Def one of the best places in LA to grab some food and do some shopping. It can be super touristy but it's not overly annoying. Lots of good stores and tons of good food in Farmers Market. Always a good place to chill and people watch too. Live music and different entertainment things on the green too. Aces. Follow... More

The Grove is an LA outdoor mall that offers so much-great shopping and restaurants-an overall fun place to spend a relaxing .day.while walking around in the warm California sun. Although we did not see any that day, it is also a place that celebrities frequent-so be on the look out if you go! The Farmer's Market is right there, too.... More

every type of ethnic food you can eat is right here. My 2nd time here from S.F. and good food as always. I see people with 3 piece suits on here eating the various food. Also some gift shops, mostly touristy junk.

The Grove is a great place to go if you have some time to kill and nothing to do while in LA. It's an open air mall and the environment is great. They have lots of stores there, ranging from Coach to Barnes and Nobles to Forever 21. If you want quality over price, this would be the place to... More

Pretty fountain, good music, great stores, fun atmosphere- What else could you want? For me, FOOD and it was good. The farmers Market had fresh fruit and veggies. I bought some fruit to go. kiwi berries, which I had never had. They had stands for just about everything. Chocolates, dried fruits (I bought the ginger sugared) popcorn, etc. The food... More

The Grove is my favorite mall to browse, people watch and just hang out at. I missed their "movies in the park" this summer, but I've enjoyed that as well over the years at The Grove. We did take in an afternoon movie at the cinema located within the mall. Their fountain is beautiful and there is music that plays... More

We've been traveling all over LA county to the typical tourist places (Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, Hollywood, etc.) but The Grove is my favorite. Great shopping, restaurants, fountain, and over all scenery. It's got something for everyone. We ate at Morels and had a great experience, although it was pricey.

The Grove was one of our LA highlights! Parked right next to the farmers market, the grove is beautiful, clean, has lovely music playing as you stroll around, mood lighting, fountains, nice shopping and some nice restaurants and cafes! It was a big relief to get there after being in Hollywood for a while and getting a bit overwhelmed by... More

I purchased the family night deal that included movies and a 3 course meal. We thought we would get there early and look around but unless you want to buy all designer brands it might be worth going somewhere else. We had our 3 kids and trying to find a movie was impossible, we ended up taking them to the... More
