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.

It's Lavraki season so it's a must-try.
Sesame crusted feta with red pepper sorbet is delicious.
And their orange cake is heavenly!

Nostos is excellent and outside tented seating makes it an easy choice for business lunch and evening date night. Great food and great family-run, elegant service.

Nostos is always a favorite and I highly recommend the Branzino and grilled octopus dishes. The outside seating option is nice, too.

My girlfriends and I went here after work for a nice dinner. The service was incredible and the food was absolutely delicious. We shared some of the dips with the pita bread that came out nice and warm. I had the brandZeno which was perfectly cooked and is my favorite. The fish came with a side of potatoes and greens which I enjoyed. We also had the octopus for appetizer and my girlfriends ordered the chicken skewers, the meatballs, and vegetable lasagna and everything was outstanding. We had a bottle of sparkling rose and really enjoy the evening. Hats off to the chef and round of applause to staff for being so attentive.

Wonderful. We had not been there in a while and were thrilled to see the efforts to reduce the noise level by putting in a new floor. And it works! I had wanted to show out of town guests a special place and I had been concerned about the noise.

Congrats!

We've been getting takeout from Nostos since the pandemic began, but yesterday we ate outdoors at the restaurant. It was so good to be back. The food and service were both excellent, as usual. And considering that the outdoor eating area is set up in their parking lot, the ambiance was very good. This is our favorite restaurant in Tysons.

First time eating there and will definitely be back... Our entire meal was perfection. We ordered grape leaves and sesame crusted feta for appetizers and enjoyed the tzaiziki dishes and lamb for our entrees. The wait staff provided wonderful recommendations and our entire experience was perfect.

We had a lovely lunch outside. The service is always superlative to match the food. The Bronzino is expertly carved table side and is so fresh. Everything on the menu is delicious. Nostos is doing a great job with cleaning and sanitizing during COVID. The best Greek experience in the DMV.

Food was good service was not

Not sure why for 35 dollars an entree the bus boy brings me a box to wrap things up. Don’t tell me it’s because of COVID

It was my 4th time and this one wasn't a great one. Previously it was great. Food came lukewarm, my bronzini and the moussaka was so salty we couldn't eat it. Service was so so. I'm hoping that it was just that one time. I am not sure I'll go again.

Wonderful place for Greek food & to have a meal with friends. There were 6 of us. I'd recommend the saganaki for an appetizer. I also had the swordfish skewers The young lady who served us was great at recommending wines & the food.

Nostos is a beautiful restaurant with a nice atmosphere. This was our first time here and we were not disappointed. We shared the Greek salad as an appetizer and it was fresh and flavorful. Then, I had the filet mignon skewers, which were cooked to perfection. The wait staff were kind and very prompt.

First time back since C19 and it is still as wonderful as it was before. Such nice people, great service and wonderful atmosphere. We sat indoors at distanced tables and had a fantastic meal. The Octopus is not to be missed.

Nostos has never let us down. The food is outstanding, whatever we choose, and the waitstaff is friendly, helpful, and attentive. The owner came by to check on everyone. We ate outside, in the tent; there are heaters but the evening we were there was warm enough that we were comfortable without extra heat. Nostos is the closest we’ve found in this area to a taverna in Greece.
