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.

It's a nice place, great views, but food and drinks are over priced and it can get loud for dining.

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.

Definitely will recommend The Bygone. Celebrating both myself and my husband birthday on 01/01/22, and they gave us the perfect vibe. The atmosphere, food, service and drinks was great. The late night cocktail after dinner with DJ at the bar/lounge across from the restaurant helped us finish out our night in the new year!

Bad news on every front. It didn't help that a thick sea fog obscured the view. That wasn't Bygone's fault. Just about everything else was, though.

Info on where to pay for valet parking not made clear. Many hotel staff were rude on our arrival. I had to ask three times to get this information.

Dinner. Very expensive food with no flair. One decent and one poor glass of red wine. My date & I were asked several times if the food (or everything) was "delicious". That's inappropriate.

"Ambiance" was so dark we couldn't read the menu without a flashlight or cell phone. Hmmm, significant illumination issues here. Now don't get me wrong - I like dark and mysterious for a sexy dinner date.

I could barely hear my lovely date because the table was so wide, and noise from other diners masked her words. Most $$$ and $$$$ Bawlmer long-lived restos (Tapas Teatro, Sotto Sopra, La Cuchara, Petit Louis...) have this simple acoustic physics issue fully resolved. Bygone are still tapping the mike and adjusting reverb.

Tagliatelle (same Atlas group as Bygone) have food, wine, and ambiance nailed - I don't resent their high tab. I grudged every cent I spent at Bygone. Ouzo Bay (also Atlas) also left Bygone at the post.

The Bygone restaurant and the Four Seasons hotel think they are the best, so don't need to try.

Begone, Bygone! Sayonara, sucker!

Tables could have a little better spacing , also menu needs more sides /compliments. Food came quick and was good just wish I had more things to order with entree.

This is definitely the most beautiful view in the entire city. The restaurant is decorated very cool the lighting is perfect and everyone that works there is wonderful. I would say that their cocktails are superb. The food however was slightly disappointing, for example, the short rib my husband ordered didn’t fall apart it had to be sawed through with a knife and the salmon used in the ceviche tasted like it was farmed and fishy not fresh or wild which was disappointing. I would definitely come here again and try more food items.

Nite lighting makes reading menu a real task. No specials. No table salt and pepper.
Some form of awful music playing in restaurant side, or blowing in from bar/lobby. Major salt on bread; AND no birthday oriented 'extra' promised when reservation made by voice contact. Food not as enticing as remembered from past visits.
