  • "Food was good, service was excellent The piano player was very good, though they could lower the sound system a bit. It was loud and a bit difficult to talk to your dinner companion."

  • "I must confess, having grown up in Eagle Rock as a kid and living in nearby Pasadena 40 years later I had never been to Columbo's to eat before. Why? I don't know. But I am glad we tried it, even after all these years. Columbo's is still like a mom & pop Italian restaurant. No, it's not fancy and no it's not a dump either. It just reminds me of the old Italian places that used to be around; a little dark, wood paneling, red leather booths, and small tables and chairs. A true neighborhood feel and you see young and old alike. I had Linguini with Clams and while the portion was not huge it was tasty especially the white wine sauce. My wife had Ravioli stuffed with Mushrooms (Excellent!). Prices moderate, nice old school bar and live music!"

  • "Menu special is good for the money. Music is too loud for dinner conversation. Could start later after dinner and turn to jazz club for entertainment. Will go to the night without music to enjoy relaxing dinner."

  • "My wife and I were in town for Valentine's Day (which happened to be her birthday as well). A friend recommended this place since it had great atmosphere and food as well as a live music duo for the date. The entertainment was outstanding. The violinist and the pianist were quite the treat to go with a delicious dinner. The waitstaff was professional, attentive, and they ensured the timing of our meal was perfect. The food was basically what I'd expect if I had an Italian grandmother to visit... just good home-cooked style food. We felt totally at home and special here. Thank you."

  • "If you are looking for more than a late night burger or fast food, this is the place for a nice sit down meal. Got out of a sporting event at Occidental College at 9:30 pm and found this delightful place. Although still crowded we were able to get a table at 10. Delicious pasta choices to go with many chicken and steak dishes offered just what we wanted. A nice full bar along with delicious deserts made for a delightful experience."

  • "very cool, old school, down-to-earth local eatery with great bar scene, diverse crowd, snappy jazz music, cheap food prices, and awesome red vinyl booths. it doesn't get any better, baby."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "I used to come Friday nights back in the day but now I definitely prefer Monday nights. Regular musicians show up to jam with the band and switch off all night. Most of them are actually really good and it's a fun time for everyone. A bit loud but not so much that you have to yell (if your seated towards the back)."

  • "An old style Italian Steakhouse. The brushetta appetizer was quite good. My rib eye steak and baked potatoe were below par."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "Fodd excellent, service lacking. Never received soup/salad course. Manager didn't seem 2 care; said soup/salad was included anyway. Server offered 2 comp deserts."
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "The evening started off with the restaurant choosing not honor our open table reservation time. No apology from a hostess or manager about it upon arrival. Our waitress was nice enough but her "upselling" techniques were too harsh. I am a vegetarian and have been for 25 years. I ordered the primavera pasta and while eating it bit into a meatball. The servers first reaction was, "No there isn't". I literally had to show her my spit out meatball in my napkin. She asked if I wanted something else to which I replied no, thank you. She said the restaurant could offer 50% off of my meal. You serve a vegetarian meatballs and you offer 50% off! I thought that was the tackiest thing a restaurant has ever done. We will not be back."

  • "throwback to the good ol' times where you get easy live pop/jazz music while you dine and/or drink... also the food is quite good and reasonably priced... cozy eating area."
    Dined on 1/12/2014
  • "Overall, the only reason we keep going to this place after 5 years is the occasional Friday night entertainment. This time we had a 8pm reservation that I had made since early that morning, and when we got there we still had to wait over 45 minutes to get seated. Followed by the game of who's our waiter anyways?. For a so called steak house I must admit that they're definitely a step down from a Sizzler. Sad to see all that potential going to waste."

  • "We went because of the open table reviews this restaurant is terrible. The food is awful, the service was so bad the server was rude not remotely interested in our dining experience. There were 4 of us and since I made this reservation I was humiliated. This was an absolute mistake and paying for bad food is never a good thing. The place is old, run down, booths were ripped...it was awful. I am not sure how this won diners choice on open table or has the reviews, maybe friends and family. If you are not a foodie and not really into great fresh food then this will be fine but for all foodies run and don't look back."

  • "I ordered the special--Sirlion Steak Portebello (Medium Rare). The meat was way over cooked and tough. I generally am not that picky and might have ate it anyway but it was too tough. My date order the same thing with the same result. We sent it back and it came back cook right with some visible pink but the meat was still tough as leather. It was smothered in gravy which I gather was to hide the taste of the meat. I have eaten here a couple of times and the food was good. I would get this off the menu or you are going to ruin your reptuation. The hostess sat us down without a menu so when the server came, we couldn't order. It was definitely an off night and I was extremely dissapointed."

