A word from 5 Napkin Burger - Hell's Kitchen
5 Napkin Burger is an upscale restaurant devoted to the art of the hamburger. The signature is 10 oz of fresh ground chuck topped with rosemary aioli, caramelized onions and melted gruyere on a soft white roll. The full burger lineup includes the all-American Bacon Cheddar, Italian Turkey, Avocado Ranch, Veggie, Lamb, Tuna, Inside Out, even a Burger Salad. While the burgers may be the headliners, the diverse menu of expertly prepared American classics entice foodies to come back nightly. 5 Napkin is the rare burger restaurant where vegetarians and carnivores are equally at home. Additional temptations include Matzo Ball Soup, Chicken & Waffles and Steak Churrasco. The 5 Napkin beverage programs showcases a global selection of 40 wines and 50 beers, 15 signature cocktails, 20 bourbons and a host of decadent milk shakes and floats – all a perfect complement to the cuisine.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Great place for a burger. Service was great! Definitely a great place for lunch."

  • "Table was 10 minutes late being ready but that was the only negative. Considering the line we were glad we booked in advance. Food was amazing. Best, and juiciest, burger I've had in the City to date. Eaten at 5 Napkin several times and it's never disappointed! Will definitely be back. Good friendly efficient service."

  • "I had been wanting to go here on previous trips to New York and never got the opportunity. The food and service was great. For anyone wanting to go here, make sure you use OpenTable as it is always crowded and my reservation (made 40 minutes prior to arriving) made all the difference in the world. We skipped ahead of everyone and got immediately seated."

  • "We were going to a Sunday Matinee show and reserved a lunch seating. We were seated promptly, service was excellent & food was great and not just the burgers - fish tacos & Ahi Tuna Burger were very good. Did not feel rushed and enjoyed my meal with friends. This will become my "go to" casual dining place in the theater district as the menu is so varied and it is very convenient."

  • "It was a busy Saturday night and we arrived right at our reservation time. We were seated right away in, what looked like, the last open table. Our food came quickly and the server was excellent. We were out of there in a half hour. Just in time to make our bus back home! Highly recommend!"

  • "I had a couple shandies by a very attentive bartender. The Mahi fish tacos are so good and my brothers KILLED the special Korean BBQ burgers. It was actually a double burger and yes...they needed 5 napkins. Juicy!"

  • "I brought my father, a burger lover, to this resturant. He absolutely loved their 5 napkin burger. As a non-red meat eater, I had plenty of choices and was satisfied with my chicken dish. Overall, great food and great resturant!"

  • "We went to 5 Napkin Burger before a 7pm Broadway show. It's a good think that i made reservation on Open Table. The restaurant was crowded with other theater-goers. Our meal was good and quick. I'd go back before a show."

  • "Great for theater goers: burgers are spot on and they even have sushi. But the noise level is the highest noise level I've experienced, so don't expect to hold a conversation."

  • "Great menu and atmosphere, with pleasant service. We will definitely return."

  • "Lots of publicity and expecting the ultimate burger but turned out disappointing. Ordered my burger medium rare and it came out medium well. Somewhat dried out and not the burger i was expecting, not bad but certainly didn't meet the build up. Got the onion rings instead of fries, which were quite good. Very loud inside so don't expect a lot of conversation. We ordered a salted Carmel milkshake for dessert and that was excellent. All in all, not bad, just not the ultimate burger that it was billed to be. Perhaps one napkin burger is a better description."

  • "Have eaten here many times and it never disappoints. All the burgers are great...and to be honest, I have never tried anything else. Obviously it is perfect before or after the theatre or whenever the need for a great burger arises. The service was especially good this last trip. I eat here every time I am in the city."

  • "I had the guacamole burger and it was the best burger I've ever had. Even my husband who is a chef agreed that it was one of the best burgers he's had. This is now our spot when ever we are in times square."

  • "We chose 5 Napkin Burger for lunch on a sunny day and sat outside. Our burgers were huge and juicy and our fries crispy and flavorful. Situated on 9th and 45th, we got a up close seat for people-watching. Our waitress was friendly and attentive, the food came out quickly, and we left stuffed. We would return!"

  • "The food is exceptionally good and so is the service. I've eaten here several times and never been disappointed. There is a wide variety of food on the menu, including sushi which continues to surprise me. I've been told it is very good too. The only problem I have is with the noise level when the place fills up. I have to shout to be heard as do my companions. If they turned off the music it would be helpful. Also an upgrade toacousrics would be great. Other than that, it's a terrific place to eat!"

  • "The food was delicious! We had the 5 Napkin Original and the Bacon and Cheddar hamburgers - quite tasty. A bit overdone for what we ordered (ordered medium, came a bit well-done), but still good. The fries were thin cut, and crispy. Drink selections were plentiful, but a bit pricy for some of the cocktails, however looking at the ingredients list, the alcohols used were not your standard bar rail. Our server was polite, knowledgeable and efficient, as were the attentive staff who cleared settings and cleaned tables. Only wish there was a bit more room between tables (a bit of a tight squeeze to get into the table as we were adjacent to a pole). Definitely a place I would visit again, just wish it weren't so far away from Canada! "

  • "Having paid a lot of money for theater tickets, I try to find a place to eat before or after the show that is moderately priced and this is a good choice for that. THere is a lot of outside seating, which I prefer because I am very averse to noise, and this is an especiallynice place for eating outside because it is a colorful, fun neighborhood."

  • "We went to 5 Napkin Burger before seeing Once. We had a reservation so we were seated right away. The food was great. I had the veggie burger and could only eat half of it. The ambience was great, very loud and energetic. Just what you want New York to be."

  • "Food festival outside, beautiful weather! Who could ask for more! Went there last Saturday. Made reservations so I was promptly seated, even with so many people waiting. Loved the food, good beers, and wonderful people watching. Billy Porter stopped by a table outside, and I promptly went out there to tell him I was also from Pittsburgh. Would definitely go back again!"

  • "Food was very good but I found the service stellar. I had been to a iconic restaurant for brunch that morning and 5 Napkins for a late dinner. The service here was outstanding and about 300% better over the fancier restaurant with the more well known name. Kudos!"

  • "I arrived in NYC late on Friday evening for a weekend stay and was planning on eating at 5 Napkin Burger at some point as it came highly recommended. We decided to make online reservations for the Friday night (which was very easy). Once we arrived we were welcomed with a smile. The atmosphere was great and just what we needed. The wait staff were terrific and the food was excellent. I would come back when in the city again and would recommend to everyone."
