Description: We may not take ourselves seriously, but we always take our food seriously. Generic is our mortal enemy.A truly American restaurant always has an opinion.At Zea, we state ours confidently, unapologetically and with a little swagger and laughter. Maybe it's our New Orleans roots, but we know good food. And our personalities are as bold as our menu items are flavorful. As with most lovable southerners, what you see is what you get at Zea. That simply tends to be a lot of extraordinary. Go ahead - try anything on the menu. And don't worry; you'll be hungry again in a few days, inspiring you to come back and try something new.

Reviewed June 1, 2013

Our server was very attentive. Thai ribs for appetizer was especially flavorful. Fried Chicken and red beans and rice had good flavor as well was cooked well. Great atmosphere, good dining, and attentive staff, what more could you want.

“Ah Laks Da Ribs”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

The Thai ribs, to be more exact. Or the Thai shrimp. With grits. And sweet potatoes.

Only thing is, with so much butter used in the food, a little goes a long way. But what you take home still tastes pretty good the next day, too.

This place is always crowded, and you're likely going to have a little wait, but service is good and efficient, and you won't be rushed once you are seated.

As with many restaurants today, there is a noise factor here, so your conversations will be a little strained.

Good for lunch as well as dinner.

“No complaints here!”
Reviewed May 27, 2013 via mobile

I have been here for many special occasions. For food has always been succulent. When it is busy, like most places, the service is slower. It can be pretty pricy but it is a place I would not mind splurging a little at. The lamb is very good, by the way!

“Delicious Ribs”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Very good restaurant with lots of interesting choices, such as hummus, ducks, and an assortment of ribs. The chicken and rib plate can easily feed two people. Expect to wait a little while to be seated.

“Good food--but ask what they're out of first.”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

They are somewhat notorious for running out of things toward dinner time, so when your server comes to get your drink order, ask what they're out of before you get your heart set on any one thing. The grits are fantastic, as are the Zea potatoes. Last time i was here I ordered the tuna steak salad & it was fantastic---big portion, good amount of fresh tuna, light and refreshing but filling at the same time. They also have their own beer brews, so be sure to check those out.
