  • "We went here with a group of about 10 of us for my Birthday and the service was FANTASTIC - she was awesome, amazing and really made us all feel important! The food was amazing as well - we enjoyed the Chefs Tasting Plate that feature 4 different maki rolls. I know that the others in our party enjoyed their meals as well - the Grouper stuffed with Crab seemed to be a big hit too. I definitely plan on returning! Thanks LURE!"

  • "I really usually love going to this restaurant as the patio is lovely in the summer and one can usually enjoy a quiet summer evening in enjoyable casual conversation. UNLESS there's live music! If you enjoy hearing yourself and others you are with, avoid this restaurant when there is live music. They don't know how to keep the sound at a comfortable level. Bummed!"

  • "We love their sushi and appetizers. Fun to go at happy hour and take advantage of their specials. This particular night it rained and the outdoor tables were un-useable. They never did come to seat us but we found seats at the outdoor bar (covered) and made the best of it."

  • "This is a great place to go out with friends for dinner, a romantic one on one atmosphere, and even a family place! I wouldn't recommend bringing small children though, it is a very classy place! The food is AMAZING, and the service is spectacular! Love every Tuesday night is half off sushi, and the chef always E-mails the weekend specials as well! I love Lure!!!"

  • "Food good, service iffy, very loud. Very busy waitress did try, but forgot we wanted my salad and shrimp cocktail served with my husbands meal of scallops. Also was move from nice table with view of window and comfortable seats to a dark corner, hard chairs and no view. Restaurant was very noisy and it was difficult to carry on a conversation. We will probable return as this is the best restaurant for fresh seafood in the area. We do appreciate the fact that the manager offered our appetizers at no cost to us."

  • "I was there on 6:30 PM. They told me half price on sushi, but there is no spot until 8:15pm. So I wen back home, waited until 7 and took a look at their online booking system, availble since 7:45pm. I reserved one spot and went back. Thought it will be half price on sushi, however, later on I found out that it was only a few items gave you the discount. The sushi I had was not good. $30. It will worth the half price discount though. think twice before you go."

  • "Thr place was hopping! We ordered 5 appetizers. ..was too much food. Our server told us the portions were small. .. not so at all! Three would have been fine. They were all delicious. Great patio. A little noisy but fun. Overall it was a wonderful evening."

  • "Very crowded entry way. Did not know you have to "check in" outside on the curb by sidewalk. Sign was covered up by people standing in front of outside hostess stand. Too confusing/weather very windy is an element for checking in. Dumb set-up. Way too noisy inside, acoustics are terrible, can't hear conversations. You have to scream to be heard. Food portions were quite small compared to a prior visit. Disappointing in portion size. 5 people in party and 1 person did not get table setting. "

  • "A first for us. We had heard so much about your restaurant and ended up being somewhat disappointed. Service was horrible, and we were the only ones in the dining room at that time. (5 pm on a Saturday, the patio was not crowded) We had to ask the waiter to clear our table of beer bottles and our appetizer plates. My husband ordered sushi along with our guests, and he got his almost 15 minutes after they did. Food was just okay. We had the sushi and tuna salad. "

  • "We tried to book a private party. But being it was tues they weren't able to accommodate that, however I booked our reservation online and the hostesses and our server made us feel so special. It was a surprise for our friend and they made it memorable! Tge food was great, wine was awesome but more than anything the staff was amazing !! We had a party of 14 and everything was great! We will be back soon!! Thank you so much"

  • "I am vegan and I appreciate the rare restaurant that has vegan options on the menu. Drinks were great and service was outstanding. Food was very good and priced fairly. I would recommend highly for seafood and sushi or just drinks with friends. "

  • "As always the food is great and so is the overall vibe. To our dismay our waitress was a huge disappointment. Never seen her before so assume she is new to the place and probably not suited for Lure, more suited for a place like Applebees or along those lines. Very scattered, seemed to be more interested in hanging around the bar outside. Had to flag her down multiple times for water, drinks, to order and finally to get our check. When we go back we will ask to not be seated in her area."

  • "My favorite place for Sushi - Love the baconater and the tsunami rolls especially! I've only tried the Sushi and it is usually really delicious and fresh! I would recomend it so someone, unless you are a sushi snob, which i am not!"

  • "I have been coming to Lure for years and I have been very satisfied with the service and food. Being in the service industry I understand how things work, I was completely disappointed with my experience on Tuesday. There were only 2 of us , we ordered an appetizer a burger and sushi. We waited a good 45 mins the burger came out first , sushi next, then out appetizer. It was terrible , not one time did the manager touch our table to make sure we were happy. Our server did her best to keep us happy but it looked like she was taking care of the whole room. I am very disappointed in Lure. Better management is needed."
    Dined on 5/13/2014
  • "Not exactly a place that you go for ambience but the food was outstanding. The place appears to be mostly a bar hangout but the dining really starts inside. The carrot ginger soup was yummy while the lobster nachos with wonton chips were GREAT - love the chipolte sauce. Filet was tough and sinewey while the sushi lacked flavor. Would like to come back to try other foods as the place offered lots of choices."
    Dined on 5/10/2014
  • "Well just my friend and I but we enjoyed the Wednesday night promotion! Steak and wine with appetizer were very good and at a great price! It took a while to be acknowledged and seated but other than that it was all excellent."

  • "We went for our Anniversary and they had this fabulous "date night" special. It was 1 appetizer, 2 meals and a bottle of wine for $40!!! It was an amazing deal and the food was great. The ahi tuna nachos were perfection! We ordered two rolls and those were so good. I love that they have all the traditional rolls but also some crazy ones too. Amazing!"

  • "Went with another couple as our first choice had no tables. We were very happy with our dining experience. The sushi was incredible, the food was great and service as well. My only complaint would be that there was no Tuna option on the menu as an entree."
    Dined on 4/26/2014
  • "We used to love this place, and its Date Night concept is a great idea. This week the noise level made conversation impossible and dining quite unpleasant. The crab-crusted grouper, my favorite in the past, was goopy and awful. Our friend's filet was impossible to cut or chew, and the paella was fair at best. The chicken pot-stickers are to die for, but they alone don't make for a want-to-go-back-anytime-soon feeling. We're sure sorry to see this happen and hope something can be done to return to making Lure a pleasant place to dine and a good place for food."

  • "This was the first time dining here with my significant other. The lighting was too dim and it was too noisy. I didn't not like how the room was laid out. Not much privacy. The service was mediocre. Our order was forgotten twice for different items. The food was good but nothing spectacular. Overall I won't be coming back here again. "

  • "If you sign up for email upadates from lure bistro, they'll give you a taste of their menu and specials for the week. Wednesday's Date Night menu for two gave a great selection to choose from at a very reasonable price. My wife had a filet cooked perfectly and my crab crusted grouper was delicious and full of flavor. Of course, our favorite time of year to go to Lure Bistro is summer because they have a large outdoor patio with an energetic bar. It's always busy and they make the best sushi in northeast ohio. No, seriously..... it's outstanding sushi and a great selection. That is what we go for most often. But the dinner menu has a lot to offer, too along with an interesting selection of wines & martinis. "

The food, wine, service, etc. was great and we all had a really good time. It's nice too that there's valet parking. I highly recommend you try the oyster shooters too. GREAT TIME!"
