This burger was so good. Also, it is nice to eat outside. The service is great. Try the burger and a regular fries. I didn't really care for the truffle cheese fries but I'm not a big fan of truffle.

Seriously great burgers. Can't go wrong with the Umami burger or Manly burger. According to the servers, the burgers tastes best when the meat is cooked medium-rare, I strongly suggest you order it that way. A little treat you'd like from their secret menu are the Cheesy Tots, you won't regret it.

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.

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.

Oh Umami burger! I was really excited to try you for the first time but unfortunately I was not impressed! Food: I ordered the original Umami burger and it was not what I was expecting! I hated the Parmesan cheese, I hated the sauce. I just did not like the burger. I also ordered truffle fries and they were just okay, not great! I've definitely had better burgers. I was really disappointed because I've been wanting to try Umami burger for such a long time but I was just not impressed. Three stars for great service though!

Very cool restaurant! Nice and quiet usually because it's not overly busy. The food comes out very quickly and perfect every time! Even took my insanely picky grandmother here and she had nothing bad to say!

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.

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!
