Arrived soaking wet from a rain storm and the staff were very helpful and welcoming. We went for the Gardeners Menu which was superb and not totally vegetables based. We were also offered an additional dish where we went for the lobster. Please be aware that this is an additional charge to the Gardeners Menu. The lobster was magnificent but Gardeners Menu would have been sufficient for a superb lunch. Great atmosphere and definitely worth knocking off your list of the great restaurants to visit.

Out of this world experience with the main dishes. The lunch menu is worth it - lets you try the signature dishes at an affordable price. Decor, service, and desserts (the tomates confites and the millefeuille) where not the highlight.

L'Arpege is the 38th three michelin start restaurant that I have visited and faced with a Euro 480 meat and vegetable set menu, had a lot to live up to. Thankfully, I felt that the overall experience justified the price tag. Vegetables were elevated to equal importance with the meat or fish they were paired with. A number of the fully vegetarian dishes were superb and the lack of fish/animal protein in those dishes was inconsequential. Although this was an 11 course tasting menu, some of the courses were the same size as a la carte portions at many other restaurants. My advice would be to arrive with a good appetite and not to fill up on bread. I enjoyed every one of my 11 courses, save for a millefeuille, but to be honest, I can't recall any millefeuille that I have enjoyed so this is probably personal taste. I would rate this in my top 5 dining experiences and in my top 3 French meals. I plan on returning to L'Arpege at the next opportunity.

The price of our meals was worth it! The history of the restaurant and the ability for Chef Passard to continue to be dedicated is quite amazing. He also came by to each table to greet us and make sure we enjoyed our courses. And the food was just phenomenal. What really impressed us were the amount of courses that were vegetarian, not just for my wife who had ordered fixed vegetarian menu. In fact I had the regular fixed menu and quite a bit of the courses were vegetarian and my wife was able to try some of them as well. The wait staff were of course very helpful. They made our night even more enjoyable. Overall just a great dining experience that we will always cherish.

We came here excited after having seen the Chef's Table episode and left bitterly disappointed. First, it's expensive, very expensive at 500 Euros per person on the tasting mneu and with wine for us, 700 Euros per head. Second, it was, for us, not 60-80 vegetables and we'd expected but like 95%. In what was roughly a ten course tasting menu, we had 3 oz of monkfish and a egg yolk. Everything else was a vegetable. Some were amazing, most were just good. No pasta courses. No meat. One fish with one lump of fish. We were hoping for veggie-weighted balanced meal and got a veggie meal. They were even light on the bread. Third, the service. After a very strong start it just faded away toward the end. We don't know why or what happened, but in a start where an empty glass couldn't stay on the table 60 seconds, we had to ask twice and it took 20 minutes to get the check at the end. I would not come here again, ever. Bitter disappointment after being so excited to come, thinking I knew the story better, and seeing what's effectively a vegetarian restaurant that once in a while tips it hat to fish. Too far, too extreme, from the composition of the menu to the infusion instead of tea at the end.

We went to L'Arpège on the 29th Nov for lunch, this is our first time to visit L'Arpège, so the staff suggested us to try the tasting menu, it will be primarily served with vegetables and filled with surprising dishes. We appreciated this is vegan-inspired menu. The ingredients is very simple and inexpensive. The dishes are also fairly mediocre, every dishes taste like the same there is not much differnaitiom in term of cooking techniques. Pumpkin soup and radish with rice are disrespectful for guest expecting from a three-star restaurant. There have been repeat use of the same ingredients, for instance , the beetroot and the pumpkin. The waitress told us there would be seafood, what we got is only 3 clams meanwhile we saw the other table ordering the same menu is served with clayfish. Given the reputation of three Michelin starred spots, we have expected so much more at the end of the day it is a 200 euro tasting menu. We left the restaurant with disappointment. Fortunately we had also visiting other stared restaurants in paris, otherwise we would be very upset. Comparing to other three or two starred restaurants we tried in Paris, L'Arpège was not a pleasant dining experience.

Four family members ate lunch at Arpege for my 70th birthday! It was an incredible and memorable experience. The are several choices for lunch ( need reservations) we had the priz fixe choice which can be fish, meat or vegetarian. Over a four hour time period we had many memorable courses served by exceptional wait staff. The wine choices were in a large 4 inch wide manual. The decor was beautiful, the vegetables and offerings exquisite. Seating indoors and Health Pass required. If you have the opportunity to make a reservation and eat at Arpege it will be memorable!

