About Marble & Grain

View larger map

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.

We have visited this restaurant on several occasions and it has hosted us for both NYE 2015 and NYE 2016 and on both occasions we have had an excellent evening, with great food and great service.

It is not a cheap restaurant but you do get what you pay for :)

Very pleased with the attentive service. Food was well presented. The restaurant lacks atmosphere, and is too expensive. I would recommend it, but there are few people I know who could afford it. Stick with the tap water, as the sparkling water is very expensive.

·Dined on 12 November 2016

Had a catch up with friends and birthday lunch at marble and grain yesterday. Very pleased with the $15 lunch special (crazy value for a weekend!) we all commented the food was beautiful and generously portioned, waitstaff were attentive without being intrusive (a smile would have made the experience better, given there was no one else in the restaurant!) and the place was clean and inviting. Will definitely be back for the $15 special, hoping kids will also be warmly welcomed. Highly recommend.

·Dined on 5 November 2016

Food was fantastic (all courses and sides included), wine was great, service could have been better but we did have a late sitting so that might explain why it wasn't the best, bar couldn't make a Caprioska which was a little disappointing with such an extensive drinks menu, I was sitting under an A/C vent that was blowing a gale on me which was rather unpleasant but all in all, would definitely recommend.

·Dined on 22 October 2016

Disappointing. Hatchet-faced front of house "welcomer" did not look up from her computer as we stood and waited by her desk. Service and food good but not exceptional. Zucchini flowers very nice, good wine list, but crying babies and the noise of the fan-extractor from the open plan kitchen ruined any chance of an intimate chat - couldn't even hear the music. Good steaks and venison - good generous serves - but didn't have room for dessert. Good but not great.

When I informed Marble & Grain it was my partner's birthday, they went out of their way to put us at a wonderful table and shouted us both a glass of sparkling...unexpected and absolutely wonderful. My partner had the Wagu Sirloin, the best steak he has had in years and would definitely go back. I had the Warm Chicken Salad and it was extremely tasty and exciting. Thank you Marble & Grain for an unforgettable awesome experience.

·Dined on 20 June 2016

Chose the T-bone special, as did several of my colleagues, and while the steak was great, it was served on a cold plate, which is sinful for a large, rare red meat. It must be served on a hot plate so it is not cold by the time one gets to the bone. My colleagues were I satisfied with the cutlery - small, blunt and cheap knives.

We celebrated my twins' 23rd birthday dinner and had a great time. All of us enjoyed the food - my carnivore son enjoyed his steak and his vegetarian twin sister enjoyed the gnocchi.

Service was good with helpful staff.

Only down side was I felt a cold draft around my ankles all night - possibly a result of us sitting near the kitchen entrance (which is appropriately designed so we didn't actually hear any kitchen noise!)
