I have visited Symbols on two occasions. The bar/restaurant is housed in a very nice old warehouse and has been very nicely done! This is as far as it goes with the positive feedback. The food is basically inedible. Really they need to do something about it!!! Don't go for food. They also don't know wine. We have ordered a bottle of one of their mid-priced reds and they brought the bottle to us at around 30C and when we asked why the barman's reply was that you must drink red wine at room temperature!!!! Yes, at 30C....!!! Really they do have a very nice place but need to put some more effort into it and hire some professionals to correct some of their issues.

As soon as you walk in the first thing that strikes you is the smell of cigarettes. Indeed, smoking is allowed in the indoor section but when dining out the least you want is the place to reek of cigarettes. The decor is a combination of 60s + rock but I sensed the place lacked a true character. What is it really? A pub (it looked like a pub with the huge TV screen showing football matches), a restaurant, a bar or a club? The music is equally messed up...Metallica and then Rihanna? Whatever the case it is not a place to eat in. The menu was restricted with only two salads, some burger options and a few grilled chicken/pork dishes. A vegetarian would have a difficult time selecting something worthwhile. The bill came at 36 euros for one burger, one grilled chicken, a beer and a glass of wine....too much for the quantity/quality of food. We will not be visiting again.

The decoration was somewhat nice as well as the location. Toilets have old, moldy and dusty doors as part of the 'decor' but still look dirty and unkempt.
We had another person join us extra than the number we had a reservation for, no other chairs available(!). Majority of staff very impolite and non-helpful. Very limited selection on foods and of no great quality/taste either. People that frequent that place are in their majority pretty rude and snobby.
Honestly, i would never return back, one of the worst places i have ever been to.

Been there with some friends. Having my pregnant wife having to cope with smokers around us just sucks.
We asked the waiter why they allow smoking since the place has no open space at all and his answer was that "they allow everything"...
There is no way I would go back there to have dinner or drinks. There is no respect any more.
