Heard a lot about this place (saw it on Hell's Kitchen segment). Tried it out since I live near by. Was not disappointed. Ordered a variety of mini plates to share. Some better than others but none you'd return. I liked the seasonal ones like the chicken pot pie. Can't go wrong with the cheddar cheese bisquits.

It was a great Catch for breakfast during our Manhattan beach visit. For me, Manhattan beach was the prettiest one among all LA beaches And definately a Must go spot. This cafe is the best cosy place for breakfast with it's location, food And it's positive vibe.

While in Manhattan beach on a recent business trip, a colleague made dinner reservations at the Manhattan Beach Post, based on its high ranking on TripAdvisor and its awesome-sounding charcuterie options. When we got there, the place was busy, always a great sign. We proceeded to order to share - each dish is meant for two or four people to... More

Had an early dinner while on vacation in the area. The restaurant is spacious and welcoming in a very urban way. It was full by 5:45! Service was nice and efficient. The waitress recommended an awesome Chardonnay and knew the menu very well. We had an assortment of tapas. The Brussels sprouts were delicious as was the butternut squash risotto.... More

Went, to this restaurant last night and it was delicious. It's a small plates, communal dining situation. We were four ladies and we started with the Bacon and Cheese Biscuits with maple butter, they were to die for. We then had the shrimp and pork dumplings, skirt steak, lamb belly and a few other items. We cleared our plates and... More

I was on business a little while ago and decided to just eat at this restaurant while there. Four visits total...experimenting with a number of things on the menu. I sat at the community tables or the bar which were fun...except for the time I sat with three salesmen who seemed to not have the ability to get out of... More

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 with marinated olives and assorted... 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.
