The Stanton Social
Posted by Anonymous on 08/07/2007
Seriously people, Stanton is TAPAS-- not Peter Lugers. So when you pay 12$ for the crabcake corndogs (which, by the way, is my favorite app in the city) don't expect a plate of 10 of them-- this isn't bar food after all. Stanton is meant to be a dining experience in a nouveu atmosphere condusive to both drinking and socializing, better known as a great time. I love Stanton, just like I like all good restaurants--- this is NY, not NJ so expect to pay.

Went with my girlfriends for a special after-work dinner. Loved the drinks and the unique variety of small dishes - and everything we got was solid. Fun atmosphere - would go back!

Food - Since S.S. is Tapas, I wasn't so surprised by the small portions. However, after I tasted the crabcake corndogs, I was dissappointed ...that I couldn't get more. The food is so rich that small portions are understandable. Quality over quantity and all. Service - Our waitress was very nice and helpful. 2 things stand out in memory. 1. There was a mistake in order. None of the staff had an attitude about it at all. Everything else went seemlessly. 2. After we paid our bill, we got into a deep conversation. We sat and talked for about 30 minutes... and they did not mind at all. Value - There were 4 of us and we paid about $40/each. It seems a bit expenseive when you compare the food size to the price... and when you are ordering. But, when you facgor in service, and atmosphere ... and the wonderful experience, you're getting the deal. Atmosphere- We are from NYC ...and we felt the thrill of "feeling like the Sex and the City" girls. Beautifully decorated walls, dimly light, and small. Felt very French. Intimate, yet a scene. I was up on the 2nd floor lounge like area. It was absolutely great and I wan't wait to get back.

The website makes it look like the newest hotspot or a Tao or place in the meatpacking or Sex and the City. In person it's nice but smaller and clearly an older building in the village just done up. Drinks were very good but overpriced for the place. Food was very interesting and fun to try random dishes. Prices were good too. Everything was good but nothing stood out to where I'd crave anything again. As for the dessert, we had the donuts.....nothing special, the others looked more interesting. Might go back if I'm in the neighborhood but it's not a must.

Have been here several times. Always love it. The food always tastes amazing, and is so original. Never leave feeling too full because the food is brought out constantly throughout the meal. Great place to go with a bunch of friends for a fun night out.

Warning - do not come here with a group! I came as part of a group of six and all the dishes are incredably small and somtimes dishes only come with 2 or 3 pieces/bites so not everyone at the table even gets to sample each dish, unless you order more than one and rack up your bill. Very expensive, tiny portions,not a good choice for a group by any means. Also, very loud, I had a sore throat when I left from shouting across the table. The quality of the food is good but I spent a lot of money and felt I ate like 5 bites, got home and ordered pizza. It was not a satisfying meal by any means.

I came here with a group of girlfriends for dinner (with reservations) and we were stuck in a small round table near the back. We asked if we could sit upstairs and were told that there were no tables available except the small table in the back. The food wasn't bad, but overpriced for the portion of food that they give. Our favorite was the Kobe burger, but that was overpriced too for 2 tiny bites. I've been here a few times before and the service was much better when you come with a small group of 2-4. When the party gets larger, they really try to rush you and get you out of there as soon as possible. The music was a bit on the loud side and people kept on brushing up on people on our table since it was such a tight squeeze. The decor was nice, but I highly doubt we'll be returning any time soon. I always say give a place a chance. Only go if you're planning on going with 2-3 other people), but don't go with a group. Be prepared to spend $60+/per person, if you drink.
