20% TIP added to bill the and server didn't say anything!!!

I mean really, just tell me you're adding the TIP to the bill. The food is excellent but not saying anything about the 20% being added in hopes I add another 20% is BS!!!

Good food, too loud, pricey drinks

If you go there to drink, and eat, then you are up for 100+ tab for 2. Food is good and affordable, but the portions are small! drinks are very pricey.
I recommend trying this place and judging for yourself.

great food, good service

Loved the food, we go here after we shop down at the new Pilgrim store on Orchard Street. That is an amazing store and we love coming here for food and drinks afterwards.

The whole lower east side is really great and changing for the better.

It's slipping

This place used to be a favorite. From the mac n' cheese to the french onion soup dumplings, it was pretty impeccable high-end bar food. (The blood orange jalapeno margaritas totally turned me on to jalapeno-infused tequila.) But I went again recently and I think it's definitely in that phase that NYC restaurants go through when they've been open for a few years and they just don't have to try so hard anymore because there will always be some chooch and his girl --or, worse, all their friends--rolling up to eat here.

I'm just getting into this reviewing thing, but I knew I wanted to start with my favorite restaurants. I love Stanton Social to the ends of the earth!!!! It has been my go-to place when I want to impress friends from out of town or catch up with my girls. The food is always good and if you get there early or make a reservation, its really not too annoying how crowded it is.

Every dish we ordered tasted wonderful. The staff was very attentive and friendly. We had Kobe beef sliders, Tuna with wasabi, some pizza dish and others.They were all VERY GOOD.If you have a large group, they cut everything into smaller pieces so everyone can share. Would definitely go back! But make sure to make reservations as they get really packed!

The Stanton ANTI-Social

Located on Stanton Street on the Lower East Side of New York dwells The Stanton Social, a popular restaurant that serves a variety of ""small plates"" to everyone's delight. The theory is that sharing dishes, which arrive throughout the duration of the meal, makes for a very ""social"" experience, and thus the name of the restaurant, I suspect.

This sounds like a beautiful notion.

Except that my experience there this weekend was unbelievably anti-social, thus the clever little name I have rebranded this place with (The Stanton ANTI-Social).

My friend and her fiance invited me to meet them there, so that we could have a drink and catch up. When I got to the restaurant, they were about finished with their meal, so I sat next to my friend on the ""booth side"" of the table. Suddenly some guy with short, wavy brown hair, who we later learned is the manager, came over and said, ""this is NOT a three-person table, you can NOT all sit here."" So my friend's fiance agreed and we all nodded along as the manager-boy ran off. We then quickly started to complain amongst ourselves about what an uptight freak this guy was (and is, everyday of his life, I suspect). Not ones to stay where we aren't wanted, we asked the waitress for the check and continued on with our conversation while we waited for it. About 7.2 minutes later, the manager-lad returned to the table demanding, ""ONE OF YOU HAS GOT TO GO."" Again, my friend's fiance agreed, explaining that we were waiting for the check.

The check came, we paid, and got up to leave. As I was walking out the same manager-dude said, ""thank you, gooodniiight!"" To which I responded, ""um, yeah, right."" Then my friend stopped him and explained how that was the rudest most uncalled for experience she had ever had in a restaurant in her entire life and that we would make sure never to return and recommend the same to all of our friends.
