We went looking for a vegetarian fine dining experience and while we met the most professional staff and drank the best wine we've ever had, our expectations on the food were not met. The food is served fresh - as it should be since the restaurant owns three farms - but ultimately, the dishes were slightly more creative preparations of... More

At $2400 for 4 people, no meal is worth that. And yes, we got gouged for the champagne too, but I think they charged $50 a glass. Waiters were very pretentious and unfriendly. 12 courses including a very bad lobster course. I had better meals in Paris at other restaurants. I'd skip this experience.

After testing several *** Michelin restaurants around the world, L'Arpege is clrealy the best. Let me explain why : 1. While others play with luxury products (lobster - caviar - foie gras), Alain Passard serves mainly vegetables. 2. You're already saying booooo vegetables ? Yes. The best experience in your fooding life. 3. They have their own farms where they... More

I have had the honor and privileged of eating at some of the greatest restaurants in the United States including Per Se, Meadowood, French Laundry, Le Bernadin, Jean George and Daniel and I can say that without a doubt L'Arpege is the greatest restaurant that I have ever been to. The food is surreal, the service approachable and professional, and... More

Arpege is a 3 Star Michelin star restaurant and ranked in 50 best restaurants each year. It is a vegetarian restaurant which sound interesting for that class restaurant. We are not fond of foie gras and we don't like raw fish and they are frequently served at other Michelin starred restaurants. That's why we booked a table at Arpege. As... More

Well, this is the single most expensive dinner I have ever hosted--5 people for $3400! Yes, we had great wines but nothing more than $250 per bottle. I would say the wine bill was around$1200 with the food being the balance ($2200/5=$440 per person). But, I "think" it was worth it. It was a once in a lifetime experience--just because... More

We were in Paris for just a day and were super lucky to get a space at l'Arpege. Being vegetarian, which can be a challenge in Paris, we were nervous about the fare. However all that was put to rest and we had one of the best meals ever. Definitely rate it in my Top 3 meal experiences in the... More

It is very hard to choose a michelin star restaurant in Paris. But we made a good choice. This is a place where the vegetarians can really enjoy the haut cusine.

After finding out Aprege was listed as a top 50 world restaurant, we made reservations for lunch months in advance for our Paris trip and we weren't disappointed. As we arrived, we were greeted warmly and immediately seated. Our server was wonderful and we were able to talk and joke with her. Nothing stuffy or unwelcoming about the service, which... More
