Our name Bossa Nova is derive from a genre of Brazilian music which was compose and written during the 1950's and 60's. 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. It will be a great satisfaction to cook for you and make your dining experience with us deep gratifying. Aurelio & Francisco

We went with another couple, and what a great experience! The waiter is one of the best we had-Fernando was funny and attentive. The food was just pure delicious. I don't think you can go wrong with this great menu.
We shared the Avery salad and a bar b q chicken pizza. Our friends also shared two dishes-Plenty of food....We will be back, and often, it was a great experience both in terms of the food quality and the service. Prices are very reasonable! They deserve all 5 stars!

I'm so glad I found this place! A little taste of Brazilian cuisine, without having to leave Los Angeles. The food was outstanding however I recommend sharing as the portions are massive, although they allow you to take home anything you couldn't eat in one sitting. The waiters were very friendly and accommodating. Lovely atmosphere also.

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!

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.

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.
