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.

Quality of waitstaff varies quite a bit . First time we went the waitress was wonderful. Second time the waiter was preoccupied flirting with another couple at the next table. Fortunately the other wait staff brought out the food to "help out". Also, the food was so good that we over looked the waiter's lack of attention.

We started with Frito Misto, which was a filling and delicious appetizer. Our server Roman was phenomenal, He recommended a mixed drink that was fantastic. His recommendations on food choices were spot on and accurate. I had the scallops. Since I'm pescatarian, the kitchen omitted the pork bellyand adapted the dish for me. My husband got the steelhead trout, which was delicious, but he wished he had gotten the scallops. They were so incredibly delicious and perfectly prepared. I especially appreciated that they were well cleaned and I didn't have to chew on sand. I definitely recommend Lure and will go back!

Service was awesome. Food was amazing. We had several apps including oysters, grilled octopus lettuce wraps and carpaccio with fried oysters and crab dip. All outstanding. My swordfish was out of this world with an Asian flair. So flavorful!!! Would def recommend this restaurant.

We were in Atlanta for a symphony and choose The Lure because of its location in relation to your hotel and the concert hall. Everything was very good and we enjoyed our meal.

Told our waiter that we were going to the Symphony so we needed to be served timely. We had reservations for 6:15, arrived early and the Symphony was to begin at 8. Desert wasn't brought to the table until 7:39, we had to leave without eating it and the bill had already been paid... so paid for something I didn't have a chance to eat...

Being from the south I expect tarter sauce with my catfish. None available. No butter for hush puppies.

Love this place in my neighborhood. This visit was better than ever. From the thoughtfully crafted and balanced cocktails to the fried crab claw platter appetizer to the amazing new setup for the seared scallops. Bravo!

Food was good but service was somewhat slow. Not a very busy night and we found ourselves waiting an incredibly long time between asking/ordering and receiving what was requested the whole night.

Parking is extremely difficult. Came on a Sunday night and no valet and lots near there wanted 15-20 bucks. On street parking was non-existent (maybe 10 spaces for 3 restaurants). Food was excellent as was service though! Great lobster roll!

Felt a bit rushed throughout our meal. Waiter picked up our bill while we were still finishing our drinks. Gumbo was great. Shrimp cocktail very bland and broiled oysters were consumed with butter. Not great.

Wonderful selection of seafood that has options for every taste and palate. It was hard to choose, so our plates involved a lot of sharing... Great wine menu as well!

Traditional dinner with dear friends after viewing Holiday Lights. Staff kindly seated us even though we were later than our scheduled reservation. We had a relatively quiet table in the back which was appreciated. Server was very good, friendly, knowledgeable and efficient. Food was fresh and well-prepared. A very satisfying evening!

My partner and I had a wonderful date night at Lure, prior to seeing a show at Symphony Hall down the street. The food was absolutely delicious: we had fresh oysters, the octopus & pork lettuce wraps (which could have been a meal by itself), and the catfish and swordfish mains were all highlights. I also want to bring special attention to the cocktail menu, and the drink I ordered (something with mezcal & mango juice) was one of the best cocktails I've had in a while. If we weren't running late for the show, I wish we had time to get dessert. Will definitely be going back!

Scallops were fantastic and the salsa and pork belly blended very nicely. Husband had the halibut and was super pleased. The only dish we didn't care for were the hush puppies.
