I'll never understand this obsession with presentation. A three course meal for $54? Why would I pay big bucks just to feel hungry 15 minutes after I eat? I hope the portions are a little bigger than those pictures. It looks like the restaurant takes portion control to the extreme. I consider myself a foodie, but I'm not dumb enough to pay a lot for little.

Definitely not blown away by this restaurant. Price has already jumped $5 since it opened, due to a lot of great reviews, that seem somewhat unwarranted. I have found the food pretentious, with strange pairings, and two bite portions. Best to eat before (and after) you go.

We had a fabulous dining experience at Station One. Each mouthful seemed to merit savoring. The combination of flavors was terrific for every dish. Normally I wouldn't order a meal in this price range, but the quality and artistry of the food makes it very worth the price.
