LaSalle Grill, a fine-dining restaurant and steakhouse, 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.

The service was really great. We used to dine here long ago before going to plays in South Bend. We had steaks and they were done just the way we like medium rare. The food was great and so was the presentation.

Crab cakes were delicious. Husband had the lamb chops. Generous portion and cooked perfectly. I had the filet and it was excellent. Server lacked personality but otherwise a great anniversary dinner.

We very much enjoyed LaSalle Grill as we always do for special occasions. This time we got extra lucky to be going during Downtown Dive-Out South Bend. The special menu with 3 courses for one price is an excellent way to try new restaurants or new offerings at favorite restaurants AND help a good cause!

I took my parents here on a recent trip to visit them. I'd recalled LaSalle Grill to be a top restaurant from when I lived in the area, many years ago, and it has maintained its exceptionalism. Excellent food, service, wine list, and ambiance.

Restaurant called me the day before to customize the menu to our occasion, always a pleasant surprise. Ambiance was great. Food was disappointing, definitely not as good as we remembered. One of our party ordered a medium steak, and was served medium rare. The aide we ordered (cream spinach) came late and was not cream, mostly dry. Ordered two deserts and they did not come out together.

LaSalle is one of our very restaurants! We are so lucky to have a restaurant of this caliber so close to home (we live 35 mins away). The food is consistently amazing, the service is always on point and the ambiance is similar to those upscale restaurants in larger cities like Chicago and Indianapolis. Always a fabulous experience!

One the best restaurants in South Bend. We always include LaSalle on our trips back to SB. The food is consistently well prepared and they may have the best dressed salads ever. Highly recommended.

I was out of town on business with my husband and we were supposed to be back home for his birthday. Unfortunately we needed to extend our trip to South Bend by 1 day, causing us to be there for his 65th birthday. I wanted this to be a special birthday celebration but did not know where in South Bend to go. Luckily I found LaSalle Grille, which was well located and looked like it would be a nice place to celebrate. I made a reservation just one night before. I was happy that the restaurant called me to confirm the reservation, and asked me for the name of the birthday celebrant. When we arrived at the restaurant there was a birthday card wishing John a Happy Birthday and Thanking Him for Celebrating with them. It was signed by EVERYONE a the restaurant, even the chef, servers and busboys. And they had printed out the evening's specials with a version "Happy Birthday John, Wednesday March 27th, 2019" What a wonderful and inviting entry! My husband loves duck and the special that evening had duck prepared in a manner that would not have been to his liking. Our server suggested a different sauce which apparently the chef has made before. My husband ended up having a perfect birthday celebration, one that neither of us had expected. The food was delicious, the service attentive, and the ambiance wonderful. Thank you LaSalle Grille for making a 65th birthday special to a pair of out-of towners.

It was a delightful dinner. The valet parking was very convenient. Our waiter was attentive, friendly and concerned with our schedule, without being over-bearing or overly familiar. Although the restaurant was full, the food was served in a timely manner and the noise level was not too high.
