Bulla is a great place to go to have delicious tapas and good wine. Our waiter was very nice and efficient. The stuffed dates were so good and meatballs terrific.

LOUD!! I mean L O U D, LOUD!! Move away from the giant bar area at front and try for rear where sound diminishes some. Or... try upstairs, where party rooms are located as well as a nice eating terrace. Upstairs convenient as bathrooms are up there. For those with mobility concerns, there is an elevator.
In past, when ordering a slew of tapas, quickly learned to specifically demand they be served in the order given. If you don't do this, tapas come out in random order fitting the kitchen workload. I solve this now by orderig one tapa dish and a main course, reserving space for dessert, of course!

Bulla's food and service continues to be one of the best. The one big complaint (besides the ac that is always very cold and the seats of the 1st floor that are not appropriate for older/disabled people) is the noise level.
Too much Bulla!

Great spot for get together. You have to make reservations especially on a Friday night otherwise they’ll be a wait for a table , but we were lucky enough to have made reservations and got seated very quickly. I had never had tapas before so I explored different options and overall all of them were very flavorful. The waiter was superb always friendly and super attentive and never bothered when we ask to take group pics .

Bulla was great. We had a reservation and were seated quickly. It took a bit for our server to notice no one had come by to take our order. As soon as he came we placed our order for several tapas. They were all delicious. Eggs, bread, fritters, meatballs. All so good. Our server was Eric and he was very nice. Great ambiance and prices are reasonable. Don’t order too many of the tapas for two people, the portions are very generous.

Bulla is one of our "go-to" spots when friends and family come from out of town; on this visit we were very disappointed. We had our first course even before the drinks arrived, despite ordering the cocktails before the food. All of the small plates we ordered were undercooked. The service and quality of food were a disappointment and not on par with what I have grown to expect from Bulla.

The house-made truffle potato chips with egg, are a must, along with the Octopus! It is not on the menu; but if you ask them to make the Octopus with chorizo and potatoes they will do it for you and it is amazing! They also have an Octopus salad, which is also very good.

Fun and a great brunch. We were seated on second floor which was very loud but lively. Enjoyed sitting on lower floor more. Service was excellent... our waiter. Louis did a great job when there was a quick turnaround with the first and second course, allowing us time to enjoy our first course without feeling rushed! Brunch was fantastic.

the food was great but the service wasn’t. it took forever for us to get our mimosa refills, multiple times. we spoke with a manager who took care of us but it sucks it got to that point. our server was great, and we understand it was at no fault of his that the bar was backed up making the drinks.

i want to come back and do this again but maybe we can get a bottle and get oj on ice next time? that way we can have a boozy brunch with the awesome food and ambiance bulla has to offer

Usually one of my favorite brunch spots, this last visit wasn’t as good as usual though. The server was great but the food took nearly 30 minutes to come out and it was a bit cold when it finally arrived. The portions also seemed pretty small. Won’t keep us from coming back though. Hopefully it was just a bad day, maybe short staffed. Will return.

Had lunch at Bulla. Whether choosing from the prix fixe lunch menu or the full menu, there are interesting choices and many opportunities to taste something new to share. I had the spinach salad and the cumin chicken with avocado toast which is much more amazing than it sounds. Add to that some Albariño, a kind wait staff and the huge doors open to a beautiful day in Miami: perfect.

The experience was wonderful overall. We had a reservation but got there earlier, and were seated immediately. The tables are in the form of high tops, so sitting on the non-booth side was a bit uncomfortable given that the tables are pretty small. Other than that, our server, Nicole, was very attentive and quick and was very nice to my mom since it was her birthday. The food was delicious and we’re Cuban with Spanish roots, so we know how these dishes are supposed to taste like! The plates are affordable and we were quite full at the end of our brunch. The only other concern was the noise level, but I guess that’s to be expected during brunch in Miami on a Sunday :)

Brunch was delicious- the five of us had different dishes and each one was delectable. Our only complaint was the noise level because with lots of conversation around us the high volume of the music was too much and made chatting a challenge.

The tapas and appetizers were great, the paella was very basic and super over priced. We should of just ordered more tapas. The services is very slow, but the server was kind. The food comes out way to slow. The dessert was tiny, another overpriced item that took to long to come out. I asked for bread, but never got it. Also the tables are way to close, so there is no space for privacy. You can overhear everyones conversations. They should add just a more space so it doesn't feel like a cafeteria. The design is great. Overall I felt like i did not get a romantic dinner and my moneys worth. my partner and I both agreed that we wouldn't go back and if we did reccomend it we would tell them to just order tapas.