A masterclass in what can be achieved using vegetables and fruit. The lunch menu dishes were technically perfect, ranging from subtle, crisp and delicate to robust and intense, with great depth of flavour and complexity. The value for money criticism l see online...how can he charge 180 euros for vegetables; is simply misplaced. The time and work, not to mention the technical skill involved more than justifies the price. To put it into context, we have been paying 120 to 140 euros for one star Michelin meals in Marseilles with similar prices locally. That aside, its been a real eye opener, even for a working Chef. My professional curiosity got the better of me as l couldn't resist sampling the latest Passard creation....one combining pigeon and lamb within the one rack. Great quality lamb and the best pigeon I've ever eaten uniquely assembled and perfectly cooked together. An outstanding dish. It is a substantial lunch over three and a half hours, though our pacing preference were checked on arrival. Hugely generous as well. The kitchen added a terrific Dover sole dish to the meal. Come hungry! Wine list is exceptional as one expects and our sommelier hugely helpful and a pleasure to deal with. This is something everyone should experience at least once.

I recently had dinner at Arpège and was immediately impressed with how simple ingredients can be elevated to haute cuisine with the talent of a kitchen with great technical skill. The freshest of vegetables are used and are transformed into sophisticated dishes expressing their natural flavours to their full potential, this is pure cuisine at its finest. Bread was simple but excellent flavour and bite. The renowned Arpège egg used the freshest of eggs and had the perfect balance of hot and cold and sweetness and acidity from the syrup and vinegar used. Tomato gaspacho was refreshing and the mustard ice cream complemented it well. Next was a vegetable sushi, the rice perfect with gloss and the unami flavour from the olive sauce was reminiscent of soy sauce, I thought this was a clever Mediterranean style take on sushi. The ravioles had perfect texture and flavour from the vegetables, the consommé had great depth of vegetable flavour and crystal clear clarity. Next was a collection of beautiful tomatoes and served similar to a carpaccio, these were fresh and perfectly seasoned. The gratin was delightful and had lovely sweetness from the onions and deep savoury from the parmesan. There was then a wonderful soup with a foam like rosemary flavoured cream, this was simple but one of the best soups I can recall ever eating. Then a nice crunchy salad of green beans came. There was then some cooked vegetable courses, including a dish that included charred vegetables with shavings of parmesan, which may seem simple again but was delicious. The main was a choice of fish, meat or vegetarian. Perfect as one would expect, served with fantastic sauce. Desserts were fabulous, including a choux bun with flower petals and caramel sauce which was divine. We ended the meal with coffee and some lovely little fresh fruit tarts. Naturally, if one is vegetarian then the restaurant caters to this with ease and it will be one of the best meals you’ve ever had. Certainly the most suitable restaurant for vegetarians in Paris. Service was attentive and unobtrusive, perfectly discreet and professional The rattan chairs and the beautiful Lesage embroidered panels create a certain tranquil ambiance and evoke memories of sitting in a country garden on a summer day. The clientèle on the evening I had dinner was mostly French. This is a sophisticated dining venue and not at all a tourist trap that a previous reviewer described it as down below. I will most certainly return to Arpège in the not too distant future and I can’t recommend it enough to those looking for the finest natural cuisine on Earth.

Had high hopes for the place but was disappointed to be honest. I went for the a la carte so there might be dishes that i haven’t tried that would’ve blown me away. Stand out was the lobster dish which was really delicious but the other dishes were quite unmemorable. I was sat downstairs in a cave like area that was a little claustrophobic. But it could be that the lighting was too bright. If it was slightly more of a warm light i think the setting would actually be quite nice and romantic.

I've been to a lot of 3 and 2 star joints. Passard is hero of my hero David Kinch of Manresa. So I was very hopeful but trying to keep my expectations in check. But the whole experience was so beautiful and moving. Sharing the Jardin and Mer et Ter tasting menus is the way to go. They are both incredible and completely different. If I had to choose, it would be the jardin menu. The beet tartare was one of the best dishes of my life. There are no preset wine pairings. I asked the som to suggest a 3-4 glass arc for the meal and it was fantastic. I just told her how much I wanted to spend to give her some constraints. Perfection. Our main server Arthur is extremely passionate, knowledgeable and extremely good at his job, matching the energy of each table. He will interact with you in french or english or spanish! Amazing service and one of the best meals of my life. Thank you Arpege.

