Waterfront dining at its finest! Family-owned and operated for 115 years, Columbia has earned acclaim for its old-world charm and award-winning Spanish/Cuban cuisine. Casual attire is fine, but we don’t allow sleeveless shirts on men in the dining room. Choose a table looking out onto the radiant blue waters of the Intracoastal Waterway from the Mediterranean dining room, or experience the casual atmosphere from our outdoor deck on the water. Join us for century-old family recipes like Paella a la Valenciana, Roast Pork a la Cubana and fresh seafood specialties. Sample a fine Spanish wine like Montecillo or Campillo. 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.

    Enjoyed our time there very much. Sangria was good, desserts were very good. We went there for our anniversary for drinks and desserts. Did not disappoint. Service was excellent. If you want to talk, go outside, the inside seating is very noisy.

    Was not impressed with food. Calamari was very salty. I had salmon cooked in parchment paper with tomatoes, artichoke, and asparagus. Was nothing special about it. My daughter had steak with very salty and peppery fries, plantains on the side, that had bad taste of old oil. Water glasses made a whole table wet, from melted ice. Water was running down off the table (not good for the “fancy” restaurant). Would not go there again. I believe people only come there because of the name.

    We had a reservation. I had my granddaughter with me. We were seated and that was it. My granddaughter overheard a waiter explaining that the power was out. We weren’t given that courtesy. We sat for 15 minutes and no one came to our table. Not even to offer us water. Finally we left. Very disappointed with the way we were treated.

Didn't seem to care.

    1905 salad with shrimp. Service (Darya K) was excellent, attentive without being overbearing. View on patio is spectacular. Thanks for another excellent meal Columbia.
