Never been to Stanton Social but it's gotten rave reviews on this board and the pictures on the website look great, so I think we'll give it a try for a birthday dinner for our party of four. It looks like a huge restaurant and I would imagine that different parts of it have different levels of ambiance. This will be early on a Friday night (5:00) so we can make a show later. When I make the reservation, what part of the restaurant should I request that we be seated -- upstairs? downstairs? a particular great table? (if they'll allow me to request that kind of detail)? We want it to be extremely celebratory but at the same time, we want to hear each other. Thanks.
