I have eaten here on and off for around 25 years. The food is always good, the service is good, and it is an all around nice place to dine.

I chose this restaurant because of all the positive reviews and, after eating here, I am mystified why this restaurant was so highly rated. Granted, you get lots of food and the prices are reasonable. But the food is nothing to write home about. My sea bass was a little dry. It comes with two starches (odd!) unless you pay... More

I love the food but I am not sure it's worth the price comparing to other Brazilian restaurants I have been to. If you order from the lunch specials then it's not so bad but other wise everything adds up and you may as well eat at a traditional Brazilian restaurant. The food is yummy and that's probably why they're... More

Nice restaurant on the Sunset blv., simple menu, plain design, tasty food. Try their pizzas, but make sure you you've got room, large pizzas are actually large, they mean it! Try to start with a small soup before pizza. Come earlier, place gets packed up after 17.30.

I frequent the West Hollywood area for business a lot....And Bossa Nova is one of my favorite restaurants..The staff is great the food is delicious and the price is right. Everytime I go I try something new off of the menu and they have not let me down yet..I tried the cajun chicken last night and it was to die... More

Just came back from this restaurant with my wife. Fantastic food and big portions. The seabass risotto was simply beautifull. Lovely service; the gentleman serving us was very friendly, funny and helpful. Price for starters, mains and a bottle of wine came to less than 100$; unbeatable. Highly recommended.
