Very good small burgers. Good beer. Maybe little overpriced.

Upscale casual burger joint with exceptional food! probably the best burger I have ever had. Simple menu features 10 unique burgers, including a turkey burger, an Ahi Tuna burger and a vegetarian burger. All of the components are made fresh in house daily! From the sauces on the table to the meat itself which they grind to suit daily on the premises. I had the manly burger and I don't think I've ever realized how much of a difference that freshness would make. A generous burger without being ridiculous. We also had the truffle fries and they were quite good. At the end of the meal, we were brought a dessert menu. the offerings there were ice cream sandwiches. again all ingredients made fresh daily in house. Irresistible! I had the daily special which was a sandwich made from 2 homemade chocolate cookies with salted chocolate ice cream sandwiched in between. YUM! They also have a bar area where you can sit serving beer and wine. I had a glass of their Seghesio Zinfandel from Paso Robles. A great wine.

I love a good burger but this was just over priced and underwhelming. I don't plan on going here again. While the burgers were average, the cost of the entire meal was shocking. I would recommend going somewhere else to get the same quality for less money.

I tried 4 of their burgers: Truffle, Umami, Earth, and Scallop/Bacon. The Earth & Truffle ones were quite good and comparable to tastier burgers from other restaurants. However, the Umami and Scallop were in a class of their own. I can't recall the last time I've had a burger as delicious as the Umami. It certainly didn't look very pretty, but it sure tasted damn good. As with most burger places, the first time always tastes the best. It gets pretty tiring after several visits, and the wait is always ridiculously long. I recommend their Soma location over this one because there are more tables there.

Everything is tasty and fresh - even all three table side condiments are house made. I wish burger portions were larger, but because of the quality of ingredients, your mouth is so happy and you can't complain. Service was super friendly - made a successful beer recommendation based on my companion's tastes, and gave a free birthday ice cream sandwich. We were not rushed at all when baby wanted to eat after us.

Best burgers ever, we can't get food like this where we live. Can't say enough good things about this place.

Serving only the best burgers around is what we’re all about, Scot! While we wish you could stop by Umami every day, it’s good knowing you were at least able to come by while you were in town. Thanks for that and for your great review!

Always a fan of Umami Burger. It never lets me down. This review is only for the exclusive Scallop Steak burger at this specific location. I would give it 3.5 stars. The first bite was amazing, the sea freshness of the scallop plus the saltiness of the sauce of the burger.Mmmmm. But then it goes into a semi bland taste. It is way too simple comparing to the rest of the burgers. Especially after having a bite from the manly burger ordered at the same table, I kinda wished I didnt try to be so adventurous with the new dish. Oh well, still, like I said, you can't go wrong with Umami. It is just about how much you want to satisfy your tongue and your stomach. :)
