We had a few small plates of tapas to share. The scallops were delicious. The decor and service was really nice and I was served the best martini I've ever had in my life. Definitely will visit again. Huge menu with so much to choose...More

We understand St Augustine is a busy town but to be filled with excuses for poor food and service is just that a poor excuse. My husband's Cuban had been sitting under a warmer so long he couldn't bite the bread, he said it was...More

After eating many times at the Tampa Columbia as a child, trying the St Augustine Columbia was "a must" on my recent stay in town. It did not disappoint, and it was so enjoyable for dinner, we went back for lunch to try a few...More

Can't say enough. Everything was excellent. From the Sangria to the servers to the food....awesome. Move to the area in January. Been there twice now. Both times had great food, drinks and server. Looking forward to the next dinner there.

We went to Columbia because of the TripAdvisor rating but were disappointed. The service was good but the food was lackluster. The 1905 salad wasn't much different than Olive Garden's. The Quest Fundido was a bit blander than I expected. We've had better paella, it...More

Family-owned and operated for over 111 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 and fresh seafood specialties. Don't miss Columbia's Original "1905" Salad(R), prepared tableside with our delicious, freshly-made dressing, a 110-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. Casual attire is fine, but we don't allow sleeveless shirts on men. Open 365-days a year, including all holidays. Please visit our website for the most current menu listings.
