Description: Family-owned and operated for more than 112 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 Montecillo or Campillo. Relax outdoors in our cafe or courtyard, or inside our Tapas Bar or Mediterranean-style dining rooms filled with hand-painted tiles and family heirlooms. Casual attire is fine, but we don't allow sleeveless shirts on men. 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.

We have dined here a few times. This was our best visit! We had a party of 12 and had reservations. Great seating for all of us! Excellent server who was very patient with our group. EXCELLENT food and wine and sangria! What a great Easter!

We took a break from Park meals and went to Columbia restaurant in Celebration. This town is a treat in of itself as an oasis in Orlando. The Columbia restaurant had friendly staff. Great Paella and tapas. Easy on street parking. We sat outdoors and enjoyed the evening. Horse drawn carriages drove by looking like Cinderella carriages. Kept the kids amused also. This was an evening of food to be savored.

Ordered the special lamb dinner for easter dinner. Lamb was tough and fatty. The vegtables were cold and under cooked. The rice was cold. I have been to this restaurant many times and have had a great meal. This time it was awful.

We never want to hear that we let our guests down, and we are sorry that you were served a meal that was not properly prepared. If there is ever a time that your meal is not enjoyable, please ask to speak to a manager. We can then take care of whatever is wrong before you leave the restaurant. We hope to welcome you back in.

Celebration is a great little place. We sat outside and had excellent service. Had pitcher of mojito and it was an excellent drink. Had appetizer and and dinner ordered off menu and it was great. Little bit of wait for food but didn’t mind it was crowded. I would go back
