Cepae La Parisienne Bellevue
Join us and enjoy our extensive wine collection, with more than 120 wines by the glass and by the taste.
intimate quiet environment. Pleasant and helpful staff. Menu is simple yet well executed. One person thought his Croque Monsieur was tiny compared to what he had in the past. The other had no complaints. The duck burger one with seared fois gras the other without was a little slippery and messy, hard to hold and keep the contents within the roll but very tasty. The 5th had the champignon and ate it all without complaint. We also ordered the 7 cheeses with slices of baguette. Very tasty and we couldn't eat all of it because we were satisfied with the mains-- meant to take leftovers of that home but accidentally left behind. Called and the box held until I could pick it up the next day (early)
The wine list was extensive but we didn't read through it. We took recommendations for wine. Tasting portions were great to have for those who wanted to taste and make a further selection from that and for those who can't drink much without consequences.
Desserts were limited to what was left in the patisserie. Creme brûlée, Paris Washington (a variation of the Brest), and a flaky berry tart all great tasting and with appropriate texture.
Great new wine bar/ restaurant in Bellevue. Very knowledgeable about their extensive wine list. They focus on glass pours, which allows you to taste a lot of different wines. They also have tasting prices, to create a custom tasting flight. The food is very good, onion soup is great, the duck burger is tasty and the fromage plate is very generous. Check it out! Support this great new French restaurant!
We visited Cepae for a special birthday and were treated to an interesting and unique wine experience. We each tried small tastes of several different wines with good advice from the wine stewards and then enjoyed French bistro fare that was delicious. Although there was a noisy child nearby, the attentive friendly staff made up for the noise and we enjoyed a memorable evening.
Fantastic night in a casual atmosphere.
The atmosphere is relaxed, inviting and conducive to conversation. The food is delicious and well priced. The only glitch is that as a relatively new place, the service is uneven. Will certainly return and hope that they will iron out this issue
Only gave 3 star for food as I had to. Didn't try any food, just the wine
This is my new favorite place in Bellevue. It has a great food and an amazing wine selection. I cannot believe the amazing wines that you can sample and then take home for such a reasonable price. I went this Saturday with 10 of us to celebrate a birthday. We had amazing service and each wine had a great story. It's wonderful to know how they source their wines. I liked it so much I took home 5 bottles. In fact, there are so many options, I am dropping some wine clubs so I can come back and buy more from their endless supply!
Great add to the east side. Love the wine selection. Bartenders were great.
best French place in Seattle! loved the service, the food and the ambiance. A must
We love Cepae! The staff (shout out to Adam!) is amazing and will help you choose the perfect wine - even if it takes a few trial and error attempts! The charcuterie and desserts are to die for! The bottle of wine are very reasonably priced. The atmosphere is cozy and the outdoor area will be wonderful when spring comes!
Whether it’s a morning coffee, afternoon sandwich, or evening happy hour of wine and French delicacies, this place is the perfect place to be!
