    it took a while to get proper service and the order to be requested. the menu doesn't include regular drinks such as coffee even though they serve it. the food is good and the service is not bad, but is somehow slow, maybe because my boyfriend and I decided to seat outside, but still i don't think it should be used as an excuse. overall it was a good experience, something different for a Sunday morning.

    Good place for a rainy day on Lincoln road with reservation option for inside dining. Reasonable prices with kid menu option. Be careful, tip already included on the check. Our waiter was very indifferent, border line annoyed.

    Amazing food, although the server had great knowledge of the menu she was slow in bringing the drinks and refilling them. I could see her talking and playing with the hostess while I tried to get her attentions, it took me about 5 minutes to get y Sprite really. Aside from that the choices of food she suggested were great, the fried pickle pastrami, the avocado burger, the side of onion rings, and the chicken wings were delicious. I will definite go back to try brunch or the turkey sandwich.

    This place has been one of my favorite NYC restaurants for years. However, having visited the Miami location recently, it seriously fell short! The service was pretty horrendous, with a very disinterested waitress who seemed preoccupied with other things. For that matter, the entire staff seemed disinterested. The food was just ok...not great. The fries and burger were not up to NYC standards. All in all a disappointment.

    Dinner: 8:30pm, Sunday 5/18/14 This is a Lincoln Rd establishment, with all the usual fan fair. The burgers were good but not the best ever. It's always lively & great people watching dining outdoors on Lincoln Rd. They offer a great selection of beers & cider, I had the Angry Orchard Cider, it was killer! I ordered the bacon cheese burger. My brother enjoyed his burger with avocado. I will say... they do cook to order! I like my red meat RARE and they delivered! THAT is worth an extra star... except for the bad service. We were handed off because the women responsible for our section was clearly overwhelmed. If you want a decent burger and you're on Lincoln Rd, 5 Napkin Grill is better than Shake Shack!

    We were recently in South Beach, Fla. and wanted to try an outdoor cafe because of the beautiful weather. Well, this place got pretty good reviews, but I guess we are getting spoiled lately. Ordered steaks for both of us. I ordered mine medium, and even so, it was oversalted and tough. Reminded me of a poor supermarket quality steak from our neighborhood store. The daquiri that I had seemed watered down. Didn't want to stay for dessert. It was fun being outside, after the horrible winter in the D.C. area where we live, but would not go back. The waitress we had was adorable, however, and fairly attentive.

    Instead of opting for the traditional burgers we tried some of the other offering on the South Beach menu. Fish tacos, very good and the chopped salad w/ chicken was good but not out standing. My youngest daughter had the chicken fingers and said they were one of best she ever had, that coming from someone with some extensive knowledge on the subject. I also what point out the service, great waiter very attentive and made for an excellent experience.

    Food was decent but not as good as I remember it. 5 Napkin is still a good burger joint even on an off day, Fries were not hot. The waitress disappeared for awhile which meant no refills on drinks, i don't consider these major issues, but the restaurant is pricey for the fare that it serves,

    We had dinner inside and had to wait 30 min.to have our hamburgers because they were very busy but the manager came to explain the situation and to apologize. The food was good and the waitress friendly. The noise inside is moderate and there are several screens which is nice if you are a sport's fan. A nice place to have a bite when you're on Lincoln Rd.

    Although the name has changed to 5 Napkin Grill, it's still a slightly upscale burger joint. But at $15+ for burgers, it's starting to get a little ridiculous. But it is Lincoln Road, so I guess that's the future since the landlords are driving rents into the stratosphere. Pity.

    I had been to the 5 napkin in NY so I wanted to check out the one here at home. It didn't disappoint, but I wouldn't say it Wowed me either. They have a bunch of good appetizers we tried like 6 of them. I recommend the potato skins, they are different from what you are used to seeing. The burger was good and the beer list was pretty expansive. If you are in the area you should try it out.

The hostess told me it was because of the AC getting too cold then the manager came over and said it had a broken spring arm and would hit people.....WHichever, doesn't really matter. In hot humid S FL, a restaurant should have their doors closed and the AC running....

    I was completely surprised at how great the food and service were. I have seen some bad reviews on 5 Napkin but decided to take a chance. We were so happy we went. We started with wasabi deviled eggs and a beet with goat cheese salad. The eggs great. I could have had more. The salad was above average and the goat cheese was maybe some of the best I have tasted. Two sliders followed. Probably two of the best I have ever eaten. The rosemary flavoring with the special cheese were excellent. No garnish or condiments needed. We opted for the Mahi and Chicken soft tacos. They were huge and filling with great flavor. Better than most Mexican places. If your are into cocktails, try the Blackberry Ginger Margarita. Make sure to check this place out.

    The food was fantastic, and the music that was playing had our party all swaying in our seats. Lots of fun! Big windows for people-watching, and food is reasonably priced for the area. I recommend the Happy Hour sliders--they even have a veggie version for those who would prefer to avoid meat. The espresso brownie sundae is amazing, and huge! It's definitely big enough to share. :)
