We stopped in because of the name. It lived up to it's name. The juiciest burger ever. My partner had the burger on his salad. It's upscale and lively. Service was awesome. We went there two night in a row. Thank you Alex

I arrived in Manhattan jet lagged and needing a good meal before heading for sleep. Saw this place across from my accommodations and headed over. Great decor, snappy service, delicious burger. I’ll definitely be back.

Very good Burger, one of the fewer places in Manhattan / Midtown where you can sit as well outside (to whom it likes). You can sit outside, have very good burger and beer and enjoy the loud noises and the action/life this city has and...More

We dined with our two young daughters on a busy Friday evening. The service was spectacular, the burgers were the best we've had and we never felt rushed. Our daughters loved the milkshakes too! We will be back.

We had an amazing meal here on our last day in NYC. Worth the walk back to Grand Central. Looking forward to our next time in the USA to find another 5 Napkin.

This is just a terrific place to hang out and have a top notch burger and fries. They have depth to their menu with plenty of choices if burgers aren't your thing. Also, the service was really terrific.

My children are cheeseburger connoisseurs so we always try to find a burger place for lunch when we go out of town. The milkshakes were tasty, the blueberry mint lemonade was amazing, the salads were great, and my husband uttered "This is probably the best...More

Unless something has changed recently they did not have a "printed" gluten free menu, but our waiter knew everything and went all the way to accommodate me. I do the Virgin diet (no gluten, no dairy, grass-fed beef, etc... More

What would happen if we took the burger we loved and built a restaurant around it? Usually, it’s done the other way around: come up with an idea, create the menu, build the restaurant. Well, not this time! We had the burger – the original 5 Napkin Burger – 10oz of 100% all natural Angus chuck from Aspen Ridge, griddled to desired temperature, topped with gruyere cheese, caramelized onions and rosemary aioli on a soft potato roll. This is the burger, Chef Andy’s burger. Then, and now, it remains our guide. We strive to elevate the burger experience to its top shelf – because you & your burger deserve better. While other “burger joints” serve their burgers in wax paper, or in a cardboard box, 5 Napkin Burger holds itself to a higher standard. Burgers this great deserve to be served stacked high on a real plate, at a table with a proper setting, & with a great glass of wine or a craft beer. A 5 Napkin Burger could never be eaten standing up. Knife & fork is optional – 5 Napkins required.
