Food never disappoints here. The wine list is a bit pricey. I always have a hard time paying $20+ for a glass. Our server was lovely and they did a very nice job of spacing out the tables and making the outdoor seating look like it was part of the restaurant.

We were running late and the hostess was great about it. Food was delicious and fresh, chef himself came out to talk to us, and our waitress was awesome. We had the hamachi appetizer, asparagus/burrata toast, skirt steak with amazing sauce, and halibut. Couldn’t have been much better

Awesome new eggplant dish (Vegan!) on the menu-also don’t miss the halibut! Excellent service by entire staff.

Would love it if they would bring back the Brancaia Ilatria to the wine menu for Fall!

Very special place. Food is spectacular. We were there for brunch. They did a wonderful job setting up the patio. Our server was terrific so warm and friendly. We couldn't resist the cinnamon bun and when she heard it was my birthday it was on the house!

Very very good food and drinks. Smaller plates a little on the pricey side, but worth every penny. Best salmon I’ve had in a long time. Outdoor dining is pleasant.

Steve gave great service and the Nashville fried chicken was generous and crisp, if not spicy. Those cheddar biscuits never fail to please and the potato salad was better than average. All outdoors, no less!

excellent menu selections and the wine and drink options were fantastic. Would certainly go again to try other items on the menu. Our server in training was amazing, and I thought she was a pro at suggestions. The entire service staff was spot on and timely.
Truly made my 60th birthday with my beautiful girlfriend memorable.

From beginning to end the service was outstanding! I wasn’t expecting it to be that good just because of COVID and all but the hostess and the servers constantly checked in to see if we needed anything . They were great about make dietary modifications for me as well! Highly recommend this place for brunch now!

I went to MB Post to celebrate not being married anymore. An odd thing, I know.
The service and, more importantly, kindness, I received from Tracey, Jessica and Amanda was above and beyond what was expected. A perfect combination of professional and personal, I felt completely at home dining at my old local “go-to.”
The food was exquisite, but familiar. Hamachi fresh and spicy. Fried chicken crispy and mouth-watering. The pickles tied the whole dish together. I’m a stay-at-home mom and I cook a lot. I know how hard it is to make good fried chicken.
Rosé champagne to top it all off. Why the hell not!?!?
Please go and support our local businesses. And leave them the hell alone with these ridiculous noise and supposed spatial violations.
Everyone is doing their best. Truly.

We've always loved the food and wine list at MB Post, but rarely went, because the noise level inside is so high that it doesn't make for a very relaxed dining experience, and even difficult to converse with friends. With the outdoor seating for the pandemic, that issue is resolved, so we were able to enjoy the exceptional food and well-selected wines by the glass in a much more pleasant, relaxed setting. Very enjoyable and we'll definitely be back!

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at MB Post (as we do for most special occasions.) Even out on the patio with social distancing it was still a wonderful experience. The food is consistently excellent, and the service is amazing. We had salmon that was to die for, and the ribeye, of course!

During this pandemic, it's always scary to venture out. This great setting in the open air with super clean tables and a detail on each table as to how the restaurant has gone above and beyond to ensure the guest's safety made me feel immediately comfortable. Menu was great as always and even with a limited seating time, we still really enjoyed our brunch. Thank you to management for doing a great job!
