As always, the food and service were outstanding. I really appreciate all the safety measures they've put in place and was very comfortable dining at the restaurant.
Amazing evening at Nostos! The food never disappoints, the service was great, atmosphere given the current Covid situation made me feel safe and almost like we are back to normal. We will be back!!!
Wonderful evening in the shady parking lot with friends. Great service. Delicious, fresh food. Wonderful drinks. We’ll be back!
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.
Food was great. Social distancing handled very well. Service was attentive. We so enjoyed a night out!
Great food. Great service
Great place- we love it! So nice to celebrate our anniversary there.
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.
A welcome break from sheltering. Octopus is a highlight. Nice list of Greek wines. Server was outstanding
It was just perfect. The best Greek restaurant south of NYC...period.
Just as outstanding as always
Father’s Day. Dinner was great as always is! So happy to be able to enjoy this wonderful food and fabulous staff again!
The food was outstanding and the service even better. Thank you for making our Father’s Day special.
Best customer service! The lamb chops could be a little more meaty, less fatty. They need to add hummus to menu.
the branzino / Mediterranean sea bass is just spectacular, have not tried a better one anywhere else.
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.
We took my visiting sister and brother-in-law to dinner at Nostos. It was a very lovely experience for all four of us. Great service, delicious food, and I love the contemporary décor at this restaurant.
Out door dining was fabulous. The setup is beautiful and ambiance great. The food as always was delicious and the Nostos team very attentive. Hand sanitizer wipes were there upon arrival and given again after the meal. Perfect night out.
Food was fresh and tasty. Service was excellent!
I always feel like I am in the Greek islands when we go to Nostos. Authentic and highly recommend everything My favorites are the lamb and the bronzino
Love this restaurant, especially now with outdoor seating. Food was fresh delicious & the service impeccable on this beautiful Friday evening.
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.
We recently went to Nostos after the Phase 1 opening, and sat outside on a beautiful evening. The service and food were great as always, and we were just delighted that the restaurant opened. Happy to support this team!
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.
