    It’s a great establishment and a lot of fun when visiting Ybor City. The music, to accompany the Flamenco dancers was unnecessarily loud, the “stomping” is enough to wake one up. Good entertainment! My wife who after the last visit declared the stuffed grouper to be the best she ever had, was a little disappointed this time … a little mushy as opposed to firm. That’s life. If in Ybor City, well worth a visit!

    Our server was great and the ambiance is great. The food, however, is never great, with the exception of the bread and salad.

    The food at the Columbia was delicious and unique. Our server, Brittany was engaging and very pleasant. The restaurant was very busy at lunchtime, so it took a while to get all the food. But it was worth waiting for. For the Spanish ambiance and the quality of the food and service, it would be hard to beat the Columbia.

    As always, Columbia was delicious and exceeded expectations. I was recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease and can no longer eat gluten. I was delighted with the gluten free options and our waiter made sure I knew what was safe to eat.
