I was here with colleagues and we loved it. Great meeting place, good tapas dishes to go with tasty drinks. Nice staff. big table on second floor was private and great for our get together!

Try it hen in NYC, lots of places, but this is a sure thing.

Excellent choice of very modern NYC dishes which lend themselves to sharing. Can be very busy and quite noisy. However the staff are helpful and friendly. Caters for the locals and tourists alike and is a place that New Yokers come to from parts other than the LES.

As a first timer at Stanton Social I had no expectations and was literally blown away by the food, atmosphere and by far one of the nicest experiences I had in NY.
The place is a little loud but for good reasons, it is packed with people who came to enjoy.

Large groups are always a tedious task for any waiter/waitress. Our waitress was very attentive and very quick with filling all requests from any of us. She was great with making sure all water glasses were full and made sure we had everything we needed.

Now to the food.
The french onion soup dumplings were AMAZING. I could smell the cheese from where I was sitting. I could have just eaten an entire giant plate of just that.
We also had: Hand pulled Chicken Arepas, Mushroom & Fontina Quesadilla, Wok charred Edamame, Sriracha pea crusted salmon, hanger steak & frites.

Of all that food, my favorites were the dumplings (obviously), edamame, and the steak & frites.
Absolutely delicious!

Loved our experience at the Stanton Social. From the delicious cocktails in the upper bar, to the dining room meal, our taste buds were jumping with excitement. Its a busy place, but they are on top of it. I really enjoyed the basil lime martini, the French onion dumplings and the beef wellington. Amazing!
