The Stanton Social
The brunch at the StantonThe brunch at the Stanton Social was wonderful. Each course was inventive and full of flavor. We sampled several different sliders, goat cheese potato perogies, pull apart orange bread, and chicken and waffles. All of which were excellent. Although famous for the french onion soup dumplings we found them to be just average. The drink menu is extensive with lots of good options. The tables are close together but what you would expect from a hot spot in NY. I will say the noise was not energetic but deafening so if you are looking for a quiet romantic spot this would not be the place to pick. Overall a very enjoyable experience and we will be back. .5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMfood was excellent and amazingfood was excellent and amazing cocktail list. cucumber vanilla martini and the strawberry mulled drinks were phenomenal!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter than ever!Awesome food, beautiful people, great service - still my favorite place in NYC!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is amazing. EverythingThe food is amazing. Everything we ordered was delicious (wine, meatballs, shrimp and grits, areas, taquitos, smores creme brûlée). The service was very good as well. The atmosphere is also great, but can seem crowded when the restaurant is near full capacity.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing Food With Great EnvironmentMy friends and I took my parents to The Stanton Social when they were visiting NYC. The food was wonderful, between the five of us we split about 10 different items as they are small bites and meant for sharing. The French Onion Soup Dumplings were to die for and everything else we ordered was delicious as well. This is a great place to go if you are with a group so you can try a bunch of different items. I can't wait to go back.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFANTASTIChands down one of the best restaurants in the city. get the french onion soup dumplings, brisket tacos, and chicken/waffles... all to die for!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMAMAZING!INCREDIBLE food!

Would definitely come back!5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!This is a perfect way to start or end your night. The fact that the food is mouth watering is only half the reason why this place should be the top of everyone's list. The atmosphere is chill, laid back beautiful decor. I went on a Friday night and the music was perfect. Mix of hip hop, house. Really, really awesome. I can't wait to go back!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMTaste Sensations at its bestThe 2nd time I have been here. I love it because for a party of 4 you order about 8-9 different dishes and share. The variety of choices is amazing and all the food was great. The onion soup dumplings are a must. Great service. They don’t rush you at all but they just keep coming with the food. As soon as you are one with 2 of your dishes they bring 2 more. Save room for the hot donuts with sauce and I had to order the red velvet twinkie...FABULOUS!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was delicious (speciallyThe food was delicious (specially the french onion soup dumplings, the tuna tataki, and the sliders).... the place is perfect for groups and a lot of fun.

You just had to ask for it.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMcould have spaced the foodcould have spaced the food delivery a bit better...courses came out too fast4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, error when payingExcellent food, and courteous service. Our waitress was friendly and knew which dishes to recommend which would complement the other plates we had chosen.
Only fault was on settling the tab the guy was in a rush and he put the wrong amount on both cards. An annoying end to an otherwise excellent dinner.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMStanton Social is just a consistentStanton Social is just a consistently great place to go and it is still my favorite restaurant!I love that after all of these years it hasn't changed - the food is still great if not better. The restaurant and bar and the sidewalk too are always packed with people who are having a wonderful time or who're anxiously waiting to get their party started. Whether it's a party of 2 tucked a way in a quiet corner or a large party of 6 living it up in the center of the restaurant - it's a fun, energetic place where a good time is meant to be shared with great food and libations.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptionalexcellent-never disappoints! One of my favorite restaurants in the city4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways greatAlways enjoyed the food and ambiance, never disappoints!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMSometimes slightly quirkySometimes slightly quirky restaurant formats (in this case tapas) can be a bit more miss than hit; not here, where we enjoyed every dish we chose and had a good value bottle of wine. Great for a group night out. Only slight criticism was that the tables are pretty packed in if you are not in a booth.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was outstanding. TableFood was outstanding.
Table bussers and food runners worked very hard and efficiently.
Wait staff was more social with each other than I would expect for this type of restaurant. (lots of hanging around the service station) The last time I went the service was better.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great time. They bringHad a great time. They bring the plates to you in courses so everything comes to you hot and fresh. I let them know we were celebrating a special occasion, and they brought complimentary champagne to the table. The short rib tacos were my favorite.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was absolutelyEverything was absolutely wonderful, we ordered way too much cause we just wanted to try every single item on the menu! Would love to go back and try more.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food and excellentOutstanding food and excellent waitstaff and manager. Host stand, reservation times, and how they seat guests who are waiting (and where they are waiting) need some improvement. Did not like the upstairs bar as a place to wait.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGenny SecretWe had a geat time at Staton Social, food was great, service was excellent.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI will be backGreat menu.

Everything was great!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMYummy and comfyWomen love to share food and this place is the perfect place to experiment with all kinds of great flavors and textures. My friend and I had a fantastic mix of sweet, cheesy, tangy and spicy dishes, and they were served in intervals so that we didn't feel overwhelmed with dishes. They pack the people in, but even though we were a few minutes late, they didn't give away our table. Good service, yummy food. I'd recommend it to my friends.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!This place lived up to its reputation. The food was absolutely delicious and fun to share.

Any time I have small plates/tapas anywhere else, nothing compares. Went for brunch recently and everything was to die for. The lobster benedict was the best I'd ever had. The little pancakes, and as always the meatballs. This place is a must for anyone in NYC3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGroup BrunchIt's was my husbands birthday and 4 of us decided to go to Brunch.

Food was quite tasty although it all came out one dish on top of another, which made us feel rushed and limited our table space. Music was loud but not unbearable. Tables are VERY close together3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the waitWe made a reservation last minute for a friend's birthday. When we got there it was packed! We waiting 30+ minutes for a table then finally got to sit in the lounge where we asked if we could just dine there. Because I work in the food and hospitality industry I understand that waiting even with a reservation is expected. The maitre d' was so sweet and handing all the demanding customers and phones all at the same time with professionalism. And since we had to wait so long they were kind enough to give us a round of drinks. And the food is worth the wait!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my new favourite places!Been coming to this place every visit to NYC. We usually arrive in the evening, check in to our hotel and jet to SS for a late night feast. EVERYTHING on the menu is worth a try except the grilled cheese sandwich whose bread was too hard and dry. Drinks are STRONG which is always a good sign. The room is tight and intimate as you come to expect in space-challenged NYC but the atmosphere, ambience, service are everything you want and get consistently here and the upstairs bar is awesome. Can't say enough good things about this place!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
