Description: Family-owned and operated for more than 114 years, Columbia has earned acclaim for its old-world charm and award-winning Spanish/Cuban cuisine. Open 365-days a year, including all holidays. Casual attire is fine, but we don't allow sleeveless shirts on men. Live music Friday & Saturday from 9 p.m. to 11:30 p.m. in our Tapas Bar. Join us for century-old family recipes like Paella "a la Valenciana," Red Snapper "Alicante" and fresh seafood specialties. Don't miss Columbia's Original "1905" Salad(R), prepared tableside with our delicious, freshly-made dressing made 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 outdoors in our cafe or courtyard, or inside our Tapas Bar or Mediterranean-style dining rooms filled with hand-painted tiles and family heirlooms. We are a sister to the Columbia in Tampa's Ybor City, founded in 1905. Children's menu available.

Walked around celebration and came across this sister Resturant of one we visited in Sarasota
Decided on 4 tapas as late and cold, nice food and good service, receptionist at front of house could have a warmer welcome but otherwise well worth a visit

We ate lunch here as part of a time share promo. We had eaten at the site in Ybor City so exceptions were high. We were offered the "limited" menu which I guess made sense. Had the roast pork with rice and plantains. The meal was tasty and the portion adequate. Will go again on my dime!

We always stop at the Columbia when visiting Orlando. A beautiful place to sit outside and have lunch. We started with a pitcher of mojitos which never disappoints. It’s made at the table. Our servers were excellent. Warm fresh bread to start. We split the Cuban sandwich and 1905 salad. It’s not the best Cuban - it’s not freshly roasted pork. Seems like a processed pork. The 1905 salad is one of their specialities. It tastes good but is loaded with dressing and iceberg lettuce. It’s another item made at your table. If you are health conscious, the hearts of palm salad looked healthier. But the atmosphere is outstanding. Sitting outside on a beautiful day across from the lake, watching the world go by. Very relaxing. We will continue to stop each visit to Orlando.

My husband and I went to this restaurant many times. Look for Tatiana or Newton. They are the best servers working there. The food is good and the good news is if you want something different they are open to switch ingredients for you. My husband and I are on diet so we requested to switch some ingredients and they did. Try not to seat in the back of the restaurant because you might seat and the servers will ignore you. We were there today for a lunch and no one came to give us water....Try to get a table right next the front door.

Very disappointing
Definitely not worth the price for the experience. Service was average (notice not outstanding). All dishes were mediocre at best, lack flavor, yuca was overcooked. The food isn't authentic at all. We will not be returning.
