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.

A fun place with interesting food options, tapas and regular meals and specials, good beer and drinks, can get a bit noisy inside, outside dining is very nice weather permitting. Service is always very good.

The food was okay but service was really disappointing. I think our server was Grace and she seemed to be unhappy to be there, never smiled and provided very slow service. I won't be back after this experience.

Food is hit or miss. Shrimp we got was great. Octopus burned. Drink order turnaround time from the bar is slow. Overall fine but I’d be inclined to spend this amount of money elsewhere.

Never been here but was curious about the paella. Started off with some tapas and the best was the potatoes. Highly recommend them but spicy. The paella was Awesome. Will be back.

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.

As a fan of the Bulla Gastrobar in Miami, I wanted to see if the Atlanta location lived up to my expectations. It did! Food was good, particularly enjoyed the Chef's board of meats and cheeses. The Churassco and Bistro steaks were also outstanding and quite frankly more food than necessary after the appetizer. Carlos our waiter was there when when needed but never intruded on the conversation. The "Proper Gin & tonic" was maybe the best I have had anywhere and I travel to London several times a year! Before this trip to Atlanta I didn't realize that there were locations outside of Miami but will now look for others when traveling.

Food was amazing, just like you would have in Spain. Upstairs seating service extremely slow and took very long to get drinks. Server was very friendly. There had to be a better system for the upstairs. Very happy to hear the owner and head chef are both Spaniards. Amazing wine list and cocktails. Beautiful restaurant inside. I will be coming back for another taste of Spain!

What a wonderful surprise this midtown, authentic Spanish restaurant was for my family and I. The waiter was FANTASTIC, knowledgeable about the food, wine choices and great suggestions for courses. All of the choices were family style and outstanding! One of our party was a vegetarian and she loved it equally as much! Would highly recommend!
