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
  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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 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."

  • "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!"

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "We were looking for a new place to celebrate my birthday and we found it. We used to frequent Vickery's in the old days and were pleasantly surprised to find that Lure has done a great rehab of the old joint. Our cocktails were wonderful and original and teh Calamari appetizer was as good as it gets (tender and lucious). I had the tuna steak on a bed of lentils and loved every bite. My wife had the catfish dinner with the traditional hush puppies(delish) and their take on potato salad and cole slaw. She loved it all and the few bites that were passed my way were very tasty. For dessert I had the blueberry cake with pistachio ice cream and a shaving of cheese which was a perfect end to a great meal. We will be back .. maybe for brunch."

  • "I took my family of 4 for Father's Day. Jordan, our server, was great. He was attentive, knew the menu, and gave us a good descriptions to help us decide as first time guests. My college age kids were impressed as well. We will certainly be back."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I took a chance, being quite a foodie, and never visiting prior for our Fathers Day celebration. He LOVED IT! Try the trout pate, the scallops, and the chocolate mousse. Didn't like the chowder broth, but the four of us finicky eaters were pleasantly surprised with the experience!!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Simply put, Lure serves mostly simply prepared, elegant, extremely high quality food. Very close to 5 stars. We started with a few oysters that were outstanding as well as some smoked salmon that was solid, but probably the weakest of the excellent dishes we had. We then moved to the octopus + pork lettuce wraps, which were outstanding. Some of the best octopus I've had - highly, highly recommended. I had the scallops as on an entree, and it was just a beautiful dish. Perfectly cooked and delicious. My wife had the Mahi Mahi special, which was good, but not nearly as impressive as the scallops. Our server was excellent (wish I had caught her name). Extremely knowledgable, personable, and on top to things."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "My dad only likes salmon well well done (basically burnt) but many places just won't listen. The waitress and chef got the job done - he was happy and that was great for Father's Day. Love the "urban nautical" decor and the patio. My crabcake benedict was very tasty, but the eggs were a bit too soft."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Great brunch spot as the menu is diverse in all types of yummy goodness. The drinks are really good there too for an added touch. I love how it's really calming in Lure. Even on a busy day it's never too loud or crowded where it becomes overwhelming to dine. It always has a good scene"

  • "Lure is on our list favorite restaurants that we return to over and over again. It is walking distance to us, they have the absolute best trout in the city and a lovely deck outsidewhich gets zipped up in inclement weather"

  • "Nice setting, ok wines by the glass. Salmon Tartare, looked like it was out of a can, with large fatty pieces ground up, and pushed together. Calamari were very salty. Sole Fillet, very salty. Home-cut fries...SALTY, SALTY. "

  • "The patio was covered, lots of greenery, fans blowing cool air. Very relaxed atmosphere even though the view was of Crescent Ave. Service great. Food was fine. We had fish tacos and the roast pork sandwich for lunch. "

  • "We came for the 1/2 price oysters at happy hour. I'm not a seafood fan, but the rest of the group ate a bunch of the slimy little rascals. We sat at the bar at first, where the bartender happily got me a non-seafood appetizer, even though it was too early for the dinner menu. He also explained all the funky drinks to us. They have this cute little bottled drink, made in-house, called a "Micha Caliente" -- it's sweet and spicy and wonderful. Hubby & I split a bunch of drinks, which the bartender split into two glasses for us. Hubby got the scallops for dinner, which he liked a lot. I got a "Cauliflower Steak," which, I had to ask, is not a kind of beef, but actually a thick slice of cauliflower. It was delicious! Topped with fried onions. "

  • "The food at Lure was unbelievable. My guest and I had the raw scallops, crap dip, whole trout, yellowfin tuna and a couple desserts as well. The drink menu was great, and they even let us create our own drinks for the bartender from our table. The service was impeccable, we were checked on often but not excessively. We sat outside and even with a few minutes of rain, the patio had such a great ambiance. A little pricey but worth every penny. Portion sizes were perfect and the only complaints would be maybe a better view outside the patio and the valet brought me the wrong car at first. Overall and awesome experience, and I can't wait to find another excuse to go back! "
