Family-owned and operated for more than 114 years, Columbia has earned acclaim for its old-world charm and award-winning Spanish/Cuban cuisine and wine list. Open 365-days a year, including all holidays. Casual attire is fine, but we don't allow sleeveless shirts on men.

Don't miss Columbia's Original "1905" Salad(R), prepared tableside with our delicious, freshly-made dressing, a 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…
My wife and I stopped in for lunch not knowing anything about the restaurant! Short wait for lunch was well worth the wait! My wife had an eggplant dish and I had a Spanish style pot roast. Both were excellent and large portions. Great value...More
Stopped in St. Augustine on the way home ftom the 500 and went looking for an early dinner. I emphasize early because by the time we left the wait must have been very long. We were seated immediately. The service was attentive and my Redfish...More
We. have enjoyed Columbia's Resturant's several times in Tampa, Clearwater/Saint Pete but this time our server was not up to the level we normally have. He was slow and the salad dressing was missing and ingredient (likely squeezed lemon) so we were a little disappointed....More
Went here tonight, it was never as good as the one in Ybor city but it was still pretty good and a place we brought our visitors. The last 2 times the Paella has been very salty, the Palomilla steak did not have a lot...More
Very popular eatery in the center of this touristy town, but it somehow manages to serve hundreds of people with great tasting food, in a large busy setting. Make sure to order their unique appetizers and main courses.
Dave our server was awesome.,made a great sangria. Table side salad was fabulous. Great job Dave!! Very accommodating in the food selections. Paella was Awesome. Would recommend it to everyone but a reservation is necessary.

Thank you for celebrating Valentine’s Day with us. Our “1905” Salad that you enjoyed was named after the year that our sister restaurant, the Columbia in Tampa’s historic Ybor City, was founded. Today we are Florida’s Oldest Restaurant, still owned and operated by 4th and...More
Was intrigued by the reviews and the location. It is a beautiful restaurant with a reasonable wait time for those without a reservation. Service wasn’t up to standard for a top tier restaurant. Timing of delivery of appetizers was poor, one finished before the second...More
Walking around downtown in the evening looking for a place to eat...had always avoided eating at Columbia, cuz we have wonderful Columbias close to home. BUT, lucky for us we decided to pop in for some tapas. Lovely decor...excellent service (Brian) our mussels with sausage...More
