Vacation Easter dinner. Always great at the Columbia.
Easter dinner with family. Visiting from out of town. A lot to choose from on the menu. 1905 salad delicious. All of our dinners were great.
Easter dinner at a restaurant expected to be ho-hum. Not at Columbia Sand Key! Spectacular views of the intercostal, great food and the best trained staff in the costal ClearWater area. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Outstanding experience, very enjoyable. I would highly recommend to anyone. Our Waiter was excellent.
Everything went smoothly. We were seated before our appointment time and the wait staff was there quickly. Food was good, although the carrots were undercooked.
Easter dinner with family.
Wonderful Easter Dinner at Columbia Sand Key! A nice table by the window with a beautiful Bay view.
The food was great! Our waiter Kevin was very attentive without being pushy.
A little pricey but an excellent choice for a special occasion.
the food was Excellent !!!!!! the waiter was Excellent (Jeff) !!!!!!!
Wonderful Easter Lunch experience.....our server Trevor was outstanding and the meal was delicious. Beautiful decor inside the restaurant and panoramic views of the intercostal waters through large glass windows at back of restaurant. Outside seating on back deck by the water was also available.
We’ll be back....soon
Excellent food and service. We will be back. Really enjoyed the table prep for the salad and the Sangria. Very friendly staff and waiter. This is how restaurants should operate.
Excellent food and service, Logan was very helpful in making recommendations. They initially seated us in the bar area, but when we requested to be moved that were very accommodating. The formal dining room was much nicer and as an excellent view.
The table side making of the sangria and the salad was a fun experience! All of our meals were delicious and well worth the cost. We were celebrating my husband's birthday so the flan was a fun surprise for him. The view was the icing on the cake!
Service was very good, the food was average. My wife and I had the Red Snapper which was supposed to be the fresh catch, but it was a bit dry and not a great portion considering it was one of the more expensive items on the menu.
Fabulous food as always!
Birthday dinner party for my 7 year old granddaughter.
Bin there before, keep going back. The entire family think it’s great.
Food is always wonderful, especially like the 1905 salad for the table and of course the paella was great.
Looking forward to the next time.
And a big Thank You for the Birthday Song at table side for my granddaughter!!
View of the water was great, tried a bunch of tapas and dessert our server was excellent. It didn’t have the feel of the Ybor location but the nice breeze on that water made up for it!
Pricey for food choices, service a little slow on a Wednesday night, outdoor space is great, valet parking is a plus
Food was good, view was lovely!
During our visit to Clearwater with my wife’s cousins, I suggested we enjoy another experience at Columbia. We were not disappointed. This is a world-class restaurant in all aspects. We enjoyed outdoor seating on a beautiful Florida evening and our server, Dean, made the experience that much more enjoyable.
Perfect..classic....delicious....a dream. Food, drinks, service....a perfect hurricane of deliciousness
The food was delicious and the service was great! Definitely would return
My family of four had a wonderful experience! The environment, food and service were wonderful!!!
The Mahi was so dry that we left it on the plate and the service wasn't the waiters fault but poor management. We waited for our food too long and it was cold.
We had late reservations. Waiter made us feel rushed and unwelcome. Seemed like he was tired and wanted to go home.
Wonderful people, delicious food. View on the outside patio was fabulous.
Sat outside on a beautiful day, and it was very comfortable. The food was excellent as was the service. This is my favorite restaurant. We are snow birds and have been looking for a restaurant for Thanksgiving and Xmas, and they are open all holidays, so we will be coming here in the future.
Yuri is an exceptional waiter and took care of the four of us very well. The food was and is always so tasty.
Always a fun time with great tasting sangria, lively atmosphere, and great selection of delicious food.
Everything was great except inside the floor was slippery
Our server, Kevin, was fantastic. He no only explained the meal but the history as well. This is a must have when visiting.
Spanish Tapas and pescado (seafood) mediterranean style, exzellent! And so are the cocktails.
From cocktails to desserts, our experience was amazing! Our server, James C was attentive and friendly. There were four in our party and each ordered a different entrée, so we were able to sample multiple dishes. I ordered the Marilyn & Joe, my Husband ordered the Shrimp & Crab Enchilado, one friend ordered the Grilled Sea Bass and the other ordered the Paella. All dishes were served hot and fresh and absolutely delicious. We can't wait to go back to try more selections! The view of the water was the icing on the cake...although the Guava Turnover was to die for!!!
We went for lunch... we were not disappointed
Cuban sandwich was well presented
The grouper sandwich was also very good.
Next time we will be back for dinner!
Ladies at the reception desk were not friendly at all, didn't even greet us. BUT, Trevor, our waiter made up for it. I honestly can say that he was the best waiter I have ever had. He definitely made my birthday lunch exceptionally great!
First time at Columbia Restaurant. We dined on the outside deck, since it was a beautiful evening. The service and the food was great! Definitely will return.
My girlfriend’s 85th birthday
The service was wonderful. Our server was Adam and he did a lovely job. Perhaps a little nervous but still good. The food... well I’d have to say it was def subpar for the price. The puntas filete de Jerez were tasteless and chewy- minimal seasoning and over cooked. The queso fundido was remarkably lacking in queso. The coliflor had breading so underwhelming, I can only imagine it competing with cardboard. The pollo asado was a good as a rotisserie chicken can be- pretty good but the accompanying veggies were again, tasteless and bland. The one bright spot was the table side Sangria. We got the white and it was delicious and refreshing. Overall the atmosphere was lovely on the water but clearly some people cannot read and seem to think feeding seagulls while other people are dining is a great idea- it is NOT. It was very loud but to be expected with vacationers. I’d say I won’t be back. It’s very baseline average food but a lovely space. The prices must just reflect local property tax and rent bc it isn’t reflected in the food.
Wonderful food,wonderful ambiance, wonderful server.
You can’t go wrong here...beautiful restaurant and views. The service was outstanding and prices are reasonable.
We come every year and Columbia Restaurant is always on our itinerary.
