Special occasion locationCelebrated our 18th wedding anniversary at Cola's instead of Garibaldi's this year. Our first visit to Cola's . Very high marks.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner with ParentsThis was our first time going to Cola's. My wife and I wanted to take our parents out for dinner and Cola's is where we ended up at. We loved the seat at the window feeling the breeze from outside. The food was excellent and the service spectacular. I have been spreading the word about this hidden gym since Saturday. Cola's is one of Columbia top spots.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great evening at Cola'sWhether you are meeting a group of friends or out on date night, Cola's is a great place to enjoy the evening. Full of energy, great food and great drinks, you can't go wrong.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMSeated promptly, server relativelySeated promptly, server relatively new but had menu down pat.

Very friendly staff and we were seated immediately.
We shared the hummus for an appetizer and it was delish! My daughter ordered the Tilapia and I ordered the Filet. Both were so very good and the service was A+. Our waitress was adorable and very attentive.
Great restaurant in Columbia!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday celebrationMy husband and I chose Colas to celebrate my birthday. It was our first visit. It was a week night (Tuesday) and we had a reservation, so it was not crowded and we were seated immediately. Again, since it wasn't crowded, our food came out fast. The food was very good; the only complaint was that my husband ordered something right off the menu (crispy flounder) ... not a nightly special ... and they didn't have it. One of the reasons I chose Colas over another restaurant for that particular meal was so my husband could order the crispy flounder (one of his favorite dishes). We got to be seated near the open door at the street, and there was a great breeze flowing through.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome AnniversaryWe celebrated our anniversary at Cola's & it was our first time dining there.

When we first arrived we were in a room with other diners and it was a little loud. The tile floor and high ceilings are not good for acoustics. However, the other diners left and we had the room to ourselves which was very nice. The food was excellent, especially the bread pudding for dessert.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA delightful find. I was aloneA delightful find. I was alone so initially was to be seated at a high top in the bar area but requested a regular table and was accommodated. I had the "Bloody Mary" fried oysters for an appetizer but was disappointed. I expected a nice spicy zing, tasty yet bland, ask for Tabasco. The shrimp succotash was wonderful, fresh and a signature dish. The cola salad was fresh and tasty as well. I do recommend and would visit again.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMCola's - great dining in Columbia!We ate at Cola's prior to attending a play at the Koger Center on Saturday night. We had a great meal - my husband had Crispy Flounder and I had Shrimp Succatash. I also had the corn/oyster stew - it was great and I could tell the corn had just been cut off the cob...very fresh. My husband's salad was eccletic...had butternut squash on it.
Cola's has food that is a little different than many other restaurants - while there is no official outdoor area to sit, they have 2 massive garage doors that they open weather permitting and it is like sitting outside yet you are protected from the elements. Only complaint is that it can be very loud but highly reccommend!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful dining experience.Wonderful dining experience. We had a table for eight and found the service was perfect even for a larger group. Cocktail were great especially the lemon drop and the Cola Cosmo.
