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!

Beautiful restaurant. Celebrated my daughters graduation. Only downside is they had no kids friendly options (not even a kid pasta) and my oldest son had a cashmere sweater on and he’s under 16 and I was initially told he could t come in without a collared shirt (he wore slacks, belt, & dress shoes and it was an issue)

We loved the ambiance and the atmosphere. Every detail was considered, and we loved that! Our host was so polite and made sure he greeted and managed us professionally and excellently! Our server was incredible!!!! As we anticipated the food, we imagined it would be as great as everything we had experienced! However, the food was not well flavored or seasoned. Our hash and potatoes were overly buttery without much seasoning so unfortunately, the food was beautiful but not tasty. We did enjoy the French toast and the bacon. I would recommend bygone for everything but the food. If the food could be improved, bygone would EASILY be a favorite place.

We went for a special birthday. I requested a window seat for the view and we were sat at the first table right off the lobby that had a view of the lounge balcony with the water behind that. We requested to move but the server seemed sad at this request so we decided to just stay where we were because I felt bad. It was definitely not a romantic, intimate experience as every seating had to pass by us, and our view was of people’s backsides as they posed for pictures on the balcony. We had a later reservation and the bar music ramped up as the night went on. The food was good, cocktails were fantastic, and our server was very nice. The experience did not live up to the price.

Went 4 stars on service instead of 5 this time. Reserved 2+ months in advance to get window table over harbor. Still ended up being put in back regardless for a special occasion and seemingly on top of other tables nearby. Other than that disappointment quality of food and servers are great as always for a memorable experience.

From the moment you enter to when you leave, every employee/staff member were beyond amazing! Everyone was friendly, greeted you, and was more than happy to assist you. Our waiter Neil was the best waiter we've had in our life. He was super friendly, knew the menu, recommended things to try, and accommodated me with the menu since I am pregnant. He showed me which items were raw, or had items that could be potentially hazardous to my baby. I would like to thank Neil and everyone at the Bygone for helping me celebrate my husbands graduation that day!
