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.

A fine dining experience. A little pricy and a little loud but all-n-all a very nice night.

First time here and we loved everything from the ambiance to the service to the food. All top notch. The buttermilk biscuits, the mussels, and the cavatelli were all exquisite. Also ordered a cheese and coppa which were accompanied by lovely accoutrements such as house made jam, mustard, apples, Marcona almonds, and pickled grapes. A wonderful new discovery that we will definitely return to.

I love the food at this restaurant. The drink menu is also fabulous. The atmosphere is lively. The music is actually good music but they play it way too loud. Everybody was commenting about that it’s very difficult to have a conversation.

The food at MB Post is consistently great, as is the service. We love the biscuits, the hamachi was great, so were the scallops, thought the pork belly it rests on is a little odd, the skirt steak was amazing, and the asparagus and kale salads divine. The service is always on point, friendly and top notch. MB Post quality of food and service plus price usually adds up to a formal and stuffy dining experience, but that is not the case here. The restaurant is beach eclectic and the ambiance is more casual than refined.

This was our second dinner during our trip to Manhattan Beach.

A special call out to the manager, Tracy and Chef Jeremey as they went above and beyond to provide for a wonderful dining experience all around. Tracy was able to find us the perfect table and was very personable. Chef Jeremey gave our son a first-hand look of the kitchen, a fantastic experience that he won’t ever forget.

The atmosphere was energetic with an overall great vibe. We tasted our way through much of the menu, all of which was exceptional, you can’t go wrong with any choice. Our servers were very knowledgeable of the dishes and were able to make great recommendations, especially for our son with severe food allergies.

From start to finish, we can’t recommend it highly enough.

The food is over priced / we ordered a charcuterie board (only 2 kinds of cheese, an 1/8 of an apple, a couple pieces of meat) barely enough for two people for $45.

The food and service are great. Unfortunately, the tables are very close together and the music is pretty loud. So good for a big group, not so much for an intimate lunch/dinner.

Highly recommend! Fun atmosphere with super helpful staff. Menu is full of tasty choices making it impossible not to order multiple dishes and share across the table.
All the staff were helpful and knowledgeable about the dishes.

It had been quite awhile since the last time that my wife and I ate at MB Post, and I must say that I really regret not going there more frequently. The food was great, the service was great, and just an overall really good experience. Can’t wait to go back.

I've eaten hert so many times because the food and drinks are delicious. The service on our last visit was terrible however. It took 10 minutes before the server even came to our table and another 10 before she came back to take our order. It's also always very noisy, so I'll only go with friends who aren't bothered by that.

Hip, trendy restaurant. VERY noisy - difficult to have a conversation with the person I was dining with. The food was all good and we enjoyed sharing the small plates, but it wasn't exceptional enough to warrant a return. Wait staff was very good and very responsive.

Food was good. Salad was overdressed and far too salty but they were so nice about it and exchanged it too! Overall good, only rated it below a 5 because my friend and I were basically yelling at each other the whole time in order to be heard. Not fun.

Food is amazing, but we’ve never had worse service anywhere. Four hour dinner that should have taken two. Our waitress forgot about us twice where we were left for literally an hour with empty wine glasses and plates.

Again we absolutely love the food at Post but don’t know if we’ll return unless it’s take out after that awful experience.
