The Station Restaurant
Nice atmosphere. Old train station. Casual, but nice.
I have been there a few times before Ann on Thanksgiving , I think that they did a lot right to make a very enjoyable dining experience. Our server, Nicole, was wonderful. The portions were more than adequate, in fact two of the diners had leftovers. The turkey dinner was fine, although there was mainly the darker meat.

My wife & I tried the station for the first time on Saturday. Easy access for handicap. Seated immediately. Friendly staff. Nice specials and good beer selection. We started with the Spicey shrimp appetizer. The U-15 shrimp were served with shell-on. The sauce made it messy for peel & eat, but it had great flavor. Served with the table bread which was soft and fresh. We both ordered the Zuppa de Pesci. The platter was hugh. We had 3 meals per order including leftovers. Great tasting sauce. Entree also included soup or salad. I had the New England clam chowder ( soup of the day), best tasting chowder I have had in a long time in CT. My wife had a mixed salad, she said it was fresh and just the right size. We treated ourselves to the pumpkin cheese cake, which was rich & creamy like pumpkin ice cream. Pleasant night out. Will be back to try a steak.

Nice lunch spot. Great atmosphere and service. Food ok.
This was our first time at the restaurant.
We LOVE this restaurant BUT - service is so sketchy - every time! Waiter disappears. Others appear - always with smiles and pleasant, but I find myself flagging staff down - EVERY TIME! The food, location and ambiance is fabulous - best filet mignon I have ever had! I continue to return, but I so wish the staff could get it together!
We went there for my birthday dinner. Everything was perfect!!! The staff was beyond nice. The food was out of this world, we would have ordered dessert but we were stuffed. Even the drinks were great. I would recommend this restaurant to EVERYONE!!!
Good food and beautiful setting and great service. Will return soon.
Our service and the appetizers were excellent. Unfortunately, the main courses fell very short. Only one person in our party of six enjoyed their meals. The filet mignons were ordered medium and were served well done. The steak au poivre was made with inferior quality rib eyes and a sauce that resembled and had the consistency of southern fried steak gravy. The peppercorns had little to no flavor. More than likely very old or stale. We collectively all decided we won't be frequenting the Station Restaurant again. Very disappointed to say the least.
Beautiful decor. Very good parking. Food was excellent and very good portions. Stuffed mushrooms and zucchini flowers were delicious as an appetizer. Veal saltimbucca was excellent as was the salmon.
I was very disapointed with the eggplant rolatini. Ii was more like a soup.....not an eggplant. Too much sauce and cheese. Was a liquified dinner. I needed a spoon to eat it, not a fork.
We were there with a group of 8. Very attentive staff. Food was excellent and plentiful. I should have chosen the onion soup instead of the salad - it looked amazing. My chicken saltimbocca was very tasty, my sons enjoyed the captain’s platter. I knew this building as the train station from back in the day. They did a beautiful restoration . Nice to see life in this part of town.
Good for big party, very good food and service!!!!
Lunch with 3 friends. Sandwiches were good, turkey clubs, pastrami Reuben and a BLT.
Very noisy, we were seated near the bar. I asked for a different seat and none were available.
Food and service were above excellent!
This is an excellent spot situated off of Route 8. Our dinner didn’t miss a beat and our server was very kind and generous. When there was a slight issue with the cheesecake preparation, we were alerted before it was served and it was removed from our bill without asking. No matter how nice of a place you dine at, small mistakes come up. The difference is made when the establishment preemptively exceeds expectations to remedy the situation. Thank you!
Wonderful ambiance, food, service and pricing! Enjoyed very much.
The waitress took a really long time to get the table started - like 15 minutes. However, afterwards she was on point at every step of the way. Menu selection was more than adequate. Food quality, taste and presentation were excellent. Very enjoyable evening.
Great food. Great location. Cheesecake with raspberry sauce is phenomenal.
Our meals were good, the waitress was friendly and accommodating. Two drinks had to be sent back because they were not made correctly. It wasn't very crowded on a Sunday afternoon so the noise level was good. Otherwise if it's crowded the noise level can be really high.
Delicious food, attentive and friendly wait staff, no wait time
Atmosphere is great. Really enjoy just sitting and looking at the wonderful décor and imagining the train station years ago. Food was great - everyone enjoyed their meal.
We come back to this restaurant often. Love the ambiance. Large menu so there’s something for everyone.
Second time there. Sat outside and everything was excellent.
Food and service were great but the music was a bit loud.
Great experience! amazing food! I would highly recommend!
Nice place, server was not very attentive and forgot bread, food delivered by someone else and mixed up similar dishes. We didn't notice until later. Food is just so-so, nothing special. You really need to step up sophistication of flavors and ingredients if you want to survive.
A repeat destination. Consistently good but service a little slow on this busy night and the vodka sauce was really off. It was more like a Marsala but tasty-just not what was expected. I was a bit surprised squash blossoms were beer battered and deep fried instead of skillet prepared, but again- tasty. We love this restaurant overall.

Our server, Elvis, was attentive, expedient, and pleasantly professional.
We were seated upon arrival. Service was very friendly and attentive. Food was excellent from drinks to appetizers to entrees. No room for desert but since we had been here before the menu provides a limited but very good list of "sweet" choices. Overall; Highly recommended.
Amazing experience! Great menu, quality of food, ambience and fantastic service! A real treat when I’m visiting dad.
The location is what initially draws you to this restaurant as it is a renovated train station . Thats good for the first visit . You need more then that for the 2nd & 3rd time back AND this place has it! Great ambiance & great food . Good beer selection too.
My order was incorrect & when I brought it to the server's attention she claimed it was not. I reviewed menu again & the order was wrong my meal was supposed to have included hot peppers & side of pasta. Instead there were no hot peppers & a side of rice which I do not eat. My husband ordered the 42oz steak special and it was 30% fat. Won't be going back.
We had a reservation for 8 people originally and they accommodated us for 10 with zero hesitation. Our orders were taken quickly, everything was brought out in a reasonable amount of time. It was a smooth experience all around. Our server was a younger guy who was kind, patient, and amiable. Thanks for everything.
Enjoyed an excellent meal with very good friendly attentive service. Would definitely
go back in the future and recommend the restaurant to someone who has never been before.
Enjoyable Lunch with old friends.
