    The burger were really tasty as they are unique and different from the typical American Burger. I ordered Truffle fries and it was amazing.. I really enjoyed the thinness of the fries there ;)

    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.

    Seriously creative burgers! Some of the best and most interesting burgers I have ever had! If you haven't been here yet, I recommend it. Certainly the best burger in Santa Monica.

    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 +++

    Bring napkins, burgers are very drippy. Definitely lives up to its name, the food here has an Umami mushroomy sensation. Nice vibes and service, a somewhat upscale burger chain.

    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 :)

    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.

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

    The different burger patties are made and prepared with attention to detail with great tasting meat and other options. If you love burgers or even if you don't you can't go wrong here.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    ...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
  • Josiah David C.
    High-quality and riddled with finesse, the flavors are too experimental and diverse for the average burger lover. My recommendation: take all the sauces on the side and go for a simple burger option.

    tater tots are the bomb. service is fast and waiters and watresses are friendly and attentive. ask for kat and get the hatch burger.

    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 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!)

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

    Tempura onion ring is good. I prefer greenbird burger (turkey) over ahi tuna burger

    Save the ahi sandwich for The Habit, but you can't beat their burgers! And onion rings!

    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.

    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.

    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*

    If I say I want to add avocado on my burger, I want avocado on my burger! I don't care what the Umami seasoning gods have to say about that :D

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

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

    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.
