Excellent dinner and service. An oasis in a bad resort. Wine list to die for. Very creative recipes best I’ve been to in nj since the old whitehouse inn.

Went for an early dinner on a Sunday and was warmly greeted at the door. For appetizers my husband ordered the Octopus special and I ordered the seared Foie Gras. Both were excellent. For dinner, my husband ordered the Cassoulet, which was a special, and...I ordered the Beef Wellington. I was very disappointed with the Beef Wellington. While the beef was perfectly cooked, it was more like a sandwich with a piece of puffed pastry on the top and bottom, rather than being wrapped in puffed pasty. Also, there was no taste foie gras or mushroom duxelle. My husband's Cassoulet, while very tasty, lacked the crusty top. Unfortunately, not what we expectedMore

We had high hopes for #1 restaurant in a foodie town. Our hopes were dashed. Flat souffle did not have much flavor. Pork tenderloin would have been at home in a roadside diner, though I shouldn't insult diners. Chocolate mousse wasn't very chocolatey. We could...have gone to a good restaurant instead!More

My wife and I read the reviews and decided this place was worth a try. The decor was light blue with vintage drapery try hard to be a French country cottage. We both started with the appetizer special which was an herb Fettuccini with Mushrooms...and crab meat which was good. The brad brought to the table was a crusty french baguette with cinnamon swirl. I do not know why. My wife ordered the Salmon with horseradish that came with mashed potatoes and a few shred of carrot. She was expecting it to be flavorful with a little kick. It was bland. I had the Beef Wellington which was what I would call deconstructed (not typical). This was not bad with mashed potatoes and vegetables. It was good but not outstanding in my book. The service was good this is BYOB. We were not impressed. This is no Balthazar.More

I came here with my wife for my birthday celebration and had a wonderful time. The restaurant is hard to find since it is literally next to railroad tracks beyond where you would think the street ends. When we got there, the place was empty...on a Friday night at 7 so I wondered how it was. By 7:30 it was packed and I was relieved. The restaurant is small and cozy with many two tops. Dress is casual. Another good thing is that it is a BYO establishment. The menu is a mix between classic and nouveau French cuisine. My only criticism of the restaurant are the bright headlights shining is your eyes from the people waiting for the trains. to arrive. Cafe curtains would alleviate that. I had a fallen cheese soufflé that was yummy and my wife had goat cheese ravioli on a fig balsamic reduction. She had the salmon that was a touch overdone but otherwise good. I had my all time winter favorite, cassoulet. Dessert was a surprise, creme brûlée with a candle. All of the people sang to me which was very thoughtful. I thought the bill was reasonable for the experience and the BYO savings made a difference. It being Ridgewood, good luck finding parking.More

Went this past Saturday night with 6 people for a 60 birthday. We were seated right away. The waiter saw we had champagne and immediately went to get chilled flutes without us asking. That started what became a wonderful night filled with amazing food, fantastic...service, and over 2 hrs of laughter. Had the seafood crepe for appy and the crispy duck special for dinner. OMG!!!! There are no words! There wasn't one single plate that was not perfect! ( We all had something different). Do yourself a favor and go to this place. You will be extremely happyMore

I’ve been going to LaTour for a few years, so it’s about time I write a review. First of all, Patricia is THE BEST!! She always makes my mother and I feel so special when we come in. If you want the best service with...one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet, ask for her! Second, the minute you walk in, you feel like you’re transported to Provence. From the the decor to the music, it’s quintessentially French. Last but not least, the food is amazing!!! My mom and I always have the seafood crepe and wild mushroom appetizers, but you really can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. LaTour is definitely my go-to when in Ridgewood.More

Located next to the train station in downtown Ridgewood, LaTour is a small restaurant with a Gallic accent serving solid, classic French food. I understand the restaurant has been there for decades. The decor is a bit tired but the food is well prepared and...seasoned. The wait staff was very pleasant and attentive. The “real deal” is the price fixed, four course, menu available Tuesday through Thursday. As a la carts menu is also available.More

Arguably the best restaurant in Ridgewood, we chose Latour as THE place to celebrate our anniversary. We had been there twice before with friends, so we knew what to expect. Well worth the price (entrees are about $10 more than most other non-casual places).

Quaint restaurant in Ridgewood . A taste of Paris! Delicious filet mignon in a puff pastry. Friendly staff and a BYOB. Best tasting French food in Bergen County.
