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.

Food and Service were great. No ambiance for a Valentine's day dinner. Could have done something for the ladies and could have had some music in the background

Roman, our server, was fantastic! He made our experience special...
The mahi - mahi was excellent. The highlight of our meal... hope to revisit that experience in the future.

Food just wasn’t that great, especially for the price we paid. Much better options in Midtown.

Happy hour was nice. Food was good. Lobster roll was smaller than a single hot dog so could have been a little bit bigger.

A nice place that we went to brunch before a play at the nearby Alliance Theatre. The space was attractive, the host responsive, and the waiter was particularly friendly and helpful. The food was good but the portion distribution rather off. Way too many over-salted potatoes but only one small under-cooked poached egg. The trout was excellent as was the spinach. They did not have everything on the menu, which was a disappointment. We would certainly go back.

Our server was awesome - she really made the experience great. She was attentive and made excellent recommendations. We had blue point oysters and the shrimp cocktail as starters and both were very fresh and delicious. For entrees we had the lobster roll and the snapper special - both were nicely prepared and very tasty. Overall, a very good experience and excellent value for a seafood restaurant in Midtown!

We had an amazing experience. The Ceviche and Wagyu burger were phenomenal, and the drinks were made to perfection. We can’t wait to go back. Our service was as good as you could ask for. They did not disappoint.

Roman was an amazing waiter and we had a wonderful work dinner. We loved our appetizers: 1. Crab dip 2. Octopus lettuce wraps (our favorite). My dinner of steelhead trout was delicious. We also enjoyed the scallops and lobster roll (I ate a few old bay fries- best fries I’ve had in a while. So glad we saved room for desert: coconut puff 2. Upside down Apple something 3. Chocolate mint cake- all previous reviews and comments about this desert were spot on. We all would go back every day if we could. What a great evening!

The table service was very good. They were attentive and professional while not hanging over your table.

Food selection was marginal and preparation created a very greasy entry. Unfortunately this caused the included items and bread to be soggy. Although one of our party had the flounder which he enjoyed and said was delicious.

Parking was a real challenge with no help from the staff in planning our arrival.

Possibly this was just a bad night.

My wife and I had a fabulous dinner. Our server, Berry, was absolutely perfect. She made a great dinner even more memorable.
We enjoyed great cocktails, oysters, scallops, and homemade ice creams.
I would recommend Lure to anyone!

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.

5 Stars is not enough..... We enjoyed dinner before a concert at Symphony Hall. We were early for our 5:30 Sunday reservation but were seated promptly. From the gracious greeting at the front door to our final farewell, this was an incredibly dining experience. Upon be seated, Erin introduced herself and she was by far, one of the best ever. She informed us it was Happy Hour and offered appetizer and drink selections. A dozen raw oyster and crab dip to start was just the right choice. We then progressed to our entree selections, the Chef Special and Scallops. The Chef Special was fried fish on top of Hoppin' John and it was incredible from the presentation to the taste. Our friends said the scallops were some of the best they had ever had. Erin perfectly paced our meal, we were never rushed and she knew we had to get to the concert. We finished our evening off the the Upside Down Apple Cake & Ice Cream..... do not miss it, it was extra-ordinary. I chose this restaurant based on the reviews and with one visit, it has become an all-time favorite. We will definitely be back!

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...
