Carefully crafted from authentic recipes, every meal at Cañonita is a feast for the eyes and adventure for the taste buds.

Heritage and innovation merge with menu selections such as Santa Rosa Barbacoa and Mexico City Enchiladas for lunch, and Carne Asada and Pollo Mole Poblano for dinner. Our bar features a wide variety of beers, wines, cocktails, and fresh margaritas and guests can sample one of more than 50 fine-aged, authentic tequilas.

As the only restaurant located along the canal-front in The Venetian and The Palazzo, Cañonita offers guests a unique opportunity to experience the sights and sounds of the Grand Canal, with waterfront views of the resort's famous singing gondoliers. Outside, our Street Taqueria food truck recreates an essential element of Mexico City's culinary and cultural landscape, featuring a variety of street foods and house-infused margaritas.

Expected something different when ordering New York asada. Salsa was good. Guc was not very good. Guc is expensive.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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. 😁👍

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.

It was just OK. Small menu, fresh chips and salsa were good but overall if you know Mexican food, this didn’t do it.
