Description: Manhattan Beach Post (M.B. Post), a soulful, highly personal restaurant by Chef and co-owner David LeFevre brings a playful, artisan menu of small shared plates, hand-crafted cocktails, and small production wines to the South Bay. M.B. Post is the culmination of 15 years of work, travel, and finely honed technique in the world's most vibrant culinary communities by Michelin-stared chef, David LeFevre. Renowned for his fine-dining experience and seafood mastery at Water Grill, LeFevre returns to his culinary roots with a more rustic menu, built to be shared and served in a gracious and welcoming environment.

We checked out MB Post because of a locals recommendation. We were not disappointed. Some of the menu changes pretty on a daily basis but lots of great tasty choices in food. The Mrs. and I loved the brussels sprout vegi dish. We also had a shrimp ceviche dish that was very good. The wine selection is quality with plenty... More

A really fun and creative restaurant. We had the biscuits (a must), the brussel sprouts, green beans, and the skirt steak. All delicious. Go early or have reservations as it gets crowded.

The bacon cheddar biscuits are worth the trip alone, but the deliciousness doesn't stop there. Creative and tasty cocktails abound. Start there. Then, of course, the biscuits. From veggies, I would recommend the brussel sprouts and kale & quinoa salad. If they have them, try shrimp and grits (I think it was a special) and maybe skirt steak or pork... More

My kids took me to the MB Post for breakfast and it was a real treat. We enjoyed the cheddar bacon biscuits, the French toast, beef cheek hash. Rich and delicious required a walk on the pier. We sat near the open wall windows and enjoyed the sea breezes. Definitely a great way to spend a father's day.

Was here with a party of 3, so we sat at the long group high-tops which was fine for a group, but not very romantic if that's your goal. Really loved the food, we sampled a lot of different items and no complaints. The service was great and their specialty drinks will likely make you happy as well. I'm sure... More

Great food, great atmosphere, great service. Arrived at 6.30pm for dinner with no reservation. Seated straight away at communal table. Lots of choice, portions generous. Love, love, love !!!!! Save room for dessert.

If you are into foam, emulsions, 12 course prixe fix dinners with ingredients you can't pronounce then MB Post is not for you. If you are into fresh, tasty original fun food, in a perfect setting, one block from the beach then this is the place. Awesome food in a fun, friendly atmosphere
