    Truffle burger is very good. Try also the sweet potato fries.

    Best combo: truffle burger, truffle fries and ginger beer. This Umami is way better than the Grove one.

    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.

    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.

    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.
