Mediterranean
Symposia is a Mediterranean-inspired fine dining restaurant, located within the Atheneum Suite Hotel, minutes away from all major concert and event venues. We offer complimentary valet parking for dinner guests and a shuttle to major events.

Symposia highlights the Mediterranean region inspired by Greece, Italy, Spain and more. Signature dishes include Roasted Beet with whipped feta, pickled strawberry, green harissa; Spanish octopus with Romesco, Yukon potato, and Chorizo Iberico; Australian Lamb Chop; Amish Half Bird, with harissa, crème fraiche and an olive oil cake with pistachio, orange, honey-whipped Greek yogurt.

The space evokes a Mediterranean landscape with pops of white and sea blue alongside materials like stone and wood. Symposiums of ancient times were used as a space to gather, drink, and dine in celebration. In that same spirit, Symposia provides a welcoming atmosphere for family and friends to gather while savoring our unique cuisine.

    4 people in our group; everyone enjoyed their dinner. The beef vol au vent and the scallops and the short ribs were all delicious. The service was attentive without being intrusive. And, there was no pulsing, booming "music." We could actually talk to each other!

    Everything was amazing! Sally the waitress was absolutely fantastic she really took good care of us, chef Deron made us prime ribeye and filet mignon, it was perfectly crisp on the outside and melt in your mouth like butter on the inside (it was so good!), and the manager made sure everything went well. Thank you all for such a wonderful experience we’ll definitely be back, my boyfriend really enjoyed his birthday! Thanks again! 😃

    The food and service was top tier! Sooo good! I ordered the short rib and my fiancé ordered the branzino. Both were immaculate. The decor was beautiful and our server was funny, welcoming, and attentive. We went around 6pm on a Sunday and we were the only ones in the restaurant. No clue why this place isn’t packed. It truly is a gem.

    Really nice wait staff, very friendly and helpful. The appetizers were excellent. The main course was good, but our Filet was very well done and took forever to get corrected. The second one was so good and perfect, but the rest of the table was long done eating. They did not do anything to make up for it either, which I found very strange. Our waiter was replaced half way through service was quite odd, they had just opened for the night. I would try it again because of the appetizers alone!!!
