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 time won't necessarily save you a 20-30 min wait.

Over the years, I have eaten at over 20 Peruvian restaurants and now I can understand why this one has long lines and loyal diners: the food is inventive, delicious, and fresh. Try the ceviche sampler. This is a small restaurant so make a reservation. Eating here was one of the highlights of my trip to Santa Rosa and Ukiah.

Went to Sazon for my wife's birthday dinner. One of our favorite places. Food is always the best and service is great. Owner Jose is as friendly and accommodating as one could hope for.. Couldn't have wine because he is just purchasing business from his parents, BUT he more than made up for it in other ways. A true find... More

This is an interesting Peruvian restaurant and the food is very good. It is tiny. I think it seats about 30 people. Their liquor license is suspended, though, so they have no wine/beer/anything alcoholic to serve you AND you can't bring it in either! They make their own desserts and the cheesecake we shared was fabulous. It will be a... More

Glad we stopped here! All four of our lunches were delicious. I personally loved my down home pulled chicken stew. Ultimate comfort food. Very nice server who obviously loves the restaurant. Recommend the purple corn beverage.

So-so food with very bad service. Our waitress visited our table once, and we waited for our order for 50 minutes. My husband's food came out first, and mine came out 10 minutes after his. Awful. Food not that great, especially for how long we waited.

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Santa Rosa. Delicious food and the chef owner is very clued in to his clients. A must visit.

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!
