LaSalle Grill is located in Downtown South Bend's oldest commercial building. Built in 1868 as the St. Joseph Hotel, the building has survived over 146 years. Converted to restaurant use in 1991, LaSalle Grill has become an institution in South Bend and the region. We have won the coveted AAA Four Diamond rating for 19 consecutive years, the longest run of any restaurant in Indiana. Our menu is rooted in USDA Prime and Choice steaks cooked over a live hardwood fire, Lamb and Pork chops, locally raised Chicken and Duck, Fresh seafood delivered daily, Vegetarian and Vegan options and seasonal game dishes. We have won the Wine Spectators Award of Excellence for over 17 years and employ the only Certified Sommelier working in a restaurant in the state.

Our group was coming into South Bend/Notre Dame for a meeting with family at the University. We expected a late arrival, but we were later than originally anticipated. After calling in for the reservation, the LaSalle Grill reconfirmed our ETA. When we arrived at the restaurant, we were greeted by the Maitre d' and shown to our table. To our... More

The salmon was absolutely delicious and perfectly cooked. The crab cake appetizer was also wonderful along with the wine selection. Great food and excellent service!

Really nice restaurant but very noisy. Lots of variety on menu, good service and food prepared well. Prices on the high side for South Bend but the place was packed. Certainly worth a return visit.

Made a reservation through Open Table. We were delayed and unable to keep our original reservation. Called and spoke to Andrew Galloway, who happened to be the Managing Partner. His graciousness exceeded my expectations. He allowed us to come in at 10:30 and encouraged us not to rush. Our service was warm and professional. We received just the right amount... More

We arrived at 6 pm and our table was waiting. Jill, our top-notch waitress, was cheerful and articulate about the evening's fare We shared six "Cowboy" oysters that were from a micro-osyter farm on Long Island. They were fresh & delicious with home made cocktail sauce that was of perfect heat. Our two salads were crisp with house dressing -... More

Went there for my birthday dinner and requested a quiet setting which they honored. The service was on the spot and the owner was very concerned about our meal and our service. We shared a crab cake appetizer which was moist and seasoned perfectly. I ordered the salmon with artichoke hearts and the portion was large, it almost melted in... More

I am pleased that LaSalle Grill now offers both a vegetarian and a vegan entree on their daily menu, plus they are clearly labeling all other veg and vegan items on the menu. So far I have eaten vegan entrees twice from the new menu and they were creative and delicious. The management was also very responsive when I suggested... More

Widely regarded as the best restaurant in South Bend, the LaSalle Grille provides consistently good food, well presented. One distinction is its frequent offering of exotic meats (such as ostrich), which does not impress a vegetarian such as myself. It is certainly the most expensive restaurant in South Bend. The big negative is the noise level. When the restaurant is... More

Thank you for your recent review of my restaurant. I'm happy to hear that there are many aspects which you like but concerned about a few other things. While it was popular at one time we have not served Ostrich on our menu for the past five years and as I note that you are a vegetarian, we now have... More
