First time at Lure Fish House. We arrived at 6 PM on a Friday night without reservations (they don't take them) and waited for only 10 mins. We were greeted quickly by Branden and were offered drinks: wine for the Mrs. and iced tea for...me. We split a crab cocktail and then she got the Lure Cioppino and I got the Fish and Chips, all for $94 plus tip. Branden brought out a basket of sourdough rolls that were Devine. They were hot, with a chewy crust and pillowy center; perfect with the soft butter. Our entrees arrived shortly thereafter. The Cioppino was bountiful with seafood: clams, mussels, fish, scallops and shrimp. It had a rich tomato broth with delicate seasoning. A slice of toasted bread accompanied the bowl. My Fish and Chips arrived with a ramekin of pineapple slaw and a tin-cone of fries. I opted for the sweet potato fries, since ‘chips’ (plank fries) weren’t offered. There was also dill tarter sauce and thousand island dressing. The fish filets were battered and fried to a golden crust. I thought they were going to be heavy but they were so light and flaky, exactly as I hoped they would be. The ambiance was a little weird: the decor was good, with nautical themes throughout but the disco music was odd. I wasn’t expecting The Bee Gees nor Kool and The Gang during dinner. Overall, I would recommend Lure for a romantic dinner or even a group of couples for a pod seafood dinner.More

Finally stopped in for dinner. Large and expansive. Oysters cooked/raw, fish, shrimp, combos with pasta. Clam chowder is excellent. Salads very good. I had the spicy seasonal rigatoni with shrimp and scallops. Good size serving, and very good.

Our first course was the grilled oysters with garlic, butter and parsley. They were okay but not as good as a Rockefeller version. The other appetizer was the grilled artichoke which was a bit messy but not much you can do. The heart was the...prize once you nibbled away at the leaves. If you are hungry then avoid the artichoke. The shrimp dish was not bad and had good flavour. The Branzio fish was grilled perfectly and butterflied. The disappointment was the balsamic carrots and the mushrooms with snap peas. Really need to freshen up the vegetables. Keep in simple and crips. Simple steam and a light butter.More

We shared an order of Rockfish Ceviche. Very good, plenty of fish and avocado. Two of us had...Kale Salad with Salmon the other Fish Tacos. All dishes were gobbled up, great sign.

Happy Hour. The waiter came to our table chomping on gum. Gross The crab cakes on the menu were not available because”crab costs too much now”. The calamari was freezer burned and dried out. He did remove it from the bill. The ceviche had red...peeper and was quite spicy, this after a lengthy discussion with him about spice levels. I don’t tolerate spicy dishes well and I have a shrimp allergy which was in the spicy one. I mentioned this too him and he said” oh this one has a red color to it, they must have given you the wrong one”Eh I love ceviche and could not eat it, even though without the red pepper I think I would have enjoyed it. My husband ate some, he did not take it off the bill. The six oysters on the shell were clean and tasty, but again our waiter quoted us the wrong price🤷‍♀️Lastly, we sat on the patio, the nautical chairs had blue cushions that were horribly stained. This restaurant is in severe need of a good manager to run it adequately!! Potential is there, but people won’t be if it continues in this state. There is far too much competition to support mediocrity in Scottsdale.More

My wife and I love this place. The prices are reasonable, the fish is fresh, and the service is great. The calamari serving is large and not frozen rings. The clam chowder is fantastic, as is the fish soup, which is red sauced based. Oysters,...fish tacos, ahi, sand dabs, everything on the munu is great.More

