Great food crappy delivery times – This place has super delicious food but their delivery time sucks. We ordered for delivery and they were over 1 1/2 hours late consistently (and we only live a few blocks away), so if you plan on ordering from them, give yourself 2 hours or else you'll die of anger-starvation. We burned all our menus from bossa nova. We will never order from this restaurant again. Too bad because the food was good.
Nice Alternative – This place has a huge menu and has many veggie options as well.
They have a very nice patio section that has great people watching on Robertson BLVD. It can get pretty busy on the weekends.
They have some dishes that are geared towards Brazilian, but also have other types such and sandwiches and pasta.
They delivery is always on time and have never had a mix up from what we had ordered. Prices are very reasonable. Definitely check out this spot.
Cutest servers – I've been to this place many times and it's always a good experience. My friend and I were served by this CUTE guy from Argentina who was extremily friendly and gave us excellent service. Felt good to tip him! :)
Does this place NEED another glowing review - YES! – I work probably 2 miles from this place in WEHO - and while our lunch options are really limited this place ROCKS. I can honestly say that my coworkers and I order from here at least once a week because the menu is absolutely HUGE!
So far I have had the classic grill (chicken, black beans, rice, plantains and salsa), the chicken lasagna (OMFG - so good) and the Bossa salad with sea bass - all enormous portions - all excellent.
In short - I think we'll be ordering from here for a while - a good lunch find is priceless - and this place certainly fits the bill when it comes to tasty food, good delivery guys and decent lunch pricing when considering the portion size.
Five stars because the delivery is never late, the food is always yummy and everything seems very fresh.
Nothing special for something different – Bossa Nova sounds good, but so far every time I've gone I've walked away satisfied but not impressed. I'm not particular familiar with Brazilian cuisine, so maybe I've just been choosing the wrong items for my palate but after half a dozen times I'm just not getting the appeal. Outside seating is definitely preferable as indoors is dark but not in any romantic way. Well, not dark, but not really warm and bright. Anyway, I'll go with friends if they love Brazilian but it's not going to be my first recommendation any day.
Laidback & Tasty! – Up the street from a few pretentious Hollywood hot-spots, I find the delicious haven of Brazillian cuisine to be a true refreshing delight. I suggest going for the most interesting sounding dishes--Brazillian cuisine is truly wonderful, and you can't go wrong here, so goo for something unique.
It is always crowde because of the prime West Hollywood location, sometimes the patrons a re a bit rowdy because they just got out of a bar, or are perhaps going to one. Sometimes the service suffers a bit because of this factor, but I don't blame Bossa Nova entirely for that, though they should accomodate the clientele as best as possible.
Parking is a toughie-- I try to avoid weekend night and I can usually find parking at that park on San Vicente, or on Almont just one block West.
Authenticity in L.A. – A while back I was visiting family & friends in L.A., Being from NY one always must try new places. I was there for a month, all I kept stumbling upon were over rated fusion joints! No authenticity anywhere! Low and behold, a great friend of ours mentioned that we try this restaurant by his place. I could not get over the decor, but the FOOD was yummy! My next visit wouldn't be complete without round 2! May I also highly recommend something on the menu.
Bolinho de Bacalhau
A Brazilian speciality -cod fish croquetes deep fried Delicious!!!!!!!!!!!
Bring your appetite to this lively and casual WeHo eatery that attracts fun crowds and post-club revelers with monster-size American-Brazilian dishes. – The Scene
It's all about the outdoor people-watching at this popular boys' town eatery. On any given night, crowds converge on the lot's plastic green tables and chairs as a handful of young delivery guys briskly make their rounds for the restaurant's robust delivery service.
Brazilian herbs and spices infuse pasta dishes, sandwiches and salads that are doled out in portions big enough to feed a small village. Coxinha--a cone-shaped pocket of deep fried dough filled with tender shreds of chicken and cream cheese--is a worthy starter. Citrus marinated flat-pounded chicken breast, steak and seafood are complemented by soft and buttery-sweet plaintains while pasta entrees come with a choice of noodle. Carbonara is a smoky burst of flavor that is best paired with the delicately textured gnocchi. Even side orders--such as the deliciously creamy mashed potatoes--are almost meals in themselves.
Hits: Service is friendly and knowledgeable, the food is fresh, and the prices are very wallet-friendly.
Misses: Parking, parking, parking. Located directly across the street from fellow perennial favorite The Abbey, finding a nearby reasonably priced spot is a real challenge.
THE BEST! – I love Bossa Nova. I eat here at least once a week (They have a few locations, one of which is right next to work!) Everything is great here.
Great food but HORRIBLE service – This restaurant is wonderfully located, but the decor is absolutely awful, with plastic tables and plastic chairs right next to each other. This is definitely not the best place for a date!
The service is pretty bad, the waiters are almost nonexistent, we waited almost as long for our drinks than for our meal!!!
However the food is REALLY good and very reasonably priced. I like their cuisine and would go back even though I would certainly recommend the one on Sunset where the service is relatively better.
