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.

Food was beautiful but restaurant was very noisy & service was rushed. Only a few vegetarian options & no bombe Alaska despite being sent an email during the week that the menu had been updated with both

Food good, service poor and staff more worried about ending shift than attending to tables. Not good.

We had a very nice meal at marble and grain on monday night, when many other places are closed. Food was excellent, our waitress attentive and courteous, and prices for food and wine very reasonable. Enjoyed tables not too close and the feeling of spaciousness. Will go there again.

We would dine again, but next time will dress more warmly (even though it is winter and we were warmly dressed). It was so cold in the restaurant that we wore our overcoats at the table, and used our scarves for knee rugs.

My steak was tender, but I asked for medium rare and it really was well done and unfortunately only just warm, my potatoes were almost cold as well.

The staff were friendly and attentive, and the overall ambience was very nice, it's just a shame that is was sooo damn cold in there!

Food was amazing but unfortunately the service was quite a let down. Took far too long for someone to acknowledge we were waiting to be seated and then we were forgotten about to order and I had to get up to call the attention of someone.

The restaurant is quite lovely & the service was excellent. Some menu items are quite expensive. The steaks are amazingly cooked though some items were a let down including the Morton bay bug ‘extra’ & the dessert pudding.

We had sourdough starter (I guess I have a different definition of sourdough) which was good and the scallops in a nice citrus hollandiase and shared the meat platter cooked perfectly. The wine list was solid Aussie but hey, we are in Oz.
The service was engaging and pleasant but very quick. This is not a slow paced restaurant. Hats off to the chefs.

My dish was meant to be gluten free, but i walked out with a severe bloated belly and now my RA is killing me. Not so sure its gluten free, so watch out for that. Other wise ok.

The service was clinically good but without warmth or personality. The sirloin ordered medium rare was overdone. We ordered a side of fries but was not told the steak came with baby potatoes. We would have ordered a different side had we known and hardly touched the fries. Overall a good but barely memorable meal.

The overall meal was wonderful.
My partners steak was all fat and grizzle, could not eat it. It must have been the last end cut, very disappointing, especially the cost of the steak. They did give us dessert on them to compensate.
The wait staff were wonderful, and for the chef to say that the wait staff should have told us that cut should not have been recommended for rare.., really, then do not put it on the menu. My partner has had this cut at other restaurants without an problems

We were really looking forward to this restaurant - love a good steak house.

What you expect / want firstly from a steakhouse is the ability to just cook a good steak to order.

The "medium" steak ordered was WELL done - a quarter of it was so well (over) done it was inedible. The "rare" steak ordered was half rare and half medium - disappointing.
Fail.

On the menu the steaks don't say what comes with them - so we ordered one side of salad, and one side of kipfler potatoes - $20 - when the steaks came the plate included roasted potatoes and a rocket salad - yes, our mistake for not asking the waiter, but he could have told us what came with the steak. The sides then did not get half eaten.

The bottle of wine we ordered was $54 - and it sells in Dan Murphy's for $13.30 a bottle. 400% mark up ? $54 was the second cheapest red wine on the menu.

At $195 for 2, and with the 2 steaks not even close to being cooked to order - not good value at all.
