    I've been meaning to try Lure for quite some time and am so glad I finally did. Very warm and attentive service and the food surpassed expectations. Each dish was just the right size portion and the flavors were extremely well balanced and nuanced. Definitely recommend for a fun group get together.

    I know there are fans of Lure but I definitely would not go here again. I make better fish dishes my self especially whole fish. The other diners food was good but nothing spectacular considering the price. Would not go back and we were entertaining.

    Great place to celebrate something during the weekend. Reservations were surprisingly easy to make on Friday for Saturday 5pm for a large group of people. Food is excellent. For me the coolest feature of this place is design mimicking interior of a boat.

    My first time at Lure in NYC. Food was very good. Service was terrific. We had a wonderful waitress and the sushi was fresh and delicious. The only negative would be the noise level was very loud!We had a table tucked away in the corner so I did not get the full vibe of the restaurant but I would certainly go back!

    My husband and I stopped here for drinks a while back and decided to come back for dinner, since the menu looked very appealing. We ordered the Chatham Cod and the Blue Point oysters. The fish was very fresh, but to tell the truth, it didn't blow me away, and the oysters were very pretty ordinary. I wish we had ordered the grilled octopus instead. I think the issue was more a matter of our choices than the quality of the food. We ate at the bar, and the bartender, Rebecca was awesome--she was fun and very friendly and made the experience very enjoyable.

    Came here for late dinner with a couple of friends visiting. The 4 of us were seated promptly, waiter was and fun and very helpful. Their restaurant week menu is the best deal in town, all dishes are exceptional! My friend's shrimp tempura were so delicate and crispy, yummy! The steamed red snapper was from a different planet. Amazing! We never felt rushed. The decor is very nice (a tiny cold for me but still!) You can have a proper conversation without yelling yet their is still some ambiance! I love this restaurant. I should come more often. From beginning to end, it was amazing.

    Came here for restaurant week and had a very good time. Unlike a lot of other restaurants that have "special" menus, Lure offered many of their regular appetizers and mains. All of the seafood we ordered was fresh and well-prepared. The swordfish was particularly delicious, as well as their warm chocolate cake with ice cream and popcorn. When we started our lunch, the restaurant was mostly empty and quiet. By the time we got dessert, the space had filled up with more diners and it got really loud (interior made to look like a yacht, so lots of hard surfaces, I guess). Overall, service was very good.

    Went for restaurant week and they exceeded my expectations. The ambience puts you in the "at sea" mood, hence seafood restaurant. The hand-crafted cocktails are superb, was nice to see a unique cocktail listing with great deail and thought put into the ingredients versus a long listing of generic cocktails. Not many (none other than Lure, I've expereince so far), gives you a half dozen of oysters on the half shell for an appetizer on restaurant week. Main course had great selections as well and they included the special of the day as another bonus option. Chocolate cake w/ salted caramel ice cream & popcorn garnish = Best Dessert ever! Long story short, I will be returning again even if its not restaurant week! Excellent option.

    Came to Lure just on a whim. Ive always heard great things about this place and they delivered on every aspect of it. The signature cocktails are $16 and worth every dollar. Nothing is worse than a pricey lackluster drink. The drink were amazing. They did a good job featuring some of their best dishes on the Restaurant Week menu. Excited to have a new place to dine when shopping in Soho.

    Though reservations for the times I wanted weren't available, Lure was at least 35% empty when I was there, which included unavailable times. Appetizer and dessert were exceptionally good, but the sushi was disappointingly pedestrian, with small pieces. Green tea was a mediocre bag. Ambiance and service were very good.

    The food was mostly good; for the right stuff a 3 (out of 5). One of our special of the day entrees (the Rockfish) must've been the end of the batch, because it came out overcooked and rumpled skin. After sending it back the flounder was better. The service on the other hand, well atrocious is the only way I can describe it. They rank a 1 star for the service. We were seated promptly and then waited 20 minutes before we even got water. There must have been a shift change at 7:15, on a Sunday or else they just were inept. VERY disappointed after being so highly rated. Can't say to anyone it's worth a try, even with decent food. Skip the 'al'lure of this place and try one of the dozens of other great seafood/sushi places in the Village.

    Loved the creative interior decor that makes you really feel like you're dining inside a luxury yacht. The raw platter was delicious and clearly using some of the best and freshest quality seafood. The entrees were just ok and not particularly noteworthy, would really go back for the raw seafood platters and desserts!

    They need more training for the waiterservice people. They need to know better what they are serving and if not, they must get the information right away so that the cusomers can pleace orders better. The person who is serving was training a young person and I was afraid that the younger one does not learn much from the person showing her. It was quite noisey and had a hard time conversing. All that said, the food was good and my friends were happy. That is all that counts for me since I was the one to ask them to try this place.

    Lure has officially become my go to restaurant for lunch in SoHo. The oysters are ultra fresh and tasty - easily some of the best in Manhattan. Last time I visited I had the Miso Glazed Salmon off the restaurant week menu and it was brilliant. The salmon was cooked to perfection and served over a bed of sauteed sugar snap peas and shiitake mushrooms. I'm still craving those flavors and it's been a week. Dessert was amazing. A super simple butterscotch pot de creme that was just the ideal way to end the meal. Can't wait to visit again.

    We went here for my husband's birthday.We arrived a bit early for our reservation and met the restaraunt packed with happy hour patrons.Understanding we would need to wait, one of the three the hostess VISABLY looked at my husband and my mother-up and down-with discust and proceeded to ask them to "step out of the sight line of the main entrance."Another told my mother "not to touch her flowers" and the other stood in silence as the other two snubbed my guests.The did not take offense becuase they have a patient nature. I, on the other hand, was visably appauled and decided to speak with the manager if my experience did not improve. Thankfully,it did.The food was excellent and the service staff were more than accomidating. He felt special.
