It was a good experience, my salmon with grab lacked a little seasoning but other than that, I enjoyed my time

The food was overpriced for the quality level. I ordered a Koby burger, medium rare, which ended up being well done and and dry

Reasonably nice interior. Reduced patronage due to COVID certainly. It was unreasonably difficult to attract the attention of our server to place a drinks order. After that service proceeded as expected.
Some other patrons were excessively loud and boisterous, detracting from the experience.
Food was good to excellent.

Our sons 21st bday. We had 7 in our party which they accommodated us at one table since we were there early. And we had the best waiter. Maroon. He was very pleasant. Very attentive to our needs. Allowed us to eat and drink at a comfortable pace. We’ve eaten out a lot in a variety of settings and maroon was by far one of the best waiters we’ve ever had.

Outstanding food and extremely friendly service, I just did not want to leave the place. I highly recommend visiting Station 4 over the hype of the Wharf next door, in fact they are located a few steps away. Best money spent on a restaurant ever.

I’ll start off by saying that the food and ambiance was great but it was overlooked due to the lack of service we received. I’m not sure if my server may had a rough day but it was very apparent that he was simply “over us” by the way his eyes rolled when asking about something and or requesting something. I ordered an alcoholic beverage and in my opinion was to strong for me. I addressed the issue with my server and requested for a lemonade instead. He looked at me took my drink and walked away return with my drink and walked away no words were given. Based off of my server’s negative attitude I did not feel comfortable taking a sip from my drink and at that point and was ready to leave.

Terrible service, no champagne at the "bottomless brunch" and everyone around me was frustrated with the service.

Station 4
Responded on September 17, 2020

Riley, We completely understand your frustration over the service on the day you visited, and we feel terrible about it. We unfortunately had a shortage of supply as one of the deliveries did not arrive on time, on top of being suddenly short staffed. We want you to know that this does not represent our standards. Over the past few years, we have been known for our great brunch and service. We would love to prove this to you if you are willing to give us a second chance. Thank you!

Remembered when I got there it was another restaurant before it became station 4. With that said. The food was good. Definitely tasty and came out in good timing. We sat outside then had to move inside due to flys hanging out around our table. The server was great. Had a nice personality and was attentive with our needs. The ambience of the restaurant when it was the other restaurant was amazing. Super luxurious and fine dining. Station 4 is not fine dining but great cuisine. Decor seems to be same but a bit run down and needs to raise standards of appearance. Overall enjoyed the food and had nice time. Drinks were kool too. Nice music playing. Unsure if I would go back.

This is sometimes a hit and miss. This time, was a MISS! Was very surprised about paying $134 for a chicken and waffles (dry and unflavorful batter), steak (asked for medium well and it came well-done) and potato, asked for Broccolini as another side ($10.00) and a beer, a margarita, glass of Moscato. I should have gone down the street to the Wharf. Service was great though....food and prices were terrible, the regular chef must have been sick.

Rashid, We’d hate for you to miss a great time when visiting us. Our executive chef strives to stay on top of his kitchen staff to ensure guests enjoy every bite of their meal. We take your recommendations seriously and are happy to share that we are revamping our menu starting next week. We would love for you to give us a second chance as we offer a friendly safe environment and fair prices compared to down the street. Thank you for your valuable feedback.

Decided to check out this place for restaurant week and I for sure do not regret my choice. Their restaurant week special had many delicious options, my wife had the octopus, ribs and pistachio. I had the soup (and wow can they make a soup so fancy and delicious), i also had the salmon and lemon tart. All five stars! Highly recommend.
Would definitely come back

I live in the neighborhood used to come here and loved it. Came again to support local businesses. Don’t know if it’s due to COVID but the services was horrendous- I think they actually forgot about us, and the food was nothing special. Very sad. This used to be a great place to go.
