I stopped in for a late lunch on a Saturday. The burger was absolutely amazing. Even though they were in the middle of getting ready for busy dinner, the service did not lack at all. I can also recommend the calamari, which I had at the suggestion of the staff.

As always a wonderful dinner. Excellent service, Kelly is our favorite server. He is always friendly and helpful even when busy. We included him in the complimentary champagne toast ( he had water😊). We sat in the inclosed patio for the first time, very nice. We usually sit near the fireplace. My food pictures do not do justice to the... More

I didn't break my budget and everyone had a wonderful time in a private room with a bar, patio, fireplace and great service. My husband and I eat there often and... More

The menu offerings are plentiful, the plate presentation is fabulous, the food is SO good and the customer service is world class. If you live in Columbia... More

Great experience here. The French dip is an absolute must. They are an exact copy of houston's and other restaurants in that group such as los altos and Rutherford grills - I mean exact copy including decor, menu, etc. I couldn't believe it's not related. While it feels like a stolen restaurant concept, at least they chose a great restaurant... More

Bought a $100 gift card for my son and daughter-in-law. They made 7:15 reservations on 9/10 at Columbia. Arrived early and provided their name. People were being seated who arrived later. When my son inquired, the hostess said she neglected to enter their name in the system. They were seated an hour late. No waiter appeared for 20 minutes. My... More

The food here is very good. I give it an average because the salmon appetizer is always slight over done . The bread pudding and consistently good service has made up repeat customers .

Thank OTR1937
