Manhattan Beach Post
Delicious food! Close to the beach so 5 stars for the great location!
Enjoyed the entire experience! First time there, came highly recommended. Fabulous meal. Get the biscuits!
Don't know which was better...the food or the service! Tatyana was really fabulous--attentive and so knowledgeable about every menu item! Great creativity in the cuisine, too. I WOULD like to have had some kind of salad on the menu. Plenty of veggie options...but no salad greens!
Food was delicious! Service was outstanding. Only complaint is the noise level - but I am very sensitive.
Overall, this was a great experience. The music was louder than I would like, at times we barely heard the server and the conversation between ourselves. The food was excellent!!!
Way too noisy. Had to talk so loud to have a conversation with the three other people at our table. Had no voice next day. Music was so loud. They could have turned it down a lot and still kept a great vibe without causing people to scream.
Food and service always exquisite. We’ve been coming here for years and the food is consistently wonderful. We try to have one dinner and one brunch a month.
Great time & great food
My go to restaurant for a fabulous meal!
I have been here three times before and this was by far the best experience I've had here. The server gave us two good recommendations for appetizers and what we ordered for the meal was excellent. I would definitely recommend this place and also come back again.
So...the food was AMAZING. The biscuits are mind bending. My friend had the scallops and spicy green beans. I had the hamachi and Brussels sprouts. So fantastic. Service was really really slow and a little arrogant. It was also deafeningly loud. No matter—-I would go back over and over. It was that great. Wear headphones and be patient!
Food was great. Service was great (except we caught a couple items added to our bill but they were promptly removed when we pointed them out). Atmosphere is fun but the noise level was unbearable. Way too loud! We struggled having a conversation with our friends across the table and none of us suffer from hearing issues. Make sure you ask to not be seated under one of the many speakers throughout the restaurant, unless you like drowning out the conversation. Granted, the music selection was pretty good.
Food was exceptially well-prepared and great tasting. Service was "Over-the-Top" as our server (Tatiana), found some off-menu items for one of our friends who had some unusual dietary requirements. Would get top marks if there was some sound deadening included in the "live" decor. We'll be back nontheless...less talking, just eating!
Although we were not seated until 40 minutes after our reservation, the hostess and server worked hard to make up for it. Some guests wouldn’t leave after paying, unfortunately we’ve done that too so we were understanding.
Food was very good and ambiance uplifting. Very busy on a Sunday afternoon
Only reason for the 4 stars was an obnoxious table next to us. Everything else was wonderful. Biscuits are better than your imagination.
Apparently the food was a little delayed (didnt even notice) and our wonderful waitress came out with another (free) appetizer to apologize. Was not necessary, but definitely appreciated! Quite possibly the best service ive ever had.
We went to the post but didn’t stay—took some biscuits to go.
When we arrived without a reservation they said that they could only seat us at the communal table—after sitting down we realized it was a bit crowded and noisey — and because my friend wasn’t feeling well I asked to be moved to a quieter table (there were at least three empty tables that would have worked...)
I was told That i needed a reservation for those tables so I quickly made one on open table starting in 15 min and spoke with the hostess that I now had a reservation.
Still she wouldn’t seat us elsewhere ...
We patiently waited about 15 min until our reservation started while we continued to look at empty tables and no one else in the lobby area waiting for those tables. she just didn’t seem to want to accommodate us? She finally got around to offering us another table... this time by the kitchen..... which we declined. So we continued to wait — wondering why she wasn’t seating us where we wanted to be seated? meanwhile a small group with a reservation later than mine came in and were promptly seated at a table that we would have been happy to take if it had been offered. So we left!! It’s not the first bad experience I’ve had at the post. I also gave them a bad review the very last time I was there. I don’t know why I bothered to go back. I will not return. My primary complaint: They don’t hire professional wait staff but they want to charge high prices and act as though they are a high end restaurant... they’re not. My second complaint: they pack in people like sardines and their noise level is very high—with an open kitchen that adds to the noise...don’t go there on popular days/times if you want to be able to talk to others.
