Just little under a month ago Charles St. opened its doors right across the street from The Setai in South Beach. The New York-style restaurant opened by the Maso Hospitality Group hasn't received too much attention yet, but seems that so far guests have been enjoying it. Here's a roundup of what people are saying:

Excellent News: One reviewer on Opentable is very impressed with the new restaurant, calling it a "hidden gem". They note that the menu is "varied and very creative", that the spare ribs are "among the best ? anywhere", that the beef was "perfectly cooked" and that the service was "excellent". [Opentable]

Outstanding News: One Yelper says the new spot is an "outstanding addition to the SoBe neighborhood". He says the staff was "gracious" and "attentive" and that the atmosphere was "warm and sophisticated". His favorite dish was the octopus salad ("perfectly charred and tender"). [Yelp]

Poor News: Also on Opentable, a commenter was disappointed with the wait time. "We has a reservation for noon and our food didnt come until 1:30. Also, the manager was quite rude".[Opentable]

Good News: Another Yelp reviewer says the Charles St.'s got "welcoming, trendy décor". She praises the tuna tartar, the "light, refreshing and quite good" fish and the short ribs which she calls, "sweet, soft and plentiful". Of the service, "everyone was very nice and accommodating". [Yelp]

Savory News: This Yelp reviewer praises the atmosphere including the restaurant's "blond-wood bar, their communal counter and their cozy dining tables". Food and drink wise, he says the Kale salad and meatballs were "incredibly savory" and that the beer selection was impressive. [Yelp]
