                                                  This was the best spinach dip I have ever had. My partner and I went to the Foggy Goggle a few days ago for a celebration and we haven’t been able to stop talking about it since. So creamy, so delicious. The warm crunchy pita really sealed the deal.

                                                  Great find in the mid-north end of Halifax. I was pleasantly surprised by the vegan options on the menu - more than usual, better quality, and clearly noted (as compared to a "normal" restaurant). Our server was exceptionally kind and friendly, compensating for an issue with my daughter's order by offering free popcorn and a drink. Ambiance was cozy, family friendly and pleasant with a "bar" feel. Overall we had a great experience.

                                                  Great spot, nice ambience and friendly staff. However, the food wasn't as good as I had remembered (was last there about a year ago). The menu is limited. I got the wings, which were very plain and not very tasty. My friend got the burger and loved it though!

                                                  First time trying this restaurant. Food was okay, not a lot of food for the price ( I had the steak bowl). My husband had the chicken sandwich. There was a comedy night happening upstairs it was a bit loud at times. The service was a quite slow waiting for food. But overall I would return.

                                                  AMAZING FOOD, great atmosphere, a little loud with the live music so not great if you want to sit down and talk but the live music is great! Highly recommend for a fun night out, you have to try the pork bao buns… absolutely to die for! Service was also great, very friendly staff.

                                                  The Goggle had been hyped to me so we went out for a family meal to commemorate a special event. Mistake! The restaurant's atmosphere was subpar, as was the overpriced food offered from a limited, unimaginative menu. Disappointed and left to have coffee and dessert at another restaurant.

                                                  Our server was very friendly and attentive, quick with drinks and food orders. I had requested a quiet table near a window, and they happily accommodated us. The vibe is great, we got there right before trivia night, so it was fairly slow paced, but we are looking forward to going back for trivia next time! My partner's food was what he expected - good old fashion bar food, but my dish was not good. We both appreciated the gluten free options on the menu. I had ordered the Thai Coconut Bowl upon the servers recommendation. The quinoa was flavourless and in a comically large portion compared to the veggies. There were maybe 2 pieces of zucchini. The flavours fell flat, no "green curry" flavour or spice anywhere, and serving a huge portion of cold hummus with a hot Thai dish was an interesting choice. It is a great spot with good drinks and ambience, but I'd recommend sticking to bar food classics.

                                                  Breakfast was nice. They've changed the menu since my last visit (years ago), and I did appreciate the more experimental menu of before, but things were great! Service was a delight, and the food was still very good. Ambience and noise were lovely.
