I love BT’s! It is the best place in Tampa for the freshest and delicious food. I have my regular favorites such as the snapper and pumpkin soup, however BT is always surprising us with the best specials. The service is always so professional and kind. I highly recommend BT for a date, special occasion or with great friends.

One of the absolute best restaurants in Tampa. The service is impeccable, the food is unique, flavorful, and beautifully presented, and the ambiance is ideal. A true gem in the Tampa dining scene.

BT'S has been a favorite of mine for years and it still seems and is special dining. Always the freshest of ingredients are served. Love the rolls, the escargot, the steak tartare, the duck, duck goose dish, the snapper and everything else. I took an out of town guest from DC where fine dining is the norm, and he loved it!

My husband and I went here for our anniversary dinner on recommendations from multiple friends. Needless to say, expectations were high. Restaurant BT surpassed our expectations. It has a very quaint ambiance--we entered through the kitchen, accidentally, but they greeted us as if we belonged--I guess this happens a lot. The kitchen was clean and tidy. Our waiter was attentive, but not overbearing. We had the octopus carpaccio, oyster soup, a mozarella/tomato/pine nut salad, my husband had the Bouillabaise de BT and I had the scallops , which were the chef special of the day. Everything we had was fresh and a creative combination of flavors that I had never had before. It was a lovely dinner. At the end, they brought us a chocolate mouse that said Happy Anniversary. I have been raving about it to all of my friends since.

The Ceviche starter was very good, nice vegetable and fish combination. The service was good until it came time to get the bill. The pumpkin soup was good, but not very good. The dinner- Red Snapper- bland, set on top of a cheap coleslaw, surrounded by cucumber slices was mediocre. Not the quality expected for the price.

We found this place our son's freshman year at University of Tampa. He is now graduating and we have gone back to this restaurant with each visit. The food is amazing. The service is perfect. I look forward to this meal with each visit. It could not be a better experience. This trip we were celebrating both my son's and wife's birthday. Small touches like preparing a special menu to wish them happy birthday to desert which came with a birthday message. This is my favorite restaurant and I travel all over the world for my job!

The food is always excellent and the service was extraordinary last Friday. We were seeing a show at 8 pm and told the staff and the food was out quickly and they followed up to respond to our additional request immediately.
