    First the restaurant is understaffed. Just one waitress and I guess the manager had to go to attend customers. Second that caused an understandable delay in the service. Third the quality of two dishes was not as expected. The meat was asked to be medium well and it came burnt. We rejected it and it was brought to us again but again it was not as we ordered it. The location is nice though but it requires more waiters and waitresses and better cooks as well.

    We were seated in a back area near the restrooms. It was definitely not the same vibe as the main seating area. We felt very hidden and it was not very welcoming to see everyone go in and out of the restroom for our entire dinner. My view is also obstructed by a thick wall/door. As far as the food goes was either average or above average. I did think it was a bit overpriced. We paid $80+ for 4 tapas plates and a beer. I would go back, however, I would just go to the bar area and to order a couple of my favorite plates.

    Overall decent experience. We loved all of the food, the most being the Montaditos and Patatas Bravas. It was a slow night, which was a good thing for the lack of crowds and noise, however service was still a little lacking and we felt a little forgotten about by our server. When she was at our table, she was great!

    My party of 2 had reservations at 2:15 on Sunday, July 31. We arrived early and were seated right away. We were given a choice of ordering from the brunch menu or the regular menu. We both ordered from the brunch menu. They were entirely out of coffee and tea due to a delivery issue (but why couldn't they have gone to a grocery for the short term solution?). I started with SMOKED SALMON MONTADITOS w/Cream cheese, truffle honey, topped with capers and red onion. OMG, it was amazing! Very delicious. My sister ordered the GRILLED FLATBREAD w/ Mozzarella, poached egg, caramelized onions, oyster mushrooms, and bacon. It was good - but she said next time, she'd want to order the smoked salmon. We both finished our 1st course and I received the 2nd course, BULLA BENEDICT (Poached eggs, hollandaise, crispy chorizo, asparagus). It was just warm. If I were to get this again, I'd ask for the egg to be poached/cooked a little longer (personal preference) but it was delicious. I ate the entire 2nd course and my sisters 2nd course never arrived. We did not see our server for awhile so we flagged down someone else who let the line person know. We waited longer... the manager came by to ask how everything was, and my sister let him know. She finally received her 2nd course as I sat there. She got the HUEVOS BRAVOS (Two fried eggs, shoestring potatoes, sautéed onions and peppers, brava sauce). The shoestring potatoes were yummy!!! The third course came and it was fantastic! HAZELNUT WAFFLES (Nutella, chocolate shavings, white chocolate Chantilly, toasted almonds). OMG, to die for!!! My sister got CHURROS CON CHOCOLATE w/ Chocolate sauce, dulce de leche. They were good - but mine was better, lol. The manager was kind enough to remove the price of the HUEVOS BRAVOS due to the long delay. In conclusion, the food was fantastic and I would go back - hoping that the timing of the food delivery is better.

    The food was excellent! The server was friendly. However the service was slow. Server was inexperienced and had to be requested to clear the table and clean up mess prior to serving next course. Training for servers needs improvement for sure.

    You can't go wrong going out for a fun ad quality dinner at Bulla. The service was spectacular as Samantha went out of her way for us. My wife and I took a couple here last night and it was their first time. We suggested that everyone pick to small plates and then we can share 8 dishes. All eight were very good and we had a fun time.

    Our party of 4 had to wait ten minutes past our reservation time to be seated and then waited THIRTY minutes to receive our drink order. Part of my meal came out before our appetizers and then they brought four more orders of other tables orders to ours throughout the TWO HOURS it took to complete our meal due to service and timing. One of the worst dining experiences I’ve ever had in Florida and will never return. Our server was a bright light and she did try to make it up by taking an app of our tab, which is why I gave her a few extra points.

    We were so looking forward to a late lunch of tapas and left disappointed! Unfortunately the server was completely overwhelmed and the service was terrible. We were greeted and had waters poured almost immediately, but the only other time the server came to our table was to take our order. We were never asked if we wanted anything else besides water. We asked for bread that never appeared. We ordered almost all the tapas, plus a flatbread and paella. Absolutely everything came out cold after a long wait. We saw the plates sitting under the lights just waiting for someone to pick them up. It’s tapas, bring them out as they are ready, you don’t need to wait for everything to be ready at once! I had to go to the bar to ask for more water and when asked how everything was, I mentioned that everything was tasty, but served cold. He seemed genuinely concerned and apologized saying he would make it right, then we never saw him again. It was so disappointing especially after reading other positive reviews.
