Traditional Mexican
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.

We ordered our appetizers and drinks first. The appetizer was brought out at the same time as our main course without our drinks. Drinks were finally brought out 10 mins later after we asked for them. The manager did adjust our bill at the end to compensate for the confusion.

Took 15mins just to order drink, then another 20mins to get food..They only had 2 servers for the whole place, I think that was the cause of it all, but the food was great it was just the slow service that ruined the whole thing 😒..

It took a long time to get seated even though we made a reservation. The margaritas were very good. Our server Carlos was very good but very busy with many tables. The chips and salsa and guac were tasty. The tuna appetizer was excellent.

Love the setting on the canal! Very good food, service and value. Fun to try different margaritas with the 3 flight tasting. Generous portions- I’ve been here about 15 times and everything I’ve had is very good!

Had reservations sat right away…. Then we waited and waited. I had to grab a busser to get some water. He was helpful, said our server would be to our table shortly because he had a large party. There weren’t many people in the restaurant. Mind you we got there at 9:30pm. So after we continued to sit and wait we ordered food to go. It was ok and not worth the wait. We understand that servers & staffing is limited, but this was a whole other level of waiting.

We have been coming to Canonita for over 10 years and always have a great experience. We’re seated quickly and our drink order taken. The menu has several items you don’t find on any typical Mexican restaurant and they’re prepared exactly as it’s described. The only letdown I have is that they are now charging for chips and salsa. I wished the manager would reconsider providing them gratis.

Food was very good, it was the service that was poor. We got lost in the shuffle we had a sister take our order and then we never saw him again. No one checked on us for 30 min after we got our food. Then final we got our check and it took another 30 min to have her come take the check to pay. Unfortunately we were shocked we never had a bad experience in the Venetian , but I will blame covid on the lack of staff kn this busy night! If we had a waiter the place would of got at least 4.5 stars.

Canonita was fabulous! We were looking for highly rated brunches in Las Vegas and Canonita did not disappoint. We will return during our next trip to Vegas! The ambience was wonderful. Our server, Roberto, was hospitable and anticipated our every need. The drinks & food were fantastic and priced very reasonably, especially for the portion size. We would highly recommend!

A good value for Las Vegas....this Mexico City style Mexican food met the approval of this Texas family. The barbacoa was tender and amazing and the seared salmon was some of the best we've had anywhere! Chips salsa and guacamole didn't disappoint! Service was pretty good but good have been more attentive. Location overlooking the gondola at the Venetian was pleasant and quieter than many restaurants in LV. We would go back!

Reservations mean nothing at this place. Checked in 30 mins early and was told to come back. Checked in 10 mins before and was told the table was being disinfected. I let the hostess know we would be standing a few feet away, waiting. 25 mins later our table was still not ready. The hostess let about 7 families (some without reservations) ahead of us. I asked the hostess (same one throughout) what the delay was and she asked if we "had been helped yet?" WTF right? I told her I checked in with her multiple times...She apologized but we waited an additonal 15 mins to sit down. Food was okay, drinks were okay. Overall experience was ruined by simple incompetence. Will not be returning in the future.
