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.

I have eaten twice highlighted by the service I received from Mackenzie when I was sitting at the bar by myself. I had the duck breast, which was succulent, tender and cooked rare as I like it. Mackenzie was friendly, fresh from training and knew her stuff. She was friendly, not gratuitous, informative not overbearing and made me feel at... More

This is a elegant, comfortable restaurant in downtown South Bend. We are from Chicago and we make a point to eat at The LaSalle a Grill each time we visit South Bend. On our most recent visit, my husband ordered antelope for his entree. It was a hearty portion that was delicious. He also ordered garlic poached shrimp with homemade... More

We're visitors to South Bend and were given recommendations on numerous restaurants. We selected LaSalle and are glad we did. We split the LaSalle Wedge salad - good size to split without being too much or too little. She got the Strip steak and I got the Strip au Poivre. Both were excellent cuts, very tender and cooked properly, that... More

I was visiting relatives in South Bend and they took me to LaSalle Grill. The food was delicious. One of our party ordered the brie appetizer which was very good. I had the duck which was very good also. I would have liked possibly a slightly larger portion. We had the chocolate cake with ice cream to share for dessert... More

We dine in South Bend several times per year. A visit to this city would not be complete without enjoying a magnificent dinner at the best restaurant in town. The fact that it has been around so long is testament that they are doing everything right and then some. What do I enjoy? The cocktail list has some classics, long... More

Definitely a highlight in South Bend. Although the menu is limited and focuses on meat or fish, the entrees are perfection! The wine selection is excellent. I particularly recommend the salmon....one of the best I have ever had anywhere. Our table was also enthusiastic about the pork chops and duck. The only disappointment was a vegetarian selection which was a... More

Thank you for your recent review of my restaurant. I am happy to hear the great comments on the Faroe Island Salmon, the Kurobuta Pork Chops and the excellent Maple Leaf Farms duck which is sourced from nearby Milford Indiana. I took note of the disappointment in the vegetarian entree and we are working on providing better options in the... More

In town with my husband to pick up our son from camp @ Notre Dame and thought we'd try this place. We both travel often to major cities across the US and Europe.

Lasalle Kitchen and Tavern, upstairs from the Grill, is a totally different dining experience than the more formal Grill. My wife and I love the Grill, service, atmosphere, food, and a great place to go for an everyday or special occasion. After experiencing the Grill we wanted to try the Kitchen and Tavern to see if the attention to detail... More
