We love Lure Bistro for their Kale Salad, awesome appetizers and their fish selection is always very good. I have never had a bad meal here. We are only 5 minutes away so we dine here often. One of our favorites Downtown Willoughby restaurants. If you are here in the summer, you must check out the patio. Lots of seating... More

A big *shrug* for Lure from us. A paste of Siracha and mayo seems to drive their "Asian fusion" menu but the concoctions just don't seem to work for us. We found many of the fusion items more nauseating than pleasant - an example of the end result not coming out better than the sum of its parts. Hard to... More

Lure Bistro has a date night dinner on Wednesdays that is a very good deal, and we decided it would be our Valentine's Day dinner--two days early. For $40 for two people, you get a bottle of wine (six wines to choose from), an appetizer to share, and two entrees (choice of four or five). The service was fine(good suggestions... More

I absolutely LOVE sushi, and was told that Lure was to place to go in the east-side Cleveland suburbs, so we checked it out for a birthday celebration. First of all, the selections on the sushi menu we plentiful, so maybe we just made so-so choices, but the flavor combinations we nothing special, fine-good, but not amazing or unique. Also,... More

This is our favorite happy hour in our area. You have to sit at the bar to receive the special prices. $5 martini's, $4 sushi, lobster nachos, etc. I could go on and on. Always a great time and Denise is a great bartender/server. Always friendly. The only down side is they save seats for regulars who sometimes don't get... More

On a small side street in downtown Willoughby, Ohio (15 miles due east of Cleveland) is a real gem, Lure Bistro. Not only do they have great daily Happy Hour specials, attentive staff, and excellent sushi, the outdoor patio has a great vibe and the indoor bar has an incredible aquarium! Tuesday is half-price sushi night. The place has been... More

It was so so food. Service was poor. Seated upstairs in what looked like an attic with peeling wallpaper and the thermostat hanging from the ceiling. Server was busy with 5 tables and not very attentive. Basically it was order your drink, order your food, want dessert? No. Here's your check. I would consider going back in the summer and... More

This is a wonderful little restaurant tucked away on a side-street in downtown Willoughby. Happy Hour, which is at the bar only, includes magaritas, beer, and long-island ice teas, plus other wines and martinis. The Red Device and Spicy Tuna maki rolls were so appetizing and the lobster nachos were to die for. We ate inside at the bar and... More
