I have been to the other Columbia locations and St. Armand’s is the Best! I will probably go to this location again but only because of the close proximity to our hotel. Not bad, just not great!
We had a wonderful dinner, overlooking the intercostal waterway. The 1905 salad was a huge hit, as was the sangria. Great service, wonderful atmosphere. We'll be back!
The restaurant is beautiful and tried the 1905 salad which was everything we were told it would be.
The food we ordered was much to salty for us. That may be just us....loved everything else about the establishment though. Service was great
Dinner for two, table with a great water view, great wine choices and a broad range of food options on the menu made for a wonderful date night.
We just loved the Columbia restaurant.Awesome food and great service. Will be back!!
We have been here several times and it is always a wonderful experience. The dishes are tasty and well-presented. Service is always attentive.
Fantastic food, beautiful view, and exceptional service.
Wonderful fun. Beautiful atmosphere. Always enjoy dining at The Columbia restaurant. Can't wait to return.
Went to Columbia Restaurant with my wife to celebrate our second anniversary. We had a great table by a window looking out over the water. The service was fantastic. He knew the menu and was able to answer our questions. The food was great... especially the White Chocolate Bread Pudding... I would recommend that any day! This isn't my first visit to the Columbia. I've been to this one in Sand Key a few times. I've also been to the one in St. Augustine and Celebration. They are all just as good!
The Columbia never disappoints! Everything was perfect
First time at Columbia Restaurant in Sand Key...excellent food! I had the Arroz Caldoso con Mariscos. A large bowl full of pasta, shrimp, scallops, calamari, lobster and chorizo with green peppers, tomatoes and garlic with sangria. It was followed by the best bread pudding that I have ever had...way too much to finish. The server was friendly, professional and very helpful.
Sat outside and had a wonderful time.The waiter was marvelous and the food was great.Th3 1905 salad and sangria made at your table.
wonderful food/drink and beautiful time- they brought out a flan desert for my birthday and sang
I would highly recommend this restaurant.
I absolutely loved this place. Would return in a heartbeat! The worst part was trying to decide what to get. Then menu was as incredible as the view!
Excellent as always...great seafood and wonderful service. We were seated next to a large group which made the area noisy. It was our 31st wedding anniversary celebration dinner...we probably should have asked to move to a quieter area.
Lovely meal. Staff are knowledgeable about gluten free options, and provide lots of options. Staff are friendly, yet professional. 1905 salad is amazing, table side mojitos. Great experience over all!
Great place l have been to Clearwater on a number of occasions and kept saying we must try Columbia but then didn’t. Boy have we been missing out, fabulous food, service and atmosphere
Amazing food! Many items made or finished right at the table (i.e. sangria, salad, crema catalana). Fantastic grouper dishes! Love the Cuban flare! Will be back!
I have been there before and also in ybor city. Always happy with whatever I order and the service I would drive there from Pasco County anytime because I love the atmosphere the service and the food
The food was amazing and the view was spectacular!
Had an awesome experience for my wife's birthday. The seating was great the service was even better very friendly and knowledgeable we are definitely going back
Food and service was awesome!!!
Before I left the restaurant, I told my waiter that this was the best restaurant experience I have ever had. I was not kidding. The service was outstanding. My friends and I had never had Cuban before, so he took his time and went through the entire menu with us. We were brought straight to a table after making reservations, and the food was amazing. There are so many fantastic choices for food it very well could make your head spin.
We took our friends for the first time they really enjoyed it. It was a great time by all.
Great food on the waterfront. Waitstaff is friendly, willing to make suggestions and help ordering. One of mu favorites!
Food and service exceptional as always. We always enjoy the waterfront view.
Food was good; alcohol overpriced.
Salad and bread are amazing here. Staff was very friendly and accomodating. Will definitely be back.
The service is top notch. The food is amazing and worth every penny. This is definitely one of my favorite special occasion restaurants to visit. The 1905 salad is one of the best you will have.
Interesting, I was looking forward to having lunch at the Clearwater Resturant and found it fell short of my exceptions. Started with the mojito, not a classic it tasted like crushed peppermint, club soda and a wedge of lime, at $10.00 each was not good. Then my wife had Cannelloni de Langosta
"7 Portes" wonderful dish, but the cheese sauce was a cheddar which dominated the dish. And I had the Pompano "Jimmy" good, but the fish was thin and over cooked, the crab, vegetables and rice were delicious. The service and venue were excellent. It will be a while before I go back, or recommend this restaurant.
Very beautiful restaurant with an old world feel... the 1905 salad was awesome! Would go again!
Our waiter was vert attentive and friendly. Accommodated our request for a picture and actually suggested we do several at different views.
The 1905 salad was very good and the steak was excellent.
The food was delicious. We were there for a birthday and really enjoyed everything about the restaurant. Since it was our first time there the waiter gave us excellent suggestions.
Lunch with the girls on a Tuesday afternoon. Shared several tapas, which were delicious. Lobster croquettes were sweet and light. Scallops were fresh and seasoned perfectly. Stephan provided incredible service! His service and the tableside sangria made our afternoon delightful. We WILL be back!
Our daughter and her husband moved to Wisconsin. The first place they want to go when ther come home is to The Columbia.
Brought out of town guests, and, because of our experience in Ybor City and at the History Museum, totally hyped the place!
Our server was sweet. But the food was extraordinarily disappointing.
They may use the same recipe for the 1905 salad, but it was subpar.
Additionally, the Corvina was very dry and tasteless (this is the third time we’ve tried Corvina and it will be the last).
The lobster canelloni was megar in seafood and the sauce could have come out of a can of cheddar cheese soup.
Yet the bread pudding got high marks.
Sad to share, but felt the need to.
I was here for my birthday and had been trying to come for 3 years. It did not disappoint!!! The atmosphere is phenomenal and the service matches. My food was exceptional and we left extremely full and well pleased. I will be returning again very soon.
Our server was amazing! It was my husband birthday and he made us feel so welcomed ! His last name is Waheed.
ALWAYS a wonderful experience! Must have the 1905 Salad made tableside...AND the sangria, also made tableside. Authentic Cuban food & atmosphere. Always great service as well! If visiting from out of town, recommend this place for a local flavor....
Excellent food and service. Love the “1905” salad - yummy!
