Between our waiter who was less then stellar my food was uncooked significantly twice! Also the online menu says they have corn tortillas but when I came in I learned it was just flour tortillas. Uncooked food coupled with bad service not really making this a place I can recommend.

Ordered 3 items to split between 2 - house salad, carnival pizza and fish tacos. All were very good and it was the perfect amount of food for 2. Highly recommend sitting at high top in the bar area. The tables for 2 in the dining area looked very close together.

The food was mixed. The mussels as a starter were delicious, as was the seafood linguine and steak with frites as main courses. The scallops with jambalaya was so-so- the scallops were delicious but jambalaya was too tomatoey. The ambience was nice, but they must not like children, because the three families with children, including mine, were all near the bathroom and back walkway, even though the children were not babies or infants and all very well-behaved. Though our table was nice, it was obvious that it was in the families with kids area.

Station 4 makes fabulous pepperoni pizza. It is no longer on the brunch menu but you can still request it. Ask for Tim as your waiter. He is the best!

Good food and great location to Arena Stage. Less expensive than Wharf restaurants.
I frequent this restaurant as it is conveniently located for business dinners. I have had their seafood and I'm very fond of any roasted meat dish. The meat melts off the bone. Good wine list and excellent service.

We ordered the salmon flatbread and the list of ingredients on the menu didn’t include eggs. I’m allergic to eggs and I had to send it back. However, the menu listed cream cheese and the flatbread came without it. Also, there was a mistake with the check, only one of the cards was charged for half the amount. The other half had not been charged. We were trying to do the right thing and told the waiter we had not been charged for the other half. We waited for 30 minutes and he would continue to serve other guests, yet he would not fix our bill. We had an event to attend afterward, so we had to leave. We had to go call the manager. She took care of it quickly and apologized for the inconvenience.

Had dinner before the DC United game. I had the seafood salad and my husband had the Mediterranean pizza. Both were quite good. The salad had a lot of seafood on it and was very fresh. The pizza was a bit messy but it was tasty as well. We ate fairly early so it was not too crowded but it’s quite loud. I felt like I had to really talk loud to my husband sitting across from me. Overall a nice meal though.

Upon being seated, the dirty water glasses turned me off. Then the confluence of flies landing on my food and my hands got so bad I had to go inside. There was nothing notable about my fish sandwich and salad, perhaps the cucumber was fresh (I saw a plant on the patio) but everything else was what I would expect for your average chain restaurant.

Located in something of a restaurant desert. There's not much competition in the neighborhood a sandwich shop, an South Asian restaurant, and a burger chain.

"Station 4" is a target of opportunity for those with business in the mixed-use high rises on 4th St, SW or if your timing is right for a pre-performance dinner before strolling over to the Arena stage complex.

The service was adequate, the food was excellent — crab cake on a brioche bun — and the dessert to die for a pistachio cheesecake! There's not much to beat it until you get to the new DC Wharf.

Tasty brunch items. The Bloody Mary was a tad too spicy, but the bartender did not skimp on the vodka. A minor complaint, but one of us ordered an omelet and specifically asked to exclude the home fries, but the dish showed up with home fries anyway.

The server started out very attentive but we lost his attention somewhere during the meal. Not terrible, but the gaps between his table stops grew noticeable longer and longer. I'd go back again, but not a third time if that was repeated.

This place wasn't bad, but it wasn't great, and I would expect at least "very good" for the price we paid. We had a reservation, but we were seated at a table for 4 (maybe 5 could have fit), and there were 6 of us. We were right by the door to the outside tables, so staff was constantly going in and out...it was VERY warm out, which meant that we were really warm the entire time. We got no bread at all (other tables did), our drinks took forever, I had to ask twice for ice, and the servers were not at all coordinated. The person who took our order did not deliver the food, and the poor guys that did had no idea what to put where. We had to turn our plates sideways to get them to fit. One of us had a salad, and it came out 10 minutes after the rest of the meals. We didn't see any staff for long periods of time...thankfully, we were not in a hurry. With so many good restaurants in the area, I wouldn't go back.

Normally I really enjoy Station 4, as it’s one of my favorite eateries. However, this visit was a mixture of failures. My party was seated towards the back in a corner, while there were plenty of empty tables in the front & middle of the restaurant. There were maybe five groups of people in the restaurant at the time. Second issue, we were ignored by every server it seemed for about 10-15 minutes before a server offered us water. We learned he wasn’t our server but wanted to check on us. Our server eventually came over & from his interactions we realized he was New & in training. Our food arrived quickly but the dishes were not completely cooked & lacked the proper proportions. It was not a great experience.

I picked this place based on it was near the waterfront, wanted a date night that was romantic, but it poured down raining, so we had to eat inside and what a joy that was, first the server was excellent, the drinks were really good, and the food was delicious. Date night was a hit.

The food was great but we did not order anything exceptional, just a quick brunch before the theater. The only thing to mention would be the service staff seemed pretty stretched thin, but they were trying very hard to be attentive and responsive.
I would try this place again during dinner to give a better response.
