Service and Atmosphere is great. However, the food was a little bit salty. Food cost was a little over embellished for the quality and limited food options. For the limited Menu options and price it did not equate. Will I go again? Yes, for the Bar option Only.

Our waiter wasn’t very attentive. We had to ask to have our plates cleared and for new clean silverware. We had to ask multiple times for refills on drinks such as coffee and water. The food was great, ambiance was great. Just needed a better waiter.

We waited 1 hour and 30mins to finally get the food. The food was very bland and tasteless. From the time we sat down it took the waiter 30mins to even approach the table. The chicken taste bad, we had to send it back. They gave us sparkling water and we asked for still water. They also charge for water and did not tell us. The food is over priced. Ruth Chris and Del Frisco is so much better, try those places.

AMAZING! The manager and all the staff made my incredible evening the most memorable one I will take with me forever. We got engaged on the patio overlooking the harbor and it couldn't have been better. I can't explain how accommodating and helpful everyone was to make that special day perfect. Thank you all! Can't wait to come back at least every year for life to celebrate this great day.

We visited the Bygone for my birthday celebration. It was a surprise from my husband. The ambiance is very nice and the views are breathtaking. I really love the balconies and how you can see the water and/or the city. They also have a lovely fire bar area which is warm and very pretty. There appetizers are really good although you do not get much with each appetizer. The food was good as well but the portions are small. You are paying for the quality and not necessarily the quantity. The only thing that was a little disappointing was that there may have been a miscommunication between me and the gentleman that helped the server. They take your food back to pack it. Very upscale but I'm so used to packing my own food. They gentleman combined me and my husbands food. By the time it was time to eat it the juices or creme from the side was all over the main entree. I did not want it anymore. I would've loved to keep it separate like it was presented to us. Overall a great experience. I would go back, but for a special occasion because it is expensive.

Great food and beautiful views. Pricey so be prepared. Server was very nice and helpful with ordering but could have definitely been more attentive. Large periods of time without checking in. That said, the wine service and SOMM were excellent.

Good afternoon,

My wife and I were first time patrons and enjoyed our Sunday brunch. We did not have any issues with the food or our server. We did not like how the dress code was policed. We both dressed business casual for the meal. I wore slacks, shoes and a collared shirt, my wife wore a jumper. While eating, two parties arrived, were seated, and enjoyed their meal while wearing jeans, sneakers, and a tee shirt.

Per your strict dress code policy, these patrons should not have been seated due to their athletic wear.

Thank you and have a great day.

Not my first visit to Bygone. I thought I knew what to expect and was surprised - and not in a positive way. The restaurant is very attractive, you cannot beat the views (stunning!) and the service is consistently superior. The issue was the food. We order stuffed lobster and the stuffing was good enough for a family picnic - basic, bland, un-imaginative. Truly a waste of a nice lobster. The appetizers of scallops (there were only 2, small ones) was also un-eventful, but adequate. The carrot cake fell completely flat. None of this would matter much if Bygone was a mid-price, everyday venue. But it is not - it bills itself as one of the very top eateries in Baltimore and it charges as such. It was not a place worthy of its accolades, it cannot continue to rely on ‘cool’, great views, girls-night-out, special-date meal; the food must still stand out on its own! And finally, apply your dress code - awful to see some of the trash that walks in, if we wanted to be in such company we would have gone to the Fells Point market.

This place is a definite must. One area for improvement, however, is the way diners are handled upon arrival. I think the restaurant struggles to manage the guests who are not eating dinner. We arrived at 5 pm, but wanted to to have a cocktail at the bar first before our meal. We were told that we would be giving up our window table if we did that. It just put a damper on the rest of the evening, especially knowing that our bill for 2 was $500!

View, good, and drinks are stellar. We enjoyed some of the very best dishes from their menu, price was as expected for the overall experience. One startling concern was a runner brought the wrong glass of wine to our table which is not a big deal. However when our waiter arrived he picked it up and moved it to the correct table. I had not drank out of it but we are still dealing with covid. The wine should have been disposed in my opinion. It made it a little uncomfortable for a 5 star restaurant.
