The ambience was great and a beautiful restaurant. It it conveniently located next to a parking structure and they validate parking. We celebrated and event and is nice that you can call in advance and they will arrange something special for you. In our case, they personalized the menu with the person’s name and reason for celebrating. Great experience overall.

About the restaurant
Michelin Guide rated neighborhood restaurant with creative and shareable cuisine and a year-round patio.

"With a clear vision, a striking aesthetic and distinctive, mouthwatering flavors, Canon restaurant in East Sacramento is a stellar and welcome addition to the city’s dining scene." - 4-Stars, Sacramento Bee

"Find the convivial Canon sequestered away from the downtown bustle. This cool space that contrasts deep tones against bright whites is enveloped by the aromatic smell of smoke, so it’s no surprise that the house is packed most nights. Chef Brad Cecchi is the culinary mastermind and his menu is pivoted around playful small plates." - Michelin Guide

Canon is committed to a healthy and productive workplace. A 4% service fee is added to dine-in bills to help cover the cost of employee health and wellness benefits and to provide a kitchen equity stipend to our back-of-house staff.

We had a wonderful time at Canon! I had reserved an outside table, but it was so hot, the management called me to move to the inside (such great customer service!) Everything we ordered, from the quick bite tots, to the small plates--chili chicken, to the platter (NY strip steak) were perfectly cooked and simply delicious. We also enjoyed the bright and fruity cocktails as well. My guests were so pleased with the dinner, we are planning to go back again very soon.

Love the tiki ambience, drinks and food are great. Service was quick, friendly, attentive and accommodating. We asked to turn down the music a little since our table was right under a speaker and it was a bit loud for conversation, and they were happy to oblige.
