Safety Harbor (Tampa Bay)--Restaurant review Cello's CharHouse

Warning to those thinking of going to Cello's CharHouse: Do not waste your money!

We went on a Saturday night about 5:30. There was only one other table that was occupied. Yet, the service was somewhat slow.

First, a note about atmosphere--they were playing the music way too loud. Second, our waitress talked in a very annoying, obviously "fake" voice. She kept trilling the her "r"s and she wasn't speaking Spanish--highly annoying. She was almost speaking like she was in a play.

Second, the flatbread, beer soup and salad were good, but those were the only things. I ordered the Filet Mignon, medium well and my boyfriend ordered salmon. My boyfriend and I both requested the sauce on the side, but it came with the sauce on it. When we tried cutting the steak and fish, it was obvious why they put the sauce on it. My steak was way overcooked--like the cook had forgotten it and it had no flavor. The salmon was the same way--very dry and tough.

The best thing about this place is the value--you do receive a lot of food for your money. However the quality is subpar and not worth the price. We definitely will not return.
