    I always love dining here. The menu is vegetarian-friendly, and there is not a bad option. We had the pretzels and fries for appetizers, both of which were outstanding. Entrees were shared plates of gnocchi and a salad. Ingredients were fresh, colorful, and our dishes were prepared to perfection

    Food was good, but we ate most of our meal w/o our wine which just could not make it to our table w/in even 20 mins from time of order. Very frustrating, mgr comped us a round which was nice but didn't help us experience the cuisine and wine program. Waiter handed us our check w/o asking if we wanted desert - place was busy initially but then not so much, so not sure sure what was up. Overall service was pretty poor was was good, that combo is not a good one we won't be going back

    So fun and delicious food but very loud. I couldn’t hear and it’s not loud music just loud acoustics. The food is yum. New items and great drinks.

    The food was excellent, though a bit spicier than indicated on the menu. Our server was superb - he fully explained the menu and how to order for our first experience. We were celebrating our 44th anniversary and had indicated so on the reservation request, but there was no acknowledgement during our meal (not a big deal, but why ask ). As the restaurant filled, the noise level of people and music escalated until we had trouble conversing. We will make a reservation early to avoid that in the future.

    Would have been nice to know at the time of booking if they were going to stop doing food at 3pm when we booked for 2.30 and didn’t get seated till 2.45. But if a rush to order and nothing for kids. They also ran out of a lot of things

    The MB Post always surpasses expectations. Not only are the famous biscuits amazing, they do an incredible job with vegetables. The flavors they experiment with are always cohesive and mind blowing. Chickpea fritters with pomegranate are a perfect example of the playfulness of the menu. We go as much as possible! Try to get a reservation cuz there's always a line. It's a locals favorite spot for sure.

    Can’t beat the cheddar bacon biscuits with honey butter! Everybody was happy and loved what they ordered. Our server was great, and made really good recommendations. As far as beverages, I wish they had regular iced tea that you could get refills on instead of a $5 small bottle.

    Party of 4 there for a "reunion" dinner. Our server was very patient and polite. They didn't appear busy for a Saturday only 3 tables on the patio. Not much light on the street side of the table. When dinner was served they brought 2 dishes, 5+ minutes later another dish, 5 minutes later the 4th. Needless to say, by the time we ate the food was cold. The lamb dish was undercooked but given how long and scattered it took to get our meals, she didn't complain. That said, the skirt steak was great as usual.
