Family lunch with Grandma was great! Lovely service by Julia, outstanding food, even had churros for dessert!
Great ambience and very interesting dishes very professional server. Need to be patient with kitchen. Mojito pitchers were great
The house specialty "1905" salad was definitely delicious. But after reading so many glowing reviews we were disappointed that the rest of our lunch was pretty average. The Cuban sandwich and gazpacho, for instance, just didn't seem to have that much flavor. Maybe it was just us, or maybe we didn't choose well. Service was great, though.
With two under-three year olds with us our party of six was seated in what appeared to be a private room. It was noon and the restaurant was very busy with a line waiting out the door, but they were ready for us. We were not alone, our rambunctiousness bothered few people, the noise level everywhere was high. The party of eight that was with us most of the meal was also having a GOOD time. The server was incredibly professional while also able to join in our fun. The food was excellent and arrived promptly and was piping hot. Our experience was wonderful, a celebration of the end of a vacation. Like Douglas MacArthur and the Terminator, we will be back!
As always the Columbia didn’t disappoint. The 1905 salad and bread alone are reasons to go! The table side sangria (the cava is my favorite) are light, refreshing and not to be missed. If you are looking for a quiet, romantic dinner out, this is not the place for you. The hustle and energetic atmosphere is part of the Columbia’s flare! The food and service are spot on and I highly recommend no visit to Sarasota is complete without eating at the Columbia!
Great place , great atmosphere, great food. Highly recommend
