I really enjoyed my first Bygone experience. The staff was excellent. The food was delicious, but they were out of duck and lamb and apple cake. Both of which I wanted to try!

Meal was very subpar for the price of a pre fixed menu. Received 1/2 of a lobster tail. Not enough food for the price. I was highly disappointed

I think this is a really nice place. The ambiance and service was amazing. I don’t really like pre fixed menus but I understand that this is what happens on special occasions. I think the food was just ok. I would come back to try the full menu

We were not informed about the 1 hour time limit until we got there, nor told that there was a shortened menu. The ambiance was nice but I would have made reservations somewhere else- we were rushed out, couldn’t even get an after dinner cup of coffee.

Had a fantastic Valentine's dinner. Menu recommendations were great, food was so tasty, and the service couldn't have been better. It was expensive, but worth it. Will definitely be coming back for more special occasions.

This was a Valentine’s Day dinner. The servers were attentive and our waitress Stephanie was very personable. All the hostesses and the manager were friendly and welcoming. I felt the prix fixe menu was overpriced for the food we received but it was expected and tolerated for the occasion. Their bread was the best I’ve ever eaten! I would recommend this restaurant for special occasions but be prepared to pay more than what’s average for a normal dinner outing. (My husband and I tend to average $80-$100 for our dinners out.)

We made a reservation at 2pm. Unknown to us, 2pm is when the kitchen closes for brunch. Brunch was the only meal served. We were rushed to the table and were told to rush to order, due to the kitchen closing at 2pm. (So why make a 2pm spot available for brunch???? )

The food was greasy and average in taste. Bygone ... please eliminate your 2pm brunch reservation.

The Bygone has one of our fav's..always great views & ambience. The Valentine's Day experience was not the best tbh..The temperature was pretty cold.. it was so chilly I kept my coat on through the entire meal.. Cocktails were good..Scallops were excellent..Tartar not the best..Didn't love the Lobster and the portions were miniscule. I couldn't believe the tiny little dessert tart had to be shared. I know times are tough, but the portions were ridiculously small. Will not rush back.

The view/atmosphere is the best part of the restaurant. I’m not sure if it was because we were limited to the Valentine’s Day menu but I felt the meal was extremely overpriced and the portions were small. Certainly wasn’t worth $100 per plate and none of the wine was available by the bottle. That makes for an even more expensive drink bill. The food was pretty good but I’m not sure I would go back because of the cost.

Servers were very friendly. Service was rushed. Check was put on the table before forks were put to our food. Drinks came out with the food. Overall I felt like I paid way too much for what I was anticipating to be a much better experience. Sadly I probably won’t return despite being a local.

I was told about this place by my cousin as I was looking for a perfect date place and wow the Bygone really delivered. Not only was the staff very polite but the views!!! The food was great and so was the presentation of each meal. I would love to go back during the day and of course during the summer to be able to sit on the outside deck area. If you are looking for a place for that special someone, and have a killer view then the Bygone is where you want to go!

The view was amazing. The food was for the most part reasonably priced with large entree portions. Our server, Neil D, was outstanding. He was very personable and knowledgeable. I will absolutely be returning. The only downside was due to current restrictions we could only stay for an hour. For two people, our bill was $235, most likely would have doubled if we ordered a bottle of wine.

We always planned to come here when we finished med school and today was that day. Thankful that they were able to be open safely and we could enjoy the hospitality and exquisite menu. Pricey? Absolutely. Worth it? Absolutely. You always make good memories here and tonight was no exception.

Can’t say enough about the atmosphere and our service. The staff was super friendly and helpful. Trying to eat under the 1 hour timeframe that Baltimore requires was quite the challenge and it made for a bit of a bummer, but that is not the restaurant’s fault.

Our waiter was great, as was the rest of the service. Our appetizers of the Hamachi Crudo, Lobster Bisque, and Winter Salad were all outstanding! We both had steaks for dinner - my wife had the filet and I had the aged strip. The only thing we both would have done differently was order our steaks rare next time. Medium Rare was a bit tough, and we asked what the right temperature was ideal. For $70 a steak we’ve had better cuts of meat.

We will definitely come back, once the dining length is removed as it did feel very hurried and we couldn’t have dessert.

The waiter Anil was by far the best waiter I have had at a fine dining establishment in over 5 years he was very attentive professional had great recommendations and excellent insight into the different course selections and wine pairings and even offered some light and invited conversation. I will definitely be returning to this establishment at a later date.

The best part about Bygone is far and away the view. The service was great, but I was not blown away by the entrees that my fiancé and I had there. The appetizer, side, and desserts were pretty good though!
