Love dining here! My food was great, but my sister’s scallops were a little over cooked. Other than that, great place for solid Greek meal.

Always enjoy a night with friends at Nostos. They have the friendliest service in town. Only matched by delicious food. We always have to find room for baklava.

This was our third trip to Nostos. The food is consistently excellent as is the service.
The meatball appetizer is very good and worth a try. The authentic Greek entrees have yet to dissapoint.

The food and service was outstanding. They did not rush us out. We were there celebrating our son-in-laws 30th birthday and they let us enjoy our meal and a second cup of coffee - very nice. We will go back.

We love Nostos-great authentic Greek food and excellent service. It’s BYO too which we love. Lots of variety. Tip: service is fast especially if they aren’t busy so if you want more time just ask -we always put out apps in first and order dinner later when the apps come.

A group of 8 of us tried Nostos on Mother's Day, so perhaps it's not fair to rate a restaurant on a busy day like that. We arrived on time for our 1:45 reservation but had a wait of 25 minutes to be seated. I understand that on a holiday groups may linger longer than normal at a table, so I was willing to forgive it. But the service was sooooooo sloooooow. We were finally seated just before 2:15 and it took another 50 minutes before we were served our orders! That was just too long, even for a holiday, although the server was friendly. My chicken and spinach was tasty and my husband's salmon was too, but my mother in law didn't care for her shepherd's pie (which was recommended by the server). She said the mashed potatoes atop the shepherd's pie were very salty and the lamb was tough, had quite a bit of gristle and was leathery in texture. My father in law didn't care for his calamari and said that the breading was too heavy and that the rings were cut too thick and made them hard to chew. My 3 daughters ordered gyros and they all enjoyed them. I thought the tzatziki that accompanied the gyros was delicious. We all ordered desserts and everyone thought the baklava had too much clove in it, but the semolina custard with lemon syrup was one of the most delicious things I've eaten in a long time. So overall, the meal was very slow and uneven but I would give it another chance because I really enjoyed the things I ordered. I'm hoping our next visit will have more expedient service!

I would not go back there again. I took my wife and daughter in law there for Mothers day. The food had very little flavor and we ordered several things from different places on the menu. Food was very salty No olives anywhere! thought this was a greek restaurant? Wait staff handed us the menu and did not take the time to explain anything on the menu or the specials. Overall very disappointing

Pleasant surprise! We were in the area after a somewhat late engagement. Chech Open Table and to my surprise a Greek restaurant in the area less than 5 minutes away. Food, service and decor were all except for well above expectations. The Lamb and Rice Soup was very good, but the Grilled Octopus, Mix Grill, and Eggplant were totally scrumptious. Our Server was very sweet and attentive, but not obtrusive. Well worth going out of your way for this one. We can't wait to go back when we're in town.

I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely will return to try more dishes. The sampler appetizer was a great choice to try new dishes and the vegetable soup was tasty. Entree portions were large (we took home boxes!) and the Baklava was among the best I've ever had. Service was well-timed and friendly.

Minimal-ish decor, food is excellent but all dishes may not be "hearty" (it's Mediterranean), quiet enough for discourse.
