Lure was a very contemporary restaurant serving outstanding seafood. I really enjoyed the oyster bar. Plenty of choices of oysters to chose from and very fresh tasting. The bar service was professional and made excellent martinis. Really recommend this restaurant for a group of friends...or business people.More

In spite of the pandemic, we were seated in about 20 minutes. You do get a printed menu which, of course, is mostly seafood. I am handicapped and they provided good seating for us. Our server was friendly, but not to the point of being...too friendly. We decided to go with mostly starters. We had the spicy ceviche, the clam chowder, a lobster roll, and a shrimp salad. All of them were great. Our total came up to $64 and it was worth it! They were not in a hurry to push us out of our seats. It was our first visit and we would certainly come again.More

The food has taken a small step backwards but the red chowder, crab cakes and sand dabs are still outstanding. My favorite was the cioppino but it's a lot skimpier now. Like most places, portions have shrunk and prices have increased but that's the price...to be paid for the shutdown. At least they survived and that's a good thing.More

The food and service were excellent! The waiter was very knowledgeable about what was being served and I left mine in his hands. My wife ordered a different dish and said it was very good. Our friends suggested Lures and had something different, All was...good.More

This restaurant was close to my hotel. I was visiting Camarillo for business. I ate there twice. First night was fish and chips. Soggy fish average fries, cold salad uneventful. Second night ceviche was not good, a soggy pink fish, not good. The key lime...pie was also not good. Find another place. Staff was excellent.More

This restaurant is just Amazing!! Every plate is just made to perfection. We came early and had an outside table right away, but when we left there was a 2 hour wait. They must be doing something right! Start with the bread, homemade, warm, with...homemade butter. We had Crab Cakes and Ahí ceviche to die for. Then we ordered Clam Chowder and spicy sea food pasta. They did not have the latter in the menu, but the waiter was very accommodating and had the chef prepare it for us. The service was impecable! Jack was an excellent waiter, we appreciate his cordiality and friendliness. He made a mistake in the type of ceviche we ordered so he brought it for free and our other plate came in right on time. This is a definitely come back even thou we drove 1.5 hours to eat here.More

Very helpful server who was very knowledgeable about the different dishes and offered options. We ordered sand dabs, a local seafood; branzino, a mild white fish; tequila lime shrimp, and white clam chowder. Did not like the sweet potato saute, wasn't quite what my wife...thought it would be. She told the server about the side and it was removed from our bill. All of the seafood dishes were fresh and seasoned well.More

Went to Lure in January to celebrate my mom’s birthday. It was busy for lunch but we got seated quick. They had big serving portions, enough to share with family members. Seafood dishes were yummy. We would gladly come back if we decide on seafood...meals again.More

Always Excellent fish. Good side dishes. Love the spinach and cream corn. Most of the time good service. The last time the waitress got a little mixed up. But still enjoyable meal . They are always so crowded so you do you ever wait they...do not accept reservations but it’s worth the wait.More

Excellent experience. Everything from appetizers to dessert was wonderful. Our server was attentive to 4 year old. There were a lot of “bite shares” and every dish was delicious. Even our Vegan was pleased.

Having the freshest seafood in the area, this restaurant is very consistent. Often it is very busy, especially during Happy Hour

Ate there with my sister, wife, and son on December 31 2019. The food was awesome. We all had Sally’s Sand Dabs, and they were incredible. The French fries were hot and lightly salted, the clam chowder unbelievable, and the Key Lime pie over the...top. Our server, Chad, was really excellent. The Lure is one of my favorite restaurants in the world, and I travel a lot.More

The choices of seafood are many and you can start with oysters and end with local fish, while the fish soup is excellent as it incorporates it all.

Have been to Lure—all the branches—many times. Most recently I was solo and got there at the end of happy hour. Sat at the friendly bar, ordered delicious Fanny Bay oysters with a glass of wine. Great dinner and very good value.
