Seafood
Perfect For:
  • Good for a Date
  • Fit for Foodies
  • Special Occasion
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.

My boyfriend and I went here for his birthday and had a great time! He was given a free glass of champagne and small dessert for the occasion. Our waiter was knowledgeable, attentive and friendly. The food was wonderful and the patio had a great vibe. I would highly recommend this place!

Great little place in Midtown. LOVE that they have Prosecco on tap along with some great in-house made bottled cocktails. The food was very good along with the service from the moment the host greeted us to the bartender and server. The only thing I did not like was we were packed in like sardines. I felt like I was having dinner with the table next to us. Other than that, it was great!

Lure is my favorite restaurant in Midtown Atlanta. I first visited Lure when I moved to the area four years ago and it has become my "go to" restaurant for a nice evening out ever since - or lunch out for that matter. They offer valet parking. The servers are always courteous. They know the menu, they know the wines/cocktails, they know the oysters and they are happy to relay any and all of that information with a smile. I don't drink alcohol and they don't seem to mind that I won't be bumping up my bill with expensive wine. They also aren't bothered by the fact that I don't want alcohol in or on my food and will accommodate that request if they can or make another menu suggestion if they can't. The food, no matter what I have ordered, is always good. I sometimes will happily graze through the appetizers (If they take the lettuce wraps off the menu, I'm writing a protest letter), or will order oysters (always fresh) and an entree (Sea Bass with Faro or the Whole Trout are favorites). The menu centers mostly on fish - hence the name - but you can get a steak or non-seafood meal if desired. Also, they usually have a vegetarian option. I find the price consistent with the offering. The place is nice but casual - always busy so I do recommend a reservation. I've dined at several really terrific restaurants in Atlanta, but Lure is the one I go to for friends/family coming from out of town or a night out with my local friends because I can always count on a great meal, served with a smile in a comfortable setting.

Food is always good. Ambience is great. We rarely get a date night and we're really able to enjoy our night out. Atmosphere is modern but calm and relaxing environment. We were able to enjoy our meal and talk without having to yell over loud music. Patio is great. Trout pate is a must!!

Service was very good (Hannah was our server) and food was very good. The atmosphere is nice, upbeat, vibrant. Interesting & different cocktail offerings. The only reason I rated the food a 4 was because one of our guests ordered the trout & it arrived undercooked. Server took it back to kitchen & unfortunately by the time it was returned fully cooked, 3 of us were almost done with our dinner.

I've been here before, but didn't enjoy the second trip as much as the first. The waitress (Ashley) couldn't give me the detail I was looking for in the flavor of the dishes. She wasn't very personable either...we tried chatting and joking with her but she seemed very uncomfortable.
I had the Mahi entrée - the presentation didn't pop out at me and the flavors seemed a bit scattered. HOWEVER, the tuna appetizer was FANTASTIC. Favorite item on the menu so far.

This was our first time at this restaurant and we highly recommend. I immediately noticed this punch bowl on the menu that had me at vodka and lychee liquor! The presentation and taste of food was phenomenal. Perfect temperature and seasoning. The best catfish and scallops we have ever had. Their chocolate layer cake was moist and just divine. You won't be disappointed!

The food was outstanding; everyone was complimenting the dishes. My pan-fried Sole was the best fish dish I've eaten in the last 5 years! I can't stop thinking about it. Cheers!

We traveled from Virginia for a sports event and had dinner here while in town. We walked from Hilton Garden Inn Midtown and it was a nice well lit walk. We were a little overwhelmed by the culinary terms on the menu but found that our waitress was great at helping us decide. We started off with calamari and some house special mix drinks which were all great! I had a ribeye and my husband had the catfish. The atmosphere was dim lit and cozy but got loud at times because of the crowd. Overall this was a beautiful restaurant and a great experience for us! So glad we have it a try!
