The food quality was excellent, but a 23% tip that is automatically added to the bill of larger parties is excessive.

Our most recent visit to La Tour was a terrific experience: from being greeted and seated by the gracious, beautful young hostess (OMG I love how she does her eyes) thru to our delicious dinner. This restaurant has ambience .... trendy tunes, artwork, great lighting. Combine that with our handsome & efficient server, some fine food & wine, VOILA! a perfect evening.
There's a reason this restaurant continues to pull the peeps in. Actually, there are several reasons. Go see for yourself.

Everything is good about the place but the attitude. These guys so totally need to relax. Otherwise, nice, sort of out of the way, intimate, a good place for a date. Bring your whole wallet!

I appreciated the excellent level of service professionalism. As a hotel/restaurant consultant pre-retirement, I am pretty picky about any dining experience. La Tour met and exceeded my expectations. I had not been to dinner there for several years having moved away, but was pleased to see it is still one of the very best in Vail Village. Manager Thomas Gutherie runs an impressive operation. He personally thanked us for dining and took time to speak with us. Bryant was our server and provided an excellent dining experience. We recommend the sole and the osso buco, Both were complex, interesting presentations with wonderful flavors and perfect plate presentations. I was most impressed with the speed of service as the entrees arrived within a few minutes of ordering. Chef Paul Frezacca is an exceptional culinarian and I recommend La Tour without hesitation to anyone with a discerning palate.

Outstanding meal at LaTour! Started with Oysters on the half shell and Lobster Bisque, next course Petrale Sole Meuniere and Grilled Skuna Bay Salmon. For dessert we both had the Milk Chocolate Pot De Creme. My husband said it was the best salmon he has every tasted!
We will be back soon!
