We were here for my sons birthday earlier in January. The food was good, but we were disappointed with the cheeseburger poutine. We had this at the Oakville location and it was delicious. When we had it here, it lacked flavour. It had no seasoning at all. The portion was huge, but we were surprised that the two locations varied so much in terms of taste. The wings were delicious. And the tacos were good. Just the cheeseburger poutine was a let down, especially since we ordered three. The best part of our visit was the service. Our server, Brennan or Brendan (I can’t recall the spelling), was extremely polite and attentive. He kept asking if everything was ok or if we needed anything. I was very impressed with this level of service. You don’t see that kind of service very often. We will return based on the service that we received, and try some other dishes.

We were there on a Friday evening with friends. Not much crowded. Friendly staff. Kitchen Manager Sathish, Server Ali and the manager ( don't remember his name) were friendly. We tried there fish and chips. Large portions and very good. Their chilled, red wine was very good. We would go there again.

We went for the Early Bird Special which is a very good value. It is from 4-5:30 so if we go closer to 5:30 by the time the meal is served it is our usual dinner time. The meal was delayed due to a problem with their computer. It was handled very well with apologies from the server and the manager and an offer of free desserts. They have a very nice variety of cakes. We also like to go on Sundays when they have 2 for 1 desserts.

Symposium has an outside terrace, where we sat for delicious espresso drinks and lunch. Jason took very good care of us. So great to have a nice place to eat, especially during Covid restrictions. Well done.

I ordered a specialty coffee and I was handed a beer glass with brown water in it - no coffee flavour. There were even some napkins to wrap around the tepid glass. She said it was made special for me. They did not offer to make it right when I politely sent it back. The main courses were decent. The service provided by various staff who came to the table did not meet expectations. I won't go back.

We went there for a birthday brunch and it was an excellent experience. The food was exactly how i had expected it and all in our party enjoyed it. It was delicious, very well plated and fresh. The service was another great experience. I have been to the restaurant a few times (under the old management) and though the food was good, the service used to be very slow but this time i was very pleasantly surprised to see the quick and friendly service. The owner, Parminder, came by and introduced himself and explained how he gives importance to customer service. The server, Isha, was very friendly and courteous and looked after us very well. The visit ended with a slice of cake for the birthday nephew. Thank you very much and surely we will eat there more often now.

Entering into Symposium Kennedy location one that I am familiar with, i asked for a table for two. Meeting a friend for lunch/brunch on a packed Sunday 1 pm. Manager showed me to a window booth table for four, NICE. Place was rammed servers were spinning in and out of tables. Server Bryanna caught me glancing for attentions. She approached my table said hi, can i get you something to start. Coffee please, and that I am expected a friend any minute. Needless to say my friend was super late 1 hour goes by, I then began to feel like OMG. Sitting at a table for four by myself and people are waiting for tables. The staff was understanding and so accommodating they made me feel at ease. My friend arrived and we began to order. Menu items were: JD Petit Filet great sauce, very tender. Sliced and cooked through sauce heavy on top better as an underlay, not gravy. Veg. Perfectly Crispy. Steak Bites App. Tough and no appeal. Mussels Marinara great dish done perfectly. Large and plump sauce awesome. Dipping crispy toasties is out of this world. Will need more bread. Great Value on Beverages of choice, features daily. I like the fact that they work on enticing people with daily features and drink persuasions. Food is casual dine and fun with a fair price. 3+ Staff is accommodating, Bryanna very cool .4 Chef Christo is " IN " Thanks for your Patiently Waiting.

We had an excellent time with impeccable service this morning at Symposium Markham. The service was delightful and management was great to work with. Anna was very helpful along with the other managers who created a custom menu for our event (baby shower). The food was delicious and the atmosphere was just perfect. Thank you again for making our experience a lovely one!

We visited Symposium in Markham over the holidays and were incredibly delighted with the quality of food, atmosphere and service. I had the chicken parm (highly recommend) and was happy to find a wine list with international options! After dinner we shifted over the to lounge area to watch the hockey game over drinks. Shout out to the manager, Nick, and the rest of the staff for catering to our every need! Definitely will be back.
