    Food was mediocre - nothing amazing. It also feels like the space hasn’t been updated in a while. It was really empty (which was a bit strange for Sunday brunch), so we were a little nervous upon entering. The food was fine, but it would not be my first choice for brunch.

    There was a fireworks show at The Wharf that day. The restaurant was packed. They had problems organizing the reservation and ensure tables available on time. The starts were served after 35 min. Besides all that, the staff were thoughtful and the food was delicious. I consider it expensive but the portions were of a good size.

    It is a nice restaurant. The server was very professional, friendly, and ready to help. I like their uniforms. The food was served fast and it was good. In the reservation I mentioned, we are celebrating 2 birthdays but it was not acknowledged by anybody from the staff. We celebrate my birthdays or my friends in many restaurants and we always heard Happy Birthday from the staff and even dessert was served from the house/ management. It was a disappointment not to get any acknowledgment. What is the purpose of providing the note in the reservation if it is ignored?

    It was one of the few restaurants that was open on Thanksgiving afternoon. The food was average, the decor was good, they had both the World Cup soccer on and the football game in so my husband and son were happy. Great sangria and good service. It was expensive though and the added a 20 percent tip on, but since it was Thanksgiving we understood. Overall 👍

    We were pleasantly surprised! We sometimes used to eat here before plays at Arena Stage, but it was never great. When The Wharf opened, we found places there that we liked much better. And then came Covid. We tried Station 4 again last Saturday night, and it was very good! The food was very good (people in our party had the braised ribs, fish & chips, and cauliflower). The service was quick, and the noise level was quite moderate (the restaurant was not full). We'll be back for our next play at Arena.

    The ambiance in the restaurant was beautiful. The food was tasty. Disappointed that I did not earn any points for this reservation. When I initially booked the reservations the website said I would earn points. In fact It was the main reason I booked a table. The confirmation came back as no point earned. I did not notice until leaving the restaurant.

    The decor & ambiance was nice. The waiter wasn’t very attentive & the food was mediocre & over priced for the quality. The stuffed salmon wasn’t stuffed at all & the skin wasn’t removed. The waiter refilled our drinks after asking for the check & a to go box. Definitely not worth the $170 for 2 people.

    Service is a big part of enjoying the experience of dinning out. At least for me it is. The service, provided, was well below acceptable. On top of this they add 20% to the bill. The party consisted only of two! I think this is becoming common practice so be alert when eating out. Our server was very inattentive and we asked other servers for help while our server was chatting with his co-workers. This "asking others for help" repeated four times at which point we engaged the manager. He removed the sneeky 20% tip although we still left a tip.

    First, this restaurant is not located at the SW waterfront. Second, it is in the old part of the land-bound SW area and it is across the street from a park with persons experiencing homelessness or just folks hanging out - did not feel safe. And the place is old and tired - we attempted to sit at a booth and the bench had no cushioning, “pleather” was coming apart. Our server was very nice but service was slow. Food was mediocre at best and not worth the price. Overall, was very disappointed and it was a special occasion- ruined. I was embarrassed as I had selected the venue.

    I have come to Station 4 a few times over the years. Not sure if it’s COVID or what, but it’s just not the same. The menu was limited, and the prices were extremely high. Furthermore, my son was served a chicken sandwich that was not done. It was a cutlet, so I’m not sure how it was so hard to cook it correctly. They did try to make it right and brought another, however the second one was almost burned. He ate it with no complaints, however for $26, I’m not sure how hard it was to make a basic chicken sandwich correctly. The rest of our dishes or just average. At this point, I doubt that I would visit the establishment again.

    I was very disappointed with the service and the food. I’ve been to Station 4 three times in the last year because the quality of the food aligned with the price. Each time I went I took others to share the experience. This time it was a big disappointment. My party was a total of six (five adults and one toddler). Our server was MIA to the point we couldn’t keep up with who was the actual server and the place was not what I would consider full or packed. My seafood pasta was supposed to be cooked in a spicy tomato sauce, it was presented swimming in a read sauce that omitted any hint of spicy. I told the server but his response was oh the chef doesn’t know how spicy people like it. The menu literally states “spicy”. There was no offer to make adjustments to the food it was just oh well. The brussel sprouts which were my favorite were so small and uneventful that I started to wonder if the entire staff including Managment was new. Then, there appeared to be lots of mosquitoes floating around because three of us were scratching at bites towards the end of the meal. Because we were considered a party of six gratuity was included in the bill but the server didn’t bother to remind us Not a good experience for me nor my friends and this was their first time at Station 4.

    The SOUND bounces off the wall...we went for Lunch and we asked the hostess to seat us in a quiet area...unfortunately we were very close to a table of 6 LOUD SQREECHY women who were drinking not eating. Their voices got louder and louder the entire hour. It was very very very annoying. Our waiter was attentive but quite busy with other guests. I doubt very much if I'll go there again, despite it's closeness to Arena Stage which I frequent regularly.

    There was a hair cooked into the French toast. We shared this with the waiter. He took the hair and apparently compared it to the people in the kitchen. He came back to the table with a different hair and said no one who works in the kitchen had similar hair. He said they would take $10 off the bill. No apology. He initially refused to allow us to speak to a manager. When the manager did arrive he did not offer an apology but proceeded to tell us that the kitchen staff wore hair nets. That’s all fine and good. The point was the hair was cooked into the food. An apology should have been offered rather to bringing a hair back to the table and try to convince us we were crazy. They eventually did take the French toast off the bill. An apology and refund should have been the first solution. It was horrible customer service.
