    Overall a good experience. The wait staff was friendly. The Manhattan is a great drink to try. We ordered our food that apparently was mixed up in the kitchen. After a long wait, the manager personally got involved and then gave us desserts at no charge. Alot of food thatwe definitely took leftovers home.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 2/16/2012
    I've never been happy with the South Beach food scene because you either need to go to a 4-star place (usually with a dress code), or you need to already know the good dives and local haunts that serve great cuisine but don't require heels and make-up. All the in-between type places strike me as incredibly lacking and uninspired--flavorless excuses for caprese salads and fried calamari. Luckily 5-Napkin offers thoughtful comfort food with a bit of innovation, all while offering a comfortable indoor/outdoor scene for the flip-flop wearing tourist. Pork taquitos are fabulous--could've eaten 50 of them. Veggie burger, made largely of beets, was one of the best I've ever had. Service was fast and fabulous along with the beer selection.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP

    We opted for the non-burger offerings and were pleased with everything...conrmeal coated onion rings, BLT salad, grilled fish tacos, lobster roll sliders, apple pie ala mode made in house. Plenty of food for two, however the four fish tacos were of an appetizer size. While our server was fine, we noticed no management presence which would have been helpful to improve service (runner who brought our entrees did not clear away the completely empty appetizer plates; we noticed other tables calling their servers over for corrections). We would go back next time and try the amazing looking burgers..

    We were there in September for My Daughter's Birthday and the food and service were fabulous. I told my friends it was the Best Burger I had ever eaten! We went badk for what was one of the most mediocre meals I have ever had. The burgers were overcooked and the service was awful. Some food never came to the table. The manager was nice and gave us a discount (not much) and we didn't have to pay for the foo chicken wings that came at the end of the meal instead of as an app, but overall with all the Burger places to pick from we might not go back. Our hostess was lovely though and went out of her way to seat us in a good spot. Oh and they forgot to credit us for the Open Table Reservation and I got an email that said we had missed our res!

    Not only did it take over 45 minutes for our food to come out, but when the server later brought the check, she reneged on a promise that our appetizers would be for free. (She lied, in other words.) The burgers were OK, not great. The sushi (which we ordered on a whim) was bland -- virtually tasteless. (I would pass on the sushi offerings if I were you.) The onion rings were greasy and had an unpleasant aftertaste With all the competition in the area, you think 5 Napkin would have its act together. Unfortunately, it repeatedly misses the mark. (And when you start lying to keep your customers from leaving, that's pretty much an act of desperation in my view.)

    We had a very good dinner while sitting outside and enjoying the "Lincoln Road" experience. The restaurant offered a variety of food choices but we decided on the burgers. They were done as ordered and quite yummy. The onion rings were crispy and the sauces were tasty. Our server Jordan was very friendly and made sure we had a good dining experience. This is a fun restaurant!

    The service was very good at this restaurant, and they accommodated many of my special needs. I was less than impressed by the burgers, which I'd imagined would be the signature dish of the restaurant. My burger, requested medium, came out far too done, which kind of killed the experience for me. The rest of the dishes that we ordered were OK... I think the menu is kind of busy and unfocused - too many options. I think they should focus on getting the core dishes (i.e. burgers) right. I'm not sure if I'll give this place another chance, but we'll see.

    The service was really good, the waiter was funny and very attentive. The food was really really good, for appetizer we ordered vietnamese roll that was really healthy and with a tangy dipping sauce and some pork taquitos wich were delicious. The for the main dishes we ordered the 5 napkin burger, the bacon and cheddar, the lamb burger and the fish tacos. The burgers were excellent and the fish tacos were really tasty cause they came with some pineapple salsa and some sliced avocados, the only complain was that the salsa made them really saggy and the 2 of my tacos ended up being a mess. I love this place, has a really modern and cool ambiance and decoration. And the prices are right!

    A welcome addition to Lincoln Road, this is less a tourist trap and more a really good restaurant. Delicious burgers, fresh tasty sushi, capable servers and drop dead gorgeous decor at reasonable prices make this a place even jaded denizens of South Beach should try. Be aware, however, that like many Lincoln Road eateries 5 Napkin Burger does include an 18% tip on all tables.

The Ahi Tuna burger was cooked perfectly, and the Original 5 Napkin Burger lived up to its reputation. A definite MUST for any food lover.

    Yet another burger joint opens on Miami Beach with unimpressive results. A first look 5 Napkin Burger is impressive. The tables have linen napkins and the place has a more refined feel than the other burger places on Miami Beach. The menu reads well and many items on the menu looked impressive but in fact fall short. We ordered the sweet potato fries, potato tots, two of the original 5 Napkin Burgers. The sweet potato fries were soggy, the potato tots were bland and had no texture. Lastly both our burgers which were ordered Medium Rare came out Medium Well. Overall if you are going to pay $50.00 plus for 2 people to dine out for burgers there are better places to choose from on Miami Beach where it won't take 20 minutes to get a drink

    Was at the restaurant only a week after it opened, so we were willing to cut some slack. Hostess was friendly and informative. Waitress was in was over her head. Even though the restaurant wasn't full, our order got botched and we had to wait for drink refills and had to ask e manager for the check because the waitress was AWOL. We started with onion rings - great presentation but had to add table salt because there just wasn't any flavor. We then has a big sushi roll, which was also presented well and was tasty, not great. I had their classic burger, which was also good, but not great, and nowhere near as large as the name of the restaurant would imply. Overall, an average experience.
