Lavraki - Branzino
whole mediterranean bass, white-moist-tender flakes, delicate, mild flavor
(seasonal) served over sauteed spinach topped with tomatoes, olives, capers and scallions
lamb shank braised in wine tomato sauce served over greek style orzo
Amazing service and food as always.
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.
I had the Chilean Sea Bass. It was amazing. Fresh and cooked perfectly. Our sever was very pleasant and attentive. A great lunch! I’ve been here many times and will be back for sure.
Highly recommend the Kapinake! Our waiter made great recommendations that the entire table could share.
This place is outstanding and a total gem!!! Cannot recommend it enough - you will not be disappointed!
Great experience as usual; food and service spot on.....gets a bit noisy as night moves on but overall highly recommended.
Always a favorite in every way!
Nostos is terrific -- the food is always excellent and the service is top notch --
Great service, great food, relatively quiet setting where you can carry on a conversation with friends.
Service was excellent, we really liked our server. He was attentive, but personal. The food is all excellent. The only thing i don't really enjoy is the hummus, but everything else is fantastic.
Beautiful restaurant tucked away with lovely ambiance and great food. This is the second time I've been to Nostos, and I want to love it; but both times the service has been lacking. Definitely worth going to, but will never be a favorite because of that.
Delicious food, adjusted for dietary restrictions, very helpful staff, let us stay beyond our booked reservation time
Angela’s warm greeting hug sets the mood for an enjoyable meal. Bartenders George and Manos make you feel welcome and special!
Food is to die for! Halibut is by far best meal in Northern VA!
We had a baby shower for a colleague in the private room. Nostos staff was so accommodating and we really appreciated it. I recommend this restaurant all the time. The food quality is very high, nice wine list and great selection.
Excellent place for lunch or dinner. A little pricey, but an overall excellent place!
The food was superb, especially the traditional Greek chicken soup. The waiter was very helpful in making suggestions about wine and the choice of dips.
Friends and I were celebrating a birthday and Nostos was a first choice, because we’ve had repeated excellent dinners and service there. In fact, we have a preferred server, Gerardo, who last evening, even recommended a wine that worked for all five of us. The menu is flexible, with medezes (small plates) to share a variety of delicious Greek dishes and there are also regular entree choices. Every medeze I’ve had has been a real treat, the Greek salad is the best I’ve had, and the salmon and halibut are fabulous. Lastly, I love the ambiance.
Delicious food w great service. Love the deco since we have been to beautiful Greece. purchased the honey.
fantastic. I WILL PURCHASE MORE FOR HOLIDAY GIFTS
Still one of the few consistenly good Greek restaurants in the area.
Peter and his wife run probably my most favorite restaurant. Whenever I am in Virginia, I make it a point to visit his restaurant and, of course, see Peter and his beautiful wife and daughter.
Great dinner and service with friends ~ food was fantastic everyone enjoyed the food ~ lamb shank, filet, dips, and soup. The Service was excellent waiter was very attentive but not disturbing.
I love Nostos food and ordered a typical Greek-style salad with wonderful, deliciously cooked salmon. My guest ordered Moussaka. We arrived at 1:30, chatted for a bit and then ordered. When we sat down my friend said she wanted a cocktail. I ordered hot tea. The server brought my tea but he never returned to get the order for the cocktail.
My friend felt that we were largely ignored. The staff never came back to check on us. Halfway through lunch I asked her if she still wanted a drink but she was duly perturbed.
My friend had never been to Nostos and I was hoping she’d enjoy the restaurant as much as I always have. She gave feedback to the Host before we left and told him that she didn’t think the service was up to par. Hopefully this is a one-off experience!
If you want wonderful greek food..go to Nostos. Traditional appetizers are not to be missed. Their lamb supplier is the best in metro area. Lamb chops are meaty, seasoned and grilled to perfection. The baklava crumble was perfect ending. Ask for the "quiet" room if you want a more intimate evening.
We love this place — The food is divine and service is always top-notch!
Went there for Valentine's day. Was a very nice ambience. The food and service were very good. The best value was the $65 pre fixe menu. For what was offered, the $85 pre fixe was a little expensive. Over all it was very enjoyable.
This night was off, Valentines day.. fixed menu but service and entree were not as normal. Fish was not de-boned at table dry and had bones , waiter dropped fork on my jacket clearing a plate, didn't come to check if it was dirty
to many people for the resturant
Food was terrific
Always great food.
Wonderful meal and service. A little noisy which is a reflection of its popularity. Highly recommend.
We are Greek and the food is top notch. The ambience is excellent and the service was very good. The owners are also there to greet you and treat you like you are at their home and you were invited for dinner. Great place!
Nostos is our favorite restaurant! Go there whenever we can, but this was for our anniversary! The freshness and simplicity of cooking is amazing; great meal every time along with great wine and service!
We had a great time for lunch. We truly enjoy the ambience and the food.
Nostos continues to be an excellent choice for both lunch and dinner, with a variety of Mediterranean dishes and good prices in an elegant setting.
Great menu, food preparation 9.5 (1-10), wonderful ambiance, service could be better and more personal. You will not be dehydrated: water glass is refilled as soon as you take a sip, if you want it or not. Prices are about 20% higher than it should be.
Authentic Greek food and liquors served with fine complements.
We have been going to Nostos for YEARS!! Peter the owner is the most gracious host as are his daghters and the rest of the staff. The food is consistently delicious.
If y ou have not been do nor walk but run!
Everything on the menu is delicious and the ambience is so nice and peaceful.
Great Greek restaurant with style and a creative menu.
The sea bass and the halibut entrees were delicious. A classic preparation with a twist that melted in your mouth. The stuffed grape leaves were very tender and delightful.