In Greek mythology, sirens lure Sailors to their death. The Lure Fish House does not go that far, but it’s still quite lousy, actually. I’ll try to synthesize this story: PROs: - Nice digs - Nice digs - Fresh air on the patio CONs: -...Poor service, and I’ll elaborate: It takes forever to get a server, this is happening in an almost “dead” hour of the afternoon, when only a few tables are occupied. Once you get that server, he is moody and never around when needed. You have to ask for the table to be cleaned and even then it is not. Loud “boom boom” type music at all times, overwhelming conversations and ambiance. - Mediocre food at best, and I’ll elaborate: They feature an Oyster Bar. As we all know, when you order oysters in an Oyster Bar, you will usually be offered a selection of all available on that day. Not here, you get half or one dozen of the same, accompanied by some ketchup and raw horseradish. The “grilled vegetables” are actually steamed to a complete mush and thus, inedible. The Bass is bland and tasteless, a complete waste. The “whole roasted branzino” is actually only half. Bread is never offered, until you ask for it by name; The wine list and bar spirits are quite limited. Lunch for two under the above circumstances with no appetizers, just main course and a bottle of Rose, comes to $132.36 with tax, but before tip. As you can imagine, I did not leave much of a tip. And I’m not going back. **More

Disappointed at a few poor reviews after we loved this place last year! Went anyway. Very good meal and service. Yes, oysters small, but some are supposed to be -- large are meatier, but small more delicate with wonderful flavor. My fish with the tail...and skin on great, and my husband's fish stew very good.More

My partner and I have been frequent diners (about 2 to 3 times a week) at Lure for lunch and dinner. We live within 5 minutes of the restaurant. Here was our experience. We came in and sat in the bar area, open seating. It...took awhile for anyone to get to us, and that wasn't too important to us. We always order the sea bass skewers as they are excellent! The server told us that sea bass was now out of season and that they now had cod instead. We said we'd take the cod skewers instead. We thought we'd try it. We ordered 2 servings each, and they were $17 each. After some time, they arrived, and it was the smallest pieces of fish I've ever seen. They said it was 4 ounces of fish, but it wasn't anything like the sea bass skewers. There were no skewers. To top it off, 2 of the very small pieces came out raw. I asked for a manager, and the young man came over, listened to me, and told me that the fish was the same amount of ounces as the sea bass skewers. Since we've eaten them many times, we knew otherwise. And for $17 for a very small piece of cod, was ridiculous. The manager told us that they were trying a new way of preparing and presenting the meal. We told them it was very misleading and not good. I just asked that my 2 pieces of cod be cooked so I could finish them. 15 minutes later, after my partner had finished eating and was just staring at me, they brought mine out. The manager told me that they were marinating them longer and that's why it appeared undercooked. The server told us that there was a new cook in the back and that they had several meals that had to be redone that night. We never ask for any concessions and and server was extremely helpful. We at least expected some sort of discount or concession, etc. They seemed to not care. So, now we don't care. We won't be back. There are many different restaurants in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area to choose from, and we'll be choosing some place else. Very disappointing.More

When this place opened up in 2020, I absolutely loved it. Not anymore. The portions are miserably small and I had one of the worst martinis I have ever had in my life there recently. the crab cakes barely have any crab in them. They...totally forgot my husband’s order and when it came, it was lousy. And the oysters on the half shell? How did they find oysters this tiny? The ones we got were dime sized. Service was forgetful and the overall experience just stunk. I won’t be back.More

When we found out about Lure Fish House, a California based company, we were pretty excited since there aren’t many seafood restaurants in the Valley. My wife & I went for lunch the other day. The decor was very nice and the service was just...okay. For appetizers, we had the raw oysters, the charbroiled oysters and the fried calamari. The raw oysters had lots of shell pieces, the charbroiled was just OK and the calamari was over fried and heavy. As main courses, my wife had the lobster ravioli and I had the Fish & Chips. The lobster ravioli was in a very rich and very a heavy cream sauce. It was not to our liking. Re: the Fish & Chips, the fish was fried in a very heavy batter, similar to the calamari. I’ve had much better. I expected better from a restaurant specializing in seafood. For desert, we shared the key lime pie. It was very good and met our expectations. Maybe it was what we ordered but as a first experience, we were hoping for better. I wish them luck and success in AZ but they need to up their game. We are likely not to go back.More
