This was my best meal and wine in Colorado, and I spent a week, mostly in Denver. It’s worth a night in Vail just to eat here.

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?

Celebrated our wedding anniversary. The waitstaff was friendly, attentive and helpful. The meal was possibly the best we’ve ever had. The French onion soup was better than anything we had in Europe. Highly recommend!

Restaurant week in vail ain’t what it used to be at the better vail restaurants. Really no deal at all. And we like the inside of the restaurant the best and they would not let anyone sit there for some reason. Still good but a disappointing restaurant week experience.

Delicious food and great service! The only complaint I have is the wine bottle display wall was really gross… super dusty with dead bugs on the shelves.
When your meal costs as much as it did, you don’t want to be looking at dead bugs and a layer of dust while you eat…

La Tour canceled my reservation without any notification due to building damage many days before. And I responded to open tables confirmation email the day before that I would be there.
When I arrived, I was finally met by a man who was rude and completely unapologetic who said , “clearly we are closed”! I would not have known that since I’ve never been there and did not receive a call from them. I will never attempt to go again. There are too many wonderful options in Vail.

My entree, duck breast, was undercooked to my taste. Server took it back to kitchen, upon return, the whole plate had been microwaved, rendering the duck, and accompanying Brussels sprouts and lentils inedible.
The wine list and sommelier were the only saving grace.
Totally disappointing meal to say the least. I left this restaurant hungry!
