Loved the French Vietnamese cuisine. Very original and amazingly delicious. We sat out in the back garden which was more relaxed. Indoors seemed a bit upscale. Everything we chose was to die for! A must! Can't wait to go back.

Definitely a place to go out on a date and pay too much for less than average food. The pho is definitely non traditional and Americanised. The fresh rolls are good.

Restaurant BT is a charming looking place with a great outdoor space, but the food has never blown me away either at this location or their previous one in Hyde Park.

The first time I dined at BT, was with husband and from that moment on, I was hooked! As soon as I had another excuse to visit this Tampa gem, I did. I met a friend there for lunch one hot day in June. The first time I dined inside. On this occasion, I was taken through the kitchen (fascinating!)... More

I was looking for Pho and found this fusion restaurant. I ordered the duck Pho off the lunch menu and loved it. The staff was great and let me order 'off the menu' for a starter. Overall, I had a great experience and would like to come back for dinner soon.

BT is such a gracious host-and the attention to detail here is remarkable. Completely enjoyed the fresh and perfect flavors in the Big Eye Tuna appetizer as well as the Green Papaya Salad. The Bahn Mi is exceptional--the only problem was that I ate it too quickly because it was so good! Also--a very well selected and comprehensive list of... More

The atmosphere is small and intimate while the menu is unlike anything I've seen in Tampa. Everything we ordered from cocktails, appetizer, entrees, and desserts were fantastic. Portion sizes were generous and very flavorful!! I raved about this dinner for days and cannot wait to go back. The Shaken Beef and Croissant Bread Pudding were among my favorites. Server was...

Food is healthy, fresh and creative. BT is by far the best chef in the Tampa bay area. Perfect place for a quiet romantic dinner or dinner with friends. A little difficult to find if you don't know the area but definitely worth it. Love this place!
