Brunch menu was tempting but we just had to try the burgers since it was our first visit. The Avocado Ranch a & Original 5N burgers were great (also quite large). A very nice thing about 5N is you can susbstitute a side salad for french fries. The service was fabulous -friendly, fast & professional. The menu had a lot of different things to offer-you could go with a large group and everyone would be happy.

I often bring visiting friends and family here... works like a charm: fun, energetic and delicious, and not just a burger joint. The guacamole and chips appetizer was awesome! Also appreciate that reservations are quickly seated. This visit was on Patriots Day weekend Saturday with all the marathoners in town, and the staff kept up with what appeared to be an onslaught of guests. Well done!

We were made to feel very welcome and comfortable at once. Delicious food,

a great personality! When we asked for reccommendations, she was very helpful
and really KNOWS the menu. (We loved the s'mores shake she suggested.)Would

My husband had the burger
My husband had the burger with a fried egg, and couldn't stop raving about it. The brunch cocktail selection was great, our friends loved the Tecate Michelada and I had a prosecco drink. Everyone was impressed with the food and the service. I'd like to come back and sit outside, so we are planning our next visit already.

We thought the burgers would be Spectacular and to our dismay they were average.

Great food, great service
Awesome cocktail menu; burgers were cooked perfectly and arrived very quickly. The food was exceptional and our waitress was very attentive and totally adorable. Love that this location has the look and feel of the Astoria/Manhattan locations, without the overcrowded atmosphere. We'll definitely be back.

A night in Boston
My sisters and I were headed to see the Boston Pops perform. Our dinner reservation was for 6:30, but as soon as we got on 93, we realized we were definitely not going to make that. We called 5N and they kindly pushed it back for us. We didn't get there until 7:10/7:15 or so and they weren't upset at all that we had just made it. We told the hostess we needed to be done by 7:45 in order to make it to Symphony Hall and our waiter kindly had us out of there in a half hour! The food was great and the service was as well.

Great burgers and decent calamari
Bring your appetite as the burgers are large and fries are perfectly crispy. The calamari was good not memorable but the plate was empty by the time our burgers arrived.

Slow service per kitchen
The restaurant was not full - busy, but not full. There were 3 in our party and we ordered simple meals -- burgers. It took about 40 minutes to get our food. The server never came by to let us know what the delay was and when we asked she pointed out there was a large party they served (looked to us about 12 people). Since the restaurant wasn't full, a party of 12 should not have delayed the order time for our meal. The burgers were hot and the fries were cold so those plates must have been sitting there for that portion. Everything else was okay. The blackened mahi burger was very good.

You won't be sorry for your choice. Plenty of variety and reasonably priced.

Great place for burgers
We love 5 Napkin's. The service is good and so are the burgers. If you are looking for a simple meal with good comfort food, this is it!

Staff was super friendly and knew about gluten free issues. They had delicious gluten free buns and French fries! Thank you for a great dining experience!!! Great Tito's wet martini!!!

Went to Brunch with a friend. We got outdoor seating. It was a beautiful sunday afternoon in the City of Boston. The dinners in the outdoor area were quit but the ciry was bustling around us on such a glorious day. The services was great! And as always the food was comforting. And best of all the prices were affordable for downwtown dining.

This place has good food and drinks, a convenient location and easily accommodated our larger group of 12 -- we'll definitely consider going back for future dinners. It's not surprise that this place has a lot of good choices for a burger-lover. That being said, I ordered the goat cheese salad and it was delicious! Also delicious were the drinks -- they have your standard beer and wine offerings, but lots of fun and tasty cocktails to choose from too.

Great place especially if you like gourmet burgers and home-made milkshakes. Also good choice of beer and wine. Great service and ambiance.

This place was insane
-ly adequate. they had good burgers, but not really worth the price. so, yeah..

5 Napkin Burger
Good service, great burgers and pretty decent craft beer selection!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
I ate dinner at this restaurant on Patriots Day, 2013, and was there when the police requested that people shelter in place. The staff was so accommodating and comforting, especially to the many marathon runners who were there without a change of clothes. They found blankets and other things for them, and made sure we had everything we needed.
While that was certainly an unusual event, I have found the service to be equally attentive despite a very busy restaurant. The variety of food is quite unusual for a burger place, too.

Good Burgers - Great Service
I had the mushroom, blue cheese burger which was cooked perfect and was flavorfull. The sweet potato fries were crispy and tasty but not as good as the barbecue fries. The onion rings were crusted with Panko breadcrumbs and were good, there could have been a few more for the price. The service was outstanding.
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The wife & I had a great experience. The food was very good, the waitress did a good job (though did disappear a little towards the end of our meal) and the ambiance was a retro-surprise (spoiler alert... old school meat packing plant). The drinks were very good and I will return.

Great burgers, great beer list
5 Napkin is known for their burgers and they are always a pleaser. Their beer list is also impressive, with some good choices on tap. My waiter was a little slow on refills but overall nothing was out of place.

great burgers and more
food was good, service was prompt. I had a salad and chicken tacos, both good and my daughters burger was delicious too. Vibrant scene, busy place. We had a reservation and were seated right away. Great experience.

Sat at the bar, got served in time to make our play at the Huntington. Burgers were great - so were the fries. Really nice roll - often overlooked in burger-land...

Five Napkin is a great spot to dine. There's enough choices for carnivores and vegetarians. We go regularly because my son craves the onion rings (they're awesome) and the 5 napkin burger. I like that I have a choice in salads and can stay on my diet. The hostesses are always pleasant and I am able to hear others at my table, in spite of the vibrant bar activity. My only issue this last time was that our server, while pleasant, was too assertive with his up-sell of appetizers, drinks and dessert. I get why, but it was a little over the top, and it took him awhile to understand that it was unpleasant for us. The rest of the service was great, and I will continue to recommend Five Napkin to friends.

First trip to Boston. Went to 5 Napkin only because of location and was very pleased with the awesome burgers and salads. It was a lovely surprise and will go back again.
