“Great food and service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013 via mobile

My boyfriend and i went to Bossa Nova on Friday night,we wasted a good 30 minutes looking for parking. The he place was packed & there was a long line outside,we waited about 45 mins and we were seated. I loved the atmosphere, we had the most amazing waiter Fernando, very attentive and personable. I ordered the Manuela's Special pasta and it was yummy,they didn't skimp on meat, the portion was huge with plenty of shrimp, chicken, and prosciutto. My boyfriend had the bbq bacon burger with deluxe fries on the side. The fries were delicious with the cream sauce, bleu cheese, and gorgonzola. We had plenty of leftovers and the prices are more than affordable. I will definitely be back!

“Nicest food we had in our trip across 8 states.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Went here after reading trip advisor and a recommendation from our hotel. We went about 9.30pm and it was packed. Had to wait about a half hour for a table but there's a good reason! The food was amazing. I had the sea bass and risotto. Definitely the best meal we'd eaten across the states. The service was brilliant. Our waiter was very chatty and got us our food quickly especially considering how packed the restaurant was. He also gave us recommendations for bars in the area.
I would definitely head here if you're in LA but either make a reservation or be prepared to wait.

“One word: excellent..”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

We found this restaurant during our trip in Hollywood. It is really a fantastic restaurant. Good food, large portions and very tasty food!
A must 'do' for anyone that likes good food and a small price.

“ALWAYS Good.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Bossa Nova may be popular and the trendy spot, but it's CONSISTENTLY been this way. And for good reason! Bossa Nova backs up all of what you've heard. It's delicious and a great place to socialize with your friends. You can go during lunch or all the way late night, post-party. It's opened until 4am. Beware though, it's always busy. So make sure you don't come on a completely empty stomach as you might be waiting awhile. The parking sucks because it is, after all, in Hollywood. I sneak and park in Ralph's down the street, but don't get caught or you'll get towed for sure. At least go buy something from them first.

Everything on the menu is scrumptious. I eat the beef stroganoff or a pizza. The Bossa salad is BOMB in your mouth. Love it! I'm usually too full for a dessert but have tried all of them. EXCELLENT.

We got the tip for this restaurant in Las Vegas and we were absolutely surprised. The food was excellent, the service prompt and friendly and all for a nice price. We will definitely return.
