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.

Normally great, but not tonight! We have been to Columbia several times. It is one of the places that we look forward to visiting when we are in town and go to Disney. The food is consistently good and it did not fail on this visit. Service was terrible and our table was not the best either as we were in a back corner behind the music. The drinks were slow to come; the food was so slow in coming; and then to pay took a long time. Had we not been before, we would not be coming back.

This is my favorite restaurant in the Celebration area. The food is always well prepared and delicious. If you sit outside, however, bring bug spray to chase away the mosquitoes!

Food really good and the price is not bad. Service was not good at all, , the assistant server was around us in the end. Overall the experience was good

It was okay, but not worth what they charge. The hostess was grumpy and not very accommodating. We made a reservation and requested a booth but when we arrived they said it would be 1 hr for our booth. We decided to take a table but my 12 yr old was seated in an uncomfortable seat so we were not happy. 10 minutes later, someone with a booth left so we requested to be moved.

The hostess moved us but seemed to be upset about doing so. They were making comments under their breath. It was unnecessary. If they had told us from the beginning that the wait would only be 10 minutes, we would have just waited. Our waiter was excellent and that what made me give this place two stars. The food had no flavor, the alcoholic cocktails were too sugary and the hostess was in a bad mood and not accommodating. It was way to expensive for what we got. I would not recommend it and I would not go back.

Valentine’s Day lunch and they seated us near the kitchen door and the end of the bar. Think they tried to cram too many people in the main room instead of using other rooms that were empty. Wine was not as advertised on the had an acidy finish that I don’t said it had a low tannin and sweet finish. Waitress was not able to return to our table to refill waters. Food was good. They usually do better than this.
