Simply one of the best burgers you will find. Go for the taste, not the size or the price. The maple bacon fries are the perfect accompaniment. Service is always excellent and the prices are reasonable for the quality of food you receive. Whenever I have a burger fix I go to this spot.

This was great. Went here with my family (6 people total). We each ordered our own entree and then 3 fries for the table to share. The truffle fries were the favorite. Would definitely go back.

Pre-Segerstrom dinner. Food was ok. Really expensive for a burger, and every one was over done. Super loud. Server was great.

They have four choices of the Impossible burger and all of them are delicious.
The truffle burger paired with onion rings is fantastic!

Burgers are $13-$15 and up. Beef is tasty but burgers are very small and don't come with any sides. Overpriced and seating and parking is very limited. Looks like a takeout restarant. Will not be back.

Had reservations for a party of 10. I know that large parties can be hard but we were literally half of the restaurant so they could have had another server assist. Service wasn’t great - only some of us got plates/ utensils for appetizers so we had to place the stems of the shishedo peppers we ordered on the table; no drink refills. Had to ask for napkins....

Burgers are delicious! Loaded tater tots are a little too big which makes the cheese overwhelming. Overall very yummy place and a little pricey.

Food quality and taste has really gone DOWN since I last ate there a while ago. We remembered it being so good...definitely NOT anymore. It was a huge disappointment. We are never going back. Our server was nice tho but that’s about it.

Parking is a nightmare. The place is in a tiny mini-mall and all the spots are usually filled and surrounding lots only allow parking for their customers

Really enjoyed this place. Been driving by here every day for over a year and finally have it a try and I’m so mad I haven’t been here earlier. They have vegan and vegetarian options which is why I really wanted to try this place. I got the impossible burger and it was delish! Will be back for sure. Lucky it’s only 2 min from my house :)

Hamburger is definitely different flavor , it hits all the senses , little bit pricey but overall is great burger. Parking is bad during dinner. It has free valet parking in the back. Service is great will go again and try different burger on the menu.

We were visiting from Washington for the OC 1/2 marathon and Umami came up on our Google search for burgers. We totally enjoyed the food- delicious! The service and our waitress were great! We would definitely come back again when in the area and have also recommended Umami to our friends that live in California!! Thank you.

Initial service was slow and unwelcoming. Eventually our server got started with us. The food came out promptly. Our waters stay filled. I have been to various Umami locations in LA & prefer them over this location.

Food is good. One of the few places for the famed Impossible burger. Service could use some work. Don’t blame customers for getting the order wrong, when the kitchen staff came and hand delivered our food and said that they didn’t receive the right instructions from the server. Also, several tables were served before us, despite us being the first to be seated.
