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

I will forever recommend this restaurant to any friends visiting NYC. Delicious food, friendly service, great vibe. Great for special occasions, large groups, or even date nights. We booked beforehand, even on a Sunday evening it was packed, so definitely book to avoid disappointment. Go to Mr Purple, just round the corner for a cocktail before dinner too.

This was my 3rd visit to Stanton Social and I seriously cannot get enough! I wish I could visit NYC more often! The French Onion Soup dumplings are so delicious and mouthwatering! We always order more than one order! The whole menu is delish! I will say, this was the first time visiting on a Saturday and with a reservation,... More

The ambience is quite unique in that it is bigger with the loft than expected, the round booths, and the music add to the experience. We had COBB SALAD BITES, FRENCH ONION SOUP DUMPLINGS, POTATO & GOAT CHEESE PIEROGIES(great) WILD MUSHROOM & SPINACH RAVIOLI(incredible), OLD SCHOOL MEATBALLS(out of this world), ‘BEEF & BROCCOLI( a little salty and the weakest of...

Went to Stanton Social on a recent trip to New York. Didn't start well when the lady at the front desk was incredibly rude and pretentious, so unlike the majority of natives we met! Waited 50 minutes to be seated as our table wasn't ready, we were directed upstairs to wait in the lounge but this was packed too with... More

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.
