La Tour is always good, so we wanted to try their Sunday brunch. The outdoor area and fresh air indoors is delightful. They also have had live entertainment most days this summer. I loved the special brunch spritzer cocktail and the lobster vol au vent. Great wine list too.

Sat very quickly. The French onion soup was delicious but the mushrooms Wellington lacked flavor

We ordered their two specials, Chicken and Dover Sole. Seemed our waiter forgot about us and then when our food was delivered it was cold and side dish didn’t come till later. Neither dish was anything special. The outside seating was nice, but much better food in the Valley. Go elsewhere

We had to wait for more than an hour for our table because they had promised an outside one.
The food was served cold which is a pity, nobody wants their lamb cold.

We were seated outside at the appropriate distance listening to live music. Each course was superbly prepared and we locked the plate clean!

The service was very good and attentive, the food however was average. The grilled oysters were fine but nothing special, especially for $16. My steak was a little tough and not warm. The halibut was fine but the accompanying seaweed salad clashed with the fish.

As a visitor in Vail, this was my second time to dine at La Tour and I was not disappointed. Considering the COVID limitations, they have done an excellent job of adding outdoor seating, social distancing and sanitizing. We enjoyed the live music and our lamb chops were excellent - cooked to perfection. The wine list is interesting and the overall dining experience was very enjoyable. La Tour is definitely on my list for next year!

Waiters need some serious training.- lacking in all pleasantry and dome downright rude. Food was nice, BBQ oysters and halibut great. You can go elsewhere in Vail for the same price and a better experience overall.

Terrible service and ok food. My husband and I waited 20 minutes before the server came over to take our drink orders and then another 15 to actually get our drinks.

The food here is probably the best in Vail. There was a singer tonight, and he was great, but it made it pretty loud at times. All the same, they have great outdoor seating available and superb food.

Fantastic. Food and drink were excellent and service was as well. Ambience and setting are not great, tables were close together. We were lucky to get a table that was distanced. But this place is charming in a traditional French sidewalk cafe setting. I would say a prices are a little lower than comparable Vail restaurants. The fresh oysters were marvelous, mignonette was excellent. We also had the escargot, very good. My wife had the Halibut and I had the Manhattan Steak, (we shared) both were excellent. We've been coming to Vail for more than 40 years and have eaten at many of the town's restaurants however this was actually our first time eating at La Tour. We were very pleased and will eat here again.

An anniversary dinner and about the 8th time we have celebrated at Le Tour. Fantastic service. Awesome atmosphere. The food is never disappointing. Vail is a favorite. Le Tour is a must when there.

I booked this restaurant because it was one of the only ones available on open table for the time I wanted. That should have been a sign. The food at this place is terrible. I ordered the halibut and it was overcooked to the point where the texture was rubbery and mealy. Not what one would expect for an almost $40 entree . Do your best to avoid this place ....

Felt like we were "rushed out" on a Friday late afternoon, with no reason... as half the tables were still empty. Even before all of us finished our meals, plates were already taken away while some of us were still eating... Specifically indicated that this dinner was after an engagement proposal ( thought the restaurant will pay attention to this Special Occasion ), but to my great disappointment: NOTHING !!!! Food was OK, nothing special though.... will not be back !!

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Vail. We have had a home here for 30 years. We frequent La Tour frequently. The food is nothing short of exceptional. This particular visit I was solo and sat outside. Beautiful evening!!

11am brunch reservation...not seated until 11:20am. 3 of our 4 meals came out wrong...my son had to send his back and it didn’t come back out until everyone else was done...explanation from waiter was, “sorry we’re really busy.” Waiter charged us for an extra children’s juice then argued with me before removing it. Overall, average food and bad service...second time I’ve had poor service at La Tour...will go somewhere else next time.

We were seated promptly indoors, although I had requested an outside table. However, it was a table by the window, which was nice. Service was fine, but we did have to wait a bit to order entrees. Our bread app and goat cheese salad were very good. Unfortunately, neither of us cared for our entrees, steak and the grouper special.
