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.

We had dinner at La Salle Grill. I ordered the fillet and it was very tender and delicious. The rest of the food was very good as well. My only complaint was our waitress smelled like she had just come in from a cigarette break. Her level of service was fine as long as she didn't get too close. We... More

Thanks for reviewing your recent visit to my restaurant. I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed our signature entree the Filet Mignon. I am very unhappy to hear about your server smelling of cigarette smoke. It is our policy that our staff is not allowed to take cigarette breaks during their shifts. Obviously that policy is not being... More

We've been enjoying LaSalle since the beginning, many years ago, and it continues to provide fine dining in a comfortable atmosphere with efficient, knowledgeable and friendly service. It's not a Chicago or New York restaurant but that's not a criticism. They have kept up with food trends without getting overly precious or expensive. And the restaurant now offers some less... More

This is definitely one of the quality restaurants in South Bend. It's a good meal. It does not reach the level of "great" compared to NYC, Chicago or LA restaurants, but it's worth a visit for a nice meal in town. Service was warm and pleasant. All meat was cooked to requested temperature which is greatly appreciated. The red meat... More

We had another wonderful dinner at LaSalle Grill tonight, partaking in one of the many wine dinners we've had there. The menu and wines were superb, tonight being the Spanish wine dinner. In addition to the extraordinary wine dinners at LaSalle, we also enjoy the usual varied and excellent dinners; of course, the wine list is just outstanding. All of... More

The LaSalle Grill is considered one of the best restaurants in South Bend, and deservedly so. We've been there several times. The entrees we've had were absolutely delicious (especially the filets) and the desserts terrific. Our service is always very attentive and knowledgeable. What's not to like? Well, this may be our personal taste, but we find the decor somewhat... More

Stopped in last night on our way back from Chicago. Was a little bummed that the Cigar Bar is now closed, but had a good dinner anyways (filet, Lasalle potatoes, salad, dessert). Service was good, Cory and Ann were very personable. Filet was good (not great), especially at the value-point during Restaurant Week. I'd go back if I was in... More

Good morning: Thank you for your kind comments on tripadvisor. I am sorry that you were not aware of the demise of our popular Cigar Bar, Club LaSalle, but the state of Indiana chose to pass legislation that prohibited us from continuing offering tobacco products there. We are working on a joint project to bring a cigar store and lounge... More
