We walked by around 5:30 PM and it was empty. Party of 5, 3 little kids. Came back around 6 and it was packed with a 25 minute wait. Not much room to stand around & wait --awkward door situation with the host stand. Not great for strollers, but not impossible. The cocktails were good. The burgers were very good.... More

Wanted something quick and kid friendly, this was only a block away from the InterContinental Hotel we were staying at. The food was fantastic, would definitely go back.

I love to meet people here for burgers at a reasonable price - not cheap, but not super expensive. I usually go to the one on 9th Ave, but sometimes in the UWS on Broadway in the 80's. Nobody is not happy with their meal here. Since I am a pescatarian, I usually get their tuna burger, yummm or their... More

We ate here by chance during the NYC Marathon weekend. We had the most delicious salad bowls. We loved the concept of selecting the type of salad "base" and then choosing the add-on protein. I had the kale salad base with the tuna tataki steak and my friend had the burger salad with grilled chicken. We sat at a table... More

My wife and I visited 5 Napkin Burger after going to see a show, the restaurant was understandably busy but we were seated pretty quickly. Slight delay with ordering and my wife asked to change her regular fries for sweet potato fires, when the food arrive the changes hadn't been made and we promptly alerted the server, who said they...

Visiting NYC and having quiet a good dinner without spending a fortune is not that easy. Five napkins is a place that you can eat a lot, tasty and not spend a fortune. We went as a party of 8 we all have different entries and we all loved it. The mushroom burger was amazing. Highly recommended

I was in New York City for thanksgiving with family. The burgers were absolutely amazing. The second you bite into them, juice comes straight out! They were so moist, and perfectly cooked. I had the bacon cheddar burger, and the bacon in that was so delicious. The entire atmosphere of the place was very family friendly, and definitely welcoming. The... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
