Blogger Reviews of Columbia Restaurant - Ybor City, Sand Key

  • Two Foodies In Love on Feb 18, 2014

    All of the tapas were amazing. The mushrooms were huge. Hubby doesnt really eat spinach or artichoke hearts but he loved them anyway. The flatbread was not what you usually see at a Cuban or Spanish restaurant and it was a great change of pace.

    The highlight of the entire meal was the salad. The 1905 typically includes lettuce, ham, Swiss Cheese, olives, Romano and garlic dressing. I asked for the ham to be removed...

  • The SOG City Oracle on May 28, 2010

    I ordered the "prepared to order" paella which came out dry and way over cooked as if it was a left-over reheated in the microwave. I had asked the waiter if it was prepared in the traditional manner with a toasted rice bottom called a socarrat. He looked at me as if I just got off the banana boat. And, no it didn't have the toasted rice bottom; one of the best parts in my opinion.

  • amazilia reviewGreat atmosphere. Be sure to go at a time when you can eat first and then enjoy the floor show over coffee and dessert.

  • hoffmankimberlyh reviewThe food is delectable. I especially enjoyed the Cuban tamales and would love to have the recipe. I would definately go back when in Tampa again.

    44444 by hoffmankimberlyh


  • chriscojb reviewWonderful flavors, but good food takes time. Fun in the bar, nice atmosphere there in Ybor City. I liked it, and have been back several times.

  • ChefMozA bit on the pricey side, but the servings are enormous and the waitstaff is great. Just have another glass of Sangria and laugh it off. I did.Delicious food, too. I had their signature Paella Valenciana and it was fantastic. So was their homemade Sangria. Eat like a king and watch the Flamenco dancing (you need to be there a half hour before the show to be seated with food).Everything I stole off other people's plates at my table was just as excellent as my Paella. I didn't take anything off other tables, though, so I don't know what the other patrons were having.Great food and a rustic atmosphere. It's kind of like you're walking into the Pirates of the Caribbean ride at Disney, only with tables and food.Make reservations, dress appropriate, and loosen your belt. It's really good. Oh, the show costs extra, but it's like only a Five Spot per person. If you're already willing to pay for the excellent food, the extra cost of the show is but a drop in the hat.ugh. I was so full I had to wobble out to the car.

  • ChefMozFine "Spanish" cuisine in an elegant atmosphere. THE place to go on special occasions (but not MASSIVE special occasions). On Mother's Day (2001), the place was jammed but service never failed to be the best. Food is fresher when such days are avoided; a sensitive palate can detect "held" foods to accommodate HUGE crowds.Even at such times, I would still recommend the Columbia for a graceful dining experience.

  • Paula W.After all the hype we just weren't feeling it. Waiter disappeared for long stretches. Did not keep water glasses filled. Gazpacho was disappointing as was dessert.

    22222 by Paula W.

  • Ed JWe were here for Thanksgiving late morning. The turkey was dry as a bone and barely edible but the service was even worse. We barely received our appetizers when the meal came and we felt rushed.

    11111 by Ed J


  • Paul N.Classic. At first you might think it's a tourist trap but it's the real deal. Good and service are excellent. Get the sangria.

    55555 by Paul N.

  • Juan HernandezThe (original) Cuban sandwich is a must, with a side of 1905 salad and tequila from Columbia's private barrel at Patron

    55555 by Juan Hernandez


  • Dani C.The deviled crab croquette tapas was tasty yet pricey. The 1905 salad was awesome! The only negative was the prices and the service was SLOW!

    55555 by Dani C.


  • Heather DService was horrible when we were there food is just OK. The best thing is the flamenco show

    33333 by Heather D


  • Christopher BTry the 1905 salad. Delicious!

    55555 by Christopher B


  • Christopher N.Not sure how this restaurant has lasted 100 years. The 1905 salad is simply a tossed salad and not deserving of the praise. My paella entree was overcooked and bland! Very disappointed!

    22222 by Christopher N.


  • Jennifer F.Everything! 1905 salad, paella, pollo de croquetas,, Merluza A la Rusa, sangria are a few of my faves!

  • Jason MullenVery good food at historic restaurant

    55555 by Jason Mullen

    11111 by Matt W.


  • Normen S.Spanish bean soup is surprisingly good. Salteago is like a Chinese stir fry, nothing special. Bread pudding is awesome, very rich, reminds me of crime brûlée, more than enough to share.

    55555 by Normen S.


  • Tori CAtmosphere, sangria, paella and stuffed peppers are all to die for! What a cool place that I would recommend to tourists and locals.

  • Linn W.Try the El Floridita Daiquiri!

  • Kellee A.Top to bottom amazing. Start with the 1905 salad. Sangria, paella and the white chocolate bread pudding are a must. However, I don't think you can go wrong no matter what you order!
