Great location and nice atmosphere. A few of us at the dinner were a little disappointed in the service, however the steak and wine selection made up for that. Steak cooked to absolute perfection with a great choice of sides.

This was one of the best dining experiences I've had. The service was great, the premises was clean and tidy and a great view and the food was to die for. I would eat there any day and very happily pay for it. Its not cheap but if you enjoy good food then Squires Loft is the place to go.

The steak was cooked to perfection and the amount of sauce was needed as well as generous. The side of chips went well but the amount of aoli left a little to be desired. The wine seemed overpriced for a bottle but all in all was lovely.

This restaurant has a lovely atmosphere. The service was very good and the staff friendly. It is a little pricey thought. I thought it a bit strange how to get any vegetables or salad, that is an extra cost on top of the meal. Overall though, it was a pleasant dining experience.

Caught up with friends I worked with three years ago. WE had drinks beforehand then had a 7pm booking. Great steaks, great sauces, fabulous chips (fries) and salad for the healthy pice. Great wine selection. The meat at these places is always very good. Goos table service as well.

December in Melbourne can be very hot so eating outside is not recommended at lunchtime, though this time the weather was only in the low 20's it was the perfect place to be. This was for a end of year business lunch and the setting was just brilliant. The food as per any Squires Loft was just as good, the... More

One of the best steak restaurant's I have been to. Entrees are nice but hard to share. No basic garlic bread but the share for 4 entree was amazing, tast fantastic. Steaks the best. Remember to read the menu as salad and veg are extra. Sauces ask about the gravy as it was cream base (which i like) but not... More

This place is always a guaranteed good time. The service is friendly however we do wish they were a little faster on the drinks. The food is always absolutely to die for and you will always end up eating so much that I doubt you will find room for desert because you just can't stop eating! I will be back,... More

If you want to guarantee yourself a good steak head here. They always deliver on their steaks just as you request from the kitchen - can't go past the pepper sauce. Sometimes it's hard to secure a reservation.

Had to wait an hour for a table - although didn't look full? Not a bad steak - certainly cooked to liking - but nowt flash and chips very average. Extra charge for sauce and sides pushes the total bill up. Decent wine list. Service great.

Thank Baxie
