Nice Afternoon Lunch

We stopped by Bossa Nova for a late lunch before heading downtown to a Dodgers game. The place wasn't super busy and we got a seat outside which was nice for people watching. Everything he had to eat was great. They made a slight mistake on my girlfriends order fixed it right away. Will be going... read more

Dropped in here for dinner on basis of other TA reviews and was glad I did. The service and food was excellent. Ordered the most popular dish on menu chicken and hot peppers in Madeira sauce and it was delicious, spicy but not too hot. Overall everything was perfect, highly recommended

We had been up for almost 35 hours (after flight from Australia) and came to this place to unwind have a drink and eat something nice. It was recommended by the airbnb place we stayed in. It did not disappoint. The beers were very cold. The waiters were exceptionally friendly and accommodating. The prices were very reasonable too. I had... More

They have one of the best bruschettas I have ever tried. Loved their pasta as well. Their servings are huge, and service was excellent. Would love to come back for sure!

I don't usually comment on the size of a meal but seriously you can share a lot of the entrees with another person. There is be near my house in Weho and one near my work in Santa Monica. I've probably gone eight times between lunch dinner and pick up and was happy with the food every time.

We found this restaurant through Trip Advisor. The food and service was excellent. Our waiter was very friendly and gave good suggestions about the food. We enjoyed the meat rice and bean combination entrees. I had chicken, my sister had fire chicken, and my brother-in-law had shrimp. All were very tasty. My son had a BBQ pork sandwich, but didn't...

The menu is broad and the quality of food was really good, but it was a bit busy and there was a small wait to get in. The client base was varied so it's hard to determine what kind of vibe they are aiming for but I guess that means there's something for everyone? Worth a visit regardless.

Staying in Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
