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.

    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.

    Canon has been a favorite of ours since they opened. Though the number of options can sometimes appear limited, the range of flavors is outstanding. Service can be a little slow when they are buy but it is worth spending your patience. House cocktails are always interesting and tasty. The ambience is nice but can be noisy at times. Overall, one of our favorite places in Sacramento.

    Beautiful interior and overall ambiance/vibe. Balances fine dining with a casual, welcoming feeling. Every single dish we ordered hit on every facet. Flavors were incredibly complex but balanced. Lots of amazing vegetable options on small plates, many of which outshined the meat dish we ordered. Service was on point. Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful in walking us through the menu. Timing was impeccable and cocktails were absolutely fantastic. First time here and definitely won’t be the last. Easily one of the top offerings in all of Sacramento

    Was really looking forward to some great food, must have been an off night. The small plates were disappointing especially the potatoes and roast beets, and the roast chicken was very salty.

    Always an exciting restaurant to take people to. Great selection of food and ❤️ the adventure with spices. Those pumpkin puffs last night were amazing( would ❤️ recipe) and the tater tots with mole, so yum! Of course the chicken drumsticks were just as fabulous as I remembered.

    Inventive small plates menu and lovely large outdoor patio that was very comfortable. Beautifully arranged plates. As it happens, our meal included at least four items with the seemingly same mole type of sauce. Some variety would have been appreciated. The seared tuna with chimichurri was the favorite of the evening. And, do order the cornbread with chicken skin butter. The crunch and unique flavor was excellent. Absolutely wonderful server. Highly professional and she paired the plates in a coordinated fashion. Luckily we knew about the availability of one bottle of wine per night at 1/2 price and it was a delicious Spanish Albarino.

    Food was good, but not awesome I expected. Our shared PBJ based dessert was bad. And we had to wait about 20-30 minutes to order dessert after main meal was complete. Ugh. All hardly worth the $90 per person we spent. Not recommenec.

    The food & service is exquisite! Each dish is thoughtfully prepared & tastes magnifico! so fresh. The spices meld together to produce an unbelievable experience in your mouth. Eat slowly & savour the explosion of taste. Been there 3xs in 2 months cuz it's such a wonderful experience & flavor blast. Order anything; its all good. Dishes are unique. Cocktails were excellently prepared also. Wine list is phenomenal!

    Cocktails were fantastic, expertly mixed and balanced. The cornbread was moist and flavorful, chicken drumsticks were succulent & spicy. My favorite dish was the heirloom tomato salad with puffed wild rice & green goddess dressing, never have I ever had fresh tomatoes taste so jammy and unctuous.

    Canon is our favorite restaurant in Sacramento. We have not been disappointed yet. The heirloom tomato salad, the tots and the whole prepared fish was perfection…accompanied by a bottle of French Rose Champagne to celebrate the end of another busy work period for my husband.

    Brought friends from SF. It was our second time. Great - helpful and attentive - wait staff. Food, like last time, was terrific. We had all small plates this time (heavy of the drumsticks! ;-) Only the almond cake was sort of a disappointment. (But the caramels we’re exceptional!) Really yummy cocktail (adventures in aperol). Will come again for sure.

    Canon always has great vegan options, and the current menu did not disappoint. My wife and I shared the heirloom tomatoes, blistered beans, and kimchi home fries dishes and finished the meal with the PB&J dessert. It was clear the chef paid close attention to constructing each element of these dishes and they were delivered to our table in the perfect succession to amplify our experience. We did not try any of the cocktails, but that was only because we brought a bottle of wine (and they have an extremely reasonable $20 corkage fee). I'm already looking forward to going back...and I could eat the kimchi potato dish every day until then.
