A word from Lure - Atlanta
Inspired by classic coastal traditions both American and global, Lure presents Atlanta"s freshest fish and the drinks to match in a converted 1920's bungalow. Anchored in the heart of Midtown on Crescent Avenue, Lure has a sophisticated but casual vibe, fluidly bridging the gap between a weathered seaside fish house and a fine-dining seafood restaurant. Join us dressed up or down for a four-course meal or a beer and platter of raw, chilled and really fresh oysters. It's Atlanta's fish house for the adventurer, the traditionalist, the hedonist, the fish-obsessed.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "The oysters are so fresh and amazing, my friend who doesn't eat them tried one and we had to order more."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "This is a wonderful restaurant with great outdoor dining. It's noisy because the restaurant patio faces a major street; however, this does not bother me."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Drinks - perfect! Appetizers and starters - perfect! Entree choices - Perfect! Desert - perfect! Our little table overlooking Crescent Ave - perfect! People watching - perfect! Honestly, our entire evening at Lure couldn't have been better. Our server was fantastic and provided some great menu suggestions. This was our second time dining here (first time was in December when the outdoor patio was less appealing), and will not be our last. I'm still dreaming of that Peekytoe Crab dip!!!"

  • "Our group of four had a great time and enjoyed excellent service. Only downside - my pan seared sole was way overdone."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Interesting menu. Well-prepared food. Good service that was helpful and informative but not overbearing. Eclectic wine list (wish there were more choices by the glass!). Busy and a bit noisy."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "We can't say enough about what a fantastic experience we had Lure. The food was exceptional, the ambiance fun, and the service couldn't be better. The entire experience made for a perfect night of celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "The food was great and we had great service, and the pork and octopus lettuce wraps were amazing, both meats were soooo tender and had yummy flavor. We also had the mussels and I had the haddock and my friend had the vegetarian cauliflower steak and loved it. We will be back again....."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "I try not to frequent restaurants on Crescent - too crowded and too noisy. I can find options -- especially on Saturday. Boy, am I glad I Crescent-ed! Lure is a delight. Our main dishes, haddock, hake, scallops, were perfectly prepared and presented. We shared three apps -- all tasty and shareable. Service was impeccable. We even split three mini desserts -- I recommend the chocolate and marshmellow. If you want to have a decent conversation, stay away from the bar and reserve a table in the back or outside. That keeps the noise level down. (We even pulled a curtain by our table that lowered the noise from a large group just across from us. We will be back."

  • "The food, the staff, everything was fantastic! Just watch those cocktails; they will sneak up on you!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "It was a great experience. I definitely recommend the Trout pate and the grilled whole Rainbow Trout."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "all was excellent except its way too crowded...the tables were too close together...so close in fact I bumped elbows with the complete stranger sitting next to me...he said " they really pack 'us in here huh"...anyway, the food was outstanding and I'll probably go back but would it hurt to have a little more space between the tables?"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "3rd time here and consistently great! Not the typical menu and small plates are excellent."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "I enjoyed my meal at Lure but the service was outstanding. They were very attuned to my not eating the vegetable and asked me why. i told the server that it was a little too spicy for me. She offered to get me another but i told her not to worry about it. When she brought the bill, she took off the salad I ordered to offset the vegetable. I was surprised. I never had to pour myself more water either. It was a great experience and I was eating alone. Thank you!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "great food! great service!!! we had a fabulous time! can't wait to go back!"

