Loved getting together with friends over small plates, charcuterie and paella! So many yummy options - the Spanish old fashion was popular with the table. Our service was great - very attentive to our needs and kept the food coming and drinks flowing. Had a great time!

Delicious food ! We have been 3 times in the past year and it is always consistently good! Can be kind of pricey but it’s fun to go with friends so you can try a little of everything tapas style! If I could change one thing... it would be to triple the size of the cannelloni. It’s hands down the best thing on the menu but it’s very very small .

We've been here a few times before - this was probably our best visit yet. We ordered tapas and there wasn't a single plate we disliked. You can't go wrong with the tuna tartar and the montaditos, start there if you're not sure what to get.

Food was excellent. Service could be a bit more prompt and attentive, for an establishment like this. Ambience was good but didn't wholly give off that tapas bar kind of feel.

Amazing, high quality food and top notch service that will have us returning very soon! Be mindful that the outdoor seating area was quite busy and noisy from customers at other tables.

Best tapas place I've been to in Charlotte. I prefer it over Barcelona wine bar as this seems more of an authentic Catalan experience ( I've lived there before so it was pretty authentic experience).

Made a reservation for outdoor seating in February. I assumed they would have the temporary walls like other restaurants but we were literally outside in sub 50 degree weather. They did have heaters but just realize if you make a reservation for outside seating you are most certainly sitting outside regardless of the weather or temperature.

Went for V-Day special. Food was great, though a bit delayed. Outdoor heaters could have been turned up more, it was chilly even sitting directly next to one. All in all a great place to eat, a lovely menu to choose from and deserving of a return visit!

Food was amazing wine list is superb and realistically priced. Unfortunately being Valentine’s Day they were slammed and exceptionally busy so that the delay in receiving courses was unreasonably long. However the assistant manager tried his best apologized and we will definitely be back for another occasion

Went for Valentine's. The table was dirty and we had to wait standing up next to the table Floors were dirty and it looked like Toddlers had just ate. The only good thing was the dessert. Felt ripped off. Both dishes came out cold. The brisket dish was a joke and could not even find brisket. Was overloaded with seafood and soupy. Ceviche was touted as Jalapeno based and was sweet with no heat at all. Shrimp were overcooked. We were super disappointed and would choose Miro, Zen and Soul over this any day!

We ended up here for a Valentine's Day Brunch and were very happy with our decision. The menu was varied and easy to understand. We both opted for the Brunch Prix Fixe Menu which was a good deal based on the food and portions. My husband originally thought he may not get enough food but couldn't even finish his 3rd and final course. We both had food to take home. We will definitely be back to try dinner.

This is my third time going to Bulla and as usual it never disappoints, food and service is always great.
I was celebrating my Birthday and the manager come up to congratulate me which it was a very nice gesture.
I always recommend Bulla to everyone for a good Paella and I will definitely go back.

The restaurant and food were fine. It was nothing special but not a poor experience either. For the amount of money we spent we just felt a similar experience could be had somewhere else at a lower price point. We are glad we tried it as my wife has visited Spain multiple times and loves the culture and cuisine. However, for the money and the atmosphere provided it just didn't really hit the spot for us.

Fantastic food! Tapas menus awesome. If dish truly gives each person a bite of that dish if there are 3 of you. So, if there are 6 of you get two orders of each. Spanish wines can make a great pairing.

Incredible service and excellent food! They found out it was my birthday and treated me to a dessert and a gift to take home. They also called in advance because I made a reservation outside and it was calling for rain and wanted to make sure our party felt comfortable dining indoors. I can’t wait to go back!