My husband and I dined at Arpege on 26th Jan to celebrate my 50th birthday. Unfortunately, the diner is memorable for its utter mediocrity. I was reluctant to try L'Arpege given its mixed reviews and should have followed my instinct. We dined at the one star Qui Plume la Lune the previous night and it was superb. I don't normally write reviews but would like to prevent others – especially vegetarians – from bothering with this tired lazy restaurant. I have been a vegetarian for 38 years and dined in many 3 star, 2 star and 1 star restaurants throughout the world so feel qualified to judge L'Arpege. The service was unfocused and casual to the point of sloppy (wine glasses were uncleared, service was not attentive etc.) The menu was what one might expect from a farm restaurant in that the produce was good quality but sloppy in presentation and not remotely creative in combination of flavours.The vegetarian selection of dishes (there is no vegetarian set menu option any more) did not cohere together. The chef seems to expect diners to be impressed by his egg starter that he's been serving for nearly 30 years. Haute vegetarian dining has moved on. Diners should too.

We enjoyed a fantastic lunch experience at this certainly not overrated restaurant with a group of friends. The food selection of the chef was superb, each dish tasted extraordinary and the wine menu was extensive and exquisit. The service was professional, although with the typical, unpleasant French distance or sometimes arrogance when dealing with foreigners (or non-French). The only thing missing during this experience was the visit of the chef. We think that it has become a common practice around top-rated chefs to make an appearance with their guests during lunch or dinner. But here ... not one person from the kitchen came to explain or receive feedback. This fact alone would have driven me to rate a point less ... but this would have been a too harsh rating for such food experience.

Recently, my girlfriend and I had the opportunity to dine at the renowned three Michelin star restaurant, Arpège in Paris. As vegetarian on that day, we were excited to explore the vegetarian-friendly options this establishment had to offer. However, our experience fell short of our expectations due to various factors that left us feeling dissatisfied and overcharged. Unwelcoming Start: Upon our arrival, we found the restaurant door closed, After peering inside, we noticed someone standing there, seemingly aware of our presence. To our surprise, the lady asked us to return 30 minutes later as the restaurant was "not ready" , leaving us feeling unwelcome. The Price Shock: While waiting, we decided to pass the time at a nearby café. Curiosity led us to browse the restaurant's website, where we discovered the exorbitant prices associated with each dish, particularly the set menu. The steep cost gave us pause and ultimately led us to contemplate canceling our reservation. Unfortunately, we discovered that the cancellation fee was a staggering 1000 Euros, leaving us feeling trapped. Underwhelming Main Course: Once seated and served, we found that the complimentary appetizers were the highlight of our meal. However, I was disappointed by the limited options for vegetarian main courses. The sole vegetarian dish I chose resembled the complimentary raw vegetable platter we had, albeit cooked and caramelized. Regrettably, it tasted more like a warm dessert rather than a satisfying savory main course. It was disheartening to leave my main dish unfinished, especially considering the hefty price tag of 155 Euros for a plate consisting of only ten small pieces of steamed vegetables. This is not the first time I had vegetarian dishes at 1 to 3 Michelin Star world wide. Lackluster Dessert Experience: Despite expressing our fullness to the server, we were persuaded to order two kinds of desserts to share. We requested half-sized portions, but even then, we were unable to finish a single dessert. The unappetizing experience with the desserts further contributed to our overall dissatisfaction. In an attempt to minimize waste, we decided to take the complimentary desserts with us and later gifted them to a homeless woman with a beautiful dog the following day. Unpleasant Surprise: As we were preparing to leave, to our astonishment, our table server opened a new bottle of water without seeking our consent. The additional charge for the unrequested water was an unwelcome surprise, further adding to our growing disappointment. Conclusion: Our experience at Arpège, though highly anticipated, turned out to be a letdown.

We did the vegetarian lunch tasting menu in April and it was impressive. We always wanted to try a 3-Michelin-star restaurant and the staff, the presentation of the food, and the wine were all excellent. The interior was beautiful, but we found the place to be very quiet and almost without ambiance. Overall, a good spot for lunch (the tasting menu is more affordable at lunch) but I would not pay the dinner tasting menu prices unless the ambiance was better.
