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.

Hogsbreath is better and cheaper, service was slow with the exception of one hostess. Food not worth the money

First-time visitor to the restaurant with family and I found it to be very good. Our food was cooked to perfection, drinks lists had plenty of variety at average pricing compared to other venues. Nice ambiance to the restaurant and overall a very good experience.

Went here for our 5 yr anniversary. Was more than I expected. I throughly enjoyed my experience here. Will definitely be back to try something else on the menu. I was so happy with the share plates they had to offer and the creme burlee was to die for.

Great venue for lunch - many AMSA staff from 82 Northbourne Avenue eat there, and appreciate the food and service. Would always choose Marble & Grain as first choice for visitors to go for lunch.
My lunch meeting 1 February was terrific. Great food, great service, and we were able to linger at the table after the meal was finished, without waiting staff trying to hussel us out of the restaurant.

The wait staff were exceptional, however we found the food not the best. We had the butcher board and the steak was grisly the lamb ribs were extremely fatty. I don’t think we will be returning.

For a special Sunday lunch, the Marble & Grain was an excellent choice.

The meal was exceptional and while the place was very quiet, the staff were attentive and in excellent spirit.

If you like a good steak, this is the place to go.

The food was well portioned and prepared in accordance with my requests. The presentation of the dishes was akin to a well decorated cake, with each element of the dish appetising to the eyes in their own right and as a whole dish. The chefs deliver a seemingly simple dish in a way that only those that truly appreciate food will understand is difficult to deliver to perfection.
The service of the bar and waiting staff was superb, particularly Nick at the bar and Julio my waiter for the evening

Second visit, unfortunately underwhelming. The wait staff did not correctly take out order, bringing the wrong dish for entree and forgetting one of the mains entirely. Wait staff poured tap water in to a half full glass of sparkling; that is not in itself a problem, mistakes happen, but the follow on question by the waiter if they had to replace the glass was perplexing. The experience did not live up to the price tag at all.

Hands down without a doubt the best steak house in Canberra, the steak I had cost $62 but I would gladly pay that again and again for the excellent quality of food.
The steak was cooked to perfection it was tender, juicy and melted in my mouth. Marble and grain is definitely a place that I would take anyone to show them how amazing Canberra is

Was recommended here for Canberra's best steak - they have their own farm where the meat comes from.

Shared the entree platter consisting of gozleme, arancini & zucchini flowers - everything was flavoursome and well executed.

I was blown away by the flavour of my pasture-fed scotch fillet however steak was cooked rarer than the medium which I asked for.

Another let down was the steak knife - I had 3 brought out for good measure but all were not up to the job of breaking down a fairly average width piece of steak.

Will come back, but with my own steak knife.

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.
