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.

This place is always good for any occasion. We love the honey island chicken sandwich and always split it because it is huge. The hummus is very good as well.

I eat there three or four times a month. YUM! Food is very good and very consistent. They have changed the menu and there are some new and interesting items. The lettuce wrap is great!

My review is based on more than half a dozen visits, I have no complaints about the quality of food. My favorite is their sea food, shrimp, fish and crab cake. This is a busy restaurant and the service is not always quick but you will forget that after you taste the food. When you are done consider trying java... More

I have been to this restaurant twice since August 2013 when traveling. I like the variety of food and the roasted corn, red beans & rice and rotisserie chicken is awesome. It is definitely worth winding through the streets of Lafayette! If you are there are on a Wednesday, try the special, Fennel Crusted Beef Sirloin!

If you are looking for red beans, (brown) rice, fried chicken, andouille sausage and it isn't Monday (a southern tradition), then head to Zea's. They have it every day of the week. Not to suggest the other menu items aren't worth trying, but I think this is the best dish served. If you like humus, their Mediterranean version is terrific.... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Lafayette. The food quality and superior service is consistent. It does not matter what you order, it's always done to perfection. Zea specializes in roasted and grilled meats but also has a great selection of appetizers and salads. Among my favorite dishes are: Mediterranean Hummus, Thai Ribs (THE very BEST!), Rotisserie Chicken,... More

We knew little about Zea's except it was near our hotel...but we are very glad we found it! I find myself thinking about the delicious Thai ribs long after my trip to New Orleans was over! Many great dishes to choose from and they have hard-to-find small plates. YUM!

I have eaten at this restaurant and never had more than a five minute wait. Their food is fabulous....everyone living should try the corn grits....to die for. The thai ribs are awesome, the Asian shrimp with almonds are out of this world. The service has always been excellent and I always look forward to dining there. It is a favorite... More
