vibe: 4 | quality: 4 | service: 4 | selection: 3 | food: 3 | $$$$

Visited on Saturday night, August 7th, 2010 at about 10:00pm.

F.O.2 has a very different vibe form the original F.O. - better-looking (LOVE the bathroom sink area!), darker, more intimate and less full of annoying people. In fact, less full in general. Despite it being prime time for beer drinking, my friend and I got a bar seat within a couple of minutes of arriving.

The waitstaff was uniformly friendly and moderately attentive.

The draft beer selection was well-chosen, though there was a tendency towards lighter beer styles (hefes, wheats, witbier, summer ales, etc...). Regardless, I was able to enjoy an Old Rasputin and put down a not-so-great Alalskan White.

The food? Expensive and overrated. The Office Burger has devolved from its origin as one of the great hamburgers into a bloody mess whose flavors, once distinct and savory and unique, are now a goopy melange of meat and some kind of leafy vegetable and bun. The original Office burger was great and virtually unequaled; this one wasn't even one of the best hamburgers I've had this year.

So... if I had to pick a Father's Office in which to have a beer and some food, this one would win hands down over the pretentious, unbearable original location. That having been said, I would rather go to Lucky Devil's, Blue Palms, Tony's Darts Away, Third Stop, Verdugo, Lucky Baldwin's or The Daily Pint. Heck, I'd probably choose a Gordon Biersch over F.O. It's not a bad place, but the hype train left the station long ago and is running at high speed on the F.O. establishments.

God help us if they ever jump on the food truck bandwagon...

As I said in the last review, the same type of atmosphere. If you LLLOOOVVVEEE beer or wine like me, you need to be there. I am telling you. This place is one of those places where you feel exclusive and intimate at the same damn time. I love their burger and fries
