Spectacular food [and prices]!
Delicious. Try the classic burger, ... or the tuna burger is phenomenal! Everything is infused with taste. Bravo.

Not too bad
The server was very pleasant but service was a little sporadic. I had to ask for several things.

This has definitely become my regular go to spot for lunch or dinner with friends.
Was there twice this week. Finally had the fish tacos and loved them!
The Prosecco we had was crisp, delicious and perfectly chilled. This is definitely a great regular spot for anyone in the area.

a good choice before theatre in this area. the burgers are delicious and are made from
quality prime meat and the beer list is extensive and fun to try.

Great burger joint
Got their signature burger. It tasted great. I would definitely give this place a try if you are a burger person.

Don't forget to try the french onion soup.

Great burgers, if that's what
Great burgers, if that's what you're after. Diner atmosphere, if that's what you're after.
If you're looking for something else, probably best to go elsewhere.

Cool concept and all items
Cool concept and all items were very well executed. My only disappointment was the blandness of the breading on the onion rings.

Good food, service - Meh...
The food was delicious. The server was expedient, but disinterested.

Great Lunch Spot
Probably eat lunch here at least once a month and its always good. They have a wide variety of burgers ranging from beef to lamb to tuna and they are all delicious. Throw in the fried pickle and pastrami appettizer and you'll be a very satisfied customer.

I have been to 5 Napkin Burger’s union Square location many times and the burgers are always delicious and juicy with a good selection of yummy toppings. My favorite is the Avocado Ranch Burger. I also love their guacamole appetizer, which is a huge portion, though they could be more generous with the chips. I suppose if you asked for more chips they would bring them.

The menu is varied enough that the sushi lovers and meat lovers could find something. Corner restaurant so outdoor seating is nice. Burgers, fries are great. 10-oz. burger is a bit much for most people I think (the original), but if you can handle it, go for it. Sushi was great too, very fresh. This was lunch so can't vouch for bar scence. Everyone left happy....and quite full. The service was excellent. Our waiter came around often to refill glasses and took special requests to the kitchen no problem. Excellent experience.

very good burgers and beers
very good burgers and beers to wash them down and welcoming staff to boot.

Overall, it was a great time. However, service at the bar was extremely disappointing. My boyfriend and I were sitting there trying to get the bartender's attention for a solid 20 minutes before she asked us if we wanted something. Other than that it was fantastic food with a great waiter in a fun environment.

Great burgers in a friendly
Great burgers in a friendly restaurant. I was only familiar with the 5 Napkin on 45th street which has the same terrific burgers, beer and wine but that location is noisy, crowded and a little too mobbed with tourists to be comfortable.
It was a great pleasure to enjoy both the meal and the atmosphere at the 14th street location!

Ok food, good service, novel place
cool place with ok food in terms of the turkey burger I had. It's a couple of other locations too so I'll check them out and try other items as well.

Visited 5NB last year. Still great burgers! Love the original with rosemary aioli. Great beer collection.

Great Burgers and Fries
This was our second trip to a 5 Napkin and our first to the Union Square location. We both ordered the original burger, I got sweet potato fries and my husband went with the classic french fries. Our burgers were cooked exactly as we had ordered and were quite good. I very much enjoyed my sweet potato fries, some of the best I've had. I suggest ordering the rosemary aioli to use as a dipping sauce for the fries. The only thing I would have changed was the noise level. I know that this is pretty much out of the control of the restaurant, but it was quite loud in there and difficult to talk.

Great burgers and beer!
I love 5 napkin burger for their delicious veggie burger, but my boyfriend loves their meat burgers and fries too. Oddly, about 1/4 of their menu is sushi, but we didn't try that. I can say the beer on tap and burgers and sides are top notch. The restaurant is always busy, usually full of NYU students, but don't let that stop you. The staff is friendly and the food is great and a reasonable price.

If I could choose the menu
If I could choose the menu for my last meal on earth, 5 Napkins would certainly be a strong contender. The original burger with the gruyere and carmelized onions with a side of their buffalo wings is near perfection.

