We stopped off her on the way back to our hotel, we were greeted by a friendly chap and the menu looked varied & had some good veggie choices so in we went. The service was excellent as was the food. There were several vegetarian...options which was a pleasant surprise. The menu was varied enough to suit all in our party so just perfect. We actually ended up sitting next to the restaurant owner, who was sampling some of the dishes on the menu, so as we got chatting he invited us to join him in some sampling. The green veggie lasagne was excellent and the strawberry salad was delicious. We tried a couple of the deserts and the pomegranate mousse was just perfect. We had a wonderful meal with great service and would definitely eat here again. The restaurant itself was trendy and had a great ‘feel to it’.More

Bossa Nova Brazilian Cuisine Restaurant & Bar, 8630 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069, United States. This Brazilian restaurant has place for about 60 people. We we’re happy that we were able to get a table. The service from the main waiter was excellent. 90%...of the tables was filled the lead waiter managed to have small conversations, come with the drinks and have our food ordered within no time. Sorry for what we ordered in a Brazilian restaurant. We had spaghetti seafood and lasagna. Yes we must have been walking to a Italian but we did not have energy to walk so far 😎. The food was excellent when it comes to presentation, taste and temperature. We recommend this restaurant, besides Brazilian also good for other dishesMore

Had the BBQ-Bacon Burger. I thought it was outstandingly good! One of the best burgers I have ever had. The waiter recommended me the "Dragon Milk" dark beer to go along with (little whiskey-like taste, 11%). That just topped it off. I can recommend the...place very much. It was a bit fuzzy to get to the menu by texting (?). Something they should change I think. The waiter was very friendly too. Go for it!More

Wanted to dine here however they wouldn’t serve us. Showed late but an hour before they closed. Front of house turned us away while allowing others to get sat. Don’t come here late night. Or don’t come here unless you want to get turned away.

We ordered a large catering order and paid for it. Order arrived 2 hours late and they demanded an additional payment. They would not accept our receipt for payment and took the food away. The original payment left our account - but they refuse to...refund us as we ‘turned the food away’. Looks like a scam. AvoidMore

The calm homy backyard was the perfect place for our dinner after sightseeing all day! The menu was huuge so I’m sure anyone can find something from this place 😍 If you want to try something new, go for the fried plantains, they are delish....The portions are huge too so come with an appetite, however you can take the rest with you to go ☺️ The four of us ate & drank with only 36$ each including tips and taxes, so a really good price too! Highly recommend this place.More

After a short wait we were seated in this very busy restaurant. Great choice of food which was all excellent, although I would probably pass on the Fried Yucca! Service was good and would recommend this moderately priced restaurant.

As Brazilian living in U.S I’m always looking for nice Brazilians restaurants to eat when I travel around, a friend took me to Bossa Nova and I was impressed with the food and service there. Very friendly staff, in a nice area in Hollywood, and...the price was good. If you are in Hollywood and want to have a taste of Brazil, Bossa Nova is the option.More

Bossa's paella is really good. Is similar to the Portuguese paella, but with a Brazilian twist.
