Went here after checking out the yelp page since the menu looked pretty good. The atmosphere is very nice, perfect for a date. At the waitress' suggestion we ordered 5 different plates (tapas style). The plates that were especially good were the French onion soup dumplings and the Mac and cheese with chorizo. The only reason I won't give it... More

This was our fourth visit, but never for brunch, the perfect decision. Visiting friends in the city, we met friends here who have never been. The service was top notch, the brunch selection plates were plentiful and all sounded very appetizing We chose about 12 different Selections and wanted to repeat them and order additional selections but we were to...

went on Saturday Sept. 6th with a 7:00 reservation for 4 - we were seated right away. I didn't think the music was too loud and I loved the setting. The server explained the menu and said the plates were for sharing, he recommended 8 plates for the 4 of us. We ordered the the goat cheese pierogies, the onion... More

The music was a bit too loud for our taste. Food was very good and service was fine. Do not order more than 4 dishes for 2 unless you want to leave turning around like a ball!

French onion soup dumplings, Philly Cheesesteak slider, chicken Taquitos and fries were all DELICIOUS. Our server was also very friendly. We found that no matter what way we looked at it, the Fried chicken n' waffles was horrible. We were advised four to six dishes would work. We were full after four. Doggy bag for the last. As commented elsewhere,... More

This is a small plates restaurant, which I normally don't like because I usually end up leaving hungry. Not at The Stanton Social! Everything we tried was excellent. The red snapper tacos, the French onion soup dumplings, the kale Caesar salad, the old fashion meatballs, and the big sexy burger. There were four of us, and this was more than... More

This place offers a sophisticated atmosphere with a tapas style menu ... which is great because you'll want to try a little of everything. The items are creative ... be sure to try the French Onion Soup Dumplings served on a skewer with Gruyere cheese and the Potato & Goat Cheese Pirogues. These were just a couple of the items... More

We came here on a Saturday night. Our table wasn't ready so it was suggested we go upstairs to get a drink while we wait. We each had a couple of watermelon, ginger margaritas while we waited. They were delicious! Being our first time at this restaurant, we wondered how they would find us as the upstairs bar was packed.... More

Loved the cocktails and small plates. The french onion soup dumplings are AMAZING! The doughnuts are delicious and they made a great cappuccino too. Fun, casual atmosphere.
