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.

Since we moved, we don’t get to LaSalle Grille as often as we used to. We went Friday to celebrate my husband’s birthday, and we were not disappointed! Andrew, TC and Zorn welcomed us like old friends. The food and service was excellent. The evening was delightful! We look forward to our next LaSalle Grille date!

Our party of two was seated near a happy party of 10. We had to ask for a new table. The Caesar salad was absolutely nothing special. The lobster Mac and cheese had to be sent back as it was cold. Steak-their specialty-was excellent.

We have been going to the La Salle Grill for many years. We continue to be struck by the atmosphere, the service, the quality of the food, and the consistency of it all. I suspect that is the result of constant effort to provide a relaxing and high-quality experience.

The best aspect by far, in a very enjoyable evening, was the careful and attentive service of the sommelier.

The food was amazing and there are clearly some talented chefs in the kitchen. However because of poor service, I will think twice about going back. Our waitress was not attentive, for example, she took our silverware right before we were served but never brought a new set back, so we had to flag someone that we needed help. She was also very pushy with her menu recommendations while not answering any of our questions. For the amount we paid I would rather go to a local restaurant that I know has excellent service.

Had a great meal but our server wasn’t the best. Would give an “ok” rating simply due to the service.

Overall the dining experience was good. The restaurant is small and when busy VERY noisy.

The bread in the bread basket must have been microwaved because it became rock-hard after a short period of time. We ordered the seafood appetizer, scallops atop risotto, and both were perfectly cooked. I ordered the crispy duck which was not crispy and was slightly underdone, almost raw. My husband ordered the antelope. It was very good and perfectly cooked. No dessert. They do pour a generous drink so extra points for that. The steaks we saw served at neighboring tables looked great, as did the salmon. Next time I'll go for one of those. Overall review Good.

I took my husband to LaSalle Grill for his birthday. When I made the reservation online, the form asked if it was an occasion, and I selected birthday. They called me that day to ask the name of the birthday person - I thought they might sing the happy birthday song or something. What they did was customize our experience; the menu had his name and the date on it, and a hand-signed card from all the staff was on the table.

We have eaten there before and always thought the food and experience were excellent, but this time was extremely nice.

We were very pleased with everything and particularly Julena. She has served us before and does a very good job. As it became more crowded it became quite noisy. Tables see. To be very close to each other.

Great place best wine list and filet in town. It was hard to have a conversation due to the high level of noise. It also seemed as if they had added tables making it more crowded than our last visit. It was well worth it the service was second to none and the addition of valet parking was a great feature. The only suggestion I would make is to have some sort of dress code that is enforced ......Football jerseys flip flops and cut off shorts can make you think about where you want to spend 300$$for dinner.

The wine dinners are a favorite of ours. This one was a little different in that I have developed some food allergies. I mentioned this on my reservation and the staff and chef didn’t hesitate to modify the predefined menu to accommodate my allergies. The food and service were excellent - as usual.

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.
