The food was great as usual...but the service is spotty here. We'd been seated for 40 minutes before we got our meal. Everyone around us (who'd come in later), was served before us. I feel like that happens every other time I am in....

Once again 5 Napkin Burger proved to be a wonderful choice for an after theatre meal. This time we brought our 6 year old granddaughter. Service was prompt and friendly. Food came exactly as we ordered and was delicious.

Was looking for kid friendly location/menu that was casual and not that far from the Christmas sights...but far enough away at the same time. This was the perfect choice. Was seated right away with my reservation, service was good, food was great, and I liked the atmosphere.

Love how you can have a burger on top of a salad, instead of buns. Loved the Kale salad! They have great fries which I try to avoid, just steel a few from my husband. We had a very good waitress this evening. It is casual dining however and pretty noisy, it’s after all a burger place.

Read and heard about this restaurant. It's true -- the burger (5-Napkin Burger) was one of the best ... if not THE best I've ever had. The fries could have been included with the burger rather than paying extra for them. They were not exceptional.

5 Napkin Burger is one of my top 5 restaurants in all of Manhattan...possibly all of America...And this is without question my favorite Burger in the whole world. We had an awesome meal hanging out with our close friend who was in town from LA, and he was blown away by the Original 5 Napkin Burger and the sweet potato fries he ordered, and both my wife and I LOVED our meals, but we ALWAYS do. If I could actually eat it I would order at least 2 if not 3 burgers from the menu, because they're all DELICIOUS!!!!
The prices here are incredible for the overall experience....Just writing this review is making me crave another original burger right now!!!
