    An incredible evening out. Our steaks were cooked to perfection, service was outstanding and we so appreciated the extra care and attention the staff took to ensure my meal was gluten free/celiac safe.

    The price is way too high for portion size . I understand food prices have gone up but the prices are way too high. Service was fine but should have been better for price . For those prices my water glass should never be empty.

    My husband and I went for a date last night to the Comumbia Steakhouse & Bar in Trail, BC. We shared some baked shrimp that were just super delish with a bit of cheese on it and the yummy sauce and also a Toasted bread with parmesan cheese on top ! And for the main we both got the steak and lobster combo! The steak it's just something so good ,super tender, cook to perfection(medium rare,I like mine) and it was just melting in your mouth! Also accompanied with the lobster ,that was really delicious as well and mashed potatoes and glade carrots! I loved all the food and it was just one of the best steak and lobster I had !! The waitress that serve us was super nice and really good at her job! We had a really nice evening!

    I felt rushed when the waitress was removing our guests plates before the entire table was finished eating, almost like trying to tell us to leave. And the lighting was too dim for reviewing the menus. However, the food was exceptional and the waitress was very pleasant and doing her best to accommodate our every whim. I might suggest a few more chicken or pasta alternatives on the menu.

    Columbia Steakhouse & BarResponded on September 27, 2023

    Thank you so much for the review! I apologise for making you feel rushed, it was not our intention. Some of our newer team members are perhaps overeager to provide great service! I hope we'll be able to serve you again in the future.

    Since moving from Vancouver to Castlegar several years ago, we have never found a restaurant that is upscale with a lovely date-night elegance and perfectly prepared food (steak in particular) and service. We found it now! Our meal was perfection and the service impeccable. This is our go to place from here on in. Thank you to the chef, kitchen staff and servers ❤️ The martini was perfection in a glass😉

    We arrived at 7. Had cocktails then appetizers then mains. When we asked for a dessert menu we were told the kitchen was closed. We felt that they were trying to rush us out. It was 9 on a Friday night.

    Service was adequate. As a retired business consultant, I taught customer service. I know how it should be. No personal touches, just basic communication offered. My steak was full of gristle, potatoes cold. It did not go unnoticed because we were offered appetizer coupons for next visit. We are very generous customers and always tip well. I think I need to come out of retirement and start earning the tips the staff are getting and not earning. It was my birthday and it was not a celebration. The last time we came it was our anniversary. Sadly, I doubt we will come again.

    Columbia Steakhouse & BarResponded on April 11, 2023

    Hello Sharon, I apologize for your disappointing experience. We were unexpectedly busy during your visit, and found ourselves short of staff. In no way does this excuse the inadequate service you received, and I share your disappointment. If there is anything else we can do to make it right, please don't hesitate to contact us.

    Let’s me set the scene. It’s valentines and I want to impress a lady so I’ve booked a table at the classiest place in town. When we arrive we are instantly and warmly greeted and shown to our table, offered drinks and told the special. Such great service, we ordered the special, steak and lobster. Started with an awesome Caesar salad. The main was amazing. The lobster was very well presented and delicious btw. The veg was perfectly done, the potatoes we divine and the steak (I upgraded to the ribeye) was one of the best steaks I have ever had, medium rare with really great charring. So full after all that food but there was still desert, peanut butter cup cheesecake with whip cream and a strawberry compote, so rich and delicious. This place is quality and class. We will be back. My lady was impressed ;)

    Food was less that mediocre. I asked for my salmon to be medium and it came out well, dried out and chewy almost as though it was microwaved. My colleague’s steak came out borderline raw. Mixed drink was also not good. Staff was very friendly and attentive, but food failed. I would not return or recommend.

    Excellent food and service. Great Rib-eye steak, good flavor, well marinated. Onion rings were nice and crispy. Mashed potato tasted good but portion was a little small. The garlic toast was too small, could have been normal size. Other than that I give the meal a good review, and would recomend it to others looking for fine dining. Thank you: Robert Fertich

    We enjoyed our dinner but all of us did find it quite salty… still absolutely delicious but the salt could be cut back … also the only vegetable they have is carrots! They need some other choices .. broccolini goes good with steak! And lastly… the music is just too loud and doesn’t suit the restaurant.. we had trouble talking to each other due to how loud they have it! Overall though we love this place! Always great service and yummy seafood !
