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.

The sign of a good restaurant is not just good food only but consistent service. Time and again the service here is outstanding.

Excellent food and service. Our waiter was very personable and remembered that we enjoyed white wine on our previous visits. Love the table side flambé saganaki. We also enjoyed both the Greek and beet salads. The salmon and vegetables were delicious as well as the mousakka.

We have been to this restaurant a number of times. This was the first time we ate outside. The floor under our table was really wet (as was a good portion of the floor in our area). This made it impossible for people to put purses on the ground. It also gave the tented area an unclean look. Also, our server was not particularly attentive and didn't seem to know anything about a number of the dishes on the menu. Based on this experience, I would not return until it's safe to dine inside and hope that things have improved.

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!

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.

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.
