Had a great meal and enjoyed the original twist on some home style favorites. The service is exceptional, the food is delivered in good time and I enjoyed the ambiance of a first rate dining restaurant. The mix of couples, families and singles felt just right and as I left around 7:00, the bar seemed to be buzzing. Really enjoyable space.

Food was absolutely amazing!

Portions were small.

Servers were friendly.

The food took an inordinately long time to come after placing our order which was quite surprising since we were the first ones seated at 11am.

The ginger ale was beyond disappointing, but it's the only thing I can drink with meals.

From start to finish a great dining experience! Greeted by the friendly and attentive hostess. Our waiter was delightful. Loved the fried chicken, corn bread, gorgeous salad, fantastic chocolate dessert. Lovely wine selection. Great price point for high quality and inventive food. The outdoor patio was so pleasant. Tables are set far enough apart for privacy yet a friendly environment. First time there.......Can't wait to return! Thank you Post & Beam!

Very welcoming by the host. Had a nice vibe. Our waiter was was very nice but I felt like I was looking for him a lot. The ha a hurricane for a drink. It was great. The hint of passion fruit was a perfect addition. The good was not was impressive. I had the deviled eggs with smoked catfish. They were just okay. Not bad enough to complain about but not tasty enough to order again. My friend had the Gumbo was tasty. Full of flavor with plenty seafood and rice. I attempted to have the pork chop. However the chef sent it cover in seasoning that I specifically not to be added. So I ended up getting a Margarita pizza which good. Soft thin crust it was good. They did make up for the problems with the food. But I'm just not compelled to come back unless it's for drink only.

This was my second time Dining at Post and Beam. As the first time was very nice so was the second. This is a restaurant that I would go to any day of the week and at the spur of the moment. They have a nice bar and good drinks along with a pleasant wine list. I had the catfish last time. It was light and flakey. With that I had the Brussels sprouts. Both were very yummy and not overdressed.

P&B is Special little place tucked in a mall setting. I loved the dim lighting and genuinely warm staff. My husband and I sat in the covered patio which was perfect for quiet conversation. We shared the asparagus and mussels which were cooked to perfect texture. The catfish was perfectection on a plate and pizza was flavorful like Rhode Island style. I was so satisfied I skipped dessert, But I can't wait to try it next time.

I have been to Post and Beam many times but this was the first time for Easter Buffet Brunch. The selection was limited and the lady who was serving kept telling us that they are elrunning short on meats so she kept giving us one piece of think pastrami. The service for bottomless Mimosa was extremely slow and the patio was extremely loud with drunk ladies shouting and laughing...

Overall this was a great experience. The food was great. We had the short ribs and roasted chicken which we highly recommend. The servers were pleasant but not very friendly but it may be normal for LA. I would eat here again for sure.

I live in the area for years however I was a little hesitant to visit this location. I was guilty of making a judgment based on the location. This restaurant is awesome from the moment you walk in to the time of departure. Our waiter was very familiar with the menu and suggested a items we would desire. We started with the cornbread that melted in my mouth, I was hooked. Next came the turkey chill which was well season and enjoyable. I also tried "Shrimps with Grits. I never ate grits before; It was delicious. The pizza and my alcoholic beverage was also great and worth the price and the calories. Lets just say Post and bean is one of my new favorite place to go and eat my friends. I'm glad I gave it a try. Thank you

Food was spotty. We had an excellent salad. MY iron skillet chicken dinner was raw. Requested more heat,,,but still delivered wanting more heat on that chicken. Finger Potatoes were not very good as well as the Mac and Cheese....disappointing.
The waiter was attentive...it was his 5th day there. The Brussels sprouts were excellent.

Food was great. I dine here once a month and the meals are always good. The service is usually good. This time it was slow and he seemed disinterested. I'd chalk it up to a bad night as usually we have a great experience. I'd recommend this place. Nice local spot.

Bottom line: excellent food, sloooow service - at least on the day we went. We will try again in the hopes that we just went on an off night, but we waited almost an hour to just have our order taken. In the time we waited we saw several tables just up and leave, which we considered doing as well. There were only 2 waiters servicing the entire restaurant, one of whom was also bar tending and the other was also hosting. Once we did place our order the food came quickly and was worth waiting for. The cocktails were also very good.

Our Sunday brunch with friends was fantastic! The food and bottomless mimosas were great, the service was friendly and very efficient, the ambience was great--easy, casual. It's a superb choice for Sunday brunch, but we've eaten there even more often for lunch or dinner, and it's always a delightful experience. Even the decaf coffee was excellent!

As always, the food was quite delicious. However, the restaurant was sooooo beyond loud, we were not able to hear each other from across the table or hold any sort of conversation. And I don't just mean loud--I mean the kind of noise that leaves your ears ringing for hours afterwards.

My wife and I love coming here for special occasions like Valentine's Day or whenever we have friends and/or family in town. The food is always good, a nice mix of southern dishes (love their catfish and their braised shortrib is not to be missed) and Italian. Their wood fired pizzas are fantastic. A true neighborhood gem! Please support this local business as it helps support the neighborhood surrounding it. To Brad Johnson, restauranteur, cheers!
