About Marble & Grain
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.

Marble & Grain Ratings and Reviews
Overall the dining experience was good with our interstate guests, however, we were disappointed to be greeted at the door (without a smile) and only to be informed of the T&C's we accepted online and that we only had 2 hours at the table.
Due to the 2 hour limit we felt rushed and when the time came we were asked to relocate to the bar area.
The bar area was cold and doesn't have table service. Upon looking around after we were moved, we noticed multiple tables vacant and available.
Leather and bare-walled steakhouse with open kitchen so you can eat surrounded by flames and hanging aging cuts. Servings are generous, especially the potatoes, if a little pricey. Side salads were small, though fresh. Steaks were not precisely done to medium and medium rare, which is disappointing for a steakhouse, but forgivable in the light of the pepper sauce.
Go for the oysters followed by the beef fillets. The SA oysters were fresh with a hint of salt and brine. The fillets were tender and cooked to perfection. For those who did not have beef, the salmon was excellent. The Henschke Shiraz blend wine was splendid. The restaurant has a nice ambiance with moderate noise level; it did not impede our group from good conversation and a good time had by all. This place is worth the trip.
Food Was great as always. However the service was not the best, at first we received another tables food and when we received the drinks the lady who delivered them was extremely rude, she had a bland expression on her face and she slammed the drinks on the table slipping the drinks and walked away.
Love the food, but the service needs to be worked on
Food was pleasant. Service was poor, the staff were not attentive though the restaurant wasn't busy. The menu cards need to be reprinted, too old.
I made a request upon booking that we were there to celebrate a birthday but the request was not met.
The ambience of the restaurant felt like a food court.
Tried once cos of good recommendations but won't go again.
My family and I dined at Marble and Grain for Fathers' Day lunch and could not fault the food or the service. Days like these are tricky and while we have been in Canberra we have rarely found a restaurant that has risen to the occasion so brilliantly - great food, friendly service and absolute value for money. We will definitely be back with our Adelaide friends and family when they visit. Best organised and executed special day celebrations we have experienced in the Can. Well done all!
Booked for my 30th birthday dinner, the staff were wonderful even with last minute number changes.
The menu had the perfect number of choices, not too many but not too little.
The food was PERFECTLY cooked. Our table ordered the 1.2kg lamb shoulder and the meat board and they even swapped out things for us.
They were wonderful with bringing out the cake and served with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream, then happily kept it until the following morning to make it easier for us.
We were promptly shown to our table for two along the back wall. Were provided with tap water and had our drinks order attended to straight away. Our food order was from the specials board and arrived after a short time. Presentation of food was great as was the quality of the ingredients. Our plates were cleared, water refreshed, and soon after our desserts arrived. When we required extra cutlery, it was quickly fetched. Service was good with some very minor exceptions. A quality meal.
A great venue for meeting friends and family. Good, friendly, knowledgeable, polite staff.
Even though I had mentioned in my booking that one person was gluten free, there was no attention to this by the staff ..... in fact, the gluten free meal (salmon) had run out!!!
Service and ambience were fine, unfortunately 3 out of our 4 steaks were overlooked. I ordered the beef fillet medium rare and it was cooked through and dry. I wouldn't go there again to eat steak.
My partner had the barramundi and she rated it very highly. Tender and beautiful.
Unfortunately for a restaurant that prides itself on its steak dinners it was a major disappointment. I couldn't recommend it to friends and family.
I think the steak was cooked using molecular gastronomy techniques. I would have much preferred the taste resulting from an old fashioned charcoal grill. This establishment could provide patrons the option, explaining the difference between the two methods.
Fixed menu for Mother"s day lunch, was well constructed and better than I would have hoped for. The food was well presented and cooked perfectly, my only comment is that along with many Australian restaurants the portion sizes were too large.
There was more meat on my lamb that I would normally eat for three meals.
Service good and friendly the staff were efficient but busy
It was a very good experience but I felt that the pricing was probably 20% too high.
Overall an above average dining experience. Wait staff were a little to keen to push each stage of the meal through (asking for us to order only a few minutes after we sat down) but on the other hand it was pleasing they were so attentive. Overall, friendly staff, good food and reasonable prices compared to the quality.
