We continue to return because it was our favorite restaurant in town, and I keep Hoping it Will return to its former 5 star self. It is obvious when chef is not in the kitchen. The venison , a go to dish for my husband, was not up to The standard expected. The goat cheese ravioli were swimming in a fig sauce The sauce was delicious but overpowered the dry, yes sadly dry, ravioli The profiteroles, on the other hand, never disappoint

The servers should not take smoking breaks. No one wants to smell the remnants of cigarette smoke on a server when he is pouring wine across a table

In the past, someone offered to hang a diner’ coat. It’s a pity that they are draped all over the backs of chairs.


Sadly, What was once ‘special’, seems dialed in now

Great staff and the owner/chef always makes a point to make great food with great presentation and, time willing, comes out and talks to the guests.

There are always great choices on the printed seasonal menu. Add in a number of daily specials and it gets harder to decide. We both had the seafood crepe which was very tasty, followed by the lamb duo special and the boneless spare ribs from the regular menu. All great choices on a rainy, chilly evening. Thank you, Chef Michael.

This may be the most consistently good restaurant in the area. The tasting menu is both excellent from a taste standpoint but equally great for its variety of choices and cost. The main menu offers the classic French dishes so it's hard to go wrong with any selection.

Cute spot in the town of Ridgewood. Chef comes around to every table to greet guests. We tired the souffle, lobster bisque and the Beef Wellington Napoleon, all delicious.

High quality food with an authentic french atmosphere. We had the foie gras appetizer with duck and grouper entrees. We capped it up off with a delicious apple strudel. The service was excellent as usual. There's a reason Latour is a Ridgewood staple.

Our server was as scrumptious as the food in this little getaway that I thought I was in La Riviere.

My wife and I chose Latour to celebrate our 33rd wedding anniversary. It was the perfect choice. We shared a bottle of our favorite wine while discovering what makes this quaint restaurant unique. Each course melted in our mouths and the service was perfection. Chef Latour took the time to visit with each table so we are able to tell him in person how much we enjoyed the meal. We cannot wait to return!

My wife and I went to Latour for our anniversary. We took advantage of the priced fixed menu(Tues/Wed/Thur 5pm-10pm ~ Sun 4pm-9pm. Prix Fixe $42.95 p/person) that had great choices. I had the escargot appetizer and my wife had the crab meat strudel. Both were extraordinary. For the main course we both had the Beef au poivre . It was delicious. We had the apple strudel for desert it also was incredible. Our server was very professional and very charming. The Chef came out and asked us if we enjoyed our meal, this restaurant is a real class act.I would highly recommend Latour!

Four course price fixe meal on Sunday evening. Every course was perfectly prepared and presented. Fallen cheese soufflé and seafood crepe were excellent as apps.
Frisée salad and French onion soup were tops.
Entrees of short ribs and steak au poivre presented on hot plates and the finest.
Pear tart and apple strudel completed a perfect culinary evening.
Priceless !!!! And yet value laden meal. Can’t miss.
