I came here for a steak meal. Simple What I got was great, friendly and prompt service, a huge menu and, of course, a great steak. Exceded my expectations. Well done.

We got charged 10 percent surcharge for Sunday. And it wasn’t stated anywhere before. We had to pay so much extra for sauce and so much extra for a side salad. Was great steak but so so over priced. Can get just a good steak...More

My favourite restaurant in all of Melbourne - Squire's Loft. The Essendon location, filled with warmth, allowing for both intimate and larger gatherings. Their food never fails, and their service cannot be faulted! I could not reccommend this place any more.

Customer service has gone down dramatically here. Such a shame as the food is amazing as always. Never going here again after the service we received. Don’t do it!

6 of us have our Xmas break up lunch here every year and have always enjoyed it. The steaks are excellent, chips perfect, beer cold and service friendly and efficient. Fair pricing for quality meat too. Who needs more ? A recommended steakhouse in Essendon.

Garden salad was the highlight. Chips not crispy and unsalted. Glazing on steak was good, but they used a weird cut of rump that was way too thick to cook properly.

Squires loft Essendon was a fantastic place to eat dinner. The staff were fantastic and even came to ask if our steak was cooked just as we had ordered it (which it was). For our entre, we had fetta and garlic mushrooms which were divine...More
