Contemporary American
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.

This is one of the best restaurants in town. It is high end, so I only dine here for special occasions but it is always fantastic. The food is exquisite and the staff is excellent.

Our server was excellent. Nice beer and wine menu. The food was very bland. May be Midwest cuisine. My daughter had a mediocre Caesar. I had beef noodle soup. I had risotto. She had chicken. No flavor. Chicken was dry.

We had a table of 8 by the door which created a draft at times. This was a paired food/wine dinner. Food good. Wines vary good. Gear evening with couples.

Arrived at 6:45 PM with a 6:45 reservation. Water was finally brought to our table at 7:20. Waiters passing back-and-forth constantly while not one of them bothered to stop and inquire despite our attempts to get some attention. Even after getting water, it was another 12 minutes before anyone would come and take our drink order. The place was crammed full of people. The service was poor. Even after our situation was recognized and the restaurant bought us the first two rounds of drinks plus appetizers and salads with promises that service would be so much better, it wasn’t. Very disappointing. The drinks were top notch. The fish at dinner was very good. The rest of it, not so much and certainly not what you would expect from a AAA four diamond rated restaurant. Unimpressive, lackluster, crowded, and slow.

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.

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!

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.
