Service was exceptional and the food was fabulous.
I had clam chowder and Brussels sprouts. Tasted my sil's flank steak which was flavorful and tender. Daughters halibut was perfect.

“Excellent experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

I love this place. The food, atmosphere, service and prices are all excellent. Their happy hour is fantastic. We had two beers, one bloody mary, 2 orders of crab cakes, ahi plate, and two shrimp cocktails for $50. You can't go wrong here.

“Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2014

When we want fish we go here. Since it opened we have been back again and again. Great variety of seafood..numerous fresh fish options and a number of different oysters along with Maine lobster and great ceviche. Modern atmosphere w/ outdoor seating..plenty of tables but still expect a line during regular meal times..go in the middle of the afternoon and have a seat. Some of the best service we have ever seen. Park in the city garage on the corner for free. It may take a little time to get your order as it can be busy.

“Great Oyster Bar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2014

Dined at this restaurant twice. Once for lunch and once for dinner. The fish was fresh and the oysters were outstanding. Grilled Ono was recommended and didn't disappoint. Winner.

“Good Food, Slow Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

Usually eat at the Lure in Camarillo but this time stayed in Ventura so I thought I'd give it a try. Easy to get to but street parking (pay) difficult during peak time. Restaurant loud and not as pretty decor as Camarillo location. Large bar area. Short wait period (15 mins). Sat in back and in corner which was cozy but believe that is why service was slow. (Out of sight, out of mind.) Drinks refilled once, when dinner was served. Food took a long time to come out and once served server didn't come around again until finished. I had the spicy seafood pasta which was very yummy (sauce) but seafood (mussels/clams) was small and a bit overcooked. Good thing I was with friends, for they made the overall experience good.
