Manhattan Beach Post (M.B. Post), a soulful, highly personal restaurant by Chef and co-owner David LeFevre brings a playful, artisan menu of small shared plates, hand-crafted cocktails, and small production wines to the South Bay. M.B. Post is the culmination of 15 years of work, travel, and finely honed technique in the world's most vibrant culinary communities by Michelin-stared chef, David LeFevre. Renowned for his fine-dining experience and seafood mastery at Water Grill, LeFevre returns to his culinary roots with a more rustic menu, built to be shared and served in a gracious and welcoming environment.

This was our very first time here & we had an incredible time! We ordered their famous biscuits & they came out cold. We didn’t know if they were supposed to be warm so we ate them, still tasted great! The waitress and chef felt horrible for that so they surprised us with the pretzel schmear & it was comp’d. Phenomenal food! Ordered the bacon, eggs, smashed potatoes, corned beef & hash which were cooked to perfection! Dessert was the banana cream puff. We took a lot home but the servings weren’t extremely large. We just ordered a lot. The cocktails were delicious too! Service is by far the best in the South Bay! We’ll be visiting again.

We ended up sitting at the bar, because there was a vent right above our table blowing cold air. Once at the bar, it took a while to get service. But, the restaurant made up for it, comped our cocktails. Excellent customer service. Portions are a little on the small side, but tasty nonetheless.

Service was terrible - waitress never stopped at the table, had to contact multiple different servers to get what we needed. Waited 20-30 min before we even got our first drinks and that stayed constant all night. Was very excited to try this place, sadly will not be coming back.

A place that keeps getting better. New menu and new renovations since last time I came. Fried Chicken left me wanting more with its near perfect breading and cooked perfectly. If your looking for a quiet secluded experience than this might not be the place for you. 7/10 on loudness. Service was great until we got our waitress who could have worked at Denny's and I wouldn't have noticed the difference.

Dinner was excellent but we left the restaurant disappointed overall with the customer service and lack of attention to detail. I called ahead same day to make a note of my husband's birthday. We finished dinner and to our disappointment there was no birthday dessert or sweet for my husband as was guaranteed by the woman I spoke with on the phone.

I asked on our way out and the hostess confirmed there was no note on the reservation. Super disappointed in the service. We drove out of our way to spend this special occasion at MB Post and left feeling extremely disappointed.

The food was outstanding! The kitchen was very backed up- so we waited for about 30 minutes for food. The manager came over and apologized and comped our appetizers! Brought us a complimentary appetizer as well! He continued to check back and offered apologies again- we felt very well taken care of and understand Covid has caused kitchen and server shortages. Would not hesitate to come back!!

The new design of the restaurant is not the greatest - specially that one hidden dining room away from the bar.
The food is good but has been the same for the longest time, I wish they add more new items to the menu.

We are long-time patrons, and decided on an early NYE dinner at the bar. The service was excellent and the vibe was celebratory, but not crazy, so that was enjoyable.

Although it’s admirable that the consistency and quality has been maintained, it doesn’t “WOW!” like it once did. Is it me, or has it diminished? Hard to say, but otherwise, it was an enjoyable evening. Thank you!

We sat outside for breakfast and had excellent service from Max. My husband had the breakfast sandwich and he said it was delicious. I had the breakfast chimichanga and loved it. Everyone was safely distanced and they had heaters for those that requested them. Highly recommend.

So so good! Went for brunch and it was hands down one of the best brunches we’ve had. The selection is very small which helps them perfect each recipe because damn, it was good.
