Our waiter was excellent, very attentive knew the menu Back to Front knew the daily specials Back to Front, suggested alcohol pairings with our dinner choice and just great overall.

The only suggestion I have to make is, it is so dark it’s even hard to see the menu. Turn the lights up just a couple of notches.

I had a fantastic time at the Bygone. The food was exceptional, and the waitress-Rachel- was stellar. Such an enjoyable experience, and a great way to celebrate my birthday!

Pros:

•We had a 9:15 reservation and we were seated accordingly, no complaints there.

•The parking was very easy, there is a garage underneath as the restaurant is in the four seasons hotel. We were in parking garage one and it was pretty easy to access the restaurant from the elevator. We paid $10 for parking from 9:15 to about 11 and there is also valet.

• The building is beautiful.

• The view is beautiful.

• The server explained the meticulous detail the chef put into the meals.

• The food seemed fresh every time and seasoned well.

Cons:

• The bathrooms were not kept up at all (this was probably the one thing that really turned me off about the restaurant).

•They have a lot of attendants but unless you get their attention they’re not really looking up. It’s not to say the service wasn’t great once you got their attention.

•Based on the menu that we were given for the desserts it didn’t seem that they were any “nut free” desserts for those of us with allergies.

• The bar area was extremely packed and no one had a mask on (obviously this usually wouldn’t be an issue but considering the times we are in).

All in all, I would definitely come back and it would be a great experience for many people. I have recommended this restaurant to a few people already. I really hope you guys work on the bathroom issue!

Service was excellent. I can't stress that enough. And it is a great venue with an amazing view of Baltimore. But for the price, the food was underwhelming. The ceviche was some of the best I have had, but the rest (short ribs, mushrooms, oysters, branzino) was not what I expected for the price. I definitely recommend visiting Bygone for a drink or two and to check out the view, but I think there are better places if you are looking for fine dining.

Great views, nice wibe, excellent service, however, food itself for the level of the restaurant is very average. My lobster was to laugh at, meatball way overcooked, just seems all the food was premade and very commercial.

With prices this high, everything should be perfect. Warm oysters (a big NO), very slow service & lack of a vegan go an option (even when we called ahead & were assured there would be one) made for a disappointing evening.

Enjoyed the Signature Prime Rib, Dry-Aged NY strip, and the Wagyu meatball. The ambiance is sexy/dark, but I had trouble reading the menu, our waiter Matt offered me the new bygone flashlight.

I went for my spouses birthday . Me and our 5 year old. It was a very beautiful setting. Very nice server. But I will tell you. The price for what you got is not worth it. The food is not worth the price. The steak had bland flavor and it was not worth 80 bucks. All together with oysters and 2 drinks each and 2 dinner entrees with one desert we spent 400.00. I was like wow. That’s way too much to pay for just a view. It would be nice to have the chef add more flavor in all the dinners. The salmon was even bland. The sides were okay. It’s just not worth 400 for a dinner.

Beautiful location with a excellent view of the Inner Harbor and around Baltimore. Not a lot of places have a 29th floor unobstructed view. Although the food is expensive it is great as well.

I was very pleased with the overall experience at the Bygone. My server was extremely knowledgeable!
The ambience was amazing .. and the it was really nice to hearing the music from the DJ (which is located on the opposite end of the of dining room). The outside is set up spectacular. Food was spot on (I am a foodie and well traveled). Started with half a dozen east coast oysters, followed by a Caesar salad (split with my husband) and had Branzino, Mac n cheese and assorted veggies. Everything was SPOT on! For dessert I had carrot cake. It was my only disappointment:0( The cake is NOT a traditional carrot it. The servers should let patron know it’s more a “deconstructed”’carrot cake the size of your thumb 😳.. it was edible, but not impressed. I definitely will dine there again. You will be spending about $200 for 2ppl FYI.

I’ve been to many high end restaurants and the food wasn’t worth the price. If you want an interesting view and decent service, this is the place to go. If you want the food and the price to match the service and view, go someplace else.

I have dined at Bygone many times. . The table lighting is neither adequate to read the menu nor adequate to see dangerous bones in a whole grilled Bronzino. The staff should speak enough English to understand simple questions and to execute simple requests. At Bygone's price point you should receive the best possible restaurant experience, but you don't.

First time here to bring in the New Year with friends. It was everything we wanted to experience, overlooking the Harbor and enjoying a 5 start meal and cocktails. The General Manager (Shar, I believe her name was) came by to check on us periodically and was such a delight. We definitely hope to make ByGone a regular spot for us to enjoy in the city. By the time dinner ended, the music was going at the other end of the bar area--very nice, working professionals, trendy and still classy vibe.

Went for Sunday Brunch, it's 70 per person but it felt worth it. Ambiance is the main draw, but the prime rib carving station and oysters were definitely a hit with us. Nor to mention there was barely any one there so we weren't worried about buffet lines or anything. Great time and great views, would definitely go back again for a special occasion.
