    It was a perfect experience from the moment we walked in to Bulla. The hostess Ana Maria accommodated our request to sit at a normal level table due to my mom's disability. Our server Ana was extraordinary. She was very knowledgeable about the menu and patient with our questions. Her suggestions from the menu were all perfect. Will be returning with friends and family this coming Saturday.

    Let me start by saying that I have spent some time in Spain touring the Rioja region of wines. So I like to think that I know Tapas. And i'm hear to tell you that Bulla Gastrobar does not dissapoint! I have also spent the last 26 years working in the service industry. The restaurant has a very modern look but an upscale casual feel to it. It was very busy so i would definatly recomend getting reservations. We were greeted by our server Anna and she was fantastic! Her service was great, never trying to upsell to much but instead she properly guided us through the menu. And her suggestions were right on! The food was fantastic from the meat and cheese board to the small plates. WE WILL BE BACK!

    I was with my daughter, and while we had a good time and enjoyed the food, the vibe was very couples oriented, whether one or groups. I have never noticed such a vibe before, so I would say going with/as couple(s) is a good idea. We ordered approximately 7 dishes, but tend to overeat. Our favorite had potato chips and cheese amongst the ingredients. Sorry I can't be more helpful without the menu in front of me. :-)

    The bar service was horrible. The food (mediocre) started arriving before the drinks. We had to ask for a manager to get our drinks. Won't be going back, it was very dissapointing, specially for us locals who were bringing friends from West Palm Beach for the first time. It was rather embarrasing

    This is a classic tapas bar. It reminds me of Bazare out on the Beach. Food is very good, but trust your instincts and avoid "recommendations" for house favorites. Going with what we liked worked well. The two recommendations fell flat and we did not eat them. That said, our server took care of it and we were very happy. Service was top notch, and expect food to come quick. It is a great place for couples to get a date night in! A definite recommend.

    Ate from the Miami Spice menu. The codfish fritters and the bread pudding were great but the entree chicken was very bland. No seasoning, no salt and the tomato sauce seemed to just sit on top of the chicken rather than blend the flavors together. I had to pack it with salt and pepper for taste.

    I cannot recommend this restaurant enough! There is a very well crafted tapas menu that mixes old favorites (tortilla espanol, garlic shrimp, gazpacho) with bright new twists (Bulla eggs and ham, tuna tartar, Pintxo-style cumin pork), as well as a short list of larger plates. The roast sucking pig was very creative--yummy, meltingly tender pork "bricks" with crispy tops. I'm all about the wine and I found the Spanish-centric list to be full of well-priced gems, particularly in the Rioja category. Our server, Alejandro, was always there when we needed him and gave us expert advice when we asked about various menu items. Outstanding experience from the start to the finish of a memorable meal.

    We wanted to go eat Spanish food and found this restaurant on the list for Miami Spice. We made reservations and were seated right away. The restaurant was a little noisy but it had good ambiance. The server was extremely nice and very attentive. The food was excellent and the portions were very generous. The Miami Spice menu has a lot of choices and they also have a good variety of wines.

    The waiter explained that the tapas concept means dishes will come out as they are prepared, yeah we get it no problem. Well the first two dishes came out within 5 minutes; great. Then we sit there for about 45 mins with no food. The waiter was VERY slow to refill our drinks. Finally the main course comes. At this point we are over this restaurant and just want to leave. I tell him to cancel our last tapa order which he scoffs at. It took another 30 mins to get the dessert and close the tab. Overall the food was great, the server was very knowledgable, the timing of it all was horrific. Their supposed famous Sangria was just okay. I'll give them another chance just because the food was so good.

    This was an intimate business dinner. We were seated right away. The place was pretty busy fit a Tuesday night but we had no problem with service. The tapas were delicious. We asked the waiter to starts us out with a cheese and meat platter. The selection was great and we tasted some choices that were pretty unique. Dinner of the people we were with had been to Spain and they were also impressed. The croquetas and bacalao were our favorite. The decor was classy. Only complaint but be the seating (no booth just counter height chairs and tables) but that was minor to the food.

    Overly priced food for the quality and service received. Service was extremely slow. One person in our group got their meal after everyone had already finished and table cleared. Staff didn't seem overly concerned even after we inquired numerous times. Upstairs room was extremely loud and they need sound baffles. Good place to get a drink at Happy Hour and perhaps a couple of tapas - other than that way overrated.

    Except for the cod fritters everything else was relatively mediocre. Portions are huge, something that youvwill never find on authentic Spanish cuisine. Menu is in imaginative, and food we ordered (chicken and Spanish omelette) were completely insipid. To boot, even the desert was below average. Other than the typical tapa to join a drink I do not tecommend this restaurant.
