Birthday dinner for my mother. Our server Alexi was so sweet and attentive. Our food came out tapas style everything was delicious. We ordered a paella for our main course to share in the beginning and it came out perfect. We truly enjoyed ourselves. Thanks so much !

There was nothing we enjoyed about this restaurant. The ambiance was bland and felt cheap, the food was lacking flavor and the service was spotty.

Really great food! Every dish we got we loved. Croquettes so creamy n flavorful, Mediterranean salad great to share and full of fresh veggies and bright dressing, tomato bread is the best in Charlotte, I could go on! Besides the ambiance, much better dinner out than barcelona wine bar, in my opinion. And service was excellent to match!

So we ventured out for brunch this morning and decided to try a place we have not been before that is an oasis in the middle of South Park! We started out with a Mamosa and a sangria and Croquetas De Jamon with Serrano ham croquettes and fig jelly, and Smoked Salmon Montaditos with cream cheese and a truffle honey. Then the second course was Chicken and Waffles with a rosemary maple syrup, and Braised Pork Hash which was braised shredded pork, a poached egg and breakfast potatoes. The chicken was tender, real depth of flavor; a little bit of sweet, a little bit of tangy, and every single bite of the pork hash was a new adventure. Lastly, we finished off the meal with Hazelnut Waffles with Nutella, chocolate shavings, white chocolate chantilly, and toasted almond, and Blueberry and Ricotta pancakes which had a blueberry compote and lemon gel. The whole meal was a culinary rock concert with each course being a note that lead you into the next!

We had a wonderful date night. Our service was impeccable and the food was literally so yummy! We had the paella mixta and various tapas that were just amazing. The drinks were yummy too, especially the sangria Blanca and the lavender margarita. We will definitely be back and have already spread the word to our friends!

Service was bad! Had to ask for the waiter after about 10-15mins after being seated just to order a drink. We ordered one small plate to start and 2 full entrees. The entrees took forever although they were not busy at all. Service was poor all the way around. Will not go back. Burger was not good.

This is by far and away our favorite restaurant in Charlotte. Excellent food, a variety of items so you never need to have the same thing twice. Drinks are great. Service is outstanding from the moment you walk in the door. Willie, our waiter, we've had a few times is beyond compare in attentiveness and his ability to pace the meal to our desires. Kudos!!

My husband and I knew exactly where we wanted to dine for an early New Year’s Eve Dinner@BULLA Gastrobar! Our dining experiences @ BULLA are always ‘on point!!!’ But the manager, Krista R, and her staff really rolled The Celebration Rug out for us as well as the other patrons with#New Year 2022 Black, Gold, Silver Party Favors of hats, masks, beads, and balloons along with special menu as well as regular menu!
We deliciously dined on garlic shrimp, lamb meatballs, ham croquettes with fig jam, and of course the BullaBurger!!
What A Great Way To Bring In The New Year 2022 & To Look Forward To Many Returns To #bullagastrobar2022🥂😋

I really liked the experience. Having been to Spain before, I can tell this is a fair example of what Spanish food is like, although I would suggest that more Spanish be included in the menu.
