My son and I visited The Grove a few days ago whilst spending time in LA. I read all the reviews and thought it must be something special. I was disappointed.

This is a nicely presented mall, its clean and benefits from being open air, however dont expect bargain prices, this is mainly shopping for the higher end pocket. There are good food options, but either book or be very flexible Overall, this is a good place, but there are far better options

The atmosphere at The Grove is cool. It's definitely nice to take a stroll and look at all the storefronts & people watch but that was about it.

Very nice place to spend a day, if you like shopping + a lot of good restaurants and cafes. And besides there's spectacular view from the roof-level parking.

Great place to shop without having to worry about cars / traffic. It hosts a nice collection of stores. The farmers market adjacent really adds to the experience. Parking tip - validate your parking at Nordstroms by the women's shoe section!
