Station 4 is always a great experience and the professionalism of the servers is a treat. During my latest visit we had Marie as our server. She was attentive, courteous and extremely helpful. Our party had 9 people and she appeared very patient and attentive to any questions or menu recommendations. We will definitely be back!

This was my second time eating at Station 4, the food was good and I actually like this place. Nice place to get a meal nothing really stands out as spectacular just good food at a decent price. I will be a regular since I live in the area now.

We sat in a booth by the window, and the four of us were easily able to carry on a normal conversation. The food is was yummy and the service was good. This is a great place to dine before a play at nearby Arena Stage.

The restaurant's proximity to Arena Stage makes it an ideal pre-theater spot. The prix fixe pre-theater menu is a good deal. However, it's value is somewhat diminished because the 10% discount for Arena customers isn't valid with the prix fixe.

The food is good, not great, but good. The menu is varied so there is something for almost every taste. My biggest gripe is with the service. For a restaurant that touts it's convenience as a pre-theater spot, the service--especially at the end of the meal waiting for the waiter to bring a check--is poor. This was not a one-time occurrence. The last time we came here--also pre-theater--we experienced the same problems.

Looks like we may have to find another pre-theater dining venue.

Made 12:30pm reservations for Sunday brunch. Was called at 12:22pm to confirm I was still coming. Restaurant is small but nice. We were a party of 4. We ordered French toast, Breakfast burger, Scrambled eggs w/cheese, bacon, House salad. Everyone enjoyed their food. Service was very nice and welcoming.

Great pre-Arena Theater spot! Pre-theater dinner reasonable if limited. One in our party chose w/Caesar salad, salmon (was good with fennel’s) & a brownie. Table also had delicious burrata & tomatoes salad and main course Sesame Tuna w/glazed veggies — quite cooked & barely seared as we like.

Since it's opening, about7 years ago, my husband and I have witnessed this restaurant's finest and lowest moments. At one point we swore, we would never return but we remained customers and visited occasionally. Thank goodness we never gave up!!!

Our last dining experience was beyond our expectations and joyously appreciated. The waiter was very attentive and spoke at a sufficient volume to be heard over the loud background. The meal, appetizers and entrée, was not only delicious but presented beautifully. We shared the excellently prepared whole bronzini, after it was deboned with flair at our table by District Manager Mohamed.

We will be happy to convey details of our dining experience to our friends.

Good location for a pre-theatre dinner prior to Arena performance. Service was initially a little slow, but improved during the meal. Make sure the host(ess) knows that your reservation was through Open Table.

We came here to eat before a show at Arena Stage. It was happy hour and we ate at the bar. The Happy Hour specials were good, both the food and drinks. The bar tenders were not friendly, and it was hard to get their attention even though there were not many people at the bar.

Station 4 is our go-to restaurant before matinees at Arena Stage. We loved the lunch special of soup, half sandwich, and salad for $10.99 or so. We are sorry that it is no longer on the menu but glad that we can still negotiate it. The food remains very good, although a lighter touch with the salad dressing would be appreciated. Next time I’ll order the dressing on the side.

Very disappointing. From the moment we entered the dining room, we were bombarded by loud techno music which seemed to come from the bar. The dining room was basically empty, but the noise from the music, and perhaps the bar patrons, was jarring and torturous. My partner went outside to wait for me after she ate because she couldn't take it anymore. Needless to say, we skipped on the desert.

We spoke to others who have been to Station 4, and they confirmed the same experience.

We were going to Arena Stage to see a show and we chose Station 4 for the convenience. We had also eaten there before and had a good meal so that was also a factor in our selection. I am not an egg eater but there were several options for me. My wife go an omelet which she enjoyed. I got the cheese plate which offered three tasty cheeses with accompaniments. We had time for dessert and got the chocolate lava cake which flowed with chocolate. A very satisfying meal.

The brunch menu is small and was recently changed, but Station 4 does have some creative options: chicken/mushroom omlette, crab benedict. It's about a five-minute walk to Arena Stage, so for pre- or post-theater dining, Station 4 is super convenient.

Dined before concert at the Anthem because no reservations available at the Waterfront. Very pleasantly surprised! Nice salmon tartare app and scallop dinner. Didn’t have time for dessert. Good service too. Would have been fine to walk down to the Anthem if the weather was better so plan accordingly.

I feel the restaurant was conflicted...2/3 of the space had a fine dining feel - with tasty, well-presented food to match, but the other 1/3 (which ran down the side) was more like a sports bar, with loud music...
We were seated at a small table for two (almost cocktail-sized), which struggled to accommodate our water, cocktails, bread and plates.
