The food is good here. It is not a full Mexican restaurant like it used to be. They have as many fish items as they have Mexican food items on the menu. The menu used to be much better.
Food was good but as with most things in Vegas was way overpriced.
Despite our reservation, we waited 15 minutes to be sat, and another 15 after that to have our drinks order taken. The restaurant was busy, but they know when conventions are in the hotel and should staff appropriately.
Outstanding! The food was absolutely fabulous. Every single person in our 11 person party commented on how delicious the food was. The pricing was very reasonable and our waiter, whose name I wish I could remember, was attentive and always available to help. The only thing slightly negative I have to say is the noise level is higher than I would have preferred. Other than that I can’t say enough good things about this restaurant!
Always good. We sat and had drinks and appetizers . Great place
Came to Canonita for a quick lunch/dinner. Filet mignon was very tender, although the sauce they put over top was a little too salty for me. If I order again I will order with the sauce on the side as it was very much like an A-1 type. The seasoned vegetables were very good, cooked well. Also came with a type of corn bread which was not your traditional cornbread but it was warm, soft and sweet. My waiter was very conscientious and came to my table at just the right times. I enjoyed listening to the gondoliers sing as they floated along the canal next to my table. Atmosphere almost made me feel as if I wasn't in Las Vegas anymore. Definitely recommend and will dine again!
Service was fabulous. My wife’s short rib was outstanding. My Caesar salad should be removed from the menu. It was NOT very good.
Bar tender was very nice. Treated us to a special drink for our birthday. Service was great!
This place serves great Mexican food in great ambiance.
Very good Mexican food. The menu is very eclectic, but the food is awesome. I had the salmon, and it was incredible. Our waiter was very attentive and kind. Sitting along the canal provides a very unique experience. Would definitely recommend.
took a while to get seated due to our party's size and CES, despite having a reservation.
The food was so unique and very good!
Canonita was by far the best Mexican food we’ve had in years! It’s very unique flavors were exactly what we were looking for and we were not disappointed. Our server was extremely efficient and attentive without overdoing it. He was well versed in the menu and without being asked double checked all recipes with the chef because he knew we had an allergy at the table. The cocktails were spot on. The Mojitos were excellent! We highly recommend this spot and will definitely be returning next time we are in Vegas.
Thanks for the wonderful experience!
Delicious food and the service was excellent.
Good food. Great margaritas and chips and salsa. What sh they had reg cheese dip.
It was great experience in eating there on New Year's Eve 2019. Nice atmosphere very next to Gondola rides at Venetian Hotel and excellent services there.
Great variety of appetizers and entrees. Food was excellent. Also nice selection of drinks.
Good food and nice atmosphere located next to the canal. For Las Vegas the prices are reasonable and the food was good. Not easy to locate...in the back of the Venetian hotel. Service was average but pleasant.
We ate at Canonita two times in one day...that's how great it is! The only restaurant we saw right on the Grand Canal at the Venetian. Food, service, ambience...all 12/10...highly recommend! We ate the Mexico City Enchiladas (roasted chicken) and the Mexico City Burrito (carne asada) + took tres leches cake to go...YUM-O 👍🤩
Tacos, enchiladas, and carnitas were all very good.
We had a wonderful time. We had a table overlooking the canal. The service was excellent. Will definitely return!!
Always the best service and food as delicious and close to real Mexican as can be.
Amazing food and value for money definitely:)
Thank you for a great service. You always spoil us and your staff rocks.
If you’re Used to Californian Mexican food this is not the place for you.
Amazing ambience food and margaritas
A good place to bring your date to, if you get the table next to gondola, you will just love everything about the ambience
They had excellent holiday drinks offered during Happy Hour!
Great place food is excellent
Very cool menu with some fun ingredients and seafood options. The Tacos are so yummy. Also the seared Ahi was amazing. My favorite was the Enchiladas with braised beef and the red sauce. Highly recommend
Great food and service. Ismail our waiter was great.
Vegetarian food option were very good. Server was amazing and took care of all our dietary needs. Ambiance was very lovely. Can’t think of anything better. Thank you restaurant and special thanks to my server.
We ordered veggie quesadilla, but the order came with beef. Appreciate if the orders are noted down correctly and be served right the first time!
Food was very average and disappointing. Will not return.
Exceptional food, great service. Loved the atmosphere and felt instantly welcomed! Definitely will go back when back in Vegas!
Great hostesses! Very accommodating
Good food, service and value in the Venetian.
Get a table along the canal to listen to the gondola paddlers sing.
Average attempt at ‘Mexican’ food. Not worth the stop.
Food was delicious and it was right by beautiful scenery!
We had a table on the canal and enjoyed the outstanding food, great service from Ismael, and the singing of the gondoliers!!
