We were looking for a burger supper in Hollywood and were intrigued by the menu at Umami Burger, which seemed to have some interesting options. We both went for the truffle burger and fries, and the taste didn't disappoint. However, we asked for the burgers...More

Food was so-so but very expensive. Not worth it. Just four of us without drinks came to over $62. Atmosphere was average. Service was a little slow.More

My family dined here and we liked it. We had the Umami Burger & the Crispy Diablo chicken sandwich, the diablo sauce is HOT but a nice hot ( I got my sauce on the side). We got the sweet potato fries, also good!

I love Umami because you can sub a portabello mushroom cap for any burger or entree on the menu. They will also sub a lettuce wrap for a bun, which has dairy and eggs in it. They are quite accommodating.

I had the best fries in my life in Umami. The burger was also great and I had to come back there to have another one before I left town.
