Food and service for my table was great. But there was a guy a few tables over who was loud and obnoxious, and kept smoking despite being told by servers to put it out, he'd just light another one when no one was looking. Eventually servers clearly saw he was smoking and just ignored him.

Best of the Best! One visit was not enough to enjoy all the hot items on their menu, i had to come back and my second visit was even better than the first. Do yourself a favor and trust me, here is what to order : Octopus, short rib, branzino and lamb chops, their wines are also worth trying, I have got to go back again! I am hungry just writing this review and obviously can't hide my excitement about this place.

It was probably the best anniversary dinner we have ever had. Would have rated 10/10, the star of the night is the Greek lamb chop, DELICIOUS! Very Courtois and friendly staff, clean establishment and mindful of social distancing.

I usually enjoy Station 4. However, this time was different. When I got there she appeared not to find my reservation that I mad with open table. She tried to sit me by the kitchen at a tiny round table with the second person in my party perpendicular from me so that they weren’t “in the way” of the waitstaff. I asked for a new table and was given one. The menu’s we were given looked like they hadn’t been washed in months and the salt and pepper shaker were disgusting as well. When I got my French toast the butter had melted on to just one piece. I asked for more but by the time it came I’d finished eating.

Amy, It’s always sad to know we didn’t live up to a guest’s expectations, it’s even more disappointing to know it’s someone who has been supporting us. We are terribly sorry for this, we hope you give us a second chance to amend things with you, if you are open to discussing this further, please contact us directly at the email address sent you in the dm.

Our server was very sweet but the timing from getting water when we first sat down , appetizers and our dinner was extremely slow. We were very patient but our server was the only one in our area and it wasn’t really fair to wait soooo long for just the water! They were extra busy to just have one waitress serving so many tables alone. Terrible experience . The food was good though.

The overall feel of the restaurant was really nice. The ambiance and atmosphere was very lively and inviting. Our waiter was accommodating. The mimosas are very nicely sized and they give the table their own carafe rather than having to wait for them to refill your glass. The food was your average brunch food. Like anywhere in DC, finding parking was a hassle. Street parking is very limited and the garage next door is outrageously expensive.

I completely understand we are in a Pandemic, but if you are providing a services and have to work don’t be anal. The staff was a unprofessional. I worked in the restaurant for over 5 years and they level of service I feel was very poor. I am an understanding person so if the waiter was busy instead of rushing us and trying to walk off as he talk he could have easily let us know I honestly didn’t feel to welcome until he realized we where going to have a large bill that would insure him to have a tip. It’s unfortunate me and my sister had to deal with that but I highly doubt that I would ever return.

Sasha, Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention. We are so sorry to hear of your experience, it definitely does not meet the standards we put for ourselves or our staff. Our managers would like to look into this immediately, could you please let us know your check number or name of your server on your receipt so we can properly address the issue. We definitely would want you back and would like to ensure such instance does not happen again with you or other guests. Thanks again.

Regular food and way overpriced. Charged prices like it’s riverfront but the best view is the navy yard metro station or Safeway. Brunch might be different. Service was decent but nothing special.

We were in DC for our anniversary and wanted a nice dinner. The pictures of Station 4 online make it seem like a “upscale” restaurant. The photos show white linen on the tables and beautiful food plating. Based on the menu and prices we figured it would be a great choice! We made a reservation online and asked for a window table, not even sure why we made a reservation as they didn’t even reference it when we got there. We were seated at a large table, not very intimate for a party of two who indicated the occasion on the reservation! There were definitely no table linens and paper napkins, not linen ones as pictured. In a normal circumstance, this wouldn’t matter however we were celebrating an important occasion and specifically wanted a fancy-ish place! Service was slow, but not bad. I ordered the steak and my husband ordered the crab cakes. The food was plated nicely however it lacked flavor. And by that I mean, we have made a better steak at home. The asparagus was average. The crab cakes were large, but again, laking flavor. We probably wouldn’t pick this restaurant again.

Very nice ambiance; reserved a table for outside but it was a bit too chilly so we opted for a table inside. The décor was great and it wasn't too loud. Service was quick and thorough and the food came out quickly. Everything was tasty, but not exceptional. Still, it's worth a visit if you're in the neighborhood and need a bite. Very nice looking patio.

From the reviews, photos, and menu prices of the restaurant we were expecting an upscale experience; it was not. We sat outside. The chairs were broken and frayed. The small patio area had a bar which had attracted a rowdy local crowd who appeared to be regulars. The customers at the bar and those sitting at tables near the bar were enjoying themselves as they shouted their opinions to each other. Great for them but not for the other diners trying to have a quiet dinner. Our dinner was frequently interrupted by someone climbing through the bushes that surrounded the patio to get to the bar. The service was poor. Our waiter kept changing. The food was awful. I got soup as an appetizer. It was brought out with our meals. So I asked that they keep my hamburger warm while I ate the red pepper soup (it was chilly outside). The soup was bitter as they had not bothered to remove the pepper's seeds. My husband ordered the short rib. They were stringy and undercooked. I ordered the Burger. Yuck. Especially as they had not kept it warm. . Before we ordered, we showed our waitress ( she had replaced the waiter who had gone AWOL) our Open Table coupon asked her about any restrictions. She said that we could order anything and that the coupon covered everything - food, drinks, tax, tip. When our check came and we handed it to yet another waiter (number 4) he said it only covered food showing us where it was printed on the coupon. The coupon did not say "food" only. It said "meal". Doesn't a meal included food and drink? He said he would do us a favor and "comp" the meal and get the money from Open Table. I don't think he knows what comp means.
Stay away unless you plan on going just to join the locals shouting at each other. You would be better off getting take away from the burger joint next door. The food would be better and the ambiance less ear splitting. Your wallet would thank you too.

Went for a fabulous birthday brunch! Table of 6 arrived around 11:30 am. Originally we had reserved for outside seating but they were able to accommodate us inside, since it was still quite cold. Had wonderful service and greatly enjoyed the bottomless Bloodies & Mimosas! Food was excellent especially the challah french toast.
