Nice

When we arrived, we realized we should've called for reservations. Since we weren't in a hurry, we were ok w waiting, we were seated outdoors, no complains whatsoever!! The place may be a little loud for older folks!! Great vibe overall!! ;)

We made reservations well in advance (weeks!) for a party of 7. We had a lovely round table near the front. 3 locals and 4 out of towners (Dallas). The bacon cheddar cheese biscuits with maple butter deserve the accolades they get. (we fought over the extra biscuit!) We each took a plate for ourselves and then had a bunch... More

cheddar bacon biscuits are a definite must have, other good bites included lamb belly; scallops come with a bacon marmalade! Tends to be a bit noisy so hard to carry on a conversation. Best to make reservations and have a table rather than sit at the communal tables when you do walk in.

Every dish we tried was amazing. I can't remember the last time there was not at least one hiccup in a meal. MB Post had a perfect 10. With that said the effiecency of the host was bit bit weak. If the wait is an hour, just say so and your customer can go to the bar. Between both hostesses,... More

We loved the fresh air in the restaurant, the food was great, the biscuits are to die for, the dumplings were very good. Good place to share different kinds of food and still fill up! Love the vibe there.

While driving to Palos Verdes to visit some friends, we stopped by Manhattan Beach and came here for lunch. This restaurant is conveniently located one block away from the Manhattan Beach Blvd with both indoor and outdoor seating available. I ordered a salad for the appetizer and the Peruvian steak with fries and it was quite good. I would recommend... More

I love small plates places as I enjoy a variety of food. But usually with that comes big bills as things add up quickly. This place is no exception. However, the food is all excellent! They have some maple, cheddar, bacon buns with butter that sound really weird, but you have to get them! They are unbelievable. And there are... More

Brunch was over-the-top delicious. We ordered to share: fresh chopped salad, pork&shrimp dumplings, to-die-for crispy, French toast topped with ricotta cheese, maple syrup & fresh stewed cherries, broccoli flowerettes roasted to perfection. The open kitchen format lets one watch the masterful chefs in action. Community & private tables make for instant fun. Oh, handmade exotic cocktails are a crowd pleaser.... More
