I finally got a chance to check out Lure, and I was very pleasantly surprised after everyone kept saying Optimist was better (when the several meals there have been mediocre to having to send food back to the kitchen). Definitely soooo much better, will be back!

Fifth Group has great Atlanta restaurants, but Lure is outstanding! We are serious seafood snobs, but Lure wowed us! Very cool, open, trendy atmosphere that leans casual. The smoked seafood appetizer platter was such a fresh twist on classics, especially the scallops. My sauteed sole was perfection. One of Atlanta's most solid but innovative seafood houses has every reason to be an "optimist" about its future outlook and should pull ahead of other recent additions to the creative culinary scene in Atlanta! And the service was reliably excellent like other Fifth Group restaurants.

I am a big fan of the Fifth Group restaurants and was really looking forward to dinner at Lure. Unfortunately, it did not live up to my expectations and to me is the weakest link in this group of restaurants.

We were seated outside which was heated by various space heaters. Had to wear my coat during dinner to stay warm, while other tables complained of being too hot.

We tried several appetizers: the oyster sliders (average), the skate (no flavor whatsoever) and the octopus & pork lettuce wraps. The lettuce wraps were the best of the three, but I think the octopus at Kyma is by far the best in Atlanta. No contest. We thought about ordering an entree to share but figured if the appetizers were average, surely the entrees were as well, so we got the check and headed home.

If you're looking for great seafood in Atlanta go to The Optimist or Kyma. Best in town.

The cuisine here is a little different from the norm which is why we enjoyed it. Our server was very knowledgeable about the food and beverages. Great experience & walking distance to our hotel.

Wife and I dined on a Wednesday evening and despite traffic problems getting there the restaurant held our reservation for 20 minutes and they were busy. The dining room is large, high ceilinged and full of hard surfaces glass and concrete that relfect the noise of large parties. The service was good and the grilled swordfish with spinach and calamari from New England were excellent. The wine list is extensive but limited by the glass. Plenty of beers and cocktail choices.
