Great food. Such a variety of dishes. There is something on the menu for everyone. My favorite is of course corn grits and duck empenadas and the hummus.

One of my favorites in a great food town. Simple and elegant menu. enjoyed the rotisserie chicken with red beans/rice along with braised cabbage. My lovely wife had the strawberry chicken spinach salad. Fantastic service and well executed food. we will be back oh, and try the hummus.....probably the best i have ever had.

we have never had a bad experience at Zea's. It is a S Louisiana restaurant based in New Orleans with a huge local following. The food is always excellent and the drinks are generous.

One of the things I prize most in a reataurant is consistency, and Zea delivers consistently every time. The food and service are excellent, and their daily specials are very fine. I love the cheese grits, the Thai beans, the roast beef, and the pesto encrusted fish. But I tend to gravitate toward the red beans and rice served with... More

Had New Year's dinner with my family and was disappointed again. This is my third visit and it has been over 2 years since my last meal there - still can't seem to get it right. Our server was very inexperienced and asked if we were going to order an appetizer after we had already ordered one with him. We... More

Hello Tony, I am disappointed to hear of your dining experience this past Sunday. From what I can tell the food was on track but the server was far from our standard. I am proud of what we offer, both food and the experience. If anything I offer is not exceptional I do really need to know. I would like... More

Came with a friend, my first time in Lafayette in a long time and was looking for some great food. And wow this place was exceptional. The corn grits was as great as I had heard and lamb and fried catfish (the meals we settled on) were knockouts. Also had a side of their red beans, and it too was... More

Thai Ribs, Grilled Portebello Wrap, Lamb Chops, Fried Catfish, Shrimp and Grits were among the things that were ordered at our table. All were cooked to perfection! We eat at Zea's often. Always consistent, always wonderful!

Zea's is our go-to place for family and extended family dinners whether it's Lafayette, Baton Rouge, or Covington. Always professional, prompt, and serve great food. Love the Southern-fried catfish personally but must start with Mediterranean hummus or Thai ribs. Salads are good and filling. Their bar area is great for gatherings with friends after work.

Thank tanyac41

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.
