I go to Station 4 most times when I go to Arena Stage. It is uneven. This time, I was struck by how much more expensive the menu has become but was glad that the pre-theater dinner was available (on request and with ticket). The soup was excellent, the salmon slightly over-cooked but the veggies were good (more, please). Chocolate cake was fine.
Our server, who has been there for many years, seems like a friend and is excellent. They moved tables so that we had social distance and the bathrooms (not a strong point for this establishment) seemed better maintained than on my last visit.
When they are good, they are very very good. I only wish they could be consistently so.

It was my sister’s birthday so we had dinner at Station 4. Overall, it was a good experience. The food was delicious. We got the Mac& Cheese, calamari and crab dip for appetizers. For mains we had the the crab cakes, salmon stuffed with crab, Caesar salad, kale and quinoa salad and the lamb. All delicious. Also got the loaded potato soup which was the only thing we didn’t like. It was a super busy night but our hostess ( I believe her name was Elizabeth) was really kind and attentive. She made sure we got everything we needed and had a positive attitude. Ended with a free birthday dessert for my sister so all in all a good night.

Six of us were hungry after a 3 hour show at Arena Stage. With multiple culiary tastes and appetites, we were all totally satisfied by Station 4. Two of us come regularly to grab a burger after the arena shows but the other 4 were happy to be introduced to a more varied menu here (grilled octopus for example was given a rave review, who knew). Our server was lovely, attentive but didn't rush us so everyone was able to tell all their stories before we left. Portions were on the large size so unfortunately we didn't try the desserts. Will be back again.

It’s a very pleasant restaurant. The prices were a little high for me, although I realize prices may be going up all over. So I got the tuna sandwich, which was good but not great.

We had an excellent pre-theater dinner at Station 4. The service was friendly and attentive, and the meal as excellent. The prices for entrees are a bit steep, but we were able to take advantage of a pre-theater special, which as excellent value for a 3-course meal. We arrived early, so the restaurant was not to crowded and was quiet. By the time we left, the restaurant had filled up a fair bit, but the noise level was still reasonable. We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Station 4.

This was my first time here, and I enjoyed everything about the experience. The hostess was friendly and pleasant, and the server, Alissa, went over and above my expectations. The ambiance is perfect for any occasion, and the location is convenient — just across the street from the Waterfront Metro Station. I’ve already told others to consider Station 4 for their future dining needs. I ordered the Marinated Grilled Tofu w/ quinoa, avocado, sweet peppers, cilantro, vegan Demi, and for dessert the chocolate molten lava cake, sans the sorbet. It was all so good and flavorful. This is DC’s best kept secret. Many compliments to the chef, who gets an A+ from me. I’ll be back again very soon.

Only table in the restaurant and still had to get up twice to get drink refills. Food showed cold and very small portions considered plates were 25 bucks a pop. Manager apologized but made no effort to fix the issue. To aid to the frustration they slapped on a mandatory 20% tip when we only had 5 people even though their menus said 6+ ppl gets mandatory tip.

They advertise online and on their physical menu that bottomless brunch doesn’t end until 3 PM, but when I got there the waiter proceeded to tell me it ended at 2:30 PM. If I knew this I wouldn’t have booked the reservation or would’ve made it for an earlier time. The mimosas were mostly orange juice. The food was just okay. Definitely find a different place if you want to celebrate your birthday, there are better options for a bottomless.

My wife and I wanted to grab a bite before seeing a show at Arena Stage Theater so we found Station 4 located a block away. The pictures online made it look like a nicer establishment then it really was. Don’t be fooled by the tufted furniture and fireplace. This is a dive bar disguised as a restaurant.

Menus were stained and dirty. Our server knew nothing about any of the drinks or food and had to come back to me to ask again what I ordered. I only got the shrimp tacos which were just grilled, over-cooked shrimp with diced tomatoes on a small, soft tortilla that deteriorated as soon as I picked it up.

I wouldn’t care about the quality of the service or food if they didn’t charge SO MUCH. It’s insanely expensive for such a terrible experience. I felt ripped off. Avoid this place at all costs.

Everything was great. They may however need to do some sort of spraying etc as there were Nata on the inside while eating and that was just a bit bothersome. Take action now before the problem gets bigger. Otherwise, it was great.

The food was tasty but we waited longer than expected for our main entree to come out after our salads. We had theater tickets and had to eat quickly and have our dessert packed to go, which made it a stressful, rather than enjoyable, meal.

The service was off the night we ate there which was odd. Station 4 is one of our neighborhood joints. We eat there once every two months or about every time we dine out!!!! We waited 30 minutes for a soda, ask for salt and never got it. The server kept coming over and asking questions of us but every time they did I was just putting a bit of food in my mouth and it was very uncomfortable. I had to swallow my food whole whole the server lorded over me waiting for a response. It was just to much hovering and not enough delivery of service. The food was wonderful as always.

The service on the patio was amazing. The burger was not that good and the fries were not worth the price. The food is sliding a bit in the quality. it was dry and slapped together hurriedly.

The prices are very high for what you get. The wait staff is wonderful. Hope the food returns to its former quality.

Went here for a last minute birthday brunch and when they say bottomless mimosas, THEY MEAN BOTTOMLESS! Wish the menu was a bit more expansive, and the food was nothing to rave about but the servers were friendly and the kitchen accommodated my vegan toddler. Overall we had a good experience and will most likely come back!

I made a brunch reservation for Saturday morning. We were sat right away after being given the choice to sit inside or outside. We were promptly seated on the patio per our request. My party ordered our entrees and an order of the “Duck Fat Fries” as an appetizer. The eggs with my Benedict were cooked perfectly and the entrees were overall very solid. The fries were $10 and tasted like normal fast food fries. They were seasoned with just salt and didn’t have any sort of parsley or anything to spruce them up a bit. They came with ketchup and an aioli served in a plastic ramekin. A little disappointing for the price. The service was good and quick, but I didn’t see a single server or host smile or thank us for being there, which goes a long way. The restaurant itself was very clean and decorated nicely. I would return to try more of the menu items and enjoy the space again.

The short rib was good and on equal par with other good restaurants. But, the price was higher and not on par. The calamari fried as an appetizer and grilled in the linguine was rubbery and tough.
