I ate lunch at the bar today, and the food was great as usual :) However, the 3 girls at the hostess desk were a little off putting. When I entered (and it is not a completely silent door), neither of them lifted a head...More

Food was good as was the Sangria. We sat outside and enjoyed the patio atmosphere. Service was good. We had a fish and rice dish and some appetizers and everything was good.

We have eaten at the Columbia Restaurant many times and it never lets us down. The 1905 Salad is outstanding. The environment is enjoyable and the staff is very professional. We will for sure be back.

Ordered the special lamb dinner for easter dinner. Lamb was tough and fatty. The vegtables were cold and under cooked. The rice was cold. I have been to this restaurant many times and have had a great meal. This time it was awful.More

Description
Family-owned and operated for more than 112 years, Columbia has earned acclaim for its old-world charm and award-winning Spanish/Cuban cuisine and wine list. Join us for century-old family recipes like Paella "a la Valenciana," Filet Mignon "Columbia," and fresh seafood specialties. Don't miss Columbia's Original "1905" Salad(R), prepared tableside with our delicious, freshly-made dressing, a 100-year-old family recipe of fresh garlic, oregano, wine vinegar and Spanish extra virgin olive oil. Be sure to sample a fine Spanish wine like Montecillo or Campillo. Relax outdoors in our cafe or courtyard, or inside our Tapas Bar or Mediterranean-style dining rooms filled with hand-painted tiles and family heirlooms. Casual attire is fine, but we don't allow sleeveless shirts on men. We are a sister to the Columbia in Tampa's Ybor City, founded in 1905. Children's menu available. Open 365-days a year, including all holidays.
