So happy with this restaurant. I’ve dined at the Ajax, north Oshawa, and now Lindsay locations several times and every time I have a great meal. Todays meal was in Lindsay, we had the California chicken sandwich, and the Persian chicken burrito and both were...excellent. Great flavours! The calamari was nicely cooked but a little bland for my taste. Our server Roxanne was a hoot! She was delightful. It was my birthday and they brought us a delicious ice cream treat. This was the third time I’ve dined at Lindsay Symposium and it is definitely not going to be my last.More

My wife and I love the "Early Bird" special. Order before 10:00 A.M. weekdays and get a lovely breakfast at a really good price. Love the service too. Thanks Ingrid!

We were in Lindsay for a couple of days and chose Symposium for Sunday night supper and Monday breakfast. We were pleased with our meals , the atmosphere and the service. This is a chain restaurant but the wholesale restaurant suppliers are top scale .

My husband and I have dined here a lot as we are always impressed by the service, size of the portions and the price. I am not a picky or fussy eater, but he sure is and he loves this restaurant. We try to vary...our choices so as to try more of their delicious menu items and are never disappointed. I never seem to finish my meal not matter what I order, so I am really getting 2 meals for one great price which is awesome. We would highly recommend!More

Went there on the 22 June 2021 at lunch on outdoor patio even though it was cool day I ordered the symposium burger with 2 pattys but when it came it only had one which I noticed after taking a bite. I asked the waitress...and she said yes i put the order in for a double and she asked if I wanted the double burger and she we went and reordered. I decided to eat salad that came with it while waiting . It took at least 10 minutes for the waitress to return with the extra patty not a new burger as thats how she was trained. I spoke to manager and she thought everything was fine the way it was handled and when I said I wasn’t paying for it she advised she was only going to charge for single. To make matters worse it was a terrible burger certainly ot all beef not sure what it was made from .I won’t be returning to the resturant and suggest you find a better chice as well..More
