The biscuits - it's all true

I've been reading about these legendary biscuits for so long that I thought there was no way they could live up to the hype. They really are that good. We were there for brunch, and also enjoyed a killer bloody mary. It was so crowded and hectic that we saw a little less of our server than we would... read more

Really good service in a nice atmosphere with creative well priced food for the level, lots of care and knowledge evident in everything from food, to drinks and service. A casual welcoming vibe without pretentious setting focussed on quality. Bucking the trend of bland oversize and unhealthy US cuisine. Really really good value for money

We went with a large group, and the staff did a great job of helping us to find the right combo of small plates so that everyone had a great time. I would definitely go back for the scallops!

We enjoyed a delicious meal at Manhattan Beach Post--our menu choices were mainly guided by the folks next to us who were so enthusiastic about what they'd just eaten that we were persuaded to copy them. So we had the honey-truffle fried chicken and the cheddar biscuits. Both were yummy. We also ordered a couple of vegetable sides which were... More

tapas style food, great place to spend time visiting and grazing through multiple appetizer size servings. We were looking for a sit down dinner place, this is not the place, but the décor is super cool and would recommend this for a night of conversation, drinks and appetizers

Close to the pier. The menu is fun and includes interesting tapas-sized dishes. I had the Albacore Tuna Tataki with grilled pineapple, yuzu and Serrano - yum! You must try one of their signature breads...we had the Bacon, Cheddar, Buttermilk Biscuits - amazing! They have Fee Fi Fo Fum fries which are the size of bread sticks. We did not... More

My husband took me to MBP for my birthday. The atmosphere is at once rustic yet trendy too. Most people are seated at shared long tables, but you can request a smaller table just for your party. They have an extensive wine, beer, and mixed drink list. We were told to order about 4 to 6 dishes to feed the... More

Their specialty are small plates. Most of it is very good. The green beans are best, the brussels sprouts are over cooked and the deserts are outstanding.

We have eaten here numerous times in the past year and never have been disappointed. The food is always done perfectly and the service is beyond excellent. Be sure to get the breads. They have three: a pretzel with the most amazing made-in-house horseradish mustard; a doughy naan (flat bread) that is served with spicy yoghurt; and bacon biscuits served... More

Normally I like to review in order of the meal but I have to give special props to MBP for a most awesome blend of delicious flavor profiles in a dessert.
