We have been going to Symposium in Hamilton every Wednesday night for the past 5 years. The food is fantastic and Cosmos are #1 here. The staff is always friendly and can't do enough for you. We recommend this restaurant to everyone. Cheers!

90 minutes to get lunch. Arrived 1pm Sunday, ate at 2:30. Super busy, under staffed. Great food but...our table of 12 adults and 7 kids were served separately over 30 minutes ( including 7 orders of grilled cheese!) Would not return.
