A culinary oasis in the Shenandoah Valley

I have been traveling up and down this corridor (interstate 81) for almost 40 years at least a couple times a year. While younger it was always a stop right along the highway for a quick this or that with nothing worth remembering. Now older i've been a little more selective in what I eat and where... read more

This restaurant is my wife and I's favorite! We come here for special occasions like birthdays and anniversaries, The Porkchop is amazing and every waiter is the best in Virginia. If you are in Staunton you got to go, reservations recommended

My friend and I dined at Zynodoa before seeing "Measure for Measure" at the American Shakespeare Theater in Staunton, Virginia last Friday night. After driving through the pouring rain to get there we were happy to be greeted by our friendly server, Kayleah (sp?). She asked if we were seeing a show and when we said we were she made... More

Great atmosphere, attentive server, and awesome food. I ordered the tasting menu, and couldn't have been more pleased. A great way to sample the best the chef has to offer.

This is a high-end, new American restaurant in rural Virginia. There are not a huge amount of trendy restaurants close to the Shenandoah Valley but Staunton seems to be something of a foodie hot-spot. Zynodoa can be difficult place to get into at the weekend, we saw many couples turn up to either be turned away or have to endure... More

January 2016 -- first time at this restaurant having failed previously to obtain a reservation because it was booked. Can understand why. Outstanding service and food at a price that is moderate by city standards, (hw)

This is an exquisite restaurant if you, like me, are a foodie. The menu is Farm to fork and represents the region well. Great meat options and a nod for vegetarians. Superb wine and beer menu. Food is beautifully plated and matches a romantic ambiance. The prices are not for the faint of heart. If you are from Northern, VA... More

Delightful evening at Zynodoa. We had the salad, Rainbow Trout, and the Pork Duo. The trout was fab. The pork was tender but there was too much fat for Dave. Will return!

I have frequented this restaurant over the years when in town. I have always looked forward to dining here.. the personnel, the ambiance and the food are wonderful. I dined here several days ago and I was thrilled! The new chef in residence has tweaked the menu and it was just delicious. The lobster bisque was out of this world.... More
