I posted the same review on yelp but here it is again! By far the best symposium location I have been to. The manager who greeted my friend and I at the door yesterday at lunch was super friendly. My friend has a 2 month old so we came in with a stroller and the manager made arrangements for us... More

It is beautiful, has great staff and is very clean. However, this is a more expensive place to grab desserts/ drinks. It is valued as a classy place which is reflected in the décor, menu options & staff members. However, in my opinion it's overpriced.

The food was good, but overpriced for what you get. The service was good, but nothing special. Full bar menu with many drink offerings.

Have had breakfast, lunch and dinner here and it's always been great. Service is friendly and quick. I recently had a get together with friends here and they loved it. Have heard not so great things about other locations but never this one and I can attest to that. Only thing I don't like is the condition of their chairs... More

I've been to a few locations so I thought i knew what to expect. However? The service at this location was outstanding. From the host who sat me to the friendly agtentive server who made an excellent suggestion with the pesto chicken sandwich. The food was delicious and served piping hot. Dessert looked incredibly decadent. The tables are spaced well... More

As I continue to go to frequent this location I've noticed the quality of food is going down ,the place really needs to be updated. The staff is always good,no complaints on that. Renovate! Improve the quality of food. Thank you

It really doesn't matter how good the food was - the service was unbelievably AWFUL. Went for a business brunch on a Sunday morning. We were there for over 2 hours, not because we wanted to stay that long, but because the server just wouldn't come to our table. For example, - we asked for water - for a table... More

My friends and I have had breakfast at Symposium countless times. Our favourite items are the triple decker grilled cheese, the eggs benedict, and the french toast. Compared to other restaurants in the area, I like Symposium's breakfast potatoes the best. Food comes relatively quickly, even if they are busy. The big comfy chairs are also a great touch!

Been to a couple of locations across Ontario and after visiting this location a few times I still find it lacking good service. Food and drinks are always well prepared while wait periods and constant reminders are expected. I'd serve myself but then what would a tip be for? Hopefully the next time will be better. If more places like... More
