    For many years Venetian has been our annual Las Vegas Hotel. We’ve dined at most of the restaurants on the property but this was our first time at Canonita! Wow, so delicious and great service! We’re very much Mexican Food snobs so trust me when I say this is a DON’T MISS! I had the Chicken Enchiladas and my husband the Shrimp Burrito. Order the guacamole you won’t be disappointed!

    I met my husband there for lunch and had a great tortilla salad with chicken. The sauce was light, which I liked. My husband had the chicken fajitas. He was less impressed. It came with several very small tortillas and was essentially just seasoned fried onions and peppers with sliced chicken breast on top and a side of sour cream and pick de gallo. I’d go back for the salad, but my husband would not. The atmosphere was lovely… inside the Venetian on the canal. The service was good.

    We went for Breakfast on Sunday early in the morning, place was very quietly and the view is amazing, highly recommend the Chilaquiles with beef was Amazing specially for hangover 👌 Fuimos a Desayunar un Domingo por la mañana les recomiendo ir temprano si quieren evitar que no haya mucha gente, el lugar es bellisimo y el sentarte a un lado del canal es un plus, les recomiendo altamente que prueben los chilaquiles con carne, como buen Mexicano les puedo decir que son unos de los mejores chilaquiles que he probado, y la carne deliciosa es tipo birria, riquisima 👌 especialmente si quieres despertar despues de una buena desvelada.

    Have been in las vegas from 10/22 to 10/29 the worst service ever. We waited over 30 minutes to get our drinks never received the queso we ordered. Brought out our bill then forgot to add 2nd drinks waited for new bill. Definitely not worth a repeat trip.

    We are locals and always strive to find new restaurants in the valley. We absolutely loved Canonita! Everything from the drinks to dessert was top notch. Menu is high end Mexican with tons of flavor. The mushroom enchiladas and shrimp and mussel's appetizer were delicious! Churros and brownie for dessert topped off a wonderful dinner next to the canals in the Venetian. Waitstaff and server were total pros. Looking forward to returning! Will be on the rotation of local restaurants for sure.

    Attention, les chips et la salsa qu’on vous apporte avant le repas vous seront facturés 15$! Cela nous a semblé malhonnête, car nous n’en avons pas été informés et ce type de façon de faire est habituellement moins courant aux États-Unis. J’avais mentionné l’anniversaire de mon conjoint et il a eu droit à un dessert gratuit, ce qui a toutefois été apprécié. Très bon service dans un cadre qui sort de l’ordinaire.
