The food was awesome and the service excellent. My only complaint is each beer is $7.50 and a margarita was $12. This was for lunch.

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.

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.

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.

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.
