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.

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

Service was slower. Some of the food was unbelievably good and some good but not great. Overall, still one of my favorite restaurants of all time.

We tried the Dine LA menu and it was a lot of food for 2 people, great value! We enjoyed almost all of the dishes but at one point we had 6 dishes (out of 8) served right on top of each other (after a long stretch of waiting) which made us feel we had to eat fast to make room. Perhaps they can work on timing a bit.

The wait staff was very informed and did a good job on suggestions. The bus staff while bringing out dishes was hit or miss on clearing dishes off our table which was a disappointment (especially when a person is full).

Despite these issues we are more than happy to give it another try after the Dine LA ends to compare!

Great location and close to the beach. The menu seemed underwhelming at first, as the selection was minimal and doesn't seem exciting. However, once you get the food on the table, the flavors were great and the dishes were very well executed. I thought "fried chicken? boring." But the chicken had perfect crisp and the inside was juicy and tender. Most of all, the flavor was perfect throughout each bite. Always loved MB Post and this was another reminder of why it's my go-to place in Manhattan beach.

MB post is good, it is just really loud. Better with a group of old friends than for a first date.

We were late so we sat at the communal table. The food was all wonderful and I loved the spicy margarita.

Great example of turning a negative into a positive. We got seated 30 minutes after our reservation - (not their fault, a few parties camped out well, well after the check was presented). The staff kept us apprised of the situation, apologized for the situation, comped some food, and did in no way rush us to catch up on their schedule. The hostess, manager, and server were all accommodating - way different than other places where you are made to feel that your reservation time is merely a suggestion. Food was great as always - had the pleasure of introducing folks new to Post - and we'll all be back for sure.

The food here was incredible!

Tried a couple things we normally wouldn't (Mushroom Mac and Cheese, Squid Ink Spaghetti) and a few we would, namely scallops and cheesy bacon bread. Everything was prepared with care and presented in an orderly fashion.

Our server was helpful without being pushy and the cocktails were well balanced and fit the meal.

We were torn between here, Little Sister, and Fishing with Dynamite since we only had time for one - I'm not unhappy with the pick at all and I would absolutely come back.

I've been here multiple times and have never been disappointed by the biscuits. They are the best! We tried the plate of the honey sampler and Spanish pork, both were excellent. For our main tapas, we had the scallops, squid ink octopus spaghetti, and green beans. The scallops were cooked to perfection and came with a sauce that complimented it very well. Our only disappointment was the spaghetti. It was nothing special and tasted like tomato sauce with some pieces of tough octopus. Overall though, a little too expensive but the food is great!
