“Really enjoyable!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

My husband and I wanted to try this restaurant after reading all the good write-ups and hearing good things about the place. It definately did not disappoint. The food was fabulous and the service was fast and prices were very reasonable for what you receive! Our server, Mitchell, made our evening extra enjoyable because of his friendly and humerous personality. He was kind to give us recommendations on the menu such as the Duck Appetizers and the BBQ Chicken & Thai Ribs. The food was excellent and the portion was so large that we split the main course. Mitchell even gave us some tips on other places we should visit while here in New Orleans which was a great help. You could tell he loves his city! Would highly recommend this restaurant and will definately try and go again before we leave. What's handy is you can take the St. Charles Trolley to and from this restaurant from Canal Street if you find it too far to walk (I think it is a half hour walk). Only costs $1.50 each way. Worth the trip!

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Ok if you have never gone, please give this place a chance you will never forget it. The drinks are great try the spa martini. It is so refreshing on a warm afternoon. The thin catfish is great, red beans and rice like my mama's. I tried the rostierre chicken with basil sauce and it was out of this world good.

“Great food, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

I've been eating at Zeas in Lafayette for years. Most places were booked so we road the trolley from the French quarter and spotted Zeas so we hopped off. So glad we did. I think this location is even better that the one here in Lafayette. The catfish was cooked perfectly. Thai Shrimp were great as well. I would def recommend! :)?

“Nice service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We had a group of 10. They went out of their way to set up tables at the last second. Service was attentive and friendly. It is nice to not have to ask for water refills over and over. Thai ribs great. The grits are the best over and I am a serious grits fan. You will be hard pressed to find better ones anywhere. Yes it is a chain. So what. We got great food at a good price.
