Delightful ambiance that even on a crowded evening had no trouble having a table conversation. Friendly staff, cold house brewed beer, and delicious food made for a terrific experience. I had the daily special roast pork and the roasted corn side. I'm going back to have the roasted corn again. Very tasty. I wonder if I can make a meal... More

This is a very popular restaurant chain in the New Orleans area. The food is very good, the service was friendly. The corn grits and butternut squash are sides that are definitely worth ordering. Our party had crab cakes, a panini, and the chicken and ribs plate. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The only thing holding back a 5 star review,... More

I have been to this restaurant several times and it has never been a disappointment. Whether you want to stop for a quick lunch and grab one of their awesome paninis or have a romantic sit down dinner this place will do the trick. Their ribs and chicken are delicious but one thing I will say is a "must try"... More

I had never heard of this place before but took Uber there from the hospital that my dad was staying at close by and it was a very pleasant surprise. The atmosphere was very nice and the inside was spacious with a very beautiful bar which is where I sat. Surprisingly they had a gluten-free menu and their rotisserie chicken... More

Love the variety of chicken salads. Service is actually nice and helpful and.not boorish. Ribs are good too. Been many times and cannot say I ever had bad experience here. I have had slow service once at the St Charles location but that was the worst I encountered at Zeas. Since then that location has relocated. I wish it hadnt... More

Met here for a business lunch - first time for me. Will be back. Staff was great! Food had lots of options, flavor and was well prepared. Rotisserie chicken and ribs were awesome.

We went here for a B-Day Dinner we were invited to, with no reservations so we waited 45 mins for 12 people to be seated, which was somewhat quick on a Friday night. We ordered the Skyfall Merlot which was good. The service was good, even though there were 12 of us. The Sashimi appetizer was really good, love the... More

The staff makes the difference. I was hosting a very difficult guest and the staff made dealing with the issues much better. Thank you! The food was great as are all the Zea's. There is an upscale air of comfort in the New Orleans Zea's I have not found in the other Zea's.
