Outdoor seating didn’t have enough heaters... they need to have at least 2 more. One of the few heaters they had was broken. When we came in, we were sat in the open (not under the tent) and our waiter took another table’s heater and dragged it over to us. For the rest of the night, the drunken group whose heater was stolen was yelling things at us and glaring at us.

Food was.... ok. Not worth the price. Was told we could not order from the bar menu, even though you could order it for take-out, which was disappointing because all we wanted was crackers and cheese.

Also customers beware. They already charge you 20% for tip and NEVER tell you. If you were drunk/not paying attention, I can see someone giving the waiter an additional 15%-20%. If you are going to automatically add 20% tip, you should tell your customers. I always give a 20% tip. I am not upset that they add that .... I am upset that they don’t tell you it’s added.

So glad I came across Station 4, i came here for drinks with my friends but ended up having a full course meal. Though we sat outside due to indoor dining restrictions, the restaurant seemed to do their best to keep us warm with heaters and managers and staff constantly checking if we are seated comfortably. The food was so hearty, delicious and generous for such a nice place! Please support them, they deserve it.

Our reservation was at 2:00 it seemed as if they just opened. Heaters wasn’t on tables wasn’t set, we sat down and realized This was not how we’d start our New Years.
The ambiance out doors was the worst I’ve been.

Needless to say we didn’t eat or drink anything from here.

So sorry to hear of your experience. We take pride in making every guest satisfied and try our best to swiftly adapt to the unpredictable changes a pandemic & government regulation impose on us. We worked hard & fast to equip our patio to welcome guests in winter, and yes it has not been easy and we are still learning in the process. We understand if it did not meet your standards and ask for your understanding. The quality of our food & service, the commitment of staff deserve a second chance.

The place was not sufficiently conditioned to serve outside and it was very cold and they did not have enough stoves, although there were only 4 tables available. It was not a good experience in that sense.

Carlos, thank you for coming out to support our business during these unprecedented times. As you know, we had to adapt quickly to only serving customers outdoor during a cold winter, we are still learning to adapt to these unpredictable regulations and ask for your understanding and forgiveness. We hope you enjoyed the food and were satisfied with the service. We open for indoor dining in less than 10 days and hope you visit us again!

Overall nice restaurant with good distanced outdoor seating. Attentive and friendly service. Brunch menu has good selection of regular and specialty dishes. Had eggs with sausage and home fries - generous portions, sausage a bit lacking, strange texture without much meat - mostly non meat filling.

I am honestly heartbroken that I do not love in D.C. to visit this restaurant more frequently. That’s how impressed we were! The staff, the food, the service, the atmosphere and the value. We came here for the Thanksgiving dinner meal and we were not disappointed. What a wonderful experience. Thank you, Station 4! If we’re ever back in D.C., put us down for a visit!

The service was good, but I was a little surprised at the paper napkins and no plates with the appetizer. The appetizer that we ordered, shrimp ceviche, was drenched in lime to the point it was like a sour candy- not the vibe we were looking for. Overall it was fine and the service was nice, but we probably won’t go back.

It took quite some time to be waited on outside. Then a larger group came and the animation was quite high. The Mediterranean Pizza was a bit different than the last one I had. Overall all was good since I really came primarily for the pizza. I will return to one of my favorite SW restaurants.

Not worth it. The food is okay, but overpriced by about 2x. They played loud club music, which doesn't match the decor. Patio tables had no coverings, and they put out paper napkins. Service was apathetic and did nothing to enhance the experience. It has a lot of potential, but seems mismanaged.

Reasonably nice interior. Reduced patronage due to COVID certainly. It was unreasonably difficult to attract the attention of our server to place a drinks order. After that service proceeded as expected.
Some other patrons were excessively loud and boisterous, detracting from the experience.
Food was good to excellent.

Our sons 21st bday. We had 7 in our party which they accommodated us at one table since we were there early. And we had the best waiter. Maroon. He was very pleasant. Very attentive to our needs. Allowed us to eat and drink at a comfortable pace. We’ve eaten out a lot in a variety of settings and maroon was by far one of the best waiters we’ve ever had.

I’ll start off by saying that the food and ambiance was great but it was overlooked due to the lack of service we received. I’m not sure if my server may had a rough day but it was very apparent that he was simply “over us” by the way his eyes rolled when asking about something and or requesting something. I ordered an alcoholic beverage and in my opinion was to strong for me. I addressed the issue with my server and requested for a lemonade instead. He looked at me took my drink and walked away return with my drink and walked away no words were given. Based off of my server’s negative attitude I did not feel comfortable taking a sip from my drink and at that point and was ready to leave.
