Kelsey provided overall excellent customer service (steered me a bit wrong on one of my dishes).The drinks were amazing as was my dessert (coconut flan & mango sorbet). The appetizer was also quite good (smoked salmon...). I was disappointed in the chicken and waffle dish. The waffle was overcooked & tough and while I was told the chicken would be a breast, it was not (thigh).

It was good, however pre-pandemic I believe was better. The selection was less and food may have slipped a little.

Made reservations for the patio, but there weren't any tables available. Manager/host was apologetic, and since I'm vaccinated, I was OK sitting in bar area inside. Wish the salads on the lunch deal were all included in option 1 versus spread across the two categories. Service is always efficient.

We had a good outdoor experience at Bulla, but it was very hard to talk because most of the outdoor space was taken by a very loud baby shower with a DJ. The restaurant should have given this event the entire outdoor space.

A favorite place when I want to take my son for a fantastic meal with flawless service. When he ordered a very special whiskey for me they did all the right things.

We dined outside @4:30 pm. None of the tables and seats had been wiped off, there was ALOT of pollen.
We waited for @ 15 minutes for our waiter to take our drink order. He apologized and said he had to deal with an issue. The shrimp and skewers were good. Montaditoes are good but not much food for the price.
Drinks are very pricey.

The 2 for $15 deal at bulla blows me away everytime. I got the salmon carpaccio and the beet salad and the coconut flan for dessert. 10/10 service as well! He cleared everything and got us new silverware everytime w out asking. Even offered to box my food for me when I asked for a box. Will be back.

Great restaurant with excellent food specially if you like the Spanish food.
The paella is always a nice choice, however the variety of tapas are also very good. Good location just around the corner from the shopping mall at a walk distance.

We’ve gone to Bulla for brunch twice now. We found the Brunch menu to be very complete and reasonably priced.
The three course deal is quite a bit of food so be hungry if you order that!

A great place for out door eating. We had several tapas and all of them have been good; while the grilled octopus was outstanding. we trusted our server to and followed his recommendations and it worked very well for us. It will be a little cheaper if you just go with an appetizer and an entree, but we liked the variety and will go again.

Great for a date night outside on the patio. The food is delicious, some what rich, but that's why it's tapas and you share :)

The booths are tall and comfortable with a foot rest which was great. The cocktails were tasty. The food was underwhelming, not bad in any way just not very remarkable. Could have used more seasoning.

Bulla made us feel very uncomfortable because of the fact that we forgot to include our 4 year old son to the reservation. We made it for 5 adults, and did not include our 4 year old. Most places (even harder to get in to restaurants) do not count children under 6 years. They acted like we just committed a capital crime. Other places would’ve at least try to accommodate even if we had to wait a little longer but Bulla was totally not having it. It was my wife’s bday dinner and she got so upset that we left. The table that they had set up for us (for the party of 5 reservation) was barely big enough for 5, The place was not even packed nor were there other parties waiting to be seated. There was plenty of empty tables all over the place with enough room for 5 adults and a 4 year old kid. In Orlando FL where I come from, they would’ve accommodated with no issues because we understand that in life sometimes plans do change. I was going to try Bulla for the first time because my wife had visited before but because of the unprofessional and discourteous treatment we got , Bulla lost 2 customers. I would not eat there even if it’s free.
