Friends recommended Columbia. We were not disappointed. Very nice place. The service was acute. Food was exceptional. Wine such as Frog's Leap and Cake Bread were reasonably priced. The bread pudding for desert was delicious. It was a nice evening with friends, we all enjoyed the restaurant. Definitely at do-over!!

This is a mixed review. While most of the food was very good, we had a problem. We had a party of 8. Two of us ordered the chicken special. I ordered it because it was a chicken dish (I don't like seafood and the other person is allergic). As we started to eat our meal, we discovered the dish... More

We are sorry to hear that you and your family had this disappointing experience with us. You chose to celebrate your daughter’s birthday with us, and unfortunately our server was not attentive to your dietary needs.

This was an accidental find! This is a family owned small chain. The food and sangria are some of the best I have ever had! The menu is a combination of family history and deliciousness! Don't miss their special salad; voted one of the best in the country. Amazing black bean soup, Cuban bread and others. Tapas is so good,... More

This just one of the Gonzmart family's Spanish/Cuban cuisine restaurants that consistently provides some of the best food complemented by great service. The menu provides for a well above average variety of meals and beverages for every member of the family. It's a place for lunch, brunch or dinner and can serve large groups when needed. The downtown Celebration location... More

Always good food and service, consistent any of the Columbia restaurants that we visit. The 1905 Salad is delish and a must with any meal!

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.
