About Cañonita

I love the Canonita! For years, I've eaten there every time I'm in Vegas! It's a perfect location on the canal. The food is creative and delicious. This time we had the braised beef tacos, the mole chicken, and the Cazuela De Mariscos (like a bouillabaisse). My husband was ecstatic about the bouillabaisse! Portions are moderate size, but are so tasty they are a good value for the price. And the guacamole was just spicy enough with warm and salty chips. Our waiter promptly took our order, made recommendations, and refilled drinks before we asked. He put our order through right away since we told him we had gondola ride tickets in 60 minutes. We had a fantastic meal. We wish we had the time to linger. If in Vegas go get your Mexican food fix at the Canonita!

Cenamos la Noche de New years eve. Nos parecio un lugar muy agradable y romantico para estar. La comida estuvo de 10, todo exquisito y muy bien sugerido por nuestro camarero. Creo recordar que se llamaba Marcus. Nos recomendo muy buenos platos y terminamos felices. Muchas gracias.

Small portion of food really overpriced. Margaritas were good but when we ordered them it was at the same moment the waiter gave us the menus, therefore we couldn't possibly know there were sooo many options. However, the waiter never asked us for clarification or specified "which one". At the end of the meal, we have drunk our traditional margaritas (of course!) and we were charged the most expensive ones... When we complained, the waiter said as we didn't specify, he brought us those ones... Wtf?! In addition, when we ordered our food, we asked for the "chips and guacamole", and he brought us an additional sauce that he later also charged us for. Terrible service.

This was our first night at the Venetian and our first reservation for dinner. We were really looking forward to the experience as we both love Mexican food. We came a little early but were seated quickly. We were happy and excited and looked forward to a wonderful evening. We each wanted a margarita and were pleased that they had so many to choose from. We both ordered a different one and they were really quite good...my date even had two and she loved them... as I did. To start, our waiter was great and very informative so we felt right at home. Then, for what ever reason (I do not recall anything out of the ordinary) somehow our waiter did not return to take our order and we also had to wait to get some ice water which we requested. I would not make an issue of this normally however we felt forgotten. I finally got his attention and he was quick to take out order. Maybe he was giving us some time. We received our food and were very happy that it was so tasty and exactly what we wanted! My friend ordered another margarita like her first one and I selected a desert which our waiter allowed to to share. We made small talk with the waiter and he told us we should come in and enjoy their breakfast, too!
All in all, it was a very good experience and the food and drink were both excellent! We will definitely go back.

We eat here every time we come to Vegas. Food is always excellent. This time we met some local friends here who had never dined here before. They loved it. When our food arrived, they had a different style of rice than I had eaten before. I asked the waiter what happened to the cilantro rice ( which is one of the reasons I come here)? He said the batch they had made had gotten hard and they would not serve that to their customers. Now this is not a bad thing. This is a testament to thier food quality. Towards the end of our meal, a new batch was ready and they brought some to our table for us to enjoy. Excellent food, staff and ambiance. I recommend this restraunt to anyone coming to Las Vegas. Keep up the great work Canonita!!!

We visited several years ago and it was so good. Not anymore. The pineapple infused margaritas were tart not sweet. My husband had to send his Chili Relleno dinner back and he didn't want a replacement. I only ate half of my Burrito. The spices overpowered the food. We will not go back. Our waiter was overwhelmed. Although we had a 5:00 pm reservation, they were not ready for us, and we were seated at 5:20.

Food is really outstanding. I don’t expect much on the strip in Vegas, both in food quality and service, but was very impressed with both.

I had Salmon which was exceptional. Other 3 with me all had Carne Asada, which all 3 said was also very good. Chips were outstanding as well!

Looking forward to going back
