Expected something different when ordering New York asada. Salsa was good. Guc was not very good. Guc is expensive.
Food was great, drinks were great, Carlos was hands down the best service we experienced all week.
The location is fun with the Gondolas going by. Our server Niko was sweet. The food however was very bland from start to finish & my drink was awful. I’m not sure how you mess up a vodka tonic with a splash of cranberry but they managed.
Loved the margaritas!!! Guacamole was super fresh and delicious!!!
Went there for Sunday brunch. Knowing that they had unlimited mimosas and what looked to be good Mexican food. Did not disappoint. Roberto our server was unbelievable. He had the best timing and literally kept bringing the Mamosa‘s as we were ready for them. I had the cheese enchiladas with scrambled eggs which were amazing and had a nice kick. The crab appetizer was great as was the churros. Definitely a great place to come, nice view along the canal and in my opinion a great value.
Great food service was excellent definitely will be returning
Good experience, but not great. Enjoyed the view of the canal and gondola riders.
Wonderful!! We loved the food and the service was exceptional!! We never get dessert but got it then had to order a 2nd to take back up to our room!
Great ending to first day of 2022. Little loud, but was quite busy. Margarita flight is a must as well as guacamole and salsa
Service was terribly slow and inattentive. We ordered drinks and guacamole to start - the guacamole came out relatively quickly but the drinks took more than 20 minutes. We ordered mains when the guacamole arrived and it took about 45 minutes. The waiter apologized and said the kitchen was backed up yet we saw several other tables who arrived after us, also had appetizers and mains, who finished and left before we received our mains. When the mains arrived, one was barely lukewarm. To her credit, the manager apologized and took it off the bill but by that point the damage was done. We would not return.
No había Diet Coke, el servicio súper LENTO. Hemos comido en el pasado en La Cañonita y había sido buena experiencia.
En esta ocasión es un lugar NO recomendable.
Cañonita exceeded our expectations! Great service and the food is divine!
Lovely food and good atmosphere. Staff really friendly
Great location next to the grand canal!! Recommend getting a table next to the canal if possible. Food was good but the frozen margarita was far better!!
The San Luis Chili Rianlo is like no other! Simply delicious and highly recommended!
Anniversary- and New Years celebration. Was awesome experience with a pitcher of Margaritas and fabulous service by Zumi a chinese National working as our waiter at the most fabulous Mexican restaurant in Las Vegas. The chips and salsa were delicious along with pucante salsa and fresh made guacamole dip. We saw the young and old couples strolling in their gondola rides and reminisced about our wedding 26 years ago. Great time and scrumptious ceviche with our pitcher of Cañonita Margarita’s- nothing better to celebrate New Years at Vegas. Thank you Cañonita
Great location by the canals and gondolas at The Venetian. Great for brunch.
The Churros was the best !
Great food! Great service! Ambiance was gorgeous. Dined right next to the canal and saw gandola rides
Service poor, food below average
Went here for my girlfriends birthday and it was delicious 10 out of 10, loved the churros
Tacos were excellent; salad was okay…
The food was amazing and top notch service. Highly recommend this restaurant
Food was delicious and waiter was great! Tacos are mouthwatering and great you can mix. Had pork carnitas and fish. Fantastic!
The food was extremely dry. The chicken was very hard. The beans and rice had no taste. My wife’s order was wrong twice. Both times our waitress forgot to fix it.
It reminded me of a sub-par Taco Bell with a more forgetful service staff and extremely inflated prices.
Great, always great service. Love the atmosphere. ,
Loved the food, loved the ambiance, loved Servers. Loved everything
Good food service was not great.
Worst food and front desk service………………………………………….
Everyone was great
Un mesero fue sumamente irrespetuoso, era moreno como de unos 40 años, peleonero, pésimo servicio
El mesero que me atendió estuvo muy bien, pero un fulano aparte del mismo restaurante estuvo pésimo de muy mal gusto
Can't beat the location, near the water with gondolas passing by. If possible request the tables next to the water.
My husband and I had a wonderful anniversary lunch. We had a table right by the water.
Chile relleno 5/5
Short rib special dish 4/5
Jalapeño Margarita? They should taste it before serving it to a customer! Way too hot! Almost undrinkable. 0/5
Cañonita margarita 4/5. Very good!! Ambience 5/5
Very nice place!
The food was fantastic. 👌 It hit the spot on all accounts. From taste to serving size to originality. Both my boyfriend and I decided the Mahi Mahi and we cleaned our plates. We also had the chips and salsa and added Guaq. Everything was on par including the service. Our server Rico, was polite, funny & knew the menu well. We will definitely be back. Oh, and we're vegas locals so you can trust our review. 😁👍
Very pleasant location along the canal allowing diners to view the gondolas and to hear the gondoliiers sing. The food is decent but overpriced. The service was good
I had reservations for 4:15. I made the reservations specifically to sit my the water for my birthday dinner. I was told no table was available for 4 people by the water.. I said I would wait for one to open. 45 min later, I told them we would split to 2 & 2 as those tables were open. Apparently the staff was not sufficient to accommodate that area....so we finally got seated at 5:30 and the food was mediocre at best. Disappointed & will not be returning nor recommending this restaurant.
As always, this restaurant offers great service and food in an excellent setting.
Every year upon arrival to Las Vegas to celebrate our anniversary we start breakfast here and everyone is welcoming and attend to our needs.
Highly recommend for great Mexican food.
Wife's tacos were cold to many onions and not enoughcilantro, other than that food was ok, ambience was fantastic with the venetian canal singers ... the margaritas were ok.
It was just OK. Small menu, fresh chips and salsa were good but overall if you know Mexican food, this didn’t do it.
