Wait staff, including bus staff, seemed barely able to supress its contempt and disinterest for the patrons dining here on a recent Thursday evening. They are apparently programmed with all the courteous talk (how is everything, did you like your meal, etc.) but fail on having any actual interest in the responses. We were warmly welcomed however and the food was very good and nicely presented. Cabernet by the glass a bit on the steep side and not very generous in amount. Coat check person friendly. Wouldn't return even with an expense account.

We sat at the "fishbar" which was a nice little nook of our own and watched them open countless oysters. I had a dozen oysters and they were far from fresh. They weren't rotten by any means, but they were very fishy and left a bad taste in your mouth. I just think that a seafood place, such as this, that advertises itself as a seafood bar should serve fresh, quality seafood. And they did not.

Food was refreshing, but still overpriced. Service was disappointing. Had to waive down staff to get our waiter's attention. Decor was nice.

The sauteed halibut was a touch dried out - somehow - and the sauce a little heavy. The decor is far from neutral and doesn't make for the most comfortable of eating environments. I would have been happier at $6-7 less per entree.

Three of us ordered the surf and turf medium rare and it came out medium well. It was tough and chewy. The "surf" part of the meal was described as lobster and scallops, but it came out with three tiny chunks of lobster that were smothered in this creme sauce so you couldn't even taste the lobster. The scallops saved the meal and were cooked well. The pecan pie was uninspiring and barely tasted like anything....I guess it was nutty but not as decadent as they made it sound. Two other people got the 2lb lobster and said it was ok. Service was great and attentive.

Nice to have a new place in NYC as an alternative to Nobu (which seems impossible to get into these days). The fact that Lure is on my block makes the decision all the more easy. Favorites at Lure are: 1. Fried Calamari (addictive), 2. Yellowtail sashimi with jalapeno and mint, 3. The Lobster/Garlic hand sandwich thingy, 4. Tasmanian sea trout, 5. Red Snapper with yuzu foam (yum). This place has made me a happy camper, considering my favorite (Nobu) is one big pain in the a** to trek to Tribeca for.

We had a seafood tasting, which was a selection of their appetizers, and it was simply out of this world! My wife ordered the dourade and I had the black bass, both of which were prepared to perfection. Great ambience to make the meal even more wonderful. Truly one of the best seafood places I have ever eaten at, highly recommended.
