"My wife ordered the salmon and commented that her selection was good. I ordered the white fish almondine and the fish was okay but the garlic potatoes was cold. My wife ordered an espresso for after dinner and said it was also cold.
The waitress was prompt and knowledgeable
Not sure if we'll try it again

"We had excellent service and good time at our dinner with extended family for special occasion. Food was good. I would give 5 stars as everyone liked their food except one person had steak which was hard to chew. Good kids menu, food was ready fast enough, no sitting waitng."

"The food at Symphony's is consistently good, but our recent dinner there was extra special. The menu had many interesting and unusual dishes on it, and the food is very high quality. Beautiful presentation and excellent service. I always get their butternut squash ravioli, which is the best I've had anywhere. Husband had lamb shanks in a cherry sauce (I'm not doing it justice) with asparagus, and they were fabulous."

"We had a very nice dinner Saturday night. It is not a fancy place but a very basic atmosphere. The interesting and well prepared food is a surprise in this plane looking place. Parking has always been an issue there since it is only street parking in a crowded residential neighborhood. We told the waiter we had to be done in an hour and he managed to get it all done including the bill paid in an hour. My friend had the salmon wellington and loved it. I had pork chops with a cherry sauce. It was very good. The entrees were served with a nice side salad, asparagus and potatoes. We didn't have time for dessert and coffee, but that was OK. We made it to the theater on time. This is a great place to go to before going to the shows at Northwestern University as well as anything in the Evanston area.This restaurant is a dependable place and we will return next time we are in Evanston."

"We have been going to Symphony's Cafe for the past couple of years, mainly prior to attending music performances at Northwestern University. The staff is always friendly and the food is good. Prices are moderate. On our most recent visit we were seated in the dining area next to the bar. We found that to be noisier than we would have preferred. It is not a deal-breaker, but next time we will ask to seated in the larger dining room, where on our previous visits we found to be less energetic."

"Service was very good despite it being quite busy. The menu choices were interesting and I had a hard time making a choice. Lamb chops were good and lobster risotto was excellent. Chocolate mousse cake was a perfect finish. I could eat that all day."

"This was first bad experience we've ever had here and we've visited over ten times. While every place has a bad day, in this case food came out cold from kitchen and they did't really fix my wife's entree after taking it back twice, the real issue was the attitude of the owner. When I commented that the kitchen was having issues he nodded his head but there was no interest in understanding what the issue was or accountability to the situation. We've brought numerous friends here in the past but with the attitude we experienced we'll take our business elsewhere"

"... stopped here last minute on a Sat night - simple place - kind of a cafe that became a restaurant - very good food, solid attentive service. Not overwrought. A good choice. Not sure they have full bar service but wine was ok for us."

"We live in the area and go here all the time during the week (we prefer to stay home on weekends, avoiding the crowds). We like the menu here and the food preparation is consistently good, especially in consideration of the price point. Our service was excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Our out-of-town guest were very happy with everything."
