We chose this Symposium location for our annual Grandparents/Grandkids Christmas meal and we were not disappointed. Good food for a wide range of palates. Reasonably priced but the highlight of our meal was the care Nozwella, our server, provided. She really responded well to the...More

We have been going to Symposium in Hamilton every Wednesday night for the past 5 years. The food is fantastic and Cosmos are #1 here. The staff is always friendly and can't do enough for you. We recommend this restaurant to everyone. Cheers!

I joined friends for lunch there it was Friday so we all ordered fish and chips. The fish was greasy and the chips were frozen ones. We didnt complain but wouldn’t go back there again and wouldn’t recommend the place.

The restaurant was packed, people waiting to sit. Useless franchise owner paced while the staff rushed like crazy. We waited 45 minutes for our mediocre breakfast. We will NOT RETURN to this location.

I cannot wait to come to this location again. I have been to the Ancaster location before and it was okay at best. There was no long wait time despite it being very busy and the staff was very helpful and nice.

A tasty breakfast of 3 eggs, toast, potato, and bacon. Prepared as requested and quite tasty. Freshly squeezed orange juice was a pleasant treat. Quality coffee and specialty coffees were great. Great atmosphere that is certainly classier than most breakfast joints, though symposium serves lunch...More
