Service is beyond slow, especially if they are going to tax you 20% on top of your bill. I experienced two different waiters. I asked about different drinks and the waiters responses were so bland and as if I was wasting his time. Then you seat me and my guest near the door when the restaurant was empty. Not to mention me having to wear a jacket the entire time.

It legit took 40 minutes after we were done eating to receive the bill. Then another 10 minutes to receive it. Then the waiter had the nerve to say my card was declined after several attempts. So I instantly checked my online chase account. Chase not only notifies you if your card has been swiped multiple times but when I checked I saw no pending transactions, just a lot of money in my bank account.

Long story short, I won’t be back.

Lesson learned

It was me and my fiancée’s first time going to this place and the service was horrible. Our waiter was rude and seemed to not care about whether or not we were good. I will never come back to this place due to the service and how we were treated. Worst experience ever! I do not recommend this place to anyone.

Everything was nice except the fact that when placing the reservation I was given an option between the set Valentine’s Day dinner and the normal menu, only to learn upon my arrival that the restaurant was only serving the Valentine’s Day limited dinner menu. So it was quite misleading and disappointing to learn that we only had the option of three entrees. But the staff did an exceptional job of trying to make the best out of the situation.

My wife and I made reservations for this restaurant for Valentine’s Day. The ambience was romantic and the setting was very nice. The service was also acceptable. The food however was the low mediocre. We figured since this restaurant was on the waterfront in DC that the food would be somewhat adequate. We were sadly disappointed. I ordered a medium rare steak with sweet potato. I’ve honestly had better food made from my homemade air fryer. I’m still in unbelief. The food was horrible. My wife believes that the steak was a very low and cut, and the sweet potatoes tasted as if they were boiled for about 20 minutes and slammed on a plate. Unfortunately I won’t be returning to this restaurant

We came here for dinner a few nights ago. The steak I ordered was ok but nothing special. The service was slow and I felt they tried to upsell us on everything rather than just answering the questions I had about the menu. The mussels my date got were overcooked but the sauce was delicious.

The calamari is a must for an appetizer if you like calamari - it's well cooked, the batter is light and flakey so enhances the taste of the squid rather than drowning it out. And the marinara served in tow is also very flavorful.

The restaurant itself had nice decor. Guests were very loud and clearly drunk, but never asked to quiet down so that others could enjoy their dinning experience. Waiter not prepped on the menu. Could not answer our questions but very personable. Food was decent. Don’t think I’ll visit again.

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.

It was posted on the website that it would be a heated tent. One heater was working and it the other 3 or 4 didn’t appear to be plugged up or running off of fuel. I was expecting the heat to be more contained within the tents to make for a better outdoor dining experience. We suffered through it because it was NYE & we didn’t have a plan B & the FOOD was really good!

Lonnie, we appreciate you coming to support us during the indoor dining pause. As you may know, back in December we had to adjust swiftly to seating customer outdoor only and the process hasn't been easy, we were faced with many hurdles like heaters breaking on you in the middle of a shift... We have made sure such instance does not happen again, our dining room has also reopened now if you would like to enjoy our dishes indoor :)

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.
