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.

Pros - food was almost all excellent. Only complaint was that my eggs benedict was not runny (overcooked) which is a shame because it was delicious otherwise. The food was great - the mimosa was great. We didn't have a reservation, but we got seated anyway (make a reservation if you want to go here). Cons - waitress was kind... More

Served by Anna who explained the specialties and portion sizes...Bacon Cheddar biscuits, La Quercia Prociutto and Scallops with Dashi all were unique with great taste. Wine can be bought by the glass (6oz) maybe a little expensive. An enjoyable experience. No need to book but it is popular

8 of us enjoyed a 4 course meal (including biscuits) at the communal table. The staff is very good and clearly interested in your experience. Quick to sort out what you need beyond food and make your visit feel special. All the dishes arrived perfectly plated, and as a share two orders per entree was the perfect qty. Be careful... More

Touted as the best in the area we booked and after great meals the previous two nights nearby we were looking forward to dinner. The first issue we had was reading the menu, it was smallish print in a dark room. We put it down to our aging eyes, until we saw the 30 somethings at the next table had... More

This place is just ok, it's a great place for sharing. We had everything the server recommended. The food is ok, nothing spectacular but also nothing wrong with it. It's worth a place to check out if your here for an extend place. But if your here for a short time way better other places. However like I said great... More

This meal left me speechless. The food here is unbelievably delicious. I had dinner with three others - so we tried half the menu. The one thing that popped out the most was the pomegranate couscous. It was fresh, light, refreshing, and it went very well with most of the other items we ordered.

We were here for brunch. OM G. You have to try those cheese and bacon biscuits. To die for. Pancakes were extraordinary. And the peach coffee cake yummmmmmm. You should make reservations and ask not to sit near those shrieking toddlers that the mother did not have enough sense to bring outside

Manhattan Beach is full of restaurants. Some great, some not so much. This goes in to the great column. The only negative thing I can say about it is the noise. Man the place is loud. Maybe the restaurant could consider just a slightly different playlist at the height of the dinner hour? Led Zeppelin II is a great record... More

Manhattan Beach Post has everything you would want in a Bangin' Brunch - open concept decor, trendy hand-crafted cocktails, shareable fresh food, music...but it is very busy. And with busy comes long wait times, crowded tables, overtaxed servers, mis-timed courses and cold eggs. So, I guess we saw the potential more than we actually experienced it. The staff was eager...
