La Tour was everything we had expected, and more! The wait staff ( Stevan) wasvery professional but not overbearing. The wines by the glass were reasonably priced and excellent. The Lamb Shank and Lobster Bisque as well as the Wygu Beef and Wedge Salad were fabulous and prepared perfectly!

Amazing food. A little pricey, but you get what you pay for. Service was a little slow, but they were very nice once they came around. The Cure All drink was delicious. The desserts were not as impressive as the entrees, but still very tasty. I would go again

There were 3 of us that ate at La Tour for dinner, the food and service were excellent and we sat right next to the fire which pleased my wife and daughter. If you are in Vail this should be one of the restaurants on your list.

This was my second time to eat at La Tour, and this experience was no where near my last visit. The food lacked sauces for several of the guests, the lamb shank was not falling off the bone as it should and the kale was not cut or cooked properly. We were disappointed, but understand that the season may be part of the problem.

Servers were very nice, but confusion about our drink orders made do awkwardness.

We went for mother’s Day and my husband had his heart set on a specific menu item and when he ordered the waiter told him you were out if it and by this point we had already had the menu for about 20 m - kinda depressing- otherwise good- kinda pricey

Met the chef on the chairlift during his lunch break and had made the decision to dine there half way up the lift based on his passion for his profession and description of the night’s entrees. Did not disappoint. While French inspired, amazing locally procured dishes are available like trout and Wagu steak. Kids menu is also second to none with salmon, NY Strips and chicken among the traditional Mac and cheese, spaghetti, etc. kids menu came with an amazing dessert of ice cream, gourmet waffle cone and fresh fruit. The only recommendation I would have for the management would be to add a reasonably priced house or table wine and for those diners satisfied by such and offering.

We are long-time patrons of La Tour. As residents, we were sad to learn the restaurant would no longer serve lunch.

We made reservations weeks ago for two family birthdays. When we arrived, they could not find our reservation. Although we received 2 confirming calls and emails a day leading up to the dinner.

Once seated, they had ONE waitress for the entire room. When we finished we were asked about dessert. We were told that if we did not purchase a dessert, they could not sing happy birthday.
I don’t think I’ve EVER gone to a restaurant that did not do something for patrons with birthdays. Tacky to say the least.

We left and will NOT be going back. Present management is just awful. Period.

The service was outstanding. The food was completely memorable. We talked about the black cod for days! My 9- year old niece ordered the chicken from the kids’ menu and was still talking about it the next day. The server (Stephen?) could not have been nicer. The entire experience was great. We love LaTour and go there every time we visit Vail.

Loved this place! Excellent food and great wine list without any pretension. We also enjoyed the music - mellow ranging from Allman Brothers to Widespread Panic to Jerry Band. Kai the sommelier was super helpful and server was good too. My dish, the sole, was delicious ... only complaint is the hericot vert were barely cooked, but a minor issue. Will definitely return on our next visit to vail and highly recommend.

The food at La Tour was amazing! However, depending on the server who you get, they may try to up-sell you on everything. Our server seemed very nice however mentioned that there was an upcharge for bread and asked if we would like some, we said no, and discussed a few other options. Upon ordering, he said okay great, and bread too and not really understanding we said sure, as he implied it was complimentary because he mumbled that there was an upcharge when he first arrived at the table. Then when we ordered a bottle of wine, which we pronounced perfectly, he asked what wine again and didn't seem to know what wine we were talking about, wanted to see the page the wine was on, and then proceeded to tell us that the wine was very bad and then pointed to the wine that was $20 more and told us is was the best wine in the restaurant and everyone ordered it... which I doubt as this is a restaurant with a french influence and we were ordering a super tuscan wine, which isn't as familiar of a wine with most people.

All in all, I felt a bit swindled, however the food was GREAT! (as was the bread, which we didn't need but did eat).
