We are so sorry that this restaurant and bar is closed, thanks to the approach of Nobu. Plenty of excellent Japanese restaurants, very few like Lure and Till. The staff was amazing, professional and pleasant-now out of work!!!! A real shame this restaurant is closed!
We will miss this place (closing early Jan 2017). Great staff and great food.
Food and service was great, went for Brunch on Christmas Day, not a lot of open restaurants, very glad we found this gem
We picked Lure & Till for our Christmas Day brunch with family because of the yelp reviews and we were not disappointed. Everyone's meal was delicious but the two who ordered the hamburgers said the meat was outstanding, and we will all definitely come back again. Excellent service as well.
We've eaten here many times in the past couple years and previously this was one of our favorite Palo Alto restaurants. This particular meal only the kid pasta and hamachi appetizer got rave reviews. Too much sauce on most dishes so you lost the main flavors, sloppy composition, and slow service for the number of other patrons in the restaurant. The server was attentive when we shared our concerns, did tell us the chef had changed in the past few months,and offered a complimentary dessert (the deconstrcuted smores were quite good).
The cocktails were incredible, I don't think you can go wrong with any of them! The food was okay.We absolutely loved the ambiance and the service was impeccable! I'd definitely come back for the drinks
Nice dinner out with a friend. Chickpea fritters in romesco sauce was a great decision.
Good ambience and food selections. Our server was very informative..
Before arriving in Palo Alto, we spent a few days in Napa where we had a number of excellent meals, but all four of us agreed that Lure + Till provided a great experience from start to finish. The decor is unique and provides a good vibe. The service was flawless but the highlight was the fresh and delicious food, especially the vegetables! The kitchen had no trouble accommodating dietary preferences and every dish was outstanding. The roasted vegetable salad was great. I had the duck and my husband had the cobia. Two of our young adult kids had risotto and one had scallops. We all cleaned our plates and made room for dessert. We will definitely return here whenever we are in Palo Alto.
We went here for Thanksgiving dinner, and enjoyed it. The food was pretty good, and the service was friendly and attentive. We liked the gourmet take on the traditional Thanksgiving favorites, and the pastry chef did an excellent pumpkin pie.
Service was stellar- from the hostess to the waitstaff. Unfortunately most of the food didn't match the excellence of the staff. The chopped salad was colorful and flavorful but the fried chicken sandwich was weird- the chicken skin wasn't fried. Instead it was left pale and rubbery with a thick fried batter surrounding it. My husband'S burger was over cooked and the deviled eggs were dense and without much flavor.
We had an outstanding meal! Perfect scallops, excellent duck breast, and the celery root soup was as good as our waitress said. Timely service, water glass refilled, one of the nicest dinners we have eaten this year!
Short story: Overpriced for a menu that isn't executed well.
Long story: Lure and Till has great interior decoration, it looks like a great place for a business dinner or upscale date.
Service was slow, they often ignored me when I tried to get their attention and it took almost 20 minutes to get my drink order.
The menu has a wealth of delicious looking items that are somewhat expensive. If these items were executed well, they would be worth the price. However, I found that many menu items failed to deliver. I got their octopus appetizer, the octopus was overcooked and I only got 3 small pieces and the rest of the plate was overly bitter vegetables with no other flavors to counter the bitterness. The scallop entree was fantastic, the scallops were cooked perfectly and the accompanying ingredients worked well together. Finally, I got the poached pear for dessert. The pear was either under-ripe to begin with or it wasn't poached long enough because I had to use a steak knife to cut through it. It was also overwhelmingly flavored of red wine, which is was poached in, but there wasn't enough else going on with the dish to make it worth more than just getting a glass of red wine.
Overall, I paid an expensive bill for a meal that did not deliver. Would not recommend unless you only want to get the scallop entree, then it would be worth it.
Perfectly fine meal, but nothing special and there are much better alternatives for the price. We enjoyed their signature pasta special, but otherwise found the dishes to be just okay.
Entire staff (including General manager) pitch in to make service outstanding. I'm a sucker for service with a smile, everyone was very pleasant! Would've rated food higher if my husband's Lamb pasta dish wasn't so overcooked. My squid in pasta was exceptional! As was the passion fruit dessert. Love the appetizers and the fresh crisp Market salad. Glad to find another option in PA. Walk into town if you're able, parking is ridiculous!
