I want to like this Umami Burger location so badly, mostly due to it being right next to The Grove. Sadly, the place is almost always packed, and understandably, the staff is way overworked and it shows in their service; though they certainly get an 'A' for effort. You'll find a wide range of delicious, high quality burgers with a unique and pricey twist, and the beverage menu is almost as long as the food section. Check out their Specialty Burger part of the menu, and don't forget to order a side of their finger-licking Truffle or Sweet Potato Fries to go with your burger. Of course, if you're there during the Holiday Season, forget all that! You HAVE to try their never-before-tasted Pumpkin Spice Latte Burger. It is Food Porn to the extreme, and so craveably special, you'll never see regular burgers the same way again.

Eats: Truffled Poutine Burger Let's get this straight: Umami burger is heavily hyped by as many people as those who wonder what umami even means. Regardless, hype brought me in to this place. Like many other LA establishments, it looked like Umami was converted from a tiny storefront. It did not look like space and capacity would suit this location, but I cannot comment since while the dining room was full, there was a vacant equally sized outdoor patio. Thankfully I got a spot underneath 2 heaters, but I could not say the same for most other seats in the patio. The Truffled Poutine Burger that I ate wasn't a normal menued item at Umami. The limited edition item was a bunless medium rare patty, truffled cheese, sprinkling of shiitake, covered in truffled gravy, and served over fries. Almost low carb, till you get to the bottom. It was a tasty meal with much of the flavor coming from the truffled gravy. I didn't get the same truffle sensation as I get eating other truffle fried goodies (like tator tots!), so it was a bit of a let down. I was pretty intrigued by the amount of dipping sauces, but I did limit myself to just the garlic aioli. I'd like to try the jalapeno ranch next time as I usually have ranch with my fries. This place will be revisited, and when I do, I'll have the namesake Umami Burger.

I love Umami Burger, but not this one. Ordered a Manly Burger with a friend after enjoying one at a different location a few weeks ago. It was to salty and had a taste that was difficult to swallow. I had to drink over three glasses of water while eating to help me intake the burger. Not to mention I had to wait over 5 mins before a waiter even came by so that I may ask for more water. If anything was going to be good I thought the fries with the Umami ketchup would be, but I was let down again. The fries also were showered in salt. My table itself was wobbly but atleast the waitress offered to adjust it. The restrooms felt just as dirty as any fast-food restaurants restroom. In conclusion service was ok, food was poorly done, restrooms were bad and it was a bad experience. If you want a great Umami Burger that I know you'll enjoy and Love, I reccomend you go to the locations in Hollywood. (Try the Cali Burger)

I am very pleased with this place. I heard that they really spent time on figuring out what tastes really good to our taste buds and they nailed it. Wow it was really delicious. I really love how they melt the cheese on top of the burger. The meat was very juicy and dripped down my plate which is what I really like. It was really good.

This was the first time I decided to check out Umami and it was quite a disappointment from the service, to getting a burned AND yet still cold burger. My boyfriend (now ex) was not happy with the food at all and neither was I. I expect when you go to an expensive ala cart burger joint that for the price it's should be better than In-n-Out or Hamburger Habit well this location is not equal to my under $10 burger spots. Really this location is more on par with McDonalds where it's tasteless, bland and cold but when you pay $3 for a burger you don't expect much. If your craving a great burger at the Grove I'd skip overpriced long line Umami!

I LUV IT!!! Their food is delicious! They make it so juicy and good. Their ketchup is good also, they make it so unique. Well everything they make is so unique. Everything is good their. I just had the Original without mushrooms (with my meat cooked at a medium well) and once I took 1 bite out of it I felt like I was in hamburger heaven!!! It's delicious! You definitely can't get enough of their food. But it could get pricy for 1 burger is about 15 - 19 dollars. I went with my Aunt and my Grandma and we spent on total for about 64 dollars. It CRAZY! Just for the 3 of us. But other than that it was DELICIOUS!

The customer service is nice though I have to say, since the guy kept coming back to see how we were doing. This place is overly hype by people it seem, since I had better burgers at cheaper prices or even at the same price.
