We order dinner there , waited over a hour to get our food. We were a large party of 8 and reserved before hand. We received our dinner and was horrific to see what was put in front of us. Everyone of us had issues...from over cooked, raw to one plate having glob of fat which was supposed to be Schnitzel ,both pieces had been breaded and fried to hide what was inside. Absolutely disgusting!!!More

Part of a small chain, the restaurant has a surprisingly large menu and the food is always well-prepared and well-served by an attentive and friendly staff. Any problems are solved with a smile. Terrific breakfasts. Open late. Great to have in town. Even vegans will...find it accessible.More

Just came back from family day breakfast at Symposium. The service was very quick and the meals came out in good time. My wife had the French toast which she said was delicious. My son and I had the three egg omelet and they were...cooked nicely. The plates were warm and presentation was good. Great place for breakfast with the family. Good atmosphere for conversation not to noisy like some other breakfast spots.More

Had a bad experience with service AND food and got absolutely no reply to my lengthy letter of concern on their website. Won't be returning unless I hear from them.

The Early Bird breakfast is an amazing deal. I love the breakfast sandwich deals.....they come with potatoes but you can choose a fruit cup for no extra charge with the Early Bird. The special also includes coffee or tea.

We never had a lot of luck at the Aurora location, so we were not too excited to try this place. Friends asked us to join them here, and we are glad we did. First of all, they are very competitive with their daily specials...price wise. They have both food and drink specials happening. On Thursday night they offered offered a $48 fixed menu for two. Great choices of salads, entrees, desserts and coffee. The food was really good, service was friendly but the place seemed a little disorganized in regards to whose job it was to seat new customers, they seemed to stand waiting for a table for a long time. This night they had an open mic activity starting at 8:00p.m. They had great singers and musicians, we really enjoyed it. We are glad we gave this place a chance, we will return for sure.More

Taking a mobility impaired friend out for lunch with her visitor from England we decided to try this location. Very easy access from the parking lot and the hostess accomodated our friend. The food was good but the service went above and beyond. Thank you...Natasha.They didn't rush us and in fact allowed us to linger and visit. The food was good and in fact the kitchen sent a message out to our friend that they felt her burger was overdone and was being replaced and aplogized for the delay. We will be backMore

Had a wonderful lunch at symposium cafe. I enjoyed their turkey club with a Mediterranean salad. The dressing was house made and absolutely delicious.

I love coming here! The food is amazing and the staff and service is exceptional. Micheala our server was the nicest most pleasant lady to deal with. Always plan a breakfast or dinner here each month.
