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!!!

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.

Fabulous. At first didn't think that the small tapas-like portions weren't going to satisfy, but I was wrong. All together my wife and I ordered 4 different dishes and they were great. The flavors for each were incredibly. Suprisingly the quesadillas on the menu that evening were extremely tasty. The dessert cookie plate was extremely good. The only thing that didn't live up to expectations was the drink. We both ordered the Blood Orange Jalapeo Margarita, but not as citrusy as we were expecting. All in all weel worth the trip.

I'm a big fan of the small plates restaurants, and Stanton Social does it right. My favorite dish is the short rib tacos. Their deserts are great as well. We went for New Year's once and it was a really nice place for a group as well.

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
