Chef Alain Passard is one of the most welcoming and friendly chefs you will ever meet. He served the best vegetables I have ever tasted (the signature dish was amazing). The freshness and taste has been unmatched from every meal I had since my visit to L'Arpege. Unsure whether this is a good or bad thing for me. Highly sophisticated... More

The food was real tasteful and we had some surprices from the chef. The service is very good and the staff very kind. That I didn't like is that there isn't the menu in english and we had to have someone to tell us and explain us many times about it. It isn't so comfortable to listen the menu and... More

everything vegetarian degustation should be. Lovely service and attention to detail. My only criticism would be the speed at which the dishes arrived. Ideally, I would need more time to savour and recover for more enjoyment.

I had a sensational birthday lunch here and can't wait to go back again next time I'm in Paris. Flawless service from the moment we stepped into the restaurant - this is how it should be done. We felt totally spoiled and pampered by all the waiting staff even though we were going for the cheaper lunch tasting menu and... More

Amazing Food and amazing very knowledgeable service. Every dish, every bite a delight - the vegetables were astounding. However,- so was the bill. You will have to calculate around 250 to 300 Euros for a starter plus maincourse and desert without alcohol... If you like food that much it is worth it. There is a small and very rustique dining...

Arpege's (formerly Archestrate) chef Alain Passard is probably the friendliest and most welcoming of all of the 3* restaurants we visited in April. He comes out to greet all the guests and checks in frequently. This made me wonder who was minding the kitchen. Of the 8 3* restaurants we visited, Arpege has held its 3 stars the longest, since...

We had our Christmas lunch here and were not disappointed... From the "amuse-bouche" to the desserts all was perfect.. Yes Alain Passard is known for his vegetable preparations but he did not forget some fish, lobster ,... The old Comte cheese with white truffle was more than perfect... Good wine list but not enough half bottle. We'll be back...

We had the vegetarian degustation and every single course was a delightful shock to the palate (except the leek icecream palate cleanser)! We are glad we selected the lunch option - we were there from 12.30-4pm. The portions sizes and the number of courses meant that we were so full by the end of the meal, but we just couldn't... More

This has been one of the most wonderful meals we have had in several years. French cuisine in another level.
