Warm, lovely staff, and hands-down the best Peruvian food I've had outside of Peru. The ceviche sampler, trout and salmon were big hits, as were the papa a la huancaina and lomo saltado. If nothing else, come for the truly excellent pisco sour.

I have heard of this restaurant for quite a while now. We just went there with a friend for lunch. Ample packing in the back, good seating area and flavorful food. I got the pan fried tilapia with rice. I was afraid it might be dry but to my surprise, it was really moist and flavorful. Loved it!

All the menu items are interesting and delicious. Ceviche Mango, Empanadas Peruanas, Camote Frito, Adobo de Chancho are my favorites. All food presentations are great, as is the service. (Good even for a business lunch.) The decor is not "foo foo" - an issue I really don't care about, I'm into the food. Sazon rivals Piqueo's in Bernal Heights and... More

Having recently returned from a trip to Peru, we were anxious to visit this local restaurant. I would definitely recommend a reservation, since the place was packed. After a brief wait outside (in fine weather) during which time we drank some pisco sours, we were shown to our table. We were four people and sampled two ceviche samplers (a choice... More

Sazon was reommended to me by a friend. I have to say this is one of the best restaurants I've been to since moving to Santa Rosa. Food is excellent.

Really, I was just looking for some place new to take my wife. We'd never tried Peruvian, so I figured it was worth a try. It's a thing we do. But I wasn't expecting much. I didn't know anything about the place other than that it had a good rating, which might get me in the door, but it doesn't... More

food was absolutely excellent. One of the people in my party is a food "addict" and felt that his dish of paella was the best dinner he ever had. I had the Costa Rican tillapia, another person had the shrimp salad and plantans and another one had the dish with beef strips, onions and fries (lomo saltado). We all felt... More

Description
Sazon is Spanish for "seasoning" and synonymous with incredible Peruvian cuisine! We combine family recipes with great service for amazing dining. Peruvian cuisine is a reflection of Peru's diverse geography, immigrant cultures, and even pre-Inca recipes! With a truly unique fusion of cultures, you'll taste dishes with hints of Spanish, African, Italian, and even Asian cuisines. At Sazon, our family serves authentic Peruvian recipes passed down by our great-grandmother, Maria Olinda, who herself boasted Peruvian, African, Spanish, and Italian ancestry! We invite you to share one of our unforgettable Ceviches with a co-worker at lunch; with 7 to choose from including a classic Ceviche Mango or the Ahi Ceviche Nikei with ahi tuna, you're sure to escape your workday stresses. Or bring loved ones for dinner to indulge in the amazing Pollo a la Brasa, free-range chicken marinated with a house blend of traditional Peruvian spices! Whether you're joining us for lunch or dinner, with friends or family, we invite you to savor the unique Peruvian flavors at Sazon!
