Been here on several occasions and haven’t been disappointed. Food is consistently great and so is the service.
Have recommended to family and friends.

This was not at all what I expected. The major disappointment was in the service. They never told us when our table was ready. The food was mediocre and we never so much as got a refill of our water. The Hollywood location is much better than this. I have no idea why the service was so bad but it truly was awful.

The food was extremely good, I ordered a strawberry lemonade (comes with no refills 🤪) and the Fettuccini Alfredo with the blackened Salmon....ummm so good. I had a side salad with cesar dressing, that wasn’t memorable...I didn’t even finish it...oh and our waitress was just ok.

The food was delicious my roasted vegetable was luke warm. Now the service on the other hand need some work. After being seated it took about 15 minute before someone greeted us to take our order. Once order was put in it didn’t take long before our food was brought to our table. The waiter didn’t come check on us to see if I wanted a refill on my coffee or if we wanted anything else. But they were quick to hand you your bill. Lol. All said in done I will go back...

I really liked there is quite an extensive menu to choose from, I had the (New) Medetaerian Pasta dish and the Avocado Toast for appetizer was very tasty!

I will be back...

We first visited Bossa Nova 2 weeks ago and enjoyed the food so much we're already back. With so many quality dining options, that says a lot about this restaurant. The food is lively and fresh with a wide assortment of choices. It even includes a wide range of vegetarian options that are truly amazing. The portion sizes are very generous, the food arrives quickly, and each menu item is balanced and packed with flavor.

Went their with my wife and some friends, first time for all of use. All four of us loved the food I got the French cut pork chop with mash and spinach, cooked to perfection, great flavor and the mash potatoes were amazing could not stop eating them. My wife an a friend got the Coulotte steak (Picanha) and the lived it cooked perfectly. The black beans had amazing flavor an the power grains I was told were very good. The final dish was the Cajun salmon that was very good. The food portions were very big and a great value. The cheeseballs were great. We all agreed we will be back very soon. Our server Tomas was amazing but only works at this location on mondays but was filling in. Steph possible the manager was super nice and very informative. Looking forward to going back

Service was excellent, servers were attentive and checked on my group and I frequently. Ordered the deluxe fries as an appetizer, but the fries were super skinny almost like hash browns, covered with some blue (feta) cheese, which I don't think it was necessary. Didn't really care too much about the deluxe fries tbh. I enjoyed the pizza very much! The place was cozy and looked really modern, perfect place to catch up with friends.
