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.

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

My family had dinner at this restaurant during a 4 day trip to Los Angeles. Make reservations if possible! The food was outstanding and made in unique creative ways. 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

I was visiting LA recently for work, and one of my dearest friends (whose tastebuds I trust implicitly) made reservations for us at Manhattan Beach Post. I am so, so glad she did. I arrived about 45 minutes early and decided to sit down at the bar for a cocktail, which was mindblowingly delicious -- I wish I could remember... More

The bacon cheddar biscuits were so good. My friends who live in the area took me here. The portions are small so order a few things. Nice atmosphere, all the dishes we shared were good. The chimichanga's were my fav out of everything. Nice decor, no the cheapest.

MB Post is always great. The bacon cheddar biscuits are award winning and never disappoint. The style is shared plates which his great cause you get to try tons if stuff. Make a reservation in advance. There is always a wait for walk ins. They also do an amazing weekend brunch. The only item I wouldn't recommend is the french... More

The setting is very nice, I like the openness of the restaurant, the waitress in training was very friendly and really knew her menu, as was her trainer.The food was okay...We tried several things and they were okay, lots of lemon flavor in most of the dishes. A bit on the pricey side.

This place was recommended to me when I checked out of my hotel – thank you Marriott Anaheim! I had a midnight flight and asked about dinner suggestions at Manhattan Beach (near LAX). What a great find! It was a Friday night and the place was very busy. I was dining alone so I was able to get in without... More
