Description: We may not take ourselves seriously, but we always take our food...
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.

Love Everything

The staff is very professional, the atmosphere is elegant and the food choices are great. You must try the corn grits, the shrimp appetizer and their signature drink - the frozen cosmopolitan.

Lovely staff and manager. Good menu with economical pricing. Excellent Mediterranean Hummus plate! Meats are nicely finished but lack consistent quality. Excellent sides! Sweet potatoe dish always a hit!

Zea is a great place to dine. My brother introduced me to the restaurant and it was one of the best things he could have ever done.

We met my son and daughter in law here for supper. The restaurant has a nice decor and the wait staff was great. I can't say the food was exceptional though. It was average in taste. I've had much better meals in less expensive places. I would go back and try again because the atmosphere was relaxing and nice.

Had lunch here with some friends and really was not very impressed. On the up side, the hummus appetizer was good; however, my hamburger tasted like it say under a heat lamp for some time. The fries were limp and tasteless. Don't understand how a place can mess up a simple burger and fries.

We stopped at this restaurant on our way from Texas to Florida. The Hilton Garden Inn recommended it and gave us a coupon for a free dessert if we ordered two appetizers. This restaurant has a huge menu with a wide variety of dishes. They had Greek, Middle Eastern and standard American. The menu and waitress advised us to share... More

The biggest complaint I have about this place is there is always a wait! Their cheeseburgers are really good, one of the best in Lafayette. I also really love their hummus appetizer. $6 wine night on Mondays is a great deal!

Zea's corn grits and Thai rubbed ribs are the very best! The food is average price about 45.00-50.00 per couple. The service is excellent and ambiance is very pleasant. All around nice date night place!

Everything was excellent. I had the Thai ribs. They were awesome. My wife had the salmon and loved it. The roasted garlic Hummus is great! The Asian almond shrimp was great also. I highly recommend this restaurant! Everything including the service is excellent,

Found on TripAdvisor excellent excellent restaurant, had the half rack of ribs grilled asparagus and sweet potato and the ladies were so nice when they found out I was from out of town, they threw in in a wonderful salad and some of their cornbread grits! Would highly recommend this restaurant, great service, great people!
