LaSalle Kitchen & Tavern is located on the Third Floor of LaSalle Grill. Join us, Pull up a chair and take your time to review our drinks menu. This could take a while, since we offer 120 whiskeys and scotches, dozens of craft brews, wines, and craft cocktails. Our selection is unparalleled, so tap into our staff’s expertise to help you choose. Settle in for some civilized refreshment and a break from the ordinary.
You probably noticed that this isn’t a brand-new building. That’s no coincidence. In fact, our twenty-first-century establishment is housed in the oldest commercial structure in South Bend, built in 1868 as the Second St. Joseph Hotel. No fake historical patina here–like everything we do, this is the genuine article.
At LaSalle Kitchen Tavern we take food and drink service seriously so you can keep the focus on what matters: relaxing with friends over drinks and a meal.

    My burger was a little undercooked. I prefer that ground beef not be red. To be fair, our server was very busy and could not be always be around when we wanted him, but he did a good job. The atmosphere and the music were EXCELLENT!

    We waited 20+ minutes before a server visited us and only after I waived them down to come over and take our order. We were then served a drink in a glass that was cracked and I had to take it back to the bar because no one came to our table again for a while. It took so long for the food to come out that I had to get the check right away to make sure we were not late for our event and had to rush to eat.

    Appetizers, food, and drinks were amazing. Service was great. It was super crowded but service was steady, wait staff checked in regularly, and I would give it an A+. Live music was also great and the overall vibe was a 10. Cannot wait to return!

    This place is absolutely the best. My drink was on point, the appetizer was expedient and packed just the right amount of flavor and the main course was delectable. A generous portion only led to me repeatedly stating how I knew I should stop taking bites, but could not control myself. I had to eat… Every… Last… Bite… We will certainly return!

    We were going to see Aladdin and only ordered a burger and Quesadilla. Reservation for 6:30 and hoping to leave at 7:30 to get to theatre. Our food took an hour so we had to eat very quickly. Love everything about LaSalle but when they have downtown events they need the kitchen to move faster.

    The food is outstanding and the staff are so friendly. When I loved the house made kimchi the chef came up to talk to us and brought us samples of the house made pickles. Save room for dessert and order the suggested alcohol pairing...the skill of the sommelier is nothing short of magical.

    Made reservation for 5:30 pm because we were to attend a nearby concert event. Upon arrival at restaurant we were told we did not have a reservation for the main area (fine dining) but for the bar 3 floors above. We were seated in the bar area and it was head pounding noisy. Shortly after placing our order for steaks(2-3 minutes) we were served those steaks. We had not received our appetizer, salads or drinks yet therefore we refused our steaks. The food server took them back to keep them warm he said. A few moments later our waitress came by and we told her what happened. She apologized and said the she told the kitchen to make new steaks. After we received our salads, bread and drinks our steaks came again but were cold along with the accompanying potato and vegetable. It was obvious that we were served the original steaks that were well over 30 minutes old. The waitress again apologized and gave us free dessert. Overall the food was very good and the waitress was very good, however the rest of the staff was apparently overwhelmed by the crowd. I think they deserve a second chance on a less busy night.

    We had a great dinner before a concert at the LaSalle Kitchen & Tavern. Our waiter made sure we were served in a way that guaranteed we would make our concert on time. It was a bit hard to hear due to the fact there was a full restaurant however the experience was great and we enjoyed it.

    This will be my last time at lasalle kitchen and Tavern. I’ve never had a chance to review before, but I’ve never left their feeling good about my experience. Hamburger was overcooked and bun severely burnt on one side. Fries were cold and soggy. It took awhile to get our food and it seems to have been sitting there awhile. Will stick to main restaurant from now on.

     sat upstairs at the bar. The menu did not match availability, they are updating their food items but not the menu. Printed menu did not match online menu. A bit disappointing as we both knew what we wanted to order and when we got there neither of the items were available. Picked new items, also not available. Traditional wings were very large, but quite fatty, flavor was great. French dip was much more bread than meat, was not hot, Au Jus sauce was room temperature. Given the number of restaurants in the area, I would not recommend this one.

    The venue is fun and pleasant. However, once the sunset, it was so dark people were using there cellphone flashlights to read menus and pay there bill. Use higher wattage lighting. Candles on tables may also help.

    Brian was an excellent waiter! We were in a hurry with a 3 hr. drive home to Muncie, after attending the ND vs Pitt football game. We had Open Table dinner reservations for 8 PM away from the band, so we could hear each other. Brian seated us immediately in the other dining room, away from the band and took our order right away. We split the 1/2 lb. Classic Burger with fries, got our check and were on our way in less than 1 hr. Great food, service and atmosphere! We will be back!

    Our waitress was great!!! Our table was ready and the service was wonderful. The food was also very good and tasteful. The only problem we had was that when the establishment became full the noise level was very high and it was hard to communicate with our table. Otherwise the establishment was great.

    Lasalle Tavern is a fun and energetic place to enjoy a burger and watch live music with friends. If you're looking for a place to actually be able to hear other people talk though, it's a bit loud.

    The food was mediocre, drinks were expensive and the music was way too loud to even try to hold a conversation with the person sitting next to you. Won’t come back for the entertainment, it was way too loud for my preference.

    It took 30 minutes after being seated to be greeted by our server and receive water. After we got our food he never came to check on how everything was or whether we needed anything more to drink. We sat another 30 minutes after eating to receive our check

    Not really what we expected from looking at the photos of the place and the photos of the food. Burger was brought out very cold, they did remake it but then forgot the cheese. Slow follow up and few check ins. Food was pretty decent, could have been better with a little more card and effort.
