Great place to come with your family or a group because everyone can find something to make them happy! Favorites include: roasted corn grits, chicken and spinach salad with pepper jelly vinaigrette, trout (all ways), red beans with fried chicken tenders, tuna sashimi stack, asian almond shrimp, and thai ribs. Service is always good, too!

Zea's always has good food. The Asian shrimp appetizer is awesome, we usually split the large one.Barbecue chicken, sweet potatoes, and corn grits are what I get. Husband has wet Thai ribs. Never had a bad meal here.

Big fan of Zea's food, it is spectacular and the service is excellent. I find that their prices are getting pretty high though - so we don't frequent them nearly as often as we used to.

This is always a favorite when I land in New Orleans. It's just minutes from the airport and always ready to fill me up. Don't tell mom. But seriously the Thai ribs are amazing and let's not forget the shrimp and grits. I could go on about the menu. By the way the red beans and rice, ooooh weeee.

First time trying the Lamb Sirloin on the suggestion from my waiter. Excellent meal. I never know what to order when my wife and I visit but I will definitely will be ordering the Lamb Sirloin again. Excellent meal. Highly recommended!

Consistently good food. Service is average. Excellent bar atmosphere. Fair value. The ribs and corn grits are a favorite. Ahi Tuna salad is always a good bet.

Zea's breaks all stereotypes of restaurant chain food quality and service. Make this your first stop when you land and are headed to the French Quarter. They're open late and have a big tasty menu. Drinks were yummy too. We were blown away by the quality and taste of everything we ate. By far, the Thai Ribs were the absolute... More

A favorite of mine is a southern classic -- their specialty is grits that have cheese in them. They are delicious. Goes great with the chicken or meat.

We really enjoyed this place. The atmosphere is very nice, the food was excellent and the service was amazing. Jonathan B was so attentive, friendly and made great suggestions. Lots of food selections on the menu. Located in a mall so you can shop or stop in for a movie.

Thank Rollingst1
