Umami Burger - Costa Mesa
Great server! He was very knowledgeable and helpful.
I like the burger which is really tasty and the food came out pretty fast.
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.
BEST BURGERS EVER!
My girlfriend and I come here as often as we can.
It’s our go to “date night” spot every time.
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
Great food, excellent service!!!
Really good food. Great beer selection! Try the manly burger!
Excellent burger and fries...parking was a hassle.
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 :)
The burger itself was good but I would say this place is overpriced, overrated.
I tried the truffle burger and it was very tasty. I also tried the maple bacon fries and that was yummy goodness.
Great choices n price was reasonable. I cant wait to come back again n get some impossible burgers
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.

Yummy burgers and the help is cute. Can't beat that.
Delish! Love all the vegetarian options! Servers are great and it’s a fun place for a casual meal with FABULOUS tasting food.
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.
Except for the parking, we had a great time there, the host took good care of us and explained everything to us 1st timers. The food was fantastic and we will definitely be back again!
Best burger I ever had
The food was delicious.
The waiter was very helpful in explaining menu since our first time there.
He was very attentive and energenic.
Small but great atmosphere.
Had a hard time finding parking on a Sunday.
You can never go wrong with an amazing burger and a kine beer
Food was good and consistent with most locations but the servers at this location are excellent. Very friendly and efficient.
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.
Ordered the trio and maple/bacon/sweet potato fries. The trio of sandwich’s were well done and the fries were super sweet. The balance was way off, way too sweet.
Great food and great service.
I made the reservation specifically for a regular table and they ended up sitting us at a bar style table. There was no need to specify a table type in my reservation if they were going to ignore it.
Great place for a yummie burger and fun with friends or a special date night out!
Enjoyed this place.
Different, trendy, & great food!
I tried the “Impossible burger” 🍔 and it was very delicious. The best vegetarian burger 🍔 I have ever eaten and paired with tempura onion rings I was in heaven!
Thanks for a great “Umai” meal! Our group loved EVERYTHING, especially the maple bacon fries, tempura onion rings, California Samurai and Impossible Burgers!
Our first visit to Umami was a great experience. The service was extremely good. The Costa Mesa location is rather small so we appreciated being able to make a reservation. The menu is varied and the food amazing. Original, tasty and fun. We will certainly be back!
They got my wife's order wrong once and my order wrong twice, and and undercooked my food. They were to pre occupied with being a hipster restaurant than having good service. The waitress didn't even right down what we ordered she just acted like she had it all from memory and all cool like.. and the food ended up being not even that great.
My first time tasting umami burger and wasn't blown away. Still prefer In N Out. Also didn't like the truffle fries which had a sauce and made the fries soggy. Sweet potato fries were better. Service was very good though, and waiters were friendly and helpful.
Went in to try the new Impossible Burger that is served at this location. It was ok... did not feel as good as it was hyped up to be. Service was good... crowded place.
WAY more "ambiance" & a big bar & patio at the Anaheim location. The brussels sprouts and onion rings and thin fries were VERY good, however, I was very disappointed that I did not enjoy the "Cali" burger I had ordered. It came with only about 1 Tbsp of carmelized onions could hardly taste them) and about 1 Tbsp of roasted tomatoes. PLEASE....put MORE onions on your burgers. Our waiter was VERY nice and gave good service. Also note: VERY VERY difficult to find a parking spot here...had to use the valet service :( We will not come back.
I would have like to have given a higher rating for ambience hit there are just tables and chairs. Our server was fantastic making suggestions and very attentive. The food was great! I'll definitely be back.
Always great service, nice people. Food is excellent.
Love this place, hands down my favorite burger. Try the manly burger and cheesy tots ❤
I've been going to Umami for years. I've been to the locations in Downtown LA, Santa Monica, and the West Village in New York. The food is always awesome and this time was no exception. But the service was absurdly bad. Like we literally thought we might be on candid camera. They didn't attend to us --- a lot of waiting when we didn't have basic things like silverware or when my friend's burger was rare. When he pointed out the burger was uncooked, the waiter looked at him confused and said how did you ask for it? My friend answered medium rare and then the waiter replied "okay so should I take it back and cook it Medium?" as if my friend was being unreasonable when we've all eaten many gourmet burgers and rarely complain about this kind of thing. The meat was literally cold. Then, they brought us a check without a check in it on accident. Just the empty leather booklet. I guess the waiter felt bad about that cause he offered us "waters to go," but that's just bizarre. After so many mistakes, the standard reply in customer service is generally to comp some part of the meal. Anyway...I still love umami but this whole experience was really quite unusual
