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 drove up from Indianapolis for a one day meeting with a business associate. I remembered the La Salle Grill from past trips to the area almost 4 years ago and asked if we could meet there for dinner. In the fast paced and ever changing world of restaurant dining I was surprised that the caliber of its service and... More

As far as service goes, this place truly shines. On the floor that is. Super friendly people and you feel at home. Getting food out seems to be a challenge though, and I run out of patience for waiting 1.5 hours when a place is only 1/3 full. Menu has a nice seasonal flair like quail with maple glaze and... More

It has been a long time since I have truly enjoyed a dinning experience. I say that; and I dine out all of the time. Last evening I entertained a group of 6 people at the LaSalle Grill. The food was, in a word, superb. But that is not why I am writing. I am writing to compliment the staff... More

We were visiting our freshman daughter at ND and looking for a restaurant that would be a special break from cafeteria food; coming from the NYC area she has been spoiled with easy access to many fine dining options. Not knowing the area, we found LaSalle Grille on Google and took a chance with a reservation by telephone. We arrived... More

We hosted a group of my daughter's friends from Notre Dame and were treated so courteously by Linda who took our reservation to the host who seated us. Our waiter was equally courteous and helped us all share a wonderful meal together. Everyone enjoyed their food and we will plan to visit every time we are in South Bend. This... More

My family had the good fortune to have dinner at the LaSalle Grill this past Saturday after the game. The food was superb. I had the swordfish, which was incredible.

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
