“Great place for a long lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013 via mobile

I met a friend for lunch and to catch up. We had a wonderful meal, delightful desserts and some great coffee. Service was wonderful and the noise level was perfectly acceptable. It felt like fine dining at lunchtime prices. I plan on taking my husband for dinner sometime soon. My only note would be for folks not familiar with Tyson's to take the directions from the website - it is really tucked into the office buildings.

“WOWIE! WOWIE!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Best ! BEST ! Greek food I've eaten this side of Atlantic ..and maybe even better than in Greece( just there last April).
Traditional food with a gourmet twist... The roasted beets were mouthingly amazing! Lamb chops were perfect. Plain old Horiatiki salad was straight from the Mediterranean! the Cretan wine was succulent. Duck breast with squash was above and beyond! AND it was well priced. Great value and I loved the interior decoration. The only problem is... We live in New York!

“Fine dining surrounded by noise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

We ate there once. The hard flat surfaces of walls and ceilings amplify the noise of fellow diners. The surroundings are sparsely but tastefully decorated, and the service is impeccable. The menu is extensive, and the dishes are artfully prepared and generally delicious. But, we will not return there because the noise level ruins what would otherwise be a superb dining experience.

“Great Greek Food in the NOVA Suburbs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Nostos serves very fresh and delicious Greek traditional dishes. I typically do not eat dessert at Greek establishments, because chocolate is important to me and there is rarely any chocolate. However... at Nostos the desserts are worth it. For example, the shredded phyllo dough stuffed with walnuts and honey, served with ice cream, is wonderful and satisfies my sweet tooth.

“Wonderful upscale Greek gem in N. VA”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

I had to circle around a few times before I found the restaurant (the sign was not lighted and it's set back from Leesburg Pike in an office building). Once inside, we were greeted warmly by the hostess and the service continued to be professional and gracious throughout our meal. We shared several appetizers (fried greek cheese, zucchini with tzatziki and an eggplant spread with pita). All were delicious. Everyone had a cocktail and agreed that their bartender knows how to make a good drink. For entrees, there were a few whole branzinos and several lamb dishes, all of which were superb...simple marinades which enhanced the flavors of the meat or fish rather than hiding them. We even shared a few desserts which were typical but yummy. One word of warning on the greek coffee...it comes in tiny cups and is quite grainy. If you don't drink it all quickly, it becomes congealed and looks like a lump of chocolate pudding.
We arrived on the early side and were the 2nd ones in the dining room so noise wasn't an issue but by the time we left, the dining room was full and more "lively." I wouldn't say the noise was a problem for us.
