5 Napkin Burger is an upscale restaurant devoted to the art of the hamburger. The signature is 10 oz of fresh ground chuck topped with rosemary aioli, caramelized onions and melted gruyere on a soft white roll. The full burger lineup includes the all-American Bacon Cheddar, Italian Turkey, Avocado Ranch, Mushroom Bleu, Veggie, Lamb, Tuna, Inside Out, even a Burger Salad. While the burgers may be the headliners, the diverse menu of expertly prepared American classics entice foodies to come back nightly. 5 Napkin is the rare burger restaurant where vegetarians and carnivores are equally at home. Additional temptations include expertly prepared sushi maki rolls, Matzo Ball Soup, Steak Frites and Fish & Chips. The 5 Napkin beverage programs showcases a global selection of 60 wines and 80 beers, 10 signature cocktails, 40 bourbons and a host of decadent milk shakes and floats – all a perfect complement to the cuisine.

Wanted a quick burger and thought this was a "fast-food" joint, but were we wrong! 5Napkin Burger (5N for short) is a very nice sit-down restaurant with a pretty extensive menu. We had just gotten to Boston and had not gotten used to $15 hamburgers, so we opted for the $9.75 slider dish where you get to chose two (of... More

A good place to have a tasty burger and some beer or cocktails. The service is normal. Located in a good place accesible from the mall.

We were greeted immediately and seated. The waitstaff was friendly and informative, and our orders taken efficiently. The burger was well-cooked, the french fries were a little dry, and a bit pricey at $18.

An exemplary place for a variety of foods, but an oasis of burgers for those who can't live another day without one. Maximum flavor, crunchy fries, fresh greens, and top-notch table service.

I've had excellent hamburgers here, and really good fish and chips. Wait until you're hungry, and want something relatively fast. Cocktails are surprisingly good.

This place was kind of disappointing. It took forever to be seated. They were out of several menu items. The nonalcoholic drink selection was not great. Then, our server constantly forgot about us. It took ten minutes to track him down to get mayo in a burger restaurant! I probably won't return.

Staying in Back Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Back Bay
Wander around this quintessential neighborhood in the heart of Boston for high-end shops, restaurants, and the feeling of city bustle. Its most identifiable skyscrapers, the Prudential Center and John Hancock Tower, are highlights of the city skyline. Visit Newbury street to explore unique and trendy boutiques – as well as every other kind of store imaginable – all housed in beautiful brownstone buildings. In nice weather, restaurant patio seating is packed with Bostonians and tourists alike soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the food. Commonwealth Ave offers a beautiful stroll down residential tree-lined streets. Keep walking towards the Charles River and enjoy a beautiful view by the water. In warmer months, people run and bike on paths running along the esplanade, and sail and kayak on the Charles River. Boylston street, also full of shops, bars, and restaurants, is the finish line of the Boston Marathon. Head towards Copley Square and check out the Boston Public Library, which is particularly beautiful from the Dartmouth street entrance.
