Flavors are honest and distinct. This is a healthy place to dine at. A bit expensive, but still a good value.

Following the raving reviews, we came with high expectations. The restaurant is a very simple place, the service is fine, and the food is mediocre. While the ceviches were good, the lamb shank dish was pretty bad. All in all, not an impressive experience at...More

This place is amazing! For such a small place they serve up a big menu. We really enjoyed the three small plates and shared a larger chicken dinner. The presentation was beautiful and the food delicious.

Love this tiny place that has a great cross-section of traditional Peruvian dishes. Last time we visited, they stopped serving alcoholic beverages and we missed their amazing Pisco Sour. The place is very busy at weekend nights and even reserving a table for a specific...More

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!
