Food was excellent. Wait staff very good. But long wait for our meals from the kitchen. Value for the money average.

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!

I joined friends for lunch there it was Friday so we all ordered fish and chips. The fish was greasy and the chips were frozen ones. We didnt complain but wouldn’t go back there again and wouldn’t recommend the place.

The restaurant was packed, people waiting to sit. Useless franchise owner paced while the staff rushed like crazy. We waited 45 minutes for our mediocre breakfast. We will NOT RETURN to this location.
