The service and view was very nice but the food was not good at all, I would not recommend anyone here. Way to expensive for the food to be the way is it.

The food was phenomenal. Best Halibut I’ve ever had. The city views were lovely. I was pleased with their Covid protocols. Everyone was spaced nicely. Masks were required and readily enforced for anyone walking around. Hand sanitizer was available at the entrance.

High quality drinks and food with a beautiful view of the city. It is pricey though so I recommend going for special occasions. Drinks are 17+ and I got an appetizer that was two scallops for $21. But the service is excellent!

My boyfriend and I came all the way from Miami, and chose to dine in at the Bygone for his birthday dinner. We were seated at a table close to the window, and then the hostess moved us elsewhere for a better view. He also received a handwritten birthday card from their front of the house team which was a special and unexpected touch!
Rachael took amazing care of us, and we had a lot in common! We started with the Gnocchi, and for our meal had a NY Strip, lamb and shared 2 sides (macaroni and cheese and mashed potatoes) and they were all amazing!
Finished off the evening with creme brûlée and it didn’t disappoint. She provided us with complimentary champagne for a toast and we loved every minute of our experience!

First time visiting The Bygone and I absolutely love this place! Their oysters are extremely fresh. The ambiance is absolutely spectacular. The over view of the Baltimore Harbor sets the the tone for a very romantic dinner or a special night out with friends and family. The service here is on point.

I was really surprised at how close the tables were and that each of the tables and booths were occupied with no gaps. It made me nervous the entire time. The food was spectacular, though, and the view of the city was phenomenal.

We had a bit of a trip and fall before arriving and staff were very accommodating bringing us a bag of ice to the table. We did desserts and drinks and everything was wonderful, food/drinks came out promptly, both were delicious, server was attentive but not overbearing, view was exceptional. All staff wore masks and tables were spaced apart or closed for social distancing.

I have been to the Bygone a few times. My most recent experience was underwhelming. I expected more of a fine dining experience. The music selection was a bit loud and didn’t fit with the ambiance.
The food was not nearly as good as it’s been in the past. This may be a result of covid and limited menus. But last time I had done (about 18 months ago) I thought the options were greater with better presentation. This time it was just an average selection and presentation for a nicer restaurant.
Our server was pretty good. But he seemed to disappear for a solid 30-40 min between dinner and asking us if we were done or wanted dessert.

I also felt that given covid they got a little too close for comfort. Reaching over patrons etc to give flatware, serve the food.

Social distancing seemingly was there. The restaurant wasn’t full by any means but we did go on a Wednesday. They also seemed to keep tables apart but again it wasn’t full so I don’t know how it would be on a higher volume night.

I don’t know that the price of food is worth the experience. Overall experience was ok but nothing to go out of my way to return.

Dinner was amazing. It was our first experience at the Bygone and I would most definitely recommend it to anyone out for dinner on a special occasion. My wife was very pleased with her steak and i was as well with my crab cakes. Our waitress, Rachel was amazing. Very knowledgeable about the menu, pleasant to talk to, made great recommendations and checked in on us occasionally to make sure our dining experience was up to par. We enjoyed her so much, my wife wanted her as a friend. Thanks so much!

Location and service were good. Food was average and disappointing at this price point. Worst lobster ever tasted like tomato soup with meat in it. The view is about the only thing this place as going for it. Major disappointment
