Everything about my dining experience was top notch! We liked everything so much the first night that we came back the following night for more. All the seafood dishes were excellent, I loved the fried chicken, and a must try are the hush puppies and calamari. The homemade ice cream was delightful!

Friends looking for a nice meal, we found Lure on the internet. A great find, very pleasant ambiance, noise level a little high. Meghan our server was top, she made us feel like royalty. The food was excellent, the octopus appetizer we can highly recommend.

Not the cheapest restaurant but for nice date or you want to make an impression this is a great choice. Get the Lychee Punchbowl! Great for sharing. Nice atmosphere, attentive staff. I had the Sole and it was cooked perfectly. Some restaurants leave it undercooked but this was just right with a nice crust. Valet parking is close and affordable.

Visited with my wife, daughter and son in law. We found th efood excellent. Ordered appetizer, soup and main course and everyone was very happy. Service was excellent as well, we found this a great place to eat a Saturday brunch in Atlanta Casual dress, parking on the street or adjacent parking lots, easy to get to Lure. Highly recommend

That's it in a nutshell. Nice place, small patio, primarily seafood. Interesting drink menu. Small portions at regular portion prices. Servers were friendly and attentive. Food had good flavor, and interesting presentations. Just not a very good value

Out-of-town friends booked Lure through OpenTable. The valet parking was very inexpensive ($4) and convenient, and we were seated precisely on time (rare for a Friday night). The music was popular rock, the wait staff was animated and helpful, and the food was beautifully prepared. In addition to the terrific "grand seafood" appetizer platter (pictured), the "punch bowl" adult beverage... More

Booked a table here for dinner before a show at the FOX theater. Others had talked about the great cocktails and we had one of the best Cosmopolitans ever, so good I separately tipped the bartender. The menu is not overpowering and the food was wonderful and well presented. Wait service just right and we had a very enjoyable time.... More

Excellent appetizers (notably broiled oysters and pumpkin salad) and drinks. Fried catfish entree was good, but could have been a bit more flavorful. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a delicious seafood option in midtown!

We've been wanting to try this place for a long time and finally did....and so glad we did! The swordfish was amazing, and my wife had the cobia which was also amazing. Try one of their drink bottles. The one with jalapeños had a nice kick but not too much. And I almost forgot the octopus lettuce wrap app...ridiculous!