Ate here for rainy day Brunch, our server Holly was Kamai’aina and very outstanding. So the biscuits are absolutely necessary with that special butter and homemade potstickers just wonderful. All the other brunch items are terrific including the fried chicken and blueberry pancakes. MB Post is just a hip and cool joint to hang out by the beach.......rain or shine!!!
We had a wonderful experience (minus one issue)! Our waitress was very helpful and made excellent recommendations. Only downside was when we were talking towards the end of our meal, they were taking our dishes and glassware away from us (I had to hold onto mine so they wouldn’t take it). Considering how much we spent, they could have been more patient and allowed us to finish enjoying our time and not feel awkward. Despite this, we will definitely go back again soon!
Great food experience, would definitely go back
The food was decent but way too overpriced. The buttermilk biscuits were delicious though.
The food was great but the noise was too loud, and for no reason. They didn't even need the radio but yet there it was blasting away. We also were at a table that was wedged right in-between a few other tables. It was a nice night, but I wouldn't recommend it. Can do better for the pride
It was nice but loud
Took our niece there for her birthday. Fantastic food and the service was 5 star!
Wish Santa Monica had something as great!
Overall good meal. Cocktails where nice and wine list was good. Only dish that lacked was the tortellini. Didn’t come together. The lamb belly was awesome.
One of my favorite restaurants. The food is superb! Creative. Complex, interestingly blended and balanced flavors and textures. Lots of vegetarian- and vegan-friendly options.
Came to celebrate a birthday and the food was amazing and the vibe in the restaurant was great. Service was quick and we loved each plate that we shared.
Creative food and drink selections and great service!
Our table wasn’t ready but staff made sure we were comfortable and took care of our drinks. Great service from Tracy and Angela. Food delicious as always!
Food was amazing ... perfect portion sizes to share ... great service. Skirt steak and the gnocchi where delicious ....
Food was very good as always. The service was slow and not quite up to their usual standards. Although we had indicated on the reservation page that we were celebrating a birthday no mention was made oft it. Would have been nice.
Greeted promptly and was kept updated on table reservation. We were seated probably 20 some minutes late. We were offered communal seating several times but opted to stay with a table for 4. Wait staff was great getting us water and drinks as well as food order. Food presentation was great and taste delicious. Very pleased overall. Only complaint was noise from music blaring from bar area.
We had an amazing time celebrating our engagement at MB Post. We only thought one dish was under seasoned but our waitress was amazing and replaced the dish with something else. Our entire meal and service was fantastic. We even got a delicious surprise dessert at the end to celebrate our engagement. This restaurant does not disappoint. Get the biscuits or else you will miss out!
I love MBP! Excellent service by Tatiana and all the staff because it’s obvious it’s a team effort. Every dish was a delight It was a Birthday celebration and the almond cake dessert with orange ice cream was a wonderful surprise. The Birthday boy was very impressed and will definitely go back!
Great, as always! The combinations of flavors and the quality of the food and the service cannot be beat!
Best biscuits I have ever tasted! Interesting dishes!
delicious food and great ambience. server definitely forgot our appetizer and tried to cover it up. I do wish something was comped. We were sat for 50 minutes before receiving any food. other than that, great experience. the food is amazing - order the fried chicken!!
Been there several times. The food always delicious and service great! Server very friendly and helpful. You have to try the cheese biscuits and brussel sprouts!
We went for the Valentine brunch with our family. The food was great and the service was excellent. We would definitely come back.
A great experience. Great food, service and ambiance. This time we had the biscuits (a MUST), soft scrambled eggs and bacon. Sounds simple, but everything has its extra flair and really delicious. So many things on the menu I’d love to try! Highly recommend for a good brunch in MB!
Love Friday lunch - great menu!
