    Truffle burger & fries are a must try here: Everything about Umami burger is perfect. The portions, the options and the quality!

    Unique burgers. Truffle burger was great! Not enough burger for the $. If you're not a sociable person this place isn't for you because you're guaranteed to rub against the neighboring table.

    get the Manly burger medium well, use the G pen or Omicron before you eat. Fries not necessary, get a Mexican Coca-Cola (real sugar cane)

    I could eat the cheesy tots all day. Sit at the bar if you want to avoid the claustrophobic booths.

    The fried pickles are served as spears, not as chips. Tart, hot and juicy but only the barest coating of batter. Different from other fried pickles I've seen.

    You gotta try the Diablo Burger. It's not on the menu, but it's fan-freakin-tastic! I don't like blue cheese but I love this burger!

    Our bartender Michelle was awesome! But I felt like the burger was way to small for the price. And like all Umami's I hate the way they give you their sauces. Here's a drop of ketchup, you want more

    Went the first week they were open. Service a bit slow and confused but great food esp the onion rings. Got food to go but they have no takeout counter. You have to wait on stools at counter.

    Stuart sucks! He told me to get the tuna burger which was salty. texture of the tuna was so odd. It was ground up tuna but it felt like meat. I expected a tuna steak or filet in my burger. Not cool

    Be prepared to wear a sign on your head that says " YES, I AM A CUSTOMER AND YES, I AM HERE TO EAT!" or else the employees will look at you like you're a fucking bear until you ask to be seated.

    Eh. A burger. On a brioche bun. With some "once" interesting ingredients. I'm not impressed. Sweet potato fries didn't need the extra sugar added. Decor is rad. Food is eh.

    50 cents. Please. Better burger, better atmosphere, right down the road at Laurel Tavern. Oh and they won't charge you for more sides. Usually u don't need 2 ask 4 more because they give u enough.

    Don't come here as a party of 3; it is their policy to cram you into one table by turning it sideways... until you complain to the manager.
