We went to watch the Dodger game and eat some great Pozole and mushroom enchiladas! The service was phenomenal as were the food and drinks! The pozole was outstanding ! The watermelon cucumber / mint cocktail was so refreshing and delicious! Our server I believe attentive and provided excellent service. We would definitely go back!
The flautas were amazing!! I’ll be eating here again the next time we visit 😁
Wanted to try a Mexican Restaurant while in Vegas and choose Canonita. Food was good, portions were huge, drinks were very good. We have a great server, very attentive. Cool location.
The restaurant setting is beautiful, the staff is amazing, but unfortunately I didn’t like the food.
The food was great. I loved the Guacamole. I ordered Beef Enchiladas for brunch, and it was good. TheChurros for dessert was warm and crunchy.
Our server Carlos was knowledgeable and professional. We enjoyed our dinner.
Food and drinks were delicious. A little tucked away in vinitian casino so give yourself plenty of time to get there.
We were looking for a special place to enjoy our 40th anniversary and Canonita was perfect in every way!! Located in the Venetian overlooking the Gondola ride the atmosphere was very romantic. Add to that superb food and excellent service! Our server, Javier was excellent and offered great recommendations and also took our picture! We highly recommend it and ask for Javier!
Food was not tasty:( margaritas are delicious though.
Great experience, loved the food. And the location is perfect. Cam, our server, was amazing and very attentive. Would 100% recommend this place.
Armondo was the real MVP and was the best part of our trip there. He was an excellent server/ bartender while helping us pick out our best menu options. A great spot for brunch at the Venetian and a great bottomless mimosa bar !!!
Our waitress was so amazing she made our night.
I found a hair in my food otherwise it was nice portions kind of small
Awesome food on the canals of the venitian great atmosphere
Awesome food! Attentive service. Great atmosphere. Will be back!
Best place to eat in vegas! Great service and food!
Had I great time! Food was delish... the view of the canal in the restaurant was spectacular!!! I highly recommend it for a brunch date. Had a great server and talk about the bottomless mimosas!!!
Service was excellent! Our waitress so attentive and made my Birthday breakfast extra special. Thank you
We were excited to try this place, but I have to say it was just average. We went for an early brunch, there was no wait. There were not a lot of people in the restaurant, the food took forever to come out. I have to say the crabcakes are amazing, probably the best I’ve ever had. The rest of the food though, not so much. Not really what I expected for Vegas.
Our server was nice, but there was nothing that really stood out for me to say that it was amazing service.
The food was delicious. Great service as well!
Never had it before decide to go on a whim. Super worth the money.
Food was great! Customer service was wonderful. If you are looking for Mexican food I would definitely recommend. The pozole was wonderful. It is hard to find great tasting pozole and this one did it for us. Overall wonderful experience
Great spot for eating and enjoying a relaxing meal. The food is outstanding and delicious. Don't forget desert especially "tres leches"!
Service was great. Will come again!
We were seated along the indoor gondola ride, service was exceptional along with the food..really enjoyed the margate flight!

We’ve been to this Mex many many times. Not sure if I should comment on the staff or the margaritas first?! I’ll start with the staff... we generally sit at the bar. The bar staff is bend over backwards accommodating. The Canonita margarita is top shelf no pun intended. My husband and I travel a lot and visit Vegas often and Canonita is a regular for us and it never disappoints!
We came here to celebrate our 1st wedding anniversary and they made the visit special with some Churros. We enjoyed it very much and will definitely be coming back!
Excellent flavor and fun mix of textures. The atmosphere is nice and relaxing, by the canal within the Venetian.
Food was overly stuffy. Drinks were not refilled. It was difficult to catch the overly busy waiter. Prices super high.
GREAT FOOD AND GREAT SERVICE. AMBIANCE A LITTLE LACKING. CLASSIC ITALIAN MUSIC PLAYING WOULD BE MUCH BETTER!
The service was great ! Food was delicious and the place is very cute !
The food was the best food I have ever tasted and our waitress Sara was the best I have ever come across . We stayed at the Venetian 2 nights and ate dinner here both nights
Alejandro was great! Really nice and friendly!
Our waitress was amazing! So kind and attentive. Thank you Sarah!
Had a lovely dinner for my bf birthday on September 17th. food excellent, service was excellent. our waitress Laura was amazing she made our experience wonderful!!! will def return when in Vegas!
Delicious food and enjoyed listening too The gondoliers singing. The portions are generous, glad we split an entree. The churros with ice cream were fabulous!
Our serve Laura was the best! We’ve been coming jere for years and she went out of her way to welcome us back and enjoy our dining experience!
Flight of Mojitos was great, solid bartenders and cocktails. Alex was extremely accommodating and excellent at providing service. He’s just an all around awesome dude!
Went there for my husband’s birthday. Alex and Rafael were great servers. They were very professional and attentive. The manager Kathy made sure we’ve had a great experience and were satisfied with their food and service. We highly recommend this restaurant.
Nothing especial than any other mexican restaurant
The Barbacoa is very sweet and the Beans too salty
Taco sampler no coments
Mussels are delicious but very difficult to eat from the plate onthe top.
The Margaritas it was very sweet
they need to balance the cocktails
