Default Search for files with parenthesis in name

How do I search for files who's name contains a parenthesis? Entering
(2) gives me all files containing 2 (which are a couple of houndred,

parentheses have a special meaning when searching. Ive tried to use \ to
escape them but no luck.

What about enclosing the search in quotes, like "(2)"? Does that work?
