This is out go to lunch spot when going to NYC for a Broadway show. The food and service are consistently very good and by making a reservation we are sure to be seated well within our desired time frame. Of course their burgers are great but there are other items on the menu as well. They often have drink specials and seasonal dishes on the menu. Be sure to check it out before you go !

Was going to the premiere of the Irishman on broadway for my birthday. Also on Keto diet so was very concerned with the ability of the restaurant to service my diet needs being that it was a burger place. I was not disappointed. The waiter recommended keto friendly options like the guacamole for an app with veggie strips and chips (since my wife is not keto) and a delicious 5 napkin burger without the bun. Feta and avocado and tomato salad on the side with a light vinaigrette finished off the meal. All were excellent. Wanted the burger pink but not red and he made sure it came out perfect. Service was quick and not rushed and we had a great time overall and made it to our show on time!

Fantastic every time. Best burgers anywhere! Hands down. If you haven't had the original
5 napkin, you have no clue how good a burger can be

Food not as good as last time. Made a reservation and they put us in the worst seat. Right by door so we froze the entire meal.

Very disappointed....Had been recommended by family as a "must do" place, So we booked as a group at an off peak time...We were on time but totally rushed into drinks decisions and then menu choices. Food came promptly....and then the bill/check, even though we had decided to have another drink...So we left....disgruntled....lets go elsewhere....We were not noisy or disturbing or even "overstaying" in any way...butit was a case of quick in---quick out!!!
Food Vwas good but unspectacular...tower of onion rings was modest...not great.
Overall a very poor experience.

Burger was good but just a burger and fries / sides were ala carte. Come on for the price could include fries and
our waiter seemed to have too many tables and took forever for drinks, food and check.

The food was amazing! The waiter, Gus, was super nice in offering his menu favorites and helping us navigate the choices. It was a dinner for my partners birthday and the staff made sure to take into consideration all my requests which included a candle on top of dessert!

The burgers did not disappoint! Shared some fries that were all so delicious. the waiter was not in a hurry. That was fine with us on a rainy day. And though it's a popular spot, and it can be noisy, it was a very relaxing easy going lunch. We did not feel rushed!

A business associate cancelled at the last minute so I went alone. Their loss. Nice beer, great burger cooked exactly as ordered and perfect onion rings. I was recognized for my Open Table reservations and repeat business by my waiter.
This was another great experience here. I get frequent emails from them saying they miss seeing me come in to eat. Unfortunately I live thousands of miles away so I only get to eat here when I am in town for business. I wish I lived closer even though I live in In-N-Out Burger country so I could eat here more often.
Thanks to everyone working and who made my night with a great meal.

The food here was very good. But it's burgers and fries, so this doesn't exactly qualify as outstanding or deeply creative faire. The service was sub-par: Things were frequently forgotten, we were served water only once, and we got rushed out at the end. The typical burger on this menu is $17 and comes with no sides, so I wouldn't call it a good value.

Très bon moment passé chez 5 Napkin Burger, le personnel était accueillant, l'ambiance très animée. Nous nous sommes régalés avec les burgers végétariens, un délice. Et pour finir le repas, le cheesecake était à tomber. Très bonne adresse, nous recommandons.

Food was fine—but it wasn’t amazing. Our server was training another server and once they took our order, we never saw them again. We had nothing to drink for the last half of our meal and I had to flag down other servers to get anything else. We had many great dining experiences in NYC, but this one was not one of them.
