My husband an I visited this restaurant at the end of June. The interior decoration is beautiful without being overly fussy. The service was first class and the meal delicious. Prices are extremely reasonable for a Michelin star restaurant. Highly recommend.

La Tour is a small restaurant. While ties and jackets may not be required one would not be out of place if they were wearing this. Men with jackets. Women with dresses or dress slack. Not casual but not too, too formal.
