"I love this neighborhood spot. However, the food was not quite up to par. I had a grilled veal chop which was delicious, but the wild mushroom risotto was WAY overcooked and tasted more like traditional rice. The calamari were terrible. The batter was soggy and overall tasteless. The fried green tomatoes were unexceptional as was the fried zucchini. The asparagus served on each plate was practically raw (I do like it al dente but this was really pushing it. On the bright side, the featured wines of the evening were great."

"This was our first visit and probably won't be the last. The food was very good (French-Moroccan). I had a fabulous grilled octopus to start and the lamb shank with Moroccan spices. I appreciated that it was a small size and doable - I love lamb shank but usually have to take half of it home. My husband had a wonderful sea bass in puff pastry. The restaurant is small and a little cramped, but the staff was efficient and friendly. Kudos!!"

"We have been to Station 4 many times. Probably not again. Many things we looked forward to (like the grilled octopus) have disappeared. The cheese platter we ordered had three of the smallest pieces of (ordinary) cheese I have ever seen and it was priced at $15!!! One of our party wanted the cornmeal fried oysters (listed under salads). She was told it had 3 oysters and asked if they would serve 6 and she would pay extra so it would be her main course. The waiter seemed confused by this and brought two plates each with 3 oysters. One of our party eats only fruit for dessert and was told that this was unavailable. This has NEVER happened to us before. The service was ho hum as was the overall food experience."
