Food was ok - not cheap. Some dishes were good but as a steakhouse, it was disappointing. my sister asked for medium steak yet it came medium rare. The staff were polite and redid it for her and it was still slightly rare although she just kept as it is as everyone else had finisged (or almost... read more

I love the steaks here.The service is good and the drinks menu is very good. For the food you're getting in this part of town, the prices are not outrageous. Views out to the docklands are a bonus as well. I highly recommend Squires if you're in and around the Docklands and you're looking for a decent steak.

Friendly service awesome steaks and a very large wine list. We had a great time, nice to sit back and relax looking across the water. The tables weren't crammed in so there was room to move without bumping in to the person behind you.

Attended Squires loft on the recommendation from a family friend; told ‘they do amazing steak and the best ribs’. Looking for the place was a little difficult, its street address and physical location are a little different (enter from the waterfront, not the street). On arrival we were greeted by friendly, well presented staff who were not afraid to answer... More

I have eaten here a lot but last nights meal was one of the best we had. After a very ordinary wet day, we arrived at 5pm (an hour before opening) and was allowed occupy a corner window table before restaurant formally opened. Our waiter ( a hugely entertaining French guy) mixed me one of the best cocktails I've ever... More

Great steak menu Great wine menu Space does not have the best atmosphere Better in summer rather than winter as it's very cold in the docklands

Went for a quick business meal the other night. We all had the 200g eye fillet. Good steak, enjoyed a good wine as well. We were in a hurry, and they accommodated us. Must say, the consistency of Squires Loft has been excellent.

A friend and I visited Squires Loft Docklands before the footy on saturday night. Without a reservation we were seated shortly after 6pm assuring them we were in for a quick bite before the footy. We ordered a kilo of the ribs to split and a couple of steaks each for main. My mate ordered the eye fillet and I... More

Ate here on a quiet Monday night. Service was friendly if not super efficient. Picked the place for ribs and have to say I was a little disappointed. Ordered 1kg on a previous recommendation from Trip Advisor and must say that was way too much for one person, much better to go with 500gm if you are on your own.... More

It was my partner's birthday. He didn't want a fuss. I didn't want the norm. So decided to make booking here, and walk across from home. We totally enjoyed it. We didn't go for the big sha-bang affair, we we just wanting something simple and intimate. The steak and veg were supberb. We ended up drinking two bottles of wine.... More
