We sat outside for lunch on a weekday. Food and server were great!
Great meal as usual at Five Napkin. My salad, tuna burger, fries and chocolate cake were all delicious. Service was great as usual. Will go back soon.
We were very happy with our food. Service was good, COVID protocols being followed. Prices were a little high but it is Manhattan.
Best veggie burger anywhere!!!
I love 5 Napkin Burger, and have only had take out since the pandemic, until the other night, when we were meeting our daughter in town for work, and we ate outside. We have not done much outside eating, nor had she, and it was a great treat for all of us. The food is always excellent and the service the same. We always have salads of various kinds with chicken or salmon added, and the food is consistently fresh, plentiful, well cooked, and delicious. The service is terrific too. Thank you again.
Alexandra is an excellent server who was always available.
$52.00 lunch with tax and tip was more than I had planned.
Great meal and great time! The service was also amazing.
A great place to get hamburgers and more. Nice ambiance and not too noisy. Excellent food.
We shared the tuna nachos and each had the 5 Napkin burger. Everything was well prepared and really good. I highly recommend both options! Service was friendly and pretty efficient and overall we felt very comfortable that all of the health and safety precautions were being met. The hot buttered bourbon was a nice treat while eating outside. Heat lamps help, but 37 degrees is 37 degrees!
Great for families
Wonderful young man took care of us. I wish I could remember his name. I think he is an actor. And I think we were there on Saturday.
Such an amazing dining experience. Everyone was social distancing and following protocol and it was great! Food was incredible!
Great food, great service. A little noisy, but that is because we ate outdoors.
Father’s Day meal
Went for what was supposed to be a special Father’s Day dinner my kids surprised me with. Food was great. Our waiter, hostesses, busboy, paid us no attention, never checked in, forgot items, expressed serious attitude when I asked for the 3rd time to simply get some water.
Our waiter told me he was ‘slammed’ outside which is why he had ignored us, when I looked I see him washing empty tables outside with no one waiting for them.
Honestly, I grew up in the restaurant business and your personnel there tonight on Father’s Day were the most disinterested group of people who could care less about any patron.
I purposely left a $0 tip for the first time in my life as the service literally had negative value.
You lost me as a customer. Never again.
Had an outdoor table for lunch. COVID measures adequate. Service was slightly slow but food was good and seating comfortable.
Lots of space for outdoor dining and easy ordering through website allows for a very safe dining experience for even the most wary of individuals. Food was good and staff attentive.
Great food, easy and simple to order from the phone, indoor and outdoor eating, great friendly service. I don’t have no complaints everything was great.
First the divider fell on us, the waiter was really slow, didn't even us bring straws, ordered a hot tea and he dropped the tea bag didn't offer to pick It up or bring a new one, menu not the same as on this website so i was disappointed, we ordered well done burgers they came out medium rare and brung our burgers with no buns just overall a bad experience
The food was great but the bathrooms were very dirty. In a time like this I would think that would be a priority. There was water all over the floor no soap or hand sanitizer. I went to a machine for hand sanitizer near the entrance and that machine was empty too!!! I would not go back
Good set up
Even though we had a reservation, we still had to wait an extra 20 minutes before sitting down. The hostess was very kind and sympathetic towards us, but the whole situation was not managed well. It would've been nice if the restaurant comped part of our order or a free drink, side, etc. They should have at least texted or call us beforehand that they would not have been ready to seat us at our reserved time. If they did that, we would have been more sympathetic to the situation.
I was not enthusiastic about going to 5 Napkin Burger UWS because it is a chain and i prefer to support the smaller restaurants during this difficult time for the restaurant business. But i must admit, my entree (Salmon over a classic salad) was surprisingly good. I was just surprised that they don't include bread with the salad like most restaurants. The food for the other 3 people in my family was also good. I would no longer discourage people from going here despite my attitude towards chains.
Enjoyed a very tasty burger with great service in a safe environment.
It was so nice to go back to Five Napkin Burger and dine outside. They have quite a few tables, including many on the quieter side street. I had the original burger salad with tuna, the sweet potato fries, and the chocolate cake. Everything was delicious and the service was great. I'll be going back very soon.
In an age where we must eat outdoors for safety, as a lifestyle choice, Five Napkin makes you feel right at home. Prompt service, attention to details, even if you don’t like your first choice of beer, they are accommodating and thoughtful. Come here for a family meal or meeting a friend any time of day or night. Not a bad taste or value to be had !
Had the best seat in the house with the corner table in the front surrounded by glass on two sides. Food has always been very good and fries are outstanding. Our waitress provided perfect service.
Family get together
Love the friendly greeting and wait staff and booth atmosphere. Sometimes, if you are seated near a large group the noise can make conversation difficult. But I always have a good time here, regardless of the ambient noise.
I was happy to find that the chef was open to using a protein to top my Texican salad that was not listed but was available in the Happy Hour section of the menu. The resulting salad was awesome. Grape tomatoes would be tastier than the wedges normally in the salad, and if you were to add avocado to this particular item - it would be perfect (for me, maybe others too?). My friend asked for a burger on a lettuce wrap and was happy that that was actually an option, without any extra charge.
No matter who I bring to this restaurant, they can always find something to eat and drink that suits them. Vegetarians, keto-friendly, meat lovers and kids, it's a good neighborhood eatery, across the street from the movie theater, CMOM and sandwiched between both Riverside and Central Parks!
Overall I enjoyed my meal but I felt I was crammed into these tables that weren’t far enough apart and it made I and the other guests uncomfortable.
Delicious food! Will be back again soon. The floor
More menu options on sides and burgers. It’s pretty limited food wise. The drinks were great though, the spiked milkshakes!!!
Love 5 Napkin burger. Been eating there for years. I think they have one the the best burgers in the city.
They also make a great margarita. Usually eat at the one in Times Square which is a bit noisier. This one is just as good with a lower noise and crowd level.
Love the french fries gluten free!
Cute for date night, or just an outing with friends the environment was warm and cozy and the food was comforting and filling. Looks exactly as pictured on Instagram.
The place is friendly and the food is pretty good. We had to ask for a little more liquor in the mixed drink as they tend to be a little watered down. The place is noisy.
We've been coming here for the last few weeks while staying in the area for physical rehab. The staff is very accommodating to our wheelchair needs and goes above and beyond to make us feel welcome.
The food and service are great. Would recommend you give them a try.
We were celebrating our daughter's 31st birthday. This is our daughter's favorite restaurant. She loves the burgers, fries, and apps. The entire staff, and especially the manager Greg, went out of their way to make an this incredibly special dinner for our daughter. Love this place!!!
The burgers were great. The service was not. Multiple servers were seen with nothing to do, we could not flag down any to find ours. Slow to take order, we received drinks well after food that was ordered at the same time. Save the tip and disappointment, order takeout.
Apart form the DEAFENING roar of happy eaters and pounding music, my group of four had a good time. The food is good, the drinks weak but interesting, service spotty but friendly. My guess is that Friday night is a busy time, hence the racket and iffy service. I'd advise going at an off-time for better service.
Nice tasty burger, very flavorful. Definitely a mess to eat but really good
