Why would a new yorker ever go here twice?

  • No, I would not go back!

We went with a large group and got seated in the lounge--rang up a tab of a couple of thousand dollars of wine, cocktails and half the menu--and while the waitress was lovely, the rude hostess ruined the evening by saying that we were taking up too much room-- after they had seated us themselves!. There are bouncers hovering over you telling you not to stand up--sorry but some of us have to use the rest rooms -- and really, who wants bouncers breathing down your necks while you're eating? The entire evening was ruined because of the horrible service. I would never waste money here again--and hope no one else does either. Probably ok if you are a tourist-- cause its very sex and the city-like. But this place has passed its prime, just like Sarah Jessica Parker.

Horrible, horrible service

This restaurant - albeit hip - has the rudest staff I have ever encountered in New York City (which, hopefully, says a lot). Their entitled and disrespectful attitude upset my date and I so much that we just got up and left. I would never, ever recommend this place to anyone. While Stanton Social may be what many consider "trendy" - the staffs lack of class would turn anyones stomach.

Repulsive attitude towards customers

The previous week a friend had booked a table at the Stanton Social for a party of four. Upon arrival (on time) we were told that our table was not ready and that it would be ready in 15 minutes, after exploring every other table related option we were told we could have a drink upstairs and wait it out. After 35 minutes of waiting and numerous visits to check on the progress with the table we left to find a restaurant interested in providing us with a service. The main issue I have with our experience at SS was the attitude of the hostess, she lacked common courtesy, made no effort to keep us updated and showed no signs of any basic social skills. This place seriously needs to review it's hiring/training process for customer facing staff.

The Special Events Manager was nasty and unhelpful when I tried to book a table for 10 people. This place is so over - and over-rated. I discourage anyone to go!

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
