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 have eaten previously at Canon and enjoyed the food and the experience. However, this visit was not as good. It started with where they sat us when we arrived. There were multiple open tables and they sat us at a very uncomfortable two person table. We watched other parties of two come after us and get seated in much more comfortable tables. That was disappointing. The food was OK this time. The potatoes and vegetables were really good. The Seabass was dry and did not have enough sauce given how dry the fish was. The server was OK but she was a little vacant at the end of the meal.

    Food was fresh and very tasty, presentation was not overwhelming, food was speaking by itself. Grilled baby octopus was excellent, oysters were fresh but a little on small size, grilled potatoes was tasty, grouper plater was fresh and tender. Pudding and chocolate red chili gelato each were so creamy and yummy, best we ever tried. We will definitely go back.

    My wife and I opted for a selection of 5 different small plate options, paired at the server's recommendation. All were beautifully plated and delicious. Finished with a shared dessert and after dinner cocktail. Want to come back sooner than later to try more.

    First time at Canon. First Hour was great, really enjoyed the small plates including the baby octopus, biscuits and the drumsticks. However the main course was very disappointing. The chef was doing a short rib platter and cooking to order. I am more used to short rib being braised to break down the muscle and tenderize the meat. Unfortunately this dish was a complete miss. It was chewy and hard to eat. My mother complained that she almost choked on it. More troubling was our server who had been very attentive for the first hour basically disappeared for the last thirty minutes and never inquired about how the platters were. We didn’t bother with dessert, just got our check and left. I would not recommend this restaurant and would instead point someone to Waterboy, Allora, and Ella as better establishments with stronger service.

    Food was a bit salty, except the wagyu which was under seasoned. The puffed tendon was hard. Drinks were not balanced. Service was the best part!

    Everything was good as always, only gripe was the buttermilk biscuits, tasted like they'd been in a hot hold for a little too long as the outside was a bit hard and dry. Highlight was the charred beets!

    Overall a very good experience, we liked the food and service, would go back, and have already recommended it to friends. There were two things I found strange, however. It was a birthday dinner, it was legit, we let them know in the reservation and they said Happy Birthday several times, but there was no acknowledgement of it at the end of the dinner. No, we didn't order dessert, but a simple scoop of ice cream with a little candle or something would have been nice. For the price of the dinner, I expected something, and I was disappointed my partner didn't get that acknowledgement. And although this is not a "fancy" restaurant, for the prices and the atmosphere they are creating I expected more than two boxes dumped on our table for leftovers -- the server couldn't box them? Not reasons to not go, but a weird and disappointing end to an otherwise nice experience.

    The dishes at Canon are always a unique blend of ingredients. With so many odd combinations it can be hit or miss. Often it is too spicy for our OG taste buds and stomach This time everything we ordered was a hit. The hamachi crudités was a delicious mix of fish , seaweed and yummy satsumas. The seared ahi was done perfectly. We had the arugula salad and scooped up every last pomegranate seed. It was nice and warm and cozy on the outside space and we felt a little safer from COVID than inside. The service was also very good. The wine by the glass list is limited but the craft cocktails are excellent.

    Had an amazing family meal here on 12/23. We were a large group so had the prix fixe menu family style and it was delicious. The shared plates made it a wonderful experience. From the drinks, to dessert and everything in between, it seemed like every dish they brought out was better than the last. And that this was a gluten free meal, wow. A few of our favorite dishes were the roasted chicken, pork belly pancakes, braised cabbage and mushroom miso salad, and sweet potato cinnamon roll. Such fabulous flavors! Very impressed by these chefs, will def be back.

    The food was exceptional but we hadn't been there since prior to the pandemic and many menu items were very familiar from that time period. That level of consistency makes me hesitant to eat there again anytime soon. The service was good but could have been friendlier. 230$ for 3 adults and one young child made for a pricey dinner.

    Sitting in the heated patio we were super cozy as we rolled through hamachi crudo, and tots, into our our whole grilled chicken with Brussels sprouts. Every plate progressed seamlessly into the next with our final course of butterscotch miso pudding and chocolate chili gelato. All the tiny details of each plate elevated the experience…. From the cranberry ponzu & mandarins with the hamachi , the rich smokey mole and cilantro micro greens with the tots, the orange brittle with the brussel sprouts, the charred orange halves with ultra moist and tender chicken, to the candied sunchoke with charred pineapple For the butterscotch miso pudding. Every plate and cocktail / glass of wine was on point. Such tremendous value for the food and service we received. We walked away feeling like we robbed the place.

    Inspired menu. Entree dishes were exceptional: chicken was remarkably flavourful and tender; tikka masala sweet potatoes with fresh herbs was the hit (savoury, sweet, spicy). The biscuits we ordered as appetizers were just okay but the other appetizer dish (assortment of pickles including cucumber, apple(!) and beets) made up for what was lacking with the biscuits. I will definitely make a point to re-visit!

    Canon is always a crowd favorite. Get twice as many orders of the tots as you think you need and you won’t regret it.
