I used Grub Hub for delivery so I cant speak on the actual restaurant but the food came in a reasonable amount of time and it was delicious.

We did a large takeout order and everything was ready in half an hour. Every entree was fabulous. Kudos to the beef skewers, plantains, mashed potatoes, pepperoni pizza, chicken piccata on bed of linguini, and lasagna. Great service and food.

Great food and lost of choices. Also a very tempting wine list. The service is friendly and helpful and attentive though they are very busy there. From pasta to meat, the food is always very good.

I had traditional chicken with beans and veggies that were tired and over cooked. Chicken was tough. Beans were decent but overall not sure why so many people like this place. Can’t say I’d ever go back. Cheese puffs or bread were Delish though!More

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. Aurelio & Francisco
