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.

    I haven't been to LaSalle Grill in a number of years, but will definitely be coming back soon. The food was great and prices were reasonable. Casey, the manager, was awesome and welcoming as was our waiter who's name I unfortunately do not remember. Great food, great drinks, great ambiance; I won't let multiple years pass before visiting again.

    The service was very attentive and helpful. The wine steward helped us pick an excellent bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon (side note: Tuesday nights are 1/2 price for bottles of wine up to $150.00, so we decided to upgrade our original selection). All of the food, from appetizers, through entrees, to dessert were delicious, no disappointments at all. The menu was a bit limited, but everything was very tasty. The steaks, in particular, were excellent.

    Dined at LaSalle Grill with three friends last night. It was, as usual, an outstanding experience! Kudos to our server, Tia, who went out of her way to provide service over and above what might be expected. We enjoyed her smile, warm manner, and prompt responses. Kudos, also, to manager, Casey, who made sure to stop by our table to make sure all was going splendidly. We thank Chef Brad for his ongoing creativity and smiling face in the kitchen. The pepita sauce on the chicken was brilliant! I love everything and everyone at this restaurant. Thanks, LaSalle Grill, for more than 30 years of making downtown South Bend a destination for the finest food and hospitality!

    Six of us celebrated an 84th birthday. The staff was great - they did a special menu wishing for a happy birthday celebration and all signed a card. Our food was delicious. Several of us had the salmon, two had the filet, and the birthday boy had the rack of lamb. The accompanying wines were very good as were our desserts - lava cake and affagato. We love celebrating birthdays when we are here for Notre Dame football games. We will be back again for sure.

    LaSalle Grill has been a favorite for years. In the past year we have experienced even more attention to the details we look for in a dining experience. From the greeting to leaving the entire staff is engaged and positive. The classic dishes are never disappointing and there is always something new on the menu to challenge us. Casey has been terrific with a broad knowledge of not only wine but spirits and beer.

    They don’t chill their red wines and they poured a 2nd glass from the bottle into existing glass that wasn’t empty but only to same level as first glass - so essentially paying more for less wine. Stuck in corner table when restaurant wasn’t full. Has been clearly strained by staffing/service issues.

    LaSalle GrillResponded on August 17, 2022Hello! You are correct, we do not chill our house red wines. We do chill all of our wine list bottles! We have an extensive list of wines to choose from, I hope you will peruse the list next visit. Additionally, we source house wines we know will be consistent from bottle to bottle. If you prefer a new glass every pour, please just ask your server. Im sorry you didn't enjoy your table. Please let us know next time if you'd prefer a different one. We are fully staffed and hope to see you soon!

    LaSalle GrillResponded on August 17, 2022Thanks for your feedback! We offer a full side of mushrooms for a larger portion than the steak topping, in case you would like to order that next visit! We hope to see you again soon.

    We had an early reservation for dinner for two. It was my wife's birthday. We were early but our table was ready and we sat down 10 minutes earlier than our reservation. Everything was very clean and the staff were very nice, they even had a signed birthday card for my wife at the table. The menu looked great and we both had the Filet Mignon with salad and dessert. The salads came quickly but the entre took a while to arrive. The dessert took even longer to arrive but was delicious. So, everything was great except for the long waits for the entree and dessert.

    LaSalle GrillResponded on August 17, 2022Thank you for your feedback! I will be sure to discuss with your server and the kitchen so that we can fix whatever may have happened with the timing for your meal. We hope to see you again soon and strive for a 5 star experience on that visit!

    This was a great night out for us. Comments on the specific dishes, the foie gras needed a bit more acid and some sort of crisp bread. The blue corn polenta was not seasoned and goopy. However, wine was amazing (and wine options by the glass were excellent and the by bottle list was also excellent), crab cakes amazing, steak amazing, grilled fish - amazing. the deserts were fantastic and my espresso martini was fabulous. Our waiter was so helpful. Overall this was a great night.
