Seafood
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.

Great seafood. I ate here five years ago and remember having a great meal. So when I revisited Atlanta this week I was determined to find the restaurant because I couldn't remember the name. I had the hardest time finding it through various Google searches so I finally gave up and asked a friend. It was just as good as a remember five years ago.

I had been here previously and I enjoyed the experience; however, this time was so forgettable. From the hostess who was not friendly or happy that we decided to dine with them and wanted to sit inside, to the server who kept mishearing what we were ordering for our appetizer. Also, AFTER the payment transaction went through and I get my receipt, she THEN informs me that I have a $20 amount on my frequent diner card. AFTER.
Very disappointing. I'll still visit other 5th Group restaurants but I have no interest in returning to Lure.

Great dinner with my wife. Roman was our waiter and did a great job for us from wine selection to entree suggestions. The baked crab appetizer was very good. My wife had the halibut and really liked it. I had the lobster roll and it was very good. We will be back.

Because of Hurricane Dorian we needed to leave the Charleston/Savannah coast and head for higher ground. Open Table recommended Lure. We had an amazing evening with the knowledgeable and friendly staff and other diners. Oysters and shrimp and scallops-oh my! Cooked to absolute perfection. Delicious, really delicious! A perfect evening that we will remember for a long time! Thank you, Lure for making out first evacuation the best!

While pricey, the food here was excellent. I enjoyed the seafood here and I don't even like seafood! Very well prepared and seasoned. If you're looking for a nice evening out with seafood, this is a very good choice.

They were sold out of the scallops (my favorite) but it forced me to try something different and I enjoyed my meal.

Lure is one of my favorite places to go in Midtown but tonight the service was a bit off. The waitress had too many tables and I felt lost in the shuffle. Once everything was straightened out, the food was at it's usual standard! The fish selection is my favorite and I really enjoyed the new lobster options on the menu. I highly recommend Lure!

Food was terrible. Small portions. Lobster roll had a burned bun and lobster meat was overdressed. Only 4 scallops in a dinner portion. Overpriced.

We celebrated my friend’s birthday at Lure. Great Edison lighting and soul/rock music which provide great ambiance. I utilize a wheelchair and found accessibility was perfect. The host was warm and energetic and helped set the tone for our dining experience. Regrettably I cannot remember our waitstaff’s name but she was attentive, well informed about the menu and provided excellent service. We ordered the smoked seafood as an appetizer. Wow! Delicious! And well proportioned for two of us. We were so full, we split the entree : the sole. Completely wonderful dining experience!

I love Lure! Very good food. This was the first time we went for brunch and we were not disappointed. We got the Hawaiian roll French toast, the burger and the shrimp and grits. Everything was exceptional.

We’ve eaten here before & couldn’t wait to return. We were not as thrilled. The section were were seated in on the path to the bathroom was so loud and such poor acoustics we could not hear each other or our waiter talk to us.
The specialty cocktail did not have much flavor and definitely no taste of alcohol.
We ordered the miso platter and weren’t sure of which items were which. Under seasoned & bland.
The lobster roll had so much mayonnaise on it you couldn’t taste anything but that and the lobster was chewy!
The people in our party that ate hamburgers liked them ok. I did request salt and pepper as they were a bit underseasoned.
I’m not saying we won’t be here again but it may be a while.

Fantastic dinner! Our waitress Barry was outstanding. She was so knowledgeable about every dish, and made excellent suggestions for food and drink pairings. The swordfish was excellent. The smoked fish board is so delicious. The manager Mirja was keeping an eye on everything and was delightful. We always have a wonderful experience at Lure!
