We used to live in Vail and drove over from Dillon for my bday. Everything was great! Only issue we had is that our server didn’t bring us bread, so we had to ask. Also our oysters didn’t come with lemon or cocktail sauce. We love La Tour!

Heard about La Tour from a friend who lives in Vail and dined last Monday night. We found the menu to be more varied than other fine dining restaurants in Vail. The wine list has reasonably priced selections if you are not in a mood to spurge. Wine by the glass program was good. The sommelier was helpful without being snobby. Overall experience - we would defiantly return and recommend La Tour.

La Tour remains the very best restaurant in Vail. The food is absolutely delicious, creative and beautifully presented. The service is impeccable. Although it is expensive, it is worth every dollar. You can find no better restaurant in Vail and we have been to nearly all. I highly recommend La Tour if you are interested in fine dining and a meal you will long remember.

Great little restaurant. Enjoyed the ambiance. The escargot and foie gras were delicious. My wife and I both had the black truffle marinated black cod which was devine. As others have noted, the food could have come out a little warmer which is really my only knock on the place. Service was terrific. David, the wine sommelier, took great care of us. The 10th Mountain bourbon chocolate mousse cake was a fabulous way to end the evening.

Initially tried to serve the incorrect vintage wine. The Som said they must have made a mistake on the menu. Lobster appetiser came out with a burnt half bun on the side that looked like the beginning of a Subway. Steamed potatoes with fish had bad eyes left on and we were told it was done for added “flavour”. Entrees were bland and the fish served with Japanese seaweed and shaved truffle just didn’t work visually or in terms of flavours. We were given a free dessert but it just didn’t compensate. $300US for two people with no dessert added insult to injury. We have been going there for years to enjoy traditional French food but you could no longer call it a French restaurant and sadly we won’t be back. Au revoir!

Made reservations for 12 about one month prior. They sat us in the bar next to the swing door going into the kitchen.
They told us they couldn’t put us in the dining room because of all the reservations they had. Had I known we were going to be seated on the bar, I would have gone somewhere else. Not going back.

Very good dinner with friends at La Tour. Good selection on the menu and everyone was happy with what they ordered. A little off-putting that you need to order bread and pay $6 for it. I would recommend dining here however. Staff very friendly and accommodating.

They need a GM in place. Food was great - service was clustered and confused. A few waiters and waitresses did not conduct their business professionally. It comes down to training.

Not the same. We have been going here for over 20 years and lately (the last year or so) things have really fallen off significantly. Service is rushed - we got our salads before cocktails, had to ask for bread basket, soup arrived within 2 minutes of the wine orde, entrees arrived within 10 minutes of ordering.. Our whole meal was over in 45 minutes - not something memorable. We had two different people waiting on us who asked the same questions within minutes of each other.

Too bad but cannot recommend La Tour anymore.

It was nice restaurant in a past, but sometimes changed into the worse directions... the menu is completely different. The lamb and the salmon were cold and not were prepared not the way we ordered . They bring the food in the hot plate but the food is only worm. Bread was not fresh . Will never giver go back.

Food is consistently well-done. Every year, when we come to Vail, this is a definite stop for us. The lamb rack was very good with a tasty jus, fava beans, olives, which went very well with the Meyer lemon gelee. The accompanying cauliflower gnocchi were fluffy. Husband & brother had the Fideua, which they felt were good, not great.

Sadly, since about two years ago, bread is no longer complimentary. $6 will get you ricotta, olives, butter with pink sea salt along with three types of cold bread. We'd have preferred to have free bread only as the other stuff didn't justify being nickel and dimed. Also, there used to be a complimentary post-dinner hot chocolate shooter, which is apparently no longer served. But if you didn't know any better, this place would be worth coming to.

Lastly, bring a flashlight because you won't be able to see your food.

There was a nearby table of 5 that was so loud and yelling, it made our dinner unpleasant. Neither the waiter nor the matre d' who was nearby quieted them. Finally a fellow at the table next to them spoke to them and I got up and went over to ask them to be considerate. They quieted down then.

We have dinner every year at La Tour during our annual ski vacations to Vail. In our opinion, it is the best restaurant in Vail. The food is always superb (including an amazing Dover soul entree--you don't expect to get fish this fresh and well-prepared in the middle of Colorado!).
