was not disappointed. The staff went over the top to make sure that the dining experience was memorable and they succeeded!
Everything about Canon is great. The food is original, local and interesting. The service is excellent. The drinks are fun and well made. This is one of Sacramento's best restaurants.
Absolutely fabulous! We will be back
Went for a birthday. Bartender threw together a custom cocktail for my partner which she loved. Lots of good vegetarian and vegan options – and a delicious burger on the "secret" menu.
From the moment we walked in we knew it was going to be a great experience. The food and the service was phenomenal. The atmosphere was super relaxing. We loved being able to watch what was going on in the kitchen while we waited for our food.
Our first time dining experience was memorable. The service was excellent. The wait staff was attentive. We had the duck and steak entrees. The duck was very tasty and very lean. The steak was cooked to perfection with just the correct amount of seasonings. Overall, we enjoyed the dinner.
Had a wonderful
