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 was very tasty and beautifully presented. Service was perfect until it was time to pay, which was a bit slow. We’ll be back!

My experience was the worse ever. We should have turned around when we entered the restaurant and the wait staff was sweating and there were available tables on a friday at 7PM and all of the other restaurants on the same street had 1 hour waiting times. We thought the menu was very limited and what was on menu was not appealing to us. I went to this restaurant about 1 1/2 years ago and the experience was totally different. I was impressed but a lot had changed (for the worse) since a 1 1/2 years ago. Our waitress made a recommendation even though I told her that I did not like fruit (papaya and mango) with my seafood. She somehow convinced me that it was really good. I would never ever ever go back nor would I recommend my worst enemy!

This restaurant was amazing for a number of reasons. First and foremost, their food and service were top-notch, and the server was incredibly prepared to answer whatever meticulous questions I had.

Additionally, my fiance had a panic attack over dinner and passed out, and the manager of the restaurant and all the servers were quick to come to our aid, which I cannot appreciate enough. We will absolutely be coming back.

Lure is a good, but not outstanding restaurant - we had great service, the décor is fun and it is a convenient choice for a before the event-type meal in mid-town. I do not see it as a destination restaurant for just a dinner out, however. While the food is good, it is a seafood restaurant where the main course seafood - trout, swordfish, etc. are not of the highest quality. Creative-plating and interesting preparations do not overcome the mediocre quality of the cut of fish.

The Smoked Trout small plate was excellent. Our Blue Crab omelette, though, was not a favorite. The light green roe topping did have a zing from, I suspect a bit of wasabi, but it was not enough to overcome the overall bland taste.

This was our first time at Lure. We went for our weekly Sunday brunch, and it was wonderful. We have added it to our personal restaurant favorites. The Hawaiian bread French toast was delicious, and my fiancé enjoyed the catfish - and he is not a big fish lover. Our server, Dean, was delightful.

Everything was great...food, service, etc. Wine list is a little pricey based on the price of the food. There were not that many value wines. I don't think it is necessary to spend over $50 or $60 for a bottle of wine. There were not alot of choices of wine by the glass, and the one we wanted was conveniently not available. The waitress recommended something similar, which turned out to be good, but it was $5 more per glass. Otherwise a great experience!

In ATL for a weekend getaway. Lure was a a nice catch for meeting our requirements. Ate there twice. The only minor downsides were the taste of the appetizers were somewhat plain and the whole restaurant could be a bit cleaner.

This restaurant had so many delicious sounding items on the menu, we definitely want to go back and try more. Our appetizers, salad and entree were all yummy; but the dessert was over the top great. Really loved our dinner there; the decor was nice, a skylight provided nice natural light and seating was comfy.

We have been steady customers of Lure for several years. A friend met us there for our first visit and we keep coming back

I’d say the food and the staff are the main pluses. We normally order a fish dish and sometimes the chowder.

The food comes out quickly but no in a rushed manner. They have a wide wine and beer selection.

Prices are appropriate for the food quality.

Noise level is manageable early but gets loud as the evening progresses.

My only complaint is that the valet parking is no longer complementary.

Went for brunch, they were very accommodating of our daughter and service was mostly great. Only thing that was off was the fish and chips sandwich. Generally that dish is made with a white fish of some type. While that is not required it would make sense to warn customers that it was being made with whole bone-in herring as that is a very different experience and taste profile. I took one bite and didn’t continue eating it. Our server didn’t inquire about it, offer to remove it from the bill or offer me the chance to order something else.

Some of the best seafood in Atlanta. We come for the grilled octopus and pork appetizer and stay for the entres which always come with wonderful and surprising sides. My wife's delicius scallops came with the root of sunflowers, a first time experience for us. Juicy, salty, potato-like strchiness. Fried perfectly. I had the salmon, fresh and seasoned perfectly, with a side of peaches and corn bread. Didn't sound good to me at first, but was absolutely delicious.

Our server, Atara (sp?--sorry), was friendly, helpful and all around delightful. She made us feel like we were eating at a friend's home.

A terrific dining experience.

My ladies and I had the most exceptional experience at Lure. We were warmly greeted by Ernest who was able to seat us at the lovely patio space. Upon being seated, Laura promptly introduced herself and guided us through our shared plate experience during this visit. The multiple dishes were complemented by delectable wines and signature cocktails that were suggested by Laura based upon personal experience and what was being ordered. The ambiance was much enjoyed by the airflow that was swept through the area thanks to the fans situated throughout the patio. My ladies and I were able to catch up on years of life without the interruption of other tables that were closely situated. Laura and Ernest continued to check on us until the end. There were even opportunities for personal connection at times throughout. We left feeling most pleased by the attentiveness that I can continue to expect to receive at Lure... even after my last visit to the restaurant being in 2016. The only Miss was that they no longer offered the whole Trout. Bummer. Thank you Ernest, Laura, and Lure staff for being such gracious hosts.
