We live in Georgia but make time for stop at a Columbia restaurant whenever we are traveling nearby. We have been going to this restaurant for more than 25 years and it never disappoints. We love the salad that they toss in front of you at the table which includes the perfect combination of flavor and ingredients. I personally like... More

Love coming to the Columbia restaurants whenever I am near one. As far as the food and service, they are on spot. Excellent. The salad is out of this world. The bean soup was very good. Cuban sandwich, while not the best I have had is very, very good. Out of the locations that Columbia has, this is my least... More

We visited this restaurant on the strength of its Trip Advisor review. The location in the centre of Celebration is tranquil by the lake with ample street parking which was free. The restaurant is beautifully presented with lots of tiled surfaces and looks very up market. The staff are immaculate and very friendly. The menu is extensive with a heavy... More

We ordered 5 different dishes (2 chicken, 2 beef and 1 fish) each one was wonderful! Large portions, perfectly seasoned. The1905 house specialty salad is a meal in itself. Save room for dessert - the flan is excellent.

Like its sister in Tampa this restaurant goes old world Spain with dishes touched by the Andalusian sun. Meats, Poultry and Seafood all get this treatment. Delights for the taste. Music last night was a flautist accompanying a sound track. Try to make room for dessert but don't be ashamed if you can't. Even the side salad was huge. I... More

This is my wife's favorite restaurant in Florida and even when we don't have one close to home in Fort Lauderdale, we try to visit at least twice a year. This was our first time at this location and it was as great as every time. We love their menu and this time we shared artichokes and fritters for starters... More

We enjoyed our dinner and the ambiance. We were able to talk without shouting and enjoy each other's company. The seating was comfortable. The children enjoyed macaroni & cheese, chicken fingers and fries. The adults had various entrees from chicken to shrimp. I had stuffed shrimp, good rice, and a baby asparagus medley. It was very good. The plantanos maduras... More

Description
Family-owned and operated for more than 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 "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 Torres, 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.
