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.

Fall wine dinner featured excellent food and wine. Pumpkin bisque served very warm and full of pumpkin flavor with just the right amount of spice. Kale salad very fresh and just right amount of dressing. Pork loin expertly seasoned and pork very tender. Cheese plate out of this world good. Apple desert fit in perfectly with fall theme. Only grip is wine limited to single glass and all of the wines deserved more than just a glass.

The food and the service was outstanding. With it being my anniversary it would’ve been nice if we were not by the kitchen.

My husband and I came to LaSalle Grill for our anniversary, and it completely exceeded our expectations. It had been a long time since we've been here. The food was INCREDIBLE, the service was OUTSTANDING, and the ambiance was comfortable, not too dark or light. We HIGHLY recommend it, and will definitely be back soon!

As we were celebrating our anniversary, the LaSalle did not disappoint! The entire experience was wonderful! Fabulous cocktails, wine and food! Service was top notch! We would not consider visiting South Bend and NOT dining here! Highly recommended! Thank you for making our night so special!

I would enthusiastically recommend this restaurant. We were late for our reservation, and called ahead -- the staff was very accommodating in fitting us in on a busy Saturday night. We enjoyed the lovely ambiance, great service, and delicious food. We will be back!

LaSalle Grill was a huge disappointment when we dined there last night. The food was overall cold, the steak was not cooked to specification (my guest asked for medium and it was blue rare) and my salmon was grossly undercooked (it looked more like sushi). And to aggravate matters, the red wine we ordered was not served at the right temperature (it was too warm). This restaurant is highly over-rated. We do not plan on going back.

I can't begin to describe how amazing the service and food were at LaSalle Grill! Gabrielle our server was AMAZING! She suggested some
Amazing appetizers, the Tuna and Crab Dip! The flavor combination of the Tuna was perfection! And as always the New York Strip Au Poivre was cooked perfectly and the flavor!!!! Casey's wine selections paired perfectly!

The food and service were great as always. But this was a Tuesday night business dinner (interview a job candidate) and the restaurant was very noisy and it was difficult to hear guests seated across the table. Next time we will ask for a quieter location in the restaurant.

The wine was excellent - the waiter was great - the food was very much under par . I had heard a lot about this restaurant and was not impressed at all.. ordered the French onion soup which tasted like a sweet cream not at all what it supposed to taste like. Ordered filet mignon (x2) which was not done correct and sent back . The black pepper sauce was unacceptable. First it didn’t taste like a pepper sauce because it hardly had pepper in it .. second it was a split sauce that they sent out almost like a jelly paste ... disgusting . I can’t believe the chef let that out of the kitchen . Then ordered Brussel sprouts which came out with buffalo sauce and blue cheese ( which was not stated in the menu) they redid them with out it and it tasted like they were sautéed in vinegar - ugh ... the bread pudding dessert was amazing .. so that left my palate slightly less abused . Overall don’t waste your time . Go upstairs to their bar and eat a burger - way better ..

Went there to celebrate a birthday - the staff kinda forgot - even after a phone call to verify why we were there. So instead we were greeted with "Happy Anniversary", so glad this wasn't our first date. They didn't send out the cute Happy Birthday plate like in the pictures, or was it just us? hmmm The service was okay. They tend to favor the regular guests and the ones I am assuming to be upper echelon versus my hard earned money. Out of 4 courses, the Seabass was amazing and so was the cheesecake. Not bad, just not what I expected for the money we paid - we pay like everyone else plus over and beyond a standard tip.

We had a lovely birthday dinner. The staff made it special by customizing our menus with a birthday greeting for my dining partner. And our food was delicious. We had the seafood platter with lots of lump crabmeat, lobster chunks, huge shrimp, and a king crab claw split and made very easy to access the meat in it. We also had the La Salle green salad and for dessert, the bread pudding, hot with lots of vanilla ice cream. The service was incredible. We also lucked out with being there on a Tuesday for 1/2-priced bottles of wine. Can't wait to come back!

Serviced sucked, Very very disappointed. we had waitress stacey . I only received one wine glass for our anniversary dinner. Wife’s wine was wrong. Wife ordered white wine not red. The waitress messed up our steak order. the side dish came out after the steaks. I understand last night was busy but waitress came to our table only three times. horrible anniversary experience.

We attended the Oregon wine dinner. Everything was perfect. Each wine was presented and explained with each course. Hard to choose a favorite course since all were delicious. Maybe the bison was the best.

Oregon wine dinner quite a culinary experience. Food expertly paired with wines and service outstanding. While a bit pricy for South Bend worth the $$.
