We chose dinner at Sazon because it's close to the Union Transfer music hall, where we were seeing a concert. We absolutely LOVED the stew, which is a meal in itself. The Empanadas and other dishes were equally yummy. Don't miss the fried plantain appetizer, our dinner partner said they were the best plantains she'd ever had! The owner is... More

Visited again last night - this place is great! The food is excellent - The service is excellent - can't beat the proximity of street parking. It's a BYOB - we opted for the Margarita setup - passion fruit 1st & Strawberry/Lemon to finish. Both times we felt right @ home- will definitely be back!!

It's not often you go to an ethnic restaurant that hasn't compromised their typical flavors to appeal to the US gastronomic taste. A small cozy familial dining restaurant reminiscent of Old Caracas Sabana Grande. My husband and I had a delightful evening accompanied by Venezuelan soccer fans rooting for their home team against Argentina's grand Messi... We'll, even though the... More

To start - the owner of this restaurant is a wonderful person who is very genuine and has a huge heart. She is very welcoming and takes pride in Venezuelan culture and it really shines through with how authentic and beautiful the food is - it was a pleasure meeting her. I came here with my significant other who is... More

My younger daughter, a college junior in Philadelphia, invited me to dinner at one of her favorite restaurants.. After a few minutes of circling around, we found a free, legal parking spot less than a block from Sazon. She had made a reservation, so we were greeted and seated quickly. Water and menus appeared almost instantly. We wanted to experience... More

I wanted to take my wife out to this place as a surprise for Valentine's Day because she loves chocolate and because I wanted to check this place out myself since the ratings were high. Well we went and we were totally impressed. We started first with a mixed salad that was called ensalata and it was fresh and tasted... More

I went to this restaurant in September 2015 for a weekend brunch.Three of us had breakfast entrees and one had fish tacos. All of our meals were delicious, freshly made, and beautifully presented. None of us could finish the food because the portions were very large. We ordered hot chocolate, a specialty of the restaurant, from a chocolate menu with... More

A very welcoming place! We booked a large group and they told us that we would have to order family style, which means a whole lot of food for only $30 (plus tip) per person. There were plenty of leftovers even though we had a couple of big eaters in the crowd. Lots of variety, including vegetarian options. They asked... More

An outstanding BYOB featuring arepas and other Venezuelan specialties with complex flavors. And then the desserts! And then the chocolate drinks and truffles. Friendly staff, too.

If you are craving Venezuelan food, you may be interested in trying this place out. I couldn't suggest otherwise because I have not had the opportunity to try out very many Venezuelan restaurants in my life and so I don't know how this place might compare with other places. But if you are like myself and just want to explore... More
