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.

Very disappointing meal. We were going to a show and so were tight on time. Service was so slow, taking over 15 minutes before a waiter came to our table, that we did not order the appetizer we wanted, and still it took an hour to get our main courses. My wife’s trout did not taste fresh and was full of bones since the person who deboned it did not do it properly. The only bright point was my sole which was delicious.

Food was phenomenal! We ordered the shrimp cocktail as an appetizer and the salmon and the scallops for our entrees. The entrees were excellent! Recommend that you get a side as well...unless you go for dessert too 😊

The salmon was very good.
The signature dish pan fried sole was just ok. Needed more brown sauce and/or capers. It was kinda bland on top of the good spinach.
The hush puppies and brussel sprouts were very good.

Wonderful meal and service We had the shrimp app and the crab app They were both great with the crab being a Lure speciality. Dinner included the duck and the sword fish Again both were very good and finished dinner with the chocolate cake and coffee The cake was worth the many calories Overall a very good meal at a restaurant Ihad never heard before going tonight Found it on Open Table It was as good as rated on OT.

They have a great happy hour with dollar oysters and dollar cocktail shrimp. The oysters weren't what I was expecting for $1, they were great. Friendly staff who greeted us with a smile when we walked in and frequently checked on us to make sure we were well taken care of. Will definitely be back.

We have enjoyed our meal every time we have dined at Lure. We were in the dining room on this occasion and the noise level was elevated but not difficult to hold a conversation. The only slip-up was our appetizer/starter did not arrive and they ended up bringing it after the entrees. Regardless I would still recommend Lure without hesitation.

Food was just ok. Cocktail sauce that came with shrimp cocktail was surprisingly bland( needed horseradish). We were told by server that others had made the same remark. Server was very pleasant.
Dessert was very good. Not a bad experience, but would go somewhere else before returning there.

While food, service and ambience were all excellent we were disappointed that the previously complimentary valet parking now costs $10. We typically go before attending performances at Woodruff Art Center where we pay for parking. So we will likely not return to Lure unless they reinstitute complimentary parking policy.

We went for brunch. The experience was not bad or even memorable. The restaurant was not busy yet service was inconsistent. The scallops and griddle cakes were well cooked but boring ( ask for butter, it improves the pancakes) and hanger steak and eggs were hot but salt and pepper took a few minutes and a slice of toast would have been a nice accompaniment. I don’t think brunch is their forte.
