The décor is based on the inside of a boat. It is cleverly done and match the food concept of Shellfish/Seafood. Great variety there but also salads and some meat options. Loved the Kushii oysters and the Daurade. Great wine list especially that they just added my favorite Alsace producer Maison Trimbach with their Pinot Gris Reserve and their dry... More

Visited this restaurant with my wife for brunch and not disappointed at all. Kicked off with a lethal bloody mary for me and glass of wine for my wife - followed by a selection of sushi and then main courses form a good menu. Thoroughly recommend a visit to this downstairs but characterful restaurant

we were in soho for two weeks and lure was the only restaurant we returned to for dinner, not once but twice - so we had three dinners there in two weeks. fresh, clean-tasting seafood in a variety of preparations and pleasant service makes this a very enjoyable dining experience. some of the dishes we tried were the seafood platter,...

The food is good, especially the raw bar items. The place is so interested in being trendy and hip, however, that it loses track and delivers inconsistent service and less than personal attention to its customers. The noise level is deafening (almost painful) but the bar scene is good and it is a great people-watching experience. Staff is generally friendly... More

Very pleasantly surprised by this restaurant! Really good food and great service. We went there with another couple and had a great time. Amazing sushi selection and fresh seafood. Really good fried rice and mac & cheese.

It has been a cool place for many years ... nice also to try to get a seat at the bar and have a drink and a bite ... good selection of fish and seafood, but also worthwhile to try the burger.. reservations suggested as very often find led up at evenings

Was here with friends and what a terrific meal. Oysters to start were amazing. Lobster bisque was just okay but the seafood gnocchi was just fantastic. Everyone else in our party raved about their mains. Very cool decor. Our server was very good and we had a wonderful evening. Would definitely recommend.

The best thing about Lure is the decor. You're made to feel as if you are in the dining area below deck on a boat. The food was very good but not outstanding enough to warrant the prices they charge. My family of four (2 adult children) ate there and we sampled quite a few different menu items. Two dozen... More

We walked in looking for a table on a Friday night not expecting much luck but after a 10 minute wait by the door we got a table. Admittedly not the best table but when you're with friends and family its the company that counts! Atmosphere was buzzy, service a bit patchy but food was great. Steak tartare to start... More

Staying in SoHo

Neighborhood Profile
Once the artistic hub of New York, SoHo is now one of the premiere shopping destinations in the world. Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway is teeming with big-name stores and people during the day, while Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to explore. Take a detour down the quieter side streets to see the real star of the district – the world’s largest collection of intricate and elegant cast-iron architecture. What were once warehouses and art studios are now meticulously restored loft buildings favored by many of New York’s celebrities, making SoHo one of the trendiest addresses in the city.
