Manhattan Beach Post Ratings and Reviews
Coo;, fun place. Excellent food, but a little pricey for what you get. The service was good, but a little on the pretentious side. The place was quite loud with people talking and the background music was played really loud, making it so you had to yell to talk to one another.
MB Post is our favorite restaurant in the South Bay. We went there this time for a birthday dinner. Great cocktails, excellent food and outstanding service. We even got to meet Chef LeFevre this time! Everything we've had on the menu has been delicious. We highly recommend the beef ribeye with black truffle butter, brussels sprouts, and especially the bacon cheddar buttermilk biscuits with maple butter.
So I met a friend here on Saturday afternoon and thought to make reservations, thank goodness, the day before as this place was hopping the whole time we were there. Food was really good and unique although portion sizes a little on the small size. Service was excellent and our waitperson, Tatiyana, is second to none. She showed up at just the right times, kept our drinks filled and had a smile that I'm sure has melted many men's hearts. I know it did mine! Great for people watching and a great location just steps to the beach.
Pleased with the menu. Was at MBP for last summer’s DineLA and some menu items then made their way back to this latest DineLA. MBP improved on last DineLA’s execution of certain courses. First off, the Thai shrimp is a good addition. Couscous could have used more acidity but good nonetheless. The roasted vegetables are delicious. We would have wanted more of the coconut sauce, however. The lamb belly is so good and rich. The addition of rice and veggies is also good – helps with the richness of the dish. Scallops were good, the garnish was
missing /better last year. The crispy skin trout was delicious (last season’s was breaded – good too) – it’s light and perfectly cooked. Skirt steak is good as always. Liked the soft serve ice cream with peach.
DineLA menu was absolutely great. Four courses for $39 plus tax and tip. And each course is very large. I didn't expect how large each course would be and would honestly suggest that for each pair of diners, order 1 DineLA prix fixe, 2 biscuits a la carte, and 1 dessert a la carte. Possibly another entree could be ordered depending on how hungry the diners are. So value is definitely there for DineLA; it is more expensive outside of those few weeks each year.
Onto the actual experience, everything was great. Food is delicious, especially the biscuits, which are absolutely necessary for every visit. One biscuit per person because you won't want to share. Service was great and the setting is great. I will definitely return.
I saw very high review on yelp so I want to have a try. But the food makes me disappointed since the taste is not really good except the fish and beef. The way they cook it is also not traditional which makes me feel weird. The service there is pretty good! Another thing is very hard to find a parking space! But I think it’s normal for restaurant around beach
My husband and I had a fabulous dinner at MB Post during LA Restaurant Week. It was only $39 per person, choosing 4 items from an extensive list (most were on their regular menu). Everything was well prepared and delicious. Service was also outstanding. Our friendly, knowledgeable waitress gave very good suggestions. Highly recommended!
I’ve had some great experiences with food and service in the past I will not return after my last experience. The waitress was very passive aggressive and dismissive. She had a fake smile, cold vibe, and a poorly disguised diva attitude. I felt like I was serving her. She had a hard time understanding that we wanted to wait on the ice cream until after the overpriced dumplings. I don’t know why things coming out whenever they are ready is my problem when I’m ordering a 100 dollar brunch but she made sure to let us know that she was doing us a huge favor by honoring our request. Eventually, she did what needed to be done. The music was obnoxiously loud.
Came for the 39 dollar dinner set menu. Food was splendid: got the chicken thigh, skirt steak, scallops, and Thai shrimp. The portions were also quite large too so definitely was an amazing deal. We also got the biscuits which were awesome but only had two for six dollars. Finished off with the ricotta soft serve which was the perfect ending. Would love to come back again
Our waitress Rachel was really the best. Checked on us and our food and drinks every now and then. All of her suggestions was right on. The one and only order that we didnt like, she took back and removed it from our bill without us asking and she gave us free dessert that was outstanding.
