After theatre great hamburger and even great onion rings! They come on a pole with thousand island dipping sauce not oily and not heavily battered. The burgers were cooked exactly as ordered! The waiter was very attentive.

The chicken kabob dinner was small pieces of dark meat and some type of paste that was literally not edible. We had a reservation for six and they put us at a table for four and added two seats so we’re sitting in an aisle way.

The onion rings were the best part of our meals. I will not be returning to this restaurant.

Delicious salads and burgers. I like that you have several options of meat/fish/vegan to add into the salads. My sister loved the cranberry iced tea. Great pre-theater lunch that doesn't make you overly full.

Great appetizers. Server was a bit slow, but the hostess was great. Awesome music and ambiance - particularly for a Monday night.

I decided to try a new burger since I always go to shake shack and it surprised me. It is a really cute restaurant and the burger was great as weel as the sweet french fries. It is a little expensive when comparing with other burgers (15-17 dollar one burger) but it worth it.

I was given a free dessert since I mentioned I go there often and forgot if I send up for the rewards program.

Kids were very happy with their burgers and fries. This is a safe bet if keeping them satisfied is most important! Loved my watermelon-rhubarb cocktail. Just wished I had tried something other than a burger, which way too big and greasy to be enjoyable. Service was meh, but I wasn't expecting much.

Great food. Great waitstaff. A little understaffed, so just a little slow (but not bad). And typical NYC high prices. But overall we really enjoyed it.

Overall, 5 Napkin Burger was a great place to eat in between showings of The Cursed Child. Our waitress was amazing. My only complaint was that a Classic Cheeseburger includes White American and they don't carry Yellow American. Although, I have had this problem in other parts of the country, I did not expect to have it here in Manhattan!

I love ❤️ Five Napkin’s Beyond Burger & Brussel sprouts!! AMAZING! ❤️❤️ Try it & buy BYND, non-soy plant based burger that tastes like beef 🥩. My Bacardi & Diet Cokes (praying for Stevia or Sucralose Cokes) we’re wonderful & reasonably priced. 🙏 Love the Five Napkin ambiance & all the friendly associates! GO & try & buy

The food was great. The only thing I didn’t like that I made a reservation a week before and I had to wail almost 20 minuets for a table.

We visited for a 50th birthday celebration. It was our first time at 5NB and we loved it. The restaurant was full at 8.30pm and I’m glad we reserved ahead. When we got there we sat at the bar for a few drinks ahead of our meal and the ambiance was superb. There was a great buzz about the place and the burgers were pretty damn good too.
I would recommend and definitely return when I’m next in NY.

Came in for late lunch with 6. Had to ask for a waiter after 10 mins. Had to asked 4 times for water for the table from a few staff so after 20 mins finally got water service. Our table was obviously not assigned correctly to a waiter . Breakfast nachos were disappointing — over done eggs on black burned chips but with 6 it’s hard to send something back. Salads with burgers were all excellent. Also at 3pm music was blaring and had to ask several times to have it turned down — each time the waiter saying “what?”

Before making a reservation at 5NB I read the reviews which seemed to be good. However, my burger (cheddar bacon) was so BAD I took a few bites and left the remaining for the garbage.

The burger is very good. But for the price of the burger, fries should be included. As a result, this place ends up being quite costly.

Extremely disappointed. We moved from the NYC area 8 years ago. Always loved and talked up 5 Napkin Burger. July 24, 2019, were visiting friends and family in the NE and went into NYC for a Broadway show. Chose 5 Napkin Burger for lunch. Something's changed. Had the classic 5 Napkin Burger as had in the past, but the flavor wasn't there. Perhaps a new chef? New recipe? Something else? Don't know, but was extremely disappointed. The bloom is off the rose.

Had the spinach and artichoke dip and shared a bacon cheeseburger. Both were delicious. We were seeing a show after dinner and did not need to wait to be seated because of our reservation. Service was great! Fast but not rushed. Very friendly server!
