    I made reservations through the OpenTable App. I arrived about 15 minutes early prepared to wait since there was a wait list & lobby full of people. Instead I walked through the door, gave the name of my reservation and was promptly seated. My server (Jacob) came to the table within minutes of us seating down. He was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu which I loved. I very much appreciated the time & focus he gave me & my mom as it was a very busy night for Zea's. Not once did I feel rushed or less important than any other guest. Lastly, the food was awesome!! And I think Jacob may have hooked me up, but I got the hugest portion of Sweet Potato Bread Pudding I'd ever seen. And it was the best thing ever!!! Completely made my night (Since I had been saving calories to enjoy this item alone). Really enjoyed my visit. Would definitely recommend it to others.

    Atmosphere was good and service personnel great. Probably would order next time what the restaurant is known for, i.e. chicken, beef, ribs, etc. fish dish average, and fish taco's below par. Salad good as were the sides , particularly corn grits. Was not too happy about 4.50 per bottle of Heineken's.

    Zea has fantastic food, great ambiance, and wonderful wait staff. Took my significant other there for his birthday and had an amazing, romantic time. The waitress was very helpful and courteous but did not annoying stop by and check on us every 10 seconds. Graciously gave my partner a free birthday dessert, which was fantastic. I highly recommend the Mediterranean hummus (which is great with both the pita and cucumber slices), and my partner raved about the ribs. Will definitely return!

    A very nice dinner. We began with and Old Fashioned and a Z margarita.The food was very good. There were two of us. We both had the crispy duck with braised cabbage and grits, and a nice bottle of zinfandel. We will certainly return on our next trip to the city.The service was superb.

    We always seem to order the same; never venture too far off of what we like. I did have the roasted chicken breast with the Zea's salad. It was loaded with roasted red peppers. The corn grits were good albeit a bit on the dry side. But still tasty nonetheless. Will come again.

    The number in our party changed several times prior to our actual reservation time and the staff at Zea never faltered in adapting to the extra guests. Mike, our server, was very attentive and friendly. The food was very good and we served in a very timely fashion. We are looking forward to our next visit.

    I did not appreciate the fact we had too wait to be seating because 2 of our 6 guest were there. The restaurant was not even packed so we should have been seating. The ladies at the front were very rude and I do not think I will be going back. I can understand us not being seating if the restaurant was packed but it wasn't. The food was ok, but I don't think I will be dining there ever again. But I must say the waiter Christian was the best!!! He was on point and I really enjoyed his company as our waiter.

    Me and 5 of my friends went for my birthday, we had a very nice waiter but the food wasn't on point. Two people in my party got pasta which they didn't eat because the noodles were under cooked. I got a fish dish that was pretty good but the portion was small so we had to get food again later that night.

    Food was good. unfortunately, the restaurant was out of two dishes that we wanted (spinach dip and a duck dish). I understand that these things happen, though. What we got instead was still delicious. Our server was attentive and nice, however I forgot her name. (Sunday - first two seater booth)

    We moved to Katy TX from Canada two years ago and my wife said this was the best restaurant meal we have had since we moved. My 12 year old daughter asked if she could come back here for her birthday dinner. The duck empanadas and shrimp appetizers were awesome. Everyone had different main dishes that included 1/2 chicken, BBQ ribs, veal dinner special and the twice roasted duck. My wife had the duck and would not share as it tasted so good. Brownie dessert and turtle cheesecake finished off the meal. The staff serving us were great.

    Zea's surprised me with their customer service. It was a busy Friday night for them. Wait was about 30 minutes. However we put our names on the list to be called but I told the hostess to call me or text me when ready. 45 minutes later with no call or text we decided to go back in and ask bout the wait. She apologized about not calling us, and made it her duty to find us a table. We got sat right away and plus they gave us an appetizer on the house for the trouble.

    We were seated almost immediately, even though the restaurant was packed. Unfortunately, it was packed with a bunch of middle/high schoolers who were apparently on their way to a dance or other social function, so they were running back and forth between tables, which added to the already hectic atmosphere of a very busy restaurant. That wasn't the fault of the restaurant, though, so I give them a pass on that. The service was efficient and our server was friendly, and the food was quite good (if served a bit lukewarm.) We'll be back!

    My wife and I dined at Zea's for the first time last week. We chose it because we were looking for something we had not tried before. The food and menu looked good from their website so we decided to give it a try. The reviews did not lie, Zea's was very good. They have a daily selection of rotisserie entrees with other great dishes. Everything we had was very good, I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.
