We had high expectations for this 3* legendary place and ordered a vegetarian menu, which the chef is famous for. Out of 7 courses, 3 were great, 2 kind of worked, 1 so-so but passable, and 1 pretty bad. The setting, plates and food arrangements...More

The chef needs to check his ego at the door. This restaurant does not deserve more than 1 star, if any. I have dined in Michelin-starred restaurants around the world, and definitely appreciate refined cuisine, beautiful presentations, and fine service. L'Arpège FAILED with all 3...More
