Very good food and the portions are huge. The only problem is the waitress did not tell us the large salad could be shared by two people. Good thing we were sharing in the first place or we would have order way too much.

Attentive service. Food highlights included the 1509 Salad, White Sangria and the Matilyn & Joe dish. The steak and bread pudding were not table favorites.

We took out of state and English friends to The Columbia for lunch. They loved the Spanish and tropical decor. Sandwiches are huge and oh so good! Wait staff is excellent (Carlos was perfect). Save room for dessert--all are so delicious!

Family-owned and operated for over 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 and fresh seafood specialties. Don't miss Columbia's Original "1905" Salad(R), prepared tableside with our delicious, freshly-made dressing, a 110-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 in our courtyard or Mediterranean-style dining rooms, filled with hundreds of hand-painted tiles and Spanish-style fountains. We are a sister to the Columbia in Tampa's Ybor City, founded in 1905. Children's menu available. Casual attire is fine, but we don't allow sleeveless shirts on men. Open 365-days a year, including all holidays. Please visit our website for the most current menu listings.
