Lure Restaurant & Bar - Delta Victoria Ocean Pointe
Birthday SpecialMy family really enjoyed our experience @ Lure, they offer a celiac /gluten free menu, which makes ordering a lot easier when one is looking for this! The freshness of the food, salads, seafood, & meats was incredible, nicely plated. We has great service, timely, friendly but not intruding!
It was a special birthday occasion & the birthday "girl" was treated to a lovely decorated plate with the dessert! Nice touch!
Beautiful view of Victoria's inner harbour & the parliament buildings, especially at night!
We all shared a lovely meal & evening!10/3/2013 12:00:00 AMBeautiful Spot for Dinner...ok foodMy wife and I came to Lure for our 5th anniversary. I had let the restaurant know about the occasion and they reserved for us an amazing corner table next to the windows overlooking the harbor. Derek, I believe his name was, was our waiter and provided very attentive service but also knew we weren't there to chit chat. We decided to do entrees instead of the Dine Around menu, which looked like a great deal. I was surprised at how small the portions were for the price. $35 for 6-8 1-to-2 bite frenched lamb chops was a little disappointing. The halibut my wife ordered was cooked perfectly, but tasted almost like nothing. Good thing the truffle emulsion on the plate was tasty. I'd come back again, but wouldn't order any of the same items.8/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant, lovely views. AGreat restaurant, lovely views.
A bit too noisy to have a business dinner, but we just cut back on the agenda...
I've been to the Lure several times, and have no hesitation in recommending it.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMKeep going back.willingness of chef to cater for lactose intolerance gourmet. avail of garden omelette egg whites only.

I found the menu to be rather limited apart from the seafood.
My partner had the pork and said it was really creamy.
The chocolate cake was very good
The staff were very helpful, friendly and polite.
Overall I would recommend Lure but only for special occasions and if you are prepared to spend the money.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMBland foodEverything was great, the service, the fantastic view and ambiance...except the food. It wasn't awful, but it wasn't excellent either. The scallop was cooked perfectly and tasty but the crab cakes were bland. I ordered the rack of lamb with granola, the lamb was cooked medium and it was perfect. However, the sauce with granola was weird, it was sweet and yet minty. I was expecting something savoury and possibly a touch of sweetness but the hints of mint was throwing me off. It was like eating an entree and dessert at the same time. My husband had the halibut and again, the sauce was bland.
There was no dish that we would go back there for. The view was fantastic though.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat special occasion placeI have booked a table in advance in Lure asking to hold a special table as it was my boyfriends bday. We were greeted in a friendly manner and shown to our table, which as we discovered later was the best table. service was great. We ordered crabcakes and calamari to start and they were great! very tender and gentle!Then we ordered special duck breast that didnt disappoint either! And we finished with goat cheesecake and flour-less chocolate cake. They have written Happy Birthday on my boyfriends plate which was nice since we did not mention that it was his birthday since we arrived. i was a bit disappointed in flourless cake as it seemed a bit too dense, dry and a bit hard to eat.
Overall, it was a great choice for a romantic celebration!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
