I liked everything .... but found the 3% surcharge such an annoyance I left a lower tip than normal . The owners should not do this surcharge . It’s not good for the wait staff . Raise the prices 3% from their already lofty levels and don’t tell us .

Had to wait 29 mins past our reservation. We were sat at a table that was in the middle of the walk way and we asked to move and server was rude. They were out an appetizer at 8 pm. My guest ordered a $55. Entree Dover sole and it was terrible.

The restaurant is always noisy in an excessive way in some cases. Food is really good and our server was great. We come here every time we visit Vail and would not miss it. Very convenient in town and you should make reservations in advance. It was our anniversary trip and our waiter brought us a creme brûlée with a sparkler gratis! Always a treat and the menu is changed periodically to keep things interesting.

Service was off. We have been dining at La Tour for years. We were never offered a wine list, water glasses empty numerous times throughout dinner, spoons and seafood forks not provided until after paella served, etc. The 3% surcharge for service resulted in worse service. Food was ok but not even close to prior dining at La Tour. Watched servers serve dishes from the right side all night. Sweet Basil and Splendido were far superior in food and service. Disappointing dinner

Night out with friends. We have never been disappointed here.
Found several nice wine selections.
Fine variety in the menu. Everyone was happy.
noisy but many places in Vail are too.
Indulged in desserts. Also a big hit.
One of our favorites for special occasions.

Italy meets France dinner with wine pairing was magnificent! From the amuse bouche trio, through multiple courses ending with almond biscotti, vanilla madeline & house-made limoncella, was perfect.

Our server Anna, and sommelier, Kai, were attentive, knowledgable, and friendly.

We love La Tour - and can't wait to go back!

Consistently great service & food. Loved that they had several bottles of a special pricey wine that is not easy to find anymore. Lovely presentation & very attentive. Already recommended to others coming to Vail. Our friends from Denver enjoyed it very much too as this was their 1st time. Dover Sole is a favorite

We enjoyed La Tour again. The menu had changed substantially, making us think the may have changed chefs. This was denied by our server,however. I enjoyed the fore gras and found the portion size to be good. The wine list was good, but overvalued.

Service can be spotty here, but we had a good waiter this time around. Most of the meal - cod, creme brûlée, apple cake, chocolate dessert, was decent but not exceptional. The roasted acorn squash was outstanding, and the gratis hot cocoa was not only a beautifully presented, creative idea, but possibly the best I've had anywhere. Definitely overpriced, and the 3% "surcharge" is obnoxious, but still one of the better restaurants in Vail. It shouldn't take much for them to step up their game for better reviews.

Dinner was ok. My Husband and his friend love the chicken paillard . I had the rack of lamb which came with some kind of potato pie which I thought was tasteless and one carrot and cut into four pieces which I thought was mediocre as a side dish. Rack of lamb was very small. About 5 ounces .I thought it was expensive for what they serve you. My salad was served with the cheese stack and it was supposed to be a hot piece of cheese and it was not hot it was actually fried cold cheese .The server removed from our bill. Overall they have some new stuff in the menu but I m
Hesitant to try after trying the rack of lamb .

Our experience at La Tour has been our best at Vail on this years visit. Even compared to Beano's , La Tour is the best. Vincent was a great steward of our experience, but everyone was great.From cocktails, to after dinner port, we loved the whole experience. Keep doing what you are doing, especially the BBQ oysters

We have been coming to La Tour for many years and always book many times each season. Our request for the front room was always honored (in their system) but this tine they tried to put us in the back, very noisy and very warm section. We did end up in the front room by insisting even though a large party was due an hour later. Food was excellent as always but disappointed that they are now charging for bread and adding a 3% surcharge as well. I think the prices are high enough without adding this insult. Kind of saying business is bad so they have to make more money somewhere. We will continue going since it is one of our favorite restaurants, just not as often.

The restaurant was overwhelmed and understaffed by pourly trained servers.
Wine arrived after entrees. Couldn’t communicate with our server. Fish made my wife sick that evening, my steak was tough as cardboard.
Not worth the price, total disappointment, living on its past reputation.
I will never go back

Disappointing food, so-so service. Salad was overdressed (oily) and under-seasoned (oily). Love la Brea bread (at an additional $6), but slightly stale (pre-sliced?). Beautiful Dover sole was over-cooked and tough at the edges (Tough!! It's SOLE, one of the most tender fish filets on earth). Last meal we had there was exceptionally nice and in the past La tour has been a bit up-and-down. Brought out-of-towners, so it was especially disappointing. Service was good, not great, not attentive and took plates early (like bread plates, just after someone else asked if we would like more bread and we reordered). On a positive note, LOVE the art on the tables and ambiance.

Is this the best restaurant in Vail? It's a contest in our minds between Sweet Basil and La Tour, but we love La Tour best. Who would expect to have tuna poke and Dover sole this great so far from the ocean? But these and other dishes are first rate. It's a lovely restaurant with very good service.

We’ve been going to LaTour for about a decade as part of our annual family ski trip. It continues to hold up well in the stiff Vail competition. Black cod with Truffles was loaded with Truffles, the Lamb chop perfectly cooked, and lobster appetizer was scrumptious. We’ll be back next year!
