The service was excellent and the burgers perfectly cooked, but all a little flavourless. We asked for salt to pep them up a bit. The sweet potato fries were a bit off too. Like they had added sugar to them. Not like Amy sweet potatoes...More

We had the trio sliders... unlike any burgers we've ever had before. Really delicious! Paired off with beer and wine on the outside patio while people watching, made for a perfect afternoon.

In the interest of following my own previous review, I brought my husband to try the burgers. They were VERY good; however, not as great as the first time. Paul, our server, was excellent as was the hostess. The burgers were not served as hot...More

Burgers are just ok. They try to be foofy and they accomplish this well. Hipster galore and small cramped seating. Not worth the money or the hype. Plenty of burger places near by, try them first.More

The burgers were good, but I don't think they live up to the Umami designation in their name. Service was decent. Overall, I'd say they were very average.More

This is a great value hamburger place that also offers dishes for vegetarians. A portello can be substituted for any of their hamburger offerings. Nice salads and also one vegetarian main selection.

Nearby
Marina District
Beautiful homes, beautiful people, and a beautiful
backdrop of the Golden Gate Bridge welcome visitors to
the Marina. Originally the location for the
Panama-Pacific International Exposition in 1915 (whose
remnants can be seen at the Palace of Fine Arts), much
of the land was filled and flattened to accommodate a
world’s fair. That ample space has given way to a
jogger’s paradise at the northern edge of the city.
