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.

Excellent Steak and Lobster Mac & Cheese. The Easter menu was limited and did not include any upscale chicken items for those who don't like steak. Overall the Lasalle Grill is a great place to dine.

We were there for a birthday dinner. Everything was very nice. Our waitress was very helpful, funny and very attentive. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Enjoyed the wine selection, too. We haven't been out to eat since the start of COVID. It was a great start and we will be coming back soon. Thanks very much.

We were very disappointed that the tables were so close together. Three of us got the Lobster and filet. The lobster was quite chewy and disappointing. The filets were good. The scallops and shrimp cocktail were excellent.

No doubt one of the classiest restaurants in northern Indiana, south Michigan. The wait staff is friendly without being smothering. They know their product and how to best serve it. The entrees and sides are unique without being bizarre. Each layer of flavor comes through to enjoy. Try not to sit in dining room center. By the window or the west wall the noise level is tolerable.

Excellent food and service. We went on a Tempur Tuesday and got to enjoy a few of those dishes in addition to a steak, which was really good. Service was outstanding. It was my wife's birthday and they made it special.

The Website shows a "Date Night" special on Fridays for Filet Mignon and Lobster tail dinner for 2 including salad and dessert. When we ordered, we were told the special was for take out only. We didn't see anything on the website that said the special was take out only. We ordered the filet entrée instead. The steaks were great and the service was excellent - just disappointed we couldn't get the meal we were looking forward to.
