Description: 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.

I had great expectations for this restaurant based on their signage. (Yeah, I know...). The place was nicely appointed and well above the decor of a typical burger joint. Service was great. There is a full service bar if that is what you are looking for. Burgers were nothing special. I like mine medium rare, my friend well down. They got them mixed up. They recooked my friends; mine I suffered through as it was not bone dry. The manager was very nice about it and took 25% off the bill as a comp. The burgers were good, but personally I didn't think they were worth $15. The iced tea was outstanding.

Located at the Prudential Center shopping are! A great place for lunch before you embark on you Duck Tour. 5 Napkin Burger certainly describes the burgers well! Good food and exotic ice teas. For the kids....you get to make your root beer float at the table!

We waited 10 minutes at our table, while staff strolled by. Finally after my hungry son kept complaining he was hungry we decided to leave.

Pointless

The burgers were very good, however their milk shakes were very small and very expensive. My nephew needed 2 to quench his thirst.

A little much for a burger joint. I have had better and worse. Would not be my first choice next time, but would not say no if someone suggested it. I would not bring children. Although it is ok, it seems like at times it is more of an adult crowd. Service was good.
