About

This restaurant is permanently closed. 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.

First I’ll say the hostess was very nice and welcoming but the way we were treated by the waiters and waitresses at Stanton Social was unacceptable. We are 3 professional African American women who were excited about visiting the restaurant but the experience left me feeling hurt and disappointed. We were mistreated, overlooked and minimized. Because of this experience I do not want to support Vandal, Beauty of Essex or any of the Tao restaurants. If you don’t see any value in the support of black women than I will not spend my time or money. I will not suggest the Tao chain to friends or colleagues. I’m sorry that women, especially black women, are still undervalued as customers.

The food was great. Dumblings were 10/10. Drinks are really nice too, just a bit overpriced compared to food.

Love Stanton Social. By far one of our favorite places. Food is always excellent. Service also perfect. Just be prepared, reservations are necessary, and seating always runs late. This last time, we waited nearly 45 minutes after our reservation time to actually get seated.

Food was so delicious but pricy, but it’s worth it. The chicken and waffles were amazing, and the ravioli was great too. I like how it’s all appetizers to share instead of courses. Very full so make reservations beforehand.

We had a phenomenal dinner at this beautiful restaurant last evening. The salmon ceviche and oysters were fresh, tasty and delicious and the beef Wellington was so incredible I wanted to lick the sauce right off the plate!

Stanton Social was a great experience from start to finish. Our waiter gave excellent cocktail and food recommendations. We were never rushed; in fact, we were encouraged to take our time tasting our way through the wonderful menu. Fantastic evening.

Quality has declined dramatically since the announcement of the closure. Probably for the best that this restaurant will no longer be around in the new year.

My party and I loved everything about the restaurant however major points are lost due to the over 30 minutes wait we had to endure even with a reservation. That needs to be better. Asides from that the food was great and the service overall was good.

We waited 30+ minutes for our table even though we had a reservation. The hostess was very unfriendly. We had dinner planned for a birthday event and were not able to eat until 11:30.

Food is pretty good, but portions are tiny (even though they are meant to be shared). For the price of the items, I expected to be wowed by everything I ordered...but was not.

Would be nice if they offered bottomless brunch.
Overall, the place is beautiful and cozy. Service was good and it seems great for having a small group brunch/dinner.

Food was amazing - well presented and delicious, just lovely. We went on a Sunday so was pretty quiet but the service was terrible. Waitress was so spaced out, verging on rude - got items wrong (missed items off the order, couldn’t understand a wine order) and generally no eye on customer service at all with a challenging attitude. Such a shame as without her it would have been a fantastic evening.
