Great meal and good service. Large room, feels formal, not too inviting. Lure in NYC is cozier and has a more inviting atmosphere. Our server was very helpful and friendly. We had a seafood plate to share and grilled octopus. Seafood was terrific, grilled octopus too spicy, spice overwhelmed the octopus. We then had grilled scallops and the lobster roll. Both of these dishes were excellent. Expensive meal but generally worth it.
Absolute disaster. Food took over an hour to arrive to table, with no communication from server or the GM Sam. We ordered sushi (45 minutes later????) and I had to reach out to kitchen to see status. GM Sam said “we could talk about it later”, and laughed when I asked what could be done to fix it. Made me feel extremely uncomfortable. Food was decent, nothing special.
The food and atmosphere were excellent by the entire evening was ruined when we were charged full price for Happy Hour Cocktails on the basis that we didn’t procure at the bar. There were no seats available at the bar and nobody that this would be the case. The staff flatly and forthrightly refused to entertain the position. Not what one expects from a hotel restaurant of this calibre!
We ate here a couple years ago the last time we were in Sobe, and decided to come back. The food was good, particularly the whole fish, grilled king crab and stone crab. However, $30 for a single stone crab claw is bordering on the absurd. The key lime pie was awesome, but the molten-chocolate cake wasn’t very molten. Service was very professional, but our waiter could have been a little more personable.
If you want a special place to eat and don’t mind dropping a bill per person, Lure is a good choice.
Bad food and atmosphere
Gourmet prices, but not gourmet flavor in all dishes. I normally enjoy branzino very much, but this presentation was rather flavorless and the fennel was under-cooked and tough. Overall disappointing, although it's was lovely to sit on the patio in the evening in December.
We come here every year - food is always good - sometimes a bit rushed - like this time even though it was unusually empty in high season. If we had not asked not to serve
the maincourse immediately after the starter we would have been in an out in 45 minutes 400 dollars later - make sure you tell them you don’t want the fast food service! Great ambience and good (if not great) food and patchy but good service. A must in South Beach.
Pricey but delicious
The dinner was great, we had all types of fish which were fresh and prepared nicely.
Thecocktsils were delicious, a bit pricey though overall.
We have dined here before.
