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.

The only difficulty was with parking. While we were fortunate to find a spot right outside the restaurant we were less than impressed with the fellow who backed his car and ended up scratching my husband's new car and then nicked off without leaving any message. Luckily (or not) we watched this play out from the window inside the restaurant and did get his rego no.

Freezing air conditioning, and a steak and sides we could make at home. Nothing special

Great dining experience, quality of food is excellent and fairly well priced. Food came within 20 mins of placing order for a medium-well done steak and chicken salad.

Green sides were delicious and very generous serving size, the only downside to this experience was the bread as a starter. 9/10

Steak was over cooked, and disappointed we couldn't order from the bar menu after calling ahead and being advised we could even if we were in the restaurant. Wait staff were lovely though and good ambience. Would go back but to the bar side only.

Such a disappointment:( . Such a bad service. They never come to your table if you don’t ask. You have to ask for water, for wine, for dessert, ..,We had to wait slmost half an hour to get the bill. And wait another 10 min. On queue in front of the cassiers desk.

Quiet disappointed as I’ve been to marble and grain a while ago and had a great experience. This time was not the case. We were a table of 2 and seated in area surrounded by large loud tables, which was strange when there were smaller tables which remained free.
Entrees were good, balanced and had nice flavours, but did lack presentation.
For the main I ordered the rib eye steak. It was over cooked, making it tough and dry.
My partner ordered the duck, which was greasy and sauces didn’t compliment the protein.
Drinks were good, and service was also good. So thank you for that.

The T-bone steak was so tough that it was sent back and requested not to be replaced. It was a special so you’d think it would have been the best. The ribs special were also very dry.
Service was appalling. We had to all but jump up and down to get any service. When we were eventually assisted they forgot every time. Sadly. We won’t be back.

The food was beyond amazing. I had high expectations after reading all the reviews and I’m happy to write that I wasn’t disappointed. Don’t worry about the price, put on your favourite elastic waist pants and grab your partner for the most incredible meal I’ve ever had. It’s worth it!! The roast potatoes were better than water in the desert.
Only criticism is that I think it’s important to advise people if your surcharging and at what % rate.
However when you’re eating food this good, in a place this nice, with service so positive, it’s all worth it.

We really enjoyed the modern meets classy steakhouse feel of this place. The 800g rib eye that came with a few sides and red wine jus was deliciously tender and comfortably fed 2. The tempura zucchini flowers entree was crispy and fresh. Pricing is on the higher end but service was friendly and accommodating. Will be back again!

We really enjoyed our dinner at Marble & Grain - the steaks were excellent (we had the beef fillet) and portions were good, and the staff were friendly and professional. The restaurant is close to the CBD abut located on a quiet street which made it great for a relatively quiet family dinner.

Well impressed! I hadn’t been to Marble & Grain since their move to Braddon and the first time I went it was all good (albeit pokey location). But the new premises is awesome and the ambience really good.
The food was exceptional, we did the share plates for entree and main and I’ve got to say it was all delicious and very filling.
Beer was cold and delicious and the service was exceptional.

Way too overpriced. The meat is good quality and cooked well but all the other food was fairly poor and disappointing (ie entree, sides etc) We couldn’t even get some lemon for our oysters.

The service was average as well. Clearly it was just casual staff who don’t have any particular hospitality exerprrience or commitment to the job. For a $350 dinner experience I would have expected a bit more quality service and standard.

Would eat the meat/steak again but certainly not at the price or service we experienced. I don’t think it was worth the expense.

The food was reasonably tasty and portion sizes were good. However the service left a bit to be desired. The waiter sloshed wine into our glasses, down the sides and on the table. At one point I was worried the wine would land on us. And while the waiter left to put the bottle away before taking our orders, she didn't wipe up the mess. We had to ask another waiter to clean things up. At $16 a glass in a restaurant such as this, I don't expect this poor service.

Definitely enjoyed my steak at Marble & Grain. Very good quality beef. Recommend that the menu be adjusted to allow the customer to choose from the available sides. The steak I chose comes normally with potato while others come with onion rings or other sides (all of which are same price). I asked for onion rings instead of potatoes and while my request was accommodated, the server seemed a bit put out and wasn't sure she could allow it when I first asked. Happened once before on a previous visit to this restaurant. Giving the customer the choice improves customer satisfaction which leads to repeat business.

Been to this restaurant many times....this time we had a group that they split into two.....I guess my half ended with the overwhelmed waiter. my steak was over cooked and cold....when I brought it up to the waiter, he took it back to the kitchen and the cook said it was fine and brought it back to the table....I ended up with no dinner and a cold $65 steak.........luckily the rest of my group had a better experience with their food...but after 10 good encounters this one was really poor.
