Fantastic, menu, food service atmosphere. Last night April 20th., was after the Earthday event up the street, it was busy, yet they delivered excellence! The Bloody Mary was best, and the Salmon Burger was excellent. We will be back.

We had an early New Year’s Eve dinner before heading back to Santa Barbara. The environment was fun and not too loud, even for a holiday weekend. The food was delicious and prices reasonable.

Lure is a small California seafood chain with fine standards for service and high quality food. The downtown Ventura location is no exception.

It’s back! After several years of Covid crisis the Lure Fish House is back with quality food, good selection of oysters, great service in a prime location. Visited on a Friday happy hour for drinks and food. Had the house Chardonnay. Excellent for a house...wine. There was an excellent selection of fresh oysters. Also shared steam clams and fish and chips. All items on HH specials except the fish and chips. The only thing missing was the pre-covid crowds. Time to come back and enjoy one of Ventura’s top restaurants.More

Great happy hour prices if you sit in the bar area. Superior shrimp cocktail and clam chowder. Sea bass was just okay , over cooked and overly spiced. Wonderful service and atmosphere!

Lure is my absolutely favorite seafood restaurant. I recently has the grilled rockfish for the first time and was pleasantly surprised how good it was. I have had the fish tacos in the past as well aa the salmon. All are delicious.

Delicious and fresh seafood. I went 4 times in this place during my vacation. Food was so good. Take the lobster ravioli, clams linguini, seared tuna, branzino, sea bass…… Price is very affordable and the corkage fee for the wine was $10. Service was top....I will come back soon.More

This is the 4th time we ate at Lure. Because it has such good reviews I kept giving it another chance, but alas it is highly overrated. The last time most of my food was burned and they did replace it, but it took quite...a while and they replaced the wrong item the first time. The portions on the sides are very small and half the time the brussel sprouts are burned. This last time they were so burned they tasted like charcoal and the potato patty was also burned. On the plus side the fresh bread is always good.More

We needed an early dinner as we had tickets for a seven o’clock show, so we got to Lure just before five, as they don’t take reservations. We were quickly seated and the server was quickly there to take our order. We weren’t quite ready,...and the server quickly came back again so we ordered. She wanted the advertised Whole Branzino, I had the caesar salad with seared Ahi, which I asked to be as close to raw as possible. The tuna was medium. Tasty, but not as requested. The “whole” Branzino had no head and no bones. Tasty, but not as advertised. As soon as she was done with her food her plate was quickly removed, while I continued to eat. When I finished mine, the server was ready with the verbal dessert list (it is quicker than leaving a menu). She was freshening up, and wasn’t there to hear, server seemed off that I asked him to wait for her to return. Have you seen the trend? We weren’t there an hour and it really was the kind of meal we’d have liked to linger over a bit. Big line outside, so I guess it’s working for them and they won’t have to alter their methods.More

Dined here after a trip to the Channel Island, and we were pretty hungry! Restaurant is beautifully decorated, server was pleasant and helpful. There were some interesting side dishes. Our meals of Trout Almondine and Seared Ahi each came with two sides so we tried...pineapple coleslaw, sautéed spinach, cheddar potato cake and French fries. We enjoyed every bite !More

Ate at Lure-Ventura a decade ago; gave it a 5-star review back then and looked forward to returning. Lunch this time around was no less wonderful: beautifully spiced Veracruz fish chowder, hearty mango ceviche and superbly grilled local swordfish. Servers were cordial but not obtrusive...in this comfortable modern setting.More

They do, but the restaurant is more suited to adults. It's quite sophisticated and we've never seen children there. Not sure how children woukd be tolerated.
