    A bit pricey, but the burgers are pure overkill! Great place.

    Truffle burger is the way to go. I have to say though...this place definitely had something special about it, but...It has definitely been lacking.

    Best couture burger chain I've ever been to. The sunny side burger sent me to heaven and back. Hands down, these burgers rival any top burger in the country.

    AMAZING. So delicious. We ordered the Umami Burger, the Beef Sliders, the Manly Burger, Sweet Potato Fries and Tempura Onion Rings, and with everything they gave us four different dipping sauces.

    Umami joints hasn't let me down yet. Burger was great, juicy, soft on that perfect bun with that perfect parmesan chip and an altogether archetype of what a gourmet burger ought to be in Los Angeles.

    There's a reason this is the burger that launched a movement: it's that good. The roasted slice of tomato? Yes. The salty crisp of Parmesan? Yesss. That killer meat patty? Yesssss. Read more

    After a day of shopping on Colorado Boulevard or checking out the Huntington Gardens, hit up Umami for a craft beer and one of their burgers. Read more

    $15 dollars for a small burger with no sides. I'm not drinking the Kool Aid. It's not worth it.

    Everything has ketchup. So if you don't like ketchup or spicy flavoring then skip this place. Also not much plain for kids so don't bring them either. In fact don't come unless you are a hipster.

    Granted, the burgers are good. But I just spent $50 on a burger, fries, a desert, and a couple of beers. Was it good. Sure. Does it provide a value where I want to come back on a regular basis? Nope.

    I personally find Umami a tad overrated, but they're definitely burger innovators and no tour of the LA burger scene would be complete without a visit.
