We are open from 7am - 10pm everyday. Indoor and outdoor dining spaces available with heating. We look forward to welcoming you again!


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.

Despite wonderful service and ambiance and the fact we were at a 7pm sitting, the oysters I’d been looking forward to had run out and my pork belly porchetta was very dry with soft chewy crackling. The test of my party enjoyed their meals. Would have liked to see more local wines on the menu. Desserts were too heavy and a bit of an afterthought Just over $600 for party of 5.

Overall a great dining experience, the service was great and food was tasty and well cooked.

Great atmosphere, but quite enough to comfortably hold a conversation with the whole table.

Magnificent food and service. Would be nice to tell late diners though before the kitchen is closed to desserts and before coffee machine is taken off line...

We had friends from Bowral with us and we all enjoyed the evening. We were very happy to hear that our table had not been booked for the next time frame so were able to stay at our table for the whole evening. The food was really good and the service was excellent. Thank you Marble and Grain.

The staff where very accommodating!
We brought some cookies that they heated up for us to have with ice cream at the end of the meal. And where all over very patient with us too.

The place is a little tired. Its sort of a cross between an American Diner and the Kingo. Service sort of struggled with the basics. The steak was pretty good but I could not get excited about going back given the other options in Canberra.

All good was very high quality, fresh and tasty, but not necessarily distinct from any other high end steak restaurant. It is a place for good food and relaxed conversation, the servings were more than expected, and the wait staff were friendly and talkative as a opposed to robotic and disinterested. The experience was good, as well as expensive.

Celebrating a special occasion, but last night was a dissapointing experience. We had oysters kilpatrick and they were cold when brought to our table. I had grilled lobster with my steak which was overcooked and dried out. The wait staff were fantastic re service, however, they were understaffed and we had to request drinks. We have been here a few times previously, and thoroughly enjoyed our experience, but last night was very disappointing.

Had no problem booking in for a Wednesday night meal with my father. Service was quick, food was excellent and the price very reasonable. I would definitely recommend a visit to Marble and Grain if visiting Canberra to my friends and family.

Excellent restaurant, pity there aren't many other quality Steak Houses to compete.
The steak as normal was 1st class and the wine list is extensive.
The staff are super friendly and competent in their job.
The ambience is a Steakhouse and you should remember this.

Food was great - delicious beef dishes and the Canadian scallops were amazing. Cocktail drinks were just ok - a simple google of the drinks would’ve helped avoid mistakes. Ambiance needs lifting - maybe a fire in the middle of the very basic dining room or candles...? Overall recommended.

A wonderful experience for my daughters 13th birthday. Amazing food and friendly and attentive service. We had the baby calamari with squid ink aioli, pork belly porchetta and moreton bay bug spaghettini. All absolutely delicious!

We shared the Tbone steak which was really nice despite being marginally underdone. The waitress had warned us in advance that was how they cooked it. The steak was tasty and flavorful. It came with a rocket salad, chips, jus and mustards if required. Really good meal and we will go back next time we are visiting Canberra

The scotch fillet is without doubt the best steak I’ve had in Canberra. Good wines by the glass, too, and the kids loved the ribs and risotto. Lovely smoky grilled flavour on steak and veg.

Marble and Grain is a great place for a quiet business dinner or something that actually requires you to hear the other people at your table. Loved the ambience and the staff who went out of their way to make us feel at home. I'd highly recommend it.

One of the best steakhouses my Mrs and I have ever had! The Ribeye and Sirloin were cooked to perfect the arancini balls was an amazing entree!

Spent 1 night in Canberra and this was the restaurant I chose for dinner, based on the reviews and the menu.
I had the scotch fillet and my partner had the pork ribs.. Hands down the best steak I have ever had and the pork literally fell off the ribs!!
I’d come back to Canberra just to eat here again :)
