Columbia Restaurant - St. Augustine
Casual attire is fine, but we don’t allow sleeveless shirts on men.
Join us for century-old family recipes like Paella "a la Valenciana," Roast Pork "a la Cubana," and fresh seafood specialties.
Don’t miss Columbia’s Original “1905” Salad®, prepared tableside with our delicious, freshly-made dressing, a 100-year-old family recipe of fresh garlic, oregano, wine vinegar and Spanish extra virgin olive oil.
Be sure to sample a fine Spanish wine like Montecillo or Campillo. Relax in our courtyard or Mediterranean-style dining rooms, filled with hundreds of hand-painted tiles and Spanish-style fountains.
We are a sister to the Columbia in Tampa's Ybor City, founded in 1905. Children's menu available. Open 365-days a year, including all holidays.
Fantastic in every way.
Our waiter was slowww. Perhaps he had too many tables. We were looking forward to a relaxing restaurant experience in a pleasant atmosphere. Hot, sweaty people in flip flops and tank tops was not our expectation. St. Augustine is a tourist town, but I think we will look for something else next time.
Eat here! My wife and I were celebrating our 41st wedding anniversary with our Granddaughter. Authentic Cuban cuisine, excellent fresh Florida sourced seafood, beef, and veggies. The server prepared a fresh pitcher of Mojito at our table. Refreshing and delicious! Flan and Key Line pie for dessert. I highly recommend Columbia for any occasion. By the way, the service was excellent.
We are local, and yes, this is tourist place. Parking is a plus for Columbia since you don't have to go to the city garage. A great staff member makes all the difference. Kelly O was super attentive and made what is normally an average but good experience a great one.
Ehhh...nothing special to write home about.
Why ask if it’s a special occasion? This was our anniversary and only the hostess said Happy Anniversary.. At least throw in a dessert on the house for the price of the bill, the food was mediocre and we really weren’t impressed.. The service was good. I have been to 3 other Columbia Restaurants and this was the least appealing...
Wonderful meal as always. Great staff and ambiance
Nice chain. Will go back but the weak link is mediocre service
Outstanding food. Service was top notch, our waiter help me navigate the menu since this was my first time there. WOW great food, the beef dish he recommend was fantastic. I am lucky enough to visit St. Augustine every couple of months and I will definitely be going back.
Fantastic historic restaurant. Tapas are a great way to share multiple tastes. Get tableside 1905 salad and Sangria.
Wasn’t what I expected.
We had a reservation and were sat past our reservation time. It felt very hot inside. Our waitress seemed confused and forgot things often. She was not good about refilling our drinks. I would not choose to go there again among the other st augustine restaurants.
Food, service, and atmosphere were awesome! Definitely recommended making a reservation and the Grouper Jimmy!
Wonderful experience with delicious food, we will continue to visit St Augustine so we can eat at Columbia
It was great overall but very warm the entire time at 5
You never disappoint. The 1905 salad is my absolute favorite. Will be back real soon!
Always a great experience!
Always a great time no matter the location...kudos to you and staff for making everything wonderful!!! We will be back...
Exelente servicio comida super sabrosa y lugar muy limpio
Around 6pm on a weekday took about 1hr for a dinner for 2. Prepare for that. The food is amazing. Totally worth the wait.
Great food & service!! Ambiance is definitely one of a kind!! 1905 salad a must!!
Very good as always was there twice this week
We have been to Columbia a number of times and the food is always outstanding. This past time our service was not as good as we have had in the past. We love the atmosphere and vibe of the restaurant. We will be back again hopefully we'll get better service.
JASON, OUR SERVER WAS EXCELLENT. THE FOOD IS AUTHENTIC. THE 1905 SALAD IS GREAT. THE FOOD IS A BIT PRICEY ESPECIALLY THE SANGRIA.
Our first time there and we were very impressed. We will be back and we would certainly recommend it.
Outstanding fresh fish selection. Our server was exceptional.
Really nice place. White table cloths and great wait staff. Excellent choice of superb entrees. The children noted how good their meals were without prompting. The building and history of the business is just fascinating. Priced correctly for the experience. Highly recommend.
Was recommended by friends. Went on a Tuesday eve. Made a reservation but seemed unnecessary. Many patrons but still many open tables.
Grew up in Miami and ate a lot of Latin food. The steak and the Mahi we had was authentic and excellent. I cannot say enough about our server.
Nay V was attentive, informative and energetic.
She helped make our evening special.
Great service as usual and our waiter Benny was the best! One of my favorite restaurants!
I have recommended you guys for friends to go and they have and love it and we have no problems going there anytime and I’ve always been pleased with the service and the food
It was such a lovely dinner experience again after many years. Dinner and dessert were excellent.
Bob and Karen Ballance
Excellent as usual
EMILY, OUR SERVER, WAS GREAT. THE 1905 SALAD IS EXCELLENT AS ARE THE MAIN ENTREES. A TRULY GOOD REPRESENTATION OF AUTHENTIC CUISINE. THE FOOD IS ON THE EXPENSIVE SIDE.
Consistently good! A great place to take out of town guests!
As always, excellent food and service. One of our favorite restaurants in Florida.
Columbia restaurant was fantastic!! Great food, service, and atmosphere. Plenty of choices on the menu for everyone and food was superior. Great portions for the price and all around a positive experience. Many friends who absolutely love the restaurant, and this was our first time. We give it hands down 5 stars!!!
I love this restaurant. They do Cuban well with meals in all price points and their fun atmosphere.
The experience was good and the food was great!
We loved our visit to the Columbia Restaurant! We easily made reservations and had no wait when we arrived. We loved the atmosphere and our server was terrific. I’m still thinking about that delicious salad and the grilled sea bass!
