Description: We may not take ourselves seriously, but we always take our food seriously. Generic is our mortal enemy.A truly American restaurant always has an opinion.At Zea, we state ours confidently, unapologetically and with a little swagger and laughter. Maybe it's our New Orleans roots, but we know good food. And our personalities are as bold as our menu items are flavorful. As with most lovable southerners, what you see is what you get at Zea. That simply tends to be a lot of extraordinary. Go ahead - try anything on the menu. And don't worry; you'll be hungry again in a few days, inspiring you to come back and try something new.

For the most part the food is great but when its not its unbeatable. Pretty hit or miss with them. The wait to get a table is always long. Great servers. Alway fast and friendly. They have a bar to watch the games on tv. it's always clean and decorated great

We've been to Zea's many many times the food and service has always been very good. We visit Lafayette area quite frequently as my husband is from this area and we have relatives living in this area. Zea's menu has something for everyone and the food is very good.

Zea is a fine local branch of a franchise from the New Orleans area. They can be counted on for carefully prepared fresh seafood and "friendly" dishes such as their Thai ribs,. These ribs are tender, well seasoned and generous servings of small pork ribs. Their rainbow trout is excellent as well although not a "local" fish. Ther tuna salad... More

Zea's consistently has healthy fresh food cooked without heavy batters and high carb side, although their cheese grits are wonderful. The Pesto Trout is herb crusted fish but not over cooked. Highly recommended.

We were just passing through, but decided to try this restaurant based on the tripadvisor review. It was packed with a long wait, but we were able to get a table in the bar area. Most people were dressed up. This show of popularity was a clue to how good the food would. The cobb salad was excellent, rich in... More

I have tried this place four times so I am NOT quick to judge! However, each time I go in there, I find the employees to be a bit uppity and I just cannot deal with that. The thing that disgusts me the most is that if you sit in your chair and look around the crown molding, you can... More

Food is always good even though it competes with many locally owned restaurants. Great sides like red beans and rice with fried chicken. Salads are great. Service is typically good. It is a little pricey but not for what you get. The duck is excellent as is ROTISSORIE chicken. Better than a cheap restaurant with bad food. You will not... More

I was told to try the short ribs and the truffle mac and cheese. Definitely not good for the workout but so worth the calories. I had the prime rib one visit and seasoned chicken the next.

Zea is a great place where you can always get a great meal. The cheese grits are my favorite. Great cocktails. A wide variety to choose from. You can always know you will get a great meal with great service every time.
