We went to 2Fogs with another couple on a very busy night. We were able to get a table after a very short wait, and loved the atmosphere. The food was very very good, and the drinks were as well. Service......let me just say, they were all more than attentive and pleasant! Appetizer eggs were terrific, and all the dishes at the table were top notch. The owners and staff have worked really hard to make the establishment a truly wonderful place to come to. We have recommended 2Fogs to many people and have received such positive feedback from everyone. Keep up the good work!

2Fog's definitely has character...there's no doubt about that! Located in the basement of a building, only accessible from the rear alley, the stay is very much worth it once you find it! Brickwork abounds throughout the place, and the décor is very tastefully done.

The beer and whisky menu is fantastic. It's worth going there for that alone. I was very pleasantly surprised about the food. The quality and taste was excellent. I had a grilled salmon dinner with rice and sautéed green beans (which had a light lemon flavor to them), and ate every last bit. It was excellent.

Our server was very efficient and friendly.

Overall, a great place, and well worth returning to.

The pulled pork on ciabatta was excellent. The mac N cheese is made with a smoky cheese sauce that was very very good. The pasta Bolognese was very hearty, especially with the meatballs. Love the downstairs atmosphere. Definitely will be back.

I have been a customer at 2Fog's since it opened and can say that its evolution from speakeasy-style pub to high-end eatery has been astounding. While the food and drinks have always been good, the opening of the new kitchen now allows for a wider variety of eats that appeal to all tastes and budgets. The same can be said of the beers and cocktails. The options are vast, ranging from beverages that can be found in any bar or restaurant with names that easily roll off the tongue when ordering within your average comfort zone, to hard-to-find alcoholic beverages for a unique tasting experience and exclusive, beyond top-shelf drinks for special occasions or for those with highly refined tastes. This is one of the few places I know where a customer can order a draft beer and a glass of $500 port at the same time. 2Fog's clearly strives to offer an exclusive, yet comfortable dining experience that is appropriate for any occasion: family dining, girls’/guys’ night, romantic meals, and business entertaining (I don’t ever do any of the latter, but with the exclusive liquors offered, this is definitely a place that impresses!). The owners are highly visible to the customers and pride themselves in addressing compliments/criticisms personally. The food itself is top-notch. The portions are not over-sized (this is not your neighborhood Applebee’s, don’t expect those type of proportions and prices) but are filling, and while I clearly have my favourites, I have yet to be disappointed in anything I have ordered. Though I miss the days of the cozy sofas and the Sunday Bloody Mary bar, I am thrilled to see that this place has been thriving enough to necessitate an expansion and the replacing of sofas with more tables. Just a couple tips: 1. This is not your average dive. Don’t come here expecting to get dollar PBR’s. It is upscale dining, drinking, and service, expect to pay for that. 2. If you are planning to come on a weekend evening and have a large party, try calling ahead. The wait can be a bit lengthy during peak times- the staff understand that this is not always enjoyable for customers and are happy to try to make you more comfortable, including taking cocktail orders while you wait. 3. If there is a parfait desert with some sort of liquor on it available, save room and get it. I guarantee it will be worth it. The bread pudding is pretty fab too!
