Sazon - Santa Rosa
Fantastic Peruvian Food!We tried a variety of small plates and there wasn't one single bite that wasn't perfect. It was fun to try authentic food from Peru and learn about it from our truly wonderful waitress. We had a somewhat late reservation and the place was still buzzing when we arrived...but we were the last to leave this very fun restaurant.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMI quite enjoy Sazon. The chevichesI quite enjoy Sazon. The cheviches are quite good, and my top fave is a seafood paella-like dish that is the bomb.
I have never been a big fan of seafood, but I love this place. My only concern? I wish Sazon were larger.
Juan Jose has done a great thing with this restaurant. He also happens to be a really nice guy. A vibrant addition to Santa Rosa's "Latin Quarter".

Our server was delightful, answering our questions about the delicious cuzco corn and the various ceviche dishes. Everything we ate was wonderful. We will definitely be coming back!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for a small group--weGreat for a small group--we had 6. This place never disappoints!Great service and food that is unique.4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI've never tried PeruvianI've never tried Peruvian food before but enjoy new things, so I jumped at the chance to take a break from wine tasting and rich food. Chicha morada was a surprise - it's a purple corn punch, sweet but not overly so, with cinnamon and a tangy taste that was unfamiliar but so interesting! Very refreshing. I loved the Ceviche Mango: really fresh prawns in a delicious mango sauce with a kick. I had to dip my plantain chips in the mango sauce after all the prawns were gone, which was sadly not a very effective way to soak up the deliciousness. The side of fried green plantain chips was generous, and the plantains were sliced the long way - very pretty!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMBest surprise meal in yearsI've had three outstanding and unique dinners. Each time our waiter was incredibly helpful, cheerful and attentive. All three time the staff would make suggestions that furthered our enjoyment. Sazon is the buzz of Santa Rosa do make reservations. It's my new favorite place to dine. Best cerviche ever. And the best flour less chocolate cake.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food!We visited during restaurant week. It's located in the Roseland area and the crowd when we visited was largely Hispanic and cheerful, perhaps not surprising since it's a Peruvian restaurant. Sazon is a small restaurant and fairly crowded so reservations would be recommended. The food was excellent. The "owner" was attentive and very helpful in describing plates, contents and preparation. We'll definitely return.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant for thoseGreat restaurant for those who are looking for something different and appreciate the distinct flavors of Peruvian food!!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOur experience at Sazon wasOur experience at Sazon was excellent.
