“Go early for 'happy hour'”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

The happy-hour here runs from 4-6:00 so by the time you go after work it's pretty crowded. This Lure is smaller than the one in Camarillo and there are no reservations. The happy-hour price only applies to the front of the restaurant. If you sit in the back dining area you will not be offered it. On the happy-hour menu, the Ceviche is wonderful. That can be a whole lite meal itself and it's about $6.00.

“Fantastic Seaford”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

We were born in San Diego, so we know good seafood. This restaurant exceeded our expectations. They had a large selection of fresh fish. I had char broiled Canadian Ling Cod, and my husband had Arctic Char. It was cooked to perfection. For fresh fish with two sides, the price was very reasonable. Service was excellent. Very friendly. I'm glad I had read the other reviews because we got there on a Saturday night just before the evening rush. Can't wait to go back.

“Delicious food, decent price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I and our two children ate here last night. I had the seared ahi and Parmesan potatoe pancake and sautéed spinach. The ahi was unbelievably fresh, the spinach was perfect and the potatoe pancake was crispy outside and creamy inside and it was delicious! My husband had the swordfish and my daughter had the spicy shrimp pasta - both very fresh and very tasty. My youngest ordered off the child's menu and was super happy with his grilled cheese sandwich and fries. Our waitress Samantha was very helpful and gave great information about the food choices. Best of all was the bill didn't break the bank. Very reasonably priced even with two glasses of wine. Short 20 minute wait for a table on a Thursday night.

“Surprised!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013 via mobile

Great lunch! Loved the atmosphere and Decore at this Lure location. It reminded me of similar restaurants I have dined at while vacationing in Lahaina, Maui.
