“Yummy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2014

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.

“Good time. Good food. Trendy but not overly trendy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2014 via mobile

I'm not the type of person to really clamor for trendy spots but this place was good. I love the small plate format and the quality food. Usually in a trendy restaurant experience I am on high alert for poor execution. But this place delivered. I loved the Philly cheesesteak and the Kobe sliders. The dessert was great. The waiter had a chip but oh well. We had a great time!

“This is not your NYC experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2014

If coming from out of town- this place is acceptable. Because you are in the Lower East Side, and you can get a reservation.
If you are looking for good food, friendly service, and value for your money, don't go here. In fact, given the cool neighborhood this is in, you can find so much better. This restaurant is so passé, and they know it.
My advice is- the more attitude you get in a NYC restaurant, the more the place sucks.

“Fantastic Night”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014

The Stanton Social has been one of my favorite restaurants in NYC for many years. We love the decor, the vibe, the friendly and fun staff, and the food (served Tapas style for sharing) It is all amazing and interesting. We ordered so many different things and there was not one complaint about anything. We all had a different favorite however we all loved every morsel and every sip.
