    Very good food, gf menu is a little difficult to navigate because it is in Spanish with no description. Have to find it on the regular menu to see what it is

    Always a great place with plenty of options. I recommend the 1905 salad and black bean soup.

    So far so good, gluten free menu. The gluten free was a plus. I will let you know in 3 hours if it work or not. No updates means it worked.

    Absolutely fantastic food, service and atmosphere. Server and staff were knowledgeable and my two sons who are both extremely picky eaters devoured their meals. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys spanish/cuban inspired foods not only GF diners.

    Excellent food and service. We got the paella vegetaria and it was delicious! Ceasar salads and the eggplant were phenomenal too! Great place highly suggest it.

    The Columbia has become our family's favorite when in or near Sarasota/Tampa! The St Armand's Circle location is so cozy and the staff (Wait staff & Chefs) are very knowledgable on ingredients and food prep- it makes for a great, worry free experience. Caution to the non GF diners in the family- trying to eat a loaf of their amazing Cuban loaves will get you some serious stink eye from the rest of the table! :) great tapas menu and their menu is really a great read. Also, we stock up on their 'Columbia Hot Sauce' from the gift shop so we can daydream about our next visit when we are back in Ohio. Really- it's that good. Enjoy!

    They have a separate gluten and nut allergy menu that lists all foods containing gluten, and a separate section listing food that contains nuts. I ordered paella and had no issues, and my server was very knowledgeable. I would eat here again.
