It was VERY expensive. We had dinner to celebrate my 50th birthday. They serve your main course in two "helpings" Everything was exceptional. Probably the most expensive single meal we've ever eaten (this was 7 years ago) -- I think we spent over $200 on one bottle of wine (wonderful and worth it). HOWEVER, the ambiance left us very cold. It seemed like an expense account place for concluding very high-powered international financial contracts. The service was quiet, efficient and sort of slickly professional. (In otherwords, NOT particularly romantic!)

My daughter and her husband had lunch there on their honeymoon and loved it. They thought everything was superb,from the food, service, ambience, etc.

The three of us had lunch at Le Grand Vefour a couple of years after that, and whereas they thought it was a lovely place, etc., they thought it couldn't compare with Arpege in terms of service.

All I know about it!

Thanks Lady, yeah I looked at the website I was thinking same thing in terms of ambience but I am going with a young female friend mainly for the food!

Grand thanks!
Someone in my office that grew up Paris gave me the same assessment. I was balancing the two but chose L'Arpege on food.

Hi S,

"Promise her anything, but give her Arpege".

LOL Ira

I wish someone was giving me Arpege

Going with a college student I am most likely footing the bit!
