We have been at Nostos so many times since it opened and we never get tired. Peter and his team do a wonderful job of taking care of all the customers as if they are members of the family. Great food, ambiance, and just a great and reliable restaurant.

The restaurant was very nice, staff were extremely polite and pleasant. We were able to get a nice table, very quiet. The food was very disappointing for the price- we had two orders of octopus and it was so tough and overcooked that both my husband and son left plenty on their plates which is unusual as they both love octopus. The lamb shank was flavorful but very fatty- the orzo was delicious, buttery and very warming. My younger son had the chicken skewers- both were over cooked, dry and flavorless skewers that were definitely over priced (2 pieces for $14, no sides or anything else) also left on the plate. We were so disappointed that we did not even stay for dessert or take the leftovers.

Great server, who knew the menu well. The manager who greeted us also asked us how our meal was and seemed to care about our evening. Definitely recommend this restaurant and oh yeah, the food was OUTSTANDING.

Good tasted ok but portions were very small for the price. An octopus mezzanine/appetizer for $24 is outrageous. Everything just seemed small and when I arrived home I had to eat more (I’m a relatively small female so I can’t imagine how a larger person or male would feel). Server was pushy for alcohol (which I don’t drink) and by the end he never brought check and never even looked towards my table. When asked for our check he said he was letting us chat. Sounds nice but he could have at least checked if we needed anything etc. he literally never looked at us. Didn’t feel like the service nor the food was worth it. Won’t go back.

Wonderful in every way except the noise level. Very difficult to hear my companion with the very loud background noise.

Went for lunch-Excellent service after a slow start; lots of wine choices by the glass, elegant decor, excellent food seasonings, everything presented very appealingly, superb dessert, delicious coffee. Well dressed clientele, most with coats and ties.
Definitely will return.

Not optimistic as it was Valentines Day but food, service and ambiance great
Actually V Day might have helped as smaller groups reduced noise which can be a problem at this restaurant

As always Nostos does not fail. The trio of dips was wonderful and very tasty. The lamb and meatballs were exceptional. Nostos is one of the best restaurants in the area. Service is always impeccable, atmosphere friendly, and rare treat.

We dined on a very special evening..a chef from Greece, who came to Nostos for one week only, prepared the most extraordinary Greek tasting menu. The flavors and seasonings of each selection were seasoned with herbs from Greece. Be watchful for the next time, a guest chef is at Nostos. On any other evening, you will still be delighted with fine Greek dining. The family-owned restaurant with staff makes guests feel like family. We are grateful for Nostos.
