Food was great. Our waiter was very nice and offer great suggestions. I have been to their sister property Sofrito's and they are amazing so I was glad the quality was the same.

Definitely a great restaurant
Definitely a great restaurant for groups, celebrations, or just a fun night out. I celebrated my birthday here two nights in a row! The food and drinks were amazing!

A definite Si!
My first visit but won't be my last! Only went with 2 other friends but based on the fun and noise level, this place was made for groups!
Great red sangria ( I understand the white was too ) and the plates are HUGE!! And Delicious! I typically don't like sauces based on peppers but truly loved what I tried here. The mofongo was magnificent - as was the arroz con calamari - a must try!
If you want something other then the million Italian restaurants in NY, go to this fabulous place in Soho. Be advised - the music is loud but fun!

Took a co-worker there for
Took a co-worker there for lunch for her birthday and had a nice meal. We were seated quickly and the wait staff was very patient with the indecisive b'day girl! Good food and good drinks...nice sized portions. Would definitely go back again.

Outstanding find, WEPA!!!!
We had some of the best Spanish food since our trips to PR. The Pernil is huge . The food is outstanding. The prices are decent (except for the drinks, they do not make the drinks big enough to charge $14.00). Other than that, we loved it and will definitely return.

Great service. I went here
Great service. I went here for an early Sunday dinner around 6PM, the noise was moderate at this time as there were not many people dining at this time. The service was great, our waiter took our orders when we wanted and brought our drinks, apps and entree out fairly quickly - though we did have to wait a bit for the check to arrive. The food was really great, this was my second time coming here and it was as good as it was the first time. I've also been here on a Thursday or Friday night and this place was packed! It's certainly a popular restaurant in this neighborhood with decent prices for the quality and amount of food you get. Best to come in groups and on the weekend. Gazpacho, Paella, pinuelos are great! Recommended!

What I expected
Sazon is good. The menu has typical Latin American cuisine. Plenty to choose from.
I went on a Monday night so it was not the same energy as I would anticipate on a Fri/Sat night. However it still got loud. I think this is a fun place for groups, but not quiet enough for a romantic dinner.

Went for a business lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The food was very flavorful and fresh. I had the daily special which was marinated steak tacos. All elements of the taco were really well prepared. I will definitely come back for dinner and look forward to trying other items on the menu.

Fall off the bone deliciousness!
Visited with a friend for the first time during restaurant week - Summer of 2013. The service was great but a little bothered by the automatic 20% gratuity added to a check for a table of two?
The meal started off with a delicious basket of garlic toasted bread accompanied by a bean spread for a appetizer. I had their delicious chicken &shrimp empanadas as a appetizer. The pernil and was not a dissappointment, the portion of meat served was huge and the taste was exactly what you want - garlicky and very tender! For dessert I had the lemon cheesecake and was also served a sample of the best tasting coquito I ever had! My only dissapointment was that the coquito sample was small and served in a shot glass LOL I'll definitley be back!

Food was great but place to Noisy
The food here is awesome. The first time we dined here was the middle of the week so the music and noise level was okay, but when we dined here on Friday Night the noise level was so high you could barely hear yourself talk. Won't be dining on a Friday night unless we're staying for the dancing.

Great Restaurant Week Deal
I went to Sazon for restaurant week. The amount of food you get is enormous. I ordered the calamares as an appetizer and arroz con pernil for my entree. The flavor of my food was deliciously and authentic.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have been to Sazon several times and they never fail to amaze me. This time around I went with my girlfriends to celebrate my birthday. I usually order the Pernil but since my hubby and I visited PR this summer, I was craving mofongo I ordered the Ropa Vieja mofongo and boy was it absolutely delicious!!! I believe it was new to the menu or maybe I just never realized it before but it brought back memories from my trip to PR. If youhave never dined here before, you don't know what you're missing!! I promise you that you will not be disappointed!!

Booked Sazon during restaurant week and was pleasantly surprised. Portions were plentiful and everything tasted great. I had the seafood paella, popcorn shrimp and chocolate cupcake for dessert. The entire group enjoyed their meal. Also ordered the white sangria - totally delish!

Great food. Bartenders don't
Great food. Bartenders don't want to really serve food at the bar it seems. Great drinks and happy hour.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Highly recommend the vegetarian paella. Our waiter Antonio was attentive and quick.
Looking forward to going back and trying something different!

