Umami is one of those places many of my friends are dying to go to when they're visiting from out of the town. I used to like it more when there weren't as many locations. Now that they opened so many in the Los Angeles area, it just doesn't seem to be as special to eat there anymore.
The burgers are definitely gourmet. The quality of the ingredients are excellent but the burger is a little bit expensive for its size. I enjoy the uniqueness of their burger but I definitely like an all-American style burger much more.
The most amazing thing I get at Umami is their truffle cheese fries. It's actually not on the menu but it's always available. Everyone seems to know about it because I see many tables with the order. The fries are cooked perfectly and the cheese is melted into a cheese puddle on the bottom of the bowl. You can scoop up the cheese with your fries. I seriously had to stop myself from licking the cheese off the bowl after the fries were gone.
The beer selection is excellent. They have many unique selections and several IPAs on their beer menu. They're also known for their Japanese whiskey. You can actually order a whiskey flight so you can taste several types of whiskey.

Umami Burger will ruin burgers for you. I've yet to taste anything close to the stellar Truffle Burger they serve. You owe it to yourself to go here. You won't regret it, I promise.
Their fries are thin-cut sweet potato fries, and are a welcome break from the standard fare.
There really isn't anything else to say. Just, go eat here and be happy.

I absolutely love Umami Burger. The chain has really expanded recently, but this is the only location that I have been to. I love the side walk patio and the decor is really cool in the restaurant. I recommend the truffle burger, but the man burger is pretty good too.

Truffled cheese fries and Diablo Blue burger....Mmmmmm Diablo
The portions are much to small for my American Appetite. Everything tastes amazing and is well presented but you really have to share 3 burgers and get and order of fries for two.

Yum yum Umami burger! Ate here for a good friends bday and took over the whole patio! I had the turkey bacon avocado burger which was fresh tasting but messy. I also got the sweet potato fries... they put cinnamon on them which I didn't really care for.
All in all it was a good meal! I would go back!
