Another great meal: Brussels sprouts, couscous, and scallops were solid! Lamb belly disappointing: too salty and overly sweet. Highlight: ribeye with truffle butter! Custard and cardamom soft serve desserts ok.

A little pricey as others have mentioned. Also loud - louder than I would have preferred. Ok, those are the negatives. Now for the positives. The service was excellent, the food even better. And different things on the menu. We had duck prosciutto, scallops, fries, short ribs. All excellent. Great service, decent wine list, good drinks. We will be back.

Went there for dinner on a Thursday evening. Although the place was half empty we had to wait quite a long time until our food was served. The noise level was disturbing, the service somewhat robust. Food was imaginative and of good quality but expensive. Vines even more overpriced. Overall not an experience we will want to repeat.

Let's start with the cool aesthetic, an old post office turned into a hip, causal eatery with friendly staff right in the heart of MB. Then, the excellent food and drink offerings are plentiful ... the cheddar bacon biscuits are a must to start off. All of the starters (cheese, cured meets) high quality, and thoughtfully prepared - not a... More

The neighborhood restaurants were all full, but we managed to get a pair of seats at MB Post just before the line-up started. The atmosphere, we were at a communal table, set the tone: friendly and fun. The food was superb - don't miss the bacon-cheddar biscuits - and came in sharing portions. Service was attentive and fast.

Our group of four sampled the charcuterie offerings, crispy fried chicken, enormous french fries and cheddar bacon biscuits during an early afternoon lunch. We enjoyed the casual atmosphere, beautiful indoor/outdoor setup, and the friendly staff. Every dish had a delightful twist, exceeding our expectations.

So many good things to say, where to begin. First, the food is incredible. Due to the small plates approach, especially if you are with a group, you can try multiple different things each time you go - and they will all be good. So many different options make it really easy to get a wide variety of types of... More

Just ate at the Manhattan Beach post and had an amazing experience. Went with my husband, mother, and grandmother. We ordered about half the menu and shared everything, the food was fantastic all around, the atmosphere was good for everyone. What really took it over the top was our waitress Tatiana, she may be the best waitress we've ever had... More

Everything at MB Post is top notch. Incredible, inventive and delicious food. All in a wonderful atmosphere - very close to the beach in Manhattan Beach.
