I have been there 3 times and as the title says breakfast seems best. We had 3 fresh eggs with peameal bacon & western & cheddar omelette and they were good. Usual breakfast items with a couple of different things like Thai Pineapple Pork in the mix. Our second visit my sister-in-law had the Grilled Fish Sandwich and said it... More

My husband and I went here for a quick lunch a few weeks ago. He decided to try the special; which was the seafood paella, I opted for a grilled chicken wrap. Our server was nice, and attentive the entire length of our visit, which is always a plus. I wish we could have said the food was just as... More

Mussel Marinara appetizer was thoroughly enjoyed by our Pendicton guests. Our orders of Blackened Tilapia, Teriyaki Chicken Rice Bowl and Seafood Pasta dishes all arrived together and every dish was done to perfection. I would highly recommend this restaurant. The service and atmosphere was just as good as the food.

I have been to the Symposium Cafe about 10 times and absolutely love it. The meals are delicious and there is a great variety. The entrees are served with fresh vegetables, not frozen here. The service is always great here. We will be back!

I brought my husband to this restaurant for a Father's Day breakfast. I ordered the egg's benedict. The eggs were hard boiled. The manger stopped at the table and asked how things were (honestly, he presented like a host, I had no idea he was the manager until later) I told him and showed him the eggs. The first one...

Ordered 3 starters only 2 came out so not a good start. Tried 3 wines didn't like any of them. When the mains came the veg was so hard you couldn't cut it with a knife. Pork tenderloin was very tough. My husband had salmon which was OK and I had tilapia which was OK. This was supposed to be... More

Ordered the Louisiana Cajun Shrimp bowl from the lunch menu. Hard to find the 6 small shrimp hiding in an ocean of tasteless noodles. I don't think this was Louisiana Cajun, maybe southern Ohio at best. Flavourless and overpriced.

The management is so rude and seem like they don't care about customer service, and it took over 50 minutes to get breakfast served. 👎🏼👎🏼

The food here is very good and the service as well I would recommend this place for a couples night out. If you take the whole family you may be in for a shock when the bill comes.
