Based on everyone we spoke with while in Staunton, we were expecting more. While the service was excellent and food good, our table was in the worst location possible, right next to the kitchen passthrough. You can imagine how noisy it was. We were offered...More

I had the chefs tasting menu. One dish was a little salty for me. The kitchen quickly made me a new one and it was perfect! My husband had the chicken livers and tuna which he enjoyed. If we were home we would have licked...More

We have eaten at zynodoa four times, and each visit is better than the last. The restaurant procures its excellent materials from farms near this charming Virginia town, noted for the American Shakespeare Center. The menu varies by the season, and we have had the...More

I don't think so but you can call them to confirm. They do have a wide selection of wines especially from the Virginia wineries.
