Seafood only

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.

One of the best sushi places in the Cleveland area. Thursday nights they also have all you can eat crab legs.

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

This rating is solely based on the service from the man checking guests in, sitting at the computer. The food is good, but it doesn't excuse this man. My friend and I made reservations for Tuesday night, as we had multiple other times. It is half price sushi so it is always busy. When I got there I was offered... More

Went here on a Friday night out with friends. The service was very good and the food was even better. From the lobster tails to steak to pasta - everyone's meals were amazing and cooked to perfection. The caprese salad had perfectly ripened tomatoes but the real talking point for all of us were their crab coquettes appetizer. They are... More

This is the second time that I had spent way to long at this restaurant. We stopped in for a drink and some appetizers and ended up spending the evening. The patio is amazing, the bartenders were very attentive and the food was awesome. If you are looking for somewhere to have a few cocktails, and some great food this... More

We were looking for a quiet place for dinner. I love fish and my husband is definitely a meat lover. Menu looked good. In the upstairs room the table next to us was very loud and the music was loud as well. Food was good - not outstanding. Maybe it was just our mood. I would certainly go back and... More

Excellent food and service. One of us had the signature dish, Crab Crusted Grouper with tarragon cream sauce, and declared it one of the best dishes she ever had. Both started with salad of roasted butternut squash and greens with goat cheese. Excellent. I had the daily special of Striped bass and it was done perfectly. Delicious. Our waiter (sorry,... More
