Excellent place in the Venetian - great food, wonderful staff, awesome location on the canal, and the prices are very reasonable when compared to other Venetian venues. It has become my 'go to' spot when I visit for b'fast/lunch meetings or just for downtime.

The above review tells you how I felt about most categories.

The prices were higher than I generally pay for this type of food, but that’s Las Vegas on The Strip!

We took our 12 year old and 9 year old to dinner here during a recent visit to Las Vegas. As with most restaurants on the strip the food was extremely overpriced. I ordered the fajitas and it was the smallest portion of fajitas that I have ever seen. I was fine with the smaller portion but it was very pricey. We ordered chips and guac and asked for some salsa as well - our waitress informed us it was $5 extra to bring the salsa. Wow! The ambiance is great as it is right on the canal in the Venetian. This was a fine place to eat for our family of 4 - just be prepared for the hefty price tag!

Canonita is located in the Venetian shops and has a neat ambiance. We wanted to get lunch and had a reservation at 11:15, but lunch did not start until 11:30 so the wait staff was friendly and let us be until it was closer to lunch. I loved the chips and salsa and my husband got the chicken quesadilla which were both great. My chicken salad; however, was not great and I also had ordered it with dressing on the side, but they mixed it in. I chose not to send it back as it was not that big of deal, but would have preferred it made to order. Overall it was a good choice with minor things noted that could have been improved.

Plan accordingly for conferences! Attending a large conference at the Sands we had made a reservation for noon a month in advance. We were seated 50 minutes later to then be told the food would take another 45 minutes. No doubt they had significant trouble handling capacity during conference lunch times.

The pork, beef, and chicken tacos were dry and low on flavor. No sauce in the tacos, had to ask for salsa, the rice was decent but was not Spanish rice. No refried beans, black beans only and to top it off the lunch was was $65 for both meals which consisted of 6 street tacos between the 2 meals, double rice on each plate because we didn't want black beans, queso fubdido as an appetizer, ice tea and a margarita.
The only upside was the ambiance and the margarita was good. I expected authentic Mexican food here and didn't get it!

The reservation and check-in staff were neither helpful nor competent. It was only after we engaged Manager Katherine Keuling that the evening was salvaged. Katherine met our every need and expectation and made our night a success. Prior to our contact with her, however, we were ready to walk out. Staff needs immediate customer service training.

The food was excellent and the location with a table against the canal was great. Waiter was very attentive. My only issue was the entree coming out before the appetizers had been completed and cleared, so we felt a little rushed.

One of the better restaurants on the Grand Canal at The Venetian and great price value considering location. The Palazzo/Venetian sit-down restaurants can get overpriced for what they offer.

We came for breakfast and were seated next to the Grand Canal which was lovely. We ordered the apple/guava empanadas for an appetizer, as well as our main breakfast entrees, thinking the empanadas would be served prior. Unfortunately, no. They brought the empanadas after our entrees, so it kind of defeated the purpose of enjoying a pastry first. My husbands coffee was just yuck...he tried to drink it, but just couldn't get it down. He's not a coffee snob by any means, but said their coffee was just plain awful. My chorizo/egg tacos were just ok, but a little odd, and the waitress seemed puzzled when I asked her for some salsa for them. My husbands huevos rancheros were good and he enjoyed them. We were disappointed, as having lived in Mexico for 6 years we were looking forward to some authentic Mexican recipes, as claimed in the restaurant description. Definitely not similar to anything we have ever had in Mexico. Would not go back unfortunately, nor would we recommend others to try it. Our server was nice, as were the other staff we encountered.

We go out for special occasions often. We made reservations to eat here before we went to go see the band Chicago. Our server Brian was excellent. The prices and the amount of food you get is ridiculous. You get charged $5 dollars for chips and salsa $9 dollars for chips and guacamole. All the appetizers were expensive . We didn’t end up ordering an entrée due to the fact that we were really not that hungry. We did order the guacamole and an appetizer of a seafood toastada which was very smal, 1 bite-size chip for $15 , And 2 Tito martinis . So two appetizers and two martinis came to $55 we left $65 and didn’t really eat anything. So I would not recommend this to a friend there’s plenty of Mexican restaurants that have outstanding service, food for a reasonable price. We are not cheap by any means but we do like quantity.

Celebrated my husbands birthday with a nice brunch glad we came here the scenery was beautiful you had the shops near you and the cute romantic boats passing frequently. Of course since it was indoors there was a little echo so it can get pretty loud with all the ppl walking and shopping but overall great the food really tasted like authentic Mexican food and the service was great!

Came here for breakfast. The garden egg white omelette was delicious and went well with a spicy Bloody Mary. All was tasty and presented well. My daughter had eggs and bacon from the children’s menu. The scrambled eggs melted in her mouth. Both of our breakfast potatoes were not hot, but luckily we are not big fans of home fries. Churros were supper yummy, too!
