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.

Gerardo provides excellent service. As always, the branzino and lamb chops were amazing. The outdoor tent was beautiful and warm. It was a lovely evening!

Food was fantastic with beautiful presentation. It's a gorgeous space and it felt special being there. Although a stone's through from Tyson's Corner, it felt like a high end DC restaurant. We will definitely be back!

If you want authentic Greek cuisine with a warm welcoming atmosphere, Nostos is the place. Even running a restaurant during covid, the folks at Nostos continue to serve their customers on a consistent level. Lamb dishes are excellent, as well as seafood. Greek Salad is perfection, and the grilled octopus over fava puree is a fave.

They have fixed the one thing that lingered for so long... adequate soundproofing! new flooring seems to have quieted the noise level, so the dinner is much more enjoyable.

Can't say enough good things about Nostos! You are doing things right.

Nostos Restaurant, is one of the finest restaurants in the DC Metro area. Hands down, it is the best Greek food in the greater metro area. The food is as beautiful as it is delicious!

The service and attention to detail is unparalleled. The restaurant is elegant inside and offers good seating options for Covid as well as a lovely outdoor tent with lighting and heaters for outdoor dining during Covid.

My husband is not usually a Greek fan, but all three of us including our guest were delighted with our meals. Best Greek we’ve ever had. Two of us had the traditional Greek chicken lemon soup (delicious! I would love the recipe) and my husband had a very fresh salad. There was a mishap on the kitchen with my moussaka entree and the owner gave us 3 free delicious spanakopita while they recooked the moussaka. It was the best moussaka I’ve ever had. My husband and our guest shared the filet kabob (they ordered rare, but it came out medium rare and it was still really good) and halibut entree. Our server was attentive but not too attentive and very pleasant. We will definitely be back and recommend to others.

Nostos is doing a great job during Covid with outdoor dining and menus on your phone. Gerry always delivers superlative service with a smile. The food is consistently fantastic. The tomato salad followed by feta karpouzi with Bronzino to finish is perfection.
