Good place for dining outside. Service was great, and food was good. Waited to be seated though for almost 30 min, and we had reservation.
Great service. The Palomilla was a little too salty and the bean soup was dry. The rest was delicious.
What a nice surprise! Food was good and our waiter Jorge was absolutely fantastic! Thanks for the experience!
Never disappointed when we eat here. Servers are always welcoming and knowledgeable. The food and drinks we too notch and the service overall is amazing.
The boliche was delicious. The salad was great. Flan was delicious
Our favorite restaurant. We love the 1905 salad! Great food and great views on the water.
Service was a bit slow. Parking, even with valet, is a problem
Great service and the food was perfect. Can’t resist the 1905 salad and the desserts were amazing.
Food as always, was excellent. Wait staff was very attentive and polite. We frequent this location and always have a great experience.
I had the Half and Half combo for lunch. Half of a Cuban Sandwich and half order
of Columbia’s Original “1905” Salad. My wife also had the Half and Half combo but
she had a cup of Gazpacho Andalucia soup and half order of Columbia’s Original “1905” Salad. We shared the White Chocolate Bread Pudding for dessert. The service and food were excellent. We sat outside with a beautiful view of the Intercoastal Waterway.
It was our very first time going was recommended. However the food was hard, disgusting and nothing special. Both my husband and I became sick to her stomach‘s afterwards. I’m sorry but we will not be going back.
The food was absolutely delicious and the service was excellent. We couldn't eat there every week but most definitely for a special occasion.
Great food and ambience
Awesome food and service. Very COVID-19 conscious. A pleasure to eat at the Columbia at Sand Key.
We love the food and restaurant! Excellent choices on the menu and any choice you make will not disappoint!
Finest quality and service,!
Very nice atmosphere and great meal!
The food was great. The service is very good. The view is amazing!
The staff was very friendly. No wait at the valet. Food was amazing. Highly recommend the empanada appetizer. Boliche was what I’d been craving and it was delicious.
The Columbia is a local favorite and a must when you’re in Tampa Bay!
Beautiful scenery sitting out by the water on the deck.
The ceiling fans were a little too windy up on the higher deck by the bar entrance, but I can see how they would be ok if sat on the lower deck behind the main restaurant. Problem was that the fans are all operated on one switch per waitress. Still was very nice and wait staff were excellent
It was lunchtime. Our waitress was extremely cordial. We ordered the 1905 salad which was very good. Our entrees were the paella and salted do. The rice was mushy on the paella and overall disappointing including the presentation. I was not impressed with the Salteado.
A very disappointing meal.
Food and drinks were outstanding!!
All of the dishes we had were too salty. Atmosphere was lovely, but food average.
Drinks were good, service was great. Dean really took good care of us.
Wonderful service and food, as always
The service was great but the food was very mediocre. I dream about their house salad and it, the bread and the Sangria were excellent. All four people in our party felt that their entrees lacked flavor. I had mai mai, my husband had a pork dish and our friends had paella. All a disappointment. We all decided that we would return for salad and sangria but nothing else.
Spanish bean soup - outstanding
Filet - very good
Garlic shrimp - good
Ybor crab croquettes - good
Queso fundido - disappointing
Service - okay, certainly nothing special
Great Cuban food in a very safe dining experience. Food was very good. Drinks also above average. Table spacing was appreciated and enhanced the feel of the restaurant. Highly recommend. Be sure and make a reservation and masks are required by the county government so DON’T give the staff a hard time (saw more than one blame them). Chill and enjoy a wonderful meal.
Columbia has long been a very favorite dining destination when I visit the Clearwater area. The last 2 visits have been very disappointing. I was there in March (pre covid) with a group and was not treated well. I was there again this past weekend, was seated in the windiest seat, asked to be moved which was apparently asking for a covid cure. When I was reseated, it was as if they had done me some huge favor. I found the wait staff less than pleasant and the food was really not very good. I likely won't go back.. :(
Lot of food great Sangria parking an issue at peak times
This is by far the best restaurant in Pinellas ! The food is always exceptional and so is the service . The view is beautiful. They are always cleaning. Highly recommend trying this place .
They did a great job of social distancing to make our dining experience safe and enjoyable.
I always have a great experience at the Columbia. The food is great--including the bread and salad--and so are the drinks. I love the view of the water from the deck, but the inside is beautifully designed as well. And the waiters are always friendly and attentive. This is my favorite restaurant in Tampa Bay. (That said, please bring back the crema catalana to the menu!!!)
The Colombia had really great service and the food was delicious. Suggestions by our server were helpful and spot on.
Great food, atmosphere, and service. I will be back.
Awesome meal AND service!! Izzi did great job making us feel welcome and at home!!!
The food was