  • "appears to be a family owned restaurant. Staff is excellent and helpful; atmosphere is classic old Los Angeles. Food selection and quality was very good. Would recommend for lunch or dinner. We were there for lunch."
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "I reserved through the internet but as soon as I arrived there they sat me in a very claustrophobic room far away from the music. Keep in mind I only wanted to try this place because of the love music. When I asked for another table she said the available one was 2 tables away from mine in the claustrophobic room. The table was so small that me and my boyfriend had a hard time having both of our plates and drinks on there. We wait for like 20 minutes after eating just to get the check. I would not recommend this place at all. Horrible service and the food was not as great as I expected it to be."
    Dined on 12/14/2013
  • "A very comfortable and retro dining experience. Friendly and dependable. The cuisine is mainly Italian w/ many steak and other meat dishes, all well-prepared and tasty. Totally not trendy, and thank God there are still such great places."

  • "place always reminds me of what a restaurant should be. enjoyed the live music. thanks for a great meal."

  • "This Eagle Rock landmark was great. Good food, good service and Jazz to boot. Thouroughly enjoyed ourselves."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "One of the main reasons we like dining at Colombo's is for the live music they provide every night of the week. On this night, there was an outstanding piano player/singer who performed from 5-9pm, and another guy took over at 9:30pm. Many evenings feature bands. Some dishes are very good, others are pretty pedestrian. Drinks tend to be strong. I've had the same waitress on my last two visits and she is excellent - very thoughtful and attentive. Decor is old-time, kitschy Italian dinner club. Definitely an enjoyable spot if you like hearing live music during dinner. Best to make reservations, especially on weekends - it's a small room. There's also a separate room next to the bar for groups or to distance yourself a bit from the music."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "The food was delicious and did not have to wait long. The staff was very quick and very nice. The music of Karen Hernandez, Jimmy Spencer and friends was spot on for the feel of the restaurant. I'm sure I will be going back to Colombo's in the near future."
    Dined on 11/6/2013
  • "takes you back to the leather seat steak house days (although there are no leather sets in the place) with the ambiance and the weekend jazz playing in the small dining area. by the way, the food is quite good.... specialty are the steaks but the linguine with clams is also a winner...."
    Dined on 11/3/2013
  • "My wife and I enjoyed the intimate yet vibrant feel of the restaurant. The steaks were great. We enjoyed the Brazilian-inspired jazz. The restaurant is good not only for a party of two but families and groups as well."
    Dined on 11/2/2013
  • "I am always on the search for a great bolognese sauce and Colombo's does a great job! All their items are delicious; from the Bruschetta appetizer to the House Salad, Sausage & Peppers to the fabulous Bolognese. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who loves Italian in a casual atmosphere in Eagle Rock. It is definitely a neighborhood gem!"
    Dined on 10/27/2013
  • "Great food. Great band. How often do you get both together? They need more parking of course. We'll be back!"
    Dined on 10/24/2013
  • "Every dish was phenomenal. The calamari was hot and crisp and not oily. The bruschetta was the best I’ve ever had. It was served on a softer bread that didn’t cut the roof of your mouth and there was a balsamic touch that brought the concept to a new height. The jazz was a bit too loud to talk over and there were large parties in the center of the dining room that made it even louder. Our server was always keeping an eye on the floor and you could get her attention with a lifted eyebrow it seemed. The pasta dishes were superb."
    Dined on 10/19/2013
  • "We went to listen to the jazz that starts at 9:30 and were told we had to leave our table to make room for someone else. We had to stand in the bar, and then were offered a table in the back room to listen to the music. We spent $140 for dinner and were kicked off our table to make room for another party.. I can't recommend this place to anyone. The music was so loud at dinner you had to shout to your dining partner across the table. The jazz group was disappointing and we ended up going elsewhere. If you like to dine in a noisy crowded loud restaurant, this is a place. Once the bill paid you are no longer important to these people."

  • "I went to this restaurant with my girlfriend. I really had a good time here. The food was great of course and the servers were really nice and kind. The music was perfect to make the smooth and romantic mood of the place. If there is anyone who wants to have a greatt time with someone you love, I would recommend this restaurant for sure! Thanks :)"

  • "Colombo's recalls the yesteryear experience of fine restaurants: naugahyde booths, soft lighting, wholesome Italian/American menu and capable, friendly service. It is an old standby and never disappoints."
