    On a whim I choose Bulla Gastrobar based on Yelp Reviews and was not disappointed. We shared mostly vegetarian dishes (Spinash with Pine Nuts, Tomatoes on Crossiant, Olives, Dates wrapped in Bacon) All were tasty. The Wine list is well appointed and our server Sam gave great explanations on their bouquet, and the one who choose was Supreme. We talked the night away, and by 12 Midnight they had pretty much emptied out. Our Reservations started at 9:30 From start to finish a very nice experiance.

    Love to go and order several tapas and share. The food is fantastic and the sangria is light and refreshing. Great place to go with friends - although it's a bit loud so you may find yourself saying "what?" a lot.

    I enjoy Bulla on most days. The croquettas are always delicious, and the dates wrapped in bacon are phenomenal. If there's one thing I'll say negatively about it it's the service. Whenever I go at night it just seems like the waiters have too many tables to monitor and you can get forgotten. We waited over 30 minutes for the waiter to bring us the dessert menu by which time we'd decided it was too late to eat anything else and just wanted the check. However, the food got there quickly once we ordered and was really good. Highly recommend the croquetts, dates, and patatas bravas.

    On the advice of our waitress, we ordered to restaurant week menu, starting with the calamari in quid ink. It was absolutely superb ... I am still dreaming of it. In fact, it was so incredible I made reservations to come back before restaurant week ends to get it again. We also go the octopus salad, which was perfect, as always. And the suckling pig, a tiny bit dry but still delicious. The drinks were excellent too, particularly the Lemongrass Collins. And we finished off dinner, again with the excellent advice of our waitress, with Torrija (brioche french toast that tasted like a most delicious bread pudding). Waitress: Alejandra was just perfect!!

    This is the best tapas I've had in the US. And the best brunch I've had in a very long time. The food was fantastic; the seasoning was perfect. They used an excellent olive oil that just added to the flavour of the food. And the service is spot-on. Anna, our waitress, was great - very helpful and always smiling.

    For $27, this might be one of the better brunches in the Gables. You have a choice of 3 small plates, or 1 small plate and 1 larger plate. There's also $15 bottomless sangria- yummmm!!! Everything was so delicious. I'm a fan.

Waitress spilled drinks and table behind us spilled their red wine all over my husbands back. Then had the nerve to lie and say it was water! All in all not a stellar evening !

    Food is good but not great; tables too close together killing the intimate feel. I had to ask to be moved because a large group next to us was very loud. My friends snd I could barely hear eachother. Also, they apparently do not have champagne flutes. Drinking a Spanish Cava out of a wine glass us trully unacceptable.

    The food portions are larger than small bites but all are great. The octopus was as well done as I've had anywhere, delicate and sweet. The lamb/? meat balls and sauce were fantastic, and the pork belly was also great. Those three were good for two of us for lunch. I'd like to see it at night.. I imagine it's a lot of fun.

    Food lacked presentation. I think it was mostly the ugly black bowls it came in. The food was delicious but the presentation is huge. Also I ordered the bottomless mimosa option and had my mom who rarely drinks taste it and you could see the waiter getting mad. It was a taste. I saw him tell another waiter look at them they ordered one and are sharing it when that was not the case. Come on now. That basically ruined my experience. From there on the waiter would glare at me to see who was drinking the damn Mimosa.

    If you want a people-watching and tasty food experience eat at Bulla. Do not go if you expect to have a conversation after 8:30 p.m. The Spanish food is fairly good but too expensive for the portion sizes. Both tables to our sides called the manager over to complain about something but of course, we couldn't hear what they were saying much less what WE were saying. The glow of phone screens was predominant. I've been here in the afternoon and that was more enjoyable. We both had headaches and were hoarse after leaving here on a Saturday night.

    Six of us had dinner here the other day. We ordered 6 or 7 tapas and one main course. Everything was excellent. The fried eggs with potato foam, the jamon serrano, manchego, gambas al ajillo, tortilla de papa, everything was delicious. We had churros for dessert, it was a fried dough in the shape of a churro but they did not TASTE like churros at all. Nice try but no. Still, dinner was just great.

    Bulla offers everything a neighborhood Gastropub should offer. Great Tapas, amazing sangria and an atmosphere that's lively and energetic. When we called to say we were running 15 minutes late the hostess said don't worry, take your time we will hold your table. Now that's the type of customer service and attitude that you want from a great restaurant.

    I went for the first time last week with an old friend and ordered five tapas. All were amazing and I can't wait to go back. Not to mention the awesome happy hour. From five to seven everyday all drinks half off. This place is a gem in the gables. Not stuffy or anything, great food, relaxed, romantic vibes. A little pricey but worth every penny. My favorite was the huevos bulla. Will definitely be back soon.
