We've previously reviewed Symposium, but wanted to reiterate our positive review after a few subsequent visits. Highlights include the incredibly attentive service, the extensive winelist including several more unusual bottles (at least for Lima), and, of course, the amazing food.

I ran into this place after trying to get into 2 other restaurants, I'm so happy I found this hidden gem. This is fine dining so definitely focused on service, food quality and less on the fusion food trend. This place will go very far...More
