The service was excellent. Our server was very knowledgeable about The menu and was able to answer questions and make suggestions. My friend and I had the seafood specials: bass and deep sea scallops. Both were delicious. A very enjoyable dining experience.

It was our anniversary. Ben was our waiter and was very attentive. He brought us a free glass of champagne to celebrate our occasion. He gave us great recommendations on drinks and menu items. We felt special from the moment we walked into the moment we left.

It has a very solid reputation, but we were not that impressed with our food. The service from our waiter and sommelier was exceptional though. We hope to give it another try in the future.

We eat at La Tour often. This evening was just not up to par. My wife had the striped bass and the heirloom tomato salad. Her meal was very good and the salad was fabulous. I had the steak tartar which was very salty and I was not fond of the coarse consistency. I also had the lamb shank, which was so tough, I sent it back with the request that if that's the way they prepare it that I'd rather have something else. They brought me another shank which was half the size and almost as tough. I was too hungry to complain. This was an unusual evening at La tour.

Dined here many times over the past decades... appeared that there was new wait staff being trained at the expense of the guests. Waiter never came back to check on our meal until we were nearly finished?
Also, ‘Odd to see large dog in the restaurant, dog owner’s wife dressed in cut off jeans/tee shirt, he wearing ball cap (backwards) & tee shirt in a fine dining restaurant? Fine dining in Vail is losing its appeal.

Had a reservation for table of 6. We were shown a table that looked like a cheap booth next to the kitchen and next to the bar that was noisy with people and drinks being made. Asked for a different table. They moved us to another table, very reluctantly, which was better than the first. However, it was hot, very noisy still, service was OK but not great. Prices were high for what was provided. We had eaten there couple of times before and were pleased. I do not know what happened that day but it was off putting and very poor considering the prices.

We had an excellent dinner. Chef’s tasting menu started with a tomato salad with cheese and granola. Sounds strange but tasted great. Second course was pork belly with a southern flare. Met the chef who was from Asheville NC so it made sense. Third course was cauliflower gnocchi with duck. Wines that were paired were also excellent and paired well. Very good dinner.

Poor attitude by server. The food was salty and no one cared. They said they had the entree we wanted them said hey were out of it with no alternative. The couple across the way said their bbq oysters were cold and server just shrugged.

Two years ago we dined here and thought it was awful. This year we thought we would try it again due to good reviews and it is still awful.
Ordered Margarita. Tasted of store bought and the salt was smeared on one side and no salt around the other. A mess.
Foie gras on pound cake. Excessively sweet. Mixed green salad with balsamic dressing. Bland and at $14 ridiculous.
Gnocchi and duck confit. If it had 1 ounce of duck I would be shocked. Gnocchi were bland and tasteless as well. Lamb shank was dry and again tasteless.
Ordered the La Brea bread. This had a sampling of 3 different breads of which one had been sliced too early and had dried out.
Definitely will not return as we’ve decided it is hopeless!

They were out of three things we ordered and the waitress didn’t know as we were ordering. We found out five minutes later.
Two items — the shrimp and the brussel sprouts were not cooked through!!
They didn’t bring out all the cocktails at once... we had to remind them.
Very disappointing!

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
