Sazón is owned and operated by Jose and Manny Navarro. We are the only authentic, and highest reviewed Peruvian Restaurant north of the Golden Gate Bridge. Sazón serves up a variety of appetizers, ceviches, soups and salads, vegetarian plates, sandwiches and classic meals.



Our family is originally from Lima, where authentic Peruvian recipes were passed down by our great-grandmother, Maria Olinda, who herself came from Peruvian, African, Spanish and Italian ancestry. Peruvian cuisine fuses different periods from the South American country's history, from the ancient Inca empire through the Spanish conquest, which brought in slaves from Africa and China; further influences came from Italian and Japanese immigrants, blending indigenous foods of Peru and cooking methods of four continents into a unique taste



Thank you for visiting our page, we look forward to seeing you soon!

We were a little disappointed with our visit, however, the grandkids enjoyed their meal. Some items were tasty, others were bland. A corn dog for a child’s meal at $7? Other prices seemed high also. Not much ambiance, and when a guy came in and started to paint a wall I was surprised. Service was good and helpful. I’m not sure I will return.

This was our first time to this restaurant. There are two doors into the restaurant: one of the doors had a deli sign above it and the other did not. So we went into the non-deli side. It was reminiscent of a little taqueria with just a few tables. After telling the "hostess" that we had a reservation for 4, she directed us to a table without asking the name of our party. I thought that was a little odd. But as our meal progressed, we realized there was a door into leading into another dining room that was much nicer with more comfortable chairs. Had we followed the deli sign, we would have been in that section. However, the food will not draw me back, comfy chairs or no. The pork stew was delicious, the fish was ok, the roast chicken was good.

I went to Sazon for the first time this past weekend with three friends. The food at Sazon was phenomenal! The seafood was so fresh. Authentic Peruvian recipes. Jose (the owner) and our waitstaff Oscar treated us so well! While I live 1.5 hrs away, I'm already planning my next visit!

Yum!!! Food was so tasty! Service was not very good - food took a LONG time, they brought out the dessert menu before our dinner had been served, and we were rarely checked on. The tastiness of the food helped us overlook the poor service, though.

Our servers were excellent and so was the food. This was Restaurant Week, so the price for lunch was excellent too.

Sazon has expanded into the space next door (I think it was a deli in its former life). We sat in the original restaurant, but I’m so happy that the restaurant has been able to add footage—obviously a tribute to their great food and loyal following.

The credit card statement shows $25 more than was signed for! The check was split between two parties so possible that people have signed wrong checks too. Will investigate and update review accordingly.

Everytime I go to this establishment, I order something different. I've had no regrets thus far. The lomo saltado and carnitas are absolutely devine. Try a sazon cooler while you're at it. Everything from this place tastes fresh, light, and delicious

Though I have eaten at Sazon 5 times before, this time was a supreme disappointment. Our 6:30 pm reservation got us a table at 7:30 pm - and not a well placed table at that. I had the Peruvian sea food stew which was awful. The shrimps tasted like they were frozen and old, the one part of a crab claw looked very old with almost no meat and what was there was tough and years from fresh. What precious little else was in the bowl was in too small a quantity to evaluate. Yes, the dish was so very small that I had to get something to eat when I left. And that was $26! The service was slow and the waiters were unattentive. I think Sazon's popularity has launched it on a serious downward slope. I do not recommend Sazon and I will not eat there again.

Due to the high quality ingredients here the food is better than in Lima, Peru. The owner, Jose, has increased the size by obtaining the room adjacent. He did a nice job in remodeling. Our time there on Wednesday was a very busy evening. It needed an additional wait staff member. The owner needed roller skates he was so busy. It caused us to have long waits. However, the food was excellent and plated with style.

We love Sazon. The food is superb. It is not the most quiet, romantic atmosphere, but we enjoy the character of the place a great deal. We went for my birthday and I was treated like royalty. They gave me a complimentary Pisco Sour and a delicious dessert. We had traditional Peruvian cuisine, which took us back to a trip we made to Peru a year and a half ago. I recommend this restaurant to anyone who is interested in trying authentic Peruvian food. You're in for a real treat.

We haven't been in since they remodeled. They took over the entire building, adding a deli that is also additional seating for the restaurant. Cozy decor. Great service from several people, they all work together to make sure you're happy. We were! Great food, great wine list, great service. We'll definitely be back!

We were a party of 6. My dinner came out first before the other 5. I waited a bit, then slowly started eating my dinner. I was done before the other 5 in our party were served. My portion was small but absolutely delicious! I could have eaten a meal twice the size, and my husband and I split an appetizer first. As much as I loved my meal, I would not order it again, as I went home hungry :(

Food was a bit better than average but service was slow and atmosphere was horrible. The seating was uncomfortable, room way too cold and pretty ugly. I would only go back if they did a remodel of the dining room.
