On several ocasion in the past have I had very pleasant lunches and dinners at L'Arsenal. Impeccable service and this time was no exception. After the mandatory coupe de champagne a classic Oeuf en meurette with a glass of red Burgundy opend the proceedings, and they were continued with a nice... read more

L'Arsenal is in a lovely building just around the corner from St Epvre. Our party enjoyed veal and polenta cake, stuffed chicken and steak fillet with sweet potatoes Lorrain. All good.Great friendly service from both the waitress and the somelier. A complimentary Amuse Bouche was also enjoyed, and we shared a great dessert based around beetroot. Recommended.

Mixed feelings. Service and style were perfect and the food is beautifully presented but about half of our tables dishes missed the mark somewhat. Entrees were all beautiful as was the veal fillet main but the other main courses were a little underwhelming as was the peach milles feuilles. Swordfish was cooked rare with no suggestion it would be served... More

A great restaurant that is small but personal. Don't be in a hurry as the service has only one steady speed, but it is very personal and friendly. The menu is somewhat limited, but the food is prepared to order and everything is fresh. We had the shrimp and crab ravioli for an appetizer and it was fantastic. For the... More

What can I say? This experience was a total treat from beautiful table linens, lots of little thoughtful details and accents, a varied menu with wine suggestions (by the glass and reasonably priced in my mind) for each food selection, attentive, professional service and delicious food! There were lovely little 'extras' before the meal, in between the courses and at... More

Situated in a quiet square 10 minute's walk from Stanislas Place and near the Duke of Lorraine's palace, this delightful restaurant is strongly recommended. The welcome is warm and the room is spacious so one does not feel crowded. A great plus: there is no background musak. Service was fast and courteous. The food was absolutely wonderful: each dish seemed... More

One is greeted warmly at L'Arsenal and the evening happily continues in that vein. The room is relaxing and attractive, the staff is very helpful and charming, and the food and wine outstanding. This was one of the best meals we had during our recent 2 1/2 weeks in France. We would go back in a flash!

What a lovely place to eat! A smallish restaurant where you don't have to shout to make yourself heard, with ample room for all the tables so you are not eating from your neighbour's plate. Perhaps one reason for the relative quiet in the restaurant is simply the quality of the food and wine -- people stop talking to enjoy... More
