I have never, ever left Zea's without some food to go! The menu is based off rotisserie meats, but also offers plenty of other options, many of them in various combinations. The sides are good too, and always ask your server if there are one or two off the menu sides. The Zea label brews are good too, especially the... More

Food was great. We ordered from the lunch menu. I had the ribs - prepared wet (bartender brought a side of the Asian sauce - it was awesome...next time). The wife had shrimp étouffée...also good. We will go back before we leave in 3 days.

Zea tends to be a little expensive, (imo) but everytime I eat there it is very good. The fish, the broasted chicken, the ribs, everything is done well. I've eaten at everyone of their locations and they are always consistant as well.

Just landed from the UK and even though we had been up for hours we decided to have a walk round the area. We knew we would be too knackered to enjoy the Halloween parade if we went up to the French Quarter but we thought a drink and a bite to eat would at least mean that we had... More

We ate at Zeas twice during our NO visit.The food was excellent and the generous food portions made it impossible to finish the meal.Could not resist to take dessert to go.The turtle cheese cake was sinful.

Husband and I shared the Mixed Grill and the Grilled Vegetable Platter. Everything was delicious! Especially the Thai ribs (tender and tasty) and the grilled veggies. Also even though we are not hummus fans, the Mediterranean hummus was wonderful. Great atmosphere and service.

I've always hated this place. The food is bland and not worth my money. People rave about Zea's and I still have no idea why..

My husband and I shared Duck Empanadas as an appetizer and they were so very good and different. My husband ordered his favorite meal when he visits, the Thai Ribs; which I tasted and they were tender, with such a great flavor. I had the Pesto Crusted Trout and I absolutely loved it. I would so love to know how... More
