The ambiance and view of the Bygone is spectacular, unfortunately, I cannot say the same for the food. The food does not taste good, in fact there is little taste at all. Everything is really bland.

Can’t say enough good things about this place or the food. They knock it out of the park every time. Some of the staff adorned Pride pins and that level of company support goes a LONG way. The manager, Chris, made several stops at our table to check in and he truly put every bow tie onto each situation to make the experience, food, and drink perfect. Thanks for all you do!

For a fine dining place, I expected the overall service to be better. Compare to the Charleston, here is less organized and the wait staff is not properly trained to the fine dining level. For food is not too bad.

Bygone was just as expected. The absolute best feature about it is the view, simply amazing. The customer service was top tier as well. I really loved our waiter Chris and how he really catered to our needs and was able to accommodate us. I will be returning here again for sure.

Food was good, though I have been to upscale restaurants with better value volume of food. For the price your paying for the view and atmosphere. Not much else to say.

Our experience was perfect from the moment we were greeted downstairs to the moment we left. Our server was incredible and the chef even made us a vegan meal + sorbet and berry dessert that was so delicious. We were told that the vegetables and mushrooms used were local from their farm. Loved it!! Thank you to the Bygone team!

not sure if or how the dress code is being enforced. there were several gentlemen wearing t-shirts and ladies in ripped jeans showing half of their legs. Hardly can call it elegant (subjective opinion, of course). I assume, shorts are acceptable nowadays as well.
From a personal experience, when I was wearing a button down dress shirt with a banded stand collar, I was denied entry due to the collar not being folded, which I found ridiculous.
But overall, it’s still one of our favorite spots with an exquisite view.
Will definitely be coming back, just not having to worry about the new quite relaxed dress code.

Two folks ordered the Prime Rib sandwich which was very good and two of us ordered the Crab Louie salad which was not. I love crab meat and have been eating it since I was a child. The salad was very fishy smelling and did not have a good flavor.

I would like to come back for dinner and give Bygone anther go. And if I came back for brunch, I would order something else than the Crab Louie salad.

Wait staff is very professional and attentive.

The view is unbelievable.

I was so excited to dine here for my husband’s birthday. However I was completely underwhelmed. While the food was delicious, it took hours and our server was MIA most of the evening. I’m accustomed to dine experiences like that of Bygone and that additional time may be needed between courses, but an hour between courses is too much. There was no recognition of my husband’s birthday. We were seated deep in a corner, so the much sought after city view was just ok. Ok I just expected a much better dining experience.

Certainly one of the best restaurants to go to, if not the best in the Baltimore region. We went to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary and they dint disappoint us. Food was sumptuous, drinks were awesome and the best part of all is the Ambience. It was really eclectic. Staff was courteous and friendly, especially one of the managers, who paid particular attention to our needs. All in all, its worth the experience!

Food, service, atmosphere was excellent. Noise level is a little loud for fine dinning towards the late evening. Dress code was violated multiple times and the standard should be maintained!
