Consistently good food and service

This is one of my favorite places to eat in Metairie. The prices are reasonable, portions plentiful and service is very good. I like the fact that you can get a lunch portion in the evening. Bronzed trout is one of my favorites but I also really like the Korean BBQ tacos. No problems with... read more

Pepper jelly salad with grilled chicken. One of my go-to meals at Zea. I love the 2 salad dressings. Can't go wrong with this choice.

I love Zea's restaurant .... It is convenient to get to and parking is easy and abundant. The food is delicious ......from paninis to full dinner menus. The corn grits are their specialty.... Wonderful appetizers, great entrees, great prices.

Made reservations for 6 to entertain relations from Boston. The restaurant called to verify and remind us on the day of our reservation. The restaurant is located in a shopping center with ample parking. The hostess greeted us upon arrival and escorted our party to round table in the bar area. The loud background music made it difficult to hold... More

Went there today and Justin made the meal memorable. I had the grilled Trout, sugar snow peas, and cheese grits. My wife had the fried fish, cabbage, and beans. The food was presented well and served quickly. We will be back.

Went to the Zea's at Clearview with my mom and step dad for a quick friday night dinner. We got there and it was pack but i expected that. What i did not expect was the slapdash way the buses cleaned the table and left it wet as well as the booth seats, throwing food on the floor. Then our... More

I love this restaurant. The Asian Almond Shrimp never fails. This particular location is not my favorite, however. It's located in a strip mall and has a mall entrance. The atmosphere was not the feel of a nice cozy restaurant, rather a mall restaurant. I would choose one of their other locations for the ideal experience.

The food was very tasty while the service was fast and friendly. I had the half order of Thai ribs and it was too much to eat with the two sides. The amber beer was also quite good. This was the best restaurant we at at during our trip to New Orleans. It was a recommendation from friends that we... More
