Recently my husband and I returned to Zynodoa and were pleased to find that the quality and service continue to be excellent. The restaurant is small and casual, staff is helpful and friendly, and very able to make helpful recommendations. I started with the broccoli appetizer and it was delicious--wonderful sauce, perfectly spiced and a large portion. My husband had... More

We went to Zynodoa after a matinee at the Shakespeare Theatre around the corner. We had great expectations, due to the reviews and that as we favor regionally sourced restaurants, and that may have affected our opinion of the meal. It was good but didn't rise to excellent. My husband enjoyed a rich cauliflower soup. I had fried oysters appetizer... More

Really tasty meals, pork shoulder that melts in your mouth and tofu curry which was delicious. Try the cornbread starter, with a crisp browned top. Great waiter too. We'll come back for sure.

Zynodoa is in the very cute historic downtown of Staunton, around the corner from the American Shakespeare Center's Blackfriars Playouse, and while it doesn't have its own parking, there is street parking and there's a parking lot a few steps away. It's quite small, so reservations are a good idea. For a fine dining establishment, it has reasonable prices (especially... More

My table mates enjoyed their Polyface farms chicken,tuna, shrimp and grits; they shared a tasty tiramasu. I did not find anything on the menu that appealed to me, so I settled for broccoli soup. A peanut hummus with bread filled me up. Not particularly quiet atmosphere, but Bill, the waiter was very good. Try it. You don't have to pronounce... More

This the best farm to table restaurant I have been to. Truly a gem in this cool little town. Service was great. It's not cheap, but real food cooked well never is.

This is my second review of Zynoda. It is becoming a tradition for us to go here on my wife's birthday. We went this year with our daughter and I can't say enough positive things about Zynoda's excellent staff, food quality and beverages. Very creative and we loved their "Farm to Table" concept. Their menu varies according to what is... More

Thanks to a cancellation we were able to get a reservation on a busy Saturday night. I had fried oysters - which were perfection! My husband had a butternut squash soup - quite delicious. I got peanut crusted catfish over kale and butternut squash, my husband got yellowfin tuna and oxtail - both dishes were wonderful. For dessert we shared... More

We celebrated my bride's birthday with dinner at Zynodoa followed by a play at American Shakepeare Center and an overnight stay at the Stonewall Jackson Hotel, all within the space of a city block. Our Mobility limitations makes that important to us. Gracious, friendly staff, quick but non-intrusive service and delicious food and wine greeted us in our first visit... More

We were so busy enjoying our food and wine that we forgot to ask about the name, which we assumed was a play on "Shenandoah." Great cooking, not over fancy. Good wine selections. Professional service. And less than a block from the Shakespeare theatre and the Stonewall Jackson Hotel. Who needs to drive after such a meal?
