Columbia Restaurant - St Augustine
Family-owned and operated for over 100 years, Columbia has earned acclaim for its old-world charm and award-winning Spanish/Cuban cuisine and wine list. Join us for century-old family recipes like Paella a la Valenciana, Filet Mignon Columbia, and fresh seafood specialties. Don't miss Columbia's Original 1905 Salad(R), prepared tableside with our delicious, freshly-made dressing, a 100-year-old family recipe of fresh garlic, oregano, wine vinegar and Spanish extra virgin olive oil. Be sure to sample a fine Spanish wine like Torres, Montecillo or Campillo. Relax in our courtyard or Mediterranean-style dining rooms, filled with hundreds of hand-painted tiles and Spanish-style fountains. 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.
My husband and I love Columbia! We even had our wedding rehearsal dinner there. I recommend the 1905 salad, spanish bean soup, and paella marinera. If you can go during the week the wait time will not be as long.
Every year we go to St. Augustine and eat at Columbia Restaurant. It is my suggestion to go for lunch, it is cheaper, you do not have to wait as long and they have the same menu at lunch as they do for dinner.
Disappointing. The service was good and we were seated quickly but the food was overpriced and the portions were small. The worst - crumbs everywhere - stuck to the table, the flatware the floor and seat and 3 out of 4 fresh glasses waiting on our table were dirty. One even had the lipstick imprint from a previous user. Yuck.
I have been here a few times with mixed results. First the atmosphere is beautiful and very light and airy. The servers are friendly. However, the price are through the roof! You will usually always have to wait for a table sometimes 30 minutes or more. The food is just so-so and you have to wait for that too. However, the charm and the service are very good so it's a mixed call.
We come to St. Augustine twice a year and ALWAYS eat here, usually for lunch, the 1905 salad and spanish bean soup are a must. They have a wonderful gift shop so you can take dressing and spices home with you.
The food was wonderful, but eventhough I made the reservation a month in advance and told them it was for our anniversary they stuck us in a room with the bar and several large noisy parties.
Highly recomend it for anyone who wants to have a nice dinner in a casual ambiance, not recomended for romantic diners.
