Because he is using all the charity work as write offs at his place. He makes enough of you when you eat there. He doesn't need to advertise. Keep leaving still hungry, and he will be very happy.

As they say, there is no such thing as bad press. Whether you are in the police blotter, topping the sports page or being roasted at a charity event, your name in the news is just that. Symeon's face and name everywhere he can land it is just like the Enea's down here in the valley. Advertising - and in most instances it's free.

Everytime I eat there, my poop goes all to hell. As much as I try, I can't put all back together again.

the family, Dad, Mom (now deceased) and son, have carried on the tradition of always giving back to the community. Hard working, successful people that do well around here are always a target by jealous, petty, and usually uncreative residents of our area. Still packing them in after all those years too...and in this "foodie" town, kudos to them. Great family.

So sad. No wonder this Country is in the shape it is in. People can not even understand the concept of charity. Christian Country? Yeah right.

Whenever I eat at Symeon's I come home stuffed and bloated feeling like I'm going to explode because they put so much salt in their food. After the bloating wears off, I'm hungry again.
And nobody ever taught the cooks at Symeon's that the salad dressing is supposed to go NEXT to the salad in a little cup so the eater can pour on as much or as little as they like. Whenever I order a salad at that place, I get a few pieces of lettuce floating in a bowl of dressing.
How typical of a Utica eatery: they figure their patrons care next to nothing about their arteries or their waist sizes.
They also seat their guests too quickly. When I go there they are usually still clearing the table from the previous party as we are being herded to our seats. I like to sit in a chair that isn't still emanating heat from somebody's fat a** when I go out to eat, but I guess I don't have that luxury at Utica's finest Greek restaurant.
Still, Symeon's is one of the only places in the Utica/Rome metro area that has a half-decent atmosphere and menu. That must be why it is so popular.

Symeon is a wonderful host as was his Dad. The food at the restaurant is great. Leave him alone. Hard work got them a fantastic reputation. Maybe you should try it instead of hiding behind a computer and slamming people.

I liked the father but not junior as his agenda is himself first.He wants to be a spokesman for everyone as he likes the camera.
