Columbia Restaurant - SandKey
Great dinner enjoyed every bit of it!!
A bit of a long drive from Bradenton but was well worth it. Ambiance was excellent and the service was also very good, our waitress Stefanie was great and food fantastic.
Living on their reputation it seems. Service was horrible, the worst I have seen in 5 years. Beyond slow, beyond noncommunicative. The food was passable. heavy heavy sauces that masked the flavors. No one in our party of 5 was pleased. Also, the temperature was poor as well. Had the meat combination, all the meats were cold and obviously cooked days before and poorly reheated. The seasoning was bland bland bland. The yellow rice was way overheated, I guess that was supposed to warm the meat that was cooked days ago. My wife had the three cannelloni with scallops lobster and shrimp? Could not tell which one was which as the sauce was heavy and bland.
This restaurant is always a go to when in Florida! We love everything about it from the table side sangria, to the seafood paella it is all wonderful! I also love the hearts of palm salad which is an added bonus! I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone!
The service was great, the view wonderful. The dining room in the ambience was good, as with all Columbia restaurant. My basic comment about the food, which was good was that it was too salty. I have been to many of the Columbia restaurants, and I don’t remember The food being too salty for me. Much better to let patrons salt it for themselves. otherwise, the quality of the place is wonderful, and the Clearwater location is just beautiful.
Great service and decoration
Best food in Clearwater by far.
Great delicious home style dishes and great service.
I will be back
No matter which of the Columbia Restaurants you go to you can expect a consistently excellent experience
Great food, great service, always a great experience!
The Paella I ordered was substandard. The scallops had a distinctive chemical taste which was a great turn-off! Drinks and other food were fine!
Enormous menu, fresh grouper; fantastic appetizers. Desserts could be improved and service was a bit slow. Great meal, would definitely go back!
Great experience while on vacation. Server was outstanding and shared the story of the family business.
Excellent food and atmosphere. Always love coming here.
As usual the food was good, abundant and reasonably priced. Everyone enjoyed their meals, except the Cuban sandwich. They were not quite up to par with other food you get at Columbia
Very surprised to find this beautiful restaurant almost empty for a weekday lunch. We sat outside by the water on a gorgeous day , had great food & service. There were 4 of us & we all enjoyed our appetizers, meals & one even had room for chocolate bread pudding after.
Was recommended by a friend and we went for dinner. Food, service, menu items all amazing. We will be back in May and definitely going back. Would have expected to pay a lot more, very reasonable price. Cheers
Delicious food and great service!
Love love love this place! Outstanding food, location and service. Never disappoints!!!
We sat in front room with only 4 tables. So not much going on. Our server Adam was awesome. The food was great.
The food was outstanding, the large room we were in made it very noisy. We will go back again soon!
Great place was my first time food is delicious and beautiful view of the beach highly recommended I was celebrating my birthday
Food is traditional Cuban cuisine. Great menu and food lived up to expectation. The service was attentive and they were accommodating to a child we had eating with us.
Best food Ive had so far in Clearwater
Both food and service was great. Our server, Taylor was fantastic.
Sangria was more of a show and not really substantial for what you get. Also was too sweet for me liking, not from the fruit, tasted more like simple syrup than anything else. The gazpacho bae was bland and sweet at the same time but again the presentation of the additional chopped veg tableside was a nice touch. One member of our party ordered a chicken dish that was very good. Three of us ordered fish, all were extremely bland. The service was good and very attentive. Just disappointed as our meal did not meet our expectations based on the recommendations of others.
Awesome - had the special 1905 salad and empanadas.. delicious
This was one of our top meals while in the area. We went to the one in Ybor a few years ago and wanted to try this one while in Clearwater Beach. We had Tapas and was not disappointed!
The decor puts you in the mood for their specific cuisine! Our server, Jess, was fantastic! Food did not diappoint, hot and delious!
I fell in love with the sparkling white sangria years ago, when the Columbia was at the Pier! My niece from Houston said she would drive 14 hours for that Sangria again! Thank you for making our evening delightful!
Great experience as always!
Service was exceptional.
Too much salt, particularly thé scallops that we didn’t eat. Usually, we were really satisfied of our diner but not this time. All four had the same opinion.
We had out of town guests to celebrate a birthday and they said it was one of the best experiences of their lives. Loved everything about the restaurant and can't wait to come back. It is one of our favorites and everything was wonderful as usual!
It was my Husband’s birthday and it was a great place to celebrate! We’ve been to the original location and the St Armands Location. This is my new favorite!!! Our Server Susan was exceptional!
Food was good as we’ve come to expect from Columbia, the location is pretty especially at our outside table, service was fine. We’d definitely come back.
There was no pork in the paella and the chicken in it was dry. Disappointed in that. But the rest was fabulous.
The Columbia never disappoints. Our server and food was top notch!
Great food, easy booking through Open table, Waiters are working very hard. Great job
Great experience and great food! The sangria presentation was impressive!
