Umami Burger - Hollywood
Great options for carnivores, vegetarians and vegans. Quick and easy stop to cure your burger craving. Service is pretty decent.
The truffle burger is still phenom. Really bummed that the Royale is no longer on the menu though! That was my all-time favorite! Im also bummed that you can no longer do 50/50 truffle fries and maple bacon fries. But our server was awesome, and the food was delicious. The expanded dessert menu was exciting! We had the UFO. It was great, except I'll probably ask for no dulce de leche sauce next time. It made it a little too sweet!
Food is good, like other Umami locations, however service at this one has always been very sketchy. Food has always taken a long time to come out. We ordered salads as starters and burgers for our entrees, and one of the salads came out at the same time as the burgers, and the second salad never came. At that point, we would not want the salad if we already got the burgers. Also, there's only one-person bathrooms.
The burger patty was super thin and very tasteless the only thing you could taste was the sauce
Great food. Good atmosphere. Will go back soon. I had Brussels sprouts and i should’ve got 2 orders they were so good.
Unfortunately slow service detracts from the whole experience.
Good. Restaurant could use a refresh and food is good but need to up there menu/game. What was once interesting feels dated and needs a refresh
But the servers were great and very attentive .
We haven’t been here since the menu changes. Gone are the hatch burger and the turkey burger and the pickle plate. we don’t know why these items had to be removed because they were standard selections for us. Onion rings are always great.
We went for lunch and the place was fairly empty. I would have expected better service for how few people were there. The burgers were good. Not great. The fries are too skinny. The large order of fries which we were told was enough to share, was not.
Nice servers. Cold fries. Burgers weren’t hot either.
Average meal at an above-average price. Experience was less than the hype.
They didn't have our reservation so we had to wait 20 mins. Service was also a miss.
Great burgers and the people are awesome!
Great beer list and the food is delicious!! And our server was super attentive.
Wonderful burgers! One of the best I ever tasted!
And tee service was excellent!
Such a great place in the middle of Hollywood that doesn’t feel like it!
And the fries are dynamite!
My crew members got there before myself and apparently they forgot we were coming. But quickly corrected their mistakes and it was an amazing experience after this. Definitely coming back!
Ordered a sampler and cheese tots. Burgers were ok but cheese tots were to dye for. I highly recommend it
Come for the impossible burger. Skip the special sauce.
What a great place to go to on a weekday afternoon! Had such a great time and the food was DELICIOUS. Our server was super nice and attentive! Food quality was great and I will definitely be back!
Hidden little spot with an indoor and an outdoor eating. The outdoor courtyard is really lovely and secluded perfect for friend catch-ups.
Great food and service.
Service was stellar, loved the food. Quick and delicious late night option on a Saturday.
The music was too loud and we couldn’t talk amongst our table of five.
Great food and great service
Great place to grab a drink, have great food, and catch up with friends. The menu is friendly to vegetarian options as well, which was important to my friend. The burgers were reasonably priced considering being in LA/heart of Hollywood. The burgers lived up to their umami name and came with delicious sauces. The location of this particular Umami Burger was perfect as it was only a few blocks from the sights at Hollywood Blvd. Would return!
I've been to several Umami Burgers and this one did not disappoint in the way of taste & flavor. I'm happy that they have a few more Impossible Burger options now. Everyone in my party really liked their meal. The service, however, is lacking. It took at least 20 minutes before any food came out at all. We never did receive the tray of sauces, and it was towards the end of the meal that I realized we did not get it. No sooner did we receive our salads did all the burgers come. The timing of the food was not good at all. There should be a timely gap between appetizers/salads and entrees. We also didn't get the cheesy tots until towards the end of the meal.
The burgers were delicious; many beer choices. Friendly service
Terrible service did not have a host did not get food on time and just overall bad experience
Great food as always. On this night it was very busy so service was a little slow. Love Umami Burger!🍔
The impossible burger was amazing. I would definitely get it repeatedly.
A definite redo. Loved the Impossible burger.
Not great. They didn't have enough servers (our server told us that) and so we never really had anything we needed. They were out of most of the beer due to some error, we hate to wait forever for our sauces and our apps got cold. Our server was trying to keep up, not really his fault and I think he did his best, but were left having to track people.down for refills, the check etc. We sat there for half an hour waiting for out check in the end. That's nuts.
To top it all off, they didn't check me in under my reservation (also didn't honor my seating request even though it wasn't busy yet) so I got a notice from Open Table that I had been a no show. That was the nail in the coffin for me, I won't be back and won't recommend this location.
Food was good. Service was great.
The service was terrible the night we were there. Our waitress barely checked on us and our order took forever. They brought out the french fries first long before the burgers. We ordered brussel sprouts and we realized that they had bacon in them so some of us couldn't eat them because they don't eat meat. The manager offered to have them made without the bacon which was very nice but when they arrived there were huge chunks of bacon in them and the vegetarians unknowingly ate them. Just shoddy all around.
We had a large party of 10, and arrive an hour early. They accommodated us as quickly as they could. They hostess staff was very pleasant and accessible. The waiters were knowledgeable and gave great recommendation to the party of picky eaters.
The overall thought from the table was that they were very good burgers. Even the pickiest person stated they appreciated that they made the burger the way he wanted.
Great drinks were wonderful. Especially the Maple Bacon Old Fashion.
The service was great from each employee that we encountered. Our food was mostly absolutely delicious; there was just one side that didn't live up to description. The umami burger, brussel sprouts, and sweet potato fries were awesome. I was disappointed in my cocktail; although it was tasty, it tasted like they forgot the alcohol and it was just ginger soda (and it was expensive at that). Overall, I'd certainly recommend it and would come again.
The venue was nice. Located in an inner alley with outside eating options. We had theatre tickets for a show that started at 1:00pm and this place was an excellent option pre theatre. Food arrived promptly and very tasty. Great vegetarian options.
I decided to spend my birthday with two friends at Umami to enjoy an impossible burger. Our waitress was so sweet and brought me a nice dessert and was very attentive. It's not "fancy", but it did the job with delicious food and drinks. The Cheese tots are STUPID amazing.
The staff are very friendly and the service was great. The food was also delicious, although I’ve been to this restaurant twice and it wasn’t consistent in the plating up and presentation- neither bad, just different.
I’m a vegan and went for the impossible burger which was delicious but I was a little disappointed not to have a my Burger in vegan bun and wrapped in lettuce instead. Other than that it was all lovely and the edamame are the best I’ve ever tasted.
