Greek
A fine-dining Mediterranean restaurant that couples the freshness of traditional Greek cuisine with a modern white-washed atmosphere. The walls are adorned with old black and white photos of Greece, a nod to our namesake, which is the origin of “nostalgia.” Our healthy menu has guaranteed returning customers and consists of daily fresh fish, popular lamb dishes, and several vegetarian selections. The Aegean-inspired airy ambiance makes Nostos a romantic choice for a date night; while our private room options make it ideal for special parties or corporate events.

Had dinner outside on a lovely evening. Wait staff was attentive, friendly, and helpful. Our baked feta, tomato, and pepper appetizer was delicious. The calamari was seriously the best we have experienced. The grilled lamb chops were excellent.
Highly recommend!

The waitress was a bit slow pouring the wine. Frankly, she was inattentive showing little enthusiasm for the job. The lamb chops were good but they were cooked more than medium rare. I heard it was an excellent restaurant. I would say it was a good one, but not great.

Painfully slow service, though perhaps due to the impromptu-seeming parking lot “patio”.

Food was good, though the menu was limited.

Will come back for the normal indoor experience after the pandemic ends.

It was great to be back at Nostos and find that the haloumi, sea bass, branzino and other items were excellent, as always. Best Greek food anywhere around, and we’ll look forward to another visit soon.

Nostos has set up a great outdoor space for meals. The food and the service give the experience a very European feel. The halibut and the sea bass were both outstanding.

We really enjoyed the food here however felt like the service lacked. We arrived early and were told on the phone we only had two hours at our table, which was fine by us. Unfortunately after waiting ten minutes to even receive water we realized we may be a bit longer than two hours. We ended up staying longer than two hours due to slow service and were never bothered by staff to leave so that was relieving. Our appetizer (dips) and salads came out together and then there was a large waiting gap before receiving our entrees. After entrees we ordered dessert, 3/4 arrived at the table. We asked for silverware and waited another five minutes (after our ice cream had melted) for someone to tell us the 4th dessert was not available and then again had to ask for silverware. We were served forks for dishes with ice cream. We were also disappointed that no one asked for temperate on the lamb chops and filet skewers. Fortunately the flavor made up for the undesirable temperature of the meats. We would consider coming here again.

Nostos was ok. We've been there before and have had a fabulous time but this time it just seemed a little off and the staff seemed to be more concerned with their to go orders then people sitting in the restaurant. Also, the food didn't seem as fresh as we've had in the past. Overall, it was just ok. Maybe it was an off night.

Best customer service! The lamb chops could be a little more meaty, less fatty. They need to add hummus to menu.

Nostos did a fabulous job with their safety precautions. They had the tables spaced out, provided paper menus, and all employees were wearing masks. The silverware was wrapped in a nice napkin and not left on the table to prevent germs. The food is always fantastic from the freshest Greek salad to fish that tastes freshly caught and expertly prepared. Service was friendly and efficient.

This was a great first outing since March C19, enjoyed our time as always with Nostos! Great staff and service. Had the weather been better, the outside new seating area looks very cozy, inviting and will need to go back to enjoy the outside experience!

They have a big tent outside to support outdoor seating. Similarly, adequate spacing inside for social distancing. Staff is considerate and food is always great.

Lovely dinner outside. Food was excellent. Tried a new Greek white wine and it was quite good. Service seemed a little slow at the end of our meal and we had to ask for our check twice but I’m sure things got busy.

The best Greek restaurant in the Virginia suburbs, and maybe in the whole DC area. All of the meze (small) dishes were wonderful, and the swordfish on the skewers was easily the best swordfish I have ever had -- moist and flavorful rather than dry and chewy as is too often the case.
