Thanks for the attention, however I was extremely disappointed with some of the wait staff. In asking for two glasses of wine, they instead gave me the entire bottle, and two seperate wines! Of course I insisted on just the two glasses of a regular wine, which one waitstaff kindly took away the bottle and apologised for the misunderstanding. After that we had another waiter attend our table and tell us we can only have this bottle, however this was not even made clear to us as we asked for a recommendation of just two glasses of wine! Very clear that we were being taken advantage of in a circumstance where we couldn’t articulate in English. Extremely disappointed from that experience, my friend was made to buy two different wines, and a bottle, when they simply wanted two glasses. The waiter knew this and knowingly manipulated the table into buying more and not taking it back when we confronted him. Appalled. “This was written by some one else due Sebastian luck of English.”

We had a reservation booked for Saturday 23rd March for 4 people and we were disappointed with the value and quality of food, we ordered the prawns to start and to share as there were 4 of us, we expected to receive at least 4 however we received 3 which seemed strange. For the main course, we ordered two dishes again to share as the steak on the menu suggested it was 500grams (enough to share) however when we received the steak it was definitely not 500grams more like 350grams and the Lamb was mainly gristle and fat.
Slightly disappointing on the food.

The spotlights above the tables for 2 against the wall are too bright, they dimmed about 7pm but still not a great ambience for us. Thanks

We booked last minute on a Saturday and were given an excellent table with a fantastic view. The food was lovely, if slightly on the expensive side for what it was. Our only issue was the taciturn service from our waiter! He brought one of us the wrong drink, then insisted she ordered vodka lemonade instead of Diet Coke (we all heard her say Diet Coke) and wouldn’t replace it. Then when she asked if it was st least diet lemonade, he said yes! Now, I know they had no diet lemonade because I asked for some (from a different barman) earlier. And I tasted it also- it was regular lemonade. And she cannot drink sugary drinks for health reasons. Not used to waiters being so rude! Also the starters came out missing one dish, and when we asked him for it, he rudely banged it down on the table. By the way, all the other servers were brilliant but he left a bad taste.

Arrived at 7.00pm. Mix up on tables as we had relatives booking same night. Food order taken at 7.45pm and meals delivered at 9.15pm. Poor service and still added 10% gratuity to the bill. Would not recommend.

2nd time I have been to the restaurant on 1st floor to dine. Much busier this time and seated in the round room at the end. View wasn’t as spectacular this time as a cruise was in dock! The tables are all quite close to one another so a bit cramped but food was delicious and our waiters very good. We will be back!

Good restaurant, obviously due to busy week the tomahawk steak 1.4kg wasn't available and the view on the opera house disturbed by a very BIG Ferry
Otherwise it's a fantastic place

We booked in for my husband’s birthday. Unfortunately, they failed to mention that there was a large cruise ship at dock, blocking the view of the Opera House.

Despite this, we had an enjoyable dinner experience with very attentive staff. The food was delicious and cocktails went down nicely

We waited 15 minutes for our table booked at 7.30pm.
Ordered food and didn’t receive dinner till after 9pm.
I asked for a starter meal to be a main and it still came out as a starter.
The best part was the gorgeous view.
I wouldn’t go again cause even the restaurant became quite loud.

I would recommend the PUB and will come back for the pub a million times. Amazing view, pub food selection is great, service is good to pub standards, life music gives the place a cool vibe, and of course wine & beer offers are great. However, the dining area menu is not as great and I wouldn't go back for the food. The view is outstanding, the service is great but the menu could be improved to get along with the amazing deco, the prices and the best view in the harbour.

We had a booking at 2pm on a regular Friday. The restaurant had 2 large groups of 15+ and maybe 4-5 smaller groups of 2-4 but it was very spacious and not at all intrusive of our personal space. Food was good and wait times were reasonable. 2 steaks 1 drink a beer and 3 red wines were $170. Unfortunately there was a cruise ship at dock which blocked our view which is obviously of no fault or flaw of the establishment. We were seated closest to the wine wall and could not be seated elsewhere due to a scheduled event. We were given two free glasses of champagne to celebrate our moment and allowed onto the round room for a few minutes and photos. Had we been given any one of the other tables which remained free til we had left then I would be more complimentary. Overall a good experience with room for improvement.

I heard about this restaurant from a work colleague and I'm glad I decided to check it out.
Went on Valentine's Day so was a set menu, but the food was outstanding.
Great service from friendly staff and the overall ambiance was very nice with just the right amount of lighting.
Great location with the Harbour Bridge on one side and a view to the Opera House on the other.
I recommend a visit and I'll definitely be going back again (even just for a pizza and one of Squires many beers on tap).

I requested a window seat and me and my wife were actually the first ones there and didn’t get it. I think the tables are also a bit to close to each other so not much privacy. I understand there’s not much you can do about that but just giving some honest feedback.

We came to Squires Landing for an evening of great food and celebration as it was my wife's birthday.
We were disappointed. We started off with a small pitcher of a cocktail for 2. It was tasty but watered down. I tried a sampler of 4 different beers. They were balanced and tasty but nothing spectacular. We enjoy raw oysters and ordered 6. They were warm. We've traveled all over the world and never had room temperature oysters before. They are always chilled. Fortunately, no ill effects. For entrees I had the Barremundi which was fine. My wife had the crab salad as an entrée. It was 95% salad greens and shaved fennel and 5% crab. She was very disappointed. The waitress had suggested the sourdough bread which was described as cheesy, crisp and garlicy. It was cheesy only. As far as service, very good. The views were also great.
