To say the The Columbian Café does not have the outward appearance of an excellent place for a superior dining experience is an understatement; and that makes it all the more fun to eat there.
Using superior local ingredients of all sorts Marco prepares each dish cooked to perfection and loaded with fresh flavor. Recently, I ordered a smoked salmon crepe there after having a entrée with the same name at 2 other Astoria restaurants (Silver Salmon and Baked Alaska). If Columbia was a 5 (best), the others were about a 2. It has been like that every time we ate at Columbian for appetisers, entrees and dessert (as well as the limited wine list). Service is also top tier; the staff all seem to love what they do and the place they work.
So when in Astoria, take a chance and try this place out.
