I was here 10 years ago and it was just as good as I remembered. The Gazpacho was delicious as well as the beef. They are also in the Tampa airport and the food is also delicious there as well.

We made a reservation for an early lunch due to a time limit. We were seated in a very large and enchanting dining room. The decor was rustic and very influenced by the origin of Spain. A must have Columbia's original 1905 salad.

There cuisine is more Spanish than Cuban. This site on 22nd is old and gives the restaurant ambience.it is often busy and service is good but a bit hurried, it is the normal vibe of The Columian in this area. The architecture is wonderful. Great...More

We had, unfortunately, a very disappointing night at dinner. This was the end tail of our honeymoon and we were hoping to enjoy a show with our dinner, and after many recommendations from family to uber drivers, this was the spot to do just that....More

This is one of the oldest restaurants in Tampa. The food, service and ambience are like no other. There were six of us for dinner. We ordered a wide variety from the menu. All of it was exquisite.
