Overall I had a great time at Bygone. The drinks were well made and the ambiance was everything. The views are phenomenal too, it definitely gives New York vibes. However, as a native New Yorker I felt that the prices were ridiculous. Since when does a single Crab cake and splash of coleslaw cost $48??? And that was an entree...the scallops appetizer came with two scallops and cost $24. Granted the food tasted amazing, it just wasn't worth the price tag. I would have given this place 5 stars if it weren't for their ridiculous pricing practices.

I came here for my 32nd birthday dinner. I had a party of 6ppl. We had a 845pm reservation. We were not seated until 1015pm. We were given appetizers and champagne after an hour of waiting. Throughout the night we were reminded that it was $100 worth of appetizers. It took 40mins for our drinks to come out and then an hour for food. The manager ended up covering my birthday dinner and sent out 2 servings of the 3 desserts for the table, which I do appreciate. I love the ambience of this restaurant. For food my party found the crabcakes to be the best thing on the menu. I would not recommend this restaurant parties over 4ppl. Bygone needs to have time constraints of 90mins or 2hrs. If no one needs the table fine. But to wait so long for a reservation (not a walk-in) is unacceptable. Please do something about this wait time. My party had no problem spending money for dinner and would have preferred that our reservation time was kept.

First time dining at the establishment. We came for the view and we were breathless once we arrived. Service and ambiance were great. The Dj was awesome and played a mix of music. The food was ok not the best I’ve had but it was manageable. The portion sizes are little if you are someone who like to eat, but then again it’s portioned just right for one serving.

We went to The Bygone for our 10 year wedding anniversary. Everything about the evening was wonderful. Top notch service all the way and the food was amazing. We had scallops, wedge salad and butternut squash soup as starters. Lamb chops and prime rib for entrees. Beverly thing down to the sides (Mac and cheese and wild mushrooms) was absolutely delicious. And the views overlooking the entire inner harbor —none better in the city.

This place was fantastic. I mentioned that it was an anniversary dinner when I reserved the table and everyone that spoke to us wished us happy anniversary. I thought it was a thoughtful touch. The food was amazing. The view was superb. I can’t wait to come again.

We came in for my sisters birthday there was a sweet birthday card on the table however it had the wrong name on it. Maybe it would would be helpful to request the name of the person whom is having a birthday. Alex was ver on top of everything and was helpful with the wine list. Unfortunately our food was not up to expectations. I got the lobster and the filling with crab was undercooked and cold in the middle. My sisters Steak was over cooked and the clams casino was literally hard. The things we sent back were taken off the bill. Thank you for that. Over all the ambiance and wait staff was great. Food was just not. Loved the bartenders all well.

After much deliberation and looking at the menu online (for non-meat options) decided to go to Bygone for a special occasion. When we arrived the menu was so different then what was online. There were zero vegetarian appetizers and zero vegetarian entrees which differed from the menu online. We were forced to go dine else where. The view was amazing and wait staff friendly. Would encourage menu to be more inclusive of dietary preferences. All restaurants of similar quality do, and it’s such an easy thing to do and people would pay for it because the ambience and view are worth it.

The service was amazing. I’ve gone to The Bygone for a couple of years and the upkeep of the place has gone down. The railings outside were dirty, the tile walls inside were as well. The food was still delicious and the service was amazing. Aside from that, still a nice place.

Dress code confusing. No sports attire, but shorts, sleeveless tee-shirt and flip-flops (all on the same person) was acceptable. Update or do away with dress code, paying too much for it to be an issue.
The staff and food was great. Beautiful view

The birthday girl asked for a passion fruit margarita, it came out in a cocktail glass and was very bitter. Ask for a regular Coke, it came out a Diet Coke and the waiter stated that the lines were crossed and brought her a regular Coke after that. Food was so so. Not the greatest experience I have had at the bygone.

Great experience and I have already told friends. I think you do need to enforce the dress code and address guest if they or their children are to loud. The Prime Rib that waitress suggested was the best and I will have that again. Now let's talk about the cocktails, mmmm maybe the bartender was having an off night but I did expect better. Overall, it was great and the staff was a perfect 10. Keep the good work and don't rest of your laurels because you are starting to get mixed reviews; I wouldn't the general public to miss such a unique experience.

Took my husband there for his birthday. We were disappointed. The scenery was great and the food taste good but the selection is minimum. I ordered the lamb which was amazing but they has no vegetables or starches for us to order with it. I asked the waiter but he act as if he didn't understand me. To overpriced and not the best service. 😕 DISAPPOINTED 😞

Sorry but 15 dollars for potatoes...pleaseee. The table was so dark I could barely see my meal, and my girl's drink tasted like Nyquil. The waiter drowned our plates with olive oil and no herbs...NOT impressed.

GOOD notes...food was SUPER fast. Service was nice.

Food received a 4 because how did y’all run out of broccoli? The broccoli was so good we wanted more , also the prime rib had a lot of fat around it, overall the atmosphere, the scenery, the view, & the servers were bomb, i will be returning
