This was our first experience for our anniversary dinner. The atmosphere was great, the view was unbelievable and the waiter was excellent. There arrived at our table with a personalized card wishing us a happy anniversary. Personal touch and attention to details were awesome. We will definitely return.

This is our favorite place for a good cocktail or champagne with a breathtaking city view. The harbor from the patio terrace is exceptional and the drinks and service never disappoint! Love it here. Frequent flyer!

This restaurant was amazing! We are not from Baltimore so we were recommended by a friend of ours and are so happy we asked! This restaurant is at the top of the four seasons hotel so every seat in the house has an incredible view of the city.

We were there for my birthday celebration and over all everything was nice. The only issues were the service was very slow on the restaurant and lounge side. The chicken was not what we expected and very dry. Also, I never received an birthday dessert. In which I was looking forward to.

It would be nice to able to include outside dining within your reservation. After securing a sitter and having cancellation fee, it’s pretty guaranteed that the party will fulfill there reservation. We still waited 25 minutes to be able to dine outside just to be informed that there was only the bar menu offered. So you cannot have the scallops and dine outside at the same time. We compensated our bar server before moving inside to dine from the actual full menu. COVID has made it very difficult for some parents to have consistent date night. So we were really looking forward to a seemless experience, like normal at The Bygone. We have dined there several times before without incident so we will chalk it up as “getting back to normal”. However, we will probably hop down to their sister restaurant next time to have a more fulfilling date night outdoors. 😌

I frequent this restaurant 4 / 5 times a year and this is the first time I thought they needed more help. Our server, while friendlier than so many just seemed to be behind the eight ball. Service was slower than usual. I don’t blame him I blame the managers for not having more people on staff And while the appetizers are amazing I just wish there was more on the plate

I always have a great experience at Bygone. My servers name was Chris, he was great.! And another employee by the name of Chris whom took my picture was also great.! The food,desert,cocktail and wine was amazing.! The only thing that bothered me was the new menu. I was anticipating the lamb chops, and lobster bisque soup. I bragged about the whole lobster being carved and prepared to perfection. However, most of that was not available, and the entrees that were available were drastically different. I understand after the pandemic changes needed to be made, and the food was still equally delicious.

Me and my husband eat her often. I never get the same thing and this is the first restaurant that I have been to and never been disappointed and loved the food. The new spring menu was different but still everything was paired nicely.

The venue itself is obviously very nice (top of the four seasons, views of the harbor and city), however, I felt the ambiance, service and menu were just "okay." A bit overrated in my opinion but definitely worth checking out once.

Honestly one of the worst experiences I’ve ever had. I will say the man at the elevators and the hosts were amazing. Very nice and accommodating, but our server was just not engaging. I’d never been here before as I live in Dallas, Texas and I felt like there was no guide through the menu, no spiel about the menu, just a piece a card stock handed to me with words on it. Our server really never came by and I felt the the Service Assistants took care of me instead of the server. Our server seemed preoccupied with another table and making small talk with this table and being absent for her other tables. I was very excited to try Bygone, but would likely not return or possibly go to the bar side in hopes the service is of better quality.

Our experience at The Bygone started off on a high note. My boyfriend and I were directed by a very nice gentleman to the 29th floor of the four seasons hotel, where the restaurant was located. The host and the front of the house staff were so kind and welcoming. We had the best seat in the house, completely secluded and private. The restaurant itself is beautiful, and our table had the best view of the city. We each ordered a drink and then we ordered a few appetizers. These were the only times that our server came to the table. 45 minutes had passed since had finished our drinks and our appetizers, yet no one came to check on us for more drinks or to ask for our dinner orders. My boyfriend and I are not ones to complain, but we had to say something. The manager came out and apologized. He had mentioned that due to Covid, he was short staffed and was extremely apologetic. He checked the time stamps on our food and drinks and confirmed that no one had attended to us & comped our appetizers. The food and ambiance of the restaurant are amazing! Our experience may have just been a one time hiccup. I would still recommend this spot to anyone visiting Baltimore and looking for a nice, higher end restaurant for some cocktails and seafood.

The experience was enjoyable from the beginning when we walked into the Four Seasons to the end when leaving. The doormen, hostesses, wait staff, manager, everything thing. The food was outstanding, the view was remarkable. They helped us celebrate our anniversary with a card and serving of champagne.
