The food was average, nothing spectacular.
The waiting time for dessert to arrive was 30 min (it was a cake) and we asked for more bread that never came to the table

Fun but loud in main dining room. Prompt and cheerful service. Ordered 4 tapas dishes for 2 people, which was plenty. Stuffed shishito peppers and patatas bravas (spicy!) were excellent, ceviche was good, calamari nothing special. Wanted to try the paella, but it takes 45 minutes. Next time.

Food at Bulla is very good. However, the service is very spotty. (Forgetting to input some of our tapas order/having dessert come out before one of the entree items/forgetting some dish modifications requested). Also, prices are high and we left not feeling full - but that's the risk you take with tapas.

My only complaint is that we got almost our entire meal and still hasn't gotten our drinks, which was just disappointing. The bar didn't look super busy, but obviously it was understaffed. The food was great, I would definitely go again.

What a great Birthday surprise , Excellent service, fantastic authentic SPANISH cuisine. More than ample potions on the small plates so go easy until you see what you get. Food is cooked to order so go with the flow and enjoy this great spot. Vegetarians accommodated with ease The 5 star service is almost as good as the food. Enjoy this awesome addition to Midtown Dining scene!

I’ve been here before and I loved it. The night i actually made a reservation was the total opposite. After being seated, we waited 15 minutes and no one came to greet us. Tables around us were being taken care of but no one even asked if we had been helped. I brought a friend with me & it was their first time there and i was so disappointed that their first impression of this restaurant was that no one cares. We left after waiting 20 minutes. The time before was awful too but swept it under the rug & told myself the bar probably isnt a good area to sit bc theyre so busy.

Food choices were interesting, filling and most of all flavorful. Our server was outstanding because she was attentive and knowledgeable about every item on the menu. The shrimp and fish ceviche was amazing as was the cheese and chorizo platter and sizzling shrimp. I particularly loved how adept our server was at suggesting certain pairings of tapas plates. My date and I sat outside near a heat lamp. It was cozy but the bench was not comfortable - the padding was thin and the bench wasn’t level. Beyond the seating, I give Bulla Gastrobar two thumbs up 👍🏽👍🏽and a high five🙌🏽!

By the time we got there they had run out of a lot food items that we wanted to eat which was disappointing. Worst of all though was the service. It was extremely slow. We didn’t even get water until after we got our drinks. At one point one of the menu items was taking a long time to come out so we just cancelled it because we were getting ready to go, 5 mins later it still comes out and we are still charged for it. I’ve been here before and had a much better experience but this time service fell really flat.

There were 5 of us and we got seated right on time on a Friday night. We had the chef's board - all good. We shared the chicken paella (1 guy was allergic to shrimp) and it was very good. I especially liked the jalapeno ceviche. I'm not a big fan of calamari, but it was good - others thought great. Our waiter was attentive and she wrote down the ingredients of the stuffed dates, which were a perfect sweet & savory balance with chorizo and cheese.

Bulla continues to be a consistent winner! Great food quality, excellent cocktails and attentive service. Tuna tartar and corn puree are always excellent, and just the right size to enjoy alone or with friends. It's a definite neighborhood gem for Midtown!

Bulla is a gem of a tapas bar! The atmosphere is great and the service is consistently good; my wife and I live nearby and have been several times and always enjoy the experience. When the weather is warm, their extensive patio area is one of the best in Midtown. Menu favorites include the Stuffed Shishito Peppers, Patatas Bravas, and Albondigas; if you enjoy sangria, their roja is some of the best in the city. The also have a great bar area (kudos to the designer for the TV positioned so bar patrons can enjoy without it detracting from the restaurant vibe). Overall, if you're looking for a great date spot or just want a great meal, give Bulla a try.
