Tipping High End Restaurants in Paris

Hi Parigi,

I am heading to Paris tomorrow and still confuse about the tipping issue. Did research online and some internet articles recommend 10% in Paris. I know tipping is a personal thing but would like to know local custom. Similar to above, I will be having lunch at L'Arpege and dinner at Chez L'Ami Jean. Do you tip extra if you do tasting menu where more courses are served? I am not a drinker so probably one glass of wine per meal. What is standard tip for the sommelier?

Thank you very much for your help!!
