Really interesting menu, with french onion soup dumplings and other tapas style fusion cuisine. However, the real treat are the inventive cocktails, such as the basil margarita.

Had an excellent meal here recently. The menu is a small plate sharing format. All dishes we ordered were truly spectacular. However, the portions were pretty small and the dishes were kind of pricey. Safe to say that with drinks it's about $100 per person. With that said, the restaurant is located in a very hip lower east side neighborhood... More

We went to Stanton Social as a group of eight visiting from the UK, after hearing great things from a colleague who had been to the venue. The atmosphere is very cool, with a nice cocktail bar upstairs and a busy restaurant downstairs. The food was very good, working on sharing tapas-style portions but at a high end, with scallops...

Just a simple small place with absolutely amazing dishes. Everything we ordered was so good - it is hard to single out what we liked best. But a couple of standouts were the Beef and Broccoli, and the red snapper tacos. If you want to dine in a simple yet very cool place, this may just be perfect for you.... More

I've been going to Stanton social for a few years now. The food is very good and I tell everyone about it. I often find myself wanting to come here more often as I haven't had a dish here that I didn't like. The service is decent but sometimes the staff can be snobby which is a big turnoff. The... More

First let me start by saying that the French onion dumplings were delicious. The other food items were also good. Service was friendly and attentive. The portions were very small though, especially for the price. I was shocked to see a $9 domestic beer. Compared with some of the trendier spots in S. FL, this seemed a bit steep. I... More

We were here for Sunday Brunch. Be aware that although we purchased an Amazon Local Special Dining Deal in August, we arrived and were given a Special menu for Amazon Local Customers that was not indicated on the offer! Also , all members at the table had to eat the same choices!!! Ridiculous! Unacceptable and quite unprofessional. Especially since you... More

The food and drinks here are amazing. A sure one to keep an eye out for is the Chicken & Waffles. They are to die for. The french onion soup dumplings are also very great. I highly recommend this place but keep in mind that it is rather loud so this is not the place to go if you are... More
