Columbia's are always a win. Great food, ambience, good wine list. The service was good but not seasoned; didn't really detract though. You can never really lose at a Columbia and this one continues that tradition.

Went for late lunch/early dinner. I had the salad with turkey. Portion was so large I had trouble finishing. My husband had the pork chops and said it was excellent. We shared the bread pudding for dessert. Portion was large enough for 4 to share. Service was excellent.

This large restaurant served up heaping delicious Paella of multiple varieties all of which had raves from myself and my guests. Wait staff was knowledgeable and very helpful with our selections. I would definitely make this a regular in the future when in the Orlando area. Both outdoor and indoor seating available.

If you are near mouse world, this restaurant is nearby in the urban village of celebration. This is about 9-10 minutes from lake buena vista. The Columbia location is gorgeous with a wonderful ambiance inside. This is so far above most of the restaurants in the Orlando area. They specialize in seafood with a South American flavor. They are also... More

Great food and good service. I wish they had a better beer selection. It wasn't too busy at 5:30pm but by 7pm it was busy.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal and service was attentive but not intrusive. It was a very busy night but we did not have wait for our food to arrive. Would recommend anyone to try the delicious Cuban food for themselves!

Went for a late lunch to this Cuban restaurant in downtown Celebration (which has been in the same family for five generations) with 11 friends who all thoroughly enjoyed their meal. The server was both friendly, competent and well-knowledgeable about the menu, which was quite extensive. We had the delicious black bean soup, their famous 1905 salad, and a wonderful... 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.
