5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2015 NEW

Pros: Great food....i) we ate family style...had crusted tuna, lobster ravioli, prawns, and sushi....all very well presented and very fresh; ii) very competent and warm waitress; iii) lot of energy to the restaurant..obviously a hot spot; and iv) not unreasonably expensive by NYC standards. Only cons: VERY loud...so it was very hard to converse at the table.

I went to Lure Fishbar to celebrate my birthday with my boyfriend last week. Our waitress and the rest of the staff were all amazing except for the receptionist. I called twice to see if we could get a booth or if they could pick a table in the corner in a quit area and when they got there they... More

To be in the heart of Soho it´s a kind of a miracle to have a semi cool sushi joint with oysters and a raw bar. I felt in the love boat. The place is so boring that writing this review makes me want to sleep. But there are no many options in those few blocks

Slow service. Scrambled eggs with salmon were overdone and very dry. Toast was processed bread. Oysters were good. Much better places in the same area then this one, such as Mercer Kitchen.

This is a nice solid date choice. Always busy though, especially in the weekends so make your reservations accordingly. I never was disappointed with any of the dishes here nor incredibly impressed. It's very safe. The variety is quite impressive from juicy steaks to traditional seafood like crabs and lobsters to raw bar to sushi which is actually not too... More

We were a party of six for a Sunday dine, with a reservation. When we arrived the restaurant had lots of vacant space, but wasn't really willing to relocate us away from the door. It was a really really cold night! They then offered us a table in the bar area, which we took. While it might not have been... More

From beginning to end, every dish we had (4 of us) was way above par. Highly recommended for any foodie!

I had the business card of Lure from the Burgers & Barrel (which I really enjoyed and recommend!), and I happened to accidentally pass by around 8pm after a long day: obviously, after the good experience at B&B, my Friend and I decided to try it. Unfortunately without a reservation (on a Friday night!) the only way to get a... More

This is a lively, noisy, but very well-run seafood restaurant in the heart of SOHO. The food was excellent - fresh and well prepared, with a big selection of both sushi and cooked dishes. The staff was friendly, the service efficient, the waitress attentive and very nice. We were there with a family of seven so the price tag was... More

I am used to Boston prices, so everything in NYC seems expensive to me (and someone else graciously paid for my dinner!) The food was truly excellent. We had a crab cake appetizer and the crispy calamari - which was amazing. For an entree, I had the burger "Bash" style, which lived up to the high expectations that had been... More
