My friend had the new vegan chicken sandwich and enjoyed it very much. I had the delicious Impossible burger and the brussel sprouts (spicy, tasty). We split the onion rings, yum. Also, we had several small requests of the server and she met them all immediately. Five Napkin restaurants across Manhattan are spacious and comfortable, and I've been to another location with a toddler, and that was also a commendable experience.

They called an hour before and canceled. Did not get to go or did they help with providing any suggestions —-the call was very cold and you think they would had at least offered stop in for a free app for the issue. It’s NYC on Saturday we were unable to find anything last minute to eat besides a diner. Bad customer service.

Returned here after we had a really nice evening a few years ago. Something must have changed in management or concept. The man greeting us at the door was wearing an old worn sweater and old used jeans. The waiter was friendly and competent although a second waiter (not wearing any “official” clothes) approached us 2 times asking for things the normal waiter had already asked us. She was not impolite or something! The whole situation just seemed kind of “uncoordinated”.
The food was okay - not a blast but decent food for the pricing range.

Good burgers and fries, but service was a little slow. I think there was only one server for the dining area and it was fairly busy. Food was slow to come out too--I think we waited almost 40 min for a party of 4. Just ordered burgers and fries.

Had cheeseburgers and sweet potato fries. It was good but for burger joint it should be exceptional. Our waitress/bartender Christine was why I pushed another star! She was personable, funny and quick! Great service Christine!!

Food was good. I did not like that staff was not wearing masks. Yes we did need vaccinations cards, but still not comfortable with staff.

A great casual dinner at a fun, boisterous restaurant. Food was excellent and hot, service was great. Only negative thing i can say is that the bathroom could use a good scrub. I would go back.

We had the lunch special, which was a simple $8 burger. Hit the spot, especially with the side of disco fries

It's overvalued. on the page they turn it out of the clouds, but when it comes to truth, it's really bad, the restaurant is dirty. the only good thing about there are the waiters and the hamburger

5 Napkin Burger did not disappoint for my first post lockdown business lunch. Delicious burgers, attentive service, and a beautiful autumn day made for a delightful outdoor dining experience.

Just perfect for a quick lunch. I had a salad with grains and a turkey burger, which was delish and just made and juicy. My lunch companion had the kale salad with salmon which she said was good. Service was quick and pleasant. A little loud, but that is how it is in a busy restaurant at lunch. They gave me a free second diet coke which was nice!

Five Napkin Burger and lobster rolls were both good and we love the shakes, but noise level was so high we really could not have a conversation. We'll still probably return, however, because of location and quality of food and reasonable price.

Great fries and guacamole, good burgers, wish they had more options or toppings. Overpriced burgers, but very good. I think for $17 you should get a side with the burger and not have to pay another $8 for fries. Five guys is just as good and half the price.

We went on our family Valentine’s Day date. 2 adults and 2 kids under 9. It was great. They are VERY kid friendly (special menu, crayons) but I have also been there with just my husband and really enjoyed it. The food is very good as are the drinks. It was loud but that was perfect for drowning out our 5 year old. Not too loud that it was distracting however...more like vibrant and exciting loud.

We like the 5 Napkin Burger signature burger, even though it feels a bit overpriced. The ambience is busy and bustling, so it's not a relaxing meal. But it's a better treat (especially the shakes) than McDonald's!
