We made reservations and were seated immediately by one of the managers , who was very pleasant. I ordered the Marilyn Monroe cheeseburger, and my wife ordered the lobster bisque. My cheeseburger was a little overdone, but still juicy, and the lobster bisque was good,...More

The place was empty except for a few bar customers. We ran in to get out of the huge rains pouring down. We should have run the other way. Ordered combos consisting of burgers with bacon, etc, and fried thin onion rings. The food was...More

We wish to welcome you to The Hamburger Hamlet!

Like many of us who grew up in Los Angeles, The Hamburger Hamlet played a significant role in our friends and families lives. From dinner in Westwood before seeing a movie, to Sunday Brunch in Brentwood, The Hamburger Hamlet was always a home away from home known for simply marvelous food & drink.

Our memories include watching a very dapper man named Harry Lewis go table to table greeting his guests or seeing Marilyn Lewis working with the staff and attending to the guests needs. Still fresh in our memories is our favorite burger paired with a Haagen-Dazs shake, the famous lobster bisque and the apricot chicken wings.

So inspired by what The Hamburger Hamlet represented, that when we had the opportunity to take over such a historic brand, we could not resist the chance to bring it back to the proud tradition and foundation created by your former hosts, Harry and Marilyn Lewis and pay our respects to what they achieved.

Welcome back!

Your Hosts Kevin Michaels and Brett Doherty
