Great food and lively atomsphere

The menu is fresh and tasty, the cocktails and wine are reasonable, the service is free sly and attentive. It is best to have a reservation on weekends although with communal tables they can squeeze you in either early (before 6) or late (after 8:30).

My colleagues and I had a great time at Manhattan Beach Post. Chelsea (waitress) provided excellent service. She was very knowledgable and recommended a nice variety of apps and entries to get the full gastronomic experience...WOW, what an experience! Everything we ordered was delicious. We all left satisfied, some FULL, and looking forward to the next visit. This is a... More

This is a serious Foodie place with lots of amazing dishes that best idea is to order lots for table to get to try a lot of tastes Even communal tables are fun where you sit in twos and watch what others order

Interesting menu; delicious food. Went on a rainy Saturday (in LA? in JULY?!?) so quickly seated for lunch but imagine that was rarity. Nice looking decor, a little on spendy side.

This tapas style dining pace has great dishes to offer. We loved the brussle sprouts. However what put us off is the cramped seating. When I am paying a decent amount for a meal, i want to be able to have some privacy during conversations. The tables are so closely set that I could participate in conversation at the next... More

There seems to be a trend in the newer restaurants that packs their patrons in on top of each other. This makes for a less than enjoyable experience as your server has no room to get close to the table and yells at the other person(s) at any given table because there is not room to step in and talk...

A very popular eatery that takes a unique take on all that they do from seating, menu items and more. More of an adult place not so good for the young kids. Make sure you get the Buttermilk bisquits - Ridiculous and amazing. I had the Soft shell blue crab sandwich and it was very tasty. Service was good and... More

Small plates best shared with friends. Definitely have the chaddar bacon biscuits, the green beans, broccolli and the skirt steak and shrimp! I would have rated even higher if I had been able to hear. With all the hard surfaces, it was not easy to hear each other even though we were sitting very close together at a group table.... More

Everything we ordered here was amazing. I loved the pretzel, blistering green beans, brussel sprouts, scallops and skirt steak. The ambiance is great and the service is wonderful. The wine was also very good. It gets super busy so you have to go at 5 pm or make a reservation way in advance. There is a nice bar area as... More
