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.

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!!!

I had a great time here. It was my first time eating here and I'll be sure to recommend it to others. My daughter has celiac disease and other food allergies and it wasn't a big deal at all. They have dedicated fryers and are very knowledgeable. We'll be back again for sure!

One of the better burgers in NYC. A bit pricey, however. Might be “theater district” pricing for this location.

I have never had a bad meal yet. the salads are just superb, and the chef knows just how to cook a good piece of salmon “black and blue.” your restaurant is always my “go-to,” and I never seem to tire of it.

Kid Friendly spot with great burgers- but they don’t come with anything. Sweet potato fries were good - regular were nothing special. Burgers are better than most pubs and they serve drinks so if you have a hankering for a burger go here. Recommend you make a reservation as it is usually crowded.

One of my friends is a chef from Long Island and he went as far to say his burger was one of the best he’s had in a very long time. Awesome food, great service, overall outstanding experience! We will be sure to come back next time we are in the area!

although I like the restaurant very much and think the food and the service is always good, I think some sort of side should be included with the meal. $17 for a hamburger is on the high side, and including smoe fries or a small side salad would be appropriate.

I took my daughter and her two friends for dinner before a show and we had a very tasty meal. I had a bug salad with a burger on top and each girl had a burger with fries. The kitchen was kind enough to split a milkshake three ways for the girls.
We enjoyed and were surprised by the sophisticated ambience.
