Guide Review - Station 4 Restaurant Review - Washington DC

The menu at Station 4 offers a great variety of dishes. Starters include items like Charred Octopus, Duck Confit Spring Rolls and House Cured Salmon. There are cheese selections, soups, six salads, a variety of pizzas and main courses such as New York Steak, San Francisco Style Ciopinno and Vegetable Kabobs. I really enjoyed my meal and would highly recommend as a starter, the Stuffed Zucchini with goat cheese, toasted almonds, romesco sauce. The combination was very tasty. The Crab Cakes were excellent with a unique flavor, served with roasted pepper with mango ceviche,a corn purée and asparagus foam. For dessert, the Molten Chocolate Lava Cake is delicious and just melts in your mouth.

The decor at Station 4 is modern and elegant yet comfortable. The restaurant seats 208 including 100 dining seats and 52 seats at the bar/lounge. An outdoor patio is also available during the spring and summer months which can accommodate 56 guests.
