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.

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

Manhattan Beach Post offers an inventive menu of terrfic small plates, with creative and unusual combinations that work beatifully. Roasted brussel sprouts with hazelnuts were excellent; kale salad with quinoa and pinenuts was another stellar choice; morrocan barbequed lamb belly was our favorite - tender, with a delicious marinade and delectable Japanese eggplant. Squid with hummus was good, although not... More

I recently (after many months of deliberately staying away from this location because of it being 'trendy') ate dinner here with friends. From an atmospheric standpoint its an interesting blend of communal tables and 4 tops with a rustic and cool look for a former post office. Setting aside the superficial side (look) of things, now lets talk substance. The... More

Made reservations for a Friday night dinner as we were staying one night by LAX before a cruise. The food was very good and we even had 2 picky eaters in our party that really enjoyed the food. The cheddar bacon biscuits are delicious. We had a great waitress who made good recommendations. Try the salami imported from Spain it... More

Had dinner with several colleagues while in town on business. We sat at one of the communal tables. We had a great time. The service was very good, and our waitress made some great recommendations. Overall the food was good. The focus was on quality ingredients, not too many flavors in a single dish. My only real gripe was the... More

The wine list was great, and atmosphere was perfect. Our server was also top notch and was eager to answer questions and recommend items from the menu for us. Overall wonderful... More

One of my favorite places to take out of town guests. Dishes are small and interesting and meant to be shared. Atmosphere is lively and somewhat loud during evening time. Either make a reservation far in advance or come early as there is usually a wait. There are communal tables that open up fairly quickly and a bar area where... More
