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.

On two occasions I have had very bad experience trying to get table at Squires Loft Docklands. Their owner /manager should seriously revisit as this approach is offensive to customers and is money losing and resource wasting for the business. I have turned up a bit early, right around noon to a totally empty restaurant, I mean 40 tables empty... More

Cute little cafe with quick and friendly service. The food wasn't for me but most people would enjoy it. I'd definitely stop in again for a drink with a friend.

Dropped in on a quiet Tuesday evening. We asked for a kids menu. The waiter said they don't have one and offered no suggestions, just stared down at us. We said we didn't want to pay $40 for a meal our 8 year old would leave most of, could they do kids portions? The waiter just shrugged, spread his arms... More

A group of business colleagues were in Docklands for 1 night and we hadn’t booked anywhere. After a quick review of Trip Advisor we made a booking . The restaurant was very busy (not usually a good sign), the staff were friendly, the wine list was adequate. The steaks were pretty good and the service was ok. Next time a... More

We eat here regularly and always enjoy the eye fillet, always cooked just the way we ask for it. It's important to note that I am celiac and they provide an excellent selection of food I can eat (most of their menu)

Thank TheAdventurer_10
