Le pregunté a mi mesero, Pablo, si podía pedir cosa fuera del menu de brunch y me dijo que no se podía sin embargo, en la mesa de al lado vi que le servían cosas que no eran parte del menu del brunch. muy mal de parte de mi mesero.

The food and service were GREAT and I was really really happy with all of the social distancing requirements that the restaurants met. Temperature check at the door, hand sanitizer available at the door as well, and the restaurant was very accommodating at seating us somewhere quiet when we said we are especially concerned about social distancing. It helped we were the first ones there for brunch as well. We took paella home with us to eat later and the food here did not disappoint. The manchego plate was a scrumptious combination of flavors!

Perhaps COVID-19 has limited the menu options. Otherwise, the choices aren't that great for a tapas bar.

Bulla is our favorite restaurant in the Gables. Our server was outstanding and so were the other team members. Our out of town guests were impressed. Our drinks and food were on point!

We had to address the waitress several times because she was very forgetful with our drinks and meal. She was nice but perhaps the Resturant was to busy and understaff for her mind.

Unwilling to accommodate COVID-sensitive guests. Tables are placed next to one another with little distance, owner seems to have chosen sales over customer comfort or safety. Told me I couldn’t reserve specific corner tables over the phone (and ignored email inquiries), yet gave said specific corner table to another group of the same size, despite my repeated plea for a corner table for anniversary celebration. Food was okay. Disappointed trip, won’t be visiting again

Had a phenomenal experience at Bulla brunch. My girlfriend and I decided to actively try not to overeat/over order, which we have trouble doing sometimes. We ended up getting the jalapeño civeche, meat and cheese platter, and the garlic shrimps. The jalapeño civeche was OUT OF THIS WORLD delicious. I joked saying we needed to order more of it so we could each have one to ourselves. If we lived in Miami, that fish would be enough reason to come back to Bulla every week.
The meat and cheese platter was great, mostly because of the tomato jam that accompanied it. Don’t get me wrong, the meat and cheese was great, but the star was the jam for us.
My girlfriend loved the garlic shrimp, I thought they were good but a little basic.
For drinks, I got the special gin n tonic. Which was extremely refreshing and tasty. My girlfriend got the white sangria which was much better than I thought it was going to be.
We had a wonderful time and will be back here every time we’re in Miami!

We had reservations made for two. They sat us upstairs on an unstable wobbling high top table in the corner. I requested to be seated at another table. It did not appear as though they made much of an effort to accommodate me, or could they get our table to stop wobbling. I felt like I was on a cruise ship out to sea in bad weather. The service was slow, and our waiter was unattentive, and after waiting close to 30 minutes for a round of drinks and the main course, I had enough And had to yell out my waiter's name to get him to stop ignoring our table so that I could ask for our check and leave. The food was good, nothing spectacular. The environment downstairs did seem very lively and hip. Perhaps, why they just don’t feel the need to provide good service?
I personally will not be going back.

The service was very slow, apparently you can only be help by one server. Even to get a beer took more than 20 minutes.
You see a los if employees just wandering around but not helping, a server that might be busy.

The food was delicious as always. My friend and I ordered from the Miami Spice menu to try more dishes and that was a great idea. Our only issue was that they brought out the second course before the first course which was a big no-no for us. Other than that the visit was good!

Have visited Bulla on many occasions during Covid-19. The food is always great. This time going back was a bit different after opening inside again, the music was loud and there was confusion as to who our server was. The server did admit that there had been a mix up between servers and tables. It is understandable that things are very different during these strange times. All in all the restaurant industry is trying very hard to comply with all the regulations. This restaurant takes your temperature at the front and have distanced the tables. Food always comes out on time but had to wait a bit for our drinks from the bar.
