Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

An absolute delight from start to finish. A fantastic selection of wine which you would expect in a French wine bar. Friendly and knowledgeable staff and a really homely and pleasant atmosphere. And the food was wonderful. Small plates done with exquisite style and panache....Our favourites - the monkfish and squid ink risotto and the simply divine pommes dauphines. Reasonably priced as well. My only regret is that it isn't nearer to home. I'd be there every Friday night otherwise.More

What a wonderful hidden gem and just round the corner - I have frequented cepage(s) on many occasions over the years and it never disappoints. The ambience is superb for a quiet low key drink and chat or a romantic dinner/date or catching up with...friends. The menu always delivers quality produce and presentation and flavours are superb. Charcuterie and fromage selection was delicious as always. The staff are friendly, warm and welcoming and knowledgeable and give you time and space to enjoy your evening but are very attentive when required at the same time which makes the experience even more enjoyable. 5 stars and long live cepage(s) what a super special spot.More

We had the most memorable meal at Cepages Wine Bistro. There were 6 of us and we had a lovely table in the center of the restaurant and drank gorgeous wine! Our server was very helpful. The menu is a bit challenging - I realized...it's small plates, so with our big group we needed a bit of guidance on what to order and how much- our server made great suggestions and we had an eclectic mix of great dishes that were more than enough for everyone. The restaurant is just charming and we couldn't have enjoyed ourselves more. It seems like a little local gem of an establishment. We walked from our hotel in Paddington and it wasn't far at all. I'd love to come back with my husband next time I'm in London. One last note - you definitely need a reservation - it's not a large place.More

We found this little Bistro by chance. It only serves small plates so it is like a French Tapas, but with bigger plates. Had the Tapenade, prawn, snails, beetroot salad and based Camembert. All excellent, particulsrly the beetroot salad and the Tapenade. The staff were...welcoming friendly and helpful without smothering you. There was a great ambience. My only slight criticism was the prawn dish which had two prawns only. Otherwise highly recommended.More

Cepage has the rudest staff imaginable. We used to come here pre-CoVid and it was a sweet local restaurant. The food used to be fine and it’s a relaxed atmosphere. However, the staff now are exceptionally discourteous and arrogant. You will be rushed. You will...be treated like cattle. Avoid this restaurant completely.More

I lived nearby and reguarly visited here. The steak is amazing, the potatoes are amazing, and the ambience with the little lights and brick is amazing. Its one of the best places in the area. Great place!

We booked this restaurant & were treated appallingly by staff that we left. Prices are exhorbitant for this tapas style food meaning you need at least 8 dishes per person but the sheer rudeness and racist behaviour of staff means I can’t recommend this restaurant...at all. They simply need to shut as they don’t value & appreciate their customers.More

I will never forgive myself for living Notting Hill for years and only discovering this place now! Gorgeous venue, fabulous wines and impeccable food. Staff attentive and quick to refill wine and water without being intrusive. Highly recommend the pommes dauphines and stuffed squid (and...the duck and chicken boulangere, and the camembert etc. etc. etc.!)More

We booked having heard about this rather special place at a wedding in France. We were curious and pining for fine wine and food. We were not disappointed! You can eat a little or a lot and everything we tried was well executed and creative....The wine choice was excellent. Something for everyone. The staff were charming and attentive so all in all a wonderful new find.More

Unfortunately our night was ruined by an incredibly rude waitress (blonde lady) who said she was the manager. While a number of our dishes were nice (and we have been 10+ times before) unfortunately one was very poor, overcooked and burnt. We sent it back...only to be told that “all the staff had tasted it and we were wrong”. Customer service par excellence!More
