I have had dinner here a few times now and have not been disappointed. The service is great and the ambiance was pleasant. I love that they embrace the farm to table tradition.

Turned left out of the hotel looking for somewhere to eat and stumbled on Zynodoa. What a very fortunate encounter. Food was very good, fresh and portions generous. Martini was very good and service excellent. Thanks Zynodoa (btw what the hell does that mean?)

On our way from PA to Florida, based on Trip advisor reviews we dined at this restaurant and we're happily satisfied with food experience. Fried oysters and trout were delicious and mu hubby had scallops and Virginia cheese tray which he described as exciting new taste experience native to Virginia. Our sides included grits fortified with cheeses and butter and... More

Nice place. A little pompous for me, but perhaps it was my overly-familiar waiter who would rather talk than serve us a pre-theater dinner. I'll go back, mostly because they strive for farm-to-table local products; but I won't make it a special dinner.

Suggest larger portions and / or lower prices. Seating and atmosphere need improvement. Sales tax of over 11 percent gave me indigestion.

I'd really like to rate Zynodoa higher. Our waitress (Lisa) was fantastic and knowledgeable, we were seated and fed promptly, and I loved their commitment to local meats and produce. My trout was delicious and their dessert wine selection is excellent. However, the otherwise delicious cheesecake gave me the worst night of intestinal distress I have ever experienced and nearly...

We enjoyed a two appetizers and drinks after a performance at Blackfriar's Playhouse. The waiter was far more accommodating than usual in assisting us at finding menu or drink items which would meet our interests. We sat in some wonderfully comfortable bench seats near the front window. The food was delicious and perfectly sized.

We were expecting better things as this restaurant got some of the best ratings in Staunton. The food was OK. Nothing bad about it. It was a little too salty and not a lot of flavor. My wife had the sea scallops and requested that the curry beurre blanc not be included. This resulted in a salty, somewhat bland dish.... More

As visitors from Washington, DC, we were looking for one good meal during our visit, and we had a terrific dinner at Zynodoa. My husband absolutely loved the pork loin. He was surprised to see it arrived shredded instead of whole, but once he took a taste he was thrilled with the flavors. I ordered the scallops, which were flavorful... More

My boyfriend and I came here for a nice dinner out. We had reservations for 7pm and were seated right away. It was busy and a tad noisy. Our waitress, Kayleigh, was phenomenal! She was very attentive, knowledgeable, and made great recommendations. I had the trout and my partner had the pork. We wanted a bottle of red to share... More
