The Best Burger on the Planet and always perfectly cooked medium rare just the way I like it! Plus, the basil gimlets and sweet potato fries are equally delicious...I could literally eat here every single day for the rest of my life. Also, the servers are so friendly and professional. If I could I would give 5 Napkin Hell’s Kitchen 1,000 stars....but there’s also something sort of brilliant about a 5 star review for 5 Napkin!

We made a reservation since it was a busy Saturday night and in doing so we were seated immediately. Our waiter was very nice and attentive, they even put a candle in my little one's milkshake for her birthday. Food was great! Thank you!

I have been to the Hell’s Kitchen Branch many times before. I usually order the veggie burger, their version not the impossible one. This time it did not taste the same and in fact was not good. Additionally, the rest rooms were dirty.

Best burgers ever!! A must see/eat NYC eatery. Forget 5th Avenue and head over to 9th Avenue, Hells Kitchen.

A ketchup sauce literally exploded on my girlfriend, all her clothes, shopping bags (and their content), shoes and hair were just full of ketchup. Staff did nothing but give us a complimentary dessert.

Food was wonderful but very pricey. Service was pretty slow but the great food made up for it.

Best Burger ever. It was a great experience, not to mention the Margaritas which were awesome. Service was great and the entire experience was over the top.

We had another AWESOME meal at 5 Napkin Hell’s Kitchen! The food and drinks were phenomenal...and our server Julia was amazing! I have some food allergies and she suggested the kale salad and I LOVED it!!! Normally I get the 5 Napkin burger with a gluten free bun but I decided to try the salad and I’m sooo glad I did!!! I think it’s my new favorite meal. Can’t wait to come back!!! It’s truly the BEST BURGER in NYC!!!

Eric our was very personable. Food was tasty and fresh, although I would have liked my truffle burger a little more “truffly”. Very open space. Great for people watching the interesting crowd coming down 9th ave and in the restaurant.

The food is always outstanding, my dinner partner and I both had the burger salad, although hers was very undercooked. She ordered it medium well and it came out medium rare like mine. But the service was great, we were seated quickly, within 15 minutes of our reservation time, and our server was outstanding. There are a few tables where there is a column that makes seating on one side of the table a challenge, and we had one of those, but other than that it was a great experience

We always go to 5 Napkin before a show. We all love it-- one vegan kid, one vegetarian mom, and meat eater dad and son! Fast service, excellent food, and friendly staff. It's loud but four of us can have a conversation and hear each other just fine. Make a reservation because there's usually a crowd.
