You can't walk into this joint and not be wowed by this underground European wine cellar-esq, bar/dining area, 'decked with artisan wood work. It's simply gorgeous, with a unique rustic ambiance and really cool vibe. Me and my friend were actually very impressed with the food, though it's been a year since the last posting, so they've obviously made some drastic improvements. It was fresh and filling and paired perfectly with all the extremely reasonably priced liquor we were there to consume. (and how we did) They have $5 daily cocktail specials (we were there on mojito night), and $4 sangria that was seriously the best sangria I've ever had. If you're ever around the upper west corner of central park, I'd definitely recommend, if not insist, you check out this place, even if only for a drink or two. It's worth it just to see it. The eggplant is amazing.

Went there on a Groupon deal but not happy with the experieince. Artichoke appetizer good but they didn't serve with a bread basket--we had to pay extra for five small pieces of not very good plain bread! The whole fish offering had been moved from entrees to other dishes on the menu so not eligible on the Groupon deal, yet it was on the online menu. (We went intending to order it.) Main dishes were not very good--shrimp in ketchup-like unapplealing sauce and steak that was tough. Although Groupon says you get a glass of wine up to $9 value, you only coould have house wine, which is less than $9.

amazing place, amazing atmosphere, but most of all amazing food! I don't know if the chef is single or not, but if he is I would die to have him make me this incredible food everyday.

Very welcoming staff; creative menu; and terrific atmosphere (downstairs stone walls, bar, and doors that open to a still-to-be completed patio, make this a solid addition to a neighborhood that is expanding in good restaurants. Definitely worth a visit.

Although Lura is a little hidden with it's small street frontage squeezed between bodega's and convenience stores, it is an immediately welcoming place. Lots of wood and warm stone decor, and great staff. So the bonus was very tasty food offerings and a well stocked bar. All this and prices that allow a generous tip. We hope to be back.
