My husband and I love to try new restaurants, particularly our local ones. We rarely get to go out so every dining experience counts. We found Station 9 to be one of the worst dining experiences we have ever had. Granted, we only made it to our appetizer (grilled calamari), so I can't speak a whole lot for the food (that particular appetizer was delicious). The place feels frazzled. The waitstaff runs around aimlessly, the chef is out conversing with the patrons (who is cooking?), while you wait, in our case, 45 minutes and still no entree. The most appalling part of the evening is when the waiter brought out our bottle of wine (not the one we originally ordered because they were out) and left it on the table UNOPENED for 10 minutes. While we sat there and stared at our unopened bottle of wine, we were in awe. Where did he go? Finally another staff member noticed us and came and opened the bottle. We never did get our entrees - we explained to the waiter that we were trying to catch a show and despite him putting a "rush" on it, after 45 minutes we had to abandon it. Overall the restaurant makes you feel alone and abandoned. I would not recommend it at any cost - particularly with so many other wonderful dining experiences in DC. I'm not quite sure how they are still in business.