An Experience, After Work Special.
A great after work outing with a few co works (friends). Its always nice to find a nice burger place that has a good selection (Menu) giving everyone more options. And a good selection of drinks. I really look forward to going again. Though it was quiet busy that or doggy bag got mixed up. (party of 3)

Best burgers in NYC
First time at Union Square location, but it was no disappointment. The burgers were just as delicious as the ones at the other 5 napkin locations. Can't wait for my next visit
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
I brought my 13 year old here after seeing a show. I made a reservation on line. It was very easy. I received confirmation via e-mail and also received a phone call from the restaurant confirming. I like that they are on top of things. The place was very clean. We had a 4:30pm reservation on a Sunday. We were seated right away. I had the original Five Napkin burger. It was delicious!!! I would say the best I have ever eaten. My son had the Bacon Chedder burger. He loved it!! So tasty and juicy!!! We had barbecue french fries and tater tots. They were awsome!!! I was definately the "Best Mom" when we left!!! I would definately recommend this place!! I can't wait to go back.

Great food-too LOUD for conversing
The food is great, the service is good...but the place is SO LOUD. I'm 31 and I'm hardly a fuddy-duddy, but between the music level and the fact that there's nothing to absorb the sound of people and plates, the place get's REALLY noisy. Sit close if you want a hope of being able to hear one another.

Good evening out with friend
The service was good -- not a long wait to get our order and the food was brought as ordered. Tasty dessert sundae. I would go back.

Have been to many of the 5 Napkin restaurants and I always enjoy it and the service is always impeccable.
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
The original 5 napkin burger deserves 5 stars. The carmalized onions and rosemary aioli adds the perfect touch to a great quality
burger that's cooked to the exact temperature requested!
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very good burgers
Group of five went to eat here on a Saturday night. The place was very busy and loud. The food was delicious especially those who ordered the original five napkin burger and the lamb burger. Sweet potato fires were very delicious as well. The service was a bit slow as our waiter was servicing several tables at a time. Because of the loud atmosphere, it was hard to hold a conversation. I plan on returning in the future.

Great food and service
Two friends who told me they weren't coming ended up showing up anyway. 5 Napkin staff was very courteous and got us a table even though the restaurant was packed. They even gave us an extra table to give us more room once it opened up. And as always, the burgers are fantastic.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
great spot for a great burger
The burgers live up to the name and the fries & onion rings are really good. We arrived almost an hour early on a very busy night and the host and hostess were very accommodating in their efforts to seat us earlier. Loud, but not so much that you can't talk to your party. Some tables are a little too close together.

A Great Dinner
We went to this one before a concert. The food was great and we had a great time. This place is great, as always.

Great, even if you don't eat meat!
We were meeting friends for a quick bite before a show at the Union Square Theatre and the location was perfect. The food and service were great and even though we arrived late, the wait staff made sure that we were out on time for our show. Two of us ordered hamburgers and two of us ordered the tuna burger. Tuna burgers were AMAZING ! I want to go back again, soon and so do the two who ordered the regular hamburgers because we raved about our tuna so much.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
We arrived earlier than our 9pm reservation, the restaurant was very busy, but we were seated within 5 minutes. Service was good server took drinks orders while we checked the menu. Ordered original burger and avocado ranch. They arrived in good time and were cooked exactly as we had asked. Good beer choice limited wine selection. Would definately recommend and return ourselves.

Standard burgers done right!
I like 5 napkin burger because the food is consistently delicious. The burgers aren't too adventurous (no rhinoceros or alligator meat on the menu), but they do have a good variety, and the ones my friends and I have tried (bbq burger, bacon cheeseburger, and lamb burger) were delicious, perfectly cooked, and nicely flavored. Their fries are cut a little small for my taste, so tend to be eaten better with a fork, but they are tasty. I far prefer their sweet potato fries, which are just amazing. Spend the extra dollars and feast on those!
I also love their salads topped with the BEST VEGGIE BURGER IN TOWN. It is made with beets, lentils, carrots, and happiness. I absolutely love it. Definitely recommended!!

5Napkin Union Square
The burgers were very nice, but the french fries were luke warm when served and got cold quickly.

We had a great meal at 5 Napkin, when we were over from London on our honeymoon. The service was great and the food was amazing, thanks x