Great time last night as we celebrated our 19th Anniversary. Food presentation was creative, and a compliment to the food itself.The atmosphere was alive and even though the chatting among guests was loud, you can still hear the great music in the background. I had the Red Snapper with Coconut Rice. DELICIOUS! This bought back memories from childhood when I used to go to Dominican Republic and eat fried fish by the beach

The most authentic and delicious Puerto Rican food I've ever had. Growing up in a Puerto Rican household, I've had my share of fantastic food, Eating at Sazon was like a trip down memory lane. The portion sizes are outrageous, one appetizer could feed a small nation. The ambiance is energetic and fun. Definitely going back with friends next time.

Our experiences at Sazon have always been exceptional..... For our 30th wedding anniversary we ate pernil, skirt steak, fish, and salmon. Our dishes' presentation was visually appealing, portions were huge, and the food was deliciously tasty, and reminded me of my mom's Puerto Rican home style cooking. Due to Sazon's huge menu selection, we usually try something new each time we dine there. The General Manager, Eddie Rodriguez, is enthusiastic, detail oriented, and possesses excellent interpersonal and organizational skills. I also appreciated the wait staff, especially Madhi, who served us with delight.
Sazon left an indelible impression on us, therefore we returned three days later with friends. We look forward to Sazon's Sunday brunch.

First time at Sazon and will definitely come back. Parking was easy and seated right away. Menu selection was pretty good as well as wine list. Waiter very attentive. I did have a concern as to why the restaurant had bouncers outside there doors though ?? Food was good. The beans could have used more flavor, my wife found them to be rather bland.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
The service and atmosphere
The service and atmosphere was excellent. Unfortunately I did not like the food at all, my family is Puerto Rican and I have visited the island many many times and the food at Sazon was not very authentic or flavored properly.
I had the pernil and was shocked that they served the entire loin on a plate uncut. It was dry and not flavored and the rice was bland. My friend had Mofongo which had hard crispy bacon bits in it and every time you bit it was like eating an eggshell.
There was no flavor and it was dry.

It was my first time here & like most times when you try out a new place, I went in with no high expectations. I was pleasantly surprised by the ambiance. The overall experience was better than I anticipated. The servings in food portion really reminds you of a Latino household; plenty to go around. The noise level was moderate, more energetic than amything else. The interiors of this place really complement its food & energy. I was a happy camper.

Watch out for the already
Watch out for the already included 20% gratuity when you get your bill. Its not pointed out by wait staff when they deliver the check. We only had a party of four.

Excellent place to have a good time
If you want some delicious Puerto Rican food with a bit of flare this is the place. If you want to have a good time after work and have a couple drinks while listening to some good music check them out, Thursday nights is when the weekend really starts.

Good Food, Good Vibe
I really enjoyed dining here. The food was great (only a slight difference between Sazon and Sofritos). I thought everything would have been exactly the same. I must say that I prefer Sazon any day.

The food was excellent, the staff was excellent and the service was excellent!!!!

Food is amazing....
The taste if the food here is just ridiculous! But the cocktails are way overpriced. If you don't mind a lot of noise in the background and paying almost $30 for two drinks, then this place is great!

A nite out on the town...
My hubby & I made reservations off of Open Tanle, last minute at that! I had previous reservations at another restaurant in Midtown but shortly after herring out of the Battery Tunnel our car completely shut off. So we had to get the car towed to my hubby's business & we missed out reservation. We were seated within reasonable timing from our reservation. The waiter wasn't amazing but I understood because he seemed a bit over whelmed with the lathe party he was tending to also. The food was good, ordered the grilled chicken. Then after we ate, we paid & went about our evening. Would I return, Yes, would I recomed Ues. It was a good experience.

Great time with great company
Have been meaning to try this place for a while and finally got a few people from work together and went. Food and service was great. The white sangria is highly recommended. The only thing that was the doggie bags got mixed up and two people took the other ones food. Definitely will go again.

Food was great, the drinks was great, the service was good. I like when the waiter made me feel like I made an excellent choice to eat porkchops.

They give you more than enough food for the money, great drinks also!

Had lunch here on a Monday afternoon and it was great! The servers were very
accomodating and the drinks were great.
We had the $25 prix fixe menu and it was a great value. Definitely would return!
