    The ambience was very peaceful! I came for solo date, my waiter was very helpful and tentative while also giving me enough time to myself to enjoy my me! He was very, very knowledgeable of the menu and gave great suggestions and really stayed on top of my needs. The food was amazing, the crab dip was perfection, the oysters were fresh and the New York strip steak with bleu butter and potatoes accompanied with English peas were everything! I was a little afraid to have the bleu butter right on my steak but it is a masterpiece and even though bleu cheese can have a kind of strong taste on its own this mixture was perfect it was buttery creamy it was slightly bold but it paired so perfectly melting into my New York strip steak, do not skip the blue butter on your steak it’s gold!

    Lure - AtlantaResponded 1 day agoHello Raymonds: My name is Rodney Helper. I am the General Manager at Lure. I see from your comments you visited us on June 30, 2022. If I understand the comment, it appears you were not completely satisfied because the service was slow and you were not blown away by the food. If I go out to a restaurant, I expect to enjoy the atmosphere, and at the very least the food accompanied by great service. Whenever I see comments like yours, I am compelled to here more about your dinner and hopefully invite you back in for a better experience. I too would be disappointed if the space was too loud and the food was less than average. I would love to speak to you further to determine what occurred that night. Please call me at your earliest convenience at 4046642094. This is my cell number. If you call and I don't answer, please leave a message and I will surely call you back as soon as possible. Thank you again for sharing about your experience. This gives me an opportunity to be aware, to coach and to try to make it up to you in some way. Have a great day and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

    The Old Bay Poached Shrimp, Lure's Hushpuppies, Carolina Trout and Crispy Buttermilk Chicken were all brought to our table in a timely manner and were delicious. Our server was attentive and great with suggestions. We felt very welcomed and look forward to going back again soon. A perfect summer date night with my husband.

    We were blown away by the service! We got to the restaurant eight minutes before they were open but the bartender ushered us to the bar and gave us some cold water as it was over 90° outside. Everyone on the wait staff was extremely friendly and efficient. The food was delicious I. We ordered Seabass and salmon and both were outstanding This experience was a 10!

    The wait staff was very good, attentive, and took care of us. The restaurant was busy so the kitchen was a little slow but our waiter gave us a heads up so we ordered early. We took a client to dinner here and I would definitely do it again in the future. Thanks!

    We came there for my girlfriend’s birthday and upon entering it was very upbeat and lively. We sat at the bar and waited for about 30 mins for our table to be ready with a reservation because we didn’t want to be sat outside. The bar was fun! Namera (I think that was her name) was great. She was very accommodating and made sure we got the perfect drink for her all the while attending to a full bar. Once we got sat at our table everything went down hill. We sat there for at least ten mins before we were even acknowledged by a server. We flagged down another sever walking by who said, “we are trying to find the sever who is taking care of this table”. This wouldn’t have been so bad if multiple servers didn’t look at us and just keep walking by. Once Hallie came to our table (who made eye contact with us several times before, mind you) acknowledged the birthday and then proceeded to ask us were we ready. Never apologized for the wait. Our salads came before we even got water. On top of that our entrees took close to and hour to arrive. She did address the delay of the entrees. Told us it would be about five min per the chef, and then an additional 10-15 mins went by before we got our food. Our table was not touched one time by a manager. Once the food hit it was very tasty. I got the salmon and she the sea bass. Once I got the check another ten mins went by before another server closed us out. Mind you it wasn’t even busy at that point. If there is a next time, we’ll just sit at the bar. Not a memorable first time or birthday.

    Great overall experience. Went before our show at the Fox. Had grilled oysters two ways and hush puppies for appetizer and both were great! My wife had swordfish and I had sea bass - both very light and good flavors. Fresh vegetables. Strawberry shortcake for dessert. Service was quick and on point. Manager / owner came by to say hi. We will definitely be back.

    Came here for my Mom’s bday with a party of 10 aged 3-71. This restaurant was spectacular, and I had some hard to please people there (ages 3, 5, and 71). The service was phenomenal (thank you Haleigh like “Halle Berry”) and the food was just as wonderful. There was another very large party they were handling as well as regular diners, and they managed everything beautifully. Thank you Lure because I’d never hear the end of it, and best of all, my Mom had such a great time! We’ll DEFINITELY be returning!

    Great place, great experience! I made an online reservation for 8, I later called to add 3 people which at the moment they could not accommodate a party of 11. Later on that night I received a text notification that my reservation has been updated from 8 to 11. Everything was great. Parking wasn’t much of a hassle. Was not my first time at Lure and it won’t be my last either.

    Our server Haley was Extraordinary! She was upbeat, knowledgeable, extremely attentive and personable. Our group enjoyed a diversity of appetizers, oysters Rockefeller, crab dip, hush puppies & tuna tartare., all excellent. Main courses included the shrimp & clam bucatini, steak sea bass, swordfish- all excellent- Rodney was very helpful with the initial reservation and subsequent number changes. I’m not from GA & selected this restaurant for a 21st birthday based on reviews. The venue is comfortable. Highly recommend!

    Tonda was our server and she was excellent - she matched our mood and pace as we were having an early leisurely dinner before a show at the Fox. Food was beautifully presented and taste equally wonderful. Highly recommend the brussel sprouts. The GM came out at the end to check in with us and we appreciated that personal touch as he was friendly and accommodating, offering to hold our leftovers in the refrigeration until after the show. We did not take him up on that but appreciated that considerate touch. I highly recommend this restaurant for an elegant yet casual meal, the outdoor patio was insulating enough to keep out most of the obnoxious Saturday evening Midtown noise. It was a 90 degree evening but the fans and shade kept it comfortable, the host even adjusting the fan to out advantage without being asked. Such a pleasant atmosphere, food and hospitality.
