Great food. I visited this restaurant twice while in LA and it did not disappoint. Its a pretty busy restaurant but service was quick and attentive. Looking forward to my next visit.

My favorite dishes are shrimp stroganoff and salmon dish. However, my family love other delicious dishes from the steak to the pasta.

LOTS of good food in a bustling atmosphere at a reasonable price. Why the average rating? When we first arrived the hostess ignored us and others waiting and seated other later arriving parties of the same size. That soured whole dining experience.

This place is reasonably average, like most places to eat in LA. I would go again though having said that.

We are disappointed to hear that, Sophie. We strive to provide the best food and service possible and to be considered an average place is not a good sign. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us customer’s feedback are very important for our improvement.

Whether I'm eating healthy (like a Bossa's salad) or hearty (pasta or pizza), Bossa Nova has consistently good food and an interesting array of options. The fact that it's open late is also a big plus. Love this place!

Description
Bem-vindo!
It is our warmest pleasure to make your dining experience absolutely enjoyable.

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.
