    The ambiance is lovely, the food extremely authentic and delicious from appetizers to dessert! And the staff also very attentive and friendly. All restaurants should have staff like Joe and Carlos. We had a wonderful experience and loved everything. And it sure felt as though we were in Paris. We will come back for sure and next time bring our family and friends too. And we will recommend LeTour to everyone we know. Thank you for an awesome evening!

    We arrived minutes before our 5:30 reservation and were told to wait in the bar as staff was in a meeting. Service in the bar was warm and friendly and the warm and friendly disappeared when we were shown to our table. The waiter and trainee were impersonal at best and continued that way throughout the dinner. For starters, we had Salad Lyonnais and Duck Liver Mousse, which were excellent although the salad could have been greener. Our Steak and Frites and Tangine Chicken were fabulous, expertly prepared and certainly warmer than the waitstaff. The restaurant is an obvious success and will do well although time will tell on the lack of friendliness by the waitstaff and owner.

    This restaurant is attractive and the vibe is good - bar area, restaurant etc. Service was excellent, Ben is a professional with a lot of experience. The kitchen, however, needs to raise its game Salade Lyonnaise - some confusion in the kitchen as what is the difference between a lardon and a crouton. Mine were all croutons. The Pissaladiere had an authentic taste though very poorly plated and an absence of anchovies. Oven roasted watercress and haricots verts. A great concept but contrary to what what written on the menu - lots of haricots and little watercress. In quizzing the server regarding the lentil risotto with the monkfish one would hope for lentilles de puy but from his desciption probably not. The baguette was an unusual offering today but very welcome. Cocktail (Old Fashioned") was well made and great. A steak frites on the menu at $52 is outrageous. In France it would be half that. If you bill your restaurant as French, then the chef has work to do.

    Everyone enjoyed their meals. I noted in my reservation that we were celebrating birthday and the waiters brought us Prosecco and a non-alcoholic version for the member of my party who was not drinking- this was a nice thoughtful touch. I had the steak frites which was okay but nothing special. The mille feuille however was fantastic.

    La tour is located in a large room with very high ceilings, which makes it conversational friendly. The food that we had was delicious. My wife had the muscles which she raved about and I had skate wing which I hadn’t had for a long time which was crispy and very tasty with a sauce that imparted a great taste to the fish (which is usually quite bland). This is a return to restaurant and would be highly recommended to friends.

    Our group of four chose mainly from the more limited Moroccan options on the menu. I wish there were a few other Moroccan choices, because we each really liked what we had (chicken tagine for me, lamb couscous for 2 others). Appetizers were also nicely prepared. The dessert selection was a little odd -- I chose the CARAMELIZED APPLE “TARTE” CAKE which had very little apple in it. It was heavier than I needed after 2 other courses. But overall, we all enjoyed the meal very much and would return. A note on value: post-pandemic, everything seems over-priced and I was a little stunned that our tab came to over $200 per couple with the tip, but I would go there again, just sparingly.

    This was for a birthday celebration and it was a very nice treat. Appreciate the help with choosing a bottle of wine, and for asking us how to pace our dinner. Monkfish and lentils were delicious…we wanted more. Same with Lyonnaise salad. Duck liver mousse was creamy. We prefer less creamy. Apple tart dessert was perfect and paired well with amaro. Can’t wait to come back and try other items on menu!

    What a lovely space, very warm and inviting. We were greeted quickly and asked about our table preference and seated immediately. The snails and onion tart were perfect starters and very delicious. We followed with the steak frites, skate, smash burger and chicken. All very well prepared and thoughtfully presented. We were too full for dessert but the offerings were very tempting. Nicely focused cocktail and wine menu. Great pairings with our courses. I believe Mary was our server and she was so thoughtful and knowledgeable about the menu and made some great recommendations that felt honest and personal. Based on the constant stream of guests arriving and how quickly the tables filled, I think Letour has a bright future.

    This was the second time that I have visited Le Tour with a group of friends. Both times, I really enjoyed the drinks, appetizers and my entrées. My group did as well. My one suggestion would be the presentation of the chocolate mousse dessert. I understand the desire “to keep it simple”, however, the presentation on the plate was most unappealing. Too bad, because it was delicious. The cherries were a nice touch. Everything else is so lovingly prepared, I think you could do better on the dessert details. Can’t wait to come back.

    Beautiful decor, we dined early on a Sunday at the bar. Goat cheese tartine - nothing creative or interesting. Dry, hard focaccia bread. Moroccan specialty, Lamb with couscous was hugely disappointing: tough meat in a barely flavored broth with carrots, tons of chick peas and a little couscous. Mussels with harissa however, were great. No one returned to ask if we liked our food. Water glasses were never refilled. Meringue Pavlova dessert was so dry, we couldn't even cut it. Dessert for 2 was delivered with one spoon, indicative of service overall: unexpectedly below par.

    LeTourResponded on March 2, 2023lori, so sorry you were disappointed. couple things i would like to know so we can do better next time. did you not have a carafe of water on your table? this is our protocol. we do this so guests can pour their own water. also when desserts are shared we are always serve it with a spoon to share. do you mean you were not given silverware to eat it with? as for the cous cous and the server not checking back. i will look into this immediately. thank you! amy

    Went for an anniversary dinner. Received a “house drink” which was a little shot glass of champagne. The bread and butter and Dijon were great and all tasted homemade. The Moroccan chickpea salad was fantastic. So delicious and unlike anything I’ve had before with such simple ingredients. Entrees we’re also delicious— we got the skate wing which was buttery and light as well as the double smash burger. Frites we’re very pale and not crispy — needed more time. We decided to end our meal with something sweet, but this was actually the worst part of the meal. The apple cake was simply not good. It was super dense, dry, and the crème fresh tasted as if it had gone bad. Frustrating end to the meal given that everything else was outstanding. Would definitely come back but would be sure to skip the dessert next time.
