Manhattan Beach Post
Always amazing!Loved everything we had- raviolo, kale salad, skirt steak, squash blossoms. Everything is clearly fresh and prepared with a lot of love. Keep rocking it, MB Post - you are a major reason we love living in Manhattan Beach!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMA fabulous find in Man Beach!I love the food, service and atmosphere! But the biggest reason for loving this place is how accommodating they are! I was over 30 min late for my reservation and they still gave us the table and didn't rush us! It was so nice to be treated well - especially at a restaurant that remains so popular!! Thank you for that!!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Exellent!!MP Post is such a great neighborhood gem. Always wonderful and great, friendly service. Love that a great restaurant is in my neighborhood.6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food and fun atmosphereWe loved the great flavors of everything we tried.
we were there for brunch and had drinks, biscuits, bacon , hash and chimichangas. The dishes are meant to be shared and we enjoyed the unique presentations and ate every bite . The service was friendly and prompt, and the atmosphere is relaxed and fun. Cant wait to tell my friends about this place.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently Excellent DiningThis is my 3 time here in one year. The food is amazing each time. Service is friendly and attentive without being too much.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food and Service, butdon't try to carry on a conversation. In other words, your date will be impressed, but save the conversation 'till after dinner. Noise level gets crazy.
Service is friendly and well informed. There's lots for the wait staff to know and our waiter knew it all. Answered questions unhesitatingly about food and wine selections. Food portions are small but easy to share. One appetizer and two dinner selections plus vegetables were plenty for two of us. Everything prepared and presented beautifully. Not rushed even tho we were early and people lined up to get in.
All in all, a great experience. We'd return.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBest restaurant in Los AngelesProbably a top 10 dining experience of my life. MB POST just nails it on every level6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMA new US style of food & diningShared, smaller plates of sturdy, flavor packed, vivid food that delights all the senses! Dining becomes more social and memorable as you choose food to try and share. Can order and reorder through meal letting delicious food carry you, complementing but not upstaging the event.
A little bit of noise dampening would help as conversation is all "lean - in" if you want to hear or be heard. Faded postal graphics on outside wall seem a little too theme forced,6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMdinnerDinner was very good-we've been to the rest. a few times and it always is great.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstandingOne note, they have Brunch on Saturday as well as Sunday, so if you want the non-Brunch menu, be sure to check that! Brunch ends at 2PM.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFood and service is reallyFood and service is really good. Food items from 3 to 5 stars, average 4. Ambience would be more appreciated by those who enjoy a bar scene and are not bothered by loud restaurants.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMMust visit.TripAdvistor pointed us in the direction of MB Post when we were looking for somewhere to eat during a layover in LA on the way to Hawaii from the UK.
All I can say is, WOW, fantastic food and drink at very reasonable prices. A great atmosphere too. If only there was somewhere like this on my doorstep. Superb.5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBustling beach gemThis was my first time dining at the MB Post and it definitely lived up to all the great reviews I read about. Our table was in the front corner of the restaurant which definately added to the experience. We ordered a total of 4 dishes, 3 of which were suggestions from other friends. Everything was interesting, complex and delicious. They also offered a nice wine list to compliment the variety of dishes. Overall, we had a great experience and would definately return in the future.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMManhattan beach gemBoyfriend and I dined here recently. We are from Vegas so we are use to good service and a selection of great food. This restaurant is energetic and lively. The cocktail list is unique and you can tell the bartenders take pride in their craft. The food was amazing. The service was friendly and on point. Great experience. We recommended it to all our California friends.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat BrunchTook my wife and 2 daughters for a birthday brunch. Awesome food, chefs original take on breakfast standards. Loved the bacon cheddar biscuits with maple butter, corn beef cheeks hash, ricotta stuffed french toast, fried chicken with truffle laced honey, eggs benedict. Cant wait to find an excuse to introduce it to more friends and family. Not cheap but great for a special occasion or out of town guest.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptionalWe had a wonderful time at Manhattan Beach Post! Our food server was very pleasant and knowledgable about the menu. The food was unique and flavorful. The shared dining style allowed one to try many different tastes. The history adds a fun touch in terms of learning that the location was an actual post office many years ago. The atmosphere is comfortable--a unique combination of gourmet food in a rustic setting. I would highly recommend it for food lovers.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food prepared withDelicious food prepared with fresh, seasonal ingredients.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFinally a great South Bay RestauranWhereas there have been plenty of good restaurants in Manhattan/Hermosa Beach this one seems to be on that really knows how to do things right. Changing menus with interesting foods keep it interesting. The staff is very accommodating of special diets, knowledgeable enough about the dishes to offer minor substitutes or alternatives.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, but too loud to talkGreat food, but we could hear each other at a two top table. Try noise dampening under the tables, felt or other noise canceling fabric.