Lure - Atlanta
Great OystersHad an awesome girl's brunch last Sunday on the sunny patio. Champagne and oysters were awesome. It's nice to see a good selection of my favorite mollusks including some from Cape Cod- YUM! I also recommend the octopus wraps and the clam chowder. Staff was friendly and attentive. We'll def be back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFifth Group does it again!We had an excellent experience at Lure. Service was impeccable, food was fantastic.

This was our first visit to Lure, but am sure we will be back for future Special Occasions.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Pre-Symphony experienceSaturday early dinner before the symphony was lovely. We seated outside, no problem whe it started raining since the roof can be closed. Cocktails are fun and original. Food was excellent. A little loud if seated inside, so outside is a good alternative. I will dfeinitely go back.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful Spot!Two couples met here for dinner and had a wonderful, unhurried dinner. The bar was excellent with a very personable bartender. Our table server was intelligent, courteous, and very knowledgeable. It was a memorable experience and we will be back.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent and creativeLure has jumped to the top of our list of fish places in Atlanta. The food is great very fresh, very creatively prepared, but not weird. My sole in brown butter sauce was just perfect. And the mint, ginger, and herb salad might actually be the best appetizer salad I've ever eaten. We've now been here three times and each time has been terrific, so it isn't a fluke. Very highly recommended.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Seafood DestinationThis was my second dining experience at Lure. Both times were with a small party and the both times we received excellent service from the wait staff and the food was phenomenal.

The food was attractively presented with creative items on the menu. Good portion sizes.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service. Our waiterExcellent service. Our waiter was totally knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list. We had gone for an early dinner before a performance at the Alliance theater. Our waiter asked about our time restraints and he assured us that everything would be served in a timely fashion and it was. This is an excellent restaurant to have dinner before any performance at the Woodruff Arts Center or a visit to the High.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen going to the AtlantaWhen going to the Atlanta Symphony dine at this restaurant

When the dining experience was over and I had a chance to reflect on my experience, I consideredyself most fortunate to have selected Lure from the myriad other choices! What a find! I will add this to my list of go to places in Atlanta!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome business lunchHad a nice business lunch at Lure. The music was not too loud allowing us to have a nice normal conversation. We were treated very well from their greeting to departure. I loved the gumbo and my entree, octopus and pork lettuce wraps. I walked over to the Chef and complemented him on the fine meal.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMVisiting from out of townVisiting from out of town for business, what a great restaurant for dinner.. Food was unique and satisfying while the atmosphere was perfect to discuss business in comfortable setting. Dress up or down, you won't go wrong with this spot.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of ATL's Top Dining ExperiencesOur experience at Lure was perfect. We had oysters, the pork & octopus lettuce wraps, the salmon, the monkfish (it was amazing), the chocolate peanut butter mousse cake, and the toasted almond ice cream with cherries. All of it reached beyond our expectations in its perfection. I thought our service was good the entire meal, but my expectations were exceeded when our desserts were offered as complimentary since our entrees "took so long to come out". I hadn't noticed, but they had and they proactively took care of us. That kind of stuff gets me every time. When you combine that with the very pretty decor and the general nice-but-not-over-the-top-ness of the place, you get a great dining experience. I hope to return to Lure, it was fabulous.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous food! Lovely experience!Best seafood I've had in a long time in Atlanta! I highly recommend!Desserts, too, are delicious.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe lure of Lure is irrestibleThis may well be the premier seafood restaurant in Atlanta; the food is imaginatively conceived and beautifully prepared.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLure is great!

The octopus was the most tender the table had ever tasted. The waitstaff was right on. This 2 hour brunch experience during the Final Four weekend was amazing,4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner/loud neighborsWonderful seafood and other great preparations. Waitress was most attentive and really knew the wine list. She made excellent recommendations after listening to our likes. We had a relatively early reservation and had the pick of our table locations. Wish the hostess had notified us that a very large (and rather boisterous) group was scheduled to arrive within an hour and occupy the space behind a curtained off area. Had to almost shout to be heard, which detracted from the overall experience.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!Amazing! The food is always wonderful and the service was impressive.

The Smoked Fish Platter and Octopus Wrap were prepared so well. The Octopus was tender (we learned later it had been sous-vided) and the smoked fish spread was delicious. So was the smoked salmon -- delicate and fragrant and sliced very thinly, just the way it should be. We decided the Mushroom Risotto was one of the best risottos we have ever had. All in all, a really great dinner.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic seafood place withFantastic seafood place with great ambience and top notch service.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe discovered Lure a few weeksWe discovered Lure a few weeks ago and stopped by at the bar for drinks and appetizers.

Would have liked to have seen a little bit more selection on the beer list. The appetizers are way over-priced for what you get, but they are very good. The entrees are also very good, and more reasonably priced.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMVery GoodLovely ambiance, impressive service, and great food (AND the chef made special accommodations for the vegetarian in our party). Inventive cocktail menu, to boot. Definitely planning a return visit.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Love! Second time aroundLove Love! Second time around was as fabulous as the first time!

It was even better than people had told us. The cocktails, food, wine, and service were all just tops. (Monkfish wrapped in bacon ... need I say more?) Everything was fresh and inventive. Our server, Chris, was engaging, knowledgeable, and very solicitous without ever being overbearing. All in all, a truly terrific experience and we will return often. Among the best meals we have had in Atlanta, and that is saying something.12/1/2012 12:00:00 AM
