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.

Our second time going to Lure my first being my birthday 2yrs ago. Over time they are still putting out great service, food and maintaining an excellent space. The food introduces you to new experiences with basic fare that at times reminds me of my travels across the globe. Tonight I was impressed by our Server, Tacita who was well versed with the items on the menu to include how they were prepared. In addition she was able to talk about the upcoming local 5k run and solicitation of a possible donation to support the company's Hunger Walk Run 2019 which in turn raises money for the Atlanta community Food Bank. She went one step further based on our inquires to passionately and briefly talk about the sustainability efforts of the company overall. I became a member of Fifth Group (FG) Rewards last night. Well done

We went to Lure for the first time because Ecco was closed for a private event. I couldn’t be happier with our decision to dine at Lure. Everything was spectacular from the amazing service (Amy, I believe), food, and ambiance. I love any bar that makes craft non alcoholic beverages and I had the pear/ginger/honey shrub which was excellent. We had the tuna ceviche, Salmon Belly Crudo, scallop entree, and brussel sprouts as a side. Phenomenal. I can’t wait to go back. Thanks for an excellent meal and for keeping our time constraint into consideration. Highly recommend!

I’m a tough grader. This place was good but not excellent. The crab dip was a little thin and watery. It didn’t sit on the Cristini well. The flavor was fine. The shrimp appetizer with spices was very good I recommend it. The reason I’m a little down on the place is that the bass Was really very salty. The waitress would’ve gladly replace that if I had said something. The salads are surprisingly good. The menu has a fairly good selection but for a Seafood place I’d expect a couple of more choices. The service was excellent, the waitress was friendly and made me feel that she was here to make the night go well. They have an interesting wine list, with some good middle price choices. Some original bottles were worth a second look. For the middle of Atlanta this was a very relaxing ambience

This WAS one of my ATL faves until my last previous experience with the wife, left us wondering if they had lost their MoJo. (Too much salt in everything; including a garden salad). But I rolled the dice, choosing to dine here with a fellow member of my Army Reserve unit for a Sat. dinner. The experience restored my faith in the place. We split a dozen P.I.E. oysters on the half shell, followed by a salad each, and finishing with grilled swordfish (me), & BBQ’ed shrimp (my friend). What a pleasant surprise to have been able to enjoy it all. It didn’t hurt that the bar tender’s selections for my 3 by-the-glass wines were ‘spot-on’ pairing well as the meal progressed. 👍👍

I was disappointed. The waiter had too many tables all eating on the same schedule. He was inattentive. My fish was way overcooked. Actually came slightly burnt. Carrots were fine. I have recommended this restaurant too many people and I hope that the next time I go back it will be far better than it was this time

Loved the outdoor patio. The Lobster Tamale was not very good. The Tamale was kind of dense and the lobster was overcooked and tough. The shrimp dish was nice and the drinks were good.

We started at the bar. We were early for our reservation because we walked over from a play at the alliance theater.
The bartender helped us find some great beer & wine to drink.
We were seated at our reservation time. The waitress was helpful in continuing to find things to eat & drink. We ordered appetizers crab dip & fritto misto. They were both delicious. Waitress did not rush us so we took our Time enjoying each item. Two of us had the crab fried rice which was very delicious. The crispy brussels sprouts were to die for. We were sorry we didn’t have enough room for dessert because they sounded wonderful. They were having a family style dinner that they do once a month with a specialty cocktail involved. We look forward to trying that in the future.

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.

The restaurant's service is exceptional... However, they seem to be a bit proud of their oysters @ $4/ea. Surprise, surprise.... as I can't remember paying over $3/oysters for those bivalve mollusks imported from anywhere along the US/Cnd east coast as far as ME, MA or New Brunswick or even west coast oysters from BC, AK or WA. Someone is making a killing at those prices???

Our entrees this time were good, but not great. This may have been our choices though. My date's trout was cooked with head and tail on and delivered tableside to filet. The fishbones remaining after the tableside filet were actually too small to see. My wife spent the entire meal picking bones out of her mouth after every bite. Next time, we will try another option. The chef should have thrown that one back even though it was cooked perfectly, it was too soon to harvest that particular fish! We rarely can go wrong with any choices here, but will definitely try something else next visit.

All in all our meal was excellent and we will be back --

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.
