    Saturday night dinner experience was decent. Food was good but not great as one would expect for the expense. Cocktails were fantastic. Took 20 minutes to be seated after arriving on time for reservation. The ambiance and views are always great. Our waiter seemed a bit rushed and more attentive to another party.

    I had high hopes for Bygone. This was my first visit. It was highly recommended. Food was good. Not exceptional. Just good. Enjoyed the meal we had the octopus and foie gras appetizers. For the main entrée we had the duck and crab cake. Disappointing level of service. Our waitress nice, enthusiastic, very pleasant. She was trying to deliver a great service. No complaints there. But she lacked familiar with the cocktail or food menu. Instead of saying, she didn’t know or unsure, and ‘I’ll get back with an answer’. She instead made up ridiculous explanations, which were obviously wrong. It happened several times which was frustrating. I assume she was new and needed more training. At Bygone’s price point, I expect better execution.

    There was a table that was extremely loud, yelling and way overboard (I think they were drunk). I think someone should have asked them (politely) to lower the noise volume. It was extremely disturbing.

    A beautiful place. Checkin was slow. Finally had a 2nd person help seat people. We self parked in the garage and not valet the car. We did not know that if we valet the car, parking would of been complimentary. I wish it mentioned that somewhere in our reservations. The music was loud but tolerable. However the music played contained profanity. For an establishment as this, I expected a different genre of music especially during Sunday brunch.

    The visit starts the moment you enter that elevator and ride straight up to the 29th floor. Your mind is curious and excited all at the same time. Then the elevator door opens and you are greeted with a spectacular view of the harbor and Baltimore's skyline. Check in is simple and fast, you won’t be waiting at the this restaurant for anything. The moment you sit down at your table. Take that moment to soak it all in. You’ll forget about the outside word for the time that you are here. Everyone is on top of their game here. Your glasses will remain full and your food is quickly served, but that does not mean it was made in a rush. No, your food will be presented to you like a piece of art from a N.Y. Art show. Beautiful plaiting clearly thought out. And when you take a bite your mind will then be blown out of the water from flavor. Every ingredient was meant to be there. Every course is impressive and bursting with color and flavor. My server was always on top of our needs. But so are the helpers who keep a watchful eye on your empty plates or use for more water. I am about to run out of characters so I must bring this to an end. Our picks: New York Sour - Cocktail Bygone Buck - Cocktail Big Eye Tuna Tartare - Appetizer Rockfish Ceviche - Appetizer Crispy Spanish Octopus - Appetizer Koji aged Filet Mignon - Entree Crescent Farm’s Duck Breast - Entree

    Fun place with a decided roaring twenties vibe. Food was very good albeit pricey. The best thing about the place is the view and not all table have views of the inner harbor which are by far the best. Be sure to ask for one.

    We had a wonderful time at Bygone. We sat in the bar high top table which had wonderful views Our waitress Cannon (or Kannon) was adorable, helpful , pleasant and everything in between. We had the lamb chops , multiple bottles of wine and a tuna tartar and octopus appetizers. This is a pricy restaurant but well worth the experience. Enjoy

    Quite a treat to get such a panoramic view of the bay. Server was excellent. Food was very tasty and while it was much pricier than we pay for high end restaurant in knoxville where we live, we knew ahead of time that we were going to pay higher prices. Still worth it

    An overall wonderful experience for celebrating my lovers' birthday. The hand-written card was an extremely thoughtful touch, and the complementary birthday dessert was adorable. The highlights were the food and the drinks, which were utterly delicious, fresh, and unique, the views that accompanied dinner and the warm low-light atmosphere of the dining rooms. The only thing that caused me to leave a 4 star review was the amount of time in total it took to complete the dinner - nearly 2 and a half hours from the time we sat down until the time we left, mostly spent waiting for our wait staff to return to take our order, come back with drinks, etc, despite not seemingly like too busy of an evening. All and all, a fabulous evening.

    Went to celebrate my sister's birthday. The food was NOT great. The 45-day dry aged New York strip was the worst. Had to send it back. The oysters were not shucked well at all. The mushrooms were not cooked well. For as expensive as this place is, the food should be better. Very disappointed. Bright spot was the truffle chicken, which was delicious, and we got to see Billy Dee Williams, who was seated near us.

    The view is unparalleled in Baltimore. The decor and ambiance are fantastic. The food is very good. Prime rib delicious, fois gras amazing, and the mushroom side the best we’ve ever had (crispy and tender and flavorful). The short rib was good but the sauce was a bit thick and sweet. The broccoli side was overcooked to mush. Service was nice but self important and stiff. Felt like they had a way to do things and they were gonna do it that way whether it made sense or not. Eg, brought in own bottle of wine. Asked for it to be opened. Then 15 minutes went by and appetizer served and still no wine?! Had finished cocktail 10 mins prior. I had to ask person serving the apps to fetch waiter to open the wine. Another 5 mins. As if he was timing to serve it at main course when we discussed giving it time to breathe. Wasn’t because he was too busy. Watched him stand by station checking his watch multiple times.

    The food was excellent. The presentation was top notch and was very rich. I reccomend going for the food. Be careful with service expectations. It starts out great, but towards the end the shift focus to others (new arrivals) and leave you stranded with no assistance. Sat for 1 hour with nobody asking if we needed anything after we finished our food. Had to wait 1.5 hours to pay the bill. Was told the system was down but coincidentally it worked again immediately when I raised frustration. Waiters and waitresses seemed too busy to keep up. But anyways, the food was great and environment and views are best in baltimore.

    Service and ambience were great! The food was good but for the amount of money spent I wouldn’t expect to have to send an entree back. Drinks, Apps, Service and desserts were all 5 star. I’d give it another shot, but maybe skip entrees.

    Great service! Wonderful views, nice menu but not outstanding selections for the $70 brunch menu. Restaurant needs a softgoods renovation. Every chair back and banquet seat was damaged or really worn including chair legs. For an intimate experience stay away from the large banquet area where groups are sat. Can get loud.

    Good Afternoon Deej, I appreciate your feedback as it is reviews like these that help us grow. I am happy to share with you that new custom chairs are in the works at the moment and we are excited to bring them out this spring. Just let us know when you are coming by next and I would be happy to assist you with an intimate table for your group as well as some snacks and a tour of our new furnishings. We truly appreciate your feedback and hope to see you again soon. Frank S Kemp General Manager Bygone
