Goes without saying we're great.. But green beans great, short ribs very spicy, Brussels sprouts yum.. Reservations are annoyingly hard to get ..we walked in this time and it worked!... More

We always go here the first night we are in town 2-3 times a year.Small plates to share.Shrimp, Scallops, Skirt steak grilled squid, lamb, and a great Mediterranean fish, Loup de Mar. Also the best grilled Brussels sprouts even if you don't like them-you love these. Great service, very helpful knowledgeable staff.

This was our first visit to MB Post and the menu is a little different but the vegetables were outstanding and so were the main dishes. My girls ordered the Shrimp Ceviche and I had the Pot Pie and all were fantastic and larger than they appear. Additionally the vegetables are meant to be shared. We recommend the Fries which...

I've only managed to eat here twice as it's super busy all the time. The food I have eaten has been excellent. The service is ok - they can come across as indifferent. Atmosphere is great.

If you are a yuppie kook from somewhere else you will probably love this place. It has really expensive everything and very small portions. I guess if you are privledged enough to get jammed in next to someone you dont know ... you will feal lucky.

Extensive list of wines & food choices, all served in small plates that you can share with your friends. Very cosy and a bit noisy, but the excellence is the food quality, I recommend the rib eye and the broccoli among others.

Because I'm ordering the bacon and most definitely the maple bacon cheese biscuits again! In addition the truffle-honey laced fried chicken- don't judge. It was all good and worth the extra run on the beach :-)

The food was very good and the service was above average. Only real issue is that they have about three or four more tables pushed into the dining area than what should be. Even when only 70% filled, the dining area always appears to be crowded and very confining as you really can't even move your chair without interfering with... More

Although there are some healthy choices on MB Post's diverse menu, expect mainly heavy duty caloric dishes, even among vegetable selections. Salt and oil reign supreme, but you can ask for light touches. Kale salad, couscous, sea bass, brocoflower (ask for light oil), scallops and grilled shrimp are among favorites, plus cheddar-bacon biscuits. Hangar steak was very popular at our... More
