The simple philosophy of Marble & Grain is to look at the classic elements of European Steakhouses and deliver them in a modern form. Created by the award-winning Australian architecture firm, Paul Kelly Designs, Marble & Grain covers two distinct spaces. The first is the bar area, featuring high tables and stools, as well as a row of low tables that take full advantage of the extensive bi-fold windows without blocking the view of those gathered around the beautiful marble bar. Exposed concrete walls create a contrast to soft leather seating while presenting a matte surface that plays off the polished brass highlights within.

The food is always fantastic. It can get a little noisy/busy and hard to get the attention of the servers. Great drinks too!

Was really nice, but was full of bogans for some reason - weird atmosphere because of that.

The food was amazing but the atmosphere was loud and annoying. I could hardly hear what my boyfriend was saying. All big groups should be put on one side of the restaurant and couples/groups of 3 should be put on the other side.

Nice place to dine with great atmosphere and service. Food was “good” but not exceptional, especially for the prices. Waiter menu knowledge and ability to recommend options needs a lot of work.

The food was great, steaks were cooked perfectly, but the atmosphere was lacking. Staff were efficient but not really friendly.

This restaurant is very nice and the service was outstanding. The main hesitation I have is that the menu is so meat based, but you know that when you go in. The noise level was very high. I felt it was quite expensive, probably due to all the meat. I had fish which was delicious. L

I was looking for a venue for a group of professionals from around Australia for an informal dinner catch up. Marble & Grain was suggested by a friend and proved to be perfect. The staff were attentive and knowledgeable. The ambience is well presented and comfortable with noise levels acceptable for an informal dinner. The menu provided a suitable offering to meet diffing dietary desires and all enjoyed their meals. We had a successful and enjoyable catch up. Give them a try.

My husband and I took our visiting friends from overseas. Initial welcome by the service staff was lovely but the young lady assigned to us really wasn’t adequately trained enough to work - lovely but she told us there was no

Highly recommend! They are definitely the meat experts. My sirloin was cooked to perfection with delicious sides. My family had ribs which they thoroughly enjoyed. Service was perfect. We sat at our table right on time, experts in describing the different meats available. Checked on us as required, not too much. And the bill was reasonable! It is a “must try” if you enjoy meat. Not recommended for vegans!

A request was placed for a quieter location (near window) due to hearing difficulties for our B'day celebration.
This was not honoured or referred to. Noise level was high and our waiter was less than friendly.
Food was very good - the highlight.

Arrived 30min before my reservation and was told that I couldn’t be seated as I was too early.... and they had the table booked until then.... waited near the door, however majority of the two seater tables were empty..... and the table we were seated at had nobody the entire time we waited.

I just feel sory that we did not have more tine to have another beef stake after the excellent lamp shoulder for my family of 4 pax. But I am sure will come for it next time to Canberra. Excellent place!

Our food was good, the waiter was lovely especially considering the childrens playpen he had to deal with in the restaurant. Definitely not fine dining and our experience was ruined by 5 different tables of loud, screaming children pouring drinks and food every where. Very hard to enjoy a nice meal. Expected better atmosphere for the prices. Unfortunately would only recommend this to someone who is okay with being in a restaurant comparable to a McDonalds playground.

I’m always searching for good hearty meats when I eat out. Not only did Marble and Grain serve awesome food but created created curiosity with a food or two. Service was also great, the staff were very attentive, police, and spoke clearly. I loved the restaurant interior, vibe, and decor.

Marble and Grain produced its usual informal, friendly service with good quality food. My only beef (pardon the pun) is that the wine list includes nothing between one cheap wine in each category and plenty of expensive-to-very-expensive wines. Virtually no moderately priced wines to select.

Beautiful food and had a lovely waiter who was attentive. Were sat in the corner of the room which gave us a nice view and kept us away from the noise of people talking. Worst part was how small the portions were as we could've eaten a lot more!

I enjoyed most of the food however, for the price my steak was nice but disappointing, because it was rare and not medium. I think my husband got mine. The sauce excellent however my potatoes were cold. I did not feel like sending my plate back as this dinner had been planned for months!
The air conditioning was too cold, our waiter was to ask for the temperature to be turned up.
After spending just under $600 for 4 of us, this was not value for money.

We came for dinner as my son had just become engaged. Our orders arrived and he had ordered a share steak platter . Wrong order arrived
We had to eat as our food was getting cold. Whilst they sat and waited for awhile. We had all finished when their correct order had arrived. Disappointing as the night was about them. It was my third time there and the meat is always amazing .

Came here for dinner on New Years Eve. We were seated promptly in a corner booth which was lovely. There was a few big parties in the restaurant so it was a bit noisy but nothing too bad. I had the king prawns and my partner had a scotch fillet. Both were superb! Service started off well but dropped off as the night went on. It took about 15 minutes for someone to clear our dinner plates. We shared the dark chocolate tart for dessert which was not too sweet and the perfect way to end the meal!

Location was great, although nearby parking was a lottery. Greeted, welcomed and seated without delay. Beverages and meal courses served timely. Beef meals served as ordered, easy to cut and chew, tasty as served. Ample sides to ensure a filling and satisfying meal in pleasant and relaxed surrounds.
