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.

The food was quite good, but the best part of my dining experience was the service. I was in the Southbend area on business and was dining alone, The staff, most especially my server, Cindy, was quite solicitous and attentive, in a good way (she would stop by to engage me in a brief conversation so that I didn't feel quite so alone). The restaurant started me with a lovely dish of deer (which I don't usually eat) that was very tender with apple cider grits (which I also don't usually like) that was quite good. Cindy also offered to order a "half salad" which was much appreciated since I was by myself and the half caesar was very favorable and fresh tasting. I thought the pan seared Branzino was a bit over cooked, but the lentils that accompanied it were perfect. The ambience at the LaSalle Grill is beautiful; it felt as if you were in a well appointed,friendly club (but not stuffy). This is a high-end restaurant and if you have any reason to be in Southbend, or live nearby, I would highly recommend the LaSalle Grill as a special occasion place to have a very fine dining experience.

Our first visit, we will very likely be back soon! The food was delicious, the setting was very enjoyable but the best part was the service we received from our young and very attentive waitress! She went above and beyond by monitoring the time for us so we didn’t miss our show. Very impressive experience!!

The two meals I've eaten at LaSalle Grill are hands down two of the best meals I have ever eaten.

It’s too loud. Sound proof the place. The jambalaya wasn’t spicy, like at all. Steak was good. Waitstaff was attentive. It’s pricey

We dine here every time when we are in South Bend visiting our kids. In 6 years, we’ve never had a bad meal.

We love going here! The food is always excellent and the service is outstanding. We never felt that we were rushed as we were catching up with friends. A great wine and cocktail selection too.

Was very disappointed in our business meal. Have been to the LaSalle Grill several times, and this was truly a disappointment. After being seated at our table we waited for over 20 minutes before we could get our drink order. Our food took over an hour. Our entire dinner was three hours long. Plus the steaks were below average.

Came here after friend said it was good.
Made reservation and was greeted at door by a friendly hostess.
Sat us right away.
Great wine selection at reasonable prices.
Waitress gave us a great run down on local offerings and a detailed descriptions of all items.
Ordered the rack of lamb and I’ve had lamb at a bunch of places and this was by far the best ever!
Other guests had grouper and steak and they was very happy with the choices.
Would recommend highly!!!!!!
