Every year, all the women in my family, sisters, daughters, nieces, get together for a fun day out. We start out at Coley's American Bistro because we love the atmosphere and the food. The patio area is nice, weather permitting. Otherwise, we sit in the elevated "stage" by the windows. They have delightful Sangria's and their food choices are delicious.... More

Traveling through Columbia, we were looking for something local new the Mizzou campus. Coley's met that desire. It is a smaller, local place, which was not very busy on an early Sunday evening. We were certainly ahead of the dinner rush. The service was outstanding. The items we ordered were very good. they had a very nice selection of entrees... More

I'm not sure why others called it average. Service was good, food delicious, atmosphere laid back, and prices reasonable. It was our first visit there and we enjoyed it. Especially side dish of man and cheese. Do not leave without trying it. Your won't regret it. Here's a little pros and cons summary for ya: Pros -Location not too bad.... More

I was just going through trip advisor's top restaurants in Columbia, and was shocked to see this as the 15th best restaurant. My title says it all. I have never been to a restaurant that was so average. I want to say that I liked the food or I didn't like it, but it was just ordinary. The service wasn't... More

Coley's is a regular stop for me, and I never leave disappointed. They just updated their menu, so there are new items to try, but many of the favorites have remained. Winelist - my previous favorite wine is no longer by the glass, but I've tried a few new options and they are all quite good. I'm generally displeased by... More

Went for lunch like I have many times. The service is always great and the inside of the restaurant is a little more upscale. The price is not that bad though (generally $8-$12 for an entrée) and the food is great! I had the portabella on ciabatta bread and was very impressed,

Saw favorable reviews so I drove a little out of the way to check out Coley's, and what a treat it was. The atmosphere is very mellow and cozy. Apparently they get busy on the weekends, but Monday had plenty of open seating. I wanted to diversify for my taste buds so I had the Artichoke Cakes (taking the servers... More

My daughter took me here for dinner. We started with the pretzel beer dip appetizer which was awesome. I ordered the pork tacos and she ordered the chicken fettuccine. We both had leftovers. I loved the atmosphere. The section we sit in only had about 8 tables. The prices were pretty good and the meals were fresh and awesome. My... More

Had a very disappointing experience at Coley's. The evening started with the hostess spilling my water and got rather worse from there. Took 10 minutes or so after placing our order for my date and me to get out glasses of wine. Took even longer to get our entrees ... pushing 45 minutes. And her salmon and my pork chop... More
