    Very disappointed. Took relatives from the east coast for Sunday brunch - they are "foodies" so I thought this would be perfect. My breakfast "sammy" had pork sausage that was really undercooked - almost raw in the middle of the patty. Sent it back and it was replaced by the eggs benedict, which were so-so. My wife's meal was also marginal. My cousin ate only a quarter of her salad, Nice waiter and good cinammon roll.

    Outstanding as usual. Can’t say enough about the Fried Chicken and Steamed Black Mussels. Perfect Beer to go with those is the Hefeweizen locally brewed by Two Coast. Of course the Bacon Cheddar Buttermilk Biscuits are a prerequisite. Great service by Maria on the patio. On a very sad note, I must report that the Nashville Yardbird no longer comes with the MBP tater salad………instead you get collard greens, sorry but blah!!!……….I mean I actually ordered the chicken just to get their potato salad, it was that good. You got to have a side starch to soak up that grease in my opinion and the three stents in my heart are solid proof that I been eating alot of fried chicken since being stationed at military bases in the Deep South…….so I so pray that management will bring back the potatoes salad and ditch the greens!!!

    Love this place! The updated breakfast chimichanga was outstanding. The burrata / Barley / pickled cabbage salad with pomegranate seeds was a revelation... especially to balance the bacon cheddar biscuits. My only complaint with the experience was with Open Table. It is IMPOSSIBLE to make a reservation using Open Table on the MBpost website if you are on an iPhone. The scrolling is broken. The only way to make a reservation was to open up my laptop. This is a huge problem that they should fix. I am sure they are missing a LOT of reservations since it doesn't work at all on an iPhone

    Our family used to dine here often prior to Covid. After three years, we made our way back! Sadly, it’s not the same and the people I had dined with also agreed. Many of the items felt like it was drenched in sauce and was extremely salty. After spending $200, we were disappointed.

    Went for the cheddar bacon biscuits, have been craving them since pre-Covid. Sadly, they were over cooked and really browned and dry. Also, server had warned us that food comes out "as it's prepared" so not all dishes arrive at the same time. One of our party of six did not receive her meal as the rest of us were nearing finish. They rushed her an order (breakfast sandwich) and the egg was barely cooked on bottom, and pretty much raw on the top. They comped her dish (as they should) but it really put an unnecessary damper on our celebration. Had the server been more attentive and available, we kept trying to gain his attention, he would have known much earlier that we were short a meal and acted in a timely fashion. I'll still recommend to a friend. Maybe an off day for the server?

    Menu was FULL of delicious options. MUST order the biscuits. To sue for! They are HUGE - easily split across 4+! The skirt steak and spicy paprika chimichuri was outstanding. The Elvis dessert was to DIE for. Overall, a great meal. Drinks are pricey. Somehow spent $29 on two canned BEERS! 4 plates, 2 drinks and tip was $120. But, the food was seriously YUMMY!

    This was a truly memorable experience. When staff realized we were celebrating my aunt's 70th birthday they really went out of their way. Lots of thoughtful attention. Let us linger and made her feel very special. Even came with a champagne round about the time you'd expect they'd be wanting to turn the table. Great group. Wonderful experience.

    Service (as usual) is exceptional. Food is always good, interesting & engaging. The peach & heirloom tomato salad was delicious. The dineLA feast is thought provoking and good. The only downside was that the pork tenderloin & the vegetable underneath the shrimp were both too salty: we could not finish either. But the span of flavors is fun and thought provoking. We still like MB Post get much; we think Fishing with Dynamite may have better execution.
