Bossa Nova WLA-ridiculously bad

While I am sometimes surprised by the mediocrity of some places popular on CH, I guess my standards were just out of alignment.

Cheesy bread puffs were undercooked.

My salad's dressing was poured on top instead of tossed. My sandwich's BBQ sauce was too sweet (I will allow that BBQ sauce has many variations, but I think it would have been better with a little tanginess.)

My boyfriend's mushroom sauce on his steak was oversalted, and the mushrooms were undercooked. Mashed potatoes were uninspired. His grilled vegetables were probably the best thing we had. Actually, he did not even get the dish that he ordered, but that was not too big of a deal.

Anyone have any suggestions for that area of Pico? (I often eat at Jaipur, the Indian restaurant near Pico/Westwood.)
