This music is a fusion of samba and jazz of which has become the most popular music in Brazil. Bossa Nova is not a fast food establishment. We take our time to freshly prepare your meal. Our commitment for excellent food quality and ingredients goes back to 1993 when we open our very first restaurant in West Hollywood.

For being a Brazilian restaurant, they sure had a large selection of Italian food! It was an overall ok experience. The food was nothing to write home about, but the service was great and the restaurant itself was in a good location.

“BRILLIANT”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 5, 2012

Our first eatery in USA, LA and it was a goodie!! Saturday night LA Pride crowd meant it was crowded but good and great for people watching, 11pm late dining option was fantastic. My dish was chicken pasta in lemon cream sauce and it was DELICIOUS. Very, very happy to recommend Bossa Nova to anyone staying nearly. Go see yourself, you'll see the crowds of folks in the know-how of where to get a great munch from.

“Something for Everyone”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2012

While they do have great Brazilian entrees, the menu has a wide range of choices. Everyone in our party had something different ranging from a pizza to stroganoff. None of us were disappointed. Everything was great. Reasonable prices, attentive service. Nothing was lacking.

“Dinner with my daughter”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

Te Bossa Nova restaurant I had a wonderful and delicious meal at was located in West Los Angeles on Pico Blvd. I had mozzarella bruschetta, and cochina pear shaped appetizers which was divine. The bread is a meal in itself. I love the Lasagna. This is done outstandingly. The coconut flan dessert is mouthwatering great. The service was great and fast. Valet parking is very inexpensive and your best bet for parking. It s under five dollars.

“Brazilian restaurant.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

Brazilian restaurant where you can eat different kind of food like pasta or typical brazilian plates. I ate a beef with bananas in the terrace. The quantity of the dishes were enough. Good price for the food. The service was also good.
