Umami Burger - Anaheim
Had the impossible burger and it literally was the BEST BURGER I have ever eaten. I’m not vegan or vegetarian and I love trying burgers everywhere. Bar none, this tops meat burgers I’ve had. Must try!
Ordered the impossible burger and let them know I was a vegetarian. Burger came out with the flag for impossible burger on it. After two bites, noticed the inside was pink, the waiter said he was positive it was correct but would triple check with the kitchen and when he came back, he said he was so sorry, the kitchen made a mistake. There is NO excuse for this. I would not suggest this restaurant to any vegetarian or vegan under any circumstances, it is not worth the risk.
The manager apologized, big deal, how can a kitchen make this mistake?
Great food and service, portion size was perfect. Really cool atmosphere.
Umami Burger has very tasty food but the service in this location has been declining over the last five years. Well-made burgers in a historical building but don’t expect a warm/happy greeting or service, but be pleasantly surprised if you receive one. Drinks are getting better, really enjoyed two this time.
Very nice burgers. Good portions and incredible taste. Recommend to order the Impossible burger. Great experience at Anaheim.
Impossible burger was ok. Not too flavorful, but it kept its shape.
Worst experience ever. My family and I have been going here since it opened in 2012 and this was by far the worst service we’ve ever experienced. It was a Sunday and not packed, plenty of open tables. We made a reservation for 7 on OpenTable and our table was not ready. They pushed tables together when we arrived and they had plenty of time to have had our table set up. We waited over 10 minutes to even be acknowledged after sitting down and I had to request menus from the hostess (usually menus are given when you are seated). A nice waitress offered to help our server who at this point had not greeted us yet (Cristian) and got us our drinks. Cristian then took our order (I watched him come to each one of us and write our order down). We waited longer than usual for our meal (almost an hour) but we didn’t mind as we were all chatting. When our meal arrived, my son’s kids sliders had some sort of soy sauce on it. Cristian says that’s because the cooks put that on it (no they do not). We asked for plain sliders (meat and bun only) x 2 (one for my son and my daughter). My son now had to wait again for his food. My daughter’s sliders had cheese on them, luckily she still ate it. I he ordered sweet potato fries that according to the server delivering the food, Our waiter Cristian never put in. We ordered a truffle burger with egg and the burger arrived with no egg. My two sons drank all their soda but no one came to refill them, instead my sons had to walk up to the bar to get refills. When my fries and my sons sliders finally came, no ketchup was on it so I requested ketchup. When I got the bill I was charged for 7 orders of ketchup! Also they charged me for an extra order of sliders which was their mistake!!! All of these issues from the moment we sat down to the minute we left and their manager JAMES never once came to our table to apologize for anything. CRISTIAN blamed it on being a “busy” night and said he’s “only a bartender”. We will never go here again.
Delicious food, the burgers are amazing, great ambience and staff!
Service was great friendly. Food is always great.
Delicious burgers! Meat is flavorful, tender, and juicy. The onion rings were also great! I had the truffle burger and it did not disappoint.
The burgers are flat/out phenomenal.
Brought my girlfriend in for lunch on her birthday Wednesday 7/31 at 1:15pm. The food i always amazing. but our server and host around this time were EXCELLENT. They even fulfilled our request and brought her burger out with a candle on it. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
Great Staff. Super friendly. MUSIC is WAY TOO LOUD on outside patio. And I am a music lover. We could not hear our own conversations. Patio was not crowded. Music was turned to lowest possible volume.....I'm a music lover and enjoy dining outdoors. But the music verity, volume fluctuation was not acceptable. Total distraction.
I had the seared tuna & greens salad. It was very disappointing. Lettuce used was common iceberg lettuce. Was a very small portion. Didn't have a lot of taste. Was not worth the money. So this review is not based on their signature item. But I was a little disappointed just in case you're trying to be healthier then you're friends and go for something else like I did.
Awesome staff, good vibes, and good wine. Would recommend
Great food with great service. Will be back again soon!
