We wanted a casual, non-hectic place for a burger and salad before a play. This place fit the bill in every aspect; we were delighted with the food, service, uncrowded space between tables and the atmosphere! We will definitely return.

Took my team to 5 Napkins as an outing. We enjoyed the food and the drinks. Some observations: entrées were delivered while we were still eating the appetizers. When asking where bathrooms were located, staff wasn't very helpful, just said around the corner.
We work in the Hotel industry so customer service is important to us.

We ate at 5 Napkin the first time 5 or 6 years ago when the burger craze was in its infancy and were blown away by this place. Despite the proliferation of really good burgers, 5 Napkin still holds up. Our serve was great and very accommodating to our 3 and 5 year old boys.

5 Napkin Burger was by far the best burger joint I have ever been to! (Have been to a fair few in my time) Service was great and our server James was courteous and patient while we decided upon our choice from the menu! The food was amazingly good and I couldn't get over how good my burger was. Would definitely go back again!

We enjoyed our dinner at 5 Nampik Burger but my so found hard fatty pieces in his burger. The staff were very happy to help and wound up taking the burger off the bill. Two other people hasd burgers and did not find bad pieces in their food. The burgers were good but nothing great. The shakes were delicious.

Very fast service! Crowded, but with the reservation we had our table on time. Perhaps ask for a space not by the door - very cold with people going in and out. (Restaurant had extra winter doors in place, but large crowds going in/out would hold all three open at once.)

Our waiter was fantastic- very knowledgeable about each menu choice and gave great ideas and recommendations. We no sooner ordered an appetizer and out it came from the kitchen. Even though the place was very busy, our waiter made us feel like we were the only ones he needed to worry about. Price and quality are a perfect match for the restaurant. Looking forward to going back when in NYC again. Great Job! (Just wish I could remember the waiters name.)

Took my grandkids to the show Endangered which is right next-door to the hills kitchen location. I do not eat meat and was pleasantly surprised with the salads and the seared tuna. It was excellent. I feel comfortable in this restaurant with the kids or six years old. Service was great.

This was my second trip to 5 napkin burger in the last couple of months. I came in October with work and loved it so on a trip to NY with my fiancé I had to take him back as I knew he’d love it, and it didn’t disappoint. The staff were friendly, the food was delicious and the cocktails are amazing. And all very reasonably priced. I’d recommend it to anyone.

Overall, excellent restaurant and I highly recommend. We arrived 1 hour before our reservation and without hesitation and with great purpose they sat us in a very comfortable round corner table. Our waiter quickly orientated us to the menu and fulfilled our drink order. Water and drinks were kept topped off throughout the meal which was awesome. Pickles were in endless supply. All food was prepared to order and delicious. There was nothing left on our plates! We will return....soon ...especially for the Korean BBQ wings. Yum.

We ordered 2 bacon cheddar burgers, 1 kids burger with bacon, cheese, lettuce and tomato, and one kids hotdog. The kids burger came missing the bacon and had to go back. The burger was perfectly cooked medium rare as we ordered it. The 2 bacon cheddar burgers were over cooked. The one that was ordered medium rare was closer to medium well. Just a hint of pink. The burger ordered medium, was well done. Both went back. The next time the burgers came back, the medium burger was perfect, and the medium rare was way beyond well done. I called the manager over at that time. The manager did get the burger right, And bought the kids a shake and a sundae. I was very disappointed with this five napkin.
