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.

I had the best fries in my life in Umami. The burger was also great and I had to come back there to have another one before I left town.

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!

We stopped in here for a quick bite to eat on a tour, they were very busy which is a good sign, although the only alternative for us to eat was a takeout which we were allowed to eat outside at a spare table; how does that work. The food was a hit and a miss, my wife's slider was... More

Stopped in for a quick bite and it was good. A little pricey for every day but a nice treat now and then. Staff was friendly and food was quick and fresh. Good if you need gluten free. Onion rings got 2 thumbs up from my husband. Nice place inside as well.

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.
