Great steak with good GF options

Took my parents here as they love a good steak. The response was “one of the best steaks I’ve ever eaten.

As a coeliac and non steak eater eating out can sometimes be a challenge. Hats off to the chefs who easily cater for these things with a variety of creative/tasty options. A good chef can always think outside the square and think of great things to cook. THANK YOU. Parents are so happy with it they want to go two nights in a row.

Highly recommend for great food and good service.

Marble and Grain at the Avenue Hotel

"Full buffet breakfast in the restuarant each day of our stay at the Avenue Hotel was excellent. Food was great and freshly replenished regularly. Good value for money."

The Food and Service was Excellent

We had a wonderful night last Saturday, everything went smoothly, the food and service was excellent, everyone commented on how nice the venue was.

The waiter on that night was most obliging and very friendly.

We will definitely keep the venue in mind for any future events.

Thank you again 

Would Highly Recommend

Just a quick note to say thank you to you and the team for such a wonderful night for Matt’s 50 th   last night – the food, ambience and service were top notch!

Would highly recommend Marble and Grain to others.

Nothing But High Praise

I just wanted to pass on my thanks in writing to you and your team for your efforts in catering for the Seminar. All the feedback I have received so far had nothing but high praise for the quality of food and service provided, which went a long way to making the Seminar as successful as it was.

... your efforts in catering for the Seminar were very much appreciated. Please pass on our thanks to the rest of your staff...

Food was Utterly Mouth Watering 

We just wanted to say that our evening was absolutely fantastic last night. We could not fault anything. The room looked spectacular with the fairy lights all ablaze and the staff were so friendly and efficient. The food was utterly mouth watering and to such a high standard. We had so much positive feedback from our guests. I have posted a review on trip advisor already. Thank you so much, we had the best night.


I love the Excellent Staff Service  

I love coming to your restaurant, I am a vegetarian and I have been regularly visiting. I have attended a champagne master class as well... 

So why would I select to eat at a predominantly meat serving restaurant so often?  

It's the service. 

I love the excellent staff service. 

I never ever had a less than excellent service experience each time I come to visit. 

Yes the food is very good (the chef flash fried capers for my last meal - I must steal that) and oh my lord the smoked butter!!! -  but what drives me coming back is the staff experience. It's the best in Canberra, and probably one of the best in all the cities I worked and lived in, Melbourne and Sydney included.   

Thank you for allowing me to provide some feedback! 

Sheer Perfection!

"I lived in New York City for many years, and had many wonderful meals.  However, our dinner last night at your restaurant surpassed them all. Sheer perfection!  Bravo to the entire team!"

Best Steaks in Canberra

We come to Marble & Grain on regular basis and always have steaks .. think they are the best steaks in Canberra ..  

Latest visit was as good as usual .. and the complimentary bone marrow was greatly appreciated.


The Steak was Perfection

I had dinner with some friends at M&G last Thursday and this was the first time I had eaten there at night - I had lunch once before.

We were thoroughly impressed with the food. The steak was perfection and onion rings were delicious. One of us had the brisket and she said it was beautiful. 

The staff were so efficient and polite and were particularly understanding when two of our party didn't turn up due to illness. Boy did they miss out!!



Best Restaurant in Canberra

Amazingly clean hotel. Very pleasant staff. Best restaurant in Canberra within the hotel. It's refered to as a European steak house, but their range is far beyond this title, exceptional food, PADDOCK TO PLATE beef, for real. You could probably get the name of your steak it's such a closed loop, amazing. 30km from farm to chef, that's gotta be one of the closest I've ever seen, unless you put a restaurant on the farm, I don't see it ever getting shorter distance. I'm not sure how many canberra hotels are 5 star, but this is my first Australian one.


Fantastic Service

Yet another great meal with fantastic service at Marble and Grain. We look forward to dining there again soon.


The Food Devine

Such a lovely atmosphere. Not only was the food devine, but the service and the attention to detail was outstanding. Music choice was on point with some light jazz vibes, and the decor gave a fancy yet comfortable feeling. Would definitely recommend!
