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.

I don't generally like steak but I love ribs so I ordered the beef ribs. They were really tender and yummy, although a bit too sweet. I did have a taste of my husband's beef steak and it was divine. I have
never liked steak until then and was envious of his meal. Best steak I have ever tasted. The onion rings were also delicious.

Restaurant was quiet But still humming. Monday night always makes a difference to the "feel" of a restaurant
I loved the peace and the service.

Food ... cannot rate the food highly enough. Great produce, well cared for & cooked to perfection.
Staff were friendly, wine list was extensive & matched the food well.

Not a "cheap" place to eat but definitely worth the money!

Had the shared plate for 2 & it would easily have fed 3or 4!

Cheese platter was divine!

I'll definitely be back!

One of the best dining experiences in Canberra. The dishes are simple and straightforward, immaculately presented and all ingredients used are of a very high quality. The decor and ambience are perfect for both intimate occasions and for larger groups with cosy tables for couples and small groups and larger, banquet-style tables for larger parties. Marble & Grain's waitstaff are understated yet highly attentive and efficient, rounding out the whole experience as one you won't forget in a hurry. I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough.

My mother came for a visit, so I wanted her to have good dining. Plus she enjoyed it last time.
Took ages for our steaks to arrive. And when we got the steak my mother's was burnt.
If I found out that the meat was burnt earlier, I would have just left the restaurant.
Really did not want to pay for the meal.
Worst steak experience ever.

The meat was great and juicy and the salads were good. The choice of cutlery was poor - could not cut my steak properly. It was enven worse for the lamb. Can’t put the knives on the side of the plate - they slide off really annoying. The lighting was barely enough for us to see what was in our plate. The steak came on a black plate (seems that it’s the trend now) but it looks black on black - not appetizing. The steak cooking instructions were not followed.
Overall expensive. Not great value for money as I have had better steaks.

Was a nice night with good quality food, however it did get a bit loud (from the noise of the kitchen, other customers and sports broadcasting) and the waitresses should be more attentive. We had to call over a waitress more than once and we weren't the only ones on the night... the menu is a little pricy but it was worth it.

The wine and the entree were great along with the service but the steak (for which Marble and Grain are supposed to be renowned) was tough and chewy. Had a better steak from my local pub for half the price. So disappointing after a good start.

Steak was great. Grill man knows what he’s doing. Medium rare, pink through out with a great crust. Sauces were excellent - bistro versions of classics were a step up from most restaurants. Think Rockpool Bar & Grill.
