    Definitely make a reservation prior to going, walk-ins would have waited an hour at least for a table on Saturday night. The staff was not prepared for how busy they were so service was not great until halfway through the dinner when people started leaving. They also ran out of a few dishes (Salmon, edamame) due to the higher than expected influx of guests. Despite that, the staff was helpful, professional and the food quality was top notch. After dinner the bar had a great selection of Scotch and they let us sample a few. Great experience overall.

    I read that Lure was as expensive as Milo's - not quite, but it is expensive. However, I enjoyed the menu better as it had a substantially broader offering. The food quality was outstanding. The service was great. We sat in a corner booth, which had a great view of the restaurant. There are a lot of booths in the restaurant, which make it look like the restaurant of a large hotel - which it is. I suggest the management reconsider the booths - it diminishes the experience.

    I went to lure with my wife for our anniversary, from the moment we arrived we were greeted by friendly and energetic staff. The restaurant has a classy and elegant look, reminiscent of an luxury liner from the golden era of cruise ships, the food was exceptional, well prepared and presented, the raw bar options were awesome and the composed dishes amazing. Must try the scallop and chorizo dish, just decadent. Desserts were sinful (try the pot of gold). Our server Jeff was knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Overall a great experience at a great restaurant.

    It all started with Dennis the Menace our waiter, who provided stellar service from the first minute to the last. The bar took the challenge to make the perfect Moscow Mule which was of course served in a copper mug. The first attempt came with too much crushed ice, but the rest proved to be as promised. First, we had the large shellfish platter, which was awesome. Followed by a bit of sashimi that tasted as if it just came off the boat. Next, was the entree's which satisfied with great delight everyone of us. Lastly, we just had to indulge by sharing deserts. WOW, THE ENTIRE MEAL AND SERVICE WAS IMPECCABLE!

    Food was wonderful, the noise level (although loud) was manageable as they designed the place very thoughtfully. I came in with pretty low expectations since it was inside a hotel and a chain, but as a fellow foodie (snob) really was pleasantly surprised. In addition, our server was fantastic (Dennis) and he made our evening! Highly recommend it to anyone looking for a good, comfortable place to have seafood.

    I had the edamame with garlic and soy and Alaskan Crab legs. My fiance had the raw clams, lobster bisque and the risotto with shrimp. Both were very good. Its not a fancy place - no ambiance but the food and service were good. Some patrons were dressed in shorts and flip flops which i wouldn't wear in the evening for a restaurant. I would definitely come here again.

    We love this place. Took our daughter and her fiance there to celebrate #25 and from start to finish, it was first rate! Surprised though, that they did not do anything special for her for desert. Food and service were otherwise great, but that was a bit of a disappointment.

    We chose Lure out of many many restaurants participating in Miami Spice. They listed that they offered the Miami Spice Dinner menu on Saturday night, so we went ahead and made a reservation to take a couple friends of ours and possible business partners. It turns out after we are seated and looking for the special menu, that the waitress says that the 'typically only do Miami Spice from 6-8pm, sorry....'. Great job at false advertisement Lure.... needless to say I won't be going back. Not only they didn't keep their marketing promise, but the food was whatever. And to top extremely over priced. won't be taking my business there any time soon....

    My wife and I were on vacation and staying at The James hotel next door. The concierge at The James recommended The Lure and we went for dinner on a Friday night. The food was so good that we went back Saturday night. Everyone was so welcoming and pleasant. Our waiter Dennis was so helpful regarding the menu the first night that we requested him the second night. Now, we went during "Miami Spice" which offered a price fixe menu and made the dinners more than reasonable but I would gladly pay the slightly high prices for the quality of food the kitchen prepares. If you are in town, make a point of going.

    This place is always exceptional! One of the best restaurants on South Beach. The seafood is incredibly fresh and the service on point. It's a great spot if you want a great meal with a nice ambience that is not just "trendy". Offering the Miami Spice menu that changes every week in the month of August!

    Excellent! Tried the Miami Spice menu with three matching flutes of red wine. Good attentive service. Delicious and well presented food. Started off with a raw bar plate with super fresh oysters, tasty clams, and the largest shrimps on the market, served on a bed of ice with all the sauces that you don't need if the seafood is good enough. Main course; a shrimp risotto with perfectly cooked shrimps, still juicy and tender, which is rare for most risotto makers. Wrapped up with a fabulous key lie pie. I'm probably biased, since it is my favorite dessert, but it was still in the top 90th percentile. The matching wines were quite good; the first one a young nebbiolo, the second one - a delicious merlot, the third escapes me.

    We dined on a busy Friday night. Our table was immediately available. Barbara was our server along with a team of equally enthusiastic staff. We had a delicious cocktail and a sample of items that was suggested by Barbara. Most delicious and fresh rainbow sushi, spicey ceviche, mouth tickling rice cake and chicken lollipops. Oh, and a round of fresh and cold oysters. We ended with the pot of gold and choc. Cake. A wonderful evening. The restaurant has a busy up beat vibe with a funky sound tack playing. They were forthcoming about the 20%gratuity when they handed us the bill.

I made my reservation 5 mins before I walking in (online). We were immediately seated and immediately served. There were 5 of us altogether. Everyone's food came out on quickly and everyone loved it! I made a post about it on twitter and text multiple people about how awesome the experience is! I cannot wait to come back with friends who come visit from out of town !

    My criteria for a great dining experience is a restaurant where the food is special, the service is freindly and attentive without being stuffy and the vibe is upbeat without being forced. Lure meets all of those things. The buccatini pasta with crab is out of this world and the sushi is uniformly fresh and delicious. I have recommended the restaurant to three different people in the last two weeks all of whom pride themselves in their ability to discern great places to eat---and they all loved Lure. It is a must go to restaurant if you are in Miami. On top of all this is that it is not crazy expensive like some places in South Beach. And Marco the sommelier is a treasure.

    I have eaten at the Lure Fishbar in SoHo several times so I was eager to dine here while in SoBe. The food and service is every bit as good as the one in SoHo. I just miss the more authentic yacht-inspired decor of the SoHo location. The Miami Beach location has an interior that is fine but nothing special. Everything we ate was delicious: the Lure house roll, tuna tacos, shrimp tempura, the fish carpaccio (maybe red snapper), crab cake, crab legs, etc. We even had an amazing Pinot Noir for a great price. The two couples I brought with me loved it and said it was their best meal all week. It is now a new favorite for me in Miami.

    The bar was lively, the Bartender Jennie encouraged me to try something new, which she guaranteed I would love...and I did! I had the Queens Regulator, actually I had a few. Every drink made at that bar had intricate recipes laced with fresh exotic fruits. I started with the Jalapeño & Spicy Yellowtail Roll, which was so delicious. There are so many appetizers to choose from, Shrimp Tempura and the Rice Cakes are an absolute MUST! I had another roll with Soft-Shell Crab and asparagus and that for me was the best. My Captain talked me into dessert (and more Queen Regulators). The Pot of Gold, which is banana pudding with chocolate mousse, was by far one of the best things I’ve ever had. Everything at Lure was on point!

    I understand that Miami Beach is not exactly the right place for foodies, differently from many other places that I enjoyed in the US. However, the quality of the seafood here is really quite poor and unacceptable for the price you pay. We have ordered the plateu royal just for starting but it has just convinced us to stop immediately that experience. Only the oysters were good, while the remainign part of the plate, crab shrimp and lobster simply... to be returned. The wine list is also poor and made of overpriced choices.