  • "Three words: get the oysters! The pan seared sole is amazing."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "I had an excellent dinner the other night at Lure. I brought some real foodies along for a work dinner and everyone loved it all. The Octopus was outstanding and so was the Halibut. I recommend it fully."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Lure is quickly becoming my favorite brunch spot in Atlanta- with diverse menu of lighter and heavier options- and I like that I can make a reservation as I am not one of those people who minds to be put on a wait for burnch. Smoked rainbow trout is SO PRETTY and colorful but more importantly DELICIOUS! I was sad to see the rice porridge gone but hoping it might come back once the weather turns cooler. Ropa vieja was outstanding!"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and foods and the food was excellent: most memorable was the Rainbow Trout Pate. The restaurant decor was very casual and inviting. I would recommend this restaurant for any group looking to have a delicious and casual dinner."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We were celebrating our Wedding Anniversary and were undecided on where to dine. The ambiance was perfect for a date night out. We had great food recommendations from our server and great customer service. The octopus and lettuce wraps were definitely worth the try and the warm coconut guava cake was delicious. Complimentary valet parking is a big plus, too. We would go back for date night but also with friends or a larger party."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I did not enjoy waiting for 15-20 minutes when I had made a reservation the day before. There was no space to wait, and no explanation for the wait was provided. The food was decent, but not spectacular. Again, if you charge reasonably high prices, you should provide very attentive and professional service-- I am not giving away money. When a dish came out late and we were told it wouldn't appear on the bill yet it did, I simply deducted from the tip."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "My sisters and 23 yr old niece were visiting from out of town and I wanted a fun Midtown spot with good food to treat them. Lure was the perfect choice for our night out. The cocktails and food were great, and our server was that mix of helpful but not hovering. We ate a bit later, after 8, and so arrived when it was busy but then felt comfortable lingering as it got quieter. All in all a great choice."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Have eaten here many times--service is always spot-on. You must have the micha caliente drink. It is perfect."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We both had fish and the dishes were outstanding - perhaps the best I've had in Atlanta! Jordan our waiter also provided excellent service. Desserts are delicious and not to be missed as portions are just right. Place does get a bit loud after 630p so go early if you want don't want to shout to be heard."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Excellent service, from the host to the server. Staff attentive, food vey good"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "The place is very cute with a cool patio. The Gumbo is amazing! I had the fish taco, which was good. My husband just had a salad. Fun menu!"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "Love the smoked trout pate. Amazing. Leslie was a terrific server. The octopus / pork lettuce wraps are great. THe coconut/guava cake is delicious for dessert or save it for breakfast. No kidding. get them to put the creme fraiche on the side if you want to take it with you. It's worth it!"
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "We had a good meal at Lure celebrating our anniversary. The service was great, the noise level not that bad, the wine list was interesting...not large, but some good wines. The oysters were a bit on the luke warm side...should have been colder. The drink size was absurdly small. The mains were quite good, if not amazing. (It's hard to impress native Floridians with seafood.) The appetizers were pretty interesting and very tasty. The whole trout was wonderful, really...the lightly fried catfish was nice, and the sides were really quite special. We'd go again...not out of our way, but a nice choice in the arts center area."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Wanted to check this out for some time. First visit for a special occasion. Service was outstanding! Food was very good as went with small plates. Try the pork & octopus wrap and sea scallops cerviche!"

  • "Dined on the patio at Lure with friends. Perfect evening. Service was great and the food and presentation was the best ever. The Chef there is amazing and the whole staff is. The seating host, waiter, and even some of the other staff were top notch. Chef David, Erin, Kelly, Ernest. Could not have been more perfect. Thanks for a perfect dining experience."

  • "my wife and I went for a casual dinner and we loved our meals (we've been before). Lure is a great spot for fish, so come prepared to order fish. If fish/seafood isn't your thing, you probably won't like it as much"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "Our server was inviting, warm, caring and knowledgeable. I have the $10.00 choices - Clam Chowder and a Fish Taco. The chowder was creamy, tasted great and just enough. My girlfriend invited me to Lure for my birthday. We had the blueberry crunch cake for dessert. OMGoodness, scrumptious. Later that afternoon I received a voice mail from our server, Christina apologizing because since we were celebrating a birthday the dessert should have been free. She indicated we could come again, and the dessert would be on the house. I advised my girlfriend since she paid the bill. We will definitely be going back. We have a great time!"
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "I have eaten at Lure probably 10 times. all have been outstanding....except this last time. the food was "ok" and that is me being kind. I will go back...but I will give them a few months to sort out whatever happened."

  • "Great neighborhood seafood restaurant. Perfect for work lunches. Love the wait staff!"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Always love dinner here but brunch is JUST as fabulous! The rice porridge with pork belly & ginger & soy is ridiculous! There are so many wonderful sounding things it was hard to narrow down so I will just have to make a point to go back soon. Lure your brunch is ON POINT!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "We had been trying to get to Lure for a while. Persistence paid off. The food was wonderful and the service even better. We were seated at a table for three in the back. This was perfect for us as we were entertaining and out of town guest and wanted to hear the conversation. The chef does not go overboard and create complicated dishes. The dishes are comprised of generous (but not too generous) portions and the seasoning is great. We were a little disappointed in the dessert we ordered and the desserts selection in general. Overall, can't wait to go back."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "THis was our second time at the restaurant and we had a very nice meal, service was great. We would definitly reccommend this restaurant."
