LaSalle Grill, a modern American Bistro featuring steaks and chops cooked over a live hardwood fire, is born of the dream of experienced restaurateur Mark McDonnell. Like the restaurant’s namesake, noted French explorer, Robert de LaSalle, McDonnell set out to explore the uncharted waters of downtown South Bend, Indiana. In April of 1991, McDonnell opened a lively and exciting restaurant unlike any other in the area - LaSalle Grill.

LaSalle Grill is committed to providing guests with excellent service, great atmosphere, an award-winning wine list and, most importantly, delicious cuisine that is artfully and dramatically presented.

The Grill has been presented with the coveted AAA Four Diamond Award every year since 1996.

Set out to explore the art of fine dining usually found only in major metropolitan cities, visit LaSalle Grill.

    Great restaurant in declining South Bend. Had a very warm welcome upon arrival. The food is great but pricey although Cesar salad was a complete disaster. Other than greens, croutons and some cheese shavings there was nothing else. If you can't make a good Cesar salad you shouldn't be in this business. Julienne was great with service with convincing upselling skills. Watch that man as you can end up buying his car too before you leave the restaurant. Overall great restaurant with some really good food. Ideal for special occasions, date nights or business meetings...

    My guest, and I, who was visiting from Saint Petersburg, FL, had a wonderful experience and evening. While I was disappointed that you were not serving sea bass that evening, the fresh fish from Turkey, which name I cannot remember, was excellent. My only disappointment was the absence of other diners that evening. I am sure that this is a challenge for The LaSalle Grille, but I always feel that a crowded restaurant is an endorsement of an excellent restaurant.

My friend and host Jeff commented several times, "we know the food and beverages are going to be excellent!" Consistent excellence has been true from the time that LaSalle Grill opened; I always look forward to dining there when I visit South Bend! Thank you!

    We visit South Bend a few times a year and we always make a point of eating here. On our last visit, we dined there two nights in a row. Casey, the sommelier, is amazing. He always suggest the best wine for the price. The food is good and the service is wonderful. Highly recommend.

    Overall our experience was great. There were a few minor inconveniences, like not receiving a napkin, and not getting a fork when served my salad. But the overall service and food quality made up for those mishaps. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone I know, and will be back when we visit in the future.

    I dined alone, so I kept it simple - filet and Caesar salad. Caesar salad was disappointing - nothing more than I might have gotten at Longhorn or Texas Roadhouse. A scattering of Romaine lettuce, some Parmesan peels and unremarkable croutons, along with a smattering of dressing. Not much value for $10. The filet, on the other hand, was cooked as I ordered it (medium well), with a nice garnish of roasted potatoes, roasted carrots and carmelized onions. Service was attentive without being overbearing. By far the best part of the experience was the ambience - very classy, with a pleasant buzz from the other diners and waiters and waitresses scurrying from table to table. Truly a nice dining experience.

    Picked this place to take a great customer out to an annual dinner. It did not disappoint. Filet was fabulous, salads fresh, Shrimp Cocktail and Quail for starters. Quail seems too small for the price of $25, but all other pricing was as expected. I would revisit.

    We went for my wife's Birthday. She had a Birthday card on the table when we arrived. The staff was both efficient and cordial. I had the Porkchop which was wonderful, my wife had the Filet Mignon which was cooked medium, not medium-rare like ordered. It was good though. I ordered a Rusty Nail for a cocktail, which was well made, most restaurants do a poor job with this cocktail.

    Excellent food, outstanding wines, and wonderful service are all apart of dining at the La Salle Grill. We have dined there for many years and always had fine meals. Using fresh and high- quality ingredients, the meals are always carefully prepared and delicious. We particularly enjoy the wine dinners with the pairing of foods. La Salle Grill is always a great choice!

    Loved this restaurant. Food and service were outstanding. Great and deep wine list, with lots of selections for both old and new world (although probably 70% new world). Only negative was the lighting. As it got darker outside the lighting was too bright. Otherwise this was truly exceptional.
