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.

    Everything was great.... I think bc it was a Michelin star, I expected the food to be mind blowing and although it was excellent, it wasn't mind blowing. Staff was great, ambience looked amazing, chairs were a bit uncomfortable but still fine.

    We enjoyed our visit very much. Service was excellent and friendly which added a star. Cocktail was pretty good. Food was good too. The real standout was a halibut and crab cake special. Would recommend for an upscale dinner. Didn't sit out side but the outdoor dining space looks wonderful and chic.

    Canon has become my favorite restaurant for many reasons. The seasonal, farm to fork menu with delicious options including delicious Branzino and adventurous small plates like the tomato heirloom dish are unparalleled. Anything with their mushrooms, like the new summer squash dish, are a must! The crafted cocktails, service and dessert selections are superb. July is my birthday month and I will have visited 3 times (maybe more;-) Canon is a gift I throughly enjoy savoring with others.

    Delicious and inventive food. We enjoyed everything we tried (tots with mole, ashy carrots, corn tamale, pea salad, and steak). The cocktails were also excellent. Service was helpful and attentive but they stayed out of our way. Their patio is super cute and nice to hang out in.

    Good food, artfully presented. We ate on the covered patio, which was delightful, despite being at a very small table for 2. Still preferable to the interiors, which seemed to lack adequate ventilation for the open kitchen - walking through the dining room to get to the bathroom, the smell throughout made me question our decision to dine here. Had reservations but the welcome at the door leaves a lot to be desired, hostess should be reassigned. Shout out to Lauren, who was a knowledgable, professional and friendly server. Be sure to try the craft vodka (we did it neat), the natural wine (superb!), and the blistered cherries for desert. Just don't order the tres leche cake if you've every had it anywhere else before, it should be renamed to better reflect whatever it is. Spent 2 hours and $300, and have no regrets.

    Canon is THE BEST restaurant because they excel on all fronts! Most importantly the food is incredible every time. It’s always changing based on seasonality, so you get to go on a new culinary adventure with every visit. The wine list is fantastic too. But something also very noteworthy is their staff - so friendly, so professional. Everything at this restaurant is thoughtful and so well executed. The ambience is very cool and sophisticated. For my husband and I this is always our first pick when we get a night out!

    Very tasty small plates. Ambience was nice and service was good, once it got going. The idea is unique, getting all kinds of things to share. A little disappointed in the large plate. We got the steak and it was tough and really nothing spectacular. Definitely the weakest point of the meal. The desert made up for it though, very tasty.

    The presentation of all the dishes was simply amazing. 5 stars. Our server, Justin; was attentive and caring. 5 stars. Ambiance was great. I love the herb and vegetable garden out front. 5 stars (and I’m jealous. It’s beautiful.) The pea salad was wonderful. 5 stars (except for the raw egg yolk on top-ew.) Neither of us were impressed with our entrees. Fried Whole Branzino and Lamb Pave’. I wish they had a plain old lamb chop vs the overcooked lamb that was like shredded pulled pork. But given that the menu is seasonal, I’m sure we will be back to try other mains. The only other drawback is the price. But hello, COVID, hello great resignation and supply chain woes. Welcome to the new era where EVERY restaurant that survives has to increase prices by 30-50% just to make ends meet. I don’t begrudge them the right to a profit and to pay a fair wage. And again; all the food presentation was amazing. Visually spectacular.

    The food was delicious. The plates are shared, but they way they are plated makes it hard to share. For example, we had the pea shoot salad and the egg was nested in pea puree, the lettuce was arranged in a circle and tangled together which made it difficult to serve. Other than that, food was delicious and service was on point.

    Canon has such an interesting and creative menu. We had a perfectly cooked fried whole branzino with wonderfully subtle Asian flavors. The tamale with huitlacoche was also delightful. The wine list sources bottles from all over the world, and we had an interesting Hungarian furmint that went nicely with the fish. All in all, a very good experience.

    We went to Canon to celebrate a special birthday. A separate dining area was set aside for our party (I hadn’t asked for that, the restaurant just did it). The table was beautiful, the service impeccable and the food was mind blowinging! I cannot say enough good things about Canon, and shout out to Andrew who was absolutely lovely as our waiter! We can’t wait to go back! 💙
