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.

Pretty ok

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

Kung pao bowl = way too much sauce, extremely salty Service was good, bit slow, but it was busy with us runners all around, so we used the... More

Being late and freezing weather a quick search of the area prompted Five Napkin Burger. We walked in possibly just a few mins before closing. We were concerned that as the restaurant was wrapping up... More

Visited here while in Boston and enjoyed the food. Fast, friendly and attentive service, good range of meals available and good portions size. Tasted great and would definitely go back.

I read the reviews about the one napkin supply, to believe that there is only one napkin available to you is no ones fault but your own. Both beef and veggie burger alike, not a detail overlooked. As someone with a veggie preference I have to say without a doubt that they have the best veggie burger I've ever had,... More

We ordered the traditional burger, it was not up to my expectation, I felt really sorry about it. The burger simply did not have any taste at all. On the contrary starters, onion rings, patato skins, guacamole was great. We asked whether there is a free wifi, the reply was positive but never been able to connect because there was... More

The sliders at the burger place are fabulous! The spicy cheddar cheese burger and sweet potato fries were to die for!
