“Great food, great location”
5 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.

“You could eat here every day of the week and have a totally different amazing meal. I never get tired of the menu.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2013

The menu pleases every person in my family. Sometimes I prefer vegetarian meal(Hummus and grilled veggies) or sometimes I crave the Thai ribs. Its amazing!

“Excellent and reasonable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2013

Zea seems sort of hidden on the block, but check it out if you are staying in the area. The menu and food are fresh and excellent. The sides are mainly southern and well-prepared and presented. Snap peas outstanding, hush puppies perfect. We were pleasantly surprised by the quality of our meal and highly recommend Zea. The prices are also very reasonable!

“Our experience may have been an anomoly”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 27, 2013

Our waiter was ineffective and slow and clearly not well trained, our food took far too long to leave the kitchen although I could see an expediter in there from where we were sitting, we were served lukewarm coffee (even after asking for a replacement the first time) and our food was not well prepared. We would not return but since this place gets consistently good reviews, we assume that our table was just unlucky.
