Thanksgiving menu was wonderful. We sat right on the water so it was a bit loud, but that was expected. Loved it.
That 16$ ceviche was definitely not worth the money. Maybe 8$ .... maybe. Definitely drop the price on that.
Enjoyed the spicy margarita!
It was such a nice experience, Javier was great and attentive to us.
We had multiple options for dining. Canonita did not disappoint!
Food was great and we loved the Margaritas! went twice during our stay
Everything was amazing. The food was authentic and tasty. Armando was our server and he has excellent customer skills. I give this restaurant five stars.
Been coming here for the last few years. The enchiladas are absolutely delicious! Great margaritas and palomas! Service is always on point!
My boyfriend and I have never had such a authentic Mexico City dining experience like this in the US. It really made my boyfriend who is from CDMX feel so at home for his special birthday dinner. The food was so amazing, the drinks were delicious and the service was such a delight.
Celebrating early b-day
A must when we visit Las Vegas. We have been going for many years. The food is excellent and the raspberry mojitos a must. A flight is even better.
Javier took great care of us and did a special desert for our friends Birthday.
We will be back!!!
Excellent food and service!
Yummy food, great service and nice atmosphere. Would definitely visit again.
This place was amazing. Mushroom enchiladas are so good!
Took a while to be seated due to the Covid regulations but the drinks were good the queso was delicious and the guacamole was very good . Plus you get to see the gondolas pass by on the outside seating
We came here for my husband’s 40th birthday lunch, and everything was awesome. The server was very attentive and helpful. The ambiance was beautiful, with a direct view of the canal and gondolas. The food and drinks were delicious! We had chips, salsa, guacamole, and flautas. And then the server surprised my husband with complimentary birthday churros, which were so fresh and amazing! They put a candle on them too, which was perfect. We had such a wonderful experience!
Carlos aka “Carlitos” and Rafa were excellent in every way! Team work was definitely displayed. The canoes were so fun and interactive. The food and drinks were exceptional especially the mushroom tacos. Can’t wait to go again!
Pozole was very good.
Service was great never had an empty glass.
Overall a nice place to eat.
The staff were accommodating and our waitress was attentive and knowledgeable of the menu. We will visit again for sure as the food was delicious and the ambience alongside the gondola course was a nice touch.
The place is right by the venetian channel so makes it beautiful and breath taking.
Love it!! I will come again the food is delicious everyone that works their where very nice. I will visit again.
The chicken enchiladas were delicious. Everything went well. Have no complaints. The ambiance and location is great especially if you are staying in the Palazzo/ Venetian.
Excellent and quick service. Delicious food. Great location next to the gondola rides!
Loved all the food we had. Margaritas were the best ever!! Service was awesome!
We went to watch the Dodger game and eat some great Pozole and mushroom enchiladas! The service was phenomenal as were the food and drinks! The pozole was outstanding ! The watermelon cucumber / mint cocktail was so refreshing and delicious! Our server I believe attentive and provided excellent service. We would definitely go back!
The flautas were amazing!! I’ll be eating here again the next time we visit 😁
Wanted to try a Mexican Restaurant while in Vegas and choose Canonita. Food was good, portions were huge, drinks were very good. We have a great server, very attentive. Cool location.
The restaurant setting is beautiful, the staff is amazing, but unfortunately I didn’t like the food.
The food was great. I loved the Guacamole. I ordered Beef Enchiladas for brunch, and it was good. TheChurros for dessert was warm and crunchy.
Our server Carlos was knowledgeable and professional. We enjoyed our dinner.
Food and drinks were delicious. A little tucked away in vinitian casino so give yourself plenty of time to get there.
We were looking for a special place to enjoy our 40th anniversary and Canonita was perfect in every way!! Located in the Venetian overlooking the Gondola ride the atmosphere was very romantic. Add to that superb food and excellent service! Our server, Javier was excellent and offered great recommendations and also took our picture! We highly recommend it and ask for Javier!
Food was not tasty:( margaritas are delicious though.
Great experience, loved the food. And the location is perfect. Cam, our server, was amazing and very attentive. Would 100% recommend this place.
Armondo was the real MVP and was the best part of our trip there. He was an excellent server/ bartender while helping us pick out our best menu options. A great spot for brunch at the Venetian and a great bottomless mimosa bar !!!
Our waitress was so amazing she made our night.
I found a hair in my food otherwise it was nice portions kind of small
Awesome food on the canals of the venitian great atmosphere
Awesome food! Attentive service. Great atmosphere. Will be back!
Best place to eat in vegas! Great service and food!
