Lovely food and lovely place. A little bit noisier than usual though - probably due to a big party next to us.

Modern take on French food. Loved that it was small plates so you can experience variety rather than traditional 3 courses. Phenomenal wine list and staff were very helpful in choosing and pairing wines. Lovely evening!

The food selection and quality is superbe, as well for vegetarians. The wine selection is very good, maybe missing good option around 35GBP.

Lovely neighbourhood restaurant - we love it. My only real complaint is that it is very expensive. Wine glass portions are poured and tiny. Food portions small for the money but very good.

Tapenade had no taste of olives - I get much better from my local deli. "Green salad" was entirely rocket. Fish and languoustines both good. Wine list by the glass limited, which was surprising given its branding.

Cepages is a neighbourhood gem that offers easy dining in a nice and relaxed space. I have been to the restaurant on several occasions and the food is generally very good, most recently however I noticed some dishes were not quite as excellent as before.

The service is generally friendly but again most recently the staff has been less helpful, this may be a one-off and I would be happy to forgive them if only the owners of the restaurant would realise that playing music at the volume they do here is no longer acceptable. Indeed, in a small restaurant like this, why play music at all? Just turn it off, I guarantee their turnover will increase overnight...

Should be prepared to take more stand up walk ins by the bar for a more local vibe but generally, brilliant.

Cosy, French wine bar with a marvellous selection of wines by the glass and bottle. The food is good but not everything on the menu is recommended. The camembert could do with a rehaul.
The staff are professional and attentive with good knowledge of the wines. I thoroughly enjoy coming here. Great atmosphere - another little Notting Hill gem.

Hospitable and amenable staff. Quick and friendly staff despite us arriving half an hour late.

The food was sublime. Snails were tender, croque monsieur was tasty, the lamb and chicken were fabulous cooked and the langoustine and pork belly was a belter. Pleasant and well-priced wines and Champagnes.

Give it a go. We will definitely be back

We had the best food at Cepages, we shared five different dishes between two ppl,they were all faboulus.
The duck confit, beef cheeks, beetroot , gnocchi with lardon & rocket and the veloute, all prepared and cooked to the highest standard. Very nice and service minded staff with good recommendation and knowledge about the food and wine. Nice and cosy wine bistro, good ambiance would definetly go back and can warmly recommend Cepages to anybody.

My fourth visit, still excellent. Highly recommend letting them give advice on the wines, most of which are direct from the vineyard. The pommes dauphines are fabulous, as is everything really.

Called to confirm and called to inform the restaurant we would be a 30 mins late for a 9pm booking. Arrived to find we didn’t have a table. And this was not the first time! On our prior visit (a couple months ago) we arrived ten minutes late and the restaurant had given away our table. Cepages needs to respect booking customers more than this! Otherwise service, wine and food was very good.
