The plant (vegan) burger was tasy, the edamame were out of this word, I could have eaten several portions! Good choice and catered for all, server was very friendly and helpful :)

Wow! I have to say when my husband brought up going here I wasn’t the least bit excited. He and my daughter are huge burger fans so I basically tagged along. But after eating the Sunny side burger I was quickly converted! It was delicious and NOT the typical plain burger most other “gourmet” burgers are. We liked it so much my daughter asked if we could get it delivered the next night and knowing I typically don’t want a burger once a week much less twice, I quickly agreed. It was just as good delivered! Well done! Now just wish there was one of these much closer to me.

Burgers cooked to perfection with interesting and varied topping choices. The truffle burger was our favorite for sure. Highly recommended!

There are a lot of burgers on offer in the US - but I think this is the best. Umami Burger is the perfect size, beautifully cooked and absolutely delicious. Throw in home made ketchup and some outstanding beers, and this place wins hands down.

I came here specifically to try the Impossible burger having been a vegetarian for a very long time and considering myself a veggie burger connoisseur. It lived up to the hype. Great burger with excellent flavor and texture. Also tried the cheesy tots which I have to say are some of the best tots I’ve ever had. Brioche bun is a nice touch. Yummy.

We loved introducing you to all these delicious dishes, and hope you'll be back for more! Gratefully, Umami Burger Santa Monica
