I dined at Esquire last weekend in a party of 7. The food was quite enjoyable and well presented, however we did not know what we were eating for many of the courses. The noise level in the restaurant made for a less than enjoyable evening. We could not hear what the waiters said for either the food or wine... More

The food was good and the service attentive but it looked that the casual dining area was getting a little tired. The food was well presented and tasty but not at the special level. Prices were reasonable and service was good.

Friendly, attentive staff. Delicious innovative degustation menu accompanied by matching wines. We had trouble understanding the waiters explanations of each course due to their heavy accents. It would have been good to have been offered a written menu on arrival. (Very expensive at $250 per head with matching wine).

We were with another couple celebrating a birthday and this was their choice of venue. We did the degustation menu with matched wines. The plates were innovative but none of us loved any of our plates and many were just unremarkable. The decor and presentation were modern but the food lacked soul and the flavours weren't balanced. We were underwhelmed... More

The view is fantastic and really sets the scene for a great night. We had the 16 course degustation and I had the matching wines. The food is lovely out of all the courses there was only one I didn't like but my husband ate that! Really thoughtful dishes with a twist I liked that it was executed well and... More

Both my partner and I found Esquire outstanding both in Service and Food. The restaurant being a decent size with comfortable spacing, boasts sophistication with simplicity & a beautiful view. We shared a dish of Moreton Bay Bugs - fresh and tasty. A shared main of Slow roasted Lamb belly with sides of eggplant and radicchio - unbelievably delicious! Seriously... More

Food and service was fantastic! It is always nice to go to a restaurant that has different items on their menu and produced so exceptionally well. Great view, good for a special occasion.

Booked for my partner's 50th birthday and arrived to a complimentary glass of champagne for both of us. The location overlooking the story bridge is lovely as was the food. The menu changes frequently, so don't book a few days out thinking you already know what you're going to order! I tried the Porcini butter cake with hay cream for... More

I went there with a small group of friends to celebrate a 40th bday. The service was a bit unsatisfactory to start with but got better as evening progressed. The degustation food was great and some of the things stood out. The gnocchi was sensational! However the last desert wasnt great at all. I would have preferred the finale to... More
