Diner Reviews
  • "Interior Design is impressive. A special occasion spot. Enjoyable"
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "Upon entering you can't help but admire the nautical treasures throughout the space. Be sure to look at the 50's era photos of the Queen Mary and Fontanbleau. Wonderful and attentive bartenders, definitley sit and have a drink, either from the list or from their expertise. Things go down hill a bit after that. Our server Dennis was friendly but something effected the pace of the meal. So slow. 3 out of 4 of our dishes were raw so it wasn't the cooking. He seemed to only have 4 tables. Try the dressed oysters for a spin on raw, yes the pineapple salsa is all they say it is. I've had better crab cakes. This is a nice fresh take on Miami cuisine. Try the tropical paradise & key lime pie, both wonderful,refreshingly tart and big portions."

  • "We were staying at the Lowe's Hotel for a company event and was recommended by one of the staff there. I'm glad we gave it a try because we had a great time! The staff was friendly, great ambiance and the food was delicious! Highly recommend this place. We will definitely come back the next time we're in Miami."

  • "At the beginning; The hostesses offered us the opportunity to have a drink at the bar while we waited for the rest of our party, and the service started to set the bar high from there. Bartenders were very inviting and cocktails were both creative and well crafted. Moving to the table we were greeted by our waitress and between herself and the remainder of the service staff, we were treated to a superior dining experience. Food was delicious, although not overly inventive. Sushi was clean and fresh, and the flavors came through on the tuna tacos, as well as the sashimi. Very fit for the expectation based upon previous reviews. When looking for a quality seafood restaurant without the steakhouse vibe, this is it. Would definitely return."

  • "The menu is excellent and the fish outstanding. But you can get a steak too. The service was the outstanding. Be sure to ask for Brian. He knew the menu, the bar and the kitchen. His recomendations are 100% and really made our visit special."

  • "Great food, professional service. Great place. I definitely will go back. Also, I undwerstand that there is same restaurant in New Your City. I plan on eating there too."

  • "The food is exceptional, we had the tuna rice cakes , lure house roll, sea bass ceviche, bucatini pasta with butter poached lobster and last but not least pot of gold for dessert. All of our dishes were exceptionally delicious and complimented with outstanding service. Our overall dining experience from beginning to end was phenomenol. This place is a definite if you are in the area!"

  • "Big fans of Lure in NY. Menu and prices are similar. Great seafood."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "No complaints, because everything was fine and well executed, but Lure has a stunningly boring menu complemented by exorbitant prices and skimpy portions. We tried about of everything fish/seafood related and were impressed by nothing except fresh ingredients."
    Dined on 4/2/2014
  • "As with all Miami Beach restaurants, this one was very loud, mostly because of the music (with the sub-woofer turned up to the max). In addition, the tables are wide, so talking to my dinner companions was particularly difficult. We had to do a lot of leaning in. The food was delicious, but he main courses are skimpy and minimalist given what you're paying. For $36, couldn't they have thrown in a few vegetables on my plate along with the small piece a fish and the tablespoon of rice?"

  • "Great Food, Fast Service and Pleasant Staff! Restaurant had a Vibrant Vibe and booths were comfortable. I would definitely return for dinner."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "The food was very good. I was offended that we had to pay $15 to park and also that a tip was added to the bill. We were told in another restaurant that adding a tip to the bill is unlawful in Florida."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Food was tasty. Sushi fresh and so were the fish options; however, not something you cannot eat anywhere else. The service was slow due to the waiter being busy with other tables. Would have to sit waiting on the bottle of wine to be poured throughout the entire dinner. Sushi and salads we thought were overpriced."

  • "A group of us dined at this Lowe's Hotel venue to celebrate a birthday. While the food was just good, it was nothing special and very over-priced. We are not very price-sensitive where food is concerned as long as the value supports it. In this case, it doesn't! Perhaps the high menu prices reflect both the fact that it was high season in Miami Beach and the restaurant is located in an upscale hotel on the beach. One would think that a dining establishment called "Lure Fishbar" would have a vast variety of fish on the menu. The fish selections were two although they did have oysters, shrimp and sushi/sashimi; a buccatini with butter-poached crab, sold out by 6:15pm (suspicious!) We do not plan on returning for a second visit."

  • "Outstanding food, with service to match. Don't miss the crispy rice with tuna. Tops in South Beach for sure."
    Dined on 3/17/2014
  • "We arrived at 8:40 and our reservation was for 8:30 and we're asked to have a drink at the bar while our table was being prepared. At the bar the bartender was not very friendly. When we were seated the service at the table was excellent but there was a problem in the kitchen and the food came out 50 minutes after we had placed our order."

  • "It is a rarity to find a restaurant that has incredible food and service as Lure does. It is a wonderful addition to the Miami restaurant scene. From fish to meat; everything was cooked to perfection. All 4 courses were timed perfectly. We felt that the staff was very attentive and never felt rushed as the restaurant got busier. We loved the experience and will most definitely go back."
    Dined on 3/13/2014
  • "Very expensive. Food was ok. I wouldn't bother to return. The bar area was busy so you could have people standing right next to your table."
    Dined on 3/12/2014
  • "It was a comedy of errors the night we had dinner. It seemed easy when we were staying at the hotel where Lure is located. We were seated on time, our drinks arrived 15 min. after we were seated and we asked the manager what happened to them. He did not apologize and gave us attitude like it was our fault. The server completed neglected us and did not even explain the menu or offer any specials. Once we did order, our appetizers came out randomly, one just as dinner was served. We spoke again to the manager and he once again never apologized and gave us more attitude. This is my first negative reveiw ever on Open Table. I do not like to complain online or in restaurants but the service was unexceptable."

