The food was just ok. Many better burger places in town.

The salad bowl with burgers were delicious. The service was extremely slow - over 40 minutes between ordering and getting served our meals. It has been much faster on previous visits, so I'm not sure what was going on with the restaurant that night.

We waited nearly an hour for dinner to arrive after ordering. Waiter, who disappeared for a long time, had no idea it was my daughter's b-day, which was in the opentable comment (probably not his fault). Have been to NYC location(s) many times and food seems better tasting/ quality (fries were super salty at Boston location). Kinda bummed us out..

The ambiance and food were wonderful, however the service was much less than to be desired. It took a while before we even got to order our food and we’d been there an hour and a half (mostly with empty drinks) before we actually got to eat. At one point, we actually got up to refill our own drinks with the pitcher of water at the waiters station next to us because our waiter only checked on us twice in the two hours we were there. As a restaurant that’s directly beside a convention center, I would expect much better service, especially since the place had multiple tables empty still, so they weren’t even packed. The food was pretty good, but I would not deem it worth the wait.

This restaurant is staffed by beginners. The food is hastily prepared without even adhering to the ingredients listed in the menu. Nearly frozen greens with scant add-ins. A rude and gruff maitre'd. Mediocre wine. Don't spend your money here.

Solid burgers, with interesting flavor variations. Exceptional shakes . Very good salad alternatives for those that do not like burgers.

This was my first time a 5 Napkin Burger but definitely won't be the last. Burger was massive more than I could actually eat and the fries were awesome. Took my 9 year old very picky eater and he wanted more fries. So definitely a big hit!

I work nearby but have never beer here before. I got the Avocado Burger medium. Cooked perfectly and the guac topping was delicious. I'll make it a point to come back in the future. E everything is ala carte which is nice if you are trying to watch your weight. If you give me fries, I'm gonna eat them. Happy they don't just come with everything. My friend got them and they were tasty.

Service was good. Loved the Manhattan. Bacon on the burger was top notch, as was the burger (fresh lettuce, tomato an
