If your are looking for a cosy place to share some tapas and try many different dishes in one dinner, Stanton Social is the place! Loved the ravioli, of course the oignon soupe bites and tacos! To get the most of the evening come earlier to your reservation to get a drink on the second floor!

Great food. Lotsa' choices. Awesome deserts. Helpful waitstaff. But a little loud! Designed for socializing... shouldn't talking be easy? Go anyway...

Dined here recently, on a 'girls night out' and had a blast. I loved the décor; it had a trendy/glam feel to it, and was definitely was worth getting dressed up for. The food was creative, and tasty. Service was good, but not great. A lot of people seem to have complaints about the noise level, but it really is... More

Stopped into the upstairs lounge last night for cocktails before dining elsewhere. Don't know the bartender's name unfortunately but he was very friendly, and made amazing drinks. Very cute lounge area upstairs..will definitely be back and next time for dinner as well.

Our family of five had a great evening filled with laughter and good food. Servers are efficient, warm and know the menu very well. Imaginative cocktails and quite an impressive wine list. We had a long parade of dishes and each one of them hit the "mark". The French onion soup dumplings deserved the "hype," the sliders and lobster rolls... More

Stanton Social is a pretty trendy tapas (downstairs) and bar (upstairs) in the LES. I have been here a couple of times with friends and always had a solid time. The food is tasty and original; only real complaint is the overall acoustic instability (way too loud) and the tables are too close to each other.

I love Stanton Social, have been here many times for birthdays and other various events. The small plates are so delish, and it is a very similar setup to beauty and essex, and other small plate places. Every dish seems to be amazing, and the cute bar up the top is also lovely.

My daughter wanted to try the stanton social she recently moved to the neighborhood. We decided to take her without making any reservation. We had to wait 20 minutes for a table. After we were seated we ordered a few cocktails and some appetizers that were very unique and tasty. It was a young crowd and a very loud environment.... More

The tapas style dishes were absolutely delicious. We really enjoyed the dumplings and the dessert doughnuts. You have to book, but it's worth it.
