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.

Great location, outdoor and indoor seating. Everyone was friendly and knowledgeable about drinks and food items. Like how you can see what is going on in the kitchen. We tried Octopus lettuce wraps, crab dip, scallops, hangar steak, catfish and BBQ shrimp. Enjoyed the mint chocolate dessert - it was delicious.

I had a reservation but still had to wait. There was no where to sit and wait so you were forced to stand the entire waiting period. I ordered the crab dip and it was basically a tomato dip with a little bit of crab. Then I ordered sparkling water and they brought me out a can. With the price of the food I expect glass bottles of water when it’s not filtered tap. The entrees were decent but less than stellar. I had the flounder it was a bit cold and my date had the Trout. The Brussels sprouts were not cooked well and it just overall wasn’t a great dining experience. First time visitors and probably last time.

Festive dinner with family. We were greeted with a smile even with 3 kids in our party on a weeknight. We were celebrating a birthday and it was a great time. Creative tasty dishes in a festive but intimate space. Will definitely go back!

Celebrated a Birthday dinner here with my wife. The food was somewhat pricey, but the dishes we tasted were very good. The Crab Dip appetizer was especially good. Our waitress was helpful and they even hooked us up with a little slice of dessert on the house for my wife's B-Day. The ambiance was "okay" for us, but others may not have as much of an issue with the bar prominent set-up. Overall, it was a nice experience and I would recommend to others who are into Seafood.

The food was phenomenal! We had raw oysters, really fresh. The octopus appetizer, scrumptious. The scallops and pork belly, heaven! Sadly I don’t remember our waitresses name but she was wonderful! Professional, knowledgeable, down to earth. Will definitely be returning. Thank you Lure for a great anniversary date night.

Wonderful ambiance, octopus lettuce wraps were the best part, although perfectly crafted cocktails were a close second.

Food is excellent. Parking is a bit of a problem. Could use a valet service. There was a very loud table near us celebrating a birthday, therefore, noise level very high.

Very helpful and pleasant with our dinner service due to symphony reservations.

Lure has the best seafood dishes in Atlanta right now. The burger is also outstanding. There are so many delicious choices, and so many ways to eat. If you’d like courses, you can do that. If a group of people want to eat tapas style, there are a lot of small plate selections in generous portions. The drinks are well curated. We especially like to ask for our favorite server, Laura. She makes all her guests feel welcome. The atmosphere is good for date night or a party, you can hear everyone at your table in an intimate setting. A++

We entertained a group tonight. The table for 8 was perfect, in the rear and roomy enough for us to get moving as needed. Our server, Roman, was accommodating and warm from the first hello as we could have hoped for. The food was delicious. Just wonderful in every way.

The Misto Fristo (fried calamari / shrimp / vegetables) barely had any seafood in it! The New England clam chowder was the worst - nothing in it, more like thickened broth. I had ordered a full bowl of it as my meal, after appetizers and a salad. I asked about it when it arrived and got a “yeah that’s how it is” answer, no offer to change it out. I feel like when ordered as a MEAL the waiter should have explained it HAD NO SUBSTANCE in it.

Sad. I won’t return here. Go to Oceanaire for GREAT SEAFOOD in ATL.

Real surprise when I drove up. There is NO longer a Valet service and parking in the area is tricky. It took about 15 minutes to find parking at $20!
The food is excellent. The cocktails should be more generous pours. The service was prompt once we got on the same wavelength.
