According to the reviewers' opinions, waiters offer good parfait, ice cream and profiteroles here. You will hardly forget delicious port wine, champagne or beer that you can taste. Great juice, espresso or red tea are worth trying here.

A Michlen star restaurant with great food. It has both vegetarian and non-vegetarian options.
I read some of the reviews and can see why there could be negative ones. It's certainly expensive. For two people (only I was drinking) it came out to just under $950. It certainly has its hit and misses depending on the course. It certainly takes a while to sit down and eat. And lastly they stuck me in the basement.That being said, my gf and I ordered one of each menu and this deserves all 3 stars. It is without a doubt one of the most excellent meals I've had. I ate at Eleven Madison Park a year ago and Arpege was far superior. We decidedly liked one menu more (fish and meat) but the vegetable had some amazing highlights (beet burger was remarkable). I loved the pigeon, the potato and black truffle dish and the salad most. The salad was probably the best salad I've ever tasted. It was simple but brilliant. Both desserts were exquisite as wellIf you have the cash I highly suggest it. But there are so many wonderful options I can't fault you for tryingbti get more bang for your buck.
My husband took me to Arpege on Monday, February 4, for a special treat to celebrate my 70th birthday. The restaurant is lovely with Lalique decor and a warm, intimate setting. I have a very serious allergy to all kind of nuts, and before we ordered, I informed the waiter that I could tolerate no nuts and if that I inadvertently ordered something with nuts to let me know and I would order something else. He assured me that would be no problem and the chef would work around my allergy.We each ordered the vegetarian tasting menu. I should have been more concerned when the server brought a course with horse chestnuts. I reminded them, and they removed the dish. Later in the evening, my stomach started to feel very strange. I tried to hide it, as I didn't want my husband to think anything was wrong with the special night he had planned. About half way through dinner I felt very ill and raced downstairs to the bathroom (very inadequate for a restaurant of this calibre) and was sick to my stomach. I returned to the table determined to tough it out. Fifteen minutes later I was so ill that I couldn't make it down the stairs and had to run out the front door of the restaurant where I was again very ill. At this point, I could no longer hide the situation from my husband. Like the gentleman he is, he quietly informed our waiter that there must have been some form of nut in the early courses of the dinner, in order to generate such a reaction. The waiter replied that he would check again with the chef. He returned to the table and said I must me mistaken. He also offered no reduction for the unpleasantness of the evening. I strongly counsel anyone with a serious nut allergy to avoid Arpege. And, the coup de grace, our first cocktail, champagne, was so flat it had no bubbles. It was our mistake for not bringing it to the waiter's attention. Believe me, it will never happen again.Ellen Lee, Indianapolis, Indiana USA
