Zea's of Lafayette is no different than Zea's of Metairie & I wasn't impressed one bit with the Metairie location. My family and I, a group over 10 were waiting for a table since 640ish. We didn't get pulled in until 8 something. The atmosphere was positive and mellow, the restuarant over all was clean however, we had two waitresses for the two tables and this is were the trouble rang in. One table had a waitress on point, they received their drinks and appetizers in a jiffy however our waitress a the second table would have been taken for fresh meat. Half of our table got drinks and 7 minutes later then the other half. The waitress from the other table eventually started bringing drink refills and meals to us because our waitress wasn't on top of it. The meals were cold when we got them and we waited long enough, but all for mediocre tasting fish,burgers,ribs,and fries. Mediocre being nice.I can honestly and finally say I have tasted commercial catfish. The catfish had plenty on the plate, but no taste and the cabbage was just boiled lettuce, no taste as well. The only thing satisfying was the red beans with rice which sadly was small portioned and the sweet tea was great. The bill was expensive enough without the added gratuity tip due to a large party and if the option was there, I would have taken THAT off. Good thing this location is far off Johnston Street, it doesn't deserve to be at a high traffic area and I could happily pass it up if it were with a terrible thought and face that is. I wouldn't recommend it because I wouldn't go to again. I might not even go to the theater near it, just so I don't have to be near Zea's.
