The meal took three and a half hours and the entrees were exceptionally ordinary- to- blah. The facilities were remarkably old and falling apart, scummy floors, youngsters-as-waitstaff hanging out. This was a huge disappointment. I now know why I was able to get reservations during Thanksgiving week so easily- it’s nothing special in any way, shape or form.

Great fine dining experience. Food was excellent except for Creme brule flambee isn’t firm enough for me and there’s a bit alcohol smell left after the flame off.

My husband brought me here in 1998 after he had proposed to me at Hanging Lake near Glenwood Springs. We were happy to say, the place is still as magical as it was then. Excellent service from the host who went out of his way to our wonderful server. The food was absolutely amazing. Thank you for continuing your excellence La Tour. We will return again when we are near Vail!

The restaurant was very nice and our server was on top of it. We enjoyed our steak and salmon. The creme brûlée was to die for. Definitely go back if I’m Vail

Took almost 15 minutes to be acknowledged once we sat, and the server continued to be pretty uninterested I serving us.

Food wasn't great, my gratin potatoes were raw.

This is an excellent restaurant! We treated our best friends for my husband’s birthday. Too bad there was a poorly behaved table of 5 kids across from us. The parents’ fault really, since they were not even paying attention, sitting at a different table. Our strategy was to ask our server to turn on the music (that was playing in the other rooms) in our room, and this helped quite a bit! We have been to great restaurants over the years, and whenever kids are there, they are usually behaved. It was just unfortunate that the ambience was so affected by their shrieking and carrying on. When you spend $400 on a meal, you expect to have more of an adult environment. We’ll definitely go back, and if they try to seat us near kids, we’ll be more forward about asking to be reseated. Try the halibut—it was divine!

Some minor things we commented on to each other: my sliced squash pieces that accompanied my bison ribeye needed to have the skins cut off before serving. The squash looked and tasted great but their skins had the consistency of hard plastic. Our desserts came with small cups and we were given large soup spoons to eat them with; a small demi desert spoon would’ve been nicer. Soups could have been hotter as well as the dinner plate itself. Food cooled off quickly and we ate inside. The bison ribeye was too gristly for that price. None of these comments were game changers. We loved our meal and the dining experience. We will definitely come back!

Fish was dry. Foie gras was overcooked and too sweet. Our favorite food was the lobster Mac and cheese which is a side, which is saying a lot.

We had great memories of La Tour from trips past. Disappointed by the pompous condescending young waiter, and the mediocre food. Sadly, no longer a Vail favorite.

The appetizers were very good, but the steak and duck entrees were not flavorful and the cuts of meat were tough. It was too pricey for the quality. The specialty cocktails were good.

This place was fantastic! We made reservations and were lucky to even get in as it was busy! I marked down the Ambience because even with reservations we were sitting essentially outside and being 9pm in the middle of October it was a bit chilly. That said, that was the only thing I could possibly 'complain' about. The server had great recommendations and was well timed with his service. He was there when you needed him, but not so much it was a bother. The food was all prepared perfectly, my hats off to the chef. Honestly, considering the back drop is Vail, I think it was all at a reasonable value. We would certainly recommend this place to others and will be back.

We came for a reasonable romantic dinner to celebrate our anniversary. We asked to sit outside per covid. They sat us at one of only two tables that didnt have a heater. It dropped to 47 degrees while we ate. The server was pretty much a pill. Made us feel like we were inconvenient. Thought it might just be us or that we had unrealistic expectations but friends of ours who ate a little later were sat at the exact same table with the same waitrr and shared similar sentiments. The food was really mixed. We each had a soup and an entree. The lobster bisque and halibut were wonderful. The french onion and salmon just didn’t make sense. Too many competing rather than complimentary components. When our server asked about the food, my husband aaid “I dont know youll want to hear this...” The aerver replied”Well its my job.” After hearing our experience with the dishes, he said, “But you’re eating it, right?”

Finally, even though I mentioned to the host that we were celebrating our anniversary, there was no recognition of that whatsoever. I didnt want nor expect a free piece of cake or anything, but a simple “congratulations. I hope we can provide a lovely meal for you in honor” would have been a nice acknowledgement that i had shared our personal celebration with La Tour.

The service was terrible. I’ve been here many times and always loved coming to la tour every time I’m in vail. Last night I went and waited 5 minutes to even be acknowledged by the hostess (or anyone) despite there being many servers nearby talking with one anther. Then we were sat and did not see our server for 15 minutes. Our waiter was rude and seemed irritated to wait on us. Someone else brought our check and cashed us out and he seemed angry with us for that too. Very weird and disappointing for our special date night in vail.

Had dinner here while visiting Vail. We both had the duck which was very good. I also asked for a side of the loaded scalloped potatoes and they were delicious. I would go back just for the potatoes.

We ordered two of their speciality cocktails, and both were beyond memorable. I have had 100's of French onion soups in many countries and this one, with the truffle cheese and the braised beef was unique and at the top of my experience. Halibut and Manhattan steak, wonderful. And being able to eat outside feeling safe during COVID, icing on the cake to a wonderful meal. Madeleines with lemon curd, yum.
