Have been wanting to eat here since watching Chopped for years with Chris Santos as Judge -- everything from the food to the service was top notch - we had the French onion dumplings, tuna poke, red snapper tacos, grilled octopus, chicken and waffles, and spanikopita --- all of it was great, be advised that are all tapa size (perfect...

Stumbled across this great place on a recent trip to NYC. We didn't book, but had no problems getting a table. Staff were very helpful. We chose 5 dishes, which was enough for the two of us, and a couple of cocktails, which were great. Would definitely eat here again.

Stanton Social continues to be one of my favorite brunch spots. Located on the Lower East Side, it's in a fun neighborhood. This is a great spot to meet up with friends, bring out of town guests, or have a date. I love the decor - modern, industrial, yet warm and inviting. The tapas style menu is perfect for brunch....

Came here on a sat night, made reservation on same day, which was shocking. This place is very crowded & loud . It's a tapas bar restaurant. So we ordered 7 dishes . Everything was good, my rib was just ok. French onion soup dumpling was yummy as well as the fish tacos. My husband was hungry when he left.... More

I went here with three friends. We ordered five dishes which were more than enough, though we were advised to order seven or eight. It would have been too much. The wasabi tuna was delicious, as were the chicken and waffles. It wouldn't be a good place if you were in a very large group though as I think it... More

Second visit and it is still delicious. It can be very loud and busy though so not a great place for romance.

We ate here a few days ago for lunch, and really enjoyed the food. We weren't aware of the tapas style of food until we ordered, but really enjoyed the flavours of the food. We shared 6 dishes between 4 of us, and they were all great. We especially loved the chicken taquitos. It definitely wasn't enough to fill us... More

We were invited to Brunch with my Partner’s colleagues and friends. We’ve planned on going earlier in the year but we’ve been so busy (and admittedly, Henry rather eat my home-cooked food than venture out to eat.) So, I tweeted Chef Chris Santos to expect us and get ready for some holiday pictures at his restaurant – the Stanton Social!... More

Recently treated my 3 sisters to holiday brunch at The Stanton Social. I purchased a special through Amazon local deals which was 7 small plates for 2 people, along with 2 cocktails per person or a bottle of champagne. Since there were four of us, I bought 2 vouchers and each of us had a wonderful 7 course brunch with... More
