    Manhattan Beach Post for a customer dinner was a great setting. It was loud, energetic and the food was solid. Highly recommend the Prawns with the Patatas Bravas - definitely a stand out.

    Creative, inspired and very varied menu of Asian-inspired tastes. High points were the Japanese eggplant, spicy beans and mussels. Oh, and the chicken liver toast. And pro tip: they can make many of the signature dishes without meat.

    MB Post is one of our favorite restaurants. The food and service never disappoint. The skirt steak was perfectly cooked medium rare. The shareables were creative and flavorful, and we loved the strawberry shortcake dessert. It's easy to recommend. The only thing we didn't love was the noise level.

    The food was amazing - if you like to sample lots of amazing flavors, this is a great place for you! Lots of super innovative and delicious shareable dishes. I did find the wine by the glass quite pricey, but their cocktails were worth every penny!

    Came here for Easter brunch and it certainly did not disappoint. My new favorite menu item is the lobster avocado toast - I would eat that every morning if I could! Breakfast sandwich was okay, but the bruleed French toast and quiche Lorraine were quite delicious. The service was friendly and on point, as usual.

    Visiting Post was a nice experience. The food was good but not outstanding like we had hoped based on past reviews and research. Nothing negative to say really just that it was a good meal but nothing that impressed us. Overall a pleasant and enjoyable dinner.

    Amazing food I was in love with the arepa with chorizo! The skirt steak was cooked to perfection with maximum seasoning. I did enjoy myself two cocktails and I can say they were amazing so happy they had green charteuse. Overall what also made my bday celebration amazing and not forgetful was our server Eddie he was on point and amazing. We will be adding this place to our rotation.

    It was our first time at MB Post. The food was amazing! We had a party of 6 and ordered small and large shareable plates, as well as a charcuterie board. The fried chicken, rosemary gnocchi, scallops and pear salad were stand-outs, as well as the amazing warm house special biscuits. We enjoyed our cocktails very much too! The only issue we really had was the noise level. We shouted at each other the whole meal. It wouldn’t deter me from going back though, the food was that good.

    I'm looking forward to my next stop at MB Post. I had a reservation for 3 at 7:15 on a Saturday night. We arrived a little early, checked in and waited at the bar for our table. The bar was crowded and the staff busy but our drink order was taken quickly. Cocktails were delicious, #Blessed will be my go-to here. It took a bit longer to get our drinks than we had anticipated. We waited for our table about 20 minutes beyond the time of our reservation and we had to circle back to the host to inquire how much longer before we would be seated. Our table was in the corner next to the kitchen and a service nook, loud and busy; next time I'll make a note to request a table away from the kitchen. It's a boisterous restaurant and the corner amplified the energy. We ordered the carrots, gnocchi, green beans and biscuits---all were incredibly delicious with the green beans being our favorite. Our server was prompt, courteous, food arrived without a long delay. We enjoyed Lola cab sauv with dinner. I gave the 4 stars for the service at the bar our need to check on our table. Overall a great experience and I will certainly be back.

    I come here all the time, especially on weekends after golf. And today was just not the same. The infamous bacon was average, scant rosemary and absolutely zero chili flakes. I take pics of all my food because I love food, and you could see the difference. Im left so disappointed. Even the mimosas for the table had mediocre juices today… and sadly the biscuits were on the dry side. What a bummer. Maybe I need a new post golf brunch location.

    Where to start? Our server told us they serve food “family style”. To me that implies the orders are large enough to share. There were 4 of us, an order of scallops was a total of 3. Food tasted good but nothing special. It was supposed to be a thank you dinner for our friends. I was borderline embarrassed. And most importantly, they better do something about the bathroom tile. WTH tiny mosaic tile is not meant to be floor tile. I wiped out like it was black ice. Will not go back.

    The food was delicious! I had scallops and the pear endive salad. They were both outstanding and the salad was big enough to share around the table. My husband had the skirt steak and the naan and enjoyed both. Our server was Sebastian and he was perfect- very attentive without intruding and with good recommendations.

    Food was ok, biscuits obviously their best item. Menu is eclectic, somewhat tapas style despite being asked to order all up front. Risotto was way too salty, hardly ate it, and was surprised staff didn’t question why when taking away full plates. Server convinced me to order a beer, after 10 minutes I learned it’s not available. Order a different kind, 5 minutes later I learn it’s not available. Server convinced me to get a Kolsch, comes out at borderline room temperature. Who wants a $9 beer at room temperature? They own simzy’s and other restaurants, so should have the ability to have a more normal menu and stock standard alcohol at 7pm on a Saturday. This place has a lot of what it would take to be good, but is missing the mark on food choices and basic logistics.

    Amazing time as always. The skirt steak was cooked perfectly medium rare as ordered. Also, the cinnamon roll has been modified—it’s smaller now, but a much better size in my opinion. Two people can split it and still eat their meals and the roll is cooked through in the middle while still soft and just crispy on the edges. So so good!

    We showed up 5 minutes early to our reservation and still had to wait 20-25 min before being taken to our table. For the price I paid for two people, I think that was ridiculous.

    I had a reservation here with my wife for a Valentine’s prix fixe dinner. The hostess team were immediately attentive, and as soon as we checked in, we were greeted and brought to our table. Our server was polite, knowledgeable, & made rotations often, and she was quite observant for timing of checking in with us. In between each course was a short gap, which was excellent service to us, especially on a busy holiday evening with a full house of customers. The signature cocktail was perfect, each plate was smaller in proportions, but not too small! I enjoyed the variety very much and everything tasted so flavorful the presentation was spectacular. As far as the final bill, I was satisfied and did not think it was too expensive given the neighborhood of restaurants which can be quite overpriced in Manhattan Beach. Highly recommend this place, and will return

    Very disappointed. Had a Valentine’s prix fixe meal that was grossly overpriced, and low quality for a restaurant of this caliber. Small bland dishes, and my tenderloin was cold when it arrived. It was also my wife’s birthday, and all that was done for her was they stuck a candle into the blob of ice cream in the dessert. At the end the check was stuck into someone’s dirty notebook with their handwritten scribbles inside. As a local Manhattan Beach resident it’s sad to have this kind of experience at one of the more premium Downtown restaurants.
