Inspired by classic coastal traditions both American and global, Lure presents Atlanta"s freshest fish and the drinks to match in a converted 1920's bungalow. Anchored in the heart of Midtown on Crescent Avenue, Lure has a sophisticated but casual vibe, fluidly bridging the gap between a weathered seaside fish house and a fine-dining seafood restaurant. Join us dressed up or down for a four-course meal or a beer and platter of raw, chilled and really fresh oysters. It's Atlanta's fish house for the adventurer, the traditionalist, the hedonist, the fish-obsessed.

"Very good lunch menu. We enjoyed all that we ate, although we thought the portion of fish on the swordfish club sandwich was somewhat small. Drinks were very good, as was the baked crab dip. What was disappointing was that there were only 3 oysters on the shared plates menu (how can you share 3 oysters?) for $11."

"It was late and we just wanted a quick bite ... in the Financial District. That pretty much means a bar or a chain restaurant. We have had private arties here before (when it was still owned by the infamous Harry and when they still served good food). We chose Blue Bar at India House which we knew to be a very beautiful space but we also learned that it has good food as well. The short rib sliders were great, the hamburger very good, but the fresh baked pretzels with cheese sauce was, as the waiter warned, addictive. The atmosphere was cozy and warm and our bartender/waiter very professional and helpful. Can't wait to get more of those pretzels and cheese sauce (the mustard was also quite good)!"

Le Rivage offers you a cozy, romantic French country atmosphere where traditional French cuisine is expertly prepared for your pleasure. Fresh flowers embellish each table. Prices are delightfully affordable with incredibly rewarding selections; a true bargain in the heart of the theatre district.

"Dining at Le Rivage (after the theatre) was like taking a step back in time. It is a true French bistro reminiscent of those that proliferated in New York 30 years ago and are now a dying bread. Everything we ate was delicious, and all cooked in house. Lobster bisque, Coq au Vin, Boeuf Bourguignon, Mousse au Chocolat, all well prepared and served by a very attentive waitress who never forgot to pour our wine. Another reason dining at Le Rivage was like taking a step back in time was price, three-course dinner, with bread and butter and coffee, for $29 (and everything was well prepared and fresh!). Even the wine list was remarkably French. We ordered a bottle of Château Larose Trintaudon a Bordeaux from Medoc for $45! Not only is this a good choice for the theatre district, but Le Rivage is a good choice for a very good meal."

"Finding a restaurant opened for dinner in Atlanta on Sunday is a chore. The first time we dined here we were disappointed, this time we enjoyed the food. The trout tartare was good and the duck pot pie very good. Another member of our party had the trout entrée and unfortunately is was not great (or so we were told)."

Felidia is located in a converted Brownstone on 58th Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. Opened in 1981 by Lidia Bastianich, Felidia offers a warm atmosphere where you can still find Lidia greeting guests and fans. <br /><br />Executive Chef Fortunato Nicotra has been with Felidia since 1996 and has brought an innovative touch to traditional ingredients and dishes from all the regions of Italy. <br /><br />Some of the restaurant's signature dishes include pear and fresh pecorino ravioli, veal shank ossobucco and limoncello tiramisu. <br />Felidia also offers a delicious three course price-fixed lunch, Monday - Friday for $29.50 per person, making the restaurant great for business lunches or just a nice afternoon treat. <br /><br />For parties of 8 or more, Felidia offers our group dining menu rather than the a la carte menu. The group dining menu is a five course menu and includes our most popular dishes and seasonal favorites for $95 per person.<br />

"Felidia is by far the best, most imaginative Italian restaurant in New York. Food is always perfect as is the service. Far and away the best pasta dishes anywhere. The guinea hen ravioli may have been the best pasta we've ever had. The duck entrée was also among the best preparations we've eaten. Emil is a wonder and, a though I know wine, I always ask for his assistance, and always order what he selects. This time was no exception. His pairings are perfect. We love Felidia and cannot wait for our next trip to New York so we can dine here again."

"We dine here just about every time we are in New York and have never been disappointed. The best moules-frites in the City. Salads are wonderful, pate is excellent, great wine selections by the glass. There was a special Charcuterie menu with unusual choices such as the duck Charcuterie that I had and that was delicious. All the French brasserie standards are also excellent at Les Halles."

"A little disappointing this time - not many other tables occupied so waiters were annoyingly attentive and not coordinated. As soon as we sat down a waiter asked if we were ready to order, a few minutes later another waiter asked if we were ready, then another. This went on and on. There were 4 of us for dinner, and one of us ordered a bottle of wine and a large bottle of beer for the table. The waiter then asked me if my wife and I wanted anything to drink. When the wine and beer came the waiter gave both to the person who ordered it but none to us. The food was good but not great as we have come to expect. The other couple does not like spice so ordered everything mild, therefore the food lacked the great spice level we have come to expect (this does not take away from the restaurant). All in all the food was good and we will be back for a spicier version of these dishes."

Delmonico's began as the first restaurant in the United States and has had a profound impact on American dining tradition. Our setting is where nearly two centuries of notable poets, affluent socialites, celebrities and presidents have celebrated in the splendor that is Delmonico's. Delmonico's welcomes Executive Chef Bill Oliva our kitchen. While preserving the classic dishes such as Lobster Newburg, Delmonico's Steak and Baked Alaska, Bill brings a level of culinary sophistication to Delmonico's with his addition of creative seafood offerings and other inventive dishes.

"We love Delmonico's and after several meals at Delmonico's Next Door, are fans here as well. This is way more than a pub, it is a very good restaurant that serves pub food. The soups are always delicious and the daily sandwiches fantastic. The only problem is the bread basket is also wonderful and so we eat several rolls, breads, etc., and then a sandwich. Delmonico's Next Door always provide perfect and friendly service. This will be a regular!"

"We loved everything about Balade! We went for a family dinner on Christmas Eve so we were not expecting much, but to our surprise dinner was wonderful. We shared numerous appetizers, including "pizza" for our granddaughter, was well as several more traditional mezza - all fantastic. We also shared several entrees, and although I can't recall which ones, I can recall they were all delicious. Add to that mix some great Lebanese wine and fantastic service and we were happy campers. Definitely will be back."
