I have to say I'm not big
I have to say I'm not big on ordering burgers. We went because my son is a big burger kid. The service was wonderful! Ryan was a great waiter...friendly, helpful and nice. Would def go back to and ask for Ryan.

Five Napkin is great. My son and I go there almost every week. It's kid friendly but not a kids restaurant.

The fried pickles and pastrami
The fried pickles and pastrami are obscenely good. The burger I had was excellent.

We enjoyed all the food. Ordered
We enjoyed all the food. Ordered the tuna appetizer and it was delicious. Ahi tuna burger was great. Mahi fish tacos were good. Visited because several reviews listed the veggie burger as one of the best around. Upon ordering we were informed that they ran out. How can a burger place not have enough of their best rated burgers? Oh well. We will go back in hopes they will have enough.

Calmer and easier to get a table than the midtown location, but still the energy (and accompanying noise!) that you would expect from FNB. The Tuna Burger is one of my favorites!!

Great burgers, atmosphere
Great burgers, atmosphere a mix between restaurant and upscale diner, friendly service, I highly recommend it. I like my steak medium rare so ordered my 5 napkin burger that way and was a little bit unnerved by how bloody it was in the center. It was charred nicely on the outside though and grew on me after the first few bites. Might order it done medium next time though!

The food is terrific. Delicious
The food is terrific. Delicious burgers and really good sushi, so something for everyone. Most tables are booths, which are fun. But the music is SO LOUD, every time I go, that I can never hear a word the person across the table is saying.

Great food as always but I had to wait 45 minutes even with an rsvp.

As always, terrific food with terrific service. They really go the extra mile to make sure that the customer comes first. My only complaint is that the bartenders are not as attentive as they should be... Had to repeadidly get their attention for a drink even when they were standing around talking to each other.

Should know the burgers by now
Predictable experience. Great food. Service a little slow and wanting, but friendly and good. Have to say, this trip to 5-N we experienced the most uninviting hostess. Not sure what that was about. Nut sure I've ever seen such an unfriendly or unprofessional person before. Luckily, that didnt affect us one we were seated.

The guys loved the burgers, my salad with goat cheese and beet was okay. Fries were a bit too soft.
I would come back. Reservation for dinner is needed otherwise you just have to wait.
5/17/2013 4:00:00 PM
My favorite is the lobster sliders with sweet potato fries instead of French fries My husband swears by the fish tacos. Misweek is the best time to go. Weekends it's crazy busy!
5/19/2013 4:00:00 PM
DELICIOUS & AWESOME
When I want a burger & don't want to make it myself... 5 Napkin is where I go. It is consistently delicious & ALWAYS prepared the way I asked. There is never a guessing game whether or not my burger will be over cooked.
5/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
We always enjoy the food and the atmosphere at 5 Napkin Burger. Its also great with the kids during lunch -- a little more crowded at night and harder to accomodate the kids.

We went for farher's day and the food was delicious. It was kid friendly and the food was serviced quickly.

Great burgers but loud
We used to live on this neighborhood and eat there frequently. Returned this weekend. Same good food but the background music is loud and very fast paced. I commented to my husband that the music almost encourages you to eat quickly and leave. Next time we will get a table outside. Great food and service though.

Can't fault this place
I haven't got a bad word to say about 5 Napkin burger. My fiance and I loved it and went back the same week before we flew home. It's in a nice area on the upper west side, the decor was cool, a hip diner feel for a professional crowd, the menu was great, milk shakes amazing! (try the cookies n cream or salted caramel) and the burgers are out of this world, I went for the house special and wasn't sorry. All for a fair price. Go out of your way for this one, We did and loved it!

Good food - lackluster srevice
This Five Napkins location has a slight problem with the service; although the wait staff is friendly and professional, the bus boys and other support staff seems to go out of their way to ignore you.
I went yesterday with my 4 year old, who accidentally knocked over his water cup. When I tried to alert two of the bus boys about the accident so that they could clean it, they both looked at me in the eye and ignored me completely. The water was spilled on the floor for a good five minutes before somebody came to clean it.

Good food. Appetizers are unique and delicious, and the veggie burger was actually delicious (I am a meat eater and hardly EVER order a veggie burger).
7/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great to take a break
Casual, excellent food and impeccable service, can't go wrong. Great atmosphere.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
I really enjoy this restaurant time and time again. They're veggie burgers are the best in the city, and their Sundae Brownie dessert is top notch too.

