5 Napkin Burger - Hell's Kitchen
Girls weekendLoud scene but good 4 group of gals! Close to theatre with very good food. Guac was great!!! Fun6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDelish!Booked 5 Napkins from Toronto on my way to NYC. Fun ambience, perfectly located (we walked to our theatre from the restaurant) and best of all our meal was absolutely delicious!6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMQuality Burger JointWent on a Thursday evening with my parents who were in town visiting from the UK and wanted an American burger. 5 Napkin does a good one! Good burgers, decent size but not as enormous as some (a good thing) and friendly and quick service. Recommend booking as people were having to queue6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMalways fun any time of dayWe go often to have a fun, tasty meal. This time, I had a goat cheese beet salad. Totally delicious and filling for lunch. The gracious staff makes dining at 5 Napkin Burger so comfortable. It was a rainy day yesterday, but warm and cozy inside the restaurant,6/10/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was wonderfulWe had the buffalo chicken sandwich and a burger..the sweet potato fries were great. The service was fast and attentive even though it was busy. The prices were great for a NYC eatery. I would go back there!!!!!6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat BurgersAlways a go to spot when I dont want to spend lots of money. I can count on them for a great burger, fries (try the sweet potatoe fries) and a yummy milkshake (Smores..Umm). I always make reservations and have never waited for a table, no matter how crowded it is.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMNot What I expected - Better!I had expected 5 Napkin to slide into a category of extremes. One one hand I thought I would need a coronary care unit standing by and that the burgers would be so huge I might burst my aorta. At the other end I feared it would be like 5 Guys and I'd be getting fast food at more expensive prices. I was quite pleasantly surprised to find a normally sized, albeit delicious burger served in a pleasant yet casual atmosphere with service that was pretty darn good!
Its not date night (too loud and too casual)t, and it might not even be night out with the guys (no TVs!) but if your looking for really good tasting meat then give it a try. You can even take along the vegans and the dieters as they menu is broader than you might thing!6/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBurgerliciousThe burgers are always great here. They are cooked the way you like them, and run down your fingers while you eat them. Hence, five napkin burger. My friends always go here for a fantastic burger.6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDining near Theater DistrictGood food & good prices near the theaters without the hype! Enjoyed our meal before our show!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of my top Burgers of all time!!I would eat at 5 Napkins everyday for the rest of my life if I could. It is truly one of the best Burgers EVER!!!!! They also have an awesome menu with other options and a great Beer menu as well. I LOVE this restaurant. It can get very busy because almost every New Yorker loves this place.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had such a great time atWe had such a great time at this place! Everyone's burgers were delicious. Two of us got milkshakes. They were awesome!6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBurgers are crazy good!If you don't like burgers, don't worry...these are amazing and can be eaten with a fork and knife. And the guacamole/chips are the best I've had. It is loud in here but so fun for groups of 3 or 4...a vibrant scene after a show on broadway. Will return!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding burgerWe all LOVED IT! Plenty of excellent choices for non meat eaters as well. The tuna was fabulous as well!5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMspecial eveningThis was a perfect place to dine before the theater and probably after theater.

Perfect for pre- theatre matinee lunch!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMbirthday dinnerI made a reservation for four on a Saturday night because I knew it would be busy. When we arrived it was packed as expected so i was worried we would have to wait despite having a reservation, but we were seated almost immediately. I had the lamb kofta burger which was delicious! Initially I asked for it cooked "well" but upon the server's suggestion I changed my order to "medium-well" so it wouldn't be tough- very good suggestion! Overall happy with my experience and would definitely come again. :)5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMIt is not just a 'burger' placeYes they have burgers, but nothing about their burgers are 'just a burger'...I have been here in the past and will continue to come back...for only two reasons...the food is great and the staff is good...5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's Day pre-theater luncI was there with my granddaughter and a friend.

But if you want you could go to the bar and ask them. Then she proceeded to stand at her station and talk, so I got up and went to the other side of the restaurant to get the phone on a outlet charger. Wow what a bad dislpay of sutomer service.

Great experience!4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMProbably my favorite burgerProbably my favorite burger ever. Worth the trip.

And yet I keep going back for that burger.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AM5 Napkin is always a reliable5 Napkin is always a reliable bet for bringing folks who are from out of town that are looking for a local yet accessible experience. It's not so trendy that you feel out of place but its certainly not your average burger joint. The food is always good and the decor is full of character.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLamb burger was deliciousLamb burger was delicious as always. Great service also4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMHostess was very accommodatingHostess was very accommodating and after a short wait gave us a coveted table by the window - relatively quieter in a place that is always busy and can get pretty loud.

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 AMIt was very nice. My friendsIt was very nice. My friends and me asked for separate checks and it was done no questions asked.

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.

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 AM
