Great food, great drinks, great service, and great ambience. It was surprisingly busy even on a Tuesday night. Glad we made a reservation and were able to get a table within 15-20 minutes. I’d definitely go there again!

First time visit. Our waiter was SO helpful in guiding us through our meal. We shared 4 small plates for the 2 of us, which was very adequate. All four were very good...especially the tuna tartar.

So much to choose from; party of four pre theater, so we didn't really have a lot of time: meatballs, tuna tartar, ceviche, pork shank, octopus, beef sliders, chicken ?, and 2 pitchers of sangria. Kat, the artist, was amazing.

Wonderful wait staff. Restaurant Manager greeted us upon arrival and circled back during meal. Food was wonderful and everything shareable. Makes for a great date night location. We order the paella for main course and soooooo worth the wait!!

Overall fabulous. All the cooked dishes were excellent; the salads left a bit to be desired (kale was advertised as baby kale, and was not; brussel sprouts were too firm). But the rest of the food was delicious, and we LOVED our waiter (shout out to Lorenzo). The crowd was mixed ages, and it was packed - on a Wednesday night - but the noise level was OK and everyone seemed to be having a great time. I really enjoyed it and it is now one of of our go-to restaurants.

Excellent food and service--even though the restaurant was hopping, we received personalized service. The head dessert chef even came out to let us know that the dessert we had ordered was out, and she'd provide us with another option without cost. Highly recommend.

It was a pleasant evening. The tapas was good. My only complaint was that the ‘pitcher’ of white sangria was completely filled to the brim with ice and I am pretty sure there was no alcohol. The waiter said it was all at the bottom. We actually took a bowl and emptied the ice to get to the sangria and the fruit and both were very minimal if there was indeed any alcohol. Very disappointing. When I said the next time I will order it without ice in the pitcher and only in the glasses, he said then the pitcher would only be about one third full. Would be better to advertise it more correctly.

A great restaurant for a snack, dinner, date, business meeting, Tapas menu as well as some standard items as well as a wild selection of Paella.

we were a business party of 6 and ordered 3-4 appetizers (get the grilled octopus on grits!!), drinks from a fabulous cocktail menu and then each selected 2 tapas items each, to share family style.

The chorizo-stuffed, bacon-wrapped dates was one of the tastiest and wildest menu items I've had. the churrasco, chicken and pork dishes were fabulous, the sprout salad was amazing!

Highly recommend for a great experience at a really cool place in a great part of Atlanta.

The food was delicious, and the service was fantastic! All the staff was incredibly friendly, and the manager apologized for a dish that took a long time to come out and took it off our bill. We hadn't even complained about it, and were enjoying ourselves so much that we barely noticed it was taking a while.

Try the Chorizo Stuffed Dates - they are fantastic!

I went to Bulla to celebrate my birthday and everything was great! They were so accommodating with changing us to a bigger table when I found out more people were coming! The food was amazing! All the tapas and drinks we got were fantastic! The waitress even brought a free round of shots and a free dessert to the table for my birthday! Definitely will come back!

Have recently become a big fan of Bulla. The food is fantastic and authentic. Reminds me of the year I spent studying in Madrid. The service has been top notch every visit regardless of where I sit: bar, outdoors, in the restaurant proper. Bulla is a bit pricey but worth the treat or a special event. Highly recommend.

Our server was Diamond. She was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu, it was our first time visit for brunch. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The smoked salmon and watermelon salad were great as was the Bulla burger. And one of the best Bloody Mary’s that I’ve had.

Absolutely great Moscow Mules. Very good small plates. A lovely waitress. The only annoying part was the hostess who made believe she couldn’t find our reservation. But we did get a requested table outside and it was lovely.

No recommendation because there are so many other choices. This review only allows a food review. The drink menu is vitally important as well. The bar was not stocked well and appears to cater to a limited and average taste. I like a restaurant with a great bar, other tapas restaurants can and do provide that.

Overall, a great experience! Andre ensured we were taken care of from start to finish, even when the hostess sat us at a high-top when I’d requested something low for my short legs. The drinks, the food, the service... all excellent! My friend and I shared 7-8 small plates, and while I had a Sangria Roja, she had a glass of red wine. All were so delicious.

Bulla was great as per usual! Been coming back just to sit at the bar, since my first time at Bulla Atlanta a little over a year ago. When you you come in, ask for Cynthia! She’s a total gem — always super attentive, professional, kind, and notices every little detail to ensure that your experience as a customer is stellar. Will definitely keep coming back because of this!

This was our first visit to Bulla Gastrobar. We were seated next to two other occupied tables in a corner when there were empty tables all over the restaurant. I'm sure this made it easier for the server, but they should really spread the customers out when it isn't busy so you don't feel you're dining on top of strangers. The food was great, but appetizer portions are very small. The bathroom is a hike up four flights of stairs - so be sure to take the elevator!

First time there and decided to try since we enjoy Spanish food after spending a month in Spain. Everything was great - tapas and large plates - very authentic. Shared some things and enjoyed individual dishes. Like that they change dishes based on season or what is available. Really enjoyed the open-air dining on the second floor. Open windows seemed to cut down on the noise level which was great. Our server, Ashley was super - prompt, provided great explanation, and was engaging. Manager stopped by and was also great.

If there was a minor complaint it would be the wine list and drinks. Wife and myself had a martini - a little small and over-priced. Wine list especially Spanish wines could be better represented and with cheaper selections. Website list was more extensive and more reasonably priced, but actual list did not reflect it.

We would go back again? Yes, a definite YES!!!

Andre provided very good service.

One of my guest was surprised to see the up charge for Tito’s vodka in Moscow Mule. She didn’t mind paying it, but the server should have mentioned it at the time she ordered.

The hostess was very pleasant and happy to move us from an outside table when we told her it was too hot.

I always enjoy the food. This is my go to place when friends are in town.

All tapas tonight - grilled octopus on a roasted corn base, crispy calamari, brisket open faced sliders and patatas bravos. Good meal - will go back for the paella!
