Nice atmosphere, Food was just okay for $300. It did not live up to the hype in my opinion.

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

We didn’t receive prompt service from our waitress. Often had to flag someone else down to get assistance. This happened multiple times. She was very friendly just not attentive. Unacceptable for the price.

The food was OK but again to me along with the lack of good service not a great overall value for the price. It was disappointing because it was a special occasion and very costly experience for us as a family because my father is handicapped and I had to pay several hundred dolllars for the car service to get my parents there for this occasion.
We also had to wait for a very long time in the front lobby before someone assisted us and the person who showed us to our table was not very warm or friendly. There was also water on the floor that I pointed out to him right before the buffet table and it was not taken care of in a timely manner in my opinion. I had to warn my mother a while later to avoid a fall. My fiancé and I have dined there several times for dinner and this was a complete disappointment as we had been wanting to try the brunch for several months.

My Girlfriend and I had a great experience at The Bygone! We arrived and my car was taken by valet and as we entered we were greeted with awesome energy! The front-desk host inquired where my girlfriend resided as they knew it was her first time visiting and she enjoyed the gesture! We were escorted to the elevator and as we made it to the top floor, we were greeted by whom I believe was the restaurant manager. We then were seated by the window with an awesome view of the harbor and had Ann who was a wonderful waitress! We had the Dover Sole and Lamb Chops which were magnificent! As we prepared to leave, we were met by the restaurant manager who inquired about our experience and thanked us for choosing to dine at The Bygone! In closing, we had a 5-Star experience!

Arrived expecting a Four Seasons experience, came away with somewhat mixed results.

Breaking it down, we arrived slightly early for our reservation and sat at the bar for a drink or two. This was great! The bartender was very skilled and attentive. Views of the city from the bar are phenomenal. Great experience!

We were sat, ordered another round of drinks and our dinner. To summarize, the food was great, the service at table-not so much. We felt neglected and this should not be the case as the Four Seasons supposedly sets the bar in hospitality.

Would definitely come back for the bar and drinks, probably not for dinner.

The view was spectacular and made the evening!! Without the view, I would not come back. The food was presented lovely, but very little of it. Lobster appetizer $30. They said a lobster tail...only half a tail and a small tail to boot. I had to accept that I was paying for that view.

Didn't live up to the hype. Neither the restaurant nor out waiter had personality. My wife's appetizer came out incorrectly. When they brought out what she ordered, the rockfish, she said it was flavorful. She did enjoy the lobster entree. I had the duck breast and probably would have enjoyed it had it not been overcooked and tough. The only saving grace was the view of the harbor, which was excellent.

Nice restaurant beautifully decorated, too close to other people, it was really loud. The waiter however was very accommodating and he personalized our experience.
