We had a lovely time at the restaurant. The service was excellent and the menu had a great selection. I particularly enjoyed the avocado and lime cheesecake.
Food and service great! Thanks. No rush as we were having a 'Catch up' and staff left us to it. Little dark but we managed.
Three of us had different dishes and all three cleaned our plates. Innovative healthy food thoroughly enjoyed. Staff were great friendly and helpful - we'll be back soon.
One of my favourite lunch spots in Edinburgh. Great service, food & coffee and cakes! Fun and relaxed atmosphere with attentive service even when busy!
Had a great experience at Checkpoint. Went on a Sunday evening for a relaxed girls night out at around 6:30, the place was quiet and we got a table by the main window. Service was quick and the girl serving us was extremely patient and nice. We had the house white wine which was OK (not expecting much for the price) and shared the mussels with chips with my friend. Our portion was big enough for two and one of my friend's starter was more like a main (laksa noodles I think), so ask before you order :) A great experience overall, would recommend it.
Checkpoint is currently struggling with new kitchen staff. We were warned the food would take a long time to arrive and the restaurant was far from full. The waiting staff were not wrong. The sea bass and cod dishes were good and the flat iron steaks OK but the chips need some serious work. Supposedly three times cooked, they were huge - more like quarter potatoes than chips - and completely failed to achieve the light fluffiness inside and crispiness outside that normally comes with such a pampered foodstuff. The main course bowl of chickpea and squash was also huge and so heavily spiced it ended up being bland and an insurmountable trial to eat. The staff were pleasant and did provide an on the house drink when one of the mains didn't appear until five minutes after everyone else's. It could be a really nice place to eat and probably was, but at the moment it's very hard to rate highly.
We had a really good experience at Checkpoint. After changing our reservation to an earlier time mid-festival, we arrived even earlier. They were extremely charming and accommodating. The food was eclectic and very tasty and good value, as was the wine. Will definitely visit again next year!
As usual, Checkpoint was reliably good: nice coffee, good food served thoughtfully, and great staff. The actual Quandoo booking didn't come through to the restaurant, which is a little worrying (and the staff said they'd follow that up), but the waiter found us a table anyway.
The restaurant was really busy (during the Festivals which is to be expected) even when we arrived just before noon but the wait staff were really friendly and kept us informed about the delay in ordering and checked on us many times. Food did not take too long in the end and was delicious as usual. Really friendly and attentive staff thanks so much and good luck during the rest of August! :)
This was my first time at Checkpoint and it was so good I went back twice in one day. Great service and excellent food. Highly recommended for either brunch or dinner or even just a coffee.
The surrounds and atmosphere are wonderful at Checkpoint. The food and menu are fab, the only thing lacking is the services, its a tad slow and inattentive.I have been here many times and look forward to returning very soon.
I was meeting up with old friends and wanted somewhere with interesting and delicious food, which was also helpful for people with allergies. We were made very welcome at Checkpoint. Highly recommended!
Another breakfast at Checkpoint, another lovely experience. I had the smashed avocado on sourdough (yum!) whilst my friend had the trout benedict (yum!)baby both were superb!
I had asked for a quiet corner when booking but my dining companion arrived before me and may not have known of this request. Being in the centre of the room made hearing hard. Otherwise the ambience was good, the service equally good, although I would probably not choose to have the watermelon and feta salad as a large dish in future - I didn't anticipate that there would be little else to accompany it!
We really enjoyed our first trip to Checkpoint. I'm looking forward to trying out the brunch menu sometime in the near future. Nice staff, good food, definitely returning!
Last work Friday before Christmas the restaurant was full but the service and quality of food was first class. Really helpful staff who had helpful suggestions for their best beers from their (extensive) collection. Reminded again what a great place to eat this is. Recommended!
Excellent food & service. We couldn't have been happier or more satisfied with the large portions & flavours. Only mishap was that the waitress hadn't been updated on that night's menu. She did quickly find out what we needed to know. We'll definitely be back soon to try the breakfast menu.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We were well looked after by our waiter, Thomas, who served us well but also engaged in a bit of banter. He advised us on both food and wine. We were very impressed and will return
The staff were attentive and prompt. The place was not crowded, was spacious and had a nice ambience to it. There was free wifi. There was a lot of choice of food in the menu and the food tasted great!
