We arrived and checked in at the Front Desk at 6:00 PM and advised by the representative that I would receive a text at approximately 6:15 PM letting me know that our table was ready. This did not happen. I waited until the National Anthem was completed and then approached the Front Desk again and was asked the same questions that I answered when I initially checked in. The representative apologized and we were then brought to our table, they forgot about us. We were celebrating a birthday and thought we were being seated at a Window Table for two which also did not occur. Other Guests which checked in after us were seated before us occupied the Window Tables. Our Table was classified as a "View" Table. Our Server was Excellent! I let her know what transpired and also let her know that this was our 1st time having dinner at the Tiger Club. She apologized and brought us our 1st drink and let us know that it was on the house. She then explained the buffet to us. Again, our Server was Excellent and my wife and I had a great dinner because of her!!

Our table service for the salads was impeccable. The waiter, Antonio, is both an expert in all things cuisine, plus his humor was much appreciated after a long week of work. Bravo to The Caucus Room!

The staff from the manager Reza to our server Amanda bent over backwards to make us feel welcome. Our recent visit was only our second time, and Amanda remembered us, even remembering what table we had had. Everyone in our group liked their food, without exception. Our friends on this are restaurant mavens, and they are ready to make it a regular stop. The drinks are generous, and the room is attractive. It is also a very attractive and comfortable room. And the big surprise .... We live in the New Center area and took the Q-Line for our first visit to Symposia. At our table we were talking about the best way to walk back to Woodward, and Amanda told us their shuttle could take us home. We had a comfortable ride with a charming driver, Captain Thoney, and he dropped us at our door. He also told us that he would also be glad to pick us up for our next visit. So for our second time, we rode in style both ways. It probably wouldn't work if you live in West Bloomfield, but it was great for us. Symposia is going to become one of our regular stops.
