    A decidedly tired and unimaginative menu. The only passable items that we had were the bottle of wine and half a dozen oysters. The bread was stale, French onion soup mediocre, and the Dover sole was butchered into fish fingers. Creme brûlée came with a fiery flourish but turned out to be clumpy and grainy. Service was also laughably brutish and clumsy. Save your money and look elsewhere for a nice dinner in Vail.

    The $45 steak looked good, but I couldn’t chew through the terrible cut. The waiter never checked back, so they just removed it from the bill. The rest was okay.

    The Steak Tartare and Soups were very flavorful. The entrees were big portions and well prepared. The service was slightly rushed and it seemed like we were being rushed to eat and leave quickly.

    The hostess was extremely rude at the front. Our waiter forgot my order. The servers threw our food down on the table. The hostess never gave us a coat tags, when we checked our coats and had an attitude when we ask from them on our way out.

    Very noisy, kids screaming. They sat us in the outside part of the restaurant, was very cold. It looked like a cheap bar to get some quick drinks. Food ok, the salad pretty bad, they just open a bag of greens and added a few xtra items, some food was extremely salty. Very expensive for the low quality and terrible ambience.

    The chef at La Tour is a gift from heaven. This is one of our favorite restaurants. Not only is the cuisine consistently excellent, but the service is great also. The turkey was cooked to perfection on Thanksgiving, and our desserts were amazing. As someone with a food allergy (celiac) I find that La Tour is one of the few restaurants where I can eat and never worry about any kind of gluten contamination in the kitchen. Thank you La Tour!

    Went here for my anniversary based off of other reviews. The restaurant tables are packed closely together so if you are looking for an intimate dinner this is not the place. The people at the table next to use were visibly very sick and it was impossible to enjoy the meal next to all of that coughing. The waiter was kind but only checked on us once, we didn't get refills on our water or other beverages. Half of our order was never brought out even after I asked about it twice. The food we did get was fine but I defiantly would not return.

    My husband and I went here for a little date night on Halloween during our stay. We got the truffle halibut and the Manhattan steak as our entrees and the bbq oysters to start. Everything was delicious and the Maitre’d was outstanding. Very welcoming and accommodating. The lakeside park cocktail was light and refreshing. Highly recommend. Please visit this gem during your visit to Vail.

    Very disappointing & underwhelming. Hostess greeted us is leggings & tank top, straight from the gym. Place lacks finesse. Tables one on top of the other, no table linens. Our server carded me, though I’m 35, but told my husband he didn’t need to see his ID, which set a weird a tone. Food bland & very ordinary. Expected much more.

    Should season, if that even really exists anymore, so a bit calmer. Unfortunately John, our server, was covering an entire room of 10 tables, 23 covers which kept him running. He worked hard and made our meal very enjoyable. Atmosphere is very nice, perfect for the area. Price-points are a bit "healthy" especially with the wine list but this is Vail after all. Ultimately however, it is the food and on that, the cuisine, both taste and presentation, was outstanding. Every bite of every dish was terrific. Easy to see why La Tour has been around for over 30 years now. And, hopefully, will be for another 30.

    Been visiting this restaurant for years, but I think it is finally time for a serious renovation. Just looks old and tired (1980's). Food good but nothing special. Came to celebrate a big birthday and while the hostess wished "Happy Birthday" on arrival, no candle in the dessert, no other mention of the occasion. Seemed like a missed opportunity to really make it special. Maybe that is a Covid thing?
