The same each time. Nothing spectacular, but always a pleasant experience. Near home, convenient, neighborhood, modest in price (affordable), good cocktails.

We were in the bar and making all the noise. The dinning room looked nice. The food was way beyond my expectations and delicious.

My family and I were headed to a Pelicans game stopped at Zea before the game,we even called our order in ahead of time. 4 burgers,3 sides of fries, 1 side of corn grits.the burgers were so burned we couldn't really eat them. It was a horrible experience.we drove down from mobile.

We eat at the Zea’s in Lafayette often and it is one of our favorite restaurants. The food or the ambiance were not nearly as good as the Lafayette location. Ribs were over done and corn grits were dry and not as good, at all.

Very good food. The restaurant itself needs a bit of TLC, especially the water stained ceiling panels (yuck!) Our server was perfunctory with his service, despite it being very uncrowded when we went at 5pm. At least it was very quiet and we could talk.

Though the atmosphere was quite busy, as it was Fathers' day, the Management person kept her cool in the midst of the busyness and ensured all were seated and cared for with professionalism and courtesy. I commend her and the wait staff highly as they never wavered or missed a beat in their service and I was quite impressed.
This was not our first visit and rest assured it will most definitely not be our last.
Thanks much!!!

Will never go back to Zea at that location again. The FOUR girls working at the hostess desk were clueless and incapable of helping anyone! We had a 1:15 reservation, it was packed and they should all be fired. After 10 minutes of standing around waiting, we walked out. They had no idea what they were doing, would not answer anyone’s questions and were just completely inadequate at their jobs! What a great start of Father’s Day!!

Was bringing my 89 year old Dad to lunch so I made reservations for 1:15. Arrived at 1:05 and said I had 1:15 reservation. Hostess flipped over the page, saw my reservation, scratched me out then apparently added me to the running list of walk ins without reservations. Was told it would be about 20 minutes which we were ok with but we did not get seated till almost 2:00! 50 minutes after arrival and 45 minutes past reservation time. Unacceptable!

Table setting was very uncomfortable. Tge host put two different size tables together and my on of my guess sat in between two diffrent size table. I ask if the could accommodate my guess do they are eating in top of each other and the answer wad straight out no they could not do anything. I asked why did they put two tables together that's different sizes and they looked at me as if I was being unreasonable. I will not recommend this location for Zea's nor will I visit this location again as well as one of my guess asparagus was completely burnt

We were there 15 minutes before the restaurants last reservation yet they were sweeping the floors, lining up chairs and going about their cleanup business that should take place after the official closing for the night. Made us uncomfortable. Service and food was ok. Would go back again

They were out of rotisserie chicken. Had the roast pork - not very good. Didn’t like The gravy they put on it. The almond shrimp appetizer was better than the entre.

Went to their newest location which was supposed to be an experimental concept to revitalized the brand. Unfortunately this new concept lost the Zea charm of a cozy location to a bright TGIF like feeling. Further the food did not have its home cooked savory taste. The mediterranean hummus in the past was large order of hummus with sun dried tomatoes, various toppings and warm pita bread. Unfortunately, this time the hummus tasted store bought, did not have the various toppings and the pita bread was luke warm to cold. The server was slow as well. Zea had it right with their Garden District location, it unfortunate that it’s closed and that’s when the restaurant jumped the shark. My last time visiting Zea.

Wish they would bring Mizado back. Food not that great. Ahi tuna salad was terrible. Wine too expensive for the pour size. Won’t go back.
