    Four of us enjoyed a nice dinner with attentive staff. The food was good, the wine selection, although sparse had a nice Sauv Blanc from NZ and Argentinian Malbec that paired well with our meals. I’m sure I’ll be back to the Station in the future.

    Great service! Always attentive staff...water glass always full. Great menu. Never been disappointed with a meal that I've ordered. Quaint atmosphere. During busy times, the restaurant can be a little too noisy, but I'll blame the acoustics of the old railroad building.

    My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous New Year's Eve dinner here. Our meal was exceptional, although a bit pricey, and the service was great. Will definitely be eating here again for our next special occasion.

    Another wonderful dinner for my business colleagues at The Station. This restaurant's commitment to attentive service and delicious food hasn't been shaken by the pandemic, supply chain issues or even global warming! It's comforting to have a place where you can go and know that the experience will be consistently excellent. Kudos to the owner and the staff.

    Excellent place always is. Be wary of sharing fees on items seems a bit petty for a place of that stature. It’s a wonderful place.

    We had forgotten how good of a restaurant The Station. Really enjoyed our return. My family all had the same feedback about the food, service and ambience. Will definitely return for another meal. Also, the price for our meals and drinks was fair. I would encourage anyone to try this restaurant. You won't be disappointed.

    Excellent on all levels. Got a 4 pm reservation was greeted at door and seated immediately. Good efficient service. Not overbearing and we were not ignored. Food as always was well prepared and exceeded expectations. A recommendation based on our 4th or 5th visit. One outstanding feature is consistency in all of the above parameters they hit the target on all.

    We have been here many times over the past 7 years. Overall quality has unfortunately suffered. The meat quality has gone down. the amount of tables has increased to the point of my chair being bumped into every time the waitstaff had to squeeze through the narrow spaces between tables. The noise level is not comfortable for dinner conversation. Unfortunately I will not be going back and will not recommend it to my friends

    Tuna was overcooked but corrected quickly. The stuffed pork chop was dry. The smoked fish app was delicious but needed some toast points or crackers. The fried calamari was cooked to perfection. Service was a bit spotty.

    A place we will return to. Great server, he made our night. Food was good with some feedback, - Seafood salad - please cut the calamari into smaller pieces and the shrimp. - Seafood Fri Develo - Only mussels calamari and shrimp - No clams? - Seared Ahi - loose the straw onions and show the beauty of the tuna and let it shine

    Fine dining establishment. I love to come here for a special occassion as the service and atmosphere are amazing. The owner is almost always there, he helps wherever it is needed, greets all the guests, and is very generous and considerate. I would suggest making a reservation for dinner, as it is almost always full up.

    This is such a cozy spot. Tables far enough apart for comfort, and staff usually attentive. My St. Peter's fish was sensational - they really know how to cook fish here. Both guests ordered shrimp with spinach, which they said was excellent, too. II will definitely go there again.
