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.

Fantastic dinner! Our waitress Barry was outstanding. She was so knowledgeable about every dish, and made excellent suggestions for food and drink pairings. The swordfish was excellent. The smoked fish board is so delicious. The manager Mirja was keeping an eye on everything and was delightful. We always have a wonderful experience at Lure!

Our server, Barry, was amazing. It was noisy inside so we sat outside. They were out of some items but made it up to us by proving a yummy dessert.

We went to Lure for Lobster Week. Ordered the Lobster Thermador and the portion size for $45 was about 3 teaspoons stuffed into a tiny lobster shell. I did not even taste it as I wanted to wait person to actually see the size. She apologized and offered to get me another entree. However, it was a bit late. She did take the entree cost off the bill which was greatly appreciated. My husband had the Salmon and it was alright - the Tuna Appetizer though was very good and I would recommend it. Overall a disappointing visit to Lure this time.

Awesome atmosphere! We sat outside and even though it was a hot day it was cool from the mist fans. Great food. Lobster Fuad was great as well as the lobster roll.

Lure, like most of the Fifth Group restaurants, is consistently excellent. Our most recent dinner was exceptional. Food and service (Thanks to Amy) were impeccable.

I loved it! Our waiter asked if we were going to the Fox after dinner and when we said yes he assured us we would have plenty of time. I had the halibut over spinach. It was amazing ...the fish literally melted in my mouth and the spinach was seasoned perfectly. I’m going back again soon and have the same thing!

We were seated on the terrace with perfect weather. The staff was exceptional. The creole fish was perfect. It was a birthday so they surprised us with a cupcake with a candle. Special. Can’t wait to go back!

The food and service were outstanding. The ambiance left me asking for more. It felt like the character of the restaurant was lost with no background music maybe... something was missing.

Lure is one of my favorite restaurants. Food is always great a little disappointed about the smoked trout as it's on bread now and now just separate trout with crackers etc... And It was my birthday so I got free dessert.

Great cocktail menu and super innovative seafood menu. The waygu carpaccio & fried oster appetizer sounded so interesting but did not fully deliver, as the oysters were barely warm and the otherwise delicious remoulade sauce overpowered the carpaccio. Fried catfish with summer succotash and Louisiana hot hot hot sauce was excellent and a very large portion. Still love this place.

I have been visiting Lure since 2012. It is still consistent in menu variety, customer service excellent and the blue eyed boy the best cocktail. I love taking friends to Lure for special occasions and celebrate my birthday here every year. One of my favorite seafood spots.

The Hawaiian rolls and smoked trout dip are excellent! Our entrees (scallops and halibut) were very good BUT spicier than the description on the menu indicated that they would be. So maybe ask your server about that whem you are ordering if you are sensitive to spicy food.
