I have dined here regularly for the last few years, & it never disappoints . This restaurant specializes in Brazilian cuisine, & it is delicious. The place is dripping in ambience, with a decor that evokes scenes of South America. It is located in the...More

Bossa Nova is the staple Brazilian restaurant in town and a neighborhood favorite. It's cozy, casual and brightly colored, not a space for intimacy but for a cheerful dinner out. The only negative is slightly disorganized service, but the ambiance is so pleasant it's not...More

Love this place! Always receive great service, delicious food and super convenient location. Decor is simple, not fancy, but food makes up for ambience that might not be date night worthy. My daughter loves their bakery next door.

When you first walk in.. it seems very relaxed but they sat us in the dinning area where everyone was having wine and water.. we requested a beer and it was as if we didn't fit in. As for the food itself.. it was just...More

We have been dining here since they opened. Their soups are always good - especially the hearts of palm. The braised Chicken on Fridays is delicious. The salpicao is a must try. Do not forget the cheese bread.

I'd heard of Cafe Bossa Nova before, but I've never been. This past Christmas my neighbors gave me and my family a gift card to CBN. I was so ecstatic and couldn't wait to try it out! Upon arrival I was already liking the vibes...More
