European
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.

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.

Classy pub-style food with good drinks selection to accompany, sharing steak plates are great for 2+. Bit cold right under the air con vent and be aware if you take an early booking (6pm) there might be a second seating later..!

Food and wine was first class, however, difficult to hold a conversation when the dining room was full owing to the challenging level of background noise of other diners.

Food very good as always.

Service terrible, for example long long delays in finding a waiter (a lot there but not all of them working); had to get up and ask for menus etc; main plates never cleared and still on table for dessert; very minor issue with eftpos but waiter very rude.

We have been here often for a nice meal, pricey but food and service always good. Based on this experience we won’t be back.

The only thing I can really fault about my experience was that both myself and one of my guests both ordered a side of greens. The side would have been enough for two people yet there was no suggestion to only get one to share. I know it's not in your interest to down size an order but there the little things from a customer service aspect that would set you apart.
I loved the industrial style and like the idea of having both a more casual bar setting as well as the table dinning. It was a bucket list restaurant for me before I move from Canberra and it certainly did not disappoint. The Tenderloin was just perfect and the blue cheese sauce was fantastic.

I had the Wagyu beef. I assumed this would be melt in the mouth, unfortunately it wasn't. For $65 I was disappointed.
Having to pay for $9 for cheap greens (beans, snow peas, zucchini) was also disappointing.
I gave my duck fat potato to my date as pretty tasteless.
The chocolate mousse was hard and more like caramel. Tasted weird.
The strawberry bomb Alaska was amazing and I loved it.
I recommend this restaurant, but I doubt whether I'll go back.
Good for a date I suppose.

The food was very high quality. The steak delicious as was the lamb shoulder. The share plates are great.
The service let the restaurant down. Very slow to be served and get the first drinks. Not attentive, though was friendly when we could get someone.
The coffee machine was turned off before closing so couldn’t get a coffee after dinner.
Overall a good place, for the price I would expect much better service.

Food was nice. All four steaks were done to order with no issues.

Service was a wee bit slow and the single glass pour was a little light-3 oz at best.
