We enjoyed being at The Post very much. The service was perfect and friendly and the food was delicious. There are banquets/booths were 3 of us enjoyed great conversation under nice lighting and a warm ambience. This will be my go-to place as a resident of Los Altos.

We had lunch in the outdoor deck area of the restaurant. The Post has done an excellent job of making their deck very attractive and accessible (my husband is in a wheelchair) at the same level as the sidewalk. The food was delicious with a nice presentation and the service was friendly and attentive.

No masks worn by many workers. Cool had his around his neck the whole time there. Many employees wore below nose or off.
It distracted from our experience.
Salmon dish was missing sauce.
Biscuits were obviously reheated which made them inedible and dry.

We are a group of 7 that get together every few weeks. We like cocktails and appetizers. The weather was perfect to sit outside. We were seated immediately. The appetizer menu was varied. We had spicy calamari, tempura shrimp,fried cauliflower, sirloin sliders and to share off the menu, pasta a la carbonara and tacos; mushroom, salmon, chicken and pork. Everything was delicious. Usually something is off but not last night. They had a nice selection of cocktails too. Everyone commented on how good it all was.
The service was excellent. All the food arrived in a timely manner, no big gaps. Even the cocktails, which normally take along time between order and receipt, arrived quickly. We all discussed during dinner that we wanted to come back which is saying a lot as it’s a 45 minute drive for closest of the group.

Very mediocre food, and especially disappointing for the price. Service was okay. The patio is pretty decent, and wouldn’t recommend eating inside unless you’re there to watch sports. Overall super disappointing and would not recommend

The Post was very enjoyable. It was a lovely evening, so we ate outdoors with our dog. (Apparently, they’re so dog-friendly that you can actually dine inside with your dog!) I had one glass of wine, a Pinot Noir, which was very good. The sliders were yummy, but the Pasta Bolognese was lacking seasoning, and I wished there had been more substance to the sauce. There wasn’t much meat in it, and the dish could have used more sauce overall. My husband was happy with his salmon, and we both loved the homemade ice cream. It was very good. It was a busy Friday night, so the service wasn’t very attentive, but they got the job done, and we were happy.

Great spot for Sunday brunch with the family and pups on the patio. Nice basic menu including old fashioned corned beef hash which I was craving. Crispy chicken sandwich was very tasty.

This restaurant is located on the main part of the Los Altos downtown. Great location, easy parking. The food was solid; corned beef hash was tasty (although our server got my eggs incorrectly even though I repeated my request to her twice and she stated it back to me). The service was mediocre. We NEVER received any water despite asking for it two or three times. And after our food was delivered, our server never returned to check in about anything until she brought the bill. No other wait or other staff came by either other than one person walking around refilling coffee at which we asked again for water and the request was forgotten. Not sure I’d go back. This is the second time we’ve been and the food hasn’t been memorable and now that we’ve experienced such poor service, it’s not worth it.

I marked service down, but I know it’s hard to find workers and it was an issue of quantity not quality. It was a pretty busy lunch service.

Small portions on daily special crab salad & avocado toast. We were still hungry. Was a special event weekend (Art & Wine Festival) but didn't know prior. However we did arrive on time and it wasn't not crowded or busy yet. I mention only because we did advise in advance we were celebrating our anniversary but there was no acknowledgement of this during our time there or any special table placement when we were seated. We moved ourselves to a better location later.
