Pre/post Theatre
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.

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.

I got extremely sick from the food as soon as leaving the restaurant. My husband had to pull over three times for me to let it out. We completely missed our Botanical Gardens trip. I was told that the cornbread was soured which was what made me sick.

I went to Lure with a party of four on a December Sunday night following a concert. Parking was a challenge because the valet person was not on duty and an adjacent parking lot was full, but we managed. Our reservation was honored and we were seated immediately (I don't take this for granted). We picked a wonderful pinot noir and we all liked the flavor and aftertaste. Two of us, born near Chicago, ordered the steel-head trout and loved it. My wife and I enjoyed the swordfish. We wanted the halibut but Lure was out-of-stock. I was a bit surprised that Lure's menu did not list more entrees and that a seafood dish was already gone for an early dinner. We were told that Sunday fare was sometimes iffy as to availability. Also, the popular upside down apple sundae was not available which was disappointing. My alternative dessert Coconut Snowball (tres leches cake, coconut bavarian crème, pineapple compote) was OK but not worth $8-9 in my opinion. Service was prompt and not swarmy. You pay dearly for an evening on the town nowadays in Atlanta. Cost will wine, appetizer, entrée, dessert, tax and tip runs about $60-75 a person.

Terry, our server, was fabulous, and his recommendation of the scallops and pancakes was SPOT ON!! I would NEVER have ordered that! Great atmosphere, creative cocktails. A must visit, even though I initially thought the brunch offerings to be limited. Will definitely return and TRY to order something different!!

Cute restaurant with great atmosphere and service. Yes, I know it is a seafood restaurant, but I had the Wagyu Burger and it is the best burger in town! Highly recommend.

I picked the burger, not a great choice. Kinda a greasy mess with underwhelmingly non-crispy fries. Service was excellent, will go back but choose something else!
