Restaurant BT Ratings and Reviews
Great restaurant! We have been there several times throughout the years and have had a great meal each time. The menu does change a bit periodically, but there are some dishes that are consistently there. Sakitinis are tasty. Beer selection is decent. Desserts are simple, and nicely presented. Parking is good in the side. very stylish restaurant. Service was excellent and friendly.
Hands down my most favorite restaurant! I love BT’s. The food is so incredible. Everything is made to order and just so fresh and wonderful. BT puts such tremendous thought into her menu. I️ love so many of her typical items on the menu like the Snapper on top of of the Tai salad. She is always surprising us with awesome speciality items on the menu. Don’t miss the pumpkin soup, it is like nothing you ever had before.
Wow. Just wow. Everything was fresh and delicious. Server was knowledgeable and was very helpful with the wine list. We entered the restaurant through the spotless kitchen and the chef was welcoming and you could see that the food being prepared was exquisite.
So many things I wanted to try. Will return soon.
We were taking my son and daughter-in-law out for the evening. They thought they knew all the best places in Tampa - surprise - they missed this one! We all really enjoyed our evening, the food, the waitstaff, the ambiance, everything about it. A wonderful jewel in Tampa's fine dining crown.
not able to present anything positive. The service was slow and unresponsive and the food almost inedible. We had the spring rolls to start, over fried and the pork mixture was overground and tasted fishy. My main entrée- the shaken beef, was not cooked properly and tasted off. And I ended up being sick for the next two days, probably the beef. I complained about the food tasting off, and that set off a debate. After quite a back and forth with the owner, they ultimately decided that I should not be charged for it. (I had only eaten one piece which was enough). other items on the menu might be better, but I wouldn't recommend taking the risk.
BT is a talented chef. Some of the cuisine is delicious and some is just a solid good.
Their corkage fee is exorbitant given the casual atmosphere so I usually drink wines by the glass. They have an "okay" selection but the prices are high and the pours are not generous...about 4 oz I would guess. I was paying $11 for a 4 oz glass of a Rioja you can get at Publix for $17.99 if that gives you and idea of their wine-by-the-glass situation. So, for these reasons, it is a good but not great restaurant in my opinion. I prefer going to her bistro where there is much better value and the food is very good.
Moved from Tampa four years ago and wanted to see if BT is as good as it used to be. So upon my visit I made reservations with friends and realize BT has gotten even better. From her classic signature dishes to a few new creative appetizers and entrees each bite was simply delicious. The service was excellent too. I'll definitely be back on my next visit to Tampa.
