    We've been here a few times now. Had a great night there with our family. The food was enjoyed by all, even the vegan members who were still able to find options from the menu.

    The service was great, my steak was okay (it wasn't bad but I wouldn't describe it as delicious). When I come to a steakhouse I'm expecting a wow factor when I bite into my steak and it just wasn't there on this occasion. The chips were plentiful but overcooked and our table position wasn't great as my friend felt like he was sitting in a walkway. Overall we enjoyed our lunch but there's certainly room for improvement.

    First Saturday night out post Covid19 so we were really looking forward to it and were certainly not disappointed. Staff were great especially our waitress Alexandra, she was helpful & bubbly. Food arrived in perfect timing. All round great date night. Thank you squires loft!

    Great food as usual. Needed to put a $10 deposit per person prior to the booking which was fine but then the waitress forgot to remove it off the bill.

    They did so well to position the table to be covid safe and yet still set a good atmosphere. Our steaks were great. I usually ask for rare as I find most places overlook but I could have asked for medium rare. I think they’d benefit from a few more of the ‘favourite’ sauces like bearnaise or red wine jus, but very good steak!

    I had a work colleague in from out if town and was looking for a quite place for a meal in Essendon. Great meal, good service and noise level low enough that we could chat. I had the 400g rump cooked medium rare, my colleague the pork ribs. Both were terrific. Will definitely be back.

    It was our first meal out post Covid19 restrictions and it was an absolutely lovely experience. We were treated like family and the staff was really sweet to our 6 yo son. We'll definitely be back!

    Steak way too rare- even when it was sent back to be cooked further. chips awful. Service slow and unfriendly. I wonder if they have changed management or had a change in chef. Have been going there regularly but won’t be going anymore

    We love squires loft normally. The other branches were amazing but this was just terrible. My partner’s black angus steak was lightly seared and completely raw in the middle instead of medium rare, the scotch fillet was the worst cut I’ve had. I took one bite with stringy fatty strands coming off the steak, it put me off for the rest of the meal. It took me a while to chew that one piece. I left my steak virtually untouched and my partner left half of his when he couldn’t stomach any more blood. Not one of the staff asked what was wrong. I’ll give the place one more chance and if it’s terrible again, they won’t be seeing us around anymore.

    Great food with not a long waiting time. Staff were accommodating to us needing to delay reservation by 15mins and friendly during service. Would return.

About the restaurant

The first Squires Loft was opened in 1992 in Church Street Brighton. Our reputation for consistently delivering great steaks and unique flavours led us to a larger store in South Yarra where we are still located today.

The success of the Squires Loft formula and demand for Squires Loft branded products led to substantial interest from staff and customers who wanted to duplicate the business. This has resulted in 13 steakhouse restaurants operating, Seven under the Squires Loft banner.

These steakhouses are located around Melbourne, Country Victoria, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Western Australia. Further steakhouses are in the pipeline and there is significant interest, which we believe should lead to more Squires Loft steakhouses opening.

As a result of this demand and significant recognition of the Squires Loft name, Squires Loft FRANCHISE Pty Ltd has embraced a non traditional franchise model so as to enable the expansion of the brand and for all stores/venues to be branded as a Squires Loft steakhouse
