Sat outside and the table next to us was quite loud. Couple that with the woman yelling across the street at the Metro and it was sensory overload.

The short rib was good and on equal par with other good restaurants. But, the price was higher and not on par. The calamari fried as an appetizer and grilled in the linguine was rubbery and tough.

Terrible. Waited 20 minutes at our table after being sat, left since no one came to help us or take our order. The hostess noticed us leaving and was unbothered by it. Rolled her eyes and told us to have a nice day. Mind you we have a reservation for our anniversary.

Although I’m giving the service a 2 star, it’s not the servers that I was disappointed in, it was the rude hostess! If you want to attract customers to comeback to your business it starts when you walk-in right? So this hostess looked aged with glasses, maybe late 50s, anyways I asked if me and my friend can sit outside for brunch, I arrived maybe 15 min early for my reservation, she told me I would get kicked out after 90 min since it’s brunch, red flag already. Then we proceeded to walk out to the patio, it started to drizzle so I politely asked if we can go inside. She rolled her eyes at me and picked the worse table inside since it empty and tossed one menu on the table, like really one menu for 2 people? To the manager if you are reading this , I don’t think I did anything wrong other than arrive early and asked for a different table due to the weather. Please train your staff better particularly your hostess. I will not return and neither will other people if you treat your customers like low class citizens.

Took the whole family for brunch - big mistake. While this place seems popular for the all-you-can drink bloody marys and mimosas, it is definitely NOT a place where you want to eat food. There were so many problems. Two of our group ordered the crab eggs benedict with a $12 upcharge. There was maybe 1/2 oz of crab on it and the egg was rock-hard. Interestingly, the overcooked eggs were brought out nearly 20 minutes before other food, like pancakes, so 2 of our party were completely finished eating before the rest got their food. The "chocolate chip pancakes" had no chocolate chips in them - just 6 or 8 chips on the top. Not what you'd expect. The dessert was "coconut sorbet" but in reality was a small scoop of vanilla ice cream. The waiter was confused when we asked about it, and said "all I know is what they tell me". Meanwhile 1 of our group is lactose intolerant and we assure you it was vanilla ice cream! Lava cake is a very dry brownie - no lava. The icing on the proverbial cake is that my kids had to see one of the all-you-can-drink patrons tossing her cookies in front of the restaurant sidewalk on our way out -- at 2:00 in the afternoon! Niiiice. CLASSY! :-(

Hi Dominic, thanks for your review. We rely on feedback like yours to keep improving ourselves.

Would not recommend!! Literally worst meal I’ve had in dc in years. They gave us the wrong menu then charged us the “correct” (marked up) menu prices. I ordered a 14$ pancake and they charged me 18 for the driest pancakes I’ve ever had. Burnt bacon, and my fiancé’s steak and eggs were 22 on the menu and we were charged 28 as they “mistakingly gave us the wrong menu”. It was so hot and uncomfortable in there. Our waiter took our order and we never saw him again. Terrible terrible place, will never return to this whole.

Food had no flavor especially the roasted chicken. Host was a bit rude. Decor was trying hard but borderline tacky. Some areas the seating was ripped and old and in need of replacement. Manager was creepy and came to the table to examine what we were eating and commented that we didn't order enough. Luckily we didn't. There are way better choices in the DC area. We were not happy with our meal here.

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.
