Great service, the “1905 Salad” and Cuban sandwich combo is great. The best part of the meal was the dessert! The bread pudding was the best I have had in my life, really delicious.

Stopped in for lunch with the family. Lovely restaurant with great decor, and excellent service. Had the mahi sandwich which was good. I wish I had tried one of their more traditional menu items. Next time.

First of all, we had reservations, but were seated about 45 minutes after our reservation time. The server was slow in taking our order and then slow in delivering it, Food was average, not real exciting.More

That is not at all our policy. In fact, servers are not allowed to comment at all about tips. Please speak with a manager if this happens again.

Family-owned and operated for more than 113 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 and fresh seafood specialties. Don't miss Columbia's Original "1905" Salad(R), prepared tableside with our delicious, freshly-made dressing, a 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 in our courtyard or Mediterranean-style dining rooms, filled with hundreds of hand-painted tiles and Spanish-style fountains. We are a sister to the Columbia in Tampa's Ybor City, founded in 1905. Children's menu available. Casual attire is fine, but we don't allow sleeveless shirts on men. Open 365-days a year, including all holidays. Please visit our website for the most current menu listings.
