We couldn't find him, and waited a long time to order lunch, and waited even longer to order dessert.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMLively hamburger joint. ManyLively hamburger joint. Many choices and wait staff a lot of help.
Seating is extremely tight as in a french bistro and noise level gets pretty high.
Great place for casual meal with friends but not a place you will linger to talk during busy meal times!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMReliable neighborhood staple5NB can be a little hectic, but the service is always great and the food reliable. It's also my go-to pre-theater spot.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMQuite deliciousWe were a table of 6 that each order something different. Everyone loved what they ordered, me especially. I loved the Lobster Sliders so much that the next time I went there that was exactly what I ordered. The sweet potato fries that our great waiter suggested were fantastic as well. Everyone else had a variety of burgers and each one was done perfectly to their order and very tasty. The drinks from the bar were also fun, different and very enjoyable. Great experience.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeMy husband and I were in NYC to see a show that started at 7 p.m. Due to traffic in the Lincoln Tunnel we didn't get to 5 Napkin Burger until 6 p.m. We had reservations for 5 p.m. and I called twice to say we were delayed. "Angela" said she would try to hold onto a table for us. All we wanted was their classic cheeseburger and a beer. Sure enough when we arrived we were seated immediately. "Sam" was our waiter and was as efficient and friendly as could be. We were fed and on our way with time to spare. Love this place. And obviously --- great burgers!4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went to 5 Napkin becauseWe went to 5 Napkin because of a friend indication and couldn't have had a better experience! The hamburgers were delicious and the staff was very atencious. I'd definitely come back in a new visit to NYC.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNice to know that a solidNice to know that a solid burger joint has dining options for vegetarians. The veggie burgher with peper jack and avocado was outstanding. There was also a nice selection of dark beers as well. The Espresso brownie for dessert was a nice finish to an already fulfilling meal. Would definitely go back with a group of friends.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a reservation and theyWe had a reservation and they messed up and sat someone in front of us causing us to have to wait longer but the food and service was well worth the wait.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food.

An NYC favourite.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, Great ServiceGreat Food, Great Service - just a great place to stop by and grab a bite and a drink. The hostess was very helpful and accomodating to our requests. The staff was attentive and the service was excellent. I highly recommend this place. Enjoy!!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMJust what we were lookingJust what we were looking for! We had just arrived in New York and wanted to soak up a little of the energy of the city. Not "fine dining" but a very fine experience!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMmmmm burgers!Really enjoyed - the portions were great and the foods was good too. I was a bit thrown off by the sushi options next to the burgers but my friend said it was good so that was pretty sweet. The place was packed, I would definitely recommend reservations because I've had to wait 30+ minutes to be seated without reservations, on the plus side - they have a bar and the drinks definitely hit the spot while you wait. I would definitely go back!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMBurgers were excellent! GreatBurgers were excellent! Great choice of beers, even non alchoolic beer for pregnant women. The service was quite quick, so if you're looking for a nice time with your boyfriend might not be the best choice of restaurant.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a large group (10) inHad a large group (10) in the area for the NY auto show and we needed a place for dinner. Since I live in the area I knew 5 Napkin would be a good choice and it did not disappoint. While we did have to wait for perhaps 45 mins, the bar was great and gave everyone in the group to have a drink and relax which was nice. Food choices included burgers (always good), sushi (they do a good job on sushi) and fish tacos (which again were very nice). Service was excellent w Meagan trating the group very well; attentive and quick with any requests, but never over-bearing. Did not have any negatives and will certainly go back. There are a number of good burger choices in the area, but this one is great for groups when u want a lively atmosphere.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were presently surprisedWe were presently surprised by the delicious food and friendly atmosphere.

Enjoyed eating there immensely!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMUps and Downs...As always, the Original Burger was excellent, but they took the parmesian fries off the menu - not a great move in my opinion. This time, we tried some new apps. The tuna wonton was really good. We did not care for the potato skins at all - woudln't recommend that.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to grab a biteGreat place to grab a bite before the theater. They take rervations. Be prepared for a cramped settings and lots of noise. Veggie burger was great as were the fries. Tuna burger was boring by comparison.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome GF burgersTheir gluten free burgers are incredibly delicious, the meat is juicy. Service is very friendly and knowledgable of food intolerance. I will definitly go back when I'll be back in NYC.They should advertise their gluten free burgers !3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMTrendy spot with very goodTrendy spot with very good and some unusual offerings the fried pickles with pastrami was wonderful3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThia restaurant has alwaysThia restaurant has always appealed to me when I have friends coming in the visit'.

Some seats require you to move the table to get in an out. Otherwise, the food was good.3/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDependable, great food, greatDependable, great food, great service for pre-theatre dining. We enjoyed mushroom/blue cheese burger, fish tacos and veggie/lentil burger with fries. Unpretentious fare, with good selection of beers, Peroni on tap and local beer too! Just wish they'd carry hard cider on DRAFT-Magners please. The place was totally full the night of our visit, yet they still accommodated us when we were 15" late. DO make reservations as this place is very popular and the food is reasonable for NYC, esp. the theatre district.11/30/2012 12:00:00 AM
