Wonderful meal and ambience. General manager went out of his way to make it a special evening ... from a table in the corner to dimming the lights ... to bringing comp glasses of champagne to the table. High school sweethearts reunited 40 years later. A great meal and service ... a perfect dinner for this special occasion.

The food was good. The trout meuniere was the star of our table, but lacked enough of the meuniere sauce to make it truly decadent. The re-imagined paella was good too.

Our server was pleasant but absolutely not engaging. The robotic service did nothing to enhance the meal and there was very little care from any member of the team. They would pop by on their way to another boring task - on to the next table and another tip.

The dining room was lively and clean and temperature was perfect. The tables are so tightly packed in that you are, without invitation, intimately involved in your neighbor's evening - and you theirs.

There are so many wonderful and unique places to eat in the Village that we won't be back to La Tour and won't recommend it. It is just not worth the money because of the lack of genuine service and care. It's like being on a factory line.

But the food was good.

I have been dining at La Tour for many years . It is obvious that this restaurant should not be considered fine dining . It is also obvious that changes have been made to maximize profitability and decrease the value to the diner . To me the absence of table cloth’s is a cut back in overhead .A prominent Restauranteur once told me that u can judge a fine dining restaurant by the quality of its bread service.Here LaTour has eliminated bread service ,actually bread service is available as an additional charge . Lastly a 3% surcharge is added to the bill at the end ,when the wait service was questioned ,the answer was that the owner decided to place the surcharge to help defray the cost of the kitchen help. Needless to say you can visit any number of other restaurants in Vail the are truly fine dining and not feel that you are getting squeezed,and yes they provide table cloths ,complementary bread service and no surcharge.

We like La Tour, always $500 for four of us like any other fine dinning in the Village but that's inflated as we always spend about $200 on wine. Always good food, ambiance and service.

Food was excellent! Tables were a tad close for my liking. Acoustics seem to cause it to be very loud- other tables volume seemed excessive because of this. Thus a lower score for ambiance. Value was nice because of restaurant week specials, otherwise might be a bit pricier than I prefer. Despite the former, I’d probably go back.

We were greeted by a woman who, after finally finding our reservation, disappeared. She never returned. Another gentleman, who was very nice, asked that we continue to wait, while tables were set. This took about 25 minutes.
My daughters steak was very good. So, she saved part to be taken home. The waiter said he would box it up. When it never returned, I asked, and we were told, “ it’s been thrown out.” He said it was his bosses fault, not his.
I ordered their version of paella which was nothing more than broken spaghetti, tomato sauce and three mussels.
What a disappointment. We have always loved LaTour.

Everytime I go to La Tour for dinner I always say - not again. This was the middle of restaurant week and it was heaving. The accoustics are not particularly good in any case but when it is over packed you seriously cannot hear each other. The staff were on a merry go round throughout the evening and lifting tables over the diners to accommodate the different reservations. It wasn't a relaxing dinner!
The menu needs an update as most items are the same as they were 2 or 3 years ago. The two of my group who hadn't been to La Tour before enjoyed the menu and enjoyed the meal but commented on the chaos in the restaurant.
It was a nice evening out in Vail - nothing to write home about. If I have to go again, I expect I will.

The menu selection was very good. Great entrée options and very flavorful.

Only negative was our server. It was obvious she wanted to turn the table quickly and pushed for our selections early. Once we ordered there was a long gap in her returning to the table to reorder cocktails, provide additional water, etc. She certainly had an attitude.

We happened to dine on a night that was part of Vail Restaurant Week, something we may not do again. The place was packed (good for the restaurant), but not good for the diners. No chance for a reasonable conversation because of the more than energetic noise level and the service not up to standards for La Tour. The food, as always, was wonderful.

La Tour is one of Vail's premier restaurants and serves primarily French food. We had trout and salmon and were pleased with both. The room is small and when filled became rather noisy. Wine list is extensive and the sommelier was very helpful, even upgraded our wine when he discovered the last bottle we had chosen was not chilled.

We have always enjoyed La Tour and are in the Vail Valley several times a year. On 9/24, we came with friends. All entrees were on special: $25 and many wines were 25% off. One of our guests wanted the sole — not on the menu — and was told it would be at the usual market price. No problem for us. We understood. That night, we treated our friends, and liberally tipped our server. When we returned home to Houston, we noticed we did not get the $25/entree price for three of the entrees. I called the restaurant, talked with the manager and was told to send him an email with a copy if the bill. We did. That was two weeks ago. No response to the email. No adjustment of the bill. Very disappointing management response. Update 10/15: the manager did finally respond with a note he was sending us a $33 gift card