This dining experience was to celebrate my son‘s high school graduation. He wanted a gourmet burger. His burger was average as were the rest of ours. The hit of the evening was the truffle french fries. We had no less than four different people helping us and their service seemed very scattered and disorganized. The food was decent the drinks were rather overpriced and we could not get a reservation for 630 because they claimed to be booked but when we left at 7 o’clock, the restaurant was virtually empty. Definitely need to improve their service and up their game if they are going to charge such prices in such a unique area for such unique burgers. Also, my daughter is a vegetarian and they were out of all vegetarian burger options. Not acceptable for a Friday evening.
Poor service and overpriced burgers. Wished we had gone to another restaurant.
Great burgers. Excellent service.
Impossible Burgers are grossly overpriced and were served to us lukewarm. Jardiniere in SF, an upscale dining establishment, also premiered the Impossible Burger in 2016. Price is the same at Jardiniere, $16, burger is much more sizable, and comes with side of pommes frites whereas burger is a la carte at Umami. The burger itself did closely resemble the taste of beef, but Umami Burger cannot be credited for this, as they did not create the burger, they just serve it.
Great server, the recommendations were excellent. Food quality was amazing
The burgers were outstanding. Our waiter was great as well!
Nephews birthday. They accommodate 9 of us no problem and the service was impeccable. Will definitely go back. Really close to packing Distric so you could hang there before or after for something to do.
Great food and good beer with excellent service. Will be back soon.
We had a travel zoo voucher and it was worth using. Food was great. Service a bit slow. IMHO a bit pricey but, its gourmet. Be warned. Medium rare is more on the rare side. If you don't like runny red, go medium.
Yes, try the Impossible Burger....a little pricey, it's a novelty right now...may go down in price once you can purchase Impossible at Super Markets? Yeah, it does have soy and gluten in it...
Good neighborhood Place that is clean with good service. A good variety of food including Pokey and burgers along with wine bar. Recommend
Impossible burger - Less moist than expected. Was expecting more pink like meat.
The rest of the food was excellent. Onion rings are divine.
Interesting look with use of repurposed license plates. Lots of hard surfaces so very noisy, hard to have a conversation across a small two-top table. Burgers are expensive for what you get, had decent flavour, but was not cooked to the ordered temp (medium-Medium Rare is not raw or bleeding). Could not eat most of it, server never asked why. Parking was also a challenge; valet was full, lots were full, had to scramble for spots on the street. Has potential but not planning on returning unless I knew that lots of staff issues had been resolved.
Great burgers and beer selection.
Love the place but $16 for a double veggie burger I can only afford to go on special occasions. Like once a year.
We had a wonderful experience at Umami! Our bartender was also our server and set us up for a successful night with his recommendations! From the lollipop chicken to the egg burger, we enjoyed every bite! We needed to get out of there in a fairly short period of time, and they hustled us through, but we never felt rushed. Awesome experience in a very cool spot!
I'm not vegan but i do not eat meat or cheese and they had great options for my boyfriend and I. They're beyond meat burgers were so bomb! I have had the beyond burger at other restaurants and at home and the patty is delicious but Umami made the best tasting beyond patty i have had yet. We ordered beyond sliders and i loved the charred flavor it had. We also ordered beyond burgers and were loving every bite. I also ordered the spicy margarita. I was hesitant because i am not a fan of spicy drinks but theirs was delicious. The spiciness only gave me a little kick at the back of my throat every now and then but i loved it.
The food at Umami Burger was excellent and we received wonderful and attentive service.
Unfortunately they were out of many items due to it being a couple days after the Superbowl. Overall it was a good meal.
Very disappointing experience in Anaheim branch tonight. Waited 1 hour 15 mins for a cold burger. Not advised of any delay on arrival. The manager said that they were very busy!
Overall experience was great!
Visited with a friend
Service was attentive yet gave us space to visit
Great food; innovative drinks
Everything was outstanding— our server Austin was terrific!
