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.

Not the same as it used to be. Old Chef left a yr ago and menu doesn’t quite match up anymore. Desserts were good. Had Creole shrimp with a baguette. Very good but something was missing- like grits, rice, beans. All of the entrees are missing something if you ask me.

The octopus wrap was perfect as always, and their scallops turned out to be the very best scallop dish I have ever had.

This was a first time visit something that my wife wanted to try for Mother's Day. The atmosphere was great. The waiter was very attentive and answered all our questions about the food which is important to me because of my food allergies. There weren't many options that I could try. The cost wasn't too bad. Would recommend to others but I'm not sure if we will go back.

My meal turned out to be very disappointing. I found out well after I booked that it was a prix fixe menu for Mother’s Day. I hate doing prix fixe, especially for a high volume day like Mother’s Day, because there’s no way it will be good because the focus is on volume. However, I felt that Lure would be different since I’d never had a bad meal there until now. I’m sad because used to love this place.

People enjoyed their various entrees and appetizers. Cocktail punch bowl was tasty. I had scallops which were delicious but the mango sauce was a bit too sweet. They were a bit pricey too. The one drawback was that valet parking was full and the attendant was rude.

The restaurant was not crowded but the service reflected a busy place. Drink order was incorrect, spirit was substituted without saying anything as well. Server was not informative or engaging. Felt rushed and food, although tasty was overpriced.

Our service was poor, to say the least. Ten minutes before we were asked for a beverage, almost one hour before our main course arrived. But there was good news! While our server was less than attentive, the manager recognized our plight (without any complaint from us), apologizing and taking the main course off the bill. We will try it again, if only because of the sincerity of the manager.

What are the best seafood dinners we’ve ever had even though you been there dozens of times. The new chef knows exactly what to do with a piece of fish and he has a world-class approach.

We were celebrating our 22nd anniversary. Although, we have dined at Lure previously, this time was more intimate. It was just us and everything was absolutely perfect from the time we walked in the door.

Atlanta is full of “corporate quality” restaurants, not “chef quality” restaurants and this is another of the former. Lobster tamale with burned corn that crunched in your mouth made you question the seafood instead of improving the dish. Shrimp bbq with an authentic sauce but flavorless low quality shrimp versus the gulf coast variety easily available. Sole presented as Grouper atop a bed of greens?!? Nothing was bad but nothing really worked either. Dishes by committee from some corporate conference room?

We had a spectacular experience at Lure! Every single thing we had was scrumptious. Our server (I believe her name was Laura?) was top-notch in every way. At her suggestion, we got the brussels sprouts as an appetizer. Holy cow! Absolutely delicious! I loved that there were many healthy seafood dishes here and I cannot wait to return.
