Went with a large group and the waitress said "let me bring some stuff for the table." Big mistake - a ton of plates that nobody really wanted, and a huge bump on the final bill that was a little shocking. My hangar steak (TOO small) came out with the apps. For what they charge that is unexceptable. A cheap bottle of wine does not really exist here. Pretty people, but not worth it.

This is one of the best brunch spots I've been to. Two of us shared three plates and left feeling satisfied. The menu had so many options, it was hard to choose. First, the heuvos rancheros were so filling, eggs fluffy, chorizo not too spicy. The biscuit and sausage slider was delicious, the biscuit soft and not overwhelmed with creamy gravy. And the frites with chili mayo were crisp and hot and hit the spot. We can't wait to go back to taste the plates we didn't have room for.

I love brunch here. Just like their dinners, they expect guests to share each plate. Between my boyfriend and I, we shared 3 plates, and it was perfect. While it's not as cheap as other LES stops, it was definitely reasonably priced for the quality and presentation of the food and the atmosphere the restaurant provides. The brunch menu was one of the most exciting brunch menus I have seen in awhile, and I go out to brunch every weekend. I look forward to coming back soon!

Stanton Social is the best tapas restauarants in NYC. The food is unreal. We loved the goat cheese perogies, brie & peach quesadillas, corn dogs, kobe beef burgers and french onion soup dumplings most! Expect to share a lot, it is not cheap but it is incredible. Their donuts and dipping sauces are to die for! Go there and ENJOY :)

We went with a large group -- all of us grown up (i.e.>35) celebrating a birthday. The service was unbeliveably rude. The bouncers and the host were hovering and insisting we leave or move out of the lounge --while we were in the process of ringing up a bill of $2000! I can only imagine how rude they would be if I went with a small group-- they would probably just pick us up and kick us out. It's too bad since our waitress was really nice and the food was good--but beware if you go with a group of more than 3!

i don't have any complaints about the cost of the food, since it's supposed to be multiple small plates for each person and it is new york. some of the dishes, however, were lacking in flavor. the kobe beef burger didn't have any of the succulence that kobe beef should have. the ribs, while tender, tasted only like they were char grilled and not that they had any marinade or glaze (which would have improved the dish considerably). the chocolate tasting dessert was decent, but the mousse was very low in chocolate flavor (perhaps more cocoa power or melted chocolate was necessary). the highlights were the french fries and the french onion soup dumplings. overall it wasn't bad, but it definitely wasn't a stand out either.
our dinner was just fabulous. the service felt a bit rushed, but nothing can compare to the atmosphere and dining experience. the french onion soup dumplings and kobe beef sliders and donuts for desert are a must!
