Symposium is close to where I live, so I've eaten lunch there a few times. I usually don't eat pizza, but they also have some good salads. The times that I've been there, the service was good. Nice atmosphere, but still relaxed.

Serves some of the best pizza in town! Great place for an office gathering. However, I've found the service to be inconsistant -- ranging from very poor to excellent. Not especially child friendly.

Symposium has really delicious pizza but last time I went the service was very poor. We waited for an excessively long time for our food and then for our check and it was fairly expensive.

There really aren't any other Greek restaurants around Davis. This is where I first had Pasticcio...think a creamy mac 'n' cheese with ground beef. I fell in love this this dish that I had to try it home. Of course I had to find the most complicated recipe. I only made it once. Now whenever I go out for Greek, I compare the pasticcio with the one from the Symposium. Nothing ever lives up to it. I also loved the spinach pizza with 3 cheese. When I wasn't chowing on pasticcio...I was sharing this pizza with friends. The last time I dined here with my old roommate we enjoyed pizza and salads as we reminisced for hours. If you're looking for something different, give the Symposium a try. It's not downtown with all the other places...but nothing in Davis is "far". For goodness sake...take the Unitrans.

Pros: pasticcio...did I mention the pasticcio?

Cons: can get crowded

Symposium is one of the few greek restaurants I know that is still family owned, and not actually part of a chain. The food is great, the yoghurt is tangy, and the kebabs are hot and savory.

This is indeed "little-known" but it's a wonderful restaurant. The staff is exhuberantly friendly, with a very familial feeling. The food is delicious, and wonderful for anyone who loves Greek foods. For those unfamiliar with Greek foods, or those unsure of what to order, the sampler combos are a Godsend.

The atmosphere is very laid-back, and almost has the feel of a picnic. Highly recommended for when you've got a large group to entertain.
