Beautiful old hotel & restaurant - Each room was well decorated - molding in each room was outstanding . Service was outstanding. Food was great. Have recommended to many of my friends. Will definitely join you for some jazz in the bar.
We loved our experience and will definitely be back.
Lovely atmosphere. Great service and food. The brunch menu is a variety of dishes including vegetarian and the sides are both delicious and healthy. My side salad was large and full of great tasting fresh vegetables, greens, and herbs.
My sister and I enjoyed brunch. Very good food and very good service.
My go-to spot for a really good dinner before heading across the street to the symphony or down the street to the theater. Always, always have had a great meal. Staff is fantastic. Atmosphere is elegant and makes you feel like a grown-up out for a posh evening.
Excellent food. Great service. Comfortable setting. Great location for a pre-concert dinner.
We had a lovely evening dinner prior to a concert at Memorial Hall. Very convenient to valet park at the Symphony Hotel and just walk over to our concert afterwards. Buzz the bartender was also handling tables that night. very busy crowd and he did it with Flair! He knows the menu inside and out. my date had the branzino fish and it was excellent, with a very generous portion. I went with the crab cakes, nothing special but glad I tried them as they were advertised as all-white crabmeat. the salad was rather modest portion served on a small 6 inch plate. The experience was why we were there, the jazz music, the decor and ambience. We definitely will return for cocktails and try the menu again.
The atmosphere in this quaint boutique restaurant is lovely. And while the servers/staff were nice and friendly they only made it to two courses for pre-theatre dining (5:45 - 7:20). Seems like they should be a bit more efficient than that. The food was fine but not anything special
Everything was excellent with two exceptions. 1) the special rib eye was odd. It was very thin, maybe 3/8ths of an inch thick. I ordered mine medium rare which is impossible with that thin of a steak. 2) we asked for a ten minute rest period before dessert service. This was a mistake when the ten minutes turned into 25.
Other than those two complaints we thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
Dinner before a concert at Music Hall was perfect. The staff makes sure that your dinner is on time. Very convenient, have valet parking and the food is wonderful!
Elegant 5 course meals in classic setting next to music hall
This was my first experience at the Symphony. I truly enjoyed the food. The wait staff, food and the atmosphere was fantastic. We sat and enjoyed some Jazz after dinner and relaxed. I will defiantly be back.
The reservation system is difficult and trying to communicate with the facility was nearly impossible. To add a person to the reservation would cause me to lose the time. I requested a specific table but that did not occur. The location, ambiance and Ricky and Bekah did outweigh those hassles.
It was fantastic!
Outstanding food and service. This first visit won't be my last.
daughter & son in law were in town....my french toastwas not done enough....hope i remember next time to ask for it well done
Excellent service and delicious food for a decent price. Outstanding ambience
Great food and service. I’ve had better Creme brûlée but I did not go there for the desserts.
What a pleasant surprise. The perfect place to eat and relax before gong to the CSO. This place is more than worth it for the ambiance, the history, and how it has been set up. We will be back and soon.
The food is phenomenal, service is usually impeccable. Tables are a bit crowded together, so it lacks a little in privacy. Mismatched china and quirky decor, but memorable and unique atmosphere. Jazz nights there can be fantastic too. Small, cozy space. Cool little sitting room in back. Again, the several meals I had were superb, and reasonably priced for the quality. Higly recommend!
We arrived after the kitchen had closed- but since the chef was still around they offered to make us the 5 course meal if we so chose. We ended up only getting dessert so that we were able to spend more time talking rather than eating. Our waiter, Buz was outstanding and made sure to reiterate that they could still make us food if we wanted. We really appreciated the understanding and he made us feel special- even if it was just for a short while. We are already planning another dinner date. Hopefully a little earlier in the night!
My fiancé and I went to dinner on Valentine's Day. The service in the main dining room was horrendous. After approximately 40 minutes we received water and no drinks or soups. Other tables around us either got up and left or were complaining about the wait. The wait staff was totally overwhelmed despite the set menu. I have never gotten up and left a restaurant before due to poor service or provided a review on-line. It was so disappointing, because I had heard great things about Symphony. Unfortunately, I won't be returning to find out if this was an exception to the rule. Maybe on a regular evening the service/food is wonderful, but for the holiday it was an absolute zero.
My wife and I recently moved to the area and decided to try this restaurant to celebrate Valentine's Day. When we were were seated right next to the two piece band, I was concerned it would be too loud but the window location kept me hooked. Our energetic server was very informative about the prix fixe menu and brought our drinks as ordered promptly and not too weak as has become the norm at most restaurants. While the menu isn't deep, it appears each dish is well thought through, and the Chef added a few extra selections for the evening. For our 5 course meal, my wife ordered the butternut squash soup and I ordered a homemade chicken noodle, and both were excellent. I'm not a salad guy but I really enjoyed mine but my wife wasn't as impressed. I ordered the pan roasted hanger steak and my wife ordered the amish chicken. Both were excellent, juicy, and flavorful, and the side items and sauces were just as satisfying. The creme brûlée and the heart shaped double chocolate cake were a great ending to a special evening. The live music was a bit too loud because we were so close but we did enjoy the vibe and it added a romantic ambience to the room. We will definitely make a return visit.