I'll come again
We were seated quickly upon arrival by a very kind hostess. Moments later our waitress greeted us and took our drink orders. The service was prompt, courteous and very efficient for the entire meal. All of the food was great and I was tempted to order more of the crunchy onion rings to take home but I was so full as the bacon burger was large. Good service and good food will lead me back again and again...

We like the menu and the quick service; definitely recommend for a casual experience or when meeting a group of people that aren't looking to spend a lot for a meal.

Reliably Good Burgers
I've been to 5 Napkin a few times now, and I've always had a good experience. It does get loud inside, but the burgers are well cooked, the staff is attentive and responsive even when they're busy, and the drinks are good too. For a higher end burger, this is my go to spot.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
I eat here all the time. Burgers are great but lots of

We loved our meal at 5 napkin burger. Great service, great tasting food.

Noisy but still a great place to eat. I eat here or even take out from them

Delicious burgers, salads
5 Napkin Burger is our go-to spot for a group larger than 3, when we want good food without a lot of fuss. It can be crowded & noisy, but it is totally reliable for truly yummy burger (especially the lamb burger, 5 Napkin burger & the veggie burger.) Also don't miss the wasabi deviled eggs if you enjoy the spicy kick of wasabi - you don't get many of them, but they are super delish. Fish tacos are also a solid choice.

Big delicious burgers
We've been wanting to try this place out for a while and finally had the chance. The burgers were big, juicy and delicious. I had the Classic 5 Napkin Burger but I can't wait to go back and try the others!
My only gripe was about the appetizer we ordered. Seemed a little pricey for what it was- the pastrami and pickles. It was just 4 small pieces of pickle (a single spear cut into 4 pieces) with pastrami wrapped around it and deep fried. For the price I was expecting at least a few pickles-- pickles are about as cheap as they come and the app was like 8 bucks! Not worth it.

Sempre una garanzia
Quando mi capita di passare da New York, non posso saltare l'appuntamento con l'hamburgher di 5 Napkin. L'ambiente è carino e rilassato e il personale veloce e gentile.

We were seated within five
We were seated within five minutes of our computer generated reservation, Everyone enjoyed the classic burger and the tower of onion rings. Burgers were cooked perfectly in four different ways. They were out of some beers but others filled in. Could have had a bit more attention form our waitress over the evening in order to order more drinks and side dishes,
Over all easily a five star. The negative comments were promptly fixed.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
We come almost every week and it's always predictably great. Food is great and atmosphere is great. It's kid-friendly, but you don't feel like it's a kids restaurant.

Love the burguers
We love their burguers and loved the blueberry marghueritas! Service was good.

Had another great meal at 5 Napkin Burger! Service was great, food was great. Will definitely come back again! Great burgers!

great food, good service. we come every practically every friday when we're in town. there's a reason we come back.

Best burger we know
We found 5 Napkin on 9th and 45th 5 years ago and always enjoy their burgers. The Very Vanilla shake is yummy as well. Our server this evening was excellent, so much so that I told the manager how well he had performed.
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Consistently great comfort food! We love 5 Napkin Burger. It is a great place to go with friends or family. They have a good cocktail menu too.

Best Veggie Burger EVER
I haven't eaten meat in over 20 years, so finding a place that has good veggie burgers is a must for me. Five napkin has THE BEST one yet, made with grains such as wheatberries and also with beets! In addition our girls love the matzo ball soup (the matzo ball is the size of my six year old's head) and our other girl loved her burger. There is definitely a reason they call it FIVE NAPKIN. Waitstaff was attentive but not intrusive, drinks were refilled as needed, and dinner flowed well. The only gripe I have is that the place is looking a bit tired, like an old diner, and could be cleaner. :(
But overall the food is great, the hand-cut fries addicting, and the burgers wonderful at good price points.

solid burger option on the UWS
The burgers do in the end stack up to being very tasty, they do a great job of cooking them taste (at least for our table). They were quite slow initially on getting someone over to the table to take a drink order, but we were seated immediately which was nice. The atmosphere was cozy but the venue overall is quite loud and more than two or three at a table would be hard for conversation under a low shout. The burgers while having a lot of interesting options for topics are a solid list of favorites without being too overly creative in the process. I can't help but feeling a little creeped out about the conveyor belt on the ceiling and the meat hooks hanging down.

Best hamburger places in the neighborhood, service dips good and so is the food,.
