I was very surprised by the lack of knowledge regarding gluten intolerance and celiac with the servers. I was told by the server, “ you can walk around and you should be able to tell what things are gluten-free or not .” I have never heard such a thing. There were no ingredients stated at any of the stations, so there’s really no way of knowing what things are gluten free or not.. I will say that once I escalated the issue the manager was very courteous and friendly. However, I would warn anyone that has celiac or gluten intolerance the options are very limited and honestly not worth the brunch experience. I may try dinner in the future but was very unsatisfied with the brunch experience. There should definitely be more accommodation for gluten intolerance

What a fantastic meal. Bygone was an amazing experience from the cocktails, to the seafood tower to the main dishes. All of it was top notch. It's a spendy place, but for a special night or a celebration it fits the bill!

My bride and I had dinner here after our wedding reception. Bygone was the perfect spot for our first intimate moment together. The gave us a corner window seat surrounded by windows. It couldn't have been more perfect. 👌

Great ambiance, and a definite must-go at some point in your life. Service & quality of food is also top notch, but expect to pay for it. We spent about $200 per person, which included 2 alcoholic drinks and a dessert.

The service was 5 star and the quality of the food was outstanding. The price was remarkably over priced. The food was excellent and service was excellent but for one person to have a cocktail, a bite of a shared appetizer, and main entree and one table spoon of 2 sides, when all was said and done (tip, taxes, costs) it averaged out to almost $150/person. The same meal with the same service could easily be found at a less expensive location.

My partner and I had an incredible time at Bygone last night. Our server, Brian, was friendly, accommodating and very knowledgeable about the menu. He was funny and professional! The Prime Rib and Short ribs were delicious! The mixologist was able to craft a drink for us that was not on the menu. It was perfect. I would recommend this restaurant to others!

Our favorite place, but; In the past we've enjoyed the food and service - espeically the chef's table. Bygone was a classy place to dress up and have an exquisite meal out. I see now they have a dress code, which is good, online and posted at the entrance to the elevator. Incidentally this includes a COVID mask requirement for the buffet. All really good and shows how they care for their patrons. TOO BAD they don't enforce it at all. I can swear a few Baltimore panhandlers were having brunch on Sunday. Not everyone has "church going clothes" but at least take off your NFL knit hat per the rule. Declasse. And they hand out masks, very nice, to folks who "forget" theirs. But they don't enforce it. In the end.. enforce your rules... Time to look to some of Baltimore's other fine establishments.

The guy making my waffle burned the first one. The prime rib was cold. The shrimp was over cooked. The cheesy grits were dry. Overall the price of $75 per person was not right for the quality of the food, despite the large variety.

Cocktails were good, wines by the glass mediocre.

Very disappointing experience. They allow unmasked guests to roam around, including in the elevator which was very crowded, despite city ordinance requiring masks indoors. Yet, they carded us, a 52/41 couple. The manager was rude and seemed unconcern about the health risk of guests hanging out at the bar and lobby without masks. Yet, he would not accept a pic of my wife’s DL. Perhaps they care more about their liquor license than their guests’ health…

The waitress apologized and seem to be trying hard. But she couldn’t be as attentive as one might expect at this price point, given the number of tables she’s required to serve. All told, it took 40 minutes to place our food order. Food was so-so and we could not finish most of it.

This restaurant enjoys the best possible location in town. With so much potential, it’s a shame the execution is only mediocre.

Food was disappointing considering the price point. Service also lacked the level of attentiveness anticipated. Also, was disappointed that a very reasonable request to have the chef prepare an off menu item (fried oysters). Great view and solid drinks but overall this visit did not meet expectations.
