Very disapointing. Entrees were over cooked and served cold. Waitstaff needs a lot of training.

Our main course had to be sent back because the pork was no cooked. The rest of the meal was subpar at best. Would not recommend.

Food was discounted for off season but I would have enjoyed at regular price. Meat cooked well and cut like butter. Bread was fresh and crispy. Place was full not packed. Atmosphere contemporary. We could not eat dessert. Too full. Service a little slow but competent.

I happened to be in Vail for work and did a quick search of best places to eat and found La Tour. The reviews weren't great but I decided to ignore the nit picky and try it out. I had a small table over in a corner and was seated next to a couple who were very loud so I switched my seat to block out the noise.

My server was very attentive and offered good advice when I asked for feedback on 2 different dishes. All of the entrees were $25 since its off season so the value was great. I ordered the escargot entree and then the bread plate with butter and olives. While the flavor of the escargot was very good, I found the house made cheese on the bread plate to be very bland.

For my entree I ordered the beef tenderloin which was OUT OF THIS WORLD. I am a red meat eater and ordered it medium rare and it was perfect. There was not one morsel left on my plate. My dessert was even better! I ordered the apple-date cake with the whipped cream and bananas foster sauce. If I didn't think it would be rude I would have licked the plate. So good!! Topped all of this off with a nice latte and enjoyed a nice after dinner walk back to my hotel.

I will be back at some point and you can bet I will get the tenderloin!

Great atmosphere, delicious food, and attentive staff. Had a delicious dinner with many options to choose from on menu. Entree was cooked perfectly with nice plate presentation. I had steak which was tender and flavorful. My friends enjoyed seafood and a vegetarian option. Waiter was friendly, accommodating, and enjoyable.

We had a reservation but were sat in the bar right next to the in/out door for the kitchen (probably the worst table in the place) Our creative cocktails were beautiful and delicious. The lobster toast was amazing. I ordered a medium rare steak that was overcooked and even burnt a bit as well as bland. The service was alright, but no one asked how our food was...

Food was good but not great. Very expensive. (soup $16.00 per cup).
Dining area too loud and cluttered for my taste.

The restaurant was doing $20.17 entrees, so it was extremely busy. So busy that we were crowded into a corner table that was very awkward for the servers, they forgot a sauce on an entree, and they charged $6.00 for bread. The wine was excellent, the service was nominal, the food was good. I'm very turned off by them charging for bread now and probably won't go back. There are too many other choices.

Thank you again for giving us a wonderful anniversary dinner. This was our third time celebrating our anniversary with you. I appreciate that your chef accommodates my food allergies (gluten, dairy, soy, and fructose). The salmon pork belly entree is the best!! Our waiter, Bob, has helped us for the last two years and he’s great. One suggestion - offering a gluten free bread before the meal would be fantastic! See you next year!

We were there during restaurant week and the entrees were all 20.17 and the entree choices were all superb. I had venison and my wife had Halibut, both meals were served with a cranberry sauce which was delicious. Our waiter, BOB, was exceptional.
We were slightly disappointed with their offer of 25% off wines. Most wines were in the $200 range

La Tour is one of the best restaurants in Vail! Our waiter Bob (or Todd I forgot) was great! The sommelier Kai did an awesome job of recommending two delicious wines for us. The chicken paillard is always awesome there. Highly recommend La Tour and will be back!

I always dine alone and service is sub par. The food was very good, the waiter umm before or after he told me the beer I ordered was non alcoholic. Then didn't offer a second glass till my food was almost gone. My reservation was at 9:30 and it was so loud.

Our waiter was fantastic and the oysters so fresh and yummy. Dover sole was mediocre and the steak was just bad.

Don't order the steak. They killed it.
Nothing worse than waiting to find your waiter just to get the check.

When we are in Vail we always make it a point to have dinner at La Tour . The food is great, the staff is knowledgeable and friendly and they have an outstanding wine list.

My husband and I have enjoyed every evening at La Tour...until this time. Seemed like a really off night. The food was still great, but we left wondering whether to return to La Tour any time soon. So sad.

My wife and I visit La Tour every time we come to Vail. We both always get the braised short rib French onion soup. To die for! I had the best Lobster Roll when we dined there for lunch. One of the best restaurants in Vail.

One of the best restaurants in Vail and for good reason. Outstanding French inspired cuisine with excellent service.

This is a sure thing for a wonderful evening.

We've eaten here before and always have had a wonderful experience. This time, it took the kitchen 1 hours 45 minutes to bring our meals, which by then were unappealing. BTW, the restaurant was not at all crowded. Well over an hour into our seating, we notified the manager of our displeasure , and after apologizing non-stop, he promised to learn the reason for the delay, and would report back to us. After another 30 minute wait and not having seen him at all, we started to leave. Right then, the waiters brought the meals, so we stayed, but didn't enjoy them as we should have. The restaurant comp'd our entrees, which was very nice, but we would have preferred paying full price and ultimately enjoyed the experience the way we expected. The waiter was very apologetic, and because he had no part in the kitchen's failure, we tipped him accordingly, but management really handled their problem unprofessionally and unsatisfactorily. From now on, we have other options for fine dining in the Valley.

They changed the menu and the current one is not that good. I had the lamb and cheese appetizer which was horrible and too salty. And I also had the grilled foie gras, which is not for everybody, as it is very oily. I liked it, but the portion was minuscule. My husband had the Grilled Venison Medallions, which were good, but again the portion was tiny. My daughter had Mac and cheese and it was not good at all. And the chocolate mousse dessert was mediocre as well. Overall disappointed with this dinning experience. I was expecting more from a French cuisine restaurant. It is expensive too and the quality does not justify the price.

We've been a few times before and food was excellent. This time it wasn't particularly flavorful. Everyone has a bad night so we will try again.
