Columbus Grill offers casual dining beyond that of other Manassas establishments. The Mediterranean/American cuisine is perfect for family dining as well as a special event. With both banquet and catering services, Columbus Grill is your go-to place for dining for 2 to 140 people. The combination of casual charm and upscale ambiance is the perfect blend for any occasion.
A romantic dinner at Columbus Grill could begin with a soup or salad, such as the seafood veloute full of scallops and jumbo lump crab or the Portuguese salad. The mariscada with a full lobster, scallops, clams, mussels and shrimp is a divine main course, or go for one of the Portuguese cuisine specialties like grilled sardines. The appetizer and tapas menu are ideal for light appetites or as the prelude to the evening.
Nothing good to say. Food was bad. I had paella. Doubt they used any saffron. Bad all around.
We were the only ones dining at 6:30 PM on Columbus Day? Nice looking place on the inside. Service was good. Food was fair. Not gourmet at all. The restaurant features Portuguese dishes on the menu. OK for banquets.
This is not my first time dining here. In the past all my meals were excellent. I even had bunch several months ago and the food, the selection was nice. However, this time the selection was subpar, and the taste was disappointing. Please get it right for if this was my first time, it would of been my last.
Located away from popular shopping areas, we finally decided to try the restaurant.
We were greeted warmly and taken care of well by pour waiter. The decor was playing and in the Columbus theme as expected and peaceful - much nicer than most restaurants that have a constant music or TV noise in the background. Very relaxing and made for nice dinner conversation.
The Portuguese Salad appetizer was one of the best salads I've seen and tasted. Ingredients were fresh, plentiful and pleasing to the eye. We had Columbus Steak and Rack of Lamb. Both were excellent and of good proportion. The Drunkin Pear dessert was deliciously prepared and the presentation was beautiful. We recommend this restaurant and plan on returning.
We had my son's 15th birthday dinner here. Great service and food, scallops were fabulous! Very nice to see a healthy kids option in the grilled chicken and vegetables.
The Columbus Grill was easy and fun. Plenty of parking. Friendly people. Interesting food and all of what our party of four ordered was good. Foodies might be disappointed but for a supper out in Manassas, it is hard to beat. Moderate prices, good wine and liquor list, I think more could be done with the space in terms of decorating, etc but the food and service should be the main attraction and they both passed with flying colors. I appreciated the warm rolls with the meal and the waiters were professional and efficient without being cloying, if you know what I mean. I would say it is an excellent place to take friends or relatives from out of town.
Can't recommend this restaurant for brunch. Food was cold and not good. Pancakes/waffles were soggy, never refilled the ziti with shrimp the whole time we were there. Lots of fruit and desserts instead of good main dishes. Overpriced for what was there. Will not go back.
Service was okay. The problem of the evening was the menu. When viewing the website (same as open table) the menu looked to have a wide selection of menu choices. When we arrived, the waitress gave us a Valentine's Day menu which had maybe one tenth of the advertised menu. There was no indication this menu was going to be the menu of the evening on the website. The next event on the website advertised was St. Patrick's Day. I explained that to the waitress and requested the standard menu however she was not able to grant that request. We would have walked out however it was Valentine's Day and it would have been difficult to go else where. Will not be back due to the mislead menu and lack of proper notice per their website.
This place is just garbage.
I knew it before I went, I gave it a shot anyway, so in reality, it is my fault.
It was Valentine's Day and my companion & I wanted to stay near the house. We've dined here before & I was looking forward to the regular menu. Unfortunately, that was not the case. It was a poor selection of choices for a "Valentine's Day Special Menu". Heavy on the red meats & not at least a shrimp to be found anywhere. Started off with the Oysters Rockafeller and it was downhill from there. I will return because of the regular menu, but will never do Valentine's Day again.
