“Yummy food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Juice and cappuccino, two steaks. That was our order. We enjoyed the food, the steaks were done properly, my meal (Jack Daniel's flat iron steak) was absolutely fantastic. The cook (or perhaps the manager?) and also the waitress kept checking our satisfaction after our meal was served. One more important thing- THEY HAVE A GLUTEN FREE MENU!! this is totally priceless.
So the service was great, the food was yummy, prices are average, I will definitely come back,

“great family dining !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

its hard to believe this place used to be a run down LIcks, Kenny rogers and prior to that, a McDonalds,. Fantastic job on the renovations!!! nice ambience, comfortable seating. AMAZING DESSERTS!!! (2 FOR 1 desserts on sun night). Great hamburgers too, ($3.75 on mon nights). Only complaint is it can get busy, and not the best French onion soup. everything else is A+!

“Great Family Spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2013

Good prices, great menu but arrive early because this place is busy.
I really enjoyed the Blackened Basa while my wife had the chicken kabob. Both were well portioned eliminating any need for appetizers.

“Never ever going back!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

What a huge disappointment! We have been going to Symposium since it opened. It has been going downhill fast and now is terrible. The food is inconsistent and the service is not great. The bruschetta used to have lots of cheese on top and now it's barely a drizzle. You can get the same thing two days in a row and it will be completely different and not even the same size portion. It is bizarre. The only consistently really good thing on the menu is the desserts. The service is very slow and the managerial staff is rude and condescending. We were there last night and so many people were complaining justifiably. The manager on duty, Ishmail is obnoxious and rude. He is in the wrong business and should not be dealing with people. How he talked to customers was horrible. We had become quite regulars there but we will never go back. We bumped into 3 different groups of people we knew and they all said the same thing. Never going back!
