“A definite new favorite !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

I've traveled quite extensively and found this to be one restaurant that really unexpectedly blew me away. I hadn't read any reviews before going and really just stumbled across the place while exploring midtown on foot. The ambience was average for the type of restaurant that it is but the server we had was probably the best EVER...hands down. Not only was she just the right blend of talkative & charming, she really had a sincere passion for the restaurant's menu and was extremely knowledgeable. She didn't seem rehearsed or just out for tips. Actually, she went out of her way to provide excellent service down to every last detail imagineable--from drink pairings to top appetizers to constantly keeping our drinks full..to helping us download an app to hail taxis via cell phone and so much more...
As I see others have also raved, the octopus/pork lettuce wraps are INCREDIBLE! I ordered a second helping for dessert! If the idea of octopus scares you, give this one a try anyway. My girlfriend is not an octopus fan but LOVED this dish too. What an amazing combination: lettuce, sauce, octopus, pork--WOW! Who would've thought?! The other food we had ranged from "just good" to "very good" but the overall experience, we both agreed--was definitely a 5 star !

“A new favorite restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 26, 2014

First time visit to celebrate daughter's 18th. Wonderful meal from start to finish. The mussels were plump and flavorful and the broth was excellent. Best mussels I've had in America! Ipswich clams were a nice reminder of fried clams enjoyed in New England. My wife raved about the trout-- best she'd had since Switzerland. Desserts were innovative and tasty. The after dinner coffee tasted like it was served in Italy. Not a misstep in the menu choices we made.

“Excellent Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 17, 2014

Great restaurant, excellent choice of food which was good but NYC or London prices! It was busy with a good atmosphere but I'm sure they live on business trade.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

Great spot to celebrate New Year's Day. From instant valet service, to an excellent server - intuitive, knowledgeable, efficient - to fabulous food, our first visit was outstanding. The scallop entree and crab dip appetizer were delicious We plan to visit every time we are in Atlanta. The location, so near the Atlanta Symphony concert hall was perfect.

“Delicious food and great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

We went to Lure for NYE dinner and it was in a very convenient location, near bars, clubs, and hotels. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. Fantastic seafood is their speciality. They had a prix fixe menu that night but we ordered off of the regular menu. The desserts that other tables ordered looked delicious but I had one of the best chocolate malts of all time! Good choice for a night out.
