Always spectacular food! 1905 salad is a must! We come here whenever we are in the area or wherever there is a Columbia!

Columbia Restaurants are always a good bet in Central/North Florida. The seafood is always tasty, nicely spiced, and delicious. Don't miss Stone Crab season when they keep a full stock because they go so fast. Try the Fideua Mariscos which is like a fancy bouillabaisse....More

Excellent food, good atmosphere in local setting. However, best for sangria. Both white and red. Moderate pricing.

Second time at this restaurant after a great visit years ago. Good service and food was tasty but glass of Sauvignon Blanc tasted skunked and the Tango Mango daiquiri was watered down and lacking in rum. Very convenient to Bohemian hotel.More

We are pleased that you enjoyed your experience with us. Our name is actually “Columbia,” not Columbian. Our menu items are a blend of both of our family heritages, Spanish and Cuban -- showcasing many traditional foods as well as many items that are creations...More

Description
Family-owned and operated for more than 112 years, Columbia has earned acclaim for its old-world charm and award-winning Spanish/Cuban cuisine and wine list. Join us for century-old family recipes like Paella "a la Valenciana," Filet Mignon "Columbia," and fresh seafood specialties. Don't miss Columbia's Original "1905" Salad(R), 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 outdoors in our cafe or courtyard, or inside our Tapas Bar or Mediterranean-style dining rooms filled with hand-painted tiles and family heirlooms. Casual attire is fine, but we don't allow sleeveless shirts on men. 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.
