I think they did a great job with the COVID situation. The menus on your person smart phone were confusing. I am grateful the waiters we helpful with by-passing it.

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.

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.

Terrible for food allergies. before making a reservation, I confirmed that the restaurant could accommodate a dairy allergy. I was told yes. Upon arrival, the hostess and server were made aware of this. The server took the order and said he would forward the information along to the kitchen. Two bites into dinner and my child started to develop a reaction. I urge anyone with food allergies to rethink dining here.

We came to see Harry Potter and the Cursed Child Parts 1 & 2. During the break we came to 5 Napkin Burger for dinner. Our reservation was for 5:30 but we arrived around 5. The staff was fantastic and we were seated within 10 minutes which was just enough time to freshen up.

Dinner was amazing as always. We had the burger salad with the Lamb burger. Service was quick and friendly so we had plenty of time to have coffee and get back in time for part 2 of the play

Everything was fine, except one glitch...the "February special burger," which was featured on the front of the menu, was not available. Took my family to lunch here on Feb. 8th, which was my birthday. We had a big day planned in NYC & 5NB was our 1st stop of the day. That "special burger" sounded yummy & so I ordered it. A short time later, our server came to the table to apologize that the restaurant wasn't prepared to make that burger! She said they could put it together, somehow, but it didn't sound like it was worth the wait :( So much for "specials!"Otherwise, no complaints!!!
