    This was a memorably bad restaurant selection. The dining room roared with fans attempting to compensate for the partial failure of the A/C system. The hand dryers for the restrooms screamed throughout the dining room each time someone used them. Our glasses of chardonnay were delivered with ice. We were not offered a substitution of a wine which was chilled properly. The food was far from exceptional. Service was friendly but not especially attentive.

    My husband and I went to this restaurant to have brunch and from the start it was terrible. From the huge mosquitoes, to the Nats, to the ice tea served in a beer glass. The food tasted very much like it was yesterday's leftovers, and for the price they should call a flooring company as everyone was sliding and slipping as they were coming in. Awful experience

    Great food and great decor. Not the best service as the waiter took quite a while to greet us and food was very sporadically dropped at our table. The price though was great. Also the place was loud but worked for our party as we had a toddler.

    We were not served immediately. We watched other tables around us receive Mimosas and we had never been asked if we want drinks for 15 mins. We did not get menus until we asked after sitting 10 mins. We had to ask for a waiter. It was hot in there no ac at all. Food was good but not great and not worth the price. We had gratuity automatically added as we had a party of 8 but we did not get served for the $50 worth of gratuity it was horrible

    Station 4Responded on September 6, 2022Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback, we are so sorry to hear of your experience. We want you to know that your complaints have not gone unheard, and we have shared them with management. While we were unexpectedly very short-staffed during your visit, this still does not represent the level and quality of service we aim for our guests to receive. We apologize again for this missed mark and we hope you give us a second chance to win back your trust.

I had sorbet and gelati for dessert and that was even amazing! Asked for more. This place is a must go. Also the staff are very very attentive they will definitely notice when you’re in need!!!! We will be back

    This was my third time here, and everything was great just as I expected it would be. I was most pleased with one of the items I ordered, the beet gazpacho. I only had a tomato-based gazpacho. Never had it with beet before, and it blew my mind. It was the perfect accompaniment to the kale quinoa salad. Everything was satisfying. I’ll be back, most assuredly.

    Awesome food, horrible customer service! Sunday evening, three booked tables, including us and from what I could count, four wait staff. Took forever just to be acknowledged. Worst anniversary ever. It was simply embarrassing for me to take my wife somewhere and be ignored. This is not to deter anyone from this culinary experience this was just unfortunately ours.

    Service was slow, it was very loud and hard to hear this the orders came out incorrectly and we had to wait a while for the correct orders. The price of May menu items were not of value based on the amount of food. For example $16-$18 for Pancakes and French toast served alone, no sides.

    My wife and wanted a booth but the server told us that the one booth that was left was reserved for a party of four but she sat us at a table with four chairs….the party of 4 could’ve sat where we were seated and I believe she could’ve let us have the booth. The food was good and the servers got a little mixed up but overall it was just an ok experience.

    When we usher at Arena Stage, 3 of us like to go to Station 4 beforehand to have brunch. This past weekend, the service left a lot to be desired. When asked to customize an omelette, we were advised that the ingredients are already mixed so a few requested items to be deleted could not be accommodated. My friend ordered the breakfast sandwich, and the tomato in the sandwich was 90% core where the stem attached--not even 10% tomato. Her bacon was 'overcooked'. for her taste. The other friend gave her usual high praise for the french toast. My eggs were ok but there's no attempt to to do anything with accompanying potatoes. We had to ask for butter and jam. We had requested separate checks, and this waiter was put out by it, not hiding his disdain; the 20% tip was added to the bill. This seemed to assume 'older' women don't know how to tip. Sadly we are debating whether to return. I've had great service when seated at the bar alone on multiple occasions. The AC also was not working as an earlier patron reviewed, but they had a lot of fans to address the heat and humidity.

    Server was not responsive to needs of table, rushed us through a celebration meal, did not offer dessert menu until prompted— in no way earned the 20% built-in gratuity. Wife found a piece of hard plastic in her food. Wanted to keep the remainder of her meal, but they took it (because it was removed from the bill? Don’t know). Music was too loud for table to converse easily. Additionally, restaurant week menu was minimal, if any, savings on the typical cost. Very expensive and disappointing.

    Their AC was broken. Food was meh & server rushed us & often didn’t make us feel welcomed. It was my niece’s birthday - the experience was not what we expected. We paid $108 dollars overall & only had plates of wings, artichoke dip, salads, and guacamole while trying to stay cool off the fan they provided & to not anger the server. It was average.

    We had eaten at Station 4 about four years ago and remembered it as being a decent restaurant. So, we decided to eat there before a recent Nats game and found that the restaurant did not have the same type of energy as it did previously. Maybe it is under new management. The staff seemed to just go through the motions when serving us, and the food was extremely expensive for what we received and was mediocre at best. For the price, we would have expected more. It should not be listed as a $30 and under restaurant on Open Table. It is definitely well above a $30 restaurant, and not the quality you would expect. The decor was also quite dated. Not sure how it is still in business.
