We were in the city for the weekend and came here for brunch, we had a BLAST! We sat upstairs where there was a DJ who made a fun atmosphere. Food was to die for. Get the Oreo Pancakes and Mac and Cheese!!!!

I was charged twice for the same dinner and when I called to have it fixed i was given the run around for an entire week. I spoke to the manager Michelle several times and she was not helpful at all. The problem was never resolved and I had to call my bank to have them file a dispute for... More

This place looks nice and is super trendy. Its like a cross between a restaurant and a might club. They were blasting music. But it was so loud that the waiter couldnt hear what I was trying to order. I could barely hear my girlfriend across the table from me. Its a tapas place so the servings are small and... More

What a great experience we had!!! LOVED the uniqueness of all of the dishes and I highly recommend the potato and goat cheese peirogies, the French onion soup, the meatballs and the mushroom ravioli. The chicken and waffles were dry and not good but we loved everything else. We were there as a party of 9 and they made the... More

If you like a rude, intransigent, arrogant hostess and waiters that never look at your table, the Stanton Social is the place for you. It was a special night for a friend, we were a group of six and one of us was late. This lady not only made us wait (w/ 2 hungry teens in the group) forever but... More

Been here a few times and never had a bad dish here. Most were excellent. And the service is also excellent. The only complaint I have is the size of the portions...They claim the items are to be shared (think Tapas) but the size of the portions do not reflect what they charge. For the money the portions should be... More

We made a reservation 1 month in advance because we had heard a lot about this fun sharing restaurant. We got stuck in the subway and called the restaurant saying we would be about 20 min late, the only respond we got was that they have a 15 min window so they were gonna let the table go. When we...

We had great expection going to this restaurant. It is a very nice place. It was a sunday night so it wasnt very busy. It's a good place to go with a group of friends. They have the round tables that make it very convenient for groups. However, I was a little dissapointed for the food. We shared 5 dishes... More

I had to rate this 'very good' based on food and drinks and service - it is a bar and restaurant after all! The menu is interesting and executed very well. A good range of creative dishes, with tasty fresh & seasonal ingredients. The dishes are 'small plates' so you need to order at least 2 per person. Plan on... More

We came here celebrating our anniversary and were welcomed with two glasses of champagne! The restaurant has a cool vibe, the music was bumpin. I enjoyed it, but if you're looking for a quiet dinner, this isn't the place for you. The French onion dumplings were amazing as were the potato and goat cheese piroguis. The ceviche was little spicy... More

Description
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.

Staying in Lower East Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving immigrant past and its modern transformation into a beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side is one of the most dynamic neighbourhoods in the city. The blocks of tenements that represented the promise and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience now command top dollar for new residents. Right next to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment shops of Orchard Street, you’ll find hip clubs, fashionable bistros, and luxury hotels beckoning at all hours of the evening. If you love nightlife and live music, it’s hard to beat the scene here.
