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.

    Very nice environment and patio. Really loved some of the food (heirloom tomatoes, miso pudding dessert) but was kind of disappointed in others especially considering price (ny strip). Service was also slow at times but I don't mind that too much bc I think servers are generally overstretched these days. Not sure I'd go again. There are other places I prefer in the area for fine dining at similar or even lower price points.

    A very creative menu, with all items recommended for sharing, but small plates are quite small. One or two bites each for a table of four. The fish entree wasteland, and the NY steak was over-cooked and rather tasteless. This was my fourth time here and no meal has been a "wow".

    The small plates menu had a wonderful selection, the cocktails were perfect, and the off-menu dessert items were memorable. It was busy and loud inside, but the patio was quieter. Just remember to bring a sweater!

    The food here is unmatched. Seasonal ingredients shine in unexpected ways. Speciality cocktails are simply a delight. This is the type of place you can (and should) put full trust in your server for pairings and preferences. Perfect for a slow meal OR simply a small bite and cocktail.

    This was our first time at Canon and we were not disappointed. The wait staff was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and approachable. The food was wonderful. Dishes were complex with different flavors that melded perfectly. My cocktail was absolutely perfect and refreshing for a super hot evening in Sacramento. We will definitely be back for our next special dinner.

    The fascinating flavors are worth your time and money! Our server was patient with our questions about the menu and knowledgeable about the nuances of the different menu choices. The only drawback— and it’s somewy minor — was that the chairs on the patio were relatively uncomfortable.

    This is our 2nd visit. We were so impressed the first time, we had to come back. Server was attentive & helpful. We were there on a Sunday & he explained what items were only served on Sundays. Food is superb! Everything prepared to perfection. Heirloom tomatoes were the bomb. Drinks were yummy. Had the salmon which was so exquisitely seasoned. This is our new favorite restaurant.

    Server didn’t recognize the special occasion until check came, a pair of old ladies that bathed in perfume were seated right next to us, no mocktails, light reflected from the front door beamed into our eyes every time the door opened (get some light diffusing plastic). It was okay overall.

    The food was fantastic. The chicken was out of this world. Fish could’ve used a touch more seasoning. The butter with the chicken skin for the cornbread is ingenious. The chocolate almond cake is a revelation. Peach salad was perfect for the weather and the pole beans is the hidden mvp of the menu. Service was attentive and courteous, just a touch slow.

    I always recommend Canon in East Sacramento for food, drinks, or atmosphere. I love the seasonality of their menus and while their food offerings are fabulous, their craft cocktails are phenomenal, super complex and layered - it's worth a visit just for drinks. Every time I've been to Canon, the staff was super friendly and great to talk to. I also appreciate the fact that they charge patrons a nominal service charge to cover employee health and wellness benefits and an equity stipend to kitchen staff. Frequenting places with that level of transparency is preferred.
