The food was delicious, we all had Bacon Cheese burgers. You have to order fries on the side, but for us it was enough to share one portion on 3 people. Free refill on soda was a plus! Would really recommend this place :)

We like the food but this place is always packed, and loud. If you know you're going, you can make a reservation which is recommended. Also, what is up with the tiles that lead from the main dining area to the rest rooms - most slick floor ever. I can't believe the servers don't fall. Be careful!

The food is fantastic. Meat is top quality. I go often to this place but last time I was disappointed. The receptionist was a bit rude. He seemed not interested to my request. I asked where my table was. His tone was unfriendly. The waiter Gus was very nice instead.

Went to celebrate a birthday. Good thing I made a reservation for 6 as it was packed when we arrived. Hostess gave us a great booth. Crowd thinned down after we were seated .
Our waiter Robbie was fantastic...attentive and didnt rush us at all. The food was what you'd expect. ... decent burgers and nicely done chicken and waffles. Robbie gave the table a huge free brownie dessert for my sisters bday which was nice and unexpected.
Be sure to check in on Yelp to get free side order of fries!

We had a 5pm reservation and our table was ready right on time. It was pretty noisy in there, which was an annoyance but it was very crowded and we were seated near the bar. Staff was friendly and the service was good. I disliked the fact that fries or some sort of side was not included; if you ordered a burger, you ONLY got the burger - fries were an extra cost. The burgers were very delicious though. I got a strawberry milkshake spiked with some vanilla vodka - it didn't have much strawberry taste, but it was overall still yummy.

In winter, sitting by the door is not a good place. However, the host was able to accommodate by moving us to a table farther from the door. The next few groups of people seated at the "windy door" table also moved. Other than that, I enjoyed the drinks and food.

Our first time here and glad we came. We had Tenzin as our server and she was greattttt service was prompt friendly and fast but good. We started with Hell’s Kitchen wings both hot sauce and Korean omg they were super crispy and hot right of fryer. Highly recommend. We order the bacon cheeseburger with American instead of cheddar very good burger but not cooked as requested medium but still were good.
Carrot cake was very good also. Will come back again and hopefully will have Tenzin again as she was very good

The food was as good as i remember great burger. The service was very bad a waiter that had no personality and was clearly unhappy serving customers. Asked to speak to a manager and told none on duty. This was the worst service I have seen in a New York restaurant. Don’t go to this place for service but go for the burgers

We were pleasantly surprised by this burger joint. I wound up getting the lobster sliders which were really good! I did not see milk shakes on the menu, so that's why I did not get a burger. Our serveur was excellent and they give you a dish of pickles!

Went there after Broadway show for dinner. Had the bacon cheddar burger and it was fantastic. You can taste the quality of meat they use. The kids menu portions were also a good size. Love the 5N sauce. Well worth it.

My wife and I have walked by this place for years and decided to try it out on a Tuesday night for pre theater bite. We shared a guacamole starter that included their house made potato chips which we thought were delicious. We each a had a burger for main course and they were good. Instead of fries they also accommodated us by providing side order of chips instead of fries at cost of fries. I was a little surprised the chips were not included as side with burger with an up charge for fries which I think is fairly common. Had one beer and glass of wine. Overall I felt the cost a bit high considering our meal, but food was good and portions filling. Service was fine.

Burgers we're fresh and delicious. I had the signature burger medium rare and found it needed nothing, it was perfectly cooked and we'll seasoned and a generous size. My wife was very satisfied with hers as well. Sweet potato fries were great. We will definitely come back again.

Always a great meal at 5 Napkin Burger Hell's Kitchen. Top choice for pre-theater. Never a rush, and they always get you out on time. Excellent hand-crafted cocktails, the "Bowls" are healthy and delicious and sweet potato fries crisp. And if you like desserts you've come to the right place!
