Family-owned and operated for more than 116 years, Columbia has earned acclaim for its old-world charm and award-winning Spanish/Cuban cuisine.

Casual attire is fine, but we don’t allow sleeveless shirts on men in the dining room.

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.

    We were served a day old salad. Very watery and soggy and my fish was dry and over cooked. When we brought it to the staff attention, she was rude and snippy for the rest of dinner. We made this reservation weeks in advanced and were so excited to go. It was very disappointing

    Casually elegant. Food was delicious. We went with Tapas. Waiter was friendly and attentive. Good overall value for tourist location of old town St. Augustine. Save room for dessert because the bread pudding steals the show!

    I have eaten at every Columbia restaurant and as always it is an amazing experience! The best dish to order is hands down the chicken and rice. I would also try one of their many excellent soups to start.

    We are frequent diners at Columbia, all locations. They are very consistent in food and ambience. We had a tapas assortment and the always delicious 1905 salad. We will revisit later in year

    Great brunch early on a busy Sunday of a holiday weekend. Ordered the usual favorites and enjoyed them all, along with some red sangria and that hot from the oven Cuban bread. Glad we had a reservation to avoid the wait of the tourist trove in St Augustine.

    Well our reservation was for 7:15 we didn’t get a table until 7:50 then we have to wait at least 20 minutes before water , bread and sangria was served plus another 35 minutes for the food by then we just only ate couple bites and took the rest home. I mentioned to the the server the the table next to us (9 guests)had water , bread and drinks within 5 minutes and with 20 min . Don’t give me wrong the food was good the service not so much . Granted was a holiday weekend. But could be better!!

    My favorite place! I’m a Tampa girl so I grew up there and loved the original Columbia. Always eat the 1905 salad with dinner.
