A modern interpretation of a city square, or piazza,with all the modern sensibilities. Great shopping, dining, movies and people watching venue.Cool fountains, a neat trolley and wonderful shops. A must see when in Los Angeles!

Absolutely loved The Grove! I went in the early evening for a bit of shopping, then to The Cheesecake Factory (which I highly recommend!!) Nice choice of clothing, sweets and accessory shops. Lovely atmosphere and fountain show. It was nice to slip through one of the allyways to the streets behind the Grove where you can find the market stalls... More

This is a nice place to hang out. Lots of food choices and shops. We came Saturday night and they had live music and trolley tours. Good farmers market in the middle of the mall too.

If your looking for a place to hangout or dine then the grove would be perfect ! It's atmosphere is quite amazing, very LA ish and fun ! However, I didn't find the grove to be the ultimate shopping destination as it lacks variety and it has a limited amount of shops compared to other shopping attractions in LA

Well maintained, diverse shopping area. Large parking (a bit expensive), nice restaurants and a lot of nice stores.

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. It's very twee-reminds me of Disney Main Street and it has a cute cable car. But the cable car just goes round and round a very small space. The... More

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

This place tops the list for tourist shopping destinations in LA - lots of top scale shops, beautiful landscaping and the chance to see a star, or just drop a few bucks. Actually, the restaurants top the shops for stellar performances, great choices and prices not too bad. If you feel like homier foods, just pop next door to the... More

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. There's a nice fountain and a cable car that runs through it as well as a movie theatre. My experience was ok. It was my first time and I'm glad I had... More
