I really liked The Grove! It has fantastic characteristic in a beautiful environment! The shops are typical like any mall, but somehow this place makes you really want to buy something even if you like not a shopping person (like me). It is like a nice little city center. And the lights in the evening makes it more fairy tale... More

A colleague of mine on the same trip requested to buy a display item (astronaut helmet) and was told he cannot do so. Crazy as it sounds. The shop manager prides on "getting to a yes" as part of their service tagline. We eventually managed to get it but without a box which they claimed they do not have it.... More

I always goto the Grove when I visit LA. So many restaurants, many stores, and nice to walk around. There is even a trolley to take you when u need a rest. The Farmers market is a delight, right next door. So many stalls to choose from. And there is valet parking, entertainment, and just a nice way to spend... More

This is in my opinion a very cute place to shop in LA. It's not that big, and basically it is a shopping mall spread along a kind of internal street. It seems very much like the main street from a Disney park: it's a street where the shops are placed in both sides, as well as nice restaurants, a... More

I wish we had a place like this in Australia. It is lovely sitting under the stars whilst watching the dancing fountain, doing some shopping and after a bite to eat you can catch a movie.

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

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

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
