good seafood / sushi restaurant

Lure Bistro is a nice restaurant just off the main street in downtown Willoughby. We visited for the first time earlier this month and I was happy to hear that the Friday night special was a clam bake. My wife started her meal with a bistro salad (greens, cucumber, tomato & asiago cheese) and had... read more

The Sushi is very good especially if it is on Tuesday when many of the choices are half price. The atmosphere is very nice, but can be very noisy when busy. Our biggest gripes are first the parking. Downtown Willoughby in general is a mad house on any night. Willoughby lacks convenient parking and is very patron unfriendly. Most parking... More

Had their scallops which were large and delicious. Service was good and staff was very attentive. Seating capacity was limited so reservations after 6:00 P.M. would be advisable. Parking free except on Mondays. Cleanliness was average. Should be on your try it list.

Ate here with some business associates while visiting in Mentor. Our local contacts along with Tripadvisor recommended this restaurant to us. We arrived on a Tuesday for half price maki and futomaki rolls and happy hour specials. Highlights were the rainbow roll, the White Rabbit roll with compressed watermelon, the delicious potstickers, and the shrimp prepared a number of ways.... More

Went last night with a group of friends for dinner. They all got the all you can eat crab legs. The pieces of crab were huge and they were steaming hot. You didn't have to ask for more or wait a long time for refills as they kept bringing dishes of them. The patio looked relaxing where you could sit... More

I've heard really good things and really bad things about this place. Sushi was pretty bland. Service was a little below average.

We could not believe the horrible customer service at Lure Bistro. There were tables open on the patio but because we did not have a reservation they told us it would be a 90 minute wait. Six of us spent money on drinks in the bar waiting in good faith. The manager was mean when at 2 hours we questioned... More

My wife and I went for the happy hour menu. She got some crab cakes, coconut shrimp, and half priced sushi. She loved every bite. I got a burger. Not so much. This is not the first time I got a burger from them I wasn't pleased with. Can't say enough good things about the seafood though.
