Recently went here with some coworkers. The red beans and rice with fried chicken was awesome. The atmosphere was nice and the wait staff was friendly and attentive.

Being unwilling to wait for two hours to be seated at a nearby restaurant, we walked down St. Charles St. and found Zea Rotisserie and Grille. What an unexpected gem ! The outside of the restaurant doesn't give you a clue about what you are about to experience when you walk in. Understatement leads to an awesome dining experience delivered... More

Zea's food is delicious. They have many options, and I've never had anything that I didn't really enjoy. The thai ribs and their corn grits are amazing! Definitely give them a try.

It had been a year since my last visit to New Orleans and Zea, but the wonderful previous meal made it a mandatory return dining experience.... Last time around, the food was close to great accompanied by mediocre service, but on this occasion everything was simply outstanding! It is difficult for this writer to believe that such a casual establishment... More

Rarely does one stumble upon a wonderful meal for a very reasonable price for a family of five. The rib eye and veal were superb as was the appetizers. The shrimp appetizers, both, were superb. The red beans and rice as well as the corn grits were excellent. So much food was left over we could have shared entrees. The... More

We took the street car here for lunch during "Coolinary Month" in August. Wow, what a pleasant surprise! I had Asian spiced edamame and fish tacos. The flavors were spot on. Nice spice and everything was cooked perfectly. My husband had the Miso glazed shrimp which, was the best dish of the meal. He then had the tenderloin with a... More

My wife and I took a nice evening streetcar ride around 7:30 pm from our hotel on St. Charles Avenue to come to eat here. This was our 1st visit here, so we wanted to check it out. We walked right in, met by a nice lady & was seated very quickly! We were served by a waiter named Joshua... More

Our favorite location is the original location at Hickory & Citrus. Great for lunch and dinner. Rotisserie meats are all good. Innovative menu. Casual but upscale dining. A definite cut above Applebee's or Olive Garden. Approaching a Houston's or J Alexander's. Worth the trip.
