This is our favorite restaurant and we have eaten here every summer for the past 6 years for our anniversary. Typically the food is divine with true Spanish and Cuban tastes, but this time everything was just average. My rice was over cooked (a lot)...More

I've been to the Columbia Restaurant multiple times and I always try to stop when I'm back in the area. I just can't resist the pitchers of Sangria, warm Cuban bread and the famous 1905 salad. And best of all, you can walk it all...More

The restaurant is charming and service is good but food is average. They do make a big deal out of their famous salad, but it is just lettuce with tomatoes and julienne cheese and ham. They mix it at the table so it is fresh...More

Family-owned and operated for over 111 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 110-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 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.
