“A terrific restaurant in Staunton”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

This is truly a find. A restaurant with locally grown food with a menu that changes daily depending on what is available. The food is outstanding - an appetizer Goat Cheese Tart with a shortcake crust was among the best dishes I have ever eaten! Terrific service - especially with our large party of 17 - this place can stand up to the best in much bigger cities - a place for Staunton to be proud of. We will definitely be back.

“An excellent and innovative meal!”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Zynodoa is a small restaurant with excellent food. I particularly enjoyed my mail course which was a very wonderful vegetarian option. It's main ingredient was beets served in an amazing broth with carrot puree and mushrooms. Highly recommend as it's innovative and delicious, as well as beautiful to look at. My husband had the trout which was also delicious.
For dessert we chose a very nice cheese plate which came with bread and fruit. Appetizers were also delicious. Ingredients used in the menu are local and that makes this even more special. Definitely go if you're in Staunton!

“memorable in all the best ways”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

For a milestone birthday, we asked Chef James to create a dinner for 8. After settling on a per person price, he crafted a surprize menu for us, noting that they would use whatever looked best on the day. Well, what a fabulous way to go! He used his considerable skills and a fabulous pantry of fresh, local foodstuffs to create a memorable, delicious, beautiful, unforgetable feast. Staff, A+.Food, A+. Unconditionally recommended. Thanks, Zynodoa, for an evening that was memorable in all the best ways.
