Had a reservation for 6 people for 5pm. Our table was ready & we ordered drinks. We then put in our food order & it all went downhill from there. My boyfriend & I ordered the burrata & tomato salad which never came. When I...told our waitress, I told her to just take it off the bill. Instead, they put it in a to go container… very unappetizing looking. They then brought the wrong dish to my boyfriend & my aunt’s risotto was cold. The overall restaurant had a chaotic feel to it with no one running the show. I watched waitstaff eating openly in the back of the restaurant. I can’t say that I would return. The food was mediocre at best.More

My wife and I shared a bottle of Prosecco, a Caprese salad and the Chicken Toscano with green beans. All were great. Ate out on the patio and had a great time. Karen was our server and was great.

While the food was fairly decent, but not great, my husband and I were not pleased with the unfriendly attitude of the waitress and the upcharge on our invoice for a vegetable we did not receive. My husband asked to replace the potatoes with a...larger vegetable portion. The invoice had an "upcharge" for this request even though the potatoes were on the dish and there were no additional vegetables. The waitress acknowledged the mistake; we said that it was ok, but then the upcharge. When we questioned this, the waitress would not remove the charge and insisted there were additional vegetables on his plate. We will not be going back!More

basic rules 1 welcome 2 order drinks 3 give menu 4 order food 5 print order 6 check drinks and clear empty glasses 7 serve appetizers 8 clear appetizers 9 checks drinks and clear empty glasses 10 serve main course 11 clear main course and...so on When you think you know it better : go back to school manager. When you do not work according to this system your staff will make mistakes like with out group : wrong drinks, out of some drinks ( no cold Heineken) tables full with empty glasses, serving main course while your guest still eat the appetizers, forgets 2 main courses and then how stad staking more than half an hour to serve the 2 missing dishes. And the biggest mistake : mister manager was convinced the staff was not to blame and insisted that we had to pay the full tip : this was the law ? food overall was allright except baked salmon : covered in sugar ?More

We really enjoy sitting at the bar, enjoying a bowl of clam chowder & a cold beer. Great people watching as it is an open air bar.

We don't eat in Hyannis very often, but when we go to the Cape Cod Melody Tent, we dine at Columbos on Main Street. I'm tired of paying $100+ for dinner, and every menu I looked at in Hyannis seems to be overpriced for the...summer tourists. I found that Columbo's still maintained their year-round prices and I could enjoy a fabulous meal with all the entrees for under $30 each. Last time we went I had homemade Black Squid Ink pasta with clams. My associate had an amazing bolognese with shredded chunks of short rib- not ground beef. All the other entrees at our party were just as good. The staff is well trained and very friendly, yet professional. Highly recommended.More

We have never had anything but wonderful food and service at this restaurant. We come back time and time again with our family. Last night, we started with the mussels and the marguarita pizza for apps. We also wanted to try some of the salads...that sounded so good, but we saved room for our entrees.we chose the Stemmari pinot noir for wine and were very happy with that choice! For dinner, we had the chicken parmigiana, shrimp fra diavolo, red clam sauce and white clam sauce. All of us were very happy with our choices. For dessert, we had the lemon cake and a cannoli as well as coffee and espresso martinis. We can’t say enough about the food and the service. Exceptional!More

This place was ok. The food was good but nothing to write home about. The atmosphere was nice but our waitress was a little “off”. She wasn’t super friendly and misheard what I said twice and made me question if I was speaking clearly. She...brought me the wrong drink but corrected it and didn’t charge us. Not a terrible experience but I wouldn’t go back or recommend.More

For years we have loved Colombo's. It was my favorite restaurant so we visited a few times a month. The food and service have always been fantastic. Since Covid, however, things have changed. I understand that staffing problems have been an issue everywhere... so I...try to overlook as much as I can. My most recent visit was the straw that broke the camel's back. Since Covid, we will only do take out. 3 times in the past few months I have returned home only to discover that my chicken has been undercooked. Knowing the daunting issues that Colombo's is facing, I have said nothing. This last time (June 22, 2022) I discovered that my meal was RAW when I got home! I called to let the manager know that there is a problem. When I called and asked for the manager I was rudely told, "no! .... he was too busy." I told her that my meal was raw and I needed to speak to him. She said something (that I could not understand) and then hung up!!!! This behavior is unacceptable. I am so sad to be losing one of my favorite restaurants. I hate leaving public reviews like this but this is apparently the only way I can let them know. I used to be able to send them a "private review" but they are no longer a part of the MileagePlus Dining program and yelp does not have that option. I'm just so disappointed!!!!More

We got the large Mediterranean pizza and not only was the pizza HUGE, the pizza itself was outstanding. I ate more than I should have because it was so good. They also have the most amazing pastries. I wish I could've tried one as they...looked so delicious but was too full. Next time I come back to Hyannis, I will definitely treat myself to one!More

My friends and I showed up for the Free Women's Wine Wednesday as advertised in the bar. I had just been to Columbo's that weekend for a delicious dinner and thought this looked like fun. Wrong! The hostess was rude, said she didn't know about...it or how it worked (the sign was still up in the bar). She said we needed a reservation or maybe to register. How do we do that? She didn't know. In fact, she knew nothing. She was the same hostess we had on the weekend. There were four of us, and our husbands were meeting us there later for dinner so that would have been 6 for dinner. She could seat us for dinner but not the Wine Wednesday. She went for her GM and returned with the same answer. The GM never came to see us. This was false advertising and rude business practice. We left and took out business elsewhere that night. Unfortunately, that left a bad feeling with many in our party who have said they would not return to Columbo's. It would not have taken much to be polite or even accommodating or even explain the process - since it was NEVER clear.More

New Year’s Eve 2021 - we just got home after waiting 2 hours because they couldn’t process credit cards. No apologies and refused to let us leave to get cash to pay! Waitress snubbed me, a Caucasian handicapped Senior because I left only a 15%...tip!!! Never even said “Thank You “. Bar manager followed me out into parking lot. He stated he and the owner have NO USE for any reviews I said I would leave on TripAdvisor. They don’t need TripAdvisor!!More

I dined at Colombo's on a recent trip to the Cape. I elected to try the Frutti di Mare for dinner. It was excellent! All of the seafood in it was fresh as can be and the capellini was cooked perfect. After dinner, I indulged...in the chocolate chip cannoli and it was one of the best that I've had. The service was great during my visit. Price was mid-range and average of what to expect on the Cape. Parking was also very easy as there is a big lot attached. I highly recommend Colombo's and would visit again.More
