Umami Burger - Costa Mesa
Impossible Sandwich terrific!! Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable.
We came back because we thought there were 100% grass fed burgers. Disappointed to find they are now grain fed ("finished"). Also, ordered well done and received very raw in the middle meat. Took a long time to get a cooked burger, everyone else in our party of 8 was done eating when the well-done burger finally got to us. Also, very noisy (not "energetic"). Our waiter was courteous.
The food is wonderful which a large enough variety for anyone to choose from but not so much variety that it’s overwhelming! Very well done menu, very impressed. Will say though that the food is heavy and you will fill up on a burger and some fries/onion rings.
Our waiter was wonderful, very attentive and pleasant.
They don't make it clear that every item on the menu is separate so when you order a sandwich and a side those are all charged for. Kind of a surprise when the check came.
VERY LOUD MUSIC, made it tough to hold a conversation so maybe not a great date place.
Communal seating so you may be at a "picnic table" with bench seating (with no backs to the chairs), so not very comfortable.
Meal was amazing though, the veggie burgers are incredible and the tots were to die for.
Great customer service from everyone! They were friendly and attentive. Impossible burger and vegan truffle fries were delicious! I will come back again and again. Happy customer!
Simply one of the best burgers you will find. Go for the taste, not the size or the price. The maple bacon fries are the perfect accompaniment. Service is always excellent and the prices are reasonable for the quality of food you receive. Whenever I have a burger fix I go to this spot.
Air conditioning turned up way too high Saturday night at 6. We were all cold!
This was great. Went here with my family (6 people total). We each ordered our own entree and then 3 fries for the table to share. The truffle fries were the favorite. Would definitely go back.
Pre-Segerstrom dinner. Food was ok. Really expensive for a burger, and every one was over done. Super loud. Server was great.
Best burger I've ever eaten!!!
Cold burgers and fries
They have four choices of the Impossible burger and all of them are delicious.
The truffle burger paired with onion rings is fantastic!
Burgers are $13-$15 and up. Beef is tasty but burgers are very small and don't come with any sides. Overpriced and seating and parking is very limited. Looks like a takeout restarant. Will not be back.
Terrible wait staff, will never return to the Costa Mesa restaurant. Had to many great experiences in Hollywood and these idiots have turned me off.
Had reservations for a party of 10. I know that large parties can be hard but we were literally half of the restaurant so they could have had another server assist. Service wasn’t great - only some of us got plates/ utensils for appetizers so we had to place the stems of the shishedo peppers we ordered on the table; no drink refills. Had to ask for napkins....
Food was fabulous! Excellent service. Drinks were great. Very low key and comfortable.
Delicious food. Kind service. Go early. Portions are small. Order dessert.
Great server! He was very knowledgeable and helpful.
I like the burger which is really tasty and the food came out pretty fast.
Burgers are delicious! Loaded tater tots are a little too big which makes the cheese overwhelming. Overall very yummy place and a little pricey.
Food quality and taste has really gone DOWN since I last ate there a while ago. We remembered it being so good...definitely NOT anymore. It was a huge disappointment. We are never going back. Our server was nice tho but that’s about it.
BEST BURGERS EVER!
My girlfriend and I come here as often as we can.
It’s our go to “date night” spot every time.
Parking is a nightmare. The place is in a tiny mini-mall and all the spots are usually filled and surrounding lots only allow parking for their customers
Great food, excellent service!!!
Really good food. Great beer selection! Try the manly burger!
Excellent burger and fries...parking was a hassle.
Really enjoyed this place. Been driving by here every day for over a year and finally have it a try and I’m so mad I haven’t been here earlier. They have vegan and vegetarian options which is why I really wanted to try this place. I got the impossible burger and it was delish! Will be back for sure. Lucky it’s only 2 min from my house :)
The burger itself was good but I would say this place is overpriced, overrated.
I tried the truffle burger and it was very tasty. I also tried the maple bacon fries and that was yummy goodness.
Great choices n price was reasonable. I cant wait to come back again n get some impossible burgers
Hamburger is definitely different flavor , it hits all the senses , little bit pricey but overall is great burger. Parking is bad during dinner. It has free valet parking in the back. Service is great will go again and try different burger on the menu.
We were visiting from Washington for the OC 1/2 marathon and Umami came up on our Google search for burgers. We totally enjoyed the food- delicious! The service and our waitress were great! We would definitely come back again when in the area and have also recommended Umami to our friends that live in California!! Thank you.

Yummy burgers and the help is cute. Can't beat that.
Delish! Love all the vegetarian options! Servers are great and it’s a fun place for a casual meal with FABULOUS tasting food.
Initial service was slow and unwelcoming. Eventually our server got started with us. The food came out promptly. Our waters stay filled. I have been to various Umami locations in LA & prefer them over this location.