  • "My husband and I from Los Angeles and was in town on business hoping for a great seafood/sushi meal on a Friday night during Lent. We were very disappointed with the food. It was okay but not worth the price. The cuts of fish for sushi were too small for the rice. The spicy tuna rice cakes that everybody raves about is really just average. Again, too little spicy tuna for the crispy rice. The ambiance was nice and the server tried to be knowledge, but overall, this place was not impressive and way overpriced for what you got."

  • "Fantastic fish and seafood bar and restaurant. One of the best in Miami!"
    Dined on 3/5/2014
  • "I was very impressed with the decor - Art Deco Queen Mary theme. Oysters were great, they come either plain or dressed. Lobster spring rolls were tasty but could have used a different dipping sauce...something more asian inspired. Waitstaff was wonderful and we felt we were well looked after. Tiny little cheese biscuts were tasty. Whole herb-stuffed grilled fish which was fabulous. Creamy pasta with crab was delicious and slightly spicy. Favorite dessert was three flavors of very intense sorbets (coconut, mango and passion fruit), molded into a round shape and served with fresh fruit. In summary, we were seated immediately at our reservation time, we had attentive service and great food in a beautiful restaurant. Expensive."

  • "Right now it's one of my very favorites. Staff is wonderful, food delicious, not cramped fables(lots of space) and comfortable. Just love this spot!"

  • "Food and atmosphere were what you expect from one of South Beach's more notable seafood destinations. Service was extremely slow and actually forced us to change our plans for the rest of our evening or that could have been the entire glass of water that ended up in my lap while the table was being cleared. In a city filled with great nightlife , spending over 2 1/2 hours at dinner made us all a little rambunctious and hungry!!!"
    Dined on 2/21/2014
  • "The food and service was great but menu was different from NY's restaurant. Even same dish was different. NY has a cool air while Miami's restaurant seems to be more traditional."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "Sunday night. Guess they were super busy saturday night. Half the fish menu was not available, sold out from prior night. ( they probably do not get fish delivery on sunday). Sat outside, that was nice. Inside is small, but ambiance looked good. Service was so slow, they need to get that figured out. Having said all this, the food we did eat was delicious. Everyone liked the food a lot. I would give it another try, but they have to figure out food inventory and service quickly. Not good to sit down and have the waiter come over to say we are out of these five fish and have these three available."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "Found the food to be good. Enjoyed the tempura shrimp. Surf & turf was a mixed bag. Small chewy lobster tail and an okay piece of beef tenderloin. Ambience was strange; main dining room was attractive but the annex was more cafeteria like. Good but better experiences out there.n"

  • "When in NYC we go to Lure almost daily. Very disappointed with quality of food at Miami Beach location. Service was ok. Bland soup, mediocre sushi, burnt lure burger, undercooked fries....automatic 20% tip added to bill that included tip on alcohol??!! Will not return to this location...can get better food and value in Miami for this price...what a let down!"

  • "I picked Lure based on the location and menu for a romantic dinner. While the bar area and bar attendants were great, warm, polite, etc., the service we received at the table was sub par. The table attendant did not introduce himself, nor did he ask whether we had been to Lure before, or if we had any questions. He immediately went into the menu. While I understand that small plates are not full portions, small plates are still expected to be made for sharing. Neither me or my girlfriend are likely to overeat or to order more than we can stomach, but we ordered 5 dishes between the two of us and left hungry. The only reason we did not order more is because the bill was already exceeding $200. Also, the scallop ceviche is not ceviche."

  • "I'll start by stating, I have no problem spending money on going out to dinner. especially when I'm out with a women/date. It was obnoxious!! $37 for one stone crab claw they called colossal. More like med. Joe's Stone crab isn't that rude!!! Dinner for two with one med priced bottle of Pinot Grigio $450. Oh did I mention the 2 rounds of drinks at the bar before dinner $100. Better deal for sushi is next door at Nobu!!!"

  • "Food was excellent but service was very poor for such an expensive restaurant."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "Service was confused. Multiple order-takers; two rounds of amuse-bouche (not very good, either); when asked, no one who came to our table actually claimed to be our waiter,; apparently floor captains of some sort ended up helping us out multiple times. Would have had dessert but couldn't stand the confusion and any more waiting. And of course mandatory 18% service charge added - not worth arguing as that would have kept us there longer. Food and ambiance and value not good enough to overcome lousy service. Way below the competition on Collins Avenue."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "We had a terrible experience here. It took over an hour to be seated to find out the hostess had no intention of seating us since she saw us sitting at the bar and assumed we didn't want to sit at a table. We also were recommended a few dishes by the staff which were later communicated to us that they were out of it. It's a new restaurant so we understand that kinks need to be worked out but you don't have to teach people how to treat customers in a restaurant, this should come naturally which the staff at lure doesn't have. After everything they didn't even pick up a drink on the house or send out a dessert. Classless in my opinion."

  • "We had a group of friends (including teenagers and one young child) in town for the weekend and were looking for a nice spot for valentines day dinner. We found Lure through open table and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. The good was amazing, service was great and the music selection was the best in any restaurant we've ever been to! Great Miami choice!"

  • "This restaurant is located in the former St. Moritz Hotel (now part of Loews), adjacent to the Loews South Beach Hotel property. The menu selection of fresh seafood was amazing and varied - everything from sushi to ray bar items to creatively prepared fish entrees. They also have a full bar and extensive wine list. Service was also excellent."
