Chef/owner Chris Santos has teamed up with Tao owner Richard Wolf, and the James Beard 'Best New Restaurant Design' award winning firm AvroKo, to create The Stanton Social, a staple and neighborhood favorite of the Lower East Side.

The design of this three level hot spot tips it's hat to the neighborhood’s garment history and offers diners a culinary odyssey. All menu items are designed for sharing, offering guests a chance to experience multiple dishes and flavors throughout their meal. In addition to its 120 seats, The Stanton Social offers a lounge and bar on the upper level, featuring guest DJs. Dishes range from $9-$30 each.

Celebrated my friends birthday. We all had a great experience. Every single meal was excellent! The onion soup dumpling was very delicious and unique. They were able to add additional piece for specific dishes since we had five people and most tapas came with 3-4 pieces. Highly recommended!

Once again did not disappoint - I simply love taking friends here - the food, ambiance, and service are always outstanding. I also have a few food allergies and the servers are always super attentive to insure I don't order or consume anything that I cannot have - they are always incredibly gracious and accommodating.

Wasn’t an easy menu to eat something healthy. A lot of things were fried. Love beef sliders and Philly cheesesteak was delicious. Food was overly salty.

We were a group of 6 celebrating 2 birthdays and an anniversary. We had a great table on the second level overlooking the main part of the restaurant. We were able to talk and hear up there, the waitress (I think Jessica) made some great recommendations, was appropriately attentive/responsive and we LOVED everything we ordered. Complimentary champagne and 2 cupcakes with birthday candles capped off a most wonderful dinner! It was so memorable and we will return as well as recommend to others.

Delicious small plates for brunch. The signature onion soup dumplings were amazing. we ordered the Huevos rancheros, lobster benedict, chicken taquitos, meatballs, crab cake slider and the mac-n-cheese. All were delicious except we all did not like the mac-n-cheese which had an over-smoked flavor. Still would highly recommend and would go again. Waitstaff and service were great.

Unique place. Great atmosphere, great music, lively without being obnoxious. Creative food. Great for groups and special occasions. A little on the pricey end but worth it for a splurge!

The food was very good, the place had charms and our waiter was very nice, but they get a big minus for not letting us have the table before the whole party was there which meant two of us had to hang around and wait for the others while our table was empty and awaiting us. What kind of service is that? Makes no sense.

Yet another phenomenal visit to the Stanton Social! From the moment our amuse bouche arrived (spicey carrot soup YUM!!), we were taken on a dining journey. We have been enjoying the goat cheese and truffle pierogies for years and they always enchant the senses. The Notorious FIG cocktail was exceptional.

It was our first time at the Stanton social. The food was good enough, and our waitress was great but the menu was expensive and we didn’t find the experience to be anything special.

We chose Stanton Social because we enjoyed it so much a few months ago. We are a group of seniors. Three if us ordered the Chicken and Waffle dish. It was so hot the ladies thought it would be better to try another piece maybe they were imagining it. None of them ate their meal. There was no mention on the menu that it was cooked so hot and spicy. When the waiter came to take our plates he noticed the food was all left over. He asked the ladies if they wanted something else, they were not about to eat anything at that point. It was very disappointing.

Floor should be reinforced to decrease the noise and disturbance to other people

Two suggestions: 1) if you're going to clear the plates from one course, take the cutlery too, don't set it down on the table for "re-use" or because you think it's acceptable to do that; 2) don't try to clear plates from the table while people are still eating. I had higher expectations of this place. Whoever manages the floor should be sure the staff are all trained correctly.

Ordered off the restaurant week menu & got the French onion soup dumplings. Nothing disappointed at all. Will definitely go back.

Lekkere tapas! Leuke, jonge sfeer. Wel meer dan een half uur wachten zonder aperitief te kunnen bestellen, en dit ondanks reservatie. Aperitief moet aan tafel, maar dan komt eten er ook direct aan... het gaat naar mijn mening te snel! Vrij luidruchtig.
