Waited for reservations past 15 mins. Food is ok. Service is beyond slow!
We have enjoyed the restaurant several times and never been disappointed. Good value for the money, nice menu. Highly recommend for a nice evening out
Food and atmosphere were great! Service was extremely slow.
We had the perfect dining experience. Our waitress was exceptional. We decided to have the paella which required 25 minutes preparation. In the meantime we had a lobster flatbread that was wonderful with a couple of glasses of sangria. The paella was worth every minute of the wait. It was loaded with seafood and served at the table. We had a churro dessert with chocolate, carmel and fruit dipping sauces. The whole experience could not have been better.
Amazing food! Our server, Crystal, made my birthday dinner fun and very special. Highly recommend!
I have been to the Columbia in Celebration, FL and was trying this location for the first time. Every bit as enjoyable. The service was first rate and the food was spectacular.
When a restaurant engages on Open Table it sets an expectation; Columbia did not meet the bar. My husband wanted to make our anniversary dinner extra special and he put specific info in the reservation booking. Columbia ignored the comments. When we arrived at reservation time, we were given the typical pager and told to hangout...why make a reservation? Then when the pager went off, we were taken to a table set for six????Huh??? Oh, wrong table....hostess didn’t know her tables, hangout and let her go check....one table over a table for four should work...I really don’t get why we made reservations, it really didn’t mean the restaurant would prepare for us, it just let them know they would have customers, maybe? The waiter quickly seemed apologetic for pricing and was more concerned with the best deal. Despite all that the kitchen saved this special night...with an amazing tapas appetizer, the Sangria and the paella....most nights would end with dessert but waiter didn’t even offer the dessert menu....last disappointment!
Everything was so very yummy! The restaurant itself is beautiful. The food is both authentic and unique. We hope to return soon!
Great place to eat good service great food should call ahead
The Columbia is one of my favorite restaurants! I try to go there every time I visit St. Augustine. The food and atmosphere are great for any kind of occasion. The 1905 Salad and Black Bean Soup are what I usually get but everything I have tried on the menu is amazing! The service was also fast, friendly and knowledgeable.
very disappointed in the chicken and rice. It was very dry. The salad lettuce was welted and overall not that good. In the past I had had much better quality of food at the Columbia both in Ybor City and St. Agustin. I guess that the tourist trade is dictating the quality of the ingredients that you are serving at the present. Good Luck that is all I have to say.
I had been to Columbia before and took a date to lunch. We had the 1805 salad and it did not disappoint.
Sat outside and enjoyed the day.
My girlfriend and I were celebrating an extended Saint Valentines day. It was her first time at the Columbia House. She was impressed and quite pleased!
Having living in Spain, I was very happy to eat there.. :) My only gripe was watching one of the personnel setting up the table for the next patrons, accidentally dropped a pepper shaker on the floor , picking it up and putting the pepper shaker on the table without wiping it off or putting a different one on the table..
Our Waitress name was Audrey. She was very informative of the menu with our few questions we had. Very friendly, very nice all around. She gave me & my fiancé a very quiet dining experience. I would love to her wait on us again and again. I can the passion & professionalism she has. The food was like a art painting, priceless and very delightful
Great restaurant. We had the pollo manchego and the pallomilla steak, both phenomenal. We also shared the queso fundido and sangria which were a huge hit! Would return.
Great food. We come here ofter for the great salad and Spanish dishes.
It was our wedding anniversary. We drove up from Titusville about 100 miles just for lunch. Great food. Will do it again.
Excellent food and service. Always a special treat!
Service is slow. They have great salads, but need more staff.
This restaurant was very good and had great food, it is accurately priced for the quality of the food and service, can't beat being in downtown St. Augustine as well. Would recommend to anyone.
Very very dry kitchen. We told the server assistant. All she did was apologize.
Second time here; food is exquisite, totally worth the price, even if it was pricey. Ambiance was ok, full on Valentine's Day. Probably that's why the service was regular. But is a good place to lunch or dine fine Spanish cuisine.
Excellent dinner . Had 1605 salad, Delish, and paella delish Audray our waitress was wonderful.
Would come again when we are in town. Many interesting dishes. Good service AND NO WAIT!
Anniversary dinner. We will definitely revisit someday
Great time by all six of us, table ready ahead of reservation time. Great
Excellent service by Jenn our server. Food was outstanding. Great experience, we plan to return.
Columbia is always a favorite for us. This time it was Valentine's Day. I made reservation late and this was one of our favorites that still was available. It was a good choice.
Upscale dining for locals as well as tourists. Prices reflect the location and portions are very large. I highly recommend getting their scallop dishes as two of the 4 of us had that and they were spectacular. James, our server, did an outstanding job of attending to our table. Best meal we have had in St. Augustine so far.
