Awesome Food

One of the best meals we have ever enjoyed. We began with beautiful charcuterie board. We ordered two cheeses, a goat and a cow, both from France. They serve a prosciutto from Missouri that literally melts in your mouth, as good if not better than any I have had in Italy. We rounded the board... read more

The food here is delicious. They have one of my favorite Mac n Cheese I've ever had. Their cured meat and cheese plates are great for sharing and perfect with a few drinks. I highly recommend making reservations. Its also loud, dark, and most of the time crowded. But if you're looking for good food then this is the place.

I've been here a few times and it always exceeds my expectations. I especially like the biscuits, the steak with red chimichurri, the brussels sprouts and the grilled shrimp with lentils. They also serve 3 oz wines which is great when you have to drive home. My boyfriend is obsessed with the fried chicken. It can be a little loud... More

This place is cool and the hip place to be in Manhattan Beach. You order small unique dishes to share between 2-4 people. It is a bit noisy but great service by the staff. Highly recommend!

I was blown away with this place. The food was amazing! The layering of flavors made my mouth sing with delight. It was noisy, but that didn't even detract from my delighted senses. I would highly recommend this place. But it would be wise to book!

I had a wonderful dinner with a friend at Manhattan Beach Post while I was in California at the end of January. I would highly recommend the restaurant. The restaurant was extremely busy when we were there, but service was very good, attentive without being intrusive. We had a number of questions about some of the cocktails and some of... More

I really enjoy MB Post and can't recommend it enough -- for both brunch and dinner. The staff - from the host to the servers to the bussers - were friendly and efficient. In fact, when I had to reschedule a dinner reservation because we were running late, the host accommodated our crazy schedule three times. For more details and... More

this place offers a variety of meals which are generally not available elsewhere. the meals are interesting and tasty, portions are ok. They assume that you will share your meal which is ok for 2 not for 6....they don't claim to deliver the meals to the table at the same time which is a bit awkward. The noise level was... More