My husband and I went for Valentines day. I know this is normally a busy day and it was. However, the service was really spotty. It seemed to be more inexperience than anything. For instance, we were offered bread and accepted but after visiting us three times for other stuff, we had to ask for it repeatedly. The high end cocktails were nothing special. The food was good but I had some issues later that night that was probably more about eating marinated red meat than anything they did but it made me wonder.
What we found interesting is that the wait staff seemed to indicate to other diners that the sliced Hanger Steak they were serving was part of a Ribeye...it's not. Hanger Steak is a tougher cut that usually requires it be marinated (which is probably why I had some stomach rumblings after dinner) to break down the tissue. A Ribeye is more marbled and flavorful. It wasn't clear if this was innocent ignorance or deliberate. I would hope it was simply ignorance. Let's give them the benefit of the doubt. The service was really slow and spotty and I think it was mostly because it was a busy night and perhaps our waiter was not that experienced.
The place is tight and they did seat us in a corner when asked if we could get a table that wasn't on top of our neighbor. What we missed out on though was the live jazz music in the bar area.
Our food was good and the portions were okay. However, the chocolate cake heart dessert was the highlight of the meal. Our bill was over $150 (including tip) for two 3 course meals from a limited menu and a couple drinks. This is fairly typical of what we spend but we normally enjoy it much more.
SO...if you go, sit in the bar area, drink beer or wine, avoid busy times, don't order the steak but DO get dessert and you should be fine.
I love this place. We only live a few blocks away, and I love the option of a quiet, romantic restaurant so close. I really appreciated the fact that I was able to avoid animal products when ordering off the five course menu. Had to make a couple of special requests but it was easy and the food was delicious, as always.
We had made reservations and were seated promptly but service was somewhat slow
Our waitress did not spend much time on explaining the menu
Although not recommended by the server, we asked for the three course. Food was good
Found out after we finished that we overheard another server tell a table about additional available deserts
The other irritating item is that the bartender was serving the adjoining table and he talked so long explaining how great everything including his skills were!
I was disappointed
Valentine's Day dinner was absolutely delicious and the service was excellent. The live music was soft enough to enjoy a great conversation, and yet enough to hear and appreciate. The musicians were friendly and perfect for the evening. Kudos to the chef, the management, hostess, and servers and live musicians. Food was hot, on-time and the best meal we have had for awhile. Romantic Valentine's Dinner. Thank you to to Hotel Symphony. We will definitely be back!
I've been wanting to eat at this restaurant for a long time. We were there for the Sunday Brunch which was excellent. The omelets and fruit were delicious and fresh. The room was very inviting, however, the tables are too close together. I would prefer fewer tables and have the other rooms available as well. But overall the food and dining experience is well worth a visit. We plan to return!
The tables are too close to each other with not enough space to get by, especially for large people. But every thing else was fabulous. I will definitely go back.
Food and brunch cocktails where great. Perfect place for before the ballet.
Had 5 course dinner. Wonderful entrees from which to choose. Food delicious, hot and proper amount. Wines selected to pair were great.
Went for dinner prior to a show at Music Hall in the next block. Interesting artwork in a restored old home provides a lovely setting. Nice bourbon list (although they were out of my favorite, Elmer T. Lee) so we started with a bourbon flight of four. We opted for the three course dinner as sides are included with the entree, and the wine list was very nice. The butternut squash soup was the best I've ever had. The steak dinner with brussel sprouts and au gratin potatoes was perfect, as was the salmon special with spinach risotto. For dessert the chocolate pot de creme and the creme brulee were both just right to finish off a lovely meal. The servers are attentive without being intrusive and are mindful that most patrons are on their way to a performance and pace their service accordingly.
Great ambiance and food. Love the history of the hotel.
Great Lil gem
We especially love this place for pre-symphony dinner. It would be hard to beat the meal or the wine list anyplace else, and what could be more convenient for a symphony-goer? Park once, have a great meal and then stroll a hundred yards to Music Hall. The setting is snug, but noise is at a civilized level. The young staff is friendly and hard-working. But be smart: book well in advance.
Our server, meal selections and preparation were amazing! One of our favorite places!
An outstanding Hotel and Restaurant everything included for as Jazz, comfort, eating, history, romantic setting all you can ask for throughout the day and night...A wonderful bunch in the morning and the Waitress were excellent. The food Tasty and it was very Quiet. The room was Fabulous, I loved it...The Chef outstanding food and management great experience....
Perfect pre-concert brunch. Excellent value, everything was delicious.
Just a fabulous restaurant with unique atmosphere. Five star service and inviting menu. The price is not unreasonable. This is a best kept secret!
We enjoyed our dinner at the Symphony Restaurant. We were there for my husband’s birthday and the restaurant staff made sure that we had the table we wanted near the band. The food is a great value. We had the 3 course dinners (prime rib and vegetarian options). Both main dishes were yummy and reasonably priced. We enjoyed a leisurely evening with great food, a nice bottle of wine, delicious desserts and fantastic live music. We appreciated Buzz and others on the restaurant team for their friendly and accommodating service!
We stayed overnight at the hotel which should have been the perfect choice. While the hotel is a good value and has beautiful rooms the hotel management was not gracious or friendly, which is a real shame. It’s a cool place and really could be spectacular.
