we always love visiting the city walk going into the souvenir shops, there are always lots of fab offers going on! The food is cheaper here than inside the park although inside isn't that expensive! its a nice walk to go on before/after the park.

If you like bright lights and a clean, safe place to go shop and eat this is a good choice in the evening. I went to the comedy club here I don't recommend it as the waitress is cranky, the guy that seats people is so intense and at least 3 of the comedians were too raunchy. One was so... More

During my stay at the Universal Hilton, I frequently came here to getmy meals. Do not try Bubba Gump's. Pinky's was worth the try.

We had some time to kill before our flight so we walked around the city walk (plus it's free, except for parking). It looks like it would be really kinda fun at night but during the day it's boring! Just shops I wouldn't shop at and restaurants (for the most part they all looked good, but not great for lunch,... More

Found the city walk not as WOW as I thought it would be. it was a strip mall. Taking the bus/tram up the hill was ok but it takes so long and gets so crowded that we definitely thought about walking. I have been back to LA since but neither my twelve year old nor I will be returning to... More

As has been written before, this place consists mostly of chain restaurants with higher than usual prices for me. There is some street entertainment as well.

Our second hotel was near Universal and ran a free shuttle service so we went across on the first night in the area. It was impressive! It's quite busy though, so can distract from the effort they've put in. It has Hard Rock Cafe, Bubba Gump, Cinnabon etc. There are plenty of places to eat!

A decent walk, full of nationally known chain restaurants. OK for a short visit. Would be a little more interesting if it was oriented to be a little more SoCal local than a representation of national brands that could be found anywhere.

There's nothing wrong with CityWalk, I guess I just expected more. I was expecting it to be more like Downtown Disney in Florida and I would say this is about a 1/3 of the size. There were some great restaurants there but we didn't eat at any of them. There was a Hard Rock Cafe, Bubba Gumps, and several more.... More

City Walk had a number of restaurants including ones with lounges and a Jillian's. It was cute and a place to go if you are an out-of-towner and have no idea where you want to go out (like us).
