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.

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.

This place is delicious as all f. Get the manly fries, so freaking good. While the waiter was just trying to be nice and help us, I felt like they were hounding us and being quite aggressive with helping us. It was annoying. Other than that, the food was on point. Definitely check it out.

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.

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. :)

There is major hype around this place, and I honestly think its purely for the brand. I've been to the location in LA, NY, and now SF. I think the burgers are just okay. They taste fresh, they are typically well cooked, but I wouldn't say there is anything special about them. The fries, however, are the main attraction. Get the sweet potato fries and when they ask you if you want all the sauces, say YES.

Love the burgers here. Come here if you are looking for a bit more of an upscale burger experience. The Manly Burger is my favorite. There are sometimes secret cheesy tots. Excellent beer selection.
