Love this place: especially the Key Lime pie! Visit each time we’re in the area.
Phil was a fantastic server! The experience st the Columbia is always wonderful.
We were on vacation and had dinner with friends who live in the area Excellent Mojitos, (best ever per my wife) which were made table side by our waitress. We had the 1905 salad which was as good as advertised. My wife had a grilled pompano dish and I had a pompano dish in parchment paper. Both were outstanding. Great atmosphere. Waitress was excellent. Can not recommend this restaurant strong enough.
Waterside restaurant with outside tables; interior main dining room tastefully decorated with dark woods, Spanish tiles and decorative plates; beautiful tableware...
Service is professional, fast and efficient.
Complementary valet provides for no hassle access.
Food was delicious with lots of choices---emphasis is on seafood and tapas.
Recommend it but weekends and Spring Break place is very busy---call ahead for reservations.
Ate on outside deck with plastic awnings over windows. Was a very cool night but overhead heaters made it very comfortable.
Always a joy. Can’t get enough of the 1905 salad.
Great as always!!!!
Great place , go their every time I come down to Clearwater . Very good food and always fun . Do not miss the 1905 salad .
I would highly recommend this restaurant to everyone. We all had a wonderful meal and totally enjoyed everything we had. The table made Sangria was great! Service was excellent!
Columbia is always consistently good and never disappoints
Columbia never disappoints us. The atmosphere is lovely, the servers are top-notch and the food is delicious. We always order the white asparagus salad to share, and appreciate the table-side preparation of many of the entrees. It is gracious dining. It is always nice to see diners who dress for dinner in the main dining room, and the side areas are great for more casual occasions.
Our server was Denise and what a wonderful experience. She was always there before we needed her. A great lunch, a special birthday celebration, and the food was exceptional.
As locals it’s been a favorite since our move to the area 5 years ago. Prior to that when we visited the area we always made a point to go to the Columbia. We have never been disappointed. No abrupt menu changes and the wait staff is superb. Make a reservation or be ready to wait. Parking can be challanging but they do have valet service.
Excellent food and service!! We went for Sunday lunch. We enjoyed the authentic Cuban dishes we were served. The dining room is beautiful as well as the view.
We often choose the Columbia for a special night out. Outside is more casual, so we tend to choose the dining room for other nicer occasions.
All 4 entree’s were excellent. Portions large. Service great
Service was second to none. Very attentive and lots of personal touches. Custom gazpacho preparation at the table. Seated immediately and served quickly... this restaurant turns tables in under an hour. It is a cocktails place. Wine is “family wine” and beer options are limited. The food was good. We liked our tapas better than our entrees.
Yet another wonderful experience. Great food, service, and atmosphere!
Always a positive experience at The Columbia in Sand Key. Parking is a complete PITA, so plan on using the valet or driving in circles for 15 minutes and parking 5 minutes from the door.
Best sangria in Clearwater unless you like the sweet stuff.
Dinner selections always quite varied - something for everyone. Ingredients always top-notch and preparation & presentation is perfect.
Desserts good as well - while many places offer cloyingly sweet lumps of "whatever" the desserts at Columbia are more about taste and texture - we had 3 different desserts and our table and all were excellent.
The service is right in line with everything else - the waiter took the first minute to "read" our party of six, and then fell into just enough engaging banter to keep us smiling as we waited to be served. Not a single issue with our meal over drinks, salads, entrees, and desserts/coffee.
It's far from cheap, but you do feel your experience was worth the dollars.
Great food, service and ambiance!! We will definitely be back!
One of the best restaurant dining experiences in Clearwater. Great portuguese spanish cuisine (pealla, risotto, sangria made in front of you), all just great taste. Servers are so very professional and atmosphere is very nice.
Never a bad experience ever. Dined with friends we haven't seen in over 30 years. They were thoroughly impressed with the atmosphere and cuisine. Fresh baked cuban bread, red sangria, margaritas, shrimp, pallea ... I could go on and on. Words don't do it justice
Celebrated wife's birthday with daughter and grand daughter. It's always fun to try different Cuban dishes. The table mixed sangria was excellent. Our server, Juan was really great. We also had a visit from the very gracious manager. This was not our first visit to the Columbia, and we have enjoyed every visit, both at Sand Key, and Ebor City, and we'll be back.
The decor is very special, the view is lovely and the menu makes you want to return again and again.
Very good experience - table was ready despite us being early; service was generally attentive when needed; food was good as always, for a variety of dietary needs. Noise level made it a little difficult to hear, especially seated at a curved booth where some diners were a few feet from others. Would recommend it.
Excellent all around. I love the menu and the food was outstanding. The wait staff is professional and caring.
Looking forward to coming back again.
We visited on a recommendation. Great restaurant , excellent and varied menu and lovely atmosphere . Definitely return.
Excellent service. Good portions on the tapas. My friend and I shared 3 tapas for our main meal and we were full. Delicious and great minutia.
EVERYTHING WAS VERY GOOD; THE FOD AS WELL AS THE SERVICE. EXCELLENT PLACE TO VISIT.
One of the best restaurants in Clearwater. Grilled salmon is superb. Very nice sized portions. Have the 1905 salad. Its the best
Everything was great!
A wonderful dining experience. The seafood is fresh and cooked perfectly, the star of a dish that makes more than a cameo appearance. The sauces on the dishes pair beautifully.
When we first arrived they were seating us right in front of the kitchen where the servers go into the kitchen. I went to the hostess and explained I had made our reservation several days ago and wanted a different table. They honored my request and moved us to another table.
Food and service were great.... as always!
Not impressed with the meal that I had. Did not care for the rice. Noise level makes conversation difficult.
We love this restaurant! The food is excellent - I recommend Barcelona Chicken and Shrimp - it’s so good! They give you a nice-sized chunk of bread that is warm and delicious. The service is outstanding and the atmosphere is very nice.
An area favorite. Attentive service and quality food....nice combination for an evening with friends.
We had a table by the window overlooking the water. It was ready when we arrived. The food (tapas of shrimp and scallops, 1905 salad, paella Valencia, salmon baked in parchment paper) was delicious and would have rated it a perfect however it was slightly salty. The drinks, white sangria, margaritas, red wine were delicious and the service was impeccable. Would not hesitate to recommend.
The service was really good and fast but some of the food not too good and sone was really good.
Our waiter Yuri, was a bit impatient with us making our food choices. It's a large menu and it was our first time visiting. Food and drinks were delicious and atmosphere was nice. Don't like being rushed.
