The corn grits and ribs! We had to wait a while, but food was delicious and hot! Clean, friendly service. I would definitely return. Moderately priced.

I found the menu not as good as some other Zea restaurants. It could be that the menus have changed since it has been about a year since I went their last restaurant that has now closed. The kids menu was good but was not thrilled with the adult menu.

Had a patron margarita, crab cakes & corn bisque while out to dinner with the family. Everything was good, although my soup was room temperature. Everyone's food was good, although my FIL send his shrimp entree back as there were 3 shrimp on a small pile of grits (totally not worth the price). Two sandwiches were supposed to be without...

My husband was going to be admitted to the hospital, so we were waiting for the papers to be prepared. My husband asked could we go get something to eat. We decided to go to Zea on St Charles. We ordered and the hospital called. The staff went into overdrive to get our order ready for us. I was so... More

Zea has grown over the years and I have only become more fond of its offerings. Although my favorite dish is long gone from the menu, there are other worthy choices. There are many locations sprinkled around the city offering good vibes and great food. Choose Thai ribs, hummus dishes, fish, luncheon specials, salads, even red beans and rice, you... More

I have only eaten supper in this particular Zea's once. It was excellent and the service was good. Over the years Zea's has been a standard lunch take out order for the work crews I have been on throughout Louisiana. The grits! I usually hate grits but Zea's are the best comfort food ever. We wind up fighting over the... More

Great meal for a family group of 18 people. Service was pretty quick considering the number of people. The spa martini is a highlight.

We always loved Zea. Whether we are doing a lunch with the family or an evening out alone. The rib choices are great and chicken is done with several different sauces. They have the Best hummas dish ever !

The very first time I visited Zea, I enjoyed the food....delicious! The shrimp and grits was excellent, forever sketched in my mind. Myself and company ordered the spinach dip and we thought it was less desirable, the trout was seasoned perfectly. Overall, I think this is one of the best restaurants in Metairie. Must visit.
