We were still eating our starter and the main came, there was no room on the table so they took it back, bad timing. The salmon was burnt when i adressed that, the waiter said “it has to be crispy”, there is a difference between burnt and crisp. The food was oke not amazing.

Burgers were great with lots of choice. Chicken burger was good too. Home cut fries were really skinny fries, but still tasty. Chocolate cake desert was amazing, huge and so light.
Ambiance was good, a relaxed and friendly vibe.

Best burger ever, all five of us agreed. Great waitstaff. Told them we had theatre tickets and they got us out in record time. Also, really liked using Open Table. Pricey but worth every penny.

We had the cheddar bacon burger and it was really really good. The restaurant was really busy and therefore also a quite noisy place, but surely recommendable if you are looking for a good burger in NY.

The best burger I have had in ages and a reasonable veggie choice as well. Good that they don’t force a shed load if sides and chips in you but you choose to add if you want. Nachos to die for!

The food was excellent--for the typical American junk food indulgence: burgers, fries, shakes, etc. It's also a little pricey for this type of food. But the service was terrible. To be fair I don't think it was the waitress's fault. They just don't have enough capacity in the kitchen. We were there @ 1p.m. on a Friday & she said something about everyone needing to get out quickly to make a show so I guess we hit it just before Friday matinees. But we sat for 30 minutes before the shake showed up. It was another 15 for the fries and another 15 for the burgers. I don't want to eat a meal serially. It's also very, very loud so not easy to talk. I would go again for the food--the shake was exceptionally good--but at a different time.

After one excellent experience with the classic salad and the service, and one disappointing one on another visit, I returned a month later at the restaurant's invitation and once again tried the same dish - the classic salad topped with the lamb/beef burger. This time the service was very attentive and the salad was once again excellent (after a mishap with an undercooked burger was quickly and easily corrected) and my faith in 5 Napkin Burger has been restored. My kudos to the management for reaching out to me. This restaurant is back on my go-to list.

Great pre-theater lunch spot. Good food, reasonably priced, friendly wait staff who are often overburdened at busy times. Extremely noisy but part of the ambience.