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMMBP does food & service perfectlyLook for this spot and make sure you go. Make reservations and go hungry. Lots of little plates but they will fill you up. The kitchen is very cool to watch. Chef is creative and makes food that anyone will love. Its comfort food and and a culinary experience. Staff and service is perfect. I end all my trips to CA with MBP.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMService is fadingWe enjoyed our small bites, as usual, but we experienced indifferent-to-nonchalant service on a night where the place had open tables. It appeared our waitress was preoccupied with talking to the staff rather than provide good service.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistent in the best wayWe are locals and head to MB Post a couple times a month. The food and service are consistently of the highest standard. Not stuffy, just warm and welcoming - both the food and service. It's just a well-run operation that is a pleasure to have so close to home.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!I had a wonderful experience all around. The food was just outstanding and the service was perfect5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food although couldGreat food although could use more varying brunch options. Solid service even when busy. Definitely reserve ahead to avoid a wait.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMBest restaurant in the South BayIn an area bereft of good restaurants, MB Post is a fantastic option. Most items are really good, and the prices are not outrageous compared to MB Post's competitors. Reservations at a table provides a relatively quiet dining experience, but the community tables allow for walk-ins and last minute decision makers when reservations are unavailable. Service has always been patient and helpful given the variety in small-plate options. And the wine and cocktail lists are varied and interesting.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently AwesomePlace never disappoints. My date and I shared 5 small plates and all of them were fantastic. Service was friendly and efficient. THE BEST RESTAURANT in the South Bay hands down.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFlavor-paloozaMB Post offers an array of small plates with big flavors. I can see why they book so far in advance.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!My friend I had a great experience at MB Post. Wait staff was very knowlegdable and attentive, particularly with pairing wines with the dishes. The food was outstanding! It does get quite noisy.I can't wait to go back again!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AML O V ENothing but good things to say about this place. The food was some of the best I've eaten in a long time, the service was wonderful, I love the vibe. I will absolutely be going back and have already recommended MB Post to several people. A great find !5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for Mother's day andWent for Mother's day and they did not disappoint - food, atmosphere and service was very good. If it were closer I would go back on a regular basis :(5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat all around spotFood was amazing - the pork jowls and biscuits are always on the top of my list, but the ceviche was a new find.
It's so fun and lively.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMNoiseSuper loud!
Just unable to have a comfortable conversation
without asking "what did you say?" 100 times.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways EnjoyAlways enjoy heading to MB Post.

Generous-sized small plates large enough to share. And so, so delicious!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Casual FoodMB Post is mostly communal tables but it works well. Lots of small plates are truly outstanding including the sprouts, lamb belly, and lentil soup. 2nd time eating there while on business in LA.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA Memorable EveningWe were a party of six celebrating a birthday and the food, service and drinks couldn't have been better.
We were taken care of superbly, each and every dish was delicious (scallops were phenomenal) and the
drinks from the bar were excellent too.
Looking forward to going back. It is a rare restaurant that takes pride in its service when it is as hot as this one.
Kudos!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLove itWe love this place. The servers are great about making recommendations on food and wine. The biscuits are mind-blowingly delish and the veggies are terrific. It's all good. And the salted caramel chocolate tart was scrumptious. Going again on my next birthday.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were a group of 5 womenWe were a group of 5 women (first time visit) and we all loved your restaurant.The menu was creative, the service was wonderful and the ambiance very cool. We will all be back - thanks. Mary Tarango4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Manhattan of the BeachMB Post was recommended by many. Upon arriving was surprised at the laid back feel of the place that was so appropriate for a beach town. The food, however, is not what you would expect in a beach town. Starting with the different bread selections, the homemade cheddar bacon biscuits are outstanding. I had the creatively prepared squid: the body was grilled; the tentacles, fried. It too was outstanding, tender and a great juxtaposition of textures. Great wine list and a friendly staff that really knows there stuff make this a must if you are anywhere in Southern Cal.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMJust the best restaurant.Just the best restaurant. The combination of flavors and ingredients is simply outstanding. Sit at the bar and eat and drink. Greg and Sal are terrific bartenders; they know their food as well as drinks.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWay too noisyThe food and service are top notch, but it is so noisy. The only way I could tell my partner was talking was that his lips moved, but we heard every word of the loudmouth business men sitting next to us.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food & service (pricey)The service was impeccable and the food was outstanding. Prices were a bit too high for portion size (2 small squares of cheese shouldn't be $12). I'll definitely go back for very special occasions.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBesides the food being amazing,Besides the food being amazing, I have never been in a restaurant where ALL the staff members were genuinely friendly, perfectly attentive and observant when to be of service. I had the best experience at your restaurant! Thank you to the owners for creating a truly magical evening.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional dinner, reallyExceptional dinner, really outstanding meal.
