What great ambience and warm friendly smiles as I was greeted from the start of entering. Top notch service, cozy atmosphere, beautiful art work, & positivity from the staff team created an even better experience for my brunch. My meal was exceptional I washed down...with a mimosa which hit the spot. In conclusion, I will 100 percent be returning for more of this great food & inviting cozy cadence this place had to offer. Thanks to the front house, back house, and exceptional management.More

Great for a casual night out. Went on a Wednesday and there was live music on the patio. Patio was full and music was great. We ordered the special mussels and some martinis and cocktails. Espresso Martini & Purple Haze martini for the girls --...hubby ordered the Moscow Mule that was also on special for $7 - Great deals! There's also a date night on Thursdays with a fixed menu.More

My friend had avocado taast and a fruit cup and trimmings. That looked good. I had a chicken club. They forgot the bacon on the club. The sandwich had a dried out peice of chicken, on a big fat bun with tomato, lettuce. Chicken was...one of those prefrozen lumps of shaped chicken. Mayo on the side. It was very disappointing. Nothing like the traditional tasty club sandwich which has been a reliable staple in the past. I still feel bad about it.More

Enjoyed the most delicious fish and chips we’ve had at a restaurant in a very long time! We are east coasters and are accustomed to fine fish and chips. It was delicious! The restaurant was super busy that day and we ended up having to...wait a very long time for our food. Thank you to Gavin the general manager for taking care of us and making things right! Another reason we will always Keep coming back to the symposium!More

I usually come in with friends around 10 PM it is nice to find wait staff that doesn't rush you when you come at that time. The ambiance is great, food is good but service is only mediocre. Candace and Emmanuel spend time chatting with...their regulars and not giving enough attention to customers who might become regulars too.More

Have loved this place but last visit was disappointing. Service was good but food disappointing in quantity and quality. Fish tacos not warm, chicken quesadillas very little filling, minute quantity of cheese. If restaurants want me back they need to present better food, or I’ll...stay home!More

Tonight was the first time we had dined out in over ten months. We choose the symposium as we’ve been there many times before and it’s never disappointed... I have to say I was somewhat nervous reading some recent reviews on covid dining. We arrived...and where told it would be a 30-40 minute wait to dine inside but we could get a table right away if we dined outside... We choose to dine outside there was only one other family in the tent outside... Although it was a chilly evening the tent was heated with lovely lights strung about. We ended up having an absolutely delicious meal that was not only served piping hot also but fresh and absolutely delicious! Our waiter Robert was lovely at times it seemed as though he could read our minds and I have to say he was an excellent server! It was really humbling to see the hard work that this restaurant has done to ensure customer safety while still maintaining excellent customer service... The fish and chips and butter chicken and Calamari where absolutely delicious! Thanks Symposium restaurant for a much needed memorable dining experience in these very difficult times! We will be back soon for the delicious Calamari.More

I went on a Sunday with two of my friends. The caesars were the worst Caesar’s I’ve ever had. They tasted like spicy water. My two friends also ordered theirs not spicy, but got spicy water as well. The French onion soup was extremely salty....I had the chicken rice bowl, and it was delicious! The service was not good. I’m not sure if our server was new, but she took the order- and then we never saw her again and needed things like ketchup and napkins etc. I keep trying to give this place a chance but it always seems there is something wrong.More

I've been serving there for years and I took a position there for a handful of shifts. I was the only server scheduled and had over 20 tables, while the owner of that location nephew, the 'manager', refused to do anything, he was on the...phone because he's going on vacation. I still haven't been paid, but they claimed my pay; because I saw if when I filed for income tax.More

I go here a lot because the food / drinks are good and usually the customer service is as well! I’m not sure if they are short staffed but my service on a Saturday early afternoon was terrible. Barely saw the waitress. Finished eating and...wanted another drink and waited with our finished plates for 20 minutes before she came to clear them and we were able to order another drink. I love going here it’s a great local spot so I hope they can fix the staffing issue or address them if that is what the problem is with the customer service!More

Go there quite often for the breakfast. Can be a hit or miss at times, toast can be anemic at times. Peameal could be better (dry most of the time) On the whole I think it's the best breakfast in town.
