    I am a regular for half price sushi night. My experiences are almost always superb. The service is always great, Billy is by far my favorite server. The ambience is nice, great for a dinner with friends or a date.

    I was recently at Lure to celebrate a friend's birthday. The Sushi was awesome and our server was great too. We went with the Chef's sampler platter and also ordered lobster nachos and the cajun fish tacos and shared everything. It was delicious and a way to try a little of everything.

    We have heard about Lure for years and finally decided to check it out. The menu is eclectic with a strong lean toward seafood which is fine with me but my wife is more land based in her food choices. We started with Margaritas which were just OK. I also ordered an oyster shooter, which was delicious. Too icky and spicy for my wife. I ordered the Tuna Tartar appetizer and my wife had a salad. The tuna was nice and fresh and presented nicely. I ordered the snapper from the Chef Special list for my entrée and she ordered the twin tails with butter (of course). The snapper was delicious, one of the tails was mushy at the end. The green beans were excellent but the couscous was rather bland. All in all it was a good meal. We will go back.

    We decided to celebrate a birthday by staying local. We searched through web media and found Lure. We were happy we chose this eatery due to its location and small dining. The food and drink list were ample. We saw food being served around us and we knew we were in for a great meal. The crab crusted grouper was superb. Service was impeccable, prices are so reasonable and we will return again and again.

    I have been dining at Lure for years. A few years ago new owners took over I believe...The quality of the entrees have gone down and has been sub-par. The bar is great and sushi menu pretty good, but overall I feel the quality has decreased while the cost has stayed the same. Not sure it's at the top of my list any longer. I live around the corner and Downtown Willoughby has many great options. Consider other places for the cost. Still a great outdoor bar.

    This was my second time at Lure Bistro and we ate outside this time, and inside the first time. I liked it outside as the weather wasn't too hot. The crab legs are the best you will find anywhere and they kept bringing us new batches of piping hot crab legs for as long as we wanted them. They only do this on Thursdays and both times we made the reservations through you. I absolutely love this place and highly recommend it if you are a crab leg lover!

    I had 6 of my immediate family members together for my oldest daughters birthday. The service was top rate as it always has been when I've had dinner at Lure. My daughter said that her meal was probably the best fish she's ever had. Everyone else liked their meal as well and I have a group that will speak their mind regarding restaurant meals. My son-in- law and I had the lobster salad along with some other items and it was excellent. Thanks for a terrific dining experience and helping to make my daughters celebration very enjoyable.

    Dined on 8/5/2014
    our reservations were not reference on their end. Even though our confirmation back was correct and the call from the restaurant in the afternoon was correct. When we arrive, they had the incorrect party count, and outside seating and not our preferred indoor seating, which was not set up for 5. So a quick table set up had to be made and only was given 4 menus and not 5. But the server, Bernadette was exceptional and made us forget all about the set up. We would come back again of course and ask for her!! Thank you.

    Dined on 7/31/2014
    Our first trip to Lure Bistro for the "all you can eat crab legs" and they were everything we had expected. The crab legs were brought out in a steaming platter and just as we were finishing up our last bite, we were asked if we wanted more. So the legs kept coming for as long as we desired. They were cooked just right and most delicious. We could have been seated at a larger table as there just isn't enough room for the plates, bucket and crab platters on the small round tables for two.

    I've been to Lure several times and was so dissapointed on my last visit. We went for a birthday dinner, the restaurant was slow. Our server was prompt but had no clue as to specials or the menu. Menu seemed compacted. I couldn't tell you how the food tasted as at 5:30 the staff was cleaning the floors with an over powering disinfectant, it's all we tasted. Looked the the staff was more interested in socializing with each other than the customers. First time I've ever reviewed any restaurant. But I hope the owners don't allow the gem they have in Lure to go downhill while focusing in the new location. I do not know if I'll be back.

  • Perhaps a Bad Night
    RaeP
    Dined on 7/21/2014
    Went on a Monday night. Seems to have a lot of promise, and a large outside dining area is nice. Perhaps it was a bad night. The $12 starter was ok, but not carefully done. The grouper with crab had a delicious flavor but was almost lukewarm. My husband's Maine scallops were fabulous -- large and cooked perfectly. The place seemed overall to be too lackadaisical -- nice for an LA beach bar, but not enough professionalism or care for the cost of the dinner here. When we walked out many tables had not been cleaned up and staff were socializing elsewhere cheerfully. Seemed like after the party. Yet, we didn't try the sushi and people outside seemed happy, so I'm sure it's an ok place.

    Our party of 6 went for the AYCE Crab special on Thursday. We had a wonderful table outside on the patio waiting for us after we valet parked the car. The drink specials were a great start! We then consumed 53 portions of nicely prepared, steaming hot, crab legs. We really kept our waiter Dillan busy and he was very attentive! Kudos to the kitchen for maintaining the pace with all the tables in the place at full capacity!
