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.

Food was great although took a fair while to come out especially between entree and main,( our entree plates were sitting in front of us for about 25-30 minutes before they were cleared)which I would of assumed would of been slightly faster considering the 8pm reservation. Waitress was really nice but maybe just had too many tables to look after to give the attention that was required. I think what ruined it was when we were on our way to leave and pay a male waiter needed to get past in a hurry it would seem and told me to “move” not fab but just feedback for the future.

We had dinner with our kids and the food was excellent especially the steak
The attentive service with a smile was refreshing.
My wife and I talked about the service the next morning and just how impressed we were overall

The food was incredible but let down by the service. Our drinks were forgotten and our starter never came. We were sat by the door which was cold, so we kept our jackets on which made us slightly uncomfortable throughout.

It is very convenient to hotel. Food was delicious and well presented. Good choice of wines. Service good. However on both nights noise level became much too high for those wanting a peaceful meal and conversation.

From the moment we entered, my girlfriend & I were made to feel welcome, from not only by your door staff but also out waitress, who went above & beyond to help make our experience something special. I only wish I caught her name to give her the credit she deserves. We’ll definitely make the trip down again ( from Sydney ) to enjoy your great food & atmosphere.
Thank you all.

So sad. I have eaten here before and really enjoyed the food and the night. This time arrived at 8pm finally received our meal at 8.55pm. Two rare steaks, greens & potatoes, nothing complicated. Didn’t need to order potatoes as they came with the steak anyway!! The staff were busy setting up for breakfast the next morning & the kitchen staff chatting & gossiping. We would have eaten earlier but it was booked out. Not sure how as it was only half full and almost no one in the bar. Could not recommend. When we said it was a long time to wait the young male waiter condescendingly told us it took a long time to cook a rare steak. Definitely won’t go back

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.

We had the 800grame aged t bone, a bit disappointing with the size, it was cold when we received it, the butter was hard block on the top, the air con made the rest of our meal very cold by the time we finished the meal , we mentioned this to the waiter, he said yeah they no its an issue, no offer to move us or accommodate the issue at all.

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
