Description: 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 18 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 15 years and employ the only Certified Sommelier working in a restaurant in the state.

My wife and I went to LaSalle for our anniversary recently and not only was the food incredibly delicious (She had the pork chop with a side of Gorgonzola mac' n cheese, while I had the bison strip steak), but our server Kate was terrific. Additionally, if you are going there for a special occasion, be sure to book a... More

Thank you for choosing LaSalle Grill for your anniversary dinner this past week. We take particular delight in helping our guests celebrate their special occasions by making the experience go beyond their expectations.

This was not my first time dining at the LaSalle Grill. For this visit, I called ahead asked for a window table and let them know I was celebrated a special birthday.

A characteristic typically seen in the best restaurants in larger cities is the constant presence of staff, including the maitre'd, the chefs (occasionally), and the ever-present wait staff. Our experience at the LaSalle Grill reminded us of similar experiences in some of Chicago's and San Francisco's best-known fine dining spots. Water glasses remained full, requests were handled promptly, and we... More

My husband and I were in south bend for a Xc meet. Looked on advisor for a nice place to eat. We arrived without reservations about 7:30 on a Friday night ( not a football weekend). We only had to wait a few minutes for a table. Kate was our server. Could not have been more helpful and professional. We... More

Your dining experience will start the minute you walk in the door and you’re greeted with a warm and welcoming smile. Ours was conveyed by Andrew. This greeting sets the tone for the remainder of your dining experience which is very personalized. The service which is often synchronized is efficient and the presentation classy. Nice wine accompanied our appetizer of... More

On my latest visit to LaSalle Grille, I had an extremely enjoyable meal and still consider it to be a top choice when I'm staying in South Bend. The menu has been redesigned since my last visit, but most of the standard items are still there. I really like the addition of the raw bar and seafood starters and highly... More

My wife and I celebrated our 44th wedding anniversary at this restaurant. I must say that everything (from the reception to the dessert) was absolutely superb. The staff was courteous and friendly, and the food outstanding. I highly recommend this restaurant for those who look for an outstanding dining experience.

I love the Kitchen and Tavern on the 3rd floor of LaSalle Grill. Great cocktails and service and interesting small plates. We get the bone marrow often and everything changes seasonally. Lots of bourbon and micro-brews to choose from. The atmosphere is relaxed and home-y. There is live music many nights which is always fun.

We dined here last night and tasted the BEST South American Wines. The food was great but we expect that since we've been here several times. Here's what we love; if a waiter, the sommelier, the host, anyone who walks by will stop what they are doing to answer a question or give an insight, the presentation of the food... More
