Great ambiance. When we first walked in I was afraid it would be too loud, but it wasn't. It was energetic, a good vibe. Our service was outstanding. Stephania, our server, was very personable, knew her menu, & made our evening very enjoyable. The food was delicious - some traditional Spanish food items, some their take or twist on Spanish tapas. We will go back!

Lechon tastes like Christmas. Bulla is always a great dinner choice with servers who are friendly and helpful. Casual, but first class all the way.

Kept looking for
My waiter but, he was interested in the beautiful women in another table. Paella was burnt, buñuelos were under cooked with no taste of bacalao. Huevos bulla had no eggs, all potato chips. The rilletes de salmon had no salmon it was all mayonnaise. Sorry but I loved this place and apparently, either they changed way they cooked or changed their chef and it has gone for the worse. Sorry guys, but if you go back to the original Bulla I will go back.

This was our first time at Bulla and it was great! We arrived earlier than our reservation and they seated us immediately. Our server was very efficient, friendly and knowlegeable of the menu. The white sangria was the best I’ve ever had!!! We ordered all tapas and nothing disappointed! Food was fantastic - patatas bravas, costillo, pintxo - all great. For dessert we had the churros and torrija, also excellent. My only complaints are it is loud and tables are situated close together so difficult for quiet conversation or privacy in general. Also, was 86ed the cremosos, the dessert I really wanted. Will definitely be back!

Outstanding tapas evening at Bulla. Best meal of our weekend trip to Miami. Service (Lesley) was exceptional, ambience was buzzing and the food outrageously delicious! Don't miss the short rib tapas. Still talking about them today. No wonder this is the best restaurant in Coconut Grove. We'll definitely be back.

I have been to Bulla several times for Happy Hour and tapas, this is the first time for lunch and it was a total dissapointment all around. The server was unhelpful to say the least, the service was slow and sloppy, the food was terrible, The meat in my friend’s arroz a la cubana was so greasy and fat it was inedible (despite her specifically asking if the meat was a lean cut before ordering ), the bread on the sandwiches she order instead was so hard she could hardly bite into them. I asked Adriana if the octopus salad was good, she said “it’s great”! Well, the octopus was hard and chewy and everything was so over seasoned the tomatoes and cucumbers tasted like a pack of herbs. One hour and fourtyfive minutes for a quick lunch (?) but no one noticed, not Adriana, not the manager, I guess just us.
Bad job Bulla :(

used to be one of my favorite restaurants, but it has been gping downhill lately. catering to a much younger crowd, the food has been reduced in importance. the service has gone downhill, and the night we went, the oven was not working.

Good overall experience. I like the way our server gave me a taste of the wines I was interested in before making my selection. Also, one of the dishes was extremely salty. The Mgr. tasted it and agreed offering my wife a new entree or to simply receive credit. That was the way to do it. My buddy complained that there is no Heineken on the menu but he seemed happy enough with a Stella. His wife thought the gazpacho was average but loved her churrasco. I enjoyed the gambas to start and the Rabo for my entree. Both were nicely done.

Wonderful experience, the staff made my mom’s birthday extra special they even hand wrote a happy birthday card for her :) very nice touch. Even though I went knowing that there were no vegan options available it didn’t matter to make the sacrifice. You just have to get creative with their food options and select the ones with no animals products; for example the kale salad with no goat cheese was to die for and that was my meal along with the pan con tomate and the roasted green peppers!!! Yummy!

Bulla is a great Spanish restaurant in Coral Gables. The food is consistently very good, and authentic Spanish. The half off happy hour can not be beat. They serve small plates and entrees. The wait staff is excellent, and helpful. It is a great place to dine.

The overall experience was horrible. The appetizer didnot arrive all at one time. The main dishes arrive in piece meal. The last two people got their main dishes when everyone else had finished. Others waited the entire meal for ketchup and never arrived.

I was underwhelmed by the food given the price of the entrees. This is ok Spanish food, not high end food. The place is very noise and dark, all their tables are high. I went there with a guest for a business dinner, my guest was uncomfortable with the high chairs and tables, the food was not as good to be that pricey, and there was too much noise to talk with my dinner companion.

This place may be good for a casual but pricey unremarkable Spanish with friends and for younger crowds (25-35). Not good for work dinners.

The only good thing was the service. The person who helped us was awesome.

Our area didn’t have the air conditioning turned on and it was hot and muggy when we were first seated. The happy hour white sangria was amazing and will leave you feeling great. The croquettes were a bit flavorless and the taquenos were ok. The food wasn’t much to rave about, but it’s there and edible if you need something to soak up the alcohol. I’ll be back...for the drinks

The food was excellent, waiter checked on us often and refilled our wine glasses, was seated on time, and I could actually talk to the my wife even though it was a full house. Biggest issue was my main course came out almost 10 minute before my wife's, so I waited for her dish to arrive making mine almost luke warm.
