    While the Umami burger is tasty it's not the best I've ever had. I did enjoy it though. I might have enjoyed the truffled fries more. Finish your meal with a cakewich. They're like gourmet Ring Dings.

    Best burger in town. Try truffle burger is amazing, phenomenal, and delicious. Their meats are very tasty(guarantee). Service is 8 out of 10. Price is above average.

    Eat the ketchup. Load it on each fry. Then ask for more. Also try the Earth Burger. Went here for the first time last night. DELICIOUS. Ps umami burger, if you see this, please sell me your ketchup.

    The truffle fries are awesome. I didn't really like the Umami Burger but the Manly Burger was pretty tasty. If you haven't been to Umami Burger, it may seem kind of hidden so look for Fred Segal.

    Santa Monica Burger (Ox Tail) was pretty good! Ask waiter for their top 3 favorite sauces and dip the burger in it. The jalapeño and garlic aioli sauce +++

    Try the Triple Pork Burger (with ground pork, chorizo and bacon with manchego cheese & pimento aioli). And the sweet potato fries...and tempura onion rings are good too. The only bad is the price.

    I unfortunately had a Truffle Burger that was overcooked when asked for medium rare. The burger itself is full of flavor but you need to get the right temperature. Smushed potatoes are a must!!!

    The socal burger is delicious. Really juicy! Most importantly, the burgers aren't that big so be sure to grab a side. Secret item: Cheesy tater tots aren't on the menu, but are pretty good.

    a burger is a burger is a burger. dress it up, dress it down. it's still a burger. yea, the beef is higher quality here but adding fancy fixin's doesn't make this any better than In-N-Out.

    ...enjoy a juicy Truffle Burger (with italian truffle cheese and a truffle glaze) with Thin Fries (add Aioli sauce) on the side! Drink a Hefe Weizenbier as well... Good Times! Read more

    The Umami Burger was the best decision I've ever made. Also the Smushed Potato with Garlic Aoili is amazing. Try the Umami ketchup sauce - tastes like barbeque tomato, yum :)

    Fancy pictures , bun and patties ; yes but horrible taste. Even the ketchup tastes horribly. We didn't finish our meals as i was going to throw up literally. The sauce they're are using is weird

    Hey there, I am at Umami Burger for the second time that is mean I love it and by I love it I mean I am a fan of it. I recommend to you to try Manly Burger which is the best.

    Skip this location. Service was slow, ambiance is too loud inside and the front door was unbearably squeaky. They said corporate was stalling on fixing it. Hollywood location is the best.

    First time here. Got the Original. Very good. Unique flavors. Meal was made very special as we were sat next to Robert Downy Jr and his kid. He had the Manly Burger. Now I know what to get next time!

    Truffle burger highly recommended; great veggie burger, too! For dessert, try Milk's Salted Caramel ice cream sandwich ... or any of the ice cream sandwiches. *yummy*

    I don't recommend the smushed potatoes as a side. Also, the earth burger wasn't good because it cannot cook as well done meet. Try " Vanilla Creme " as your drink !

    even the vegetarian option of a mushroom and edamame patty was pretty spectacular with the soy and truffle aioli. top notch, can't wait to get go back.

    The turkey burger left a little to be desired, but every other burger was amazing! Ask the waiter for cheese-filled tater-tots (not on the menu!)

    Truffle Burger was amazing with italian truffle cheese and a truffle glaze. Thin Fries add Aioli sauce. You can try homemade ketchup.

    Beer selection is really good but bar tenders don't know enough about beer to help you with your selection. I suggest ordering the Deadlift IPA.

    Truffle burger, Smother 'em fries... Who am I kidding? Go wild with whatever you want... Bring it on! You can't go wrong here... Enjoy!! (did I mention they have Duvel beer? Fuck yeah!)

    The Manly Burger is a must try, for both genders. Doesn't get much better than a burger topped with smoked salt onion strings and bacon lardons. Read more

    The service is blah ~ Pricey. Truffle burger was YUM but if in West Hollywood on La Brea CAFE MIDI has Edward's Burger that's far superior! ;)

    Manly Burger w/Bacon Lardons is the business. Get a side of Smushed Potatoes w/peppered butter, and a Hoegaarden and have a great day.

    Sides are the hidden treasure. Beet salad, house made pickle platter... Particularly good for cutting thru the umami richness. Oh baby!

    Get the Truffle Burger and sides of tempura onion rings w/ sweet potato fries + roasted garlic aioli & Umami ketchup. It's divine!

    Don't be deterred by the shut down demeanor of the address. The entrance is actually on 5th Street across Fred Segal parking lot 300 ft. away.

    This place is home to the best burger I've ever eaten. I'm so happy I moved to California so that divine truffle burger can be in my mouth more often.

    Restrooms are located in the dead strip mall. Exit through the glass doors at the back left of restaurant to get there.

    #1 burger place. Go for the truffle burger believe me you won't regret it!
  • Pontus A.
    The truffle burger is in my opinion the signature Umami burger. An ordinary burger with an extraordinary taste.

    Hatch burger, tots, ice cream sandwich :). Laura the waitress was attentive & friendly as well. Hour-Drive was worth it.

    If you want to try something different, get the Trattoria Burger. Pretty good. A little better than truffle burger.

    Don't go for the truffle burger. It's so good you'll. never want to get anything else, and you'll miss out on all the other stuff

    There's no sign! The entrance is on 5th street near the Fred Segal parking lot. It just says "Fred Segal" on the door.

    Hard to find a bad burger here, but the Hatch and Truffle are dangerously delicious. Get a side of cheesy tots ...

    They forgot our order, and made it to go. When we asked for our food they brought out soggy, cold good sporadically. It was terrible.

    This place is......weird. Not sure what all the hullabaloo is. Burgers are supposed to be gourmet. No substitutes and small menu.
