    We were so excited to eat at Lure on the recommendation from our concierge at FontaineBleau who said it was the best/freshest seafood in Miami. The chairs were super comfortable and the ambiance was nice. When we had finally made our dinner selections we called the waiter over. At the time we started ordering, he told us there was no lobster! Seemed like something he should have told us when we sat down or perhaps even when we made the reservation. We came for lobster specifically and all had chosen some sort of lobster dish, so we decided to leave. He apologized and said he would go get his manager, but nobody ever came over to say anything. We paid our $80 bill for diet coke and appetizers and went to eat elsewhere. Disappointing.

    I have been twice in two weeks, the first time on a Thursday and the second, a Saturday. Both times we had outstanding service. Both times the food [tuna tacos, snapper ceviche, whole crab] was delicious and nicely prepared. The first time the experience was perfect as Lure was full but not loud. The second time the music was a bit loud and the folks at the bar were so loud you could hardly carry on a conversation during dinner. I would probably avoid Lure on weekends unless you don't mind the loud scene. Only other reaction is to the price of one crab--$75. A bit steep, even for South Beach, but the crab was very good.

    The food was delicious, the service was exemplary and the atmosphere was fun and relaxed. As well, the oyster bar was amazing. Some people commented on the noise however I did not find it to be an issue. It was loud enogh to chat out loud and not worry about disturbing other tables but not so loud you couldn't hear your dinner companions. We had a great night!

    There is not one thing I can complain about when it comes to Lure. The food is amazing and incredibly fresh, the ambiance is good for both "girls night" as well as date night and the staff is the icing on the cake. The crispy rice is like no other I've tried and all the raw dishes are like butter! Definitely word of mouth restaurant and I can't keep mine closed about Lure! A must try!

    This restaurants specialty was seafood but the majority of the menu consisted of oysters and sushi of which we are not great fans. My husband ordered the grilled Daurade and it was very good. My shrimp tempura was a surprise since it arrived chopped in a small plate. The spinach was greasy.

    The fish was great but beware it is "extremely" over priced. This is coming from a NYC native who dines high end three nights per week in manhattan. As example the Lobster was $78 which they don't mention when describing it. One tiny piece of sushi $8-$10. Also not so much of an experience in terms of the restaurant so you are really just there for the fish not atmosphere.

    Not sure what to expect going here. We thought we would actually be at the Lowe's but we were next door to it. The food is excellent. The ambiance and decor are odd. You can't tell if the restaurant is trying to be casual (based on the music and the plaid decor) or fancy (South Beach and prices). The service is also good. Definitely a wide range of seafood and everything was very fresh. But the ambiance was kind of blah for South Beach (and it was freezing in the restaurant).

    This was my second visit and I was dissapointed. I should have stayed with the first impresion I got from the first time I dined here. (1) I had the snapper "veracruz style" it was flavorless, it had little sauce and the rice wasn't jazmin as the menu stated. (2) My boyfriend had the scallops; the mashed potatoes were cold and the whole dish was flavorless. (3) The service was awful, our server was all over; he was great but absent. (4) The messed up our friend's drink order (twice!!).

    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 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.
