I was disappointed in the salad/salmon that I ordered. I don't remember the name of the salad but it was supposed to have black olives and white beans. The salad had about a can of white beans (way too many) but no black olives.

Being a Greek restaurant, I would have preferred having pita bread rather that white bread. I did ask but never got an answer and was just served the white bread.

Took a friend to Nostos for her birthday as she was interested in Greek food and we had never been to this highly rated restaurant. We shared appetizers got different main courses and each had a dessert. The food was excellent as was the service.

This was our third time at Nostos, and we enjoyed the food very much. The noise level in the front room, even at lunch, is too loud to allow pleasant conversation. This time we asked to move and were seated in the back room — it was very comfortable and we were able to enjoy talking with our friends without yelling. Another good option, at least at lunch, is to sit in the bar.

Have been to Nostos many times since it opened years ago and keep coming back for the authentic Greek food and friendly service. Perfect for any occasion that requires delicious food made with fresh ingredients, excellent service, in a lovely setting.

Thanks Papano for another wonderful evening.

Great food. Energetic ambiance. Just if the hosts were a little more attentive & quicker to respond, this would be THE 5 star joint in the neighborhood.

The best Greek food I have had since visiting Greece a couple of years ago. The food is extremely authentic. Baked cheeses such as Feta and Haloumi -- delicious and authentic Greek Salad (no lettuce just like in Santorini) -- fantastic branzino just like in Naxos. To get food this terrific you would literally have to book a flight to Athens and travel to various islands.

Nostos is always delicious! The trio of dips, the Bronzino or halibut are great choices, The chicken skewers too! I love the baked eggplant dish, it’s one of my favorites so I am hoping it hasn’t been removed from the menu permanently. Always save room for the most incredible cheesecake you’ve ever had!

The finest in Greek dining outside of Greece. Every choice from soup to appetizer to fish or lamb is delicious. As are the deserts. Lamb youvetsi, salmon, baklava are specialties. The service is warm and very friendly.

The food was excellent, as always. Our waiter, however, was not as good as others. Service was slow and when I was out of my wine, he did not ask me if I wanted more in a timely fashion. In addition, we had noted it was my birthday and Nostos did not do anything. Perhaps that is their policy?

I have dined at Nostos since it opened, but have not been too frequently. This is one of VERY few places in the DC Metro area that consistently delivers the same very positive experience, which is great food quality, a good value, bright but calm ambience, and excellent service.

To celebrate my wife's birthday we dined at Nostos. As always, the food and service were outstanding. This has to be one of the Top 25 restaurants in the metro area. If you plan to visit it is always best to make a reservation. We were there on a cold , rainy Tuesday and the house was full. We had a reservation and were seated promptly. Enjoy the Kolokithakia and Saganaki as small plates. A must do entree would be the Sea Bass. Enjoy !!

This is one of our favorite restaurants. The food and service are always excellent. Love the decor, but the first room can be noisy. The second room is much better and our favorite waiter (Sotiri) is usually serving there.

Have been here before and really enjoyed the food. This time the food was mediocre and the server didn’t seem very familiar with menu. He was not at all perceptive to what we were looking for when making his suggestions-nor was he accommodating when asked about making some minor changes to dishes plus didn’t bring my husbands drink till we were almost at end of our meal. Little disappointed this time.

I read so many good reviews about Nostos Restaurant, that I gave it a try. The cheese tray was very good. I ordered the octopus dish, and I was not 100% happy, although it had the grilling flavor, it was not crispy at all. The restaurant was packed and it was very difficult to keep a conversation between my husband and I. Service was a little scarce but I guess it was because they were very busy.

Fantastic meal from start to finish! Clearly marked gluten-free menu items. Very good service. I will definitely go back!

We were a table of 3 and shared appetizers and entrees so we coukd sample more of the menu. Try the swordfish kabobs and Greek cheese platter, you won't be disappointed!
