Amazing, fried chicken is awesome
From the cocktails / wine selection to the food, it was amazing. A bit loud and seating is fairly close but place has a great vibe
Open Table's review options for Noise Level are, "quiet, moderate, and energetic." Open Table should add one more level: "TOO LOUD to even hear your guest across the table". I understand restaurant's want to have a "buzz" - a "vibe" - but come on, MB Post, when you literally have to YELL across the table to be heard - during a MONDAY night dinner, that's simply absurd. The food, service, and everything else was of course fantastic, but the BLARING MUSIC, which then causes EVERYONE ELSE TO HAVE TO YELL ALSO, completely ruined our meal and evening, making conversation impossible. So while I would recommend MP Post for take out, or for dine-in drunken screaming bachelorette party dinners, I would NOT recommend it for ANY other occasion unless you figure out how to have your staff become AWARE OF and monitor the excessive N O I S E L E V E L . . . (Your music system has a VOLUME control setting, right ????? ; )
The food was amazing. Went to celebrate our engagement. Couldn’t have chose a better spot
too much upselling. trying to extract every dollar
Amazing service and food is always great !
Mb post is always a great time!! The food this time was a little over garlic and over salted. Still delicious. Service was great and died off a little when we were trying to get the check. Always a great place to come!
Here's the thing - the food is really good - atmosphere is great - service super - BUT the reason why I actually drove from Venice (where we are the home of fantastic food) were your french fries - they had been amazing.
The back story is that the last time I went - my server told me they changed - I figured - great meal but I won't be coming out of my way to come back. Then I heard the fries might have been changed back. I needed to see for myself where we stood on "Fry Gate" ... Unfortunately I will not go out of my way any longer for MB Post.
I have never been disappointed here and it is one of my favorite places to eat when I’m in LA.
Excellent food and outstanding service. Great overall experience.
This past week, my boyfriend and I were visiting California from Brooklyn, NY. We are both in the industry and we love to eat! Our dining experience was so wonderful at your restaurant; our favorite in the week we were in the area.
Pork meatballs. HUGE (yes the balls were huge) however, so moist on the inside and a great almost crisp on the outside. It was wizardry. The polenta with the meatballs felt like I was eating silk. We ordered five small plates and it was SOO MUCH FOOD. The value of this restaurant is delightful. I felt like I was committing a crime with how much food we ate with how much we paid.
Our server was SO SWEET and professional. I loved the wine she recommended. Pinot Gris by the glass. She wore a flower in her hair. (Sorry I forgot your name ) Also, the whole restaurant was so well run. Support staff. Managers. Host stand. Awesome job.
We had a great experience as a large party of 9. The staff were all over the top attentive to any need we had and always had smiles and positive attitudes. The food was excellent and perfectly prepared. I will definitely return to try out more of the menu and the craft cocktails.
Waited months to be able to get a reservation at a decent time but it proved worth the wait.
Food is outstanding -- clever without being pretentious. A variety of flavors and preparations that you'll not find elsewhere. Service can get a bit overwhelmed by the always-full house and noise level, but was attentive.
Once again, MBPost delivers. 4th time here by popular demand: hubby's birthday. A little spendy but so worth it: food (delish! --fit for foodies), ambience, service extraordinaire.
We LOVE MB Post! Great food, knowledgeable and friendly staff - FAB bar and wine list. A fav with us.
My birthday brunch with family was one of the most memorable meals we have ever enjoyed - and we've been to some good restaurants. The winning combination of outstanding food and reasonable prices was remarkable. Server Rachel was great. I've paid a lot more for a lot less. I don't know why this chef has decided serving brunch at Manhattan Beach is his happy place, but I'm grateful it is. Thank you!
Excellent in most categories. A menu like no other restaurant with respect to creativity! Excellent service. Very noisy (but you go for the food). Get reservations otherwise you end up at communal tables (if that's a problem). Recommend reservations days in advance...it's always crowded.
Food great. Noise level a bit high for my ancient ears but upbeat and bright! Looking forward to another meal with dinner menu! Yummy!
Their scones lived up to the raving reviews. The servers were attentive, punctual and the service was great.
Came here for a Saturday brunch with 5 friends. The food was great!
We had a great meal. The sunchokes and duck confit pasta were superb. The gnocchi dish was a tad salty and rich but the pasta itself was a perfect texture.
BACON CHEDDAR BUTTERMILK BISCUITS. Fried chicken sandwich was good because of the chicken. Green beans as usual. Pork tacos could skip green salsa didn’t blend well. Matcha cocktail was good
Great location, fun atmosphere, the food was outstanding "steak,asparagus,mashed potatoes", and it wasn't over priced. I will certainly do brunch there again.
It was just okay. I don't get the hype. The biscuits are the reason I am giving two stars. Outside that...fried chicken was just white meat - so DRY. They need to learn how to brine. The Slaw - yuck - no seasoning, a little salt would help. Service, well I got the feeling the hostess, waitress and other felt they were doing us a favor by allowing us to eat there.
For the amount I paid - I will be going somewhere else to get good food.
amazing food as always! was pleasantly surprised to be accommodated with veggie Benedict even though not on menu
Dishes are meant for sharing. Meat and cheese plates are excellent.
This place always delivers. Great, innovated yet comfortable food, great service.
Some friends were in town and wanted some good food. Luckily we got reservations at MB Post on a holiday weekend! Dinner was everything they were hoping for and more.
We had six people who were excited to socialize, and food is seldom the focus in this friend group. Well, it was fabulous, and the food really added to our hangout time. Corkage was free (so we brought one bottle of red), and the charcuterie platter was excellent. Our server informed us that the cheddar bacon biscuits were #2 ranked nationally by Food and Wine magazine. We thought they were #1 at our table! We had a wide range of things: scallops, skirt steak, chicken leg, broccoflower, gnocchi and Brussels sprouts. All were delicious, surprised by how well-received the veggies were. We ended with ricotta soft serve and the terrific Elvis dessert and Intelligentsia coffees. Although it was loud, it was a good atmosphere for catching up. The service was friendly without being too cloy and invasive.
Best man management team in the South Bay.
Fabulous Sunday Brunch! The eggs Benedict was off the charts!
Every bite of every dish you can have here is better than anything you can expect in a restaurant, amazing food all around!
MB Post never disappoints. First time to the Sunday brunch and it’s as good as dinner. We got several plates to share - ricotta stuffed French toast, eggs crostino with mushrooms and Swiss chard, croque madam- all cooked to perfection. We also thoroughly enjoyed the Illy coffee.
It was great! The most AMAZING biscuits I’ve ever had!!!
Just Love this restaurant. Always Great.
Great food but slow drink service and petty over priced. Will go back but not frequently.
Great experience! Food was phenomenal! Went for Valentine’s Day and my girlfriends birthday! Our server Ashley was fantastic and gave us excellent service! Will definitely be back and request her!
Nice assortment of veggies, and cheese plate, good vibe, lovely red flowers on the tables, and no set menu ... refreshing for Valentine’s Day
Still tasty and a good value. Nice having something like this in MB. For a really great meal, you still need to travel to LA.
My wife and I have never had a bad experience there. The food is fantastic. The owner is very approachable and the staff treats you right. Thats about as direct as I can get. We always suggest MB Post when asked where to go.
