    Good food and ambiance. Also, the restaurant has a good flamenco band on Fridays. Service lacks somewhat. Ordered a paella for 4 and received a paella for 2. I would give this place a second chance.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 10/17/2014
    The food was great by far one of the best paellas we have had in a while. However, better than the entree were the Tapas. The assortment of Tapas was great and although my group only sampled about 9 different Tapas they were perfectly put together. Pricing was good considering the quality of all the foods. The flamenco show was in good taste and the sound was at a pleasant level unlike other shows we've been to where you couldn't have a conversation with someone next to you. Now for the downside, the place is small so if you plan to go i would strongly suggest reservations i saw plenty of people get turned away. Also, although the staff tries to accommodate they are short on staff making wait times for drinks and other items was long slow.

    If you decide to go this restaurant on a Friday or Saturday when they have their Flamenco performances, don't be in a rush. This European-inspired restaurant is the place to go when you want to take your time and enjoy the performance while you also enjoy several of the great tapas options off the menu. The show is as much a part of the experience as the food. You'll be encouraged to participate so, if it's your birthday, expect to find yourself on stage with the flamenco dancers. All of this is in an intimate (this is not a large restaurant) atmosphere. Be sure to make a reservation or you'll find yourself sitting at the bar or at the high tops outside. My out of town friend considered it a real treat!

    We went with a party of 6 and were seated promptly with our reservation (through Open Table), we shared many Tapas and the Seafood Paella was excellent (we ordered the Paella as soon as we were seated as it takes about 45 minutes for this meal to be prepared) we started with the Mediterranea Salad (two orders for the whole table), enjoyed the Chipirones a La Vasca (squid in ink sauce), Chorizo al Jerez (sausage), Patatas a La brava (potatoes with pepper sauce), Champinones al Ajillo (sauteed mushrooms in garlic sauce) and Pulpo a La Gallega (boiled octopus with garlic and paprika). Did I mention the Paella was excellent!

    This was our second visit to Buleria, but our first exposure to their live Flamenco group of 3. We really enjoy the "small plates" of carefully-prepared tapas, and learned it's best not to order them all at once, because we found our little table nearly hidden by the many dishes. Over 2 visits, we ordered gratin eggplant, dates wrapped in bacon & cheese, charbroiled asparagus w/Serrano ham, a sampler platter of sliced Spanish meats and cheeses, the delicious Mediterranea salad, shrimp w/garlic in olive oil (the Mrs. said "o.k."), and a couple more. The portions are generous and we took home leftovers. Each feast was accompanied by toasty bread w/olive oil for dipping and glasses of good Spanish wine. Almond cake made a fine ending.

    Had read the positive reviews, and fan of tapas so looked forward to eating at Buleria. Enjoyed the tuna salad, stuffed squid, pork kebob and lentil soup. Ordered the grilled fish, but ended up with fish cooked in marinara sauce. More of a grilled fish fan, but friends enjoyed the dish we were served. Live music was too loud for such a small place. Hard to have a conversation. However, overall excellent choice of tapas, probably something for every taste. Excellent value.

    We order tapas, sangria and a paella for 2. The tapas arrived and the sangria was served when we finished the tapas. The waitress has an attitude, she took for ever to take care of us, and this is a small restaurant, fortunately another waiter took over, because he notice the situation. The sangria was awful, not sweet at all.

    We have taken several friends to Buleria at different times because we find it checks every item on the list. The small staff is warm and helpful. The food is outstanding. I love the dates wraped in bacon and stuffed with goat cheese. This last trip we took some real foodies with us and the loved the stuffed squid. This restaurant will be at the top of our list for out of town guest and a nice evening out with my husband.Gracias

    The space is small and on Friday and Saturday better have a reservation the music is a nice addition but the menu is limited and should have a bit more variety. The paella with seafood and chicken and sausage had too much of the latter and min chicken, but was freshly made and took about 45 min.

    This is the fourth and last time that I am going to Buleria. I decided to pay cash for the meal and the waiter came back indignant because I had not left a big enough tip? I had expected him to settle the bill and bring me back the change. Then I would have left the appropriate tip.. this is how is done. If the tip is mandatory ... then put it on the bill.. as they do in Spain. Best Regards,

    The Food was wonderful, when I came and the waiter was stretched so thin he came and went without opening a door, They would have a lot more repeat business if they had service to match the quality of the food.. Even though they are tapas, they should not come out one at a time with a long wait in between. Had to ask 4 times before we got a basket of bread begged for water, and never got a refill in 2+ hours... disappointing

    Other reviewers have made this the number one restaurant in Hollywood FL. We live in the area and wanted to try something different. Maybe we caught them on a bad night, being the day after Valentines. Service was poor. We waited fifteen minutes after being seated without any acknowledgement by the staff. We had to flag down another waiter, who took our drink order. The rest of the night's service was similar. We ordered the Paella without shrimp, as my wife is allergic. After waited 45 minutes for the meal, they had made our Paella with shrimp and it had to be sent back. Once the the Paella arrived, it was good. Not the best I've had, but good. THe bright point of the evening was the music and Flamenco dancers

    Having read other reviews that were very flattering, perhaps we expected too much. Although the single server tried his best, he was the only person visible in the restaurant who was working. That made for delays throughout the service and no time for any friendly chatter. The paella was ok but nothing special. The seafood portions were all quite small, so it was mostly rice. Just was not what we thought would be happening that night. And the restaurant itself is just ordinary.

    We went for dinner on a Saturday. Make sure you make reservations! The place is small but comfortable and quaint. The Flamenco show was very good considering you are in Florida. They are very lively and the crowd joins in the fun. The tapas were very good specially the Chorizos. We ordered a Seafood Paella for 4 and it took 45 minutes during that time we were enjoying the show, wine and tapas. The Paella was great and a good portion. Do not go here if you are in a hurry. Eat like the Spaniards. It was above our expectations! We will return. Try the not so famous Albariño wine ( white wine). Enjoy!
