I'd give this a 1/2 star if possible. This was a terrible experience. Had dinner here before the Rose Theatre in Brampton. We were a group of 7 & one of our guests had an MSG intolerance. We told the wait staff & was told that "EVERYTHING that they serve has MSG in it"!! So we asked for something off menu..,. waitress said no problem but came to the table to say that the chef made a mistake &... more

Although I personally did not eat while here at this restaurant I experienced one of the worst customer service experiences in my LIFE! If it was possible to give negative starts I would.

The manager was the worst I have ever seen! Our friends found hair in their food and were told that, this sort of thing happens often, as if it was no big deal! Then she proceeded to yell at me because I... more

Not even close to being as bad as the other reviewer is making it out to be.

I had the chicken souvlaki dinner (Large, 15 bucks) and it came with all the fixings. Rice, potatoes, pita bread, tzatziki, salad, and grilled chicken.

It may not be on par with places like Astoria but Brampton has a severe shortage of Greek restaurants now, so I'm happy this is still here.

Took two stars away... more

Disappointed
April 30, 2014

It has been a few years since there for lunch. Not busy at all, hardly any tables taken. Now I know why. Food not the same, OVERSALTED moussaka, and a boring Greek salad.

Excellent Value, Beautifully Renovated
August 17, 2013

Excellent food starting with an superb greek salad. Warm pita is served instead of the usual boring dinner rolls. The Chicken Souvlaki is our favourite. If you want the best deal in town this is the place to come either for lunch or dinner. The portions are very generous and the quality of the food is excellent. This restaurant also... more

We don't go too often but when we do it is always a treat. Great Greek food and atmosphere. Staff can be a little more attentive, but still do a good job at making your dining fun.

Brampton's Greek Goddess is a little tired
June 17, 2013

The Symposion has been a Brampton institution for DECADES, and this old lady is definitely showing her age these days. Yes, you might visit on a weeknight and find you're the only customer(s) there ... or you might visit on a weekend and find it quite a bit busier. I have LOVED the moussaka here for years and years, and... more

Good food, nice atmosphere
February 04, 2013

Good, but not extraordinary, food. Nice atmosphere. We had the platter for two, which came with lamb, quail, pork, and vegetables. Various meats were very good. The veggies looked and tasted like frozen grocery store style. It would have made all the difference if they were freshly prepared. I would try the souvlaki the next time, if I go again.

Great expectations, left disappointed
January 18, 2013

My boyfriend and I have been to this restaurant on numerous occasions due to the good quality food and fair value. However, after our last visit, we will not be returning. The complimentary pita bread was served warm in a basket, but was accompanied by cafeteria style whipped butter in single serving packages. It was a sign that the restaurant... more

My wife and I decided to try some good Greek food for lunch. We called in the order and the person who answered the phone and took the order was very pleasant and courteous.

December 10, 2012

Friendly to family. Great prices. Fried eggplants + hummus was an excellent dish. Generous with pitas:). The cheese on the flame was good as always. Wish they had non Greek desserts such as regular popular cakes and crepes as Greek desserts are quite heavy in general.

Ewww!! Very mediocre food. Mediocre service. Mediocre atmosphere. Seemed like their potatoes were microwaved and salads were dunked in water to store. Nothing was good here. Not even the wine. Gross. Never coming back.

June 19, 2012

Good ambience. Love greek cuisine and I think this is very close to the authentic greek food. Would suggest the eggplant appetizer( forget the greek name) with hummus which can be a bit oily but well worth the calories. My kids fell in love with the chicken souvlaki

Many 'Opa's' for this one
May 24, 2012

This place is in an unassuming strip mall, and the carpets are a bit worn, but sit down and feast! The food is delicious, served scalding hot by friendly staff, and the portions are more than generous. Really nice find in Brampton.

Near the theatre

Walking distance to the Rose Theatre in Brampton. Let them know you're going to a show and they'll pick up the pace or else you'll be there for a while. Good food.

Okay Greek
December 08, 2011

note the best service, and the environment is hit and miss - sometimes too hot, somethimes, too cold, not always table cleared promptly - but the food is usually good. THe last couple times there, no Greek wait staff, so questions were met with stares

Friendly Service
June 15, 2011

We have been there several times and the food is good and service efficient and friendly.
The last time I paid cash and overpaid by at least $50 - the waitress returned it to me saying that I had already left a tip and she thought I have made an error. I had.

Very Accomodating
April 01, 2011

In November, I had my baby shower at Symposion. They were extremely accomodating with a great room to accomodate my 60 guests. The food was exceptional (especially considering that they made 60 meals at the same time) and the meals came out at the same time (no delay)- this was very impressive! The servers were excellent and did not rush... more

My husband and I visited Symposion for a night out and the food was delicious!! The portions were HUGE!

The restaurant was dated and likely has had... more

September 23, 2010

I have had good meals here in the past. Not sure what has changed but the quality has gone down hill. We left more than we ate. The appetizer combination plate was particularly annoying.

September 02, 2010

I've been going to this restaurant for 15 years and always enjoy the food. Love the souvlaki! I miss the zucchini they used to do for the appetizer, though, wish they would bring it back. I also would recommend they "refresh" the decor, it's a bit dated. And the service is unpredictable at times, but usually friendly. ALl in all,... more

Outside of decor this isn't a good greek restaurant at all
August 30, 2010

It pains me to say this, as I was very excited to go and try this Greek restaurant in Brampton. Avoid the chains of course and support the smaller, long term restaurants in the area. The Symposion was nothing but a true disappointment with regards to food and decor.
There is no shaved Gyro, but instead is processed strips of... more

August 25, 2009

Brampton is full of chain restaurants, so I try to go to local places instead but have been disappointed more than once by these. I went to Symposion with a friend last week for dinner and we both had the souvlaki platter. The salads were actually pretty good, but each had only one olive in it (I personally think there... more

I really like Symposium. Foods good, not badly priced. You can usually find a 2 for 1 coupon in the Guardian once a month. The restaurant is usually quiet when I have been there.
