We ate here for a celebratory meal with a group of 7 people, and really enjoyed it. It's designed for small plates/shared dining, and we got a little carried away, and ended up ordering too many dishes, so I have plenty of things to comment on. The cheddar bacon biscuits were scrumptious but filling (1/2 biscuit per person would've been... More

Wow!!! An outstanding meal and service to compliment the perfect meal. We ended our honeymoon at this fun place in manhattan beach CA. Tapas galore with real farm to table ingredients. All small plates were delish and pleading to the eye. A must go when in the area!

We had reservations but ended up having to wait about a half hour due to a SNAFU The staff and manager were profusely apologetic, bought us a drink and comped us their perfectly sinful bacon cheddar biscuits The brunch of the fried chicken and the madame sandwich was outstanding, the bloody marys very well done and the overall experience really...

My colleague and I had a fabulous eating experience at dinner time. We showed up unannounced on a Wednesday and we're promptly seated. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. We both had the scallops and split the curried mussels. Excellent choices. The cheese biscuits are 'out of this world'! Seating was family style, which is fine but the noise level... More

The vibe at this beach spot rocks. It is a tapas restaurant with dishes built for sharing as well as tables for sharing. Adult bevvies are delish as is the food. Menu is chef-driven and printed daily. Make sure to check out the hand-written notes on the menu to guide your selection. Reservations are possible.

Atmosphere, service and food -- all around excellent. Menu consists of "small plates" for sharing. Base menu included, with daily specials available. Cheese, meats, bread, veggies, seafood, etc options. Everything we had was excellent. Not a place you would stop everyday as it is a bit pricey, but everything you get is excellent and worth the price. Would definitely return.

Friend suggested this place and I'll be back. Killer biscuits laced with ham and cheese with a maple butter. Probably the best mussels I've had outside of Brussels. Cooked perfectly and the sauce was drinkable. Tasty 20 month old Missouri ham was terrific. Great place for sharing plates.

This quirky MB stop is not to be missed - truffle honey and bleu cheese, charcuterie, squid tagliatelle - everything on the menu was magnificent and our waitress acted as a guide the whole night. Great spot for birthdays, great wine list, everything was truly exceptional.

There are many great places to eat in and around LA. We were thrilled when our son, a local, selected Manhattan Beach Post in Manhattan Beach. The place has a great vibe and both private and communal tables. We started with the cheddar biscuits which my husband and son loved (I am not a biscuit person). We then ordered chicken... More
