The best part of this place are definitely its cocktail drinks. I had a couple of bad experience with the customer service with the waiter hanging up on me while I was trying to make reservations. I also went here for brunch and they ran out of biscuits by 11am. Who runs out of biscuits at a new-age soul food this early?!?!?!

This modern, haute-cuisine restaurant may be the first of it's kind in a black neighborhood in Los Angeles. The warm, modern design of this establishment is welcoming and long anticipated (as a longtime resident of this neighborhood). The menu reads a mouthwatering list of New American and Soul Food fusion plates. The first time I went, was with a big group so I was able to sample several dishes to get an overview of tastes. Honestly, I was less than impressed. It seemed like every dish was a few ingredients away from being really flavorful. Simple, fresh and relatively light (as light as some normally really fattening and heavy dishes can get) ingredients seem to be at the philosophy of this chef's culinary approach, but this can still produce poignant natural flavors and exciting combinations. His food just doesn't hit the mark. Even more, the soul food inspired dishes just ruin soul food. I've spoken to many people that love this place and I've spoken to people that share my sentiments. I went back again to be supportive and give it another try and it reconfirmed my lack of desire to come back. The food is good enough. I recommend going to try it but it is certainly not one of the best restaurants in LA.

Great local restaurant. My breakfast selection was fresh and delicious. Herb potatoes and chicken apple sausage was tasty and the service team was both friendly and attentive! It was a beautiful day and as lovely as the restaurant is inside I opted to sit out on the patio which was great. Plan to return for brunch again & check out the happy hour!

It's a nice place shoehorned into a diner sort of space. It's about three times as expensive as, say, Roscoe's (one tip-off: the prices are given paris-style, "12.5" instead of "12.95"). But once you accept those things, the food is quite good, the service is fine, and the vibe is positive. Liz and I went with two 11-year-olds; we ordered one catfish and one chicken, with greens, corn salad, and mac-n-cheese sides, and one piece of cornbread with honeybutter to start. This was just right for two adults and two small preteens. I tasted everything but the mac, and it was all great. Since when do I uncontrollably shovel greens in? I dunno, it appealed to me somehow. The chicken was juicy and had a strong rosemary? dusting. For dessert we all split two brownies (molten, with strawberry bits, ice cream, and other good things). I really liked it, and we'll be back someday.

My family and I went to Post & Beam to celebrate my cousin's graduation and we really enjoyed our meals. Many of us ordered the ribs and absolutely loved them. I believe that the menu is seasonal as I no longer see the ribs that we ordered on the menu, but they were unique in that they were served with a yellow BBQ sauce (North Carolina style). It was also great to see Chef Govind Armstrong cooking away in the kitchen. I would definitely return to this restaurant!

This is my new local go-to restaurant. The food is fresh (lots of local produce and meat), tasty,and inventive. The kitchen has a lot of good technique and the service is warmly professional. The owners' commitment to providing a comfortable and classy community living-room is rock solid and has won my 100% loyalty Questions? Just start wit happy hour. You will be hooked.
