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.

Very good Ahi Tuna burger

I visited here twice, the first time because I could not get into the Cheesecake factory. The food is tasty and the staff are very friendly. The Ahi Tuna burger (medium rare) was really good!

SERVICE. How would rate a place where you wait over 10 mins for a cup of coffee (supposedly being brewed) and it arrives at the table freshly cold and not hot? I guess there's a first time for everything. Well, at my first visit to the 5 Napkins I experienced the longest wait ever for a cup of (cold) coffee.... More

This is a nice place especially if you love burgers and big portions. Nice options of beers & wine however bit overpriced. You may try this place once if you are in Boston

This was just ok. I went in with high expectations but I believe there are much better options for the price. The burgers are just ok and the fries are below average.

Ate here on a Tuesday night and had the steak with polenta. Steak was slightly over and the polenta wasn't the greatest I've had, but there were good flavour combinations. The burgers did look great, so maybe should have gone for one of those. Service was very good, a decent spot
