Stopped here on a whim (had never heard of this place before). Had a Manly Burger with a side of Thin Fries. It was absolutely incredible. Burger was fantastic - fresh, juicy and tender beef with flavorful sauce. Fries were perfectly seasoned and crunchy. I'd dare to say the best burger I've ever had.

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!

Believe the hype, Umami deliverers on all fronts: juicy, tender meat, perfectly cooked; served in a light and fluffy bun, with all sorts of toppings and extras. I tried their classic Manly Burger with som "manly" Sweet potato fries, and was blown away. They also have a nice selection of beers on tap, which goes perfectly with the burgers.

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.

Interesting location in Hollywood near Amoeba Records. Parking can be difficult and/or expensive. Forget about going on Sundays as the Ivar street market is in full swing until 2pm. The food is well worth the visit, however. The Throwback burger had 2 meat patties. Complimentary appetizers consisted of pickled cucumbers and beets. The Truffle fries were coated with a light...

Honestly I'm not a burger person. But the truffle burger is really worth to try, very juicy. Price is average. Waiters are super friendly. Environment is nice too. One thing is the portion, too big!

Staying in Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
Hollywood
Hollywood undoubtedly conjures up images of movie stars and high-end lifestyles, and to this day, tourists flock here from around the world to see the iconic Hollywood Walk of Fame, Chinese Theatre and to catch a glimpse of the famed Hollywood sign up close. Celebrity impersonators and crowds give these areas the feeling of an amusement park while many clubs and hotels fill up around the weekends for late-night partying - the Hollywood club scene is a haven for thumping music and table-side bottle service. But parties aren’t the only way to enjoy this area, many visitors come to the neighborhood to sit back with a picnic to watch a performance at the Hollywood Bowl and those looking to stay fit trek along nature trails in the Hollywood hills and in Griffith Park.
