At least our fifth time here. Three of four had grouper entrees off the menu. Our fourth had ribeye. We all started with a shared 1905 salad. We had the Tempranillo - Cabernet Sauvignon blend. Everything was excellent. One small note, the onion in one of grouper entrees was strong. A vidallia onion would be better. Love this place.

Love the atmosphere of this family owned restaurant. It has a clubby, charming feel to it. It provides comfortable booths and tables for both indoor and outdoor seating. Noise is at a moderate level. We had reservations and were greeted by the hostess and immediately seated. Within a few minutes, Diego, our waiter appeared with our menus and to get... More

Usually this place is on point; however today the sandwiches were not fresh. My wife ordered hers with no cheese. Guess what! Cheese melted all over. Not a big deal, but the remake was a hate sandwich. No condiments. Just meat and bread! Like fine, your gonna send your sandwich back...here is what you get. She has a dairy allergy.... More

Do yourself a favor and get away from the franchises of International Drive and take a short ride to the Columbia. The 1905 salad lives up to the billing by the hundreds of reviewers on this site. The crab cakes were excellent, but the star of the entrees was the chicken and rice. I know it sounds pedestrian, but this... More

First time visitor to Columbia last night and the food was spectacular and delicious. My friend and I each began with a special Pete's Manhattan of their expansive menu. We decided to have an evening of tapas. When all was said and done, we had eight tapas dishes. The ribs were "fall off the bone", the scallops were tender, the... More

This is one of the best restaurants we have visited in Kissimmee, servers were very friendly, quick and efficient. They reviewed the menu, made helpful suggestions and brought drinks and appetizers in a timely manner. The food was served to all three couples at the same time and everything was fresh and hot. Food was delicious and portions were generous... More

We've been to Columbia four or five times now when we come down for vacation in Kissimmee and we have never had a bad experience, the food, drinks,service and the overall atmosphere is fantastic. The 1905 original salad is wonderful as are all the dishes we've tried. Today I had the Cuban sandwich and my wife had the crab cakes... More

We had reservation & sat waiting for another couple. It took the waitstaff about 30 minutes to serve our first glasses of wine in a restaurant that was only about half full. The choice were wide, but fairly expensive. As a price point 2 for two of us with 2 glasses of wine (each), the bill was about $100 +tip.... More

Description
Family-owned and operated for more than 112 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 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.
