We went there for an early lunch. The food was very good, just like the original Hamlet. The service was pretty good. There were 6 of us and everyone had something different, but we were all pleased.

We wish to welcome you to The Hamburger Hamlet! Like many of us who grew up in Los Angeles, The Hamburger Hamlet played a significant role in our friends and families lives. From dinner in Westwood before seeing a movie, to Sunday Brunch in Brentwood, The Hamburger Hamlet was always a home away from home known for simply marvelous food & drink. Our memories include watching a very dapper man named Harry Lewis go table to table greeting his guests or seeing Marilyn Lewis working with the staff and attending to the guests needs. Still fresh in our memories is our favorite burger paired with a Haagen-Dazs shake, the famous lobster bisque and the apricot chicken wings. So inspired by what The Hamburger Hamlet represented, that when we had the opportunity to take over such a historic brand, we could not resist the chance to bring it back to the proud tradition and foundation created by your former hosts, Harry and Marilyn Lewis and pay our respects to what they achieved. Welcome back! Your Hosts Kevin Michaels and Brett Doherty
