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 were there on an off night...the service was slow and the food was bland and inconsistent. My fish was very undercooked...Ineatable...when I told the issue to the server, the attitude was inexcusable.

We braved the terrible weather on Valentine's night and it was well worth it. The atmosphere is always warm and welcoming and the food on this night was exceptional, especially enjoyed the trout with crab stuffing and cranberries. And the young waiter, Joshua, did an excellent job. we thoroughly enjoyed the evening.

I was not expecting such an upscale restaurant in a college town. The food was delicious. The Bourbon Parmesan Creamed Spinach was the best I have ever tasted! It took a while to get our meal because it is prepared when ordered not before. Well worth the wait. A little pricey. The bill with tip for my husband and me... More

We very much enjoyed the wine, the service and most of the food. All the food was wonderful except the asparagus, it was tough and woody. The raspberry chiffon tartlet was out of this world.

I recently arrived late in South Bend recently and stopped by for a late dinner. The atmosphere was typical for a midwestern steakhouse. High ceilings and dark paneling. The wait staff was attentive but not obtrusive. I had the cauliflower soup. It was creamy and the presentation was tasteful. However, the soup itself was bland. I followed with the NY... More
