Great experience and I have already told friends. I think you do need to enforce the dress code and address guest if they or their children are to loud. The Prime Rib that waitress suggested was the best and I will have that again. Now let's talk about the cocktails, mmmm maybe the bartender was having an off night but I did expect better. Overall, it was great and the staff was a perfect 10. Keep the good work and don't rest of your laurels because you are starting to get mixed reviews; I wouldn't the general public to miss such a unique experience.

Took my husband there for his birthday. We were disappointed. The scenery was great and the food taste good but the selection is minimum. I ordered the lamb which was amazing but they has no vegetables or starches for us to order with it. I asked the waiter but he act as if he didn't understand me. To overpriced and not the best service. 😕 DISAPPOINTED 😞

Sorry but 15 dollars for potatoes...pleaseee. The table was so dark I could barely see my meal, and my girl's drink tasted like Nyquil. The waiter drowned our plates with olive oil and no herbs...NOT impressed.

GOOD notes...food was SUPER fast. Service was nice.

Food received a 4 because how did y’all run out of broccoli? The broccoli was so good we wanted more , also the prime rib had a lot of fat around it, overall the atmosphere, the scenery, the view, & the servers were bomb, i will be returning

The restaurant was beautiful but I was disappointed that despite a dress code the dining guests were very casually dressed. I think it takes away from the special occasion. I also hoped for a window table and was not accommodated.
The waiter however was very professional, attentive and outstanding service. Overall a good evening out celebrating my Fiancé’s birthday

Excellent food, great service but the place lacked class. We adhered to the more formal dress code and figured that would set the tone for the evening, only to be surrounded by a lot of people who could care less. We had people falling asleep on the shared bench next to us, and groups yelling to each other over our table. Great food but honestly it’s a one and done type of situation and we won’t be returning.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary.

Ordered soft shell crab (best we ever had), shrimp cocktail (very good), lobster and halibut (both excellent).

Service was outstanding. Location (rooftop of Four Seasons with sweeping view of Bmore skyline) and ambience are worth the money.

For a special occasion or just a treat, Bygone is a great choice. You get two great experiences in one - excellent restaurant and lounge, with a fabulous rooftop view. Awesome ambiance and customer service! Rachel, our server, took great care of our party of five!

I order the duck that was carved tableside. The waiter struggled with this task and butchered the fowl. the result was very unappealing. Additionally he was sweating profusely and the situation became unsanitary.

We had such a fabulous night. The front desk staff was extremely friendly and immediately offered to help us with photos. I regrettably did not catch our servers name but she was so wonderful and friendly, helpful, funny and sweet and just elevated our experience even more. The food was wonderful, all of it, especially the rotisserie duck, truffled gnocchi and summer tomatoes with burrata. The cocktails were well crafted and the bottled wine list was extensive and covered all price points so we were able to find something delicious and reasonably priced. The only negative thing I have to say is that the dim lighting, while setting the mood nicely, made it difficult to see some of the food which seemed to be beautifully plated. Overall a great experience from the minute we stepped off the elevator. Planning to go back for a drink this evening and take in the views once more.

Everything was absolutely perfect. We went here for our first anniversary and put a note about it in the reservation. The host greeted us by congratulating us on our special event and they even gave us a card that was already at our table when we were seated. The waitress was incredible and the other guests really added to the atmosphere. Very POC friendly. Every staff me never we encountered greeted us and was so friendly. The food was delicious, filling and healthy portions. Drinks were strong and tasty, absolutely worth the dollar. One of the best meals we’ve had by far. The perfect way to spend our special day.

Very overpriced. $180 for 2 people for brunch and 2 mimosas. $220 with a tip. Food was your typical brunch food. Nothing special. Views were nice. I guess you’re paying for the views.

Total rip-off. For $75 a person you are out of food within 30 minutes.
Breads were cold, not freshly baked. No non-red meat option, so if you don’t eat seafood or beef, you are out of luck. No fresh desert. No cream cheese. No decent salad options.
