About Lure - Atlanta

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.

We had a very enjoyable evening celebrating our anniversary at Lure. Everything was superb, with the exception of too much salt on the grouper; otherwise, five stars would have been given across the board. Wonderful server who started our anniversary off with complimentary champagne! We will definitely continue to enjoy Lure in the future.

Our waiter, Cooper, was fantastic. Very attentive, provided solid opinions on food/drink choices based on our likes. Was friendly and professional. Made the experience that much better. Food was great. We sampled several items. The grilled octopus and oysters on the half shell were amazing!!!

Our group of 6 ladies loved the Sunday brunch! The atmosphere is relaxing and there is a large rusty anchor at entrance and large rusty chains that lend to the funky nautical atmosphere.
Some of the group enjoyed breakfast dishes but also the Clam Chowder, fish sandwich and Butternut Squash Soup. Shrimp and "Grits" were actually cauliflower grits! Crab dip was a delicious starter. Next time we will try the punchbowl Bellini drink and yummy-sounding desserts!

The Dover sole in brown butter sauce was excellent - sautéed perfectly. The compliment of steamed spinach allowed to fill flavor of the fish to come through. I look forward to having it again. The only disappointment was the Vidalia hush puppies - too dry and a shade over-cooked.

Parking was a nightmare due to a movie taping. I wish there was an alert so I would have known in advance. Guests had to walk in the cold. And the ladies were in heels.

Some of our food was quite good, but other items were not. Inconsistency has been the case my past few visits. Overall, our service was good, and I just wish the consistency of the food would be as good as it used to be.

Had a beautiful meal here for a Bday celebration. Everything exceeded my expectations. My only complaint was the noise level was too high for good conversation. Go in knowing that and just enjoy the energy and the tasty creative food!

 (Tallahassee)·Dined on February 4, 2018

This was my 3rd time dining here. All the food was great except I ordered the lobster tails and one was not cooked through.
Also, sitting on the patio under the heaters was a little uncomfortable. We were either blazing or freezing cold—you need heaters out there that can regulate the temp.

I will give this restaurant another chance though since my 1st 2 experiences were great!

We were celebrating a birthday. Food was excellent.Calamari was exceptional. We all enjoyed our fish dishes and the salad was also very tasty. Server was very pleasant and brought us a complimentary toast and dessert for the birthday, which was a nice surpise. We sat on the patio and were at times a little cold despite the lamps. Think when you make a reservation well in advance in winter they should tell you if they plan to put you on the patio or at least give you a choice.

I was very disappointed with Lure. We had seen an episode of ATL Eats and immediately made reservations for dinner. Not only was the smoking seafood appetizer no long on the menu (as was seen on ATL Eats) but the menu selections as very limited. Lure was pushing their “lobster week” menu. Having grown up on the Gulf, I was really looking forward to a fresh fish dish...nope, nada. Complete disappointment! I thought the prices were high for the amount of food plated.
With other great seafood options in Atlanta, (Goin Coastal, Mcormicj & Shmicks, Ray’s) I won’t be back.
