This was my first time here, and I enjoyed everything about the experience. The hostess was friendly and pleasant, and the server, Alissa, went over and above my expectations. The ambiance is perfect for any occasion, and the location is convenient — just across the street from the Waterfront Metro Station. I’ve already told others to consider Station 4 for their future dining needs. I ordered the Marinated Grilled Tofu w/ quinoa, avocado, sweet peppers, cilantro, vegan Demi, and for dessert the chocolate molten lava cake, sans the sorbet. It was all so good and flavorful. This is DC’s best kept secret. Many compliments to the chef, who gets an A+ from me. I’ll be back again very soon.

They advertise online and on their physical menu that bottomless brunch doesn’t end until 3 PM, but when I got there the waiter proceeded to tell me it ended at 2:30 PM. If I knew this I wouldn’t have booked the reservation or would’ve made it for an earlier time. The mimosas were mostly orange juice. The food was just okay. Definitely find a different place if you want to celebrate your birthday, there are better options for a bottomless.

My wife and I wanted to grab a bite before seeing a show at Arena Stage Theater so we found Station 4 located a block away. The pictures online made it look like a nicer establishment then it really was. Don’t be fooled by the tufted furniture and fireplace. This is a dive bar disguised as a restaurant.

Menus were stained and dirty. Our server knew nothing about any of the drinks or food and had to come back to me to ask again what I ordered. I only got the shrimp tacos which were just grilled, over-cooked shrimp with diced tomatoes on a small, soft tortilla that deteriorated as soon as I picked it up.

I wouldn’t care about the quality of the service or food if they didn’t charge SO MUCH. It’s insanely expensive for such a terrible experience. I felt ripped off. Avoid this place at all costs.

Everything was great. They may however need to do some sort of spraying etc as there were Nata on the inside while eating and that was just a bit bothersome. Take action now before the problem gets bigger. Otherwise, it was great.

The food was tasty but we waited longer than expected for our main entree to come out after our salads. We had theater tickets and had to eat quickly and have our dessert packed to go, which made it a stressful, rather than enjoyable, meal.

The service was off the night we ate there which was odd. Station 4 is one of our neighborhood joints. We eat there once every two months or about every time we dine out!!!! We waited 30 minutes for a soda, ask for salt and never got it. The server kept coming over and asking questions of us but every time they did I was just putting a bit of food in my mouth and it was very uncomfortable. I had to swallow my food whole whole the server lorded over me waiting for a response. It was just to much hovering and not enough delivery of service. The food was wonderful as always.

The service on the patio was amazing. The burger was not that good and the fries were not worth the price. The food is sliding a bit in the quality. it was dry and slapped together hurriedly.

The prices are very high for what you get. The wait staff is wonderful. Hope the food returns to its former quality.

Went here for a last minute birthday brunch and when they say bottomless mimosas, THEY MEAN BOTTOMLESS! Wish the menu was a bit more expansive, and the food was nothing to rave about but the servers were friendly and the kitchen accommodated my vegan toddler. Overall we had a good experience and will most likely come back!

I made a brunch reservation for Saturday morning. We were sat right away after being given the choice to sit inside or outside. We were promptly seated on the patio per our request. My party ordered our entrees and an order of the “Duck Fat Fries” as an appetizer. The eggs with my Benedict were cooked perfectly and the entrees were overall very solid. The fries were $10 and tasted like normal fast food fries. They were seasoned with just salt and didn’t have any sort of parsley or anything to spruce them up a bit. They came with ketchup and an aioli served in a plastic ramekin. A little disappointing for the price. The service was good and quick, but I didn’t see a single server or host smile or thank us for being there, which goes a long way. The restaurant itself was very clean and decorated nicely. I would return to try more of the menu items and enjoy the space again.

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.

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! :-(
