I visited Station 4 for outdoor dining on the night of the DC fireworks... with masks on during the pandemic....and it was still a great experience! Great seafood and steak, and terrific service! Very clean and in compliance with social distancing. I highly recommend!

Forget about the Wharf hype and walk over to Station 4! Excellent food and service. Highly recommend. We didnt have a reservation and the hostess still managed to get us seated on the patio with a short wait on a busy Sunday afternoon. Staff were courteous and knowledgeable. Food excellent and generous portion. fairly priced

Food is overpriced and quality is mediocre. The only thing special is that they charge too much for their food. Definitely not coming back.

While waiting to get service, a few of the workers continually took smoke breaks in front of the restaurant which made the outdoor area smell like cigarette smoke.

Do yourself a favor and go somewhere else where quality meets price.

We are very sorry to hear about this. We thank you for sharing your feedback we are proud to serve hearty meals at a competitive price compared to other establishment in our area.

We were there around 5 pm on. Sunday evening after attending a matinee at Arena Stage.
It was very quiet in the restaurant with few tables occupied. We were we seated right away. My husband ordered the jambalaya which was good but had scallops instead of shrimp, which he did not prefer although they were well prepared.

I ordered the warm quinoa salad which had roasted tomatoes and the crispy Brussel Sprouts. Both dishes were excellent and I would order again.

Service was great. Everything came out timely and together.

Great experience.

We had a pre-theater brunch for a Sunday matinee. We were seated promptly and welcomed quickly by our waitress. The staff was a bit uninformed about gluten-free options, telling us nothing on the menu other than fruit is gluten-free. We ordered an omelette and huevos rancheros. While flavorful, the dishes were not very hot. I like that we could take our time and not feel rushed.

Our party of three’s dining experience was outstanding. The service by our waiter, the food, and the atmosphere was very inviting.

We all enjoyed ourselves, the occasion was a birthday celebration, and complementary dessert was enjoyed by the celebrant.

We’ll certainly dine here again at the earliest opportunity.

Our server, Jessie was great! She took really good care of us. Station 4 was very comfortable. The food good, could have been better. We had the braised short ribs and they needed to be seasoned a little better. But they were very tender. Would order them again, but would add salt. I would surely go back to Station 4.

In a word, horrible. We arrived for our reservation and were seated promptly, given menus and water and then...nothing. Literally, nothing. Staff buzzed around doing whatever but no one ever spoke to us. After 15 minutes or so, we decided to leave. So we got up, put on our coats, and walked through the entire restaurant on our way to the door. Still, no one said a single word to us. We left.

Second time visiting Station 4 in a week! Celebrated my birthday there on Saturday. We started out with the Fried Calamari, which was delicious and cooked perfectly! Went with the Kobe Burger and Angus Steak Frites as our main courses! Absolutely AMAZING! It was a busy dinner crowd on a Saturday but that didn’t stop our waiter, Andres from checking on us constantly, making sure we were well taken care of and all while completely calm, kind, genuine, never made us feel rushed and with a smile on his face! This was a truly great experience and wonderful staff!

No. Place was loud and had the feeling of a cafeteria. Waiter was rude and hurried our table. He said something along the line of "please order quickly we need to get you out for the next costumer. We have a big line right now" Also refused to give us advice on the menu. The two women staff members at the front/welcome desk were very kind and great to work with.

Food was outstanding (I had the Salmon w/Brussel Sprouts and Lentils ). The Facility and service was great, only problem was the table my wife and I were seated at was very small for the big bowls our meals were served in and with the drinks on the tables, I was afraid something would drop to the floor.

We continue to go to Station 4 because it is close to Arena Stage and the service is excellent. We have not found a place yet that is close to Arena Stage with great food quality and value. Even though the drinks a bit overpriced, we will probably just use Station 4 as a place for a drink and conversation before the show. The food is underwhelming, small portions, and overpriced. I don't find the quality as something that would drive me to recommend as a great food experience. The menu is limited. I would recommend Station 4 to a friend looking for a place to get a drink and something to eat before a show until I find something better.
