We ate at the Columbia Cafe on Friday night. We walked there from the Marriott Waterside so the location was perfect. We didn't have to wait for a table for 6 on Friday night which was nice. The food was good but just not our...More
Appetizers were fantastic especially the bacon wrapped scallops. The steak was delicious along with the vegetables. The desserts were delicious. The flamenco show after dinner was very enjoyable.

My husband and I were attending a concert at Amelia Arena and are I'm familiar with the area a worker at the arena recommended the Columbia Cafe. We ended up eating on the balcony overlooking the canal I think it is. The waiter was amazing...More
The Columbia Cafe is a wonderful and appropriate restaurant to be within the Tampa Bay History Center. The food is "authentic Tampa" and the service is pleasant and timely. Try the 1908 Salad and a Cuban sandwich- yum!
