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.

We shared multiple dishes and everything was wonderful. It was our friends first time at Nostos and we had not been in person for nine months. Lots of space between tables. The branzino was truly delicious.

We had a wonderful Valentines Day dinner! The food was delicious, authentic, and fresh. The service was fantastic and despite the restaurant having a tight schedule on reservations, they accommodated us when we booked and we'll be back again soon!

The restaurant is conveniently located on the first floor of an office building. My wife and I didn't have any problem finding that place. Because we had a reservation, we were seated very quickly. The restaurant environment is decent, quiet, and clean.

It seems that most waters there don't speak much English. After we were seated, no one came to greet us in like 5 minutes. I had to find out who our waiter was.

The food is just so so, mostly pre-prepared. Some are obviously overpriced. I was not expressed at all.

Overall, our dining experience was just ok. It's not a restaurant I would keep going back.

Has and will always be the best GREEK dining experience in the DMV. Peter and his family have created the “Best of the Best” when it comes to cuisine, ambience, and service. It’s the place to dine ALL THE TIME.

We had very poor communication with the server. I’ve had him several times before , while very nice ,under unmasked circumstances there seems to be a language barrier with him and difficulty understanding what I’m asking for. The masked service was very difficult.
I dine with you often and really love it but this server
makes for a frustrating night. It also makes it hard when I’ve brought a guest bragging on your delicious food and the waiter and I cannot communicate - I never know what he is going to bring to the table. Typically, I don’t complain but this last time really interrupted the flow of the night.

Food was fantastic with beautiful presentation. It's a gorgeous space and it felt special being there. Although a stone's through from Tyson's Corner, it felt like a high end DC restaurant. We will definitely be back!
