Our seat was perfect, it offered a breathtaking view. Our server was phenomenal, Marcus, and he made excellent recommendations. My best friend could not stop raving about the soft shell crab. Would definitely return.

Overall the food is very good but what you pay vs the quantity does not add up me and my boyfriend went there and we ordered two lobsters the bill was 164$ and it was quite small and not filling I know of another restaurant that I could get a stuffed lobster tail with a pound of crab meat and two sides for 40 to 60$. In all honesty your only paying to dress nice get a really nice view and get a meal that's overpriced and not filling

I wish that I could give this establishment 100 stars. From the moment you arrive you’re treated like royalty. The manager Chris is very humble and knows exactly what good management and service is. The chefs food was top tier. The ambience was perfect. Our waiter also provided exceptional service and oddly enough the drinks were strong. I enjoyed every moment of date night here with my husband. I definitely hope to find time to return soon. Very classy restaurant.

We were accommodated at every level. We were seated at a table near the windows. We were seated timely. Our server, Ann, was knowledgeable, funny, and tentative. Then the night was topped off with a fantastic 2012 Rioja and amazingly good food.

Overall, the atmosphere was nice. They seated a large group behind us and they significantly contributed to the noise level. The staff at servers were excellent.

We made a reservation 2 weeks in advance requesting a window table, which was not honored, although a table with a window was free 10 minutes into our arrival. We were on time. We were not given a choice to wait for the table. Although everything else was excellent, this ruined the experience. When we asked to be changed, we were dismissed. I don't think I will come back for dinner.

Visit the Bygone to celebrate my wife birthday, the only disappointment was the menu that on their website is not a current menu, what we wanted to order they no longer offer... this is definitely a good place to go if you want to impress that special one in your life...

Rachael (waitress) was exceptional! Made stellar recommendations based on limited information, was attentive, and very easy to talk to during our meal. We made reservations for 830pm but couldnt be seated until around 9pm. That was a bit of a drag but drinks at the bar and Rachael's service offset that small inconvenience. I have been to the Bygone previously and the rest of my table (4) had never been...they were impressed and will be back!

This was the second time going cause the first time we had a reservation and we got there only for them to tell us they had no table for us. We got there and had to wait for more than 45 minutes before we could get seated. Never going there again

The restaurant was nice with wonderful views. It was quite expensive for what you got specifically with appetizers and more so desserts. The desserts were barely 2 bites.

Found the food to be uninteresting. Very simple menu, but nothing was outstanding. Had higher expectations for the price. Would go back for the view and the drinks, but not the food.

Great atmosphere and food. Our server Anne was so nice and accommodating. We were seated next to the window, they wished my boyfriend Happy Birthday and we got great pictures. Can’t wait to be back. Great drinks and wine list as well.

Very nice staff but very, very slow. Despite only 3 people in front of me at the omelette bar, and three burners, took about 15 minutes to get mine. Took about 30 minutes to get my drink. Finally served my coffee as was asking for the check (at least didn’t charge me). The food was OK - for example, the hash browns were just plain potatoes, completely dried out, and no seasoning. That said, THE VIEW made it a great brunch.

Great experience at Bygone last night. From the moment we were greeted downstairs to the time we left everyone was friendly and hospitable and helpful. We felt very special the whole time. Ann was an amazing server - great suggestions and knowledgeable. She made us feel relaxed and the meal moved at the perfect pace.
The food was excellent! There was not one thing we didn't love.
We will definitely be back! Great job by everyone
