Classy Casual Dining

It is part of Esquire which provides a set menu and ESQ is more casual small plates to share. The food list was relatively small by more than adequate and each dish was creative and very well presented and tasty. Service was as expected and prices typical of the riverfront in Brisbane .

They cook on charcoal which gives the food a really nice flavour. It is expensive but worth it. I thought I'd booked at the restaurant Esquire, however when we got there was told the booking was at Esq which is a casual area of the restaurant. I made the booking online. They need to sort this out, very confusing.

My husband and another couple who are good friends of ours, really enjoy good food and wine and trying new places to eat. When we travel together, we treat ourselves to a night out at top rated restaurant we've have heard great things about to try a new eating experience. Hearing Esquire is Brisbane's top restaurant, we decided to try... More

I was a bit skeptical about this place based on some of the reviews and rating but it exceeded my expectations. Had a lunch degustation and all courses were amazing. It has the right balance of innovation/ originality and taste. Couldn't fault any of the dishes which took our taste buds on a great journey. My 2 daughters are 12... More

We were blown away with the food that was presented. After reading reviews we were not sure what to expect. Trip advisor had 1 star to 5 stars. The food was amazing, it was a great experience. The staff are fantastic and the prices not too bad. Highly recommend if you enjoy great experiences.

Esquire - one of a very few hatted restaurant in QLD. Great location - just a bit secluded from other river front restaurants but still with nice river view. Thought it'd be more than pricey for lunch but it was super reasonable and great vale for money indeed. Loved the greens - it's a must have share plate. We ordered... More

My wife and I had a 14 courses degustation menu with matching wines here last week. Wow, wow, wow! It was the amazing! The best dining experience ever. Seriously, we have tried quite a few Michelin star restaurants in Europe before, but Esquire was above them regarding food quality. They use great combination of tastes. I like the concept of...

We had a work Xmas lunch for workmates a few days ago. All of us had the degustation menu. The food was reasonable (maybe they tried too hard), but the service was, well, left wanting. We had to ask for cutlery for one course. At one stage one of our table asked the waitress for another drink as the glasses... More

I had a Xmas party dinner here recently and I was a little under whelmed. The service was average considering the price and level of restaurant. We were left at the end of the meal to find our way to the front counter to pay. Then the service was average after spending nearly $1400 for 5 guests! Should have been... More
