We went to Station 4 for Father's Day because of the Lamb Chop Experience offering and interest in supporting the rebuild of the wharf area. However, it was a complete disappointment. The pictures of the restaurant featured on the website are misleading as the dining room is old, poorly arranged and in deep disrepair. Our reservation specified the Lamb Chop Experience but only after we ordered drinks and appetizers were we told that the lamb chops had sold out earlier that afternoon. Our reservation was for 6 pm and no one called us to let us know about the change in menu. We spoke with a manager who was apathetic, to be generous. No true apology, no suggestion of what dishes could be a replacement and no acknowledgement that this was negatively impacting our celebration. Champagne problems for sure, but the rudeness and the fact that no solution was put in place is worth sharing. Not to mention that they tried to blame us for not knowing that the lamb chops sold out. Apparently, we could have called before we came.

Claudia, we're so sorry we failed to meet your expectations. We completely feel your disappointment and agree with it, you should have been notified earlier about the lamb chops, we apologize for the miscommunication. For over 10 years we've been known for an exceptionally accommodating service , we are bumped to miss the mark with you. We’re working on a makeover of the restaurant to keep up with the rustic swanky vibe and would love for you to give us a second chance to amend things with you.

It could have been that the place was busy, service was very slow and the food lacked flavor. We ordered the lamb chomps.

I went there to celebrate a birthday and the service was very slow and we literally have to signal somebody for every thing (I.e water, silverware, steak knife for my steak order, etc). In addition to the service, the A/C seem to be out of order because it was very hot. The food was ok - we had the dinner menu but I wished it was a little more seasoning. Overall, I was disappointed and most likely won't be returning unfortunately.

We’re so sorry your experience did not match your expectation. We set high standard for ourselves particularly on special events and we are disappointed to have missed the mark with you. The AC breaking down on us throw us off track, our team worked hard to get someone to fix it asap. It was an uncommon instance, and we're sorry it affected your celebration. We are known for great food and impeccable service, we would love for you to return and give us a second chance to fix things with you.

Horrible service!
Had a reservation it but were told everyone had a reservation and so there’s a waitlist. The cleaning materials and or the aprons the waiters were had a foul smell; at some point they had to spray some air freshener but that didn’t last for up to a minute. Their website stated that brunch runs to 4pm we got there at 3 and were told brunch ended at 3pm (after we had waited another 20 minutes to get seated). We had to order dinner instead. The cocktails we received were lukewarm and flat; the pasta at hiked up dinner price was horrible and had to be sent back; the crab cake sandwich and burger we settled for were just OK! We would jot be returning

Station 4
Responded on June 1, 2021

We're sorry to hear of your experience, we sit tables within minutes of their arrival. Unfortunately, we're currently experiencing delays due shortage of staff in all aspects of our operations. Cleaning and hygiene are of top priority, we are addressing your concerns immediately. Our website mentions Brunch ends at 3PM, could you have possibly mistaken it for lunch hours for weekdays? We are disappointed you caught us on a bad day and hope you give us a second chance to make up for it.

We ended up changing restaurants, it was supposed to be a nice restaurant but there was food stuck in the menus. So we had drinks and left.

Dear guest, Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have prioritize the use of contactless menus to eliminate the risk of passing along germs, paper menus are also available and are sanitized after each use. We are sorry to hear of this uncommon instance and are bumped you didn't get to try our dishes and their sophisticated flavor. We hope you give us a second chance to prove this to you.

Great food and great service in a restaurant with so much ambience. Would defintely recommend the starter macaroni with the cornbread. The cornbread is surprisingly moist. The French onion soup is delicious and the roasted chicken was extremely seasoned. Great portions for the price as well. Only wish they had more options for those allergic to seafood/shellfish but still a great experience.

Dark and lots of noise. We checked the we could order off the menu when we reserved with OpenTable, but when we got there we could only get Brunch. So I asked for a cappuccino and the waiter told me they only had coffee as the machine was broken. And the food, was just not that good.

We went for a pre Mother’s Day fellowship. With the exception of the duck fat fries, the rest of the food (stuffed salmon, crab cakes, Brussel sprouts, mashed potatoes and even the Kobe sandwich h had no flavor at all). Glad I checked in on Yelp to save 10% off on the bill. It’s a cute place with decent drinks. I recommend it for happy hour not for dinner.

The food was good, my steak could have been better. My friend had the French toast which she enjoyed. The waiter was kind and accommodating, we had endless mimosas so no complaints there. It was a nice atmosphere for brunch will definitely be back soon. I do wish the brunch menu was a little more diversified. Pancakes for 18$ but doesn’t come with any sides was a little disappointing to read
