“Gay friendly? not so much.......”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2013

My partner and I are in Vail to celebrate our 30th anniversary and enjoying the finest dining establishments Vail has to offer. The food was great and the service was great. My issue came when I couldn't help noticing being ignored as the manager strolled the restaurant. He visited each of the other 3-5 occupied tables in the establishment, otherwise stood around the rest of the time. As a same sex couple this is fortunately not something we're faced with much any more, but obviously it is still ignorantly around. At about 20% occupancy it is glaringly obvious we were purposely avoided, I have to say this is not a gay friendly restaurant.

Happy Anniversary! I'm so happy to hear you enjoyed your meal and service, but equally unhappy to hear your overall experience was less than perfect. I can only hope the intention was to not bother you during your celebration. Please know all are welcome at La Tour and we are extremely sorry you felt anything other than comfortable. I have asked my General Manager, Thomas Gutherie to respond to you as well. I hope you'll consider a return visit to La Tour when you visit Vail. -Chef & Owner Paul Ferzacca

“A jem in Vail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

My wife and i had high hopes for this lovely place and were not disappointed. Starting with a cheese plate that was amazing, we moved on to lamb and some fish. We were very happy with the quality and would be back when we get back to Vail.

“Consistently wonderful”

We've eaten at La Tour quite a bit in Vail over the past two years. The menu is consistently excellent, with unique offerings and combinations. Delicious, and family friendly in addition to being elegant and sophisticated.

“Amazing restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

Last week my husband and I had the ultimate eating pleasure of dining at La Tour. The restaurant exudes elegance with pleasing modern art gracing its walls and attractive tableware, including a bronze mini-sculpture on each table. Service was perfect. We chose to start with their truffled French onion soup, not to be missed, then proceeded on to a pork osso bucco, with meat that melted in one's mouth, and the salmon, which was prepared with a covering of pork belly, brussel sprouts (the best I have ever had), and mushrooms. Portions were very adequate, and unfortunately, we didn't have room for dessert. Patrons nearby also were very pleased with their choices, and we are going to return soon to experience some of them.

“Lucky to find this one”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 21, 2013

My wife and I wanted a nice dinner but didn't know where to go in Vail. We looked through some local magazines and decided to try La Tour. We are so glad we did. Luckily for us, we went on a night where all dinners were $20! Add that to a wine selection that had some 1/2 off specials and we felt we had hit the jackpot. The dinner was excellent. I had a trout dish and my wife had a beef dish. The service was top notch and we really had a good time. Of note, you really need a reservation to this place. Plenty of people tried to walk in and had a hard time getting in (but eventually did).
