Restaurant BT is a Tampa institution in my mind. From her first location on Gandy Boulevard, through Hyde Park, and now at the location on MacDill Avenue the restaurant is a total success. This new location has both indoor and outdoor seating. The parking lot...More

Having been to Vietnam in September and yearning for some Vietnamese food, I was excited to stumble across Restaurant BT's menu ... and boy am I glad I did. The food here is nothing short of fantastic -- with myriad flavors, fresh ingredients, and a...More

Outstanding French-influenced Vietnamese and Vietnamese-influenced French food, beautifully served in an attractive space. Service was friendly and excellent. Just watch over-ordering: portions are large. Two appetizers and two main courses were too much for two of us. On the other hand, do over-order and take...More

We were referred to BT by friends and were not disappointed. We showed up without reservations (I would suggest making one) but the friendly maitre d' sat was able to seat us on the patio. The food was excellent and the service very professional yet...More

I enjoyed my meal and thought the prices reasonable. Started with a blood orange and mint saketini ($11) which was just so so. The foie gras special ($17) was good--comes simply sautéed and covered with a light, sweet syrup and a side of pickled figs...More

Service reminds one of going to the circus. Waiters act like clowns. Food had nice presentation but no flavor. DO NOT order the lobster bisque. Tasted burned and flavorless. I can't imagine how the owner/chef has stayed in business. Chairs are plastic and uncomfortable. Was...More

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.
