A word from 5 Napkin Burger - Hell's Kitchen
5 Napkin Burger is an upscale restaurant devoted to the art of the hamburger.

The full burger lineup includes the all-American Bacon Cheddar, Italian Turkey, Avocado Ranch, Veggie, Lamb, Tuna, Inside Out, even a Burger Salad.

Diner Reviews
  • "Food is great. Our order was at our table in less than 10 minutes. Recommend reservations. It gets busy. Will be back every visit to NYC."

  • "Food was great! Fried pickels with pastrami was awesome. Lamb Kofka, Lobster special, and burgers were all delish. Dessert was really good too. Gave my daughter a candle and sang for her birthday. Problem was...did not get milk or coffee..at all. Waiter was absent. The bus boy brought day old, ice cold, decaf coffee. Manager gave us desserts on the house for the inconvenience which was nice. By this time, we just wanted to get going back to Jersey. The waiter took took several orders on a busy evening with our bill tucked under his arm and took nearly 30 minutes to bring us our completed bill. "Don't make it worse" is a saying in my businesss. The waiter, unfortunately made it worse, so it was reflected in his tip."

  • "Hamburger's were really juicy and large.. but noise was so loud in the restaurant you can hardly hear anyone. I've had better french fries and onion rings at other places. I made a reservation via opentable but they made us wait for 20 minutes near the bar while there was an open table with no one sitting there for the entire time until I went over and had to say something. I think if I didn't we'd still be waiting for a table. We stopped by before seeing a play so you do get served pretty quickly. It's not outstanding..just ok."

  • "Made a reservation on a Tuesday night and glad I did. The place was busy but the staff worked so efficiently that you didn't notice. We were seated and greeted in a timely manner. Wait staff were very attentive and nice. Food did not take long to come out and was delicious. I recommend the original 5 Napkin Burger and sweet potato fries."

  • "I read the back and forth internet banter between 5 Napkin supporters and Shake Shack disciples. 5 Napkin blows Shake Shack out of the water. 5 Napkin is a real burger, Shack Shack has overpriced fast food burgers. I will say that I was not impressed with 5 Napkins fries, however. They were okay, but nothing special."

  • "is to be told to follow the person who is going to seat you and mid-way being told to back up because the table isn't ready...and that happened at 5 Napkin Burger."

  • "Burgers cooked perfectly as ordered and explained, great combos of condiments on the burgers, best sweet potato fries I ever had!"

  • "The Original Burger was delicious. It was juicier than those at Madison Square Park Shake Shack. While the nearby Shake Shack burgers are pretty juicy, these at 5 Napkin seem bigger. Love the gruyere cheese on the "Original.""

  • "All of us enjoyed ourselves. The food was cooked just the way we liked and was hot! The chicken waffles were a hit!"

  • "My mom, my sister, and I needed to find a place to eat after a late night broadway show and we saw that this restaurant stayed open late. My mom also knew it was good from the last time she ate there. We reserved a table online, and it worked perfectly. Ordered burgers and their chicken and waffles. Everything was delicious! Definitely a busy place, but a cool atmosphere for the younger crowd. Service was ok, but the food made our experience better."

  • "We very much enjoyed our meal at 5 Napkin Burger during our week in New York City, it was our son's favorite restaurant during our stay. We would definately recommend it!"

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We were greeted by a very friendly waiter who was very helpful with advising me about the menu. Had the special "Korean BBQ Burger" and it was terrific! Good size burger, very juicy, flavorful and very creative menu item. We ate here right before going to a Broadway play and the service was so fast that we had more than enough time before our show. My daughter had the chocolate cake (delicious!!). This is a great spot and we'll definitely return. Perfect for families and couples alike."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "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."
