Family-owned and operated for more than 112 years, Columbia has earned acclaim for its old-world charm and award-winning Spanish/Cuban cuisine.

Casual attire is fine, but we don’t allow sleeveless shirts on men.

Join us for century-old family recipes like Paella "a la Valenciana," Filet Mignon "Columbia," and fresh seafood specialties. Don’t miss Columbia’s Original “1905” Salad®, prepared tableside with our delicious, freshly-made dressing, a 100-year-old family recipe 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 café 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. Open 365-days a year, including all holidays.

First time there, been to the Columbia in St.Armands Circle and the quality and service is once again outstanding. The standards are very high at each of the restaurants and in Celebration it has proved once again to be well worth the visit.

We had a wonderful dinner at the Columbia restaurant. The Sangria was perfect. The 1905 salad is always my favorite. Each one of us had a different entrée and all of them very very good. Lori was a fantastic waitress.

1905 salad and white sangria are outstanding. Tapas are too rich and not best thing on menu. Service was rushed.

A pleasure as usual. This is a very special restaurant for us, as we have nothing like this in the Cleveland area.
Our friends were celebrating their anniversary and picked this restaurant. Funny, we did the same thing 2 years ago . I believe we sat one table different this time.
Highly recommend!
