We've been to this restaurant several times over years, and always found it better than good - and of course food in Las Vegas is always a crap shoot (pun intended). With a table right overlooking the canal you get to see and hear the gondoliers navigating their boats below you. Mexican dishes also better than most, and more inventive.... More

Considering the type of food which is served, this is extremely overpriced. $20+ for quesidillas or enchiladas, which are just OK, is extortionate. Portions are small, drinks servings are small. For what you get it's too expensive to be enjoyable.

I had seen this place on our last trip while shopping in the Grand Canal Shoppes and decided to make it our stop for dinner after the Elton John concert. I love that it's located next to the canal so you can watch the gondolas float by. Our reservations were for 10:15 PM but it was nice that they were... More

we had lunch here Saturday the food was ok. We got mixed drinks a margarita and a pina colada that did not taste like anything.... the waitress was nice enough to take them back and have bar tender fix them.. My friend had the taquitos and they were great, I liked my chicken salad and it was also ok.

Staying at the Venetian we wanted a restaurant that we could walk to. This restaurant is located on "the canal" so you can enjoy the view and the singing of the gondoliers. The menu said "Mexico City" cooking and the dishes were prepared a little different that what we are use to but that was OK. Chile rellanos encrusted in... More

On the advice of a friend, I went here for lunch while in Vegas on business. This was absolutely the best possible choice. Started with chips/salsa/guacamole (no free chips/salsa here; you pay for them) and this was delicious. Fresh chips, good homemade salsa with a bit of heat to it, and clearly homemade fresh guac. I got the beef enchiladas... More

Bread to be ordered separately and takes ages to arrive! Espresso is nothing else as regular Coffee served in a espresso mug - still laughing about this joke! service does not make... More

when you eat at one of the mid-priced restaurants in the Venetian, it's usually middle of the road. I had a wonderful meal, sitting on the canal, at Canonita. Highly recommend the salmon and plaintains. Also the jalapeno margarita was YUM-city.

Bringing to mind the authentic taquerias of the legendary marketplaces of Mexico, Chef Donna Willey brings you Canonita. This casual and exciting Mexican dining experience features an authentic, rustic menu of "Mexico-City Soul Food" with delectable tacos, ceviches and mouth watering barbacoa made with savory fire-roasted meats, grilled vegetables and the freshest seafood. Hand-made tortillas, refreshing salsas and fresh-juice Star Margaritas provide guests with an unforgettable "true taste of Mexico." The bustling open-air kitchen adds to the home-style warmth and energy of Canonita as do the patio festoon lighting and umbrellas with lively Salsa and Tejano music. Behind the bar many imported cervezas are featured alongside old-world Sangria and many premium Mexican tequilas, perfect for relaxed sipping.
